    Wanting some unbiased opinion on shortlist!

    Hi all,



    Got a few name combos on the shortlist, some of them are based on hubby's father/grandfather (at his insistance and my dismay). I won't taint the poll by saying which I love and which I realllly don't, just curious to see what other's think!

    I voted Archer as I LOVE the name Archer... but not sure it goes with William? With the middle names you've got, I think Archer Laing flows better.

    I liked two - William Rient and Angus William. Voted for Angus.

    Really not a fan of Archer or Jackson as first names.

    Thanks all appreciate the input, I'm not 100% sold on all the combos but am desperately trying to compromise with hubby. Unfortunately he is pretty set on his choice and not even trying to meet me halfway on this

    I voted for Archer. I really wanted that for DD had she been a boy but DH wouldn't have a bar of it I like all your first name choices though. In order:
    Archer
    Max
    Jackson
    William
    Angus

    I think it's the meaning that make the name special. Both my kids middle names were chosen because they have special meaning to me.

    I voted for Angus William, I think as a combo it flows the best. I like all of your names, but some of them don't sound as good when put together. How do you pronounce Rient? This is the only one I wasn't sure of.

    Archer and Jackson sound really noughties. I think the last names as first names trend is pretty much dead now.

    Archer is a great name and I love this one!

    Not so sure about William as a second name though..... Does it have a nice flow onto the surname for the bubba?
