Need help big time! BakaOnna Due May 28 (boy); TTC since Aug 2017; 1 child; Upstate, NY, United States 826 posts

We just found out baby #2 is... another boy! Okay, not unheard of in my family, I'm the only girl in a couple decades. That being said, a LOT of names are already taken. And my husband has only a brother and a million uncles to boot. 

Our first LO is Arthur. It took FOREVER to come to this decision. We love the name, its perfect. So... now what? 

Over the last few days my husband has shot down a whole bunch of names I'd consider. We like fantasy, mythology, literature, my husband only shows interest in names with a good story to them. I love Irish names, big irish family but hence many already claimed. But it can't be too far out there - we had big protests when my husband advocated Odin for Arthur. No enemies of Arthur in legends. Something great but not too complex, our last name is a doozy!

I need names, please! I'm exhausted, I've been over and over websites. Something that fits okay with Arthur Vincent. Something that they won't be the 3rd one in their class. Something that isn't taken (sorry know that can't be helped but think - Chris, Dan, Mike, Brian, Philip, Nick, Mark...).

I'd stick with the Camelot theme if it were me. Lancelot (call him Lance), Gawain, Percival, Lionel, Gareth, Galahad.

Thanks everyone, keep up the suggestions. I'm going through the names.

We did name our dog Perceval. Lol.

Hmm Lancelot betrayed Arthur, I think had an affair with his wife or something? Husband loathes the name. :p

Husband has already shot down some of those names. There is a Killian already. 

Griffin is neat, our last name is a problem though. It starts with a G and 10 letters long but 2 syllables... and just slaughters it together. :(
