i'm not familiar with any of these names. Breyvin looks the nicest written down I think. Could you just call him Brey?

I like Breyvin the best, too. I think you'll be correcting a lot of people if you use the "von" version, but if that isn't a big deal then I'd go with Breyvon.

Hi strawberrywild and welcome!

Congrats on your upcoming little one too!

As for names, I liked Breyvon the best.

I like the spelling Brey instead of Bray...I'm not sure what the origin is for Breyvin, but I guess it's another way to spell Braven which means Courage.

When I was pregnant with my ds we couldn't agree on a name either.

Tulip, I forgot about the V and W thing when we named Victoria. I wanted to call her Heather but avoided that because of the "th" for DD's family. (The most difficult word is "vowel" which has both in it and I've heard it pronounced "wowow". I do have to tell DH that is it important for words like wet and vet.)

Yes, V and W's can be issues.

Just in case anyone is curious, strawberrywild is in my expecting club and she and her DH ended up choosing Xavien for their little monkey.

I really like that! What happened with the Breyvin variations?

I think they just couldn't find one that worked for them -- not really sure, though.
