Five-Name Friday: Boy Name for Logan’s Brother

five name friday, boy name

You’ve stopped by the local public library to pick up an interloan book. Standing nearby is a friendly lady with two rambunctious boys checking out an impressive stack of children’s books with titles like How I Became a Pirate and Diary of a Worm.

The two of you strike up a conversation. At one point she mentions that she and her spouse are expecting baby boy #3, but they can’t think of a name for him. Here’s the gist of what they’re looking for:

We have two sons, Logan and Declan, and are now having a third son. Prefer names with Irish/Celtic history.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of ideas on the spot. But you can see she’s got her hands full, so you don’t want to overwhelm her with suggestions. Instead, you decide to stick to five names.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in the library?
  • Five names only! All names beyond the first five in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

We have two sons, Logan and Declan, and are now having a third son. Prefer names with Irish/Celtic history.

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
