DS1 due in 4 weeks time and we have narrowed it down to 2 names:

Flynn Aaron or Reese Morgan

Please give me your honest opinions. I have been crazy about Flynn since day 1 but now find myself leaning towards the other choice. The only concern I have is that Morgan is genrally considered a girls name.

In case it matters, we already have a DD whose name is Lily.

Of those two I prefer Reese Morgan. Aaron Reese would be my favourite combination of all the names.

Rhys Morgan

i like Aaron Rhys - is there any reason for your spelling 'Reece' ?

Meant to say why
Both Reese and Morgan can sound female (though I think it's Reece as in witherspoon)
Morgan is actually a male welsh name so by using Rhys which is also male(and welsh) it makes it all sound male.
Ii didn't explain that very well but I hope you can understand what I mean

The original Welsh spelling of Rhys is much nicer, Reese is the female form is it not? There's also Reecesmile

I prefer Flynn, but not with Aaron, I feel it needs a longer mn in order to flow, for example Flynn Alexander.

Morgan is unisex I feel, too surnamey for me though!

I'd go with Flynn, it's lovelysmile

I like Flynn!

Both nice and not overused - Flynn is a refreshing alternative to Finn, and Rhys/Reese is nice too (don't know any, male or female).

I'd definitely go with Flynn! Don't like the other options, sorry.

Rhys or Rees, don't like it with an 'e'. Like Flynn too.

Prefer Flynn to Reese, but if you go with Reese I'd spell it properly.

Reese Morgan screams 'naughty' to me.
