3 Name Choices

14 weeks away from meeting my little guy and still no name yet. What do you think of these choices?

Zachary
Lucas
Reid

*Edited to add that my last name begins with “B” and has 2 syllables.

I love all three. How many syllables in your last name? Which one seems to blend the best?

You can always wait until the baby is born and decide which one fits him best.

I love all three as well! I agree with Sam5 though, the number of syllables in your last name might help with a choice.

I like Lucas Reid _____. I can picture it also sounding nice from the span of a child to adulthood.

Congratulations! So happy for you!

These are all confident, strong names.

Fan of Zachary.

Why not dare to be different and have two middle names?

Zachary Lucas Reid

Really like the sound of that!

Reid is a less common name, if that matters to you...but I think it sounds better as a middle name to one of the other two. I like them all.

Does the meaning of one of the names particularly speak to you?

but Lucas is my favorite. Reid is my second favorite. However, Zachary is a good male name as well. Good luck and best wishes with your upcoming blessing.

I love all three. Do you like shortened versions of names? Zach for Zachary and Luke for Lucas? If so, do you prefer Zach or Luke? If not, maybe go with Reid since that won't be shortened.

I like Lucas Reid! Zachary is very popular around here, so I guess that's partly why. I do like the name, but I prefer names that you don't hear as often.

I've always loved 2 syllable first names with 1 syllable middle names.

Lucas Reid has a nice ring to it.

I like all of them. I'd choose Reid if you don't want him nicknamed Zack, Zach, Zac or Luke.

I love all three too, and I don't usually say that with names

I like Reid B- - - best and Lucas second best because of the length of the last name

My little boy's name is Zachary so I like that one obviously. I like Lucas too. Reid, if a family name, is a good option but otherwise, I am not a big fan.

I love all three. I really wanted to name my last son Zachary, but it was the name of my momís dog and didnít want him having the same name or be named after grandmaís dog.

Lucas is very, very popular right now. The music class I take my son to has 3 kids named Lucas, all under 3...out of 10 kids!

I do love the name, but it depends how common of a name you want him to have.
