    I still really like Bronson but OH isn't as keen anymore.
    We went througn a LONG list together and we both came up with this list:

    -Bronson (my fave)
    -Reef
    -Clayton
    -Landon
    -Tyler
    (i like those ones..i let him add these next ones to be nice-but NO!))
    -Harrison
    -Mack
    -Lonnie


    It's soooo hard!!!:wall2:

    I love Bronson, Reef and Tyler - for some reason Clayton makes me think of Dallas!!!!

    Your OH's choices aren't as bad as mine. My OH is gunning for Loic (pronounced Lowick) for a boy WTF!!!! No idea where he came up with that one!

    I think Tyler is perhaps a bit more common but i do like it. Oh likes all names that end in 'ny' (benny, lenny, etc)
    I'm trying to push Bronson but saying he could be Bron for short, or Bronny ;)

    I like Tyler and Harrison! Bronson is really cute too!

    When I say Landan I just sound like I'm trying to say London in a cockney accent lol!

    I Love the name Bronson, it is unusual but not too far out there iykwim? Shortening the name to bronny is a good comprimise. And bronny does sound cute! I would persevere and see of oh comes round. But if not I also really like Harrison, which could also be shortened to Harry if oh would prefer?

    that's just it, I don't like Harry...in my head, Harry is a posh ginger kid. Nothing wrong with that, but i'm not having a posh ginger kid! lol

    I still love Bronson with Bron or Bronny for short.
    Not sure if I suggested this to you before, but how about Brenton? Brent or Bren for short.
    I agree that Harrison is a bit too popular now if you're looking for something unique xx

    Landon and Clayton are very popular in North America so Brenton is no more American sounding.

    I like them all apart from Reef and Mack. I think Landon is my fave but I say it with a Canadian accent so I don't hear the cockney thing lol Xx

    Tapatalking :-D Can't see tickers...

    I think Mack sounds too American, and if I say Landon it sounds like i'm taking the piss out of London, however I only like one name and thats Brenton xx

    Just throwing Grayson into the pot. We both really like it and the meaning makes it perfect "son of the grey haired!" OH always gets called a silver fox, hes been nearly white haired since his late twenties!

    If you like some of the American sounding names, what about Dexter?
