Hi ladies,

DH and I are still having some trouble settling on a name (though I know we still have lots of time).

From your list, I like Theodore (did I kick off a new trend there??) and Henry best. I think Theodore would flow nicely with your surname but yes it would be a very musical sounding name. Henry is also a nice flowing name. Eric would be an interesting contrast to your surname as its a brisk, hard sounding name.

I vote for Henry, Eric, and Theodore, in that order.

I think Henry is just so classic. There's a lady in my LLL group that has a 3 mo. old named Henry and it fits him perfectly. Eric is nice and short and with the two syllables, goes nice with your last name. I like Theodore (we need more Theos around this board, j/k!) if you were going to use the NN Teddy. I think Teddy Andreo has a nice ring to it.

I personally like the name Seth- I wanted to use that name but DH won't have it as it sounds too much like a bad word in his language

Tough choices huh!?

Personally, I like "Eric" the best with your last name. Henry second best. Seth I like the least, and everything else falls somewhere in between.

I think boys names are so hard! We talked names before we knew the sexes and NEVER agreed once on a boys name! Best of luck!

I really like Eric and Henry with the whole name in front of me.

I think 'Eric Andreo' and 'Henry Andreo' both flow nice & smooth. Seth is my third pick.

'Theodore Andreo' is a bit rhymey for me (with 2 strong "O"s)... 'Thaddeus Andreo' is a bit of a mouthful... and Luther is so mature & masculine to me that I can't picture a baby boy with it!

I Honestly think that Theodore is the best one that flows. My friend just had a little boy (I have a little girl) and she did some research that said that boys with "different" or "unique" names have a harder time in school. THey named their little guy Henry. and I am now totally in love with that name as well. and it's so not what I would have thought they would have picked. She is a very outgoing, creative person, so I assumed her sons name would follow, but I totally love it and it fits him.

And from my experience (not sure if this is your first or not) but We had a list of 2 names and went into the birth and then picked. We were dead set on Sophie Marie for our little one and she came out and I looked at her and said nope, she is going to be Gabriella Lorraine..and it totally fits her, I can't imagine her being a sophie.

I'm with Kate - I love the name Eric. It has a strong, masculine sound and goes well with your last name. I'm also with Ash, I don't like a lot of names that are too short (so Seth is just ok for me), but because Eric is two syllables, I like it. Also it's my uncle's name and brother's middle name, so it has nice associations for me.

I don't really care for the name Thaddeus, it looks beautiful spelled out, but it's kind of a mouthful?

The others - Theodore, Henry and Luther, I'm pretty neutral on.
