    I wonder how many people mispronounce the name and call him Killer.

    That's hilarious! I consciously chose names that were short so my kids would not have a difficult time learning to spell and then write their names. Now that's an obsessive compulsive planner. :p

    Boys: Owen (which was supposed to be Caleb's name, but no one in my family liked it), Nathan, William.

    Girls: Raelynn (Caleb's name had he been a girl), Adria, Grace, Megan, Hannah (Austin's name had he been a girl), Olivia.

    As much as I love Caleb's name, I wish I would have realized before he was born how much his name and mine sound similar (Kayla-Caleb, try saying both of the names out loud to yourself a few times), especially if you don't put a lot of emphasis on the B in Caleb's name. I guess that's why my family nicknamed him Blub...lol. :)

    Me again:eek:

    Both my boys have 2 first names. I have a long name (4 and a halvish). DH has a short name (2). So we compromised for medium names for the boys (3).:D
    Funnily enough, it's:

    Ian - 3 letters
    Alex - 4 letters
    Paula - 5 letters
    DH's name - 6 letters
    :D

    And who said math isn't fun?:eek:

    Sorry for the OT.

    ETA - many people have said that Alex's name is really good because he can choose to use the short or the long form. Ummm....nope, didn't give him that choice, LOL.

    Our youngest boy is Levi. You can find a lot of words rearranging his name.

    I think our daughter has one of the more simple, yet unique, names that everyone seems to think is really beautiful, but for only 4 letters, most folks have a really difficult time with it. We always thought it would be a no brainer, even in the U.S., but Simple is not always the best. :D

    As you can see from my dd's names, they are not all real common, but they are also spelled uniquely (at least they were at the time I named them). For boys names we liked, Patrick, Sean, Neal, Theodore (Teddy), and Ryan.

    We are having a little girl in June and have not told anyone her name. People have an opinion on everything and for some reason they tend to not restrain themselves when talking about baby name choices! I won't post the name we picked out but I will let you know the others that we considered.

    Boys: (Proper names of course with nick names added!)
    David, Joey, Nick, Ryan, Beau, Steven, Max, and we already have a Ben and Sam.

    Girls:
    Tia, Janie, Megan, Sarah, Chrissy, Lonnie, Lauren and Alissa

    Girls: I like the name, Lauren (on your list). Clara and Noelle are also very pretty names IMO.

    Boys: I've got nothing...sorry!

    I thought about Esme'... unusual and feminine, just like Ava. Of course, since I know its a boy, well, Esme wouldn't be a very good name for him!

    I love Jack as a boy. I wanted to name Kaleb Jack, but Pat did not want us to use any names that started with a J.

    I still like Riley for a girl, I just wish I has spelled it Rylee.
