Name Michelle’s Baby Contest!


We have good news and other news! Michelle has TWO baby names that she really likes, that’s the good news! The other news is that she still hasn’t decided, so we don’t really have a winner but we have a booby prize (well not a full-on booby prize but somewhere around the breast area)! One of the names she likes nobody said, Keenan, so there’s no winner on that one. The other name was posted at least once so if you offered the name Ryder before noon Monday, raise your hand AND email CustomerCareMama {at}

Think YOU have what it takes to name a baby? Well, do ya, mama? Let’s see if Michelle thinks you do! Our friend Michelle’s baby boy is due in November, and she’s having a rough time coming up with a name. So listen up and see the parameters and rules below: we’re throwing the baby-naming gauntlet at your feet! If Michelle chooses the name you post, we’ll announce the winner Monday afternoon and the winner can pick a favorite Earth Mama Bundle as a prize. If she doesn’t like any of the names, you all get sent to the Island of Terrible Baby Namers!

So, here are her parameters:
No names that start with B
Middle name: James
Has to sound good with Ella (his sister)

And the rules:
Add your name  suggestion in the comments below.
If Michelle chooses a name that lots of people have suggested, the first one who posted it wins.
Prize can be shipped to US addresses only.
It’s Michelle’s choice! If you get sent to the Island of Terrible Baby Namers it’s not our fault!
You can enter names until Noon, Monday, August 27. Winner (or losers) will be announced that afternoon!

    The Roman name Justus, which naturally means “just,” is a precursor of the modern word name Justice and also of Justin. But we like the original for both its meaning and its authenticity.”

Anuj has a similar meaning….I had posted thet Ryan and Ella both mean young….Anuj means “younger brother, and good in everything”…..and incase it is important to you Rayan is Irish and Anuj is Indian….when I say Anuj the “j” is silent.

  • rjackson14

    Jayden James

  • MamaS

    Mason or Timothy

  • Linda

    I have thought that Evan and Ella go together very nicely- in fact, I believe that I know someone whose children have those names. Ethan and Ian are both similar to Evan, as well.
    Other names that I like, don’t start w/ B, sound good w/ James, and may be fine with Ella, (very subjective!): Noah, Nathaniel, Gavin, Donovan, Conner, Judson, Theo, Hudson, Preston, Levi, Judah, Garrett, Jared, Cole, Josiah, Elijah.

  • Jennifer

    My boy is named Beniah James…but you said no Bs! So how about Noah?

  • brenda

    Boy names were hard for us too! We named our son Chase. “B” names were out because our last name starts with “M” no BM initials for us! For you I recommend, Hayden or Colton. Good luck!

  • Grayson James

    Boys names are hard! We have a Hudson, Rhys, and Elias. Our top runners up were Knox, Ezra, Miller, and Jude.

  • jagilroy

    Caleb James, Ethan James, Kylar/Kyler James

  • Amanda

    I did not really look through others, but I think Alexander james sounds nice! Alexander and Ella :)

  • Angie

    Ruben, Connor, Tyler, Ethan, Samuel, Hayden
    Good luck!!!!!

  • Oliver James

    Oliver James has a nice rhythm depending on the last name and it could be good with Ella as they both start with soft vowels. (Can you tell I have naming issues? lol It took forever to find a name that felt right and sounded good!)

    • Stephanie W.

      oops lol I saw the Name slot and wrote my suggestion again not realizing it should have been my name…I’m Stephanie

  • Kimberly Greenway

    Connor James

  • Ashley Degen

    Colton James or Joshua James (can call him JJ for a nickname)

  • jen

    This may be a duplicate I did not read all of the comments but I like Christopher James

  • Rebeca Mack

    I am due with my 5th (my second boy) in 2 weeks and we are STILL a little unsure about boys’ names. They’ve always been hard and we’ve had to pick one each time because we didn’t find out the gender with any of the girls (interesting that it ended up being a girl each time we DIDN’T find out!) Anyway, I know I’m duplicating someone, though I didn’t read all the names on the comments list.. Anthony is my first pick for your baby! I also like Isaac, Julien and Daniel. Good luck, mama!

