Jenni, I love those names! All four of them, but Quinn and Zane especially. They seem unique, yet not outlandish, and kind of stylish.
We've struggled with names. Right now I can't fall in love with ANY names and it's frustrating. We've both vetoed all but one of each others' names. I have "Joanna" for a girl and "Gideon" for a boy. He has "Lydia" for a girl and "Linus" for a boy. We are each okay with the other two names, so we're good. Now it's a matter of picking one AND choosing middle names. For a boy, I think he is going to get DH's name: "James". I love that name anyway. But we've gone round and round with girls names!
I THINK we're leaning towards "Gideon James" for a boy. But "Lydia" and "Joanna" are complete toss ups for me. I've also toyed with middle names: "Abigail", "May/Mae" (a family name on both sides), "Pearl" (the birthstone of a June baby, huh? huh?), and others that come and go. I think it's funny that we really like three syllable first names and I feel like I SHOULD pick a one or two syllable middle name. "Abigail" kind of got stuck in there since it is one of my long time favorite names, but is WAY too popular for our comfort and surname (but would be fine as a middle name). Also, our first DD has the middle name "Joy", which I LOVE and I've played with the idea of using words like "Faith", "Grace", "Hope", etc. for more middle names, but don't want to get stuck in a rut if we had four girls and don't want to have to pick a name "Just because" even if I am not excited about it.
We are not asking friends or family. Names are TOP SECRET in our house, but I feel stumped. Does anyone have any input?
We have a Linus and it is really a super cute name "on". I'm so glad we chose it. Our Linus is 2 now and quite "Linus-y". LOL
Linus James is super sweet. For girls I love Lydia Mae. So pretty, and it seems to go well with Joy.
