hazelbranch, I LOVE Peregrine (sp?). I do know of a girl with that name, but never heard of the LotR character. I'm so out of touch! One of my professors named her sons John and Thor, which is sort of LotR-esque IMO. I always felt bad for John. I love Adalaide, too. Lots of nickname possibilities. And Peregrine Aviary made me laugh too.
Ravensong, I like Caspian, River, and Wulfie. Caspian makes me think of a friend I had named Ciprian. They called him Chip. Wulfie reminds me of one of the bad boys in A Christmas Story, but I don't remember which one, so I doubt anyone else would even think of that. And it would be lovely with your last name!
jennyvangy, i LOVE Edythe for a girl. My grandma is Ruth, and her sisters were Edith, Gladys, and Aileen. I love love love old lady names. Also Ruby, Vera, Eleanor... Wanted to suggest Sloane (girl) and Payton/Peyton (either) for your list, if they interest you. DD's middle name is Ruth, and this baby's middle name will be Jean (after my other grandma).
If this is a boy (and I don't really think it is, but who knows), his name will be Zane Archer, which was our boy name for DD. DH loves it, so I'm letting him have it without any fight. I think it will give me leverage on the circ "discussion."
Our "long" girl list:
Beryl (too weird for DH)
Sadie (once had a dog with this name, my parents would flip)
Marion (a family name, which I love, but the double n-thing...)
Natalie (too popular)
Lainey (maybe short for Elaine or Eleanor or something?)
But really its down to Mallory, Sydney, and Marion. U/s is on Tuesday. Need to do another post for the names on the first page!
