I am not sure you want to name your son after your dead son (I am sorry for your loss) because he cannot take his place. Try something unique for him, something simple, go to a site and print out a bunch of names and check off ones you like...give your DH the same list, and have him do the same. Compare lists and narrow down the ones you both like. My DH and I did that as we were having a heck of a time choosing a name for our bi-racial/cultural child. After many arguments, we did this exercise and finally came to a concensus. Good Luck
Thanks, we kinda did that, but didn't like each other suggestions? so i'm looking for something new...or put together, something i wouldn't have thought of.
It's hard to explain why i wanted to give my new son my dead sons name (Curtis)...as a middle name (not first) but i thought it would be a sign of respect and honor to him. (my 3 boys are all named after relitives, mostly dead) I don't look at this being morbid either?
When my dead son was alive, i wanted to nick his middle name...Peter if i ever had another son as a first name? but i guess that's no-no.
MY son, if I'm carrying a boy, will be Gabriel, but I also love the names Dominick, Parker,Colter/Colten(colts fan) and I have always loved Alexander. Good luck, picking names can be tough...Gabriel was the only boy name me and hubby loved and could agree on (been there w/ the not agreeing, its a pain!)
I like the name Beck! Have you thought about mixing around the letters of Curtis and see what you come up with? I also love the name Roman. That's what I wanted to name my son but my partner didn't like the name ): My Dad's name is Myron and I mixed the letters to come up with Romyn. I thought it was perfect and still wish I could use it. But we both have to like the name and there were some he chose that I definitely did not like. We are naming our son Broderick James but will call him Brody for short (already do!).
Parker, seems to be getting more popular, never thought of that?
Zachary was one of our names for our no 2 son, along with Harry and Alfie, but my dad took them? and so did 3 of my friends...so there a no-no..lol. My son's middle names are Steven,Francis and Peter, so 6 names out altogether..lol I'm running out.
I will try and mix Curtis's name up and see what i come out with?? Good idea, thanks.
Beck was my husbands idea, also he is a big fan of Beck the singer! It's kinds growing on me?? O well still 16 weeks to decide..ahh.
You have a Maxwell?! How awesome! We're naming our ds that...due in August!! I love it!!
I also like Noah. DH does not! (Must be a guy thing) I like Owen, Carter, Porter (my maiden name), Isaac, and I also like the name Liam. Middle names we are planning on using Reed for Maxwell's middle name. Other middle names we'll use if we have anymore boys are David (FIL) and Gregory (my dad).
Matthew (but you have a Maxwell and the names seem pretty close)
I don't think it would be morbid to use Curtis for the middle name. As long as you and your husband are in agreement and you aren't trying to "replace" him with this baby. I think it would be an honor to him.
I just thought I'd mention this regarding Curtis' name. A good friend of mine is named Scott Francis. He was named after his brother who passed away in infancy named Francis Scott. My friend never really cared for that at all. (They do call him by his middle name though which is what the deceased baby was called) I think if you were to use Curtis for a middle name, it would be fine...but I wouldn't ever refer to the new baby by his middle name. :)
elijah, hayden, brant, trent, cambrien, tanner, lex, kayden, kent, sterling, landon, whyatt, brenden... these are a few nice names for little boys... hope you find the perfect name for you and you husband to agree on :-)
Here are several more suggestions of the boy names I love. Maybe you will like one!!! ....
Jayden (my son's name and I love it!!)
Jack...love this name too!
I would also suggest that you not name this child after your son who you so sadly lost. Let him have his own unique name. How about since Curtis's initials were C.P. maybe honor him by giving this baby the same initials. Just a thought! Like Collin Patrick, or Connor Phillip for example.
Hey Jayden's mommy! Our son is Jayden Andrew and I LOVE the names you have picked! We are hoping for a girl next. Hopefully conceiving in a few months, but we wouldn't find out the sex until the baby is born. I love to be surprised. I thought for sure Jayden was a girl....BOY were we surprised! If we have a girl next...I love the names Cadence Paige or Carleigh Jayde. I would have to narrow down my many boy names I love! Nice talking with you:-)
Hey! I love those names too! I hope BABY DUST TO YOU!!! I did not know with my son Jayden if I was having until he was BORN. Girl, I could not wait I had to find out with this baby!!! Oh I had a girl name I was gonna tell you I had
Jaylee Picked out thought I would tell ya
I've always been a fan of Old English, Celtic and Gaelic names. My son's name is Trevor (and I love it so much, even writing his name looks so handsome to me). I wanted to pick a name for him that was masculine and not uncommon, but not overwhelmingly common (such as Connor--no offense to anyone with a Connor). I don't want my son to be one of three or four Trevors in his second grade class, for example. I also wanted him to have a name that I can see him having as an old man.
Other names I like (all English, Celtic, and Gaelic in origin), and considered for my son, or for a future son:
Rhys (pronounced Reece)
For a middle name, I think you should keep Curtis in mind. Family names are important and have significance and carry honor. My son has two middle names because my boyfriend and I wanted to keep family name traditions and honors. Trevor's first middle name is that of my grandfather, and his second middle name is the middle name of my boyfriend's father.
