My cousin is debating between these names. Newton is a name in her family, though she is a bit partial to Dexter. The last name is Richter.
Dex is my suggestion between the two. I wouldn't want to be called Newt. Especially as a kid in school.
Too many ters. DexTER RichTER? Doesn't sound right to me.
My thoughts too
Probably "Dex" of the choices given. He may get teased a bit by both.
I hope she has a girl. Boys with these names will be teased mercilessly. With Dexter, at least he might be called Dex. Ray or Trey might be better middle names with her -ay sound.
My first choice would be Blue.
The girl names are cute. The boy names aren't as cute.
How have you been Bama? I haven't seen you around much?
I'm okay, EB. I've just been busy & haven't had much time to comment lately. Thanks for checking on me. Are you doing okay?
Yes, I'm hanging in there too :-)
I know quite a few people whose last name is newton. Even they always had people calling them fig newton in school. So I would go with Dexter. Plus, then he can go by Dexter or Dex, both of which I like. The only real nickname for Newton is Newt.
What kinda names r those?
Dexter Richter is non-melodic. If they name him Newton, hopefully his nickname will be NJ and not Fig.
I dislike Dexter too, especially with Richter. Newton isn't much better, just has the advantage of being a family name. She likes uncommon names. Please tell me suggestions so I can talk her out of Dexter!
Dexter is now a great name for a future ethical (insofar as that's possible) serial killer.
DJ is a pretty cool nickname so nobody would ever need to know the name was Dexter. Both of these currently have negative connotations, but I just can't imagine the horror of being called "Newt".
Oh good point on newt!
Yeah good point!
I rather like Newt, even though I don't like the Gingrich one.
What is wrong with your cousin. Horrible choices for girls and boys names but the boys choices are especially awful.
With Dexter and the last name he probably be teased and awful lot
Dexter Richter doesn't sound so good.
Dexter makes me think of the TV show serial killer.
My dog's name is Dexter if that influences your decision.
