Julia Veronica
Rachel Ellen
James Roy

I like simple, classic kinda names. They're all named after grandparents/great-grandparents/great-great grandparents.

Willa Marianna. Willa we just liked, and Marianna is my grandmother's name.

I'm another big Henry fan, but I think my brother has dibs on it since it's his first name (though not the name he goes by).

Eli Casimir

Eli and Eben (my DS1's name) have been "my" boy names for as long as I can remember. The middle name is after my grandma, Casimira, who passed away 2 years ago.

Katherine Bridget

I have ALWAYS wanted a Baby Katie. I LOVE that name, and I have LOVED everyone I've ever met with that name. It seriously has nothing to do with my name -I'm Kathleen -she's not named after me. I would have had just "Katie", but my husband thought she needed a "grown-up name" in case she decided to do something big and important

Bridget because I stumbled on it while trying to find an Irish middle name to go with Katie...it means "resolute strength". Katie is the survivor of a twin miscarriage, and Bridget fits her personality today perfectly. She has one fierce will, and tremendous physical strength (I'd kill to have this kid's muscle definition : )

Had she been a boy, she would have been "Eric Henry" - Eric for my husband's deceased brother (named "Ryckman", so, eRIC), and Henry for my grandpa.

First name: Alexander, Middle Name: Fote, and right now we call him Alexander - not sure if/when we'll cut it down to Alex...

We both loved the name Alexander, and Fote was my dad's name. He was battling cancer when DS was born, and passed away when DS was just 3 weeks old. I'm so glad that he lived long enough to know that he has a grandson who will carry on his name (Fote is a Greek name).

Ian Thomas Last Name

Ian was a compromise because DH only wanted Ethan and I was worried about having such a popular name (number 5 last year). Thomas is DH middle name and his father's first name.

If we ever have a girl...her name will be Ellison Marie.

If we have another boy...I really want Jake but Jacob is also an insanely popular name so I guess we'll have to see. I just have had a bunch of students named Jake and they were all such sweet guys.

This is so fun to read all the names!

My baby is James Isaac. James was my uncle who died as a young man, as well as the name of DH's godfather. Isaac is DH's name.

My older son is Thomas Ryan. Thomas is my dad's name and my grandfather's name. Ryan is DH's middle name, and what he goes by.

DD1 is Isabelle Grace, goes by Izzy. DD2 is Violet Jane. We chose Violet because her big sister wanted to name her "purple", we thought Violet was a better choice. Both girls have a grandmothers name for their middle name.

We probably would combine the names and have an Aidan Douglas. And, oddly enough, I joke about having another girl, but if we did, Siobhan is on our list of names, second to Isla (pronounced eye-la)

DS is Ezra Carl Benedict. He goes by Ezra, or Ez for short.

Ezra was just a name that we liked; classic and yet not too too popular.

Carl is my DP's grandfather's name, and Benedict is my grandfather's name. Both of them passed away recently, and we wanted to honour them.

PiePie, just curious - how did you happen to settle on giving your baby your last name? I wish that wasn't so uncommon, but it is... DH was fine (mostly.. he still sometimes brings it up) with the fact that I didn't change my last name when we married, but I think he would have flipped if I wanted our baby to have my last name too. I decided it wasn't worth fighting over (though it does bug me that there's the automatic assumption babies get the father's last name), and since I'm not a fan of hyphenated last names, she got his. But I'm always intrigued to see people who buck the system...
