    Lyric (which I SO ADORE) strikes me as all girl. I'm inferring from the mn Julian that you're expecting a gentleman, so I'd go with Sage Julian (which I also like!) in that case.

    Given that my first day in the program is Wednesday, I'm uncertain how my peers in the school view the data from Rooks' study. What I have seen, however, turns my stomach. I confess that I have not...

    I'm actually studying at Birthingway in Portland. I considered Bastyr very heavily, but ultimately chose Birthingway for a laundry list of reasons irrelevant to this conversation, so I'll spare you....

    My vote goes for Brenna. If you love it so much (understandably so; it's lovely), I think you should go for it, especially since you may not have another daughter to "save" it for (even if you have...

    I didn't know how to pronounce it until others said so in this thread. I think she'd be in for a lifetime of misspellings and mispronunciations. Those are big "nos" for me.

    I voted for Jonathan as I prefer it to Jackson, but I'm going to add my voice to the chorus: If you love Jack (as I do - boy, do I ever), just name him Jack. It's enough name to stand on its own two...

    girls:
    Riley - cute, but NMS
    Megan - I like Megan a lot. I prefer Margaret as a means of getting to Meg, but Megan would be a refreshing alternative to Margaret these days.
    Macey - NMS

    I agree with blade. Juniper and Poppy are very sweet independently, but the P alliteration is a bit much in the middle. Definitely doesn't strike me as too many botanicals, however; perhaps another...

    I've just moved from Texas to Oregon, so my memory of barely tolerable Texas summers is vivid in my mind. If I could have a baby in May, right before the really intolerable period of summer begins,...

    Poll: I'll add my vote to the pile for Dante Vincent as...

    I'll add my vote to the pile for Dante Vincent as a full name. Vincent was my father's name, so I have obvious love for it; but I think Dante works better in the first name position in this case.

    None are really my style, but Virginia Primrose is the most palatable by a landslide. Ginger would be lovely to see on a little girl, and if she wants to use Virginia professionally, she'll have the...

    Elizabeth, by a long shot. One of my favorites.

    I like Leah, but I much prefer the pronunciation "LAY-ah" (a la Star Wars) as opposed to the far more common "LEE-ah." I realize I'm in the...

    This. I thought I read that wrong at first.

    I don't have a whole lot of love going on for hyper-feminine, ribbons-and-frills names in general, so most of these don't do much for me - but I do...

    I voted for Chloe Magnolia. While I like the name Abigail, I think Magnolia works better as a middle to Chloe. Sienna is simply NMS, and while I adore the name Rain, I prefer it spelled that way. ...