  • Lesley Brooks Legakis

    I like Aristotle, Abraham (my kiddo’s name, which someone else already said), Ibrahim, Ian, Gideon, Nathan, William, Enzo, Dustin, Magnus, Cyrus, Victor, Vladimir, or Gregory. I was thinking Sam, but you don’t want to be yelling “Salmonella” (which is what “Sam and Ella” sounds like. :) I found that looking at the Social Security Administration website was especially helpful if you wanted to scope out the popularity of a certain name. Good luck! :)

  • Lauren Schuck Hanke

    Hi, my 3 sons are called Calan, pronounced (Kay lan), Moss, just as it is and sounds, and Ossian, pronounced (Aw shan). Calan was named after the last king of Auchterarder, Moss after all the wonderfull moss’ we have in Scotland, and Ossian means “Little Fawn” in Old Scots. I hope your keeping well and i think Ella sounds great with all 3 names. I’m sure you will pick the right one for your boy, no matter what. All the very best, Lisa

      Abraham James, too–Abe and Ella. Very classic as is my personal favorite I listed above Wesley James–Wes and Ella. Josiah and Ella, Charlie and Ella, Evan and Ella, Abram and Ella…. I think I like all of them and would have to have six sons all with the middle name James! ; ) What a cool story to tell your son when he grows up about how you got choices from a contest just for him and then chose his name.

    Our son’s name is Noam Thomas. We love how unique it is and receive a lot of compliments. It’s two syllables – like a combination of Noah and Liam. It also means “pleasant” which we liked a lot.

    However, if you were going for something unique but not unheard of, I suggest Abel. I love that it still is unique, but not completely unheard of, and strong sounding. I also think Abel and Ella sound fantastic together! Best wishes and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!

    • Danielle

      LOVE Soren!!

      • Elizabeth Butcher Hancock

        We love it, too! Baby #3 was hard to choose. What made it even more difficult was it had to be as unique and beautiful as Evangelene and Eamon. I think that we did him proud!

  • jennifer

    My son’s name is Talon. (and my girls are elliana -ellie for short- and emelia)

    Ethan James,

  • Sarah Baker

    Isaiah James

  • Katherine

    Ethan James

  • Jessica Shaham

    I have three boys. Naming kids can be so hard! I think a 2-syllable name with the same rhythm as Ella would work well. How about Simon or Ryan. Ryan James. Ella and Ryan. Simon James. Ella and Simon.

  • smartensen

    Ethan, Dylan, Rowan. I love Elliott but it is probably too similar to Ella. Good luck and all the best – boys are wonderful :)

  • Dawnn Thornton

    I say Huntley James. I think it has a good ring to it, and goes with Ella as well. I definitely is a different name! My son is Huntley Dail.

    Good luck picking a name, there are some great ones!

    I am pregnant with number 3 with a little girl, and husband and I have a deal when it comes to baby names…if it is a girl, then I pick first name, and he picks middle name, and if its a boy he picks first name and I pick middle, however with bundle number 3 on the way due December 23rd we had a hard time picking a middle name, so we ended up going with Payten Rae as a first name and Noelle for her middle name since she will be a Christmas baby.

    So we have a 8 year old daughter named Kaydence Grace, a 3 year old son named Huntley Dail, and our bundle on the way Payten Rae Noelle.

    Hope I helped!

    I understand how hard it is to name a second child, especially a boy! My OBGYN named our son while she was prepping me for a c-section. We had Taylor (family name) for a middle name. Our daughter is Ava LeeAnn. So she named our son Eli. Ava and Eli. For you I like the name:

    I named my son’s McKinley and Elliot. I think those are wonderful names. My name is Eden, which is listed as a boys name (I’ve heard of more men named Eden than women, too…) If I have another boy, I’m really thinking Oliver or Francis. Those are the names I suggest!

    Fitzwilliam James. You could go with all sorts of nicknames (will, bill, fitz), and it sounds very classic like Ella.

  • Katie


  • Tiffany

    Nash. Simple, strong, goes with James and Ella and it looks like it would fit Michelle’s personality.

  • Paz

    Rafael (or Raphael), if my baby girl Esperanza (Hope in spanish, since I’m from Argentina) was a boy that was going to be her name. I love it! it’s very manly and sweet! And the reason I liked it the most is that it is one of the angels from my favorite book of the old testament (bible), who never gave up on Tobias

      My son is Chase river . Love it.

  • Deidre

    My son’s name is Ezra. His younger sister is Eliana (aka Ellie), so we have Ez and Ellie. :) I liked Ezra because it was a Biblical name, which I was looking for, but not overdone (aka Josh-no offense, it’s my husband’s name, but we have a very common last name, so I wanted it to be unique) and also not too ‘out there,’ like Jehoshaphat (no offense to anyone with this name, just not my style). 😉

    • Jennifer Herford

      I really like this one. We have an Ezra also.

      • Jess T

        Oh wow. My little boy is Ezra too. Seems it’s becoming very popular.

    I think Gordon James would be nice, and Gord or Gordie and Ella work. :) (Gordon was going to be my sister’s name – until he was a she!)

  • Ellisa

    I like “Oliver James” – I have an Ella Sophia and a Maxwell Jacob Harris! I love Haris too, but not sure about a Harris James? Maybe! Good luck!!

