One of my best friends in college was named Langston. He was artistic and intelligent and talented. I've always thought the name was nice but it fit him perfectly and didn't seem odd at all. He loved...
Alaric - LOVE, see my signature. :) I can't use this name because of my last name (too many harsh "ark" sounds), but I acutally know an Alaric and he's pretty awesome.
Baylock - This would be a...
I feel pretty neutral about a lot of highly popular names. There are names I wouldn't ever choose myself, but I find fine on other people.
The only thing I feel physically ill over is creative...

Nasal aspirator (take the one from the hospital, they are the best!) and saline.
I was also told that a baby bathtub was useless, but once she arrived we ran out and got one! So much easier to...

I'm not sure I can do the whole alphabet (x?) but I'll try:
A: Aria or Arden
G: Gaia or Gwendolyn

I always thought it was more odd if the child did have a coinciding birthday. I'd think it'd be too on the nose, if you know what I mean. I love names like Autumn or Noelle or November or Summer or...

Nova was a name I loved secretly for a long time. After searching for most of my pregnancy without any name sticking longer than a week or two, I finally brought Nova to the table and...

It's so hard, those two weeks. I just got AF this morning so I know it was all in my head (again). I kinda felt like I wasn't pregnant this time, though. I just hoped, ya know?
But that's okay....
I've been using a Ergo hand-me-down but my daughter doesn't like it at all (to clarify, I love it. It's comfortable and is ergonomically correct and simple to put on). She sounds really similar to...

Aw, thank you so much for chiming in.
That's pretty much what I figured! It's both symptom spotting creating symptoms and the fact that #2 could be totally different OR the same. Why can't our...

You all give such wonderful advice I thought I would ask my question here for the first time...
My DH and I are trying for #2 and I'm in that dreaded TWW time period. I'm at 8DPO...
As a Laurel myself, I wholly approve of that name and have never had anyone reference the Arrow when hearing my name. I watch the Arrow and for a while it was actually odd having someone called my...
I had preeclampsia with my daughter and had to be induced 2 weeks early. I was terrified, but everything was relatively smooth. They started by inserting a Foley bulb to start dilation naturally...

Those are some great suggestions above!
I agree that sharing is really hard. It's also difficult because everyone and their neighbor asks what you're going to name the baby and when you tell them...

Finnegan and Spencer are by far my favorites from your boys name list. Spencer is a little less popular at the moment, so it appeals to me slightly more. However, if popularity had nothing to do with...
Well, given that my English friend's name is Fiona and she's always commenting on how people here think it's so unusual when it isn't in England...I think Fiona is a lovely choice.

It all sounds perfectly acceptable to me!
We Americans can be so prudish sometimes. Start to separate them when one starts puberty, but I think they'll be capable of showering on their own by then...

Great answers, here. Lovely and supportive. I agree that it's not such a drastic thing to be child-free nowadays or to have no desire for children as a woman. If you don't want kids, don't feel...
What a lovely name your little girl has. So unique and beautiful.
Let's see...for a girl here are some ideas:
Indigo nn Indie
Geneva nn Ginny
Sunniva nn Sunny (or Sunnie)
Thalia nn Tallie or...

Be careful of the combo Vincent Von because of the famous actor Vince Vaughn.
I'm not a huge fan of the name Vincent, but I love the idea of keeping the "-on" ending. That's a nice pattern. Here...

You could say "No, like Captain Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly, so there." But Malcolm in the Middle is a really good show, so definitely not insulting, IMO.
I hate that people always have a...
In my daughters Gymboree group. An adorable little girl.
Another friend named her son James.
I love Aria Laurel (might be biased on this one since my name is Laurel...) and Aria is my favorite, favorite, favorite name. We can't use it though because our last name is Stark. If Winter doesn't...

So much is wrong with this. Firstly BJ's isn't that great of a restaurant. Secondly, lame prize for a lifetime of teasing. And thirdly, if someone is thinking naming their child something as stupid...

I've seen it used on both. I worked with a nice guy named Lennox and thought his name was really cool and unusual. Then I met a girl named Lennox and thought it was really cool and unusual. lol....
