My older three are all named after someone.
Alicia (uh lee see uh) Rafford (after her grampa who she shared a bday with)
Nolan Justin (after daddy)
Seth Scott (named for his two uncles)
Now this little one. We still like the name Emily Sue (Named after me) For a boy I like Keith and Emmit. I think this little one will be named with the middle name Roger if its a boy after that same grampa of DH's. Otherwise I just don't know. I can assure you the babies first name will not be Roger!
Oh and a name DH and I LOVE is Nicholas. Our last name is Nichols though:( Is that too tacky?? Nicholas Roger Nichols?
It does sound a little "cutesy" or something. But Nicholas is such a great name. I think you could get away with it if you didn't mind people continually pointing it out when they ask you the baby's name. People do that with a lot of names, though.
We've been watching NewsRadio lately and the big billionaire boss is named Jimmy James (James James?). It works for him.
Mom to DS(14), DS(12), DD(9), DS(6), DS (4), and DS(2)
I have known a couple kids with first and last names like that- Oliver Olivera, Jens Jensen, Matt Mathews...
And the best Nichols I ever met was a girl named Penny Nichols. They called her Six Cents
I really like the name Clementine. Clem. I also like an Aztec name, Xochitl (SO-cheel) and call her Xoe (like Zoey)
My son is Phoenix and I am tempted to name a second boy Fawkes (any HP fans out there?)

I knew a Penny Nikel! Have always loved it, but didn't envy her. ;)
And welcome, hope you get to become official with us soon!
Baking a cupcake at 98.6°. This little lady is due early March 2012.
I absolutely love the name Tsalika (sal-i-ka) I have a good friend named that and I've heard her get more compliments on her name than anyone before. We call her Tsal or Tsally for short. Unfortunately, DH doesn't care for it :(
I also really like the name Araceli!