    If I were having a boy, it would be Owen. It’s a lovely name, Owen James is nice, and Ella and Owen sounds cute. You have the added bonus of them both having four letter names. And if you’ve ever read A Prayer for Owen Meaney, you know why I love this name. Good luck!

  • Kelly

    Our first son’s name is Michael Andrew after my husband. when it came time for our 2nd child we were so ready for the girl names but could not come up with boy names. As fate would have it our 2nd child was also a boy (thankfully I opted to find out early) and we were down to the middle name Alexander and then Caleb, Matthew, Daniel and Jacob (my maiden name) for the first name. We didn’t have an official name until the day I was going in for an emergency c-section and as I was in the room being prepped I told my husband “He needs a damn name before he’s born so I can talk him through the birth” (seriously I was so panicked that he’d be born without a name that I freaked) And so, Daniel Alexander won out over all. Hope one of our names tickles your fancy and you’re not stuck in labor still guessing. But if you are, it will be because you will need to see his sweet face to know for sure. And then in an instant you will know. Good luck!!!!

  • Heather

    Have you thought of using your maiden name (or a variation of it) for your sons first name?
    Or perhaps an acronym? That is how we got my 3rd childs middle name…we didn’t find out the sex of the baby, but knew we were having Rae or Raymond after my grandfather and James would have been the middle name if she were a boy, but she was a girl and I was playing around with the first letters of the female members of my families names and we got Shale….S=after my SIL, H=after me, A=after my oldest daughter, and E=after my niece….her name is Raevin Shale :)

    • Heather

      L=after my mom…lol…forgot to add that one…oops!

  • Alyssa M.

    William James. I love the name William, or Will. And it’s very classic and strong, just like Ella.

  • Robin

    We wanted Declan Grant, but we had a girl! Lol. Declan James?

    My boys are Spencer (his middle name is James) and Lincoln and their older sister is Isabella (Bella) so I think either go pretty well with Ella. :)

    Our last name is James and my kiddos are Tyler, Ellie and Canon. I’d be happy to share my favorite names!

  • Robin Griesen

    Cole James (my son’s name and he gets compliments constantly)

    2nd choice is Jett James (what my daughter would have been named)

    Good luck Michelle

  • KtCarter

    Henley! My second son is Reid Henley but Reid James is harder to say than Henley James. for us, Henley stood for my grandfathers Henry and Leon. My other son is Landon …that would work too!! 😉

    Nathanial was one of my favorites for #1 (but we had a girl), but some other ones I like are Donovon, Declan, Cody, Cal, and Silas. Good luck! (P.S. I didn’t read through all the other ones, so I don’t know whether or not these are repeats!)

    • Jenny

      oops, should be Nathaniel, not Nathanial :)

  • Mindy May Farmer

    I have an Ella with younger brothers named Ezra and Kai. I also considered Ira for our youngest. Boys names are hard! I also like Zander or Xander and Zane. Jack is my favorite classic name.

  • Rachel

    My son’s name is Jakob Eli. We liked a classic, old fashion name (yes, I know it’s now the most popular name!) and we spelled it with a “K” for our German heritage. Eli was my grandfather’s name. I was very close to him and said if I ever had a boy, his middle name would be after him.

  • Lara

    Haven’t read through them all of course, but I see a lot of unique names! Are you looking for more traditional?
    How about Nathaniel?

  • Lindsay Ostrand

    My son’s name is Linden James Ostrand. For my next son I’m having trouble deciding between Angel, Tannon, Nicholas, Riven, Beckett, Valon, Nathanial and Hurley. I think they all sound good with James but I already have a son with that middle name lol

  • Doni

    Greyson James

  • Monique

    Dalton James

  • Lynnette G.

    Maximus. My middle boy is named that and he gets the most compliments out of all my boys! Especially from men/dads. Good luck! I have 3 boys and the last one didn’t get named till about a week before he was born because it was so hard to decide on a name.

  • Kendra

    Leland James, Leslie James. Wesley james

  • Jenny Harbert

    I like Elliot James, but I don’t know if that is too close to Ella.

  • Monique

    Theodore James, Theodore means gift from God. It was Dr. Suess’ first name and Theodore Roosevelt is a great namesake! We have a Theodore, but is called Teddy, or Teddy Bear.

  • Monique

    No idea what your husband’s name is but Thompson is a great name and means son of Tom, though it could be given to any boy!

  • Megan A.

    Tito James

  • Jenny Harbert

    Oh, one more, Oliver James! That’s not too bad. No offense, but I can see why you haven’t picked some of these other names. They are HORRENDOUS.

