I'm not sure I made the right name choice for my 2 month old and I'm thinking of changing it. Right now it is Ian Arlo Bleu D'alessandro. I love the name Arlo Bleu but not sure about Ian. It's a good name (Ian) but maybe a bit boring? My current short list is:

Max Bennett
Arlo Maxwell
Arlo Bennett
Dominic Bennett (Nico)
Eliot Otto
Otto Bennett
Otto Bleu

I like all of the names and can't decide on a combination. Please help! rearrange them, add a suggestion, anything!

I really like Arlo Bleu as well...and I kind of like Arlo D'alessandro. At first I thought it would be too rhyme-y...but it works <_<

However Otto D'alessandro is a bit much O!

I like Eliot D'alessandro & Dominic "Nico" D'alessandro as well but Max D'alessandro can't compete.

I think Arlo is my favorite of your first name options followed by Eliot & Dominic "Nico" I think I'd like Nico even more if you used it as a stand alone first name rather than just a nickname.

What about Nico Eliot D'alessandro? or keep Arlo Bleu D'alessandro and just drop Ian. I think Arlo Bennett is nice but Bennett doesn't really fit style-wise.

I agree with most of what Katie said...
But I personally adore Max Bennett. <_<

I absolutely adore how it is now. I think Ian Arlo Bleu has a really good flow and balance, so if it were me I wouldn't change it. Plus if you decide when he's older that you would prefer Arlo you can always call him by his middle name.

However, if you've absolutely made up your mind on changing it, I think the best option would be to change it to Arlo Bleu D'alessando.
