need input on boy names

So we are having a terribly hard time coming up with boy names. We have a few picked out and I would like some input on one's y'all like or if you have another boys name you wouldn't mind sharing. The names are:
Calvin Taj
Dirk Ryan
Coby Dirk
Jordan (no middle name)
Again, I'm not in love with any of these so if you have any suggestions feel free to share. My feelings will not be hurt. :)

I feel you.  We too are having trouble. Hubby wants George after his dad. I cant imagine myself yelling "George get your finger out of your nose"  lol. As an adult it is a fine name but cant picture it on a baby or toddler.  So hard.  I like Coby best from your picks but have no suggestions as i too am at a loss!

Thank you! :) Coby has the lead for me as well. I'm thinking once the baby is born, if it's a boy at least I have a few different names to choose from but I don't love any of them. Lol that's why I'm also looking for suggestions just in case there is a name I love out there and just haven't thought if it yet.

Hey first of all good luck with your search. We r having a boy and it was difficult to decide as well.we finally agreed 2 days ago.I loved liam, connor, aiden and hubby loved oliver and Christian. Could not get my way as my husband said my choices r irish names n he is northern irish so they wouldn't work. I don't like oliver n my gf son is called Christian.After a long back n forth we decided we both like alexander but i thought it was a mouthfull for a first name. I wanted luke alexander cuz i also love luke.He said no way, but conceded to Lucas Alexander which we (including family) absolutely love.  Good luck again. Ps we have been trying to come up with names since we entertained the idea of children and that's a long time now. I thought we would never find one much less agree lol.

IrishJam we've been trying to come up with names since before we got pregnant too! We have a huge list of girls names and have had our first girls name picked out since before we got married a year and a half ago! Boys just seem to be more difficult. Half those names you mentioned I ran passed hubby and he vetoed them. His favorite is Dirk Ryan because his favorite basketball player's name is Dirk! Such a dork! :/

I really like Ellis for a boy,  that's what me and hubby were going to use for a boy.  But we found out we are having a girl. So we need to have a re-think.

Men do have the power to veto, even though we are the ones who struggle for various reasons for 9 months lol. We picked girl Names easily too, that was a breeze. But you are so right boy names are really hard to pick and agree on. I love dirk Nowitzki too or however u spell his last name from basketball :).  But not sure about using the name dirk.  But if hubby loves it the question is do u love it too? And love it enough to give ur husband his way. Lol its easy for some couples cuz one or both arent fussed, and with other couples they either release Control to the other spouse.  Strong willed coupled like myself will fight til we can agree. Lol good luck again.