  • Somer

    Merrick James
    Elliot James
    Garrett James

  • Colleen

    My suggestion would be Caius James. I also thought Séamus would sound nice with Ella, but it would duplicate the middle name.

  • Ashley Mooney

    Kyler James

  • Monique

    Spencer is a cute name!

  • Brandy Garner-Benyo

    Aleph James. That would have been the name I had picked out if we’d had a son.

  • Andie

    Landry james
    Preston James

  • Erin Jensen

    Wallis (Wallace) James

  • Aubre

    What about Eli James? Scott James? Or Larsen James?

  • Heather

    Eric, Caleb, Chris, Miles, Robert, Connor, or Trevor.

  • Carey

    Charlie or Maverick

  • Cynthia

    I really liked the name Egan b/c I thought it was unique but my DF would go for it. Ella and Egan sounds cute and Egan James could also be EJ as a nickname. Honestly, without your last name I wouldn’t know where to start. My friend’s twins are Ella and Jack, but I’m no so sure anyone would want John/Jack James…..We ended up with an Ethan and another mama on a birth board had an Ethan James. I’ll think some more on this…. :)

  • Josha

    Ash and Ella!

    • Josha

      guess it could be Asher James since two syllables sound better…

  • Misty

    Charles, nickname Charlie. Charlie and Ella! Sounds cute together. There’s also Rowan…Trinity…Ethan…Jacob…Aiden…Finn…Noah

  • Stephanie Tannenbaum-Weiss

    Here are some from our Boy’s List
    But if you still don’t find one Zippy works for a stand in, lol we called our son Ziggy Squiggles until we finally named him, Archer Tiberius, in the delivery room after he was born :)

    I’m checking back and my comment disappeared! Re-posting in short version

    DEMETRIUS: Greek male name means Lover of The Earth (many combos of spelling)

    I’m going to go with: TERRAN: Irish unisex name means Earth.

  • Julie V

    We named our son Eric, after my husband’s late father. Eric means ruler, and he is definitely our little ruler! Also, if/when we have a girl, we chose the name Ellie – I think Eric would blend just as nicely with Ella! (and sounds good with James, too!)

  • Keri Robinson

    Nathaniel. It gives you lots of nickname choices.

    My parents are Edward and Eleanor. So I think Edward sounds great with Ella :) And…my father’s full name is Edward James!

  • Jennifer Abramshe

    Nikolas James, that is my second sons name. Ella and Nikolas sound good together too 😀

  • Melissa


  • Erica

    My picks if your looking for names that are not over done, but not crazy unusual: Abel James – Ella and Abel sound sweet together (I love that they both have only 4 letters)
    Alaric James – Ella and Alaric is alliteration at its naming best
    Ephraim James – Ella and Ephraim might be a good name for a design firm later
    Eden James – Ella and Eden is cute, maybe a hair girly…
    Elliot James – Ella and Elliot is more storybook style alliteration
    Harvey James – Ella and Harvey sounds very classic, possibly oldmanish (but I like it… and we all know how much my opinion counts here)
    Isaac James – Ella and Isaac has a great “Get in here, now!’ quality to it
    Jacob James – Ella and Jacob sounds very classic and easy together
    Levi James – Ella and Levi is cute, but maybe hard to say when calling them together
    Oliver James – Ella and Oliver sounds great together too
    Good luck naming your little one! And lots of good vibes your way for the labor process.

  • Dave and Liz Allen

    Oliver or August (perhaps Augustine as a full name for August).

  • Lucy

    My 4 yr old niece suggests.. Samual. She’s giggling away with ‘Sam and Ella’ – say it 10 times fast and you’ll get it. Where do they come up with this stuff!
    The older one is suggesting Alexandre James (sounds good with Alex and Ella) or Byron and Ella

    Since I am having a girl and can’t use my boy names, my favorites are:
    Hayden James
    Elliott James
    Looks like Oscar and Oliver have been mentioned already
    My son is Ashton Alden – family names and they aren’t too popular which is great
    I have a friend with an Ella and a brother Ryder
    Also, I see Reese was mentioned.. my dad is Reiss if you want a different spelling

    Now.. who can help me name my baby girl!!??

  • Diana Chylinski Hightower

    Don’t see my comment but I think Hammish James. And Cash James sound great!

    I like Ian James (Ian and Ella sound so cute together!) and Atticus James (my To Kill A Mockingbird Tribute) My husband suggested Nathan James.

  • Kate Brockmeyer

    Tucker James … you’d have Tucker and Ella! They are similar type names!

  • Kimberly Falsafi

    Five years ago I had a boy and named him Thurston. I fall more in love with him and the name every day. I get the occasional Gilligan’s Island comment but most people comment that it sounds sophisticated and unique.
