For heavens sake, my mother used to mix me and my brother's names up all the time (Donna & Brent), so I'm sure even if we named them very differently I"d still mix them up. For the second part of my question, we thought we'd give him a middle name from my dh's side. DH was very close to one of his grandfathers, and his name was Romeo, and "Hudson Romeo" goes well with our last name. Is Romeo a really mean middle name? Kids eventually get around to discussing what their middle names are, and well..... just wondering what other people think! I like it but don't want to sentence my child to a lifetime of hating his name. Be honest!
In my HO I do think Hudson and Hunter are too much alike. Maybe it's just because I'm not a fan of same first letter names for siblings. Unless there's multiple siblings and onl like 2 have same first letters or something. My friend's DD's name is Alanna and when she found out she was having another DD she specifically searched for another "A" name. (She ended up using the name August) I dunno..just seems kinda generic to me. Romeo would be a fine MN. And ya, kids don't pay attention to MN's anyway. I will say that the name does flow.

ok....and I'm not trying to be snotty, I know many people choose alternative spellings...but is your spelling of "Sebastian" intentional or just a misspelling in your post? Just curious...

I think we are pretty definite on James for his first name


but we are still deciding between
Steven
Sebastian
(after family members)
Riordan
Aidan
Reilly
Dermot/Diarmuid
Lorcan
Dubhlainn/Doolin
(for our Irish heritage & his Irish conception )

Yay! That's probably the first time I didn't get the "Yuck" response about the names!

I don't know why but that makes me very excited.

My soon-to-be DS is Logan *****. Logan and ***** are both from UK cultures and mean various types of land. LV is my adopted (step) father's grandfather's initials. Logan ***** was a name that was the hero in a romance I read years ago. I just really liked the name, so...

Check out my radio blog, Pagan Musings.
I'm a head-covering witchy mama to DS ('06) and DD ('10) with DH, Stormie, a Heathen breadwinning daddy.

since this one's a boy, we've picked Jefferson Carter and we're going to call him J.C. dh's grandfather was a J.C and we wanted to name our son after him. i really like the name Jefferson, but not Jeff. (sorry if there are any jeff's out there, i really don't know why i don't like it) if this little one were a girl, she would be Cameryn Elizabeth. we already have a Kya and a Carson (both girls) so cameryn kinda fit well.

i really like the name clementine!! really cute!
