Ok so I still don't have a name like I did with Zack and Amahlia that I thought it the ONE but I think I have come to the realisation that I am not going to find a boys name that is THE ONE like I had for a girl and did with Zack and Mahli. So:
Alexei (Alex, Lex or Lexei as nn)
Emerson (Em or Emo as nn)
Lennox (Knox as nn)
Xavian (Xav as nn)

Of course I have my fav and that could change many times in the next 13 or so weeks left. Which would you choose? What do you think?

My thoughts, for what they are worth:

Alexei - my favourite from your list
Emerson - this really sounds like a girls name to me, sorry. I would also avoid Emo as a nn as I don't think teenagers need to be encouraged to be miserable and have stupid haircuts.
Lennox - while nms, I think this works well with your other kids' names
Xavian - sorry just sounds like a made up version of Xavier.

Good luck deciding, we had enough trouble choosing one boys name, let alone 3!!

I would choose Lennox. It goes with your other three, and Knox is a cute nn.

I don't really like any of the others. I like Emerson, but too many people have used it for girls so it now seems like a girls name instead of the boys name it originally was. I don't like emo as a nn at all.

- Alexei has been a fav since having Zack but its another A name which worries me.
- Emerson I really like but the fact it is used as a girls name so much really bugs me.
- Lennox is only a new contender BUT DH and I lived in Lennox Street for 6 or so years before we brought a house. James lived in same house his entire childhood and the family still own it his brother lives in it now. I just love Knox though which is why it is added but don't like it as a stand alone name. Where DH won't really have an opinion on what name we have I think he may about Lennox.
- Xavian- Where I do like the sound of it I am just not sure about it at all.

See how I none are "the one" but the amount of things I have looked at for names none are going to be I don't think. I tried giving myself time off looking but nothing changed.

Alexei: I like
Emerson:Is a last name to me so not really a fan
Lennox: not really my thing
Xavian: I like

I think Xavian is best if you don't want 2 kids with names starting with the same letter and it goes with them nicely.

I like Alexei the most of the names on your shortlist but I would hesitate to use it because of there being 3 A names vs 1 Z, but if it's the name you love don't let that stop you.

I actually think Lennox nn Knox is the best match for your sibset. It's not my style of name at all but I do like it for you.

Emerson is OK but I prefer the other two.

Xavian is not really for me. It just reminds me of Avian with an X in front. I know you have used Xavier as a middle but I don't think that stops you from using it again as a first. My other suggestion would be Xander.

I always know what you two are going to say. To tell the truth Alexei is my fav and a few days ago I went stuff it get over it Alexei it is. Then I found Knox yesterday and I like it but like a longer name and only can find Lennox or Maddox.

I vote Lennox - I really like it for you Lena! I love Knox; it has a positive association with me because of Knox Overstreet from Dead Poet's Society wub.gif .

Do it!!!!

I've said it before but if I saw Alexei or Emerson on a roll my first instinct would be to expect a girl to answer.

I like Alexei best. I don't mind Lennox but would spell the nn Nox (Latin for night, I think) because the K seems a bit strange to add in.
I don't really like Emerson and I *hate* Xavian

Alexei gets my vote

I'd hate to be called Xavian if my older brother had the middle name Xavier - somehow it would seem like I'd been given a name already used.

I like Alexei a lot but I also really like Lennox for you. I like Maddox too, is there a reason that's not on the short list? Do you like Hendrix?

I like Emerson too.

Xavian I really, really, really really dislike. I think your other names are a million times better.
