Nice names, ladies. I was wondering at the pronunciation of Janez. Sorry, I'd definitely be one of the people who called his name wrong. But as long as you don't mind correcting it, no big deal. I have a difficult-to-pronounce name, and have spent most of my life correcting people. No big deal & just part of life. It also means I get to go by my first name a lot, since it's unusual, I'm most often the only one.
We've been working on names forever, and since we have had all boys, the girl names we picked in the beginning are pretty much still a go, except for Olivia or Lydia, which were our top picks many years ago, before they became so popular. Now, our top girl names are either Annabelle (for DH's mom, whose middle name is Ann, and my grandmother, whose middle name was Isobel), or Emilyne, because I really like it. If it's a boy (which we're just assuming it will be, lol), we're leaning towards Cavan (which is Irish). Middle names are still very much in the air, and the lists are much longer for those. But we have plenty of time to figure it out. We'll have it decided before the 3rd trimester. We like to have time to get used to the name and fall in love with it before baby is born. Although since we don't plan to find out gender this time, I'm not sure how it'll work.
