Sorry :/  I think you've gotten some creative ideas in this thread.  I hadn't really thought about Mars Melton, and honestly it sounds kind of like a candy bar.  Mars Meltons melt in your mouth, not in your hand?

 

How about Augustus?  I love that name.  I think it's quirky, but also serious enough that an adult can use it.

I like the previous posters suggestion....Augustus...(I like the nickname Auggie).

Some of my favorites, more earthy...Skye (Dutch spelling) and Forest (or Forrest).

A name that caught my attention recently......Evolution.

Welcome to MDC, SaRaiMelting!

 

I think what I quoted above says so much! If you like it, it honestly doesn't matter if anyone else doesn't. I think it sounds great and goes with your daughter's name well (plus, the first 4 letters of my name are Mars orngbiggrin.gif) but even if I didn't, I'd want to tell you to name your baby what you love. Mother's intuition is so huge, that little guy is dwelling in you and you alone.
