We're having a girl and her name is India. I like India Louise (it's both my and my husband's grandmothers' middle name). I'm still working on him with the Louise--but since his grandmother RAISED HIM--well, he can't really come up with a reasonable name NOT to name her that!

Erika, I'm surprised! I like the name Sydney a lot, but I assumed you'd go with something unusual. Don't your other three have not-everyday names? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
If we have a boy: James Isaac. For a girl: Margaret Suzanne. Family names.

Oh, come on: Tiger, Rory, and Allegra are TOTALLY common! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Rory is really the one who gets screwed, as I can say, "Tiger like the animal, Allegra like the medicine, and Rory... yeah, he's just Rory." And also, everyone remembers Tiger and Allegra, and so he's often known as "Tiger and Allegra's brother."<br><br>
Sydney is definitely the most "normal" name we've used, but that was really the only thing holding me back -- I love the name, just wish it wasn't in the top 50. I've really had my heart set on a S name for this baby, and Sydney fits.

Harriet Elva Primrose<br><br>
Harriet because we like it, Elva was DH's grandma's name (she just passed this last easter), and Primrose because DD loves the Brambly Hedge books.

Oh I positively <i>begged</i> for Maren but DH said "no way! NO WAY". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I love that name so much!

Neither of my sons have middle names, either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We debated on giving this little girl a middle name and I insisted that girls need middle names. No valid reason, I just need her to have a middle name. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
And I wish I could play but we're not announcing her name until she's born. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I would love to call a child Panda, that would be super fun. I dressed up like a Panda for Halloween last year and my Japanese students though it was a hoot! That <i>was</i> super fun!<br><br><br>
If we have a boy his name is supposed to be <i>Julian Chai,</i> the first name is dh's grandfather's name.(Chai is hebrew from Chaim, it's pronounced like Kai, not like the tea.)<br><br>
If it is a girl her name is supposed to be <i>Clementine</i>, but we can't come up with a middle name we like. We were going to use <i>Pax</i>, but I don't want to use celebrity baby names. Any ideas? I'm looking for 1 syllable. (The baby's last name has 2 syllables and starts with M)<br><br>
We have some back up names too, since dd didn't look like the name we picked out beforehand, but nothing that concrete.

We're going with either Emily Marie or Emily Margaret. DH doesn't want 2 middle names and I like Marie better but feel that I owe my Great-Aunt Margaret who was like a very very close Grandmother to dh and I growing up to pass along her memory somehow other than stories. She also happened to pass away in Oct. so maybe that's a sign? Can't decide...

Our daughter is Laynie Claire(obviously), but if for some reason the U/S was wrong our boy name is Collin Jack. Elaine is my foster mother's middle name and I wanted something like that, but neither of us like Elaine. I have to retell my DH what we decided for a girl's name...is this a bad thing???? I don't think he really cares until she is here...

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think it's lovely. But now you can say "Sydney like the city" so you HAVE to come with something for Rory!<br><br>
I really like all their names, btw.
