Well dp and I have kind of come to a partial consensus on names, but I thought I would get your opinions.

Girl:
Margaret Claire - nickname Maggie
Meghan Claire - nickname Meggie

I know they are close, but I cannot decide which I like better, but I am leaning toward Margaret. Calire is in memory of dp grandfather Clarence.

Boy:
Samuel Thaddeus
Samuel Joshua
Samuel Albert - Albert is my grandfatehrs name
Samuel Alan - Alan is my dad's middle name

So obviously we decided that Samuel will be his first name, but so undecided on a middle name. I love Thaddeus, but am leaning toward Albert because ds has dp's Dad's full name.

Not in your ddc but love name threads.

I know LOTS of Maggies but no Meggies - which would (for me) make me more likely to use Meghan. I also just really think Megan/Meghan is a pretty name, and Meg is a cool nickname for a teen or woman.

What is the last initial? If it were D, I wouldn't use Thaddeus, Albert or Alan - to avoid those initial combinations.

But I do really love middle names after people - my girls all have that.

I like Maggie, but not so much Margaret.

I think Thaddeus is cool, but Albert kinda goes better in my opinion.

I like Margaret without shortening it at all. I have a 3 syllable first name and I never used a nickname (and corrected those who did shorten it). One of my good friends is Margaret and she never shortens it either!

I like Samuel Albert.
