We've added to our lists. :)
Our girls list: Juliet, Isla, Lorelei, Amelie, Willa and Rhiannon
Boys: Finnegan, Westley, Declan, Jude and Julian
What about Zander... since it seems like you're a Joss Whedon fan. ;)
I really like the name Inara too, but DH vetoed it.
We have a girl name and a boy name picked out but aren't sharing the info with anyone.
My former favourite girl name is my username, and I would have hyphened it as Sophie-Ann, followed by a middle name. But, Sophie has gotten too popular for me to use it, and I've moved on to other favourites - that was 5 years ago after all.
You caught that, did you ;)
I didn't tell DH where I picked up the name Inara because I'm sure he'd put up a bit of a fuss if I tried to name our daughter after a "companion". I figure the reference would be so obscure by the time she's old enough for school that it shouldn't be an issue.
When I was pregnant the first time I had a boy name picked out in the first few days after my BFP...lol...Christopher Alexander...and to our luck it was a boy. We had no clue what to name a girl!
This time around we have a girl name picked out......Chloe Alessandra, but no clue for a boy!!!! =)
We thought of a lot of E names when coming up with DS2's name (Errol). Here are some I liked:
DS2's initials are EW :(. Oh well! So are his dad's and he's been fine with it. My full initials are JAP which also isn't that nice.
We have our girl name completely picked out-- but she'll go by a nickname because the full name is a little out there. We still have to come up with a middle name, which will be a family name. The thing is, I don't want to take away all the family names because my sister might want to use some for her kids. Not that she couldn't use the same ones, but as a courtesy I'd like to save the couple female family names for her that I bet she'd like to use-- like Julia (our amazing grandma), Elizabeth (our wonderful great aunt-- also the middle name of my sister and our mom so somewhat of a tradition). So we might go with a name from DH's side.
As for a boy we have no idea! I think I'm focused on "S" this time around. Don't know what we'd do about the middle name either-- maybe DH's father's name. DS1 has his great-grandfather's name as a middle name (Andrew).
