I've been loving Graham lately! I think it'd fit along with my theme of boys here: Archer, Roman, and Graham? Archie and Graham are both scottish so that probably links them a bit. Anyway, I have a few middle name idea's, but I'm opened to more. I'd love some opinions though!! Graham Wilson, Graham Theo, Graham Michael (to honor Mike?), Graham Jason (Jasons a favorite of Mikes), Graham Hunter, Graham Chase, Graham Darwin?

Finn is another favorite of mine, though not sure if I'd use it in real life.. I'm so back and forth on it. I've had Finn Christopher on my list forever and its getting kinda... bland. I'd love suggestions here!!

Also, I'm thinking about Polish girls names lately. I think the idea of using a Polish name is nice, as both Mike and I are part Polish. I guess we could search into French and Italian names as well as we both have a mix of that in us (on my behalf, I'm mostly french, a chunk Italian, and a little Polish and Lithuanian lol). Mike has part French and Italian from his mothers side, but idk what he has on his dads side besides the Polish (which is very obviously in him via surname and his skintone and such). I'm having a hard time with Polish names though cause I'm unfamiliar with the language, pronunciations, etc. A lot of names look very similar to English names and I could always use English variants instead I suppose :/
Alina
Ania
Brygid (Bridget?)
Elwira (Elvira)
Ewa (kinda like Eva)
Franciszka (Francesca)
Kaleen
Kasia / Kassia
Katarina / Katrine
Katy
Lidia (Lydia)
Lila
Natia (maybe Nadia?)
Roza (Rosa)
Rozalia (Rosalia?)
Sylwia (Sylvia)
Tesia
Weronikia (Veronica)
Wikitoria (Victoria)
Zuzanny (Susanna)

Not sure if I necessarily love any of them, but some are growing on me. I could see myself using Lydia / Lidia.. and Lidia is a name that doesn't look to crazy when spelled Polish and would show through for her ethnic background and all! If anyone knows any polish names, suggest away ;) Either way... opinions on the above? :)

Thanks so much!!

You know I have a bias for Graham/Graeme :-P I like Graham Theo, Graham Michael, Graham Hunter, and Graham Chase from your list.

WDYT of: Graham Keith (:P), Graham Isaac, Graham River, Graham Archer, Graham Oliver, Graham Wyatt, Graham Jasper, Graham Jace, Graham Jack, Graham Kyle, Graham Daniel, Graham Micah, Graham Toby, Graham Tobias, Graham Heath, Graham Hugo, Graham Sean, Graham Scott, Graham John, Graham Caspar.


I like Finn, and I can see it aging well. Finn Christopher is okay, but I do agree that it's a bit bland.

WDYT of: Finn Samuel, Finn Jackson, Finn Elijah, Finn Roman, Finn Samson, Finn Joshua, Finn Lleyton, Finn Timothy, Finn Andrew, Finn Harrison, Finn Harvey, Finn Elias, Finn Riley, Finn Greyson, Finn Tyler, Finn Wyatt, Finn Robert, Finn Alexander.


I think using a Polish name would be cute, and looking into French and Italian names would be cute too :)

I like: Alina, Brygid, Ewa, Kasia, Lidia, Roza, and Rozalia. Do you want middle suggestions for any of these?

Thanks ladies!!

Graham seems to be pretty universally loved around here, I love it! ;) Its good hearing positive reinforcement ;) Its a name Mike and I are considering if we have another boy, I think :) I think he's pretty set for the first, but I genuinely think its an option for a second! Or maybe a third, if we have so many lol. I like Graham Benjamin, Graham Isaac, Graham River, Graham Jack, Graham Hugo :D I would adore Graham Jack a little more if they both weren't one syllable :/ (I heard the English people say Graham / Graeme as gray-uhm? Americans say it as gram, rhyming with ram I suppose haha). So the one syllable thing clashes a tad. But I still adore it <3

Haha Finnegan is nice, but it makes me think of the song "I once knew a man named Michael Finnegan" haha! I sang it to Mike once as "I have two men named Mike and Finnegan!" And he vito'd Finnegan soon after :/ He still likes Finn though <3 I like Finn Jackson, Finn Leyton, Finn Elias, Finn Riley, Finn Greyson, and Finn Alexander! <3 I think Finn Greyson is really nice actually.. hmm!

I like a lot of french names, I've not looked much into Italian ones yet <3 Haha Lydia Eden and Lydia Juliet are beautiful! Though Lydia Juliet is far too long with our surname, 3 syllables <3 If you'd give some middle name suggestions for Ewa / Eva, Lidia / Lydia, or Roza / Rozalia I'd love it! :) I'm really loving those three particularly, I think :D

Here are the ones I like from your lists, Addy!

Bridget Eden
Bridget Caroline
Bridget Mae
Bridget Isabel
Bridget Elise

Lila Caroline
Lila Juliet
Lila Evangeline
Lila Jane
Lila Eloise

Rosalia Jane
Rosalia Elaine

Lydia Mabel
Lydia Reese
Lydia Eden


Thanks so much Hannah and Addy!! I really appreciate the input!! ^_^
