    Default Boys names - opinions please

    Ok so we are having a boy and up until a couple of weeks ago had no idea of names. Now we have managed to come up with some. Middle name will be Peter and his surname will be Spanish (3 syllable). His sister has a 4 letter first name (but it's hyphenated so is actually longer than 4 letters but we usually only use the first part). Are you still with me....

    So we have ;-

    Coen Peter
    Ethan Peter (am worried Ethan is too commonly used these days)
    Elijah Peter
    Cooper Peter

    Haven't told anyone we know these and don't intend to but am interested to hear what people think. My mother threw a spanner in the works saying that because DD has a 4 letter name then DS needs to have that too

    I'm really not bothered about it being 4 letter (just my mother got me thinking) but it does have to be something short because of the long Spanish surname.

    I like Elijah the best, but I'm not sure if it goes with Peter. Probably out of the rest on your list...I would say Coen, but like PP, spelt Cohen
