A reader named Julia is trying to come up with a name for her second son:
My first is a boy named Gabriel. We chose that name because we wanted a “less common” name, but one that was still considered “normal.” Now we are having a really difficult time figuring out another boy name with these same qualities. A few friends suggested Nathan, but that’s out because of a close cousin with the same name. Your ideas would be greatly appreciated!
I think Nathan was a great suggestion — too bad it’s out of the running. Here are some more names that might work:
Theo / Theodore
Can you think of other boy names that sound good next to Gabriel?
