Mila is a cute name, too. I've thought about it myself. It means "word" in Hebrew, which is my second language.
Our first was called "Lia" until I was about 8 months pg and then I said "you know what, this isn't right...it's close, but not right." And we found her name shortly thereafter and it was weird to switch, but it was the right move.
With all the babies that followed, though, we had a few names with a definate forrunner but just called baby "baby" until the baby was born and we could look at him and see if it was the right fit. I guess what I'm saying is that you might realize after you meet her that there is another name that is screaming out at you and you might need to change again! :) And that's okay, too.
My People believe that we are given Divine Inspiration at the naming of our children. That they come into the world with their own names and we are given a holy gift of insight at exactly the right moment to cause us to name them the correct name. I really like this teaching, mostly because I find that it is true! lol. There are so many people who say "but I would have NEVER chosen that for a name as my first choice" but whatever reason or circumstance came about, the name ends up being chosen and ends up being perfect for the baby. Your name will be perfect, too.
On that note, we've got our short lists for boys and girls (we don't know what we are having) and I'm trusting that we will know the right name when the time comes...G-d Willing. lol.:)
The March group looks way more active than the Feb group, btw.

Hard to get used to after all those months of calling her Ellis to myself, but I have a feeling Mila is going to be a better match for her personality. Gut instinct.
I love the due date crashing! Have you picked a name?
I look at this MDC board very rarely anymore since I'm usually on our FB board (feel free to join!), but I love hearing others' names, so I will check back here. :)
