Help us name the baby :)

We are pretty sure this baby is a boy.... but no guarantees right?... well of course, a girl name was easy for us to come to agreement on. LOL! So we would like your opinions on boy names. Please vote for your fav. and feel free to make any other suggestions, we are open to any ideas/thoughts!

Just FYI: the middle names Dean and Francis both have family "roots" behind them. One from his side and one from mine and we can't agree on which to use. Also, Brian and Matthew come from DH but he used Matthew as a 2nd middle name for his first (my stepson) and I have mixed feelings about using that again. Oh, and our last name is V.E. and both "names" end with an N... so in case that influences your thoughts.

I like Andrew and Daniel. I think 2 mn's is too much with a two-word last name.
Best wishes! Baby boys are wonderful

I have a friend who named her son Skylr, but I do think it sounds pretty feminine...even after knowing this little boy for years and years! Andy Dean doesn't have a nice ring to it to me, but I do like Dean as a middle name more than Francis (my grandma's name was Frances). Good luck on your decision!

Re: Help us name the baby :)

I went to school w/ the HOTTEST guy and just loved his name and how well he pulled off--Francis, so that narrowed it down to 2. I prefer original, yet not 'out there' names, so Paton it was!

(At Christmas dinner recently, my ILs friends--strong catholics--were all sitting around the table. Sitting side-by-side was Andrew, Michael, James, Jon, Patrick, John and Christopher. I couldn't help but think I was in the scene from the Last Supper, or a page out of the Bible. And in her high chair was my DD Ramie who added a little flavor to the mix.)
