Smile Name Poll

This is our first team green baby and we are stuck for a boy name. Yes, I know it's early but I'm a planner and I'm amazed it's taken us this long. Our DD was named way before she was even thought of ha. Anyway, our girl name is Finley Brook.
Here are the boy contenders:
Finley (yes, same as the girl name)
Kellan
Talon (pronounced like the talon of a bird)

The middle name will be Joel after DH's twin brother and our last name starts with a B and ends in -son.

Re: Name Poll

I like Finley the best. Talon is too trendy to me... there are three boys at DS1's old preschool named Talon. They're all in the same class (under one year), and I feel bad because they have to go by Talon *insert last initial here*.

I think Kellan is nice, too Finley just sounds more old-fashioned, and I love that!

I had no idea Talon was trendy, wow! It actually just came to me today when I saw someone with the last name Tallon and it made me think of a character off the old show Laguna Beach who had the name Talon. That's all I've ever heard of that name. Interesting!

Re: Name Poll

I like Finley also...you can go ahead and customize things with his/her first name since it'll be the same

Re: Name Poll

the only one I don't like is talon, but I voted Finley because I like that one best. I have a Phineas so I might be a little biased

Re: Name Poll

I prefer Kellan but I don't think Joel flows for a middle name with any of them. I see the middle name has meaning so I'd keep looking for a first name that flowed better with it.

I voted for Finley. I like Kellan, too...but not so much Talon. I think Finley is super cute, and I like Finn as a nickname.
