    I like Lauren with Ava a lot. They "fit" together. Other suggestions with the same feel: K/Catherine, Audrey, Elisabeth/Elizabeth, Caroline, Mary, Sophia, Cecilia, Calista, Miranda, Olivia, Eleanor, Julia, Lucia, Eliana, Lillian, Claire.

    For boys: William, Gabriel, Liam, Charles, Henry, Nicholas, Noah, Brennan, Jonah, Caleb, Colin.

    I'm a traditional namer. :eek:

    Ooooh! I like Bronwen! I also like Briony. Both unusual, but "legit" (aka, a long history of use). (I actually am okay with Bronwyn too, even though the "y" is an Americanization of the name.)

    LOL, I never could figure out how we know a baby doesn't "look" like a name.

    Me too! I think it stems from growing up with a very unusual name that was always mispronounced and mis-spelt. I was very shy as a child and wouldn't speak up. I had a teacher in grade school who told me my parents were wrong in the pronunciation of my name! :eek:

    Also like Ethan, Graeme, Evan

    Our only rule is that it has to look good on a resume. So Candy, Precious and Moon Unit are out. :D

    We love Lucas, Evan and Ethan, but they are way too common. As is Brady (ya know, Tom Brady - football).

    I keep falling in love with "Place" names, Austin, Quincy, but DH doesn't like it.

    I want something a little less common, but not ODD. I really like Polish names Luca, Christoph, Katya, but DH is into more American.

    Tough, tough choice. Every time we find a name we like, we discover it's ranked number 4-6 on the common list.

    DH loves Marcus, but Marcus Aurelius and Marcus Garvey were both war like as the name implies.

    Keep em coming!

    yes.. yes.. a million times. So he says "why didn't you just name me John?" (well doofus, it's because your uncle's name is john and we wanted to leave John open incase he ever wanted to use it for his own child_

    but but..what if you ever move to quincy (like who would..but what if??)

    I love the old fashioned sounding names - they're very distinguished without being too trendy.

    do your children use dh's last name? If so, then I think you'd not want something overly plain. Ava is such a perfect match because it's snazzy enough to look good with a plainer last name.
    I like Juliette, Charlotte, Julieanna,
    Lucas, Marcus goes really well I think, Miles, Maxwell,

    Marcus I think is my favorite ....

    I always loved Tehilla and Lehira (don't know how you would spell it here, the Gaelic spelling is Loaghaire.. and it doesn't sound as it looks..... everyone would get it wrong)

    Ava and Abigail, Aubrey (she gets her own song), or Ariella

    Ava and eh em.... Andrew. Oh, wait!! That's a "couple" :)

    Sebastian... you could really torture him with it when he's in trouble.

    This is what came up as sibling names for Ava on NameVoyager:

    Boy: Carson, Cole, Evan, Grayden, Jack, Jeison, Noah, Richard, Victor
    Girl: Chloe, Ella, Emily, Emma, Hannah, Joan, Julia, Kate, Lily, Mia, Olivia, Sophia, Stella, Story, Zoe

    Here are some names I like:

    Girls: Alexandria, Evelyn, Leah, Lucille, Rachel, Danielle, Grace, Annabel, Marie, Hannah, Allison, Camille, Madeline, Cassidy, Lillian
    Boys:Nicholas, Brent, Benjamin, Tyler, Zachary

    And then you have the option of naming your kid something like La-a (Ladasha), Talula Does the Hula, or something like that. :p And if you want a super rare name, you could name her/him: Queenie (girl) or Lige (boy).

    I have a feeling that Bode is going to be a big name in 9 months in this next of the woods.

    But you also have to decide, do you want a name that can be turned into a nickname? Like Nathan, he may be Nate or Jacob is Jake.

    I don't think Bode bodes well for the future :rolleyes:

    Macey is popular here at the moment. I like Paul for a boy :)
