I LOVE the name Geneva and someone who I really look up to has that name. But Dh doesn't love it and it actually does not go with the middle name I have picked out, so it probably won't work.

I think we have a boy middle name picked out! I've always loved Alexander and DH loves the idea that we might be able to give him the nickname Xander. The first name we have picked out is kind of unusual so we wanted a more normal middle name in case he wants to go by that as he gets older.

PS are you saying Ah-Na or Eh-na? I have to vote for the Ah version personally, but both are great.
We're going for the 'Ah-Na'.

too funny.. Dh is all Greek and that movie was FRIGHTENINGLY accurate!! luckily, my DH is very non traditional greek and very americanized
.. but the other day he did say he wanted to use a Greek name ... which he refused to consider when I was PG with Evan ?? weird... I love Demetra for a girl but it doesn't go too well with last name, also I like Elena.. he *might * go for that one since his mom is Helen (americanized from Elena or Elene or something Greek I am not sure of spell...) I guess we'll see!

Elena IS nice. I have always liked Elora too, and I think DH has only seen the movie Willow once, so I just might be able to get away with it.

Whoever was looking for a "G" name for a girl, I like Georgina (and to a lesser extent Georgianne).

Who was it that mentioned German names?? Anywhoo, I was looking some up and hubby and I had a decent conversation about a few. It doesn't include a German name, but I believe we actually almost nailed down our girl's name. I am amazed!

We also ALMOST nailed down a boy's name, but I am not sure I should so this. I noticed in the German names that my maiden name (which I always go by) is in there as a first name. We thought of using it as a middle name, but it's not your conventional name, either. I just don't know. *sigh*

However, hubby seems to LIKE it, which is a HUGE deal for us!

Sarah is definitely my top choice, and has been since high school. DH loves it too, so we've not even discussed girls names. There are names I like for further girl children if we're so lucky!

Ireland
Emily or Emma
Lyric
Carissa
Caitley
Rowan
Serena or Serenity
Arwen
Bronwyn
Savannah
Padma
Parvati
Claire
Hannah
Grace
Ginnifer
Maya (but we already know one of these, so probably not)
Liliana
Leilani or Leila

We had a girl's name nailed down, so of course the ultrasound revealed boy bits! Our girl name was probably going to be Kendra Beth - although I campaigned for Kendra Elizabeth, and Annika was also in the running. I was also musing over Brynja (Brinn-ya) after my grandfather, Brynjulf. My husband thought that the spelling and pronunciation would be an issue, and he was probably right.

We have some contenders for boy names, but won't announce until the baby is born. We did that with our first child (Dylan Leon) and it was nice to have something that was just ours... not to mention, we skipped over all the potential commentary from relatives on what they thought of the name!
