We need something that will go with Duncan, Logan, Ian and Kyan and the middle name James.

It must end in AN and at least something we can pass off as Irish. Make something up if you want.

Here's the ones we've talked about.

( NOT AIDAN WAY TOO POPULAR)

Brennan ( though I think this one is prettier for a girl)
Seanan ( Shay nan)
Evan
Orlan
Nolan
Aran (aaron)
Morgan
Teanan ( Tay nan)
Tailan ( tay lan)

Ardan "are + dawn" -- From ardanach meaning "high aspiration." Ardan was one of the sons of Usna who helped Deirdre escape to Scotland so that she would not be forced to marry King Conchobhar MacNessa.
Cabhan "kav + an" Cavan, Kevan, Keevan In Irish cabhan means "grassy hill" or "hollow" and is the name of the Ulster county Cavan.
Colman From the same root as Colm, it means "little dove" and has developed into a seperate name from Colm and there are said to be 350 saints of the name. St. Colman of Kilmacduagh, lived as a recluse until his meeting with the king of Connacht. As the king was sitting down to dinner on an Easter Sunday the feast was miracously whipped from in front of his eyes and when he and his servants followed it they found Colman, weak after his Lenten fast, devouring the food.
Deaglan "deck + lan" Declan From dag "good" and lan "full" suggesting "full of goodness." St. Declan was the founder of a monastery at Ardmore in County Waterford and may have preached in Ireland before the arrival of St. Patrick. Many miracles are attributed to a rock on the beach at Ardmore known as St. Declan's Stone. According to legend, on a trip back from Wales one of his disciples, Runanus, forgot Declan's sacred bell. But a prayer from Declan and, miraculously, the stone carried the bell over the waves back to Waterford.
Desmond Meaning "one from Desmond," Desmond being an area of South Munster, one of the four provinces of Ireland. Popular diminutives are Des and Dessie.
Dillon Dylan From dealan "a flash of lightning" or it may come from an Irish word for "faithful, loyal." A common surname it is the Irish form of the Welsh name "Dylan." As Dylan it was the tenth most popular name for baby boys in Ireland in 2003.
Eamon, Eamonn "aim + an" Edmond
Edmund Is the Irish form of Old English ead "rich" + mund "guardian", and implies "guardian of the riches." In more recent times the name has been given to honor Eamon De Valera who was President of Ireland for 14 years, the maximum allowed, from 1959 to 1973.
Glendon, Glendan gleann "valley, glen" and dun "a settlement, fortress" implying "one from the settlement or fortress in the glen."
Iollan "ul + an" "one who worships a different god." Iollan was the son of the High King Fergus Mac Roth and a champion at the court of King Conchobhar Mac Nessa. When Deirdre and Naoisi eloped to Scotland Iollan went with his father to persuade them to return to Ireland, believing that Conchobhar really had forgiven them. When he returned with them and discovered that all Conchobhar really wanted was revenge he died defending them.
Kevin, Kevan Means "gentle child" or "well born." St. Kevin founded a great monastery at Glendalough in County Wicklow in the seventh century. Noted as a man who wasn't always comfortable in the company of other human beings, he was very much at home with the animals. One story tells that while Kevin was praying a blackbird came and nested in his hand. He remained at prayer, motionless, until the eggs had hatched. In another story, when he dropped his psalter in a lake an otter came by and retrieved it. The name is still very popular in Ireland.
Lochlan, Lochlann "lok + lun" The Vikings plundered Ireland in the 9th and 10th centuries and the native home of the Norwegian invaders was known as Lochlan "land of the lochs." But once they settled and intermarried with the Irish Lochlan became a popular name and was generally given to boys that had fair or red hair - a tribute to their Viking ancestors.
Lorcan "lor + can" Means "silent" or "fierce" and was probably used as a nickname for a "brave warrior." Sometimes equated with Laurence, Lorcan is a name in its own right. One Lorcan was the grandfather of Brian Boru, two kings of Leinster bore the name and St. Lorcan O'Tuathail, better known as St. Laurence O'Toole, was an influential bishop of Dublin and an important mediator between the Norman invaders and the Irish in the twelth century. The name is growing in popularity again in Ireland.
Odhran, Oran or Orin "o + ran" "o + rin" Odran (pron. "ode + ran") All variants of odhra meaning "dark haired." Seventeen saints have used the name and Odhran, abbot of Meath, was one of the 12 devotees who accompanied St. Columba to Iona. When he died soon after their arrival Columba saw Odhran's soul ascending to heaven following a battle between angels and devils. Another Odhran was the charioteer of St. Patrick.
Quinlan, Quilan, Quinlivan A surname, now an increasingly popular as a given name. From caoindealbhain meaning "gently-shaped, athletic."

Those are some great names! My favorites (and the ones that sound more like 'you' to me, Shona) are:
Tallan
Reagan
Keigan
I like Paydon too but it kinda sounds like Pagon (if that is how you spell it-lol)
Oh, and Weston was nice too.
Here are some more I thought of:
Shelton
Plankton Just had to throw that in there cuz it popped in my head. Can ya tell I watch too many cartoons?
Bayden
Canyon? Caden?
Jaden (ooh, I like that one and I think i made it up!LOL!)
I will keep my ears open while I am out shopping today!
And I hafta mention-I don't like the name Nolan too much. Reminds me of Nolan Ryan and then I think of old man.

Am I allowed to give some, since he's my nephew..

Gonna say right off, I don't think you should go with any that start with D, L, I, K for obvious resons.

Annan from the stream
Artan little bear
Beacan small, little one
Cargan little rock
Curran means hero (extra note, Aunt Ruth's married name)
Eoghan "o + in" Comes from an old Irish word and means "born of the yew tree."
Fintan "fair-haired" or could mean "white fire.
Galen calm
Phelan little wolf
Rogan red haired
Sheehan little peaceful one

I like them all, but really like Sheehan and then Beacan.
Course, you know me I'm gonna love him to bits no matter what you name him.

OOOOHHHHH Shona! I wanted to name Travis this name, but DH didn't like it. It fits your requirements!

DECLAN

I LOVE THAT NAME! It's not common, and it's Irish. It means "Man of prayer."
If you don't like it, that's okay. But I think it's great.
