Be honest - PLEASE!!!!!

After a VERY long 2 months, we have our final names narrowed down to two and would love to get some honest feedback. We selected the first name and the birthparents selected the middle name. The choices are:

Davis Andrew Neel
Colby Andrew Neel

Please tell me what you think? I don't want either name to be shortened - Dave nor Cole so that will be an issue with either name.

Thanks
Debbie

i love davis. colby is cute now, but i don't know how much respect colby would get in the business world? just a thought! good luck. naming is hard. i don't share my son's real name on line, but if you want me to pm it to you i will. it is not very common (yet??)

Isn't your other son Conley? As a victim of Lisa / Leslie siblings- no one can keep us straight- I say Davis.

Initials

While I like Colby (it's the name of a very good college for one thing) I agree that since your other son is named Conley -- Davis would be less confusing. Also Coby's initials would be CAN which is a euphemism for buttox, whereas Davis's initials would be DAN which isn't bad.

I like Davis, too. Colby just reminds me of Survivor...then Schick Quatro razors!! LOL

But I'll bet that kids in school will definately shorten the name...Davey is more of a kid name than Davis... probably stuff like that parents have no control over! LOL

I'm with everyone else...Davis Andrew. Although, as one poster said, you probably have no control over it being shortened, or even possibly with him going with his middle name later in life. That's just one of those things, but he can always be Davis to you, and will probably keep it that way when he's an adult. : )
