Need a Name!!! - Latonia,KY
I am not having any luck picking a name for my little boy. I am almost 32 weeks (due Oct 29th) and cant come up with anything. I want a name that is unique/different, but not too off-the-wall. I would like his middle name to be Ivan (after my grandfather) and his sisters name is Cheyenne. Any help would be great!!!!

So What Happened?™
Well I finally picked a name....Denali Ivan. It is native american and means "the great one". Plus i figured with his sister having a native american name why not stick with the same trend?! Thanks for all the suggestions and advice.

I like the idea about watching film credits. I did that. I saw an old movie and told my husband we were naming the kid AXLEROD if he didn't agree to a good boys name. It was on the film credits and sounded funny to me. We choose Brody.
I like Sam with Cheyenne, they go together well. Wesley and Wyatt are more unique though.

I know it is very hard picking baby names. My son in now 4 1/2 months old, but when I was pregnant with him my husband and I could not agree on anything that we liked. We ended up each picking the name that we liked the best and had them written down and did not end up naming him until after he was born. We also did the same thing with my first son. I know it may sound strange, but I have a preference on certain letters that I like for first names. Basically I just wrote down the letters that I liked best and then went through name books to see what I could find. My son's names are Kaden Edward (Edward is my husband's middle name) and Kellen Charles (Charles was my father's name). I hope I was able to help a little and good luck on picking that name!!

I have a boy named Justin Andrew. What about Justin Ivan?
When I was pregnant with my daughters, we liked lots of names, but couldn't agree on anything but Shane Daniel.
Here are some more suggestions, that go well with the middle name "Ivan":
Christian or Christopher (which goes really well with Cheyenne)
I know whatever you pick will be perfect!

is there any names that are of the same origin as cheyenne's? like names that come from other states/indians?
just a few of my favorites are caden, jamison. i have heard dakota used as a boy's name. i have also heard of bronson, but can't say i particularly care for it.
try looking up different cities of the states and see if anything hits you. good luck! and let me know if ya want! i'd love to hear what u decide on!
best wishes with your new baby!

I like different names as well, mine is C., sounds like Teresa, but with the Ch sound. I like kids names that rhyme; my boys are Dalton and Preston. I didn't hear too many Preston's until I named him that, of course. I really like the name Cheyenne, different but not too off the wall, like you said!!!
I looked up babynamesworld.com and just browsed for a minute and I found Lucas and Drew, both of those sound unique with Ivan..There are numerous resources with millions of names on the web.
GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!! and Congrats on baby #2!!!!!!!!11

Have you tired the irish, or native american baby names list, they are online. Also Ivan is german so you could look under german baby names. Or also look back in your family tree you might find another name.
Let me know how it goes

That is a tough one. I named my son Caden just because it is different. My husband at the time wanted to name him Suede--like leather. I told him heck no. My son's middle name is Zane. I think that is a neat interesting name for a boy. But I may just be prejudice! I also like the name Liberty.....have you tried the baby name book? I hope I have helped or at least have made you scratch your head....
