My last we didn't name until she was 3 hours old. I still have the hospital card that was in her crib that says "Baby Girl" and our last name LOL
I love your girl's names! I live that they are unique, but classical, and strong but girlie. I think girl's names are so hard to pick!

We have been tossing around the names James Derek and Sarah June for the last year and we have become attached to those names. I LOVE names like Iris, Edwin, Caroline, Benedict, Evelyn and Darcy but like I said, it feels like we have already decided. We even have a nickname if it is a boy that we have named James. I love baby names. It is one of my favorite things about being pregnant. We will be finding out the gender. Who else is planning on doing that? We are HORRIBLE with surprises! I am loving the website nameberry.com.
I love your kids' names, too! Very strong, but fresh sounding.

That said, the hubs is DEAD SET on naming a boy Tristan. He doesn't care about a girl name, I can name her, I can even do the boy middle name, but he is set on Tristan. Ummm.....pray for pink, pray for pink. Right now boy name is Tristan Guy. I'd really prefer to honor my dad by replicating his initials GMW instead of naming the poor kid Guy :) My boy names are Graham and Grant, and I love love love Ben.
Girls names, well, one of my best friends and college roomie died last year so I would somehow love to work her name in. So I have Whitney, Healy (which was also the dorm we lived in) and Smith. I had a dream in college we had a girl named Kate, so I'd like to somehow work that in. The baby is due on my gram's birthday, her name was Nellie, and hubs and I both love Ruby and Charlotte. So that leaves us with Ruby, Ruby-Kate, Charlotte Healy (Charlie), Nellie Mae, and a few others. No matter what, we won't be talked out of our name choice this time!!!
I hate that being talked out of names! I wanted to name my last little one a certain name in particular--but talked myself out of it. But I can consider it again with this little one! I love the name Tristan. Lance is another "knightly" name that I love, too.

I love love love Revere! And the girls names sound royal. <3

Our boys now have the names:
So we're looking for something that isn't terribly trendy and kind of unique, it has to go with the names of the kids we have already. Unfortunately the girl name we have wasn't very popular 9 years ago, but has boomed in popularity lately. We have the name picked out after my husband's grandmother.
I love the order of your guys' names! I hear you on the boys names getting tougher. With 3 boys I have a few names I still like, but they have to all go together, too. I like how yours are good as a set. I can see a Thad or a Thaddeus in there for some reason!
