If we find out this little one is another boy I don't think we're quite prepared. I'm still torn whether or not to use another 'an' ending name. As of right now we've decided to but if I love another name that much more than I will push to do otherwise. Anyhow, here are some names that I like. If anyone has any other to add that I may like, please do. TIA!

August
Porter
Gray
Breccan
Declan
Harlan
Griffin
Simon
Theron
Sherwin
Bowen
Patton
Sutton
Bannon
Rafe
Blaine
Hugh/Hughes
Bridger
Rhett
Angus
Taran

If you go with an "an" ending, my first choice would be Piran or Pieran (both pronounced as PEER-an). Piran is a Cornish name (it's on Behind the Name if your interested).

Thanks Elle! I have been feeling okay these days, thanks to the 2nd trimester. We have our u/s next month. :)

Kae (dr_kae) had suggested Piran to me a long while ago. I do think I like the Pieran spelling, that's what I had on my list. I'm not sure if it's too soft next to Ethan, Logan, and Corban. Another thing that crosses my mind is that my twin sister has a nephew named Pearson/Pierson (I forget how they spell it) but I guess they never see each other. You are right in that I like nn's and I really love Pier or Piers. I will give this name a 2nd thought. :)

I think Declan would go very well with your other kids.

Unfortunately it's not high on the list. I think it may becoming too mainstream...

I know it's pretty popular right now but what about Greyson?
It has a similar enough ending to your other boys and you could call him Grey (which was on your list)

I love Declan, and agree it's becoming more popular but I don't think it's tipping the scales so much that you'd run the risk of having two Declan's in class together.

Other names that popped into my head were:
Camden (I love Cam....just not Cameron)

Kieran (Kiran for an alternate spelling)

Odin (my friends son....I just love it and while they don't use Odie as a nn I find it cute)

Coleman (another friends son....his middle name is Jefferson and they were going to call him CJ but he's a Coleman nothing else)

Lincoln (this was a friends choice after they decided against Lennon, which I preferred but you'd have to be a big Beatles fan to go with it)

I do like Grayson but it's not on the list because of it being popular.

Camden - too trendy and I don't want to repeat initials

Kieran - too feminine to my ears

Odin - too rhymey next to Logan

Coleman - too close to Corban and again the initial thing

Lincoln - no repeating initials, I do prefer Lennon over Lincoln though

With my boys' names all ending the same I definitely don't want any of them starting the same. Thanks for the list but most are trendier than what I'm looking for.

I kinda thought most would be a bit too trendy - it was an off the top of my head list...no real thought put into it other than 'what have I heard recently'
*grin*

my vote goes for Declan or Harlan....both sound strong and fit well with your other names
