for the same blue collar feel, how about
Sawyer Finn
Sawyer Cole
Sawyer Max


or you could ask your mom if she would mind. You aren't likely to use the middle name that often anyway.

Jackson is a good alternative, but he has the potential of having 3 last names. Sawyer Jackson "Smith". Kind of odd. Personally, I say go with Jack. This is your child and you can't let another person's hang ups stop you. Unless the older Jack was a criminal or something, and as long as he has no part in the family now, I say the name is perfectly ok. Go for it!

I know of a little boy named Sawyer Jaxson. You could try Sawyer Jacoby, Sawyer Jake (I agree thats good), Sawyer Jackob (still get the spelling Jack in there), or you could just say it has nothing to do with the ex he never crossed your minds. You are the parents so name your child what you like. They will get over it once that little face appears. Or they wont and it's their loss.

I love that name. What I keep telling everyone is its not their child :) You will be happy with what you want, and you don't ever want to regret not picking the name you love!!!!

Wow, I just realized right now how hard it is to find a good middle name for Sawyer...
Anyway, as adorable as the name Jack is, pairing it after Sawyer sounds blunt. Sawyer Jackson works.
And if your last name is one sylable I think you might want to try more than one in a middle name otherwise it's Saw-yer-dun-dun.

Or Try:
Sawyer Scott
Sawyer Travon
Sawyer Dawson
Sawyer Kelton
Sawyer Branson
Sawyer Brown
Sawyer Carson
Sawyer Blake

My brothers name is Jake and my oldest sons name is Jake so I think Sawyer Jake or Jackson would work. Or my friends sons name is Sawyer Caden if you want to steer clear out of Jack.
