We both like Evelyn
(e-vy, not Ee-vy, again).... and I just remembered another I've always liked - Emmerson
! (could call her Emma if I really wanted to - but not sure that I would)....Cecelia and call her Cece....see that's the problem with Charlotte- I DON'T like Charlie for her, or Char....and I like to have shortenings, yk? Oh, and Eleanor (and call her Norah)
HEy - btw, 2boyzmama - how about Cullen? I have two girlfriends who do the 'celtic' names....one more 'out there' than the other....there is: Kady, Tierney, Christian, and Cullen from one friend - and Kiernan, Lochlan, and Sorcha from the other....I REALLY like Cullen!!!
For boys we're totally stuck. WE can't seem to agree. Robert? Jack? Max? eh? Really lost.
So -there's where we are. WE like classic names. In fact, we went and printed out the top 100 names from the SS index from 1900 to 1910 - it's just easier to find names we like that way
HOLY COW!!! Another Lochlan? One of my older brothers is named Lochlan!!! AND, one is named Keir!!! What are the chances???? Seriously, they're the only ones with those names I've ever met.
Anyway, Cullen is a great name, but our last name is Block, and I already was hesitant with Connor Block, because of the hard "C" start and end. It just felt too abrupt to me. But I didn't dislike it enough to nix it, and my husband really liked it. So hence Connor's name
And for some reason I think of culinary when I hear Cullen!
I think we've agreed on Gavin for a boy, I had been tossing it around in my mind for a while, finally mentioned it to hubby who liked it, and then I looked up the meaning and it means "white hawk", Connor means "wolf lover", so I like that the name meanings are somewhat linked, you know?
And we're still going with Evelyn for a girl.
