Wow! Quinn is a future daughter's name - which we're not even sure we're having, but it's so uncommon. My last pregnancy was supposed to be Quinn Amelia. I thought Corbin and Quinn would be adorable together. But I have a thing about "resume" names = they go in for the interview and the interviewer is surprised to see my *daughter* standing there.

Funny story: We weren't positive DD was going to be a girl so we had the name Ethan picked out too. If you watch my birth vid, we're constantly saying "Victoria or Ethan". She came out a Victoria and we had our Ethan 16 months later.

Funny how things work out!

Oh, and I love your son's name.

Mine have pretty common names:

Lukas Raul (Raul is my DH's middle name)
Marcus Alexander

When Marcus was born, I wanted to name him Xander but DH thought that sounded like a "super hero" name (what's wrong with that???). So, we decided on Victor Paul. When he was born, DH said, "he's not a Victor, he's a Marcus), so Marcus he became. I never wanted rhyming names for my children, but we've gotten used to it. I now call him Marky anyway.

Future daughter name: Elena Nicole.

aw, thank you! his name was so hard to come up with as we'd "known" it was "chloe" for months! LOL! even my poor dd kept wondering where chloe was. poor kid thought her baby sister had vanished. and while she was not happy AT ALL at the prospect of a little brother, she did yell at the nurse when they pricked his heel (or whatever it is they do that i've forgotten about!) and he started crying. in her little 2 year old voice she yelled, "hey! don't you hurt my brother!". melted my heart right there.....and the nurse was highly amused as she was really mad! had her hands on her hips and stood on her chair and everything like she meant business!

his birth was a shocker though. as soon as he came out one of the the nurses said, "wait! we have a penis!" and the room got silent for a second and then erupted in applause and i started crying and dh started crying. it was awesome......one of each.

Evelynn Rose

We chose Evelyn for the meaning (little bird), added the extra N because Lynn is a family name, and Rose for her paternal grandmother.

I wanted to jump in. We haven't found out what we are having yet so it will either be:
Penelope Barbara-Joy or Lucas Joshua

Barbara after my late MIL
Joy after my Aunt
Joshua after my BIL

Spencer Philip: We had 2 boy names and 2 girl names picked out as our "finalist", and when he was born, he looked more like a Spencer than a Kyle. (Actually, I thought he looked more like a Kyle, but I'm really glad we went with Spencer.) Philip is DH's name.

Colin Matthew: Again, we had 4 finalists, but we had a "bet" going on this time. IF baby #2 was a boy (there was no way - I was SURE I was carrying a girl) and IF I went almost a week overdue and this baby was born on our friend's son's birthday, THEN we would choose Colin (our friend's son's name) over Benjamin. Lo and behold, six days after my EDD, my husband proclaimed, "It's a boy. It's a BOY???" And everyone in the room laughed. Matthew is for my deceased brother. Thankfully, Colin really fits him.

We have no idea what we'll name any more boys. As for girls, in the past we have chosed Hannah, Charlotte, Cecelia, and Victoria as our "finalists". Her middle name will be Ellen - it's a family name that goes back 5 or 6 generations. I would LOVE to use Ellen as first name, but our last name starts with a Z, and I will NOT give any of my children the initials EZ. Just won't do it!

My cousin's name is Lori, short for Laurel (emphasis on the e.. so it's "laur-EL").

James Edward- 5 (Which takes us to RATE)
Jocelyn Keziah- 3
Jasmine Eliza- 1
My family has several members who've done "themes" with their kids' names. One brother has five boys with the same middle name (Keith); one brother has three kids who all have the same initials (A.D.); one sister has two boys with "T" names and another has two girls with "K" names.

Heheh... Mara Jade was a character in one of the Star Wars books. Luke Skywalker loves her.

My kids are:
Stephanie Nicole - First name after a family friend from my childhood, middle name after my best friend from high school.

Alexander Lee - I have always loved Alexander, and Lee was his father's middle name.

Kimberly Grace - Again, Kimberly was just a name I love and Grace was because I was worried about losing the pregnancy and thought it a miracle that she was even born.

Thomas Kieran - Thomas, his father picked because it translates to Spanish, and Kieran I picked because of his Irish heritage.

Gabriella Diane - Gabriella, again, translates to Spanish, and Diane was after actress Diane Lane. (It was almost Siobhan, after the Irish heritage, but my friend talked me out of that.)

Nathaniel Lucas - Nathaniel, so I could call him Nathan, after Firefly's star actor, Nathan Fillion, and Lucas after Star Wars' George Lucas. This one also has my maiden name as his last name, in my father's honor.

Our DD's name is Aislyn Cynthia. Aislyn since it was the only girl name DP and I could agree on and Cynthia after my mother.

Is she had been a he, his name would have been Malakai Alan. We love Kai for short and Alan since it is the name shared by DP's deceased brother and my deceased father

When considering names, I loved the names Brody for a boy and Athena for a girl but DP was not on board
