But here is the kicker, we'd rather not have a religious name.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
(begin rant)<br>
I just cant seem to settle on a name!!!!<br>
Its so hard for me because I really kinda regret my first sons name.<br>
When I was pregnant I mentioned it to my husband and thought I liked it (it means enchanted, and his middle name is Jade, so he is named after his daddys enchanting green eyes)<br>
But then decided against it because too many people hear 'aryan' instead of Arien and ASSume things.<br><br>
Unfortunately he wouldnt let me change it just for that reason, So we named him Arien, and I still dont like telling people his name because I am always afraid of the reaction. (which is usually 50/50)<br><br>
This time I feel a lot of pressure, because settling on a name you regret really SUCKS!<br><br>
Anyway, I know the middle name will more than likely be Reid (especially if he has red hair like his big brother!)<br><br>
At first I was thinking Avery Reid.<br>
Then I shied away from that because its a little girlish (despite being unisex) And it means 'elf ruler' which... well... I like my names to have good meaning and elf ruler is kinda sorta a little lame. (sorry!!!!)<br><br>
So then I thought Owen, but after repeating it 10,000 times I dont like it anymore.<br><br>
My husband is dead set on Isen. (He wanted Isis, but I nixed that because its way way too girly, so he made up Isen as a substitute)<br>
Which seems best so far... but I cant shake thinking of Lord of the rings and Isengard. (Arien turned out to also be a LOTR name, but I didnt know that til much later). Isen works because in old english it means Iron.<br>
Iron is strong and I was looking for a strong name, because this baby is super strong and always moving.<br><br>
I guess before I can commit, I need more ideas/ Feedback on Isen Reid.<br><br>
blarg. Thanks so much for reading my rant and giving me any thing you have.<br>
Sorry it was so long!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>

Ethan and Ayden are both out, because they're my best friends kids!

Oooh! I like Isen. In fact, I wish I had thought of it first. I still need a boy's name in case the baby turns out to be a boy!

This was actually my first thought too. If you do choose that name, the LOTR hype may be diminished enough by the time he is school aged.
