So we're due in about 2 weeks and haven't yet settled on our baby boy's name! We do have a few front runners but at this point can't see the forest for the trees... This of course happens because we had a girl's name from day one...!

Our last name is Baumgartner and we're giving the little guy daddy's father's name in memoriam... So thus far we have:

Leo Agass Baumgartner
Theo Agass Baumgartner
Owen Agass Baumgartner
Arlo Agass Baumgartner

And an outlier:

Milo Agass Baumgartner (our dog's name is Miko though...)

We like them all but just can't settle on any of these, and lately we get enamored with other names we hear in passing or see out and about... so feel free to toss out suggestions...

So...help!

Thanks in advance,
Mom, Dad and Baby ?

My favorite is Arlo! It's different and cute.

All of the names are good though. Couldn't go wrong!

I love Owen and Arlo! My vote goes in for Owen as #1 because I think it sounds best with your surname, and it's incredibly handsome!

My favorite is Owen! So handsome. :)


Although I love all the other names, they all end in O and when combined with the middle and last name it seems a little vowel heavy to me..or maybe I'm just crazy! But, I agree with Addy, I think Owen also sounds the best with your surname.

I don't much like Owen, probably because I've been hearing it so much lately. The others are all pretty even for me. My top pick would have to be Theo, closely followed by Arlo.

Thanks for your responses everyone! We still feel so torn about the name but your comments do help. I just hope we have a name before we head to the hospital!

Truth is, you don't have a bad option, so whatever you pick I'm sure will be great! :)
