pair it with a three-syllable middle name and i'll be super happy.  baby's last name will be two syllables (let's say it's "******") so you can try it out for flow.

 

commence...

Jane is beautiful! Classic! 

One of my other favorite names right now is Aurora. Jane Aurora is lovely. 

Oh, and definitely not weird since it is your middle name!

really?  i liked it at first, but not loving it as much anymore.  maybe it's because it's his mother's middle name (not that i don't adore my MIL, i do).  he thinks mae goes well with tess (dd's name).  have to think about it.

 

i'll probably have a boy and this will all be moot. smile.gif  but i do appreciate all the suggestions.

we're trying to avoid names that are short for something (i know, we're very particular).  although we have discussed cate/kate which is obviously short for something.  i'm not loving it so much anymore, with the upcoming royal wedding and all.

I love, love, love Wren.  I would use it in a heartbeat for a future baby girl, but it sounds too much like my son's name.  I think it's just beautiful!  I also love Mae and Jane.

I don't think it's an issue that Jane is your middle name.

 

My DD's middle name will be a variant of my first name.

Maeve is sort of an extension of Mae that could be a nice compromise...particularly if she is born in May. :-)

WOOOOO!!!!! banana.gif This is awesome. I hope you end up feeling more happy about it though. Who knows, maybe there will be a last minute idea after the baby arrives that you're both super-psyched about, or maybe it'll be a little boy. Regardless, good luck and congrats! :D

oh, don't get me wrong, i do like it.  in fact, the more i say it, the more it grows on me.  i think it's quite lovely, flows nicely with baby's last name and goes well with dd's name.  i just think dd's name (when we came up with it) was perfect and this just doesn't seem perfect to me, but maybe nothing will.  i'm quite excited with our boys name (but i think it's because he will be named after a dear relative).

I felt that way with our second child too. I was so happy with DS's name, but we really struggled to name DD and I was only like 90% happy with it. Now I love it and it suits her to a T. :D
