OK, I have butterflies in my stomach as I do this -- since I have been pretty secretive about this, BUT, I think we have narrowed it down to this (and I DO reserve to right to change at the last minute):
Boy (and I think that it is a boy):
Theodore Caulfield (nn Ted or Teddy; Caulfield is the middle name, a family name from my side)
Diana probably-Caulfield though not settled on middle name totally
Both are 3 sylables and sound good with our 2-sylable last name.
For me, it is important that the names go well with our last name, of course that I love the way they sound -- and I am interested in the meaning of the name. I am not totally thrilled that Theodore means "gift of god" since we are not regligous and I have problems with some organized religions. I like anything that refers to pre-christian relgions, though like Diana, and since Theodore is Greek, I feel that it is more refering to a god in general rather than a specific god, like the christian or jewish god. Anyway, a lot of the aversion to the saint names has come only recently, since before we got married MIL has been trying to convert us to the catholic faith, so I have become defensive in response to this.
I just have always loved the name Theodore. And Diana, goddess of the moon and huntress, I don't think anything could be cooler than that!
Well, the names are pretty much chosen so not much point to tell me if you hate them
-- but just wanted to share.
