Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Are there any good alternatives to Andrew?

5 answers
My husband's name is Andrew and it is a tradition in his family to name the first son after the father. I personally love the idea of having a little Andrew. His parents are also thrilled about the whole idea however Andrew Hates it. He says that there are way too many Andrews in the world and to add another one to the family would just confuse him and his son too, especially when I call one of them. So I'm looking for any alternatives even a good name with the letter A sounds good for example my name is Natalie and my daughter's name is Nadia. So please anybody help?
