What's In A Name?

Oh, just everything.

We are having the roughest time trying to find a middle name that we love for Hudson. Parker's name just came so easily for us, and it flows so well.
We have a few names in mind, but none that are "the one"... yet anyway. We love Hudson Oliver, but is Oliver a little dorky? We like Hudson Cash, but does that make him sound like a little badass? We like Hudson Asher, but does that even flow? We like Hudson King, but is King a weird name?
We also like Hudson Ryan (Ryan after Garrett's middle name), but then why would we name our second son after his dad and not our first?

UGH! Poor little guy is going to have this name his whole life, and I just want to make sure that it is the right name for him.

We love fun/funky names that aren't too popular, but nothing too crazy either.

Feel free to leave comments with suggestions. We really are liking 1 or 3 syllable middle names the most. I have a feeling we are just going to have to name him when he gets here (in about 10 weeks or less!! Holy moly).

Oh, and I found out in the best couple of weeks that my cousins Lindsay, Noelle, and Corrie are all pregnant! Even though Noelle and Corrie don't live close by, it's still neat to have cousins all around the same age. Yay for baby booms :)

Oh, and by the way, Ryan is fine to use for a second child. The second one actually needs something special to claim since he's not "the first born". :)

I agree that the second one needs something special. Lilee has her daddy's middle name also. Hudson Ryan is a great name! Can you believe the baby boom?

I like Ryan, I also like Reed and Rhys with Hudson. I LOVE oliver, and I don't think it's dorky at all. Its a classic name. I l;ike Asher too. Heres some more ideas for you:

Jenn, we love Emerson, but don't really want an "E" name because then his initials would be HEL! lol.

I like these suggestions, keep them coming! :)

I like Hudson Oliver the best! I have a friend who just named her baby Tucker Hudson and I think Hudson Tucker is cute too! I understand your dilemma though... I'm really hoping we have a girl because I have no idea what we would name another boy!

I love Hudson Oliver and don't think that it is dorky at all. I also think Hudson Ryan is great and just b/c he is son #2 doesn't mean he can't have daddy's name.

I LOVE Hudson Cash. So cute. I can't believe he's going to be here so soon! And I'm pretty sure I'm coming out in August, a close friend of mine from childhood is getting married, so I'm going to make a trip out of it! And I agree about the baby boom, I have two friends that are pregnant, two that just had babies within the past two weeks, and one of my ex's is having a baby in October! crazy!
