    Out of your list I like Hayden best, though that was before I saw you DD's name is A shlyn. I think they might be too similar sounding. In that case, I like Jack.
    In order,

    Hayden
    Jack
    Jordan
    Gregory

    Love Hayden and Jack, but voted for Hayden as Jack is so popular and I always lean toward the less common names

    I went with Hayden.
    I actually like that name with your DD name. I called them out together a few times and I liked it.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted so far and given me your reasons.

    Here are some more thoughts I have on each name:

    Jack- I like it but worried it is too common now?? I'm not a fan of names that are used a lot (hence DD's name). In saying that though, I have always loved the name Matthew (I am not sure it is as popular now as what it used to be) but Dh doesnt like it.

    Hayden- I like it on a little boy and can see it as a teenage boy's name but not sure I can see it as an adult's name IYKWIM. Mummy&Daddy2be - I would love to know why your DF doesnt like his name as this is what I would worry about as he grows up. I still like the name though.

    Jordan- I like that it is not common but again not sure I can see it on an adult. It is probably my least favourite on the list.

    Gregory- I think it is cute as a little kids name and could then be shortened to Greg when he is older. Not sure if it is too old school or not?

    Arrhhhh this is so hard. I really am not sure if we are any closer.

    If anyone has other suggestions to throw at me, feel free.

    I have an Oscar. Only one in his school. Not too over the top. Suited the baby, now the boy, then the teenager,the grown man and the old man. That is my train of thought when picking names.

    I also have a Benjamin. Not too many of those around either, again fitted in with my theory.

    I think it's always worth going in with a couple of names and usually when you first look at your baby, you just know

    I voted Jack, but admittedly my vote was influenced by the fact I've taught kids with all of these names and, as a result, I could only pick Jack - the other ones leave me with some not-so-good memories.
