    Lennox, Callum, and Silas are my favorites. They were all on my list! In the end, we named our son Milo James. :)

    Baby Boy!!!

    Milo James arrived two weeks ahead of schedule on September 6th. He is 6lbs, 4oz of pure perfection. Thanks to everyone who voted on his name polls!

    We had one a couple of months ago, when we found out this baby was a boy! Initially, we planned to find out with our friends during the party, but the gender was just TOO obvious on the anatomy scan...

    I like Jack Hawthorne, because I like the pairing of a familiar classic (Jack) with a lesser-used middle (Hawthorne). Good luck!

    I love the name John. I work with kids, and I don't meet that many anymore, so I don't think of it as being all that common. It's a refreshing change from Aiden-Caiden-Brayden-Jaden etc.

    Agreed. A double middle would be nice and obviously meaningful for you, but I really don't care for the smooshed-together FaithHope thing. It looks like a typo.

    Poll: I think your in-laws are just pronouncing it...

    I think your in-laws are just pronouncing it incorrectly. The 'w' helps create the soft -a sound (rhyming with moth) as opposed to the harder -a sound (rhyming with bath). I like Jack Hawthorne. :)

    I personally associate surname-names (when they are actual family names) and the use of II, III, IV naming patterns with wealthier families... it seems to be more important to higher-profile families...

    This was also my first thought. I'm not sure whether it's regional, but I've lived in Kentucky, Texas, and Florida... and it was familiar slang in those three states. Of course, I work with kids...

    I'm a Catherine, with a maternal grandmother named Cassie (not short for anything else, just Cassie). My mother thought it was a close-enough way to honor a Cassie, since she didn't particularly...

    My name is Catherine, and when I introduce myself, people often ask me if that's actually what I go by. They sometimes seem surprised and press further, asking whether anyone ever calls me Kate or...

    I make a distinction between bedsharing (same surface) and co-sleeping (separate but adjacent surfaces). Co-sleeping is distinctly safer due to the separate firm surface, yet still allows you to...

    I also watch Hart of Dixie, and I have always kind of hated that character's name. I just keep waiting to find out that it's a nickname for some other "real" name. I think Clementine works as a...

    Soldier definitely comes off as a very patriotic choice, and is also such an unusual occupational name choice that it has the (possibly unintended) effect of typecasting what kind of child he/she...

    I agree. My husband is dead-set on using Miles for the "birth certificate" name, even though I think it's echoey when paired with Charleston and even though we plan to actually call him Milo. If I...

    I agree with the majority of the others who have commented. Spell the name Barrett and then just use the nickname you want. Changing the spelling of the actual name is unnecessary and potentially...

    I was aware that the name was Biblical, but I don't necessarily think of it as a Jewish name. Actually, the only little Asher I know has a Baptist pastor as a father, so I think it just strikes me...

    You can look up the most popular girls' names from the year your characters would have been born AND look by state on the Social Security website, if that would make it feel more authentic.

    I think it falls more within the "classic and timeless" realm. Yes, it's popular, but it certainly isn't popular in the trendy sense. It's like Michael, also currently top 10, or Emily. Certain...

    I'm a Catherine with a sister named Emily in real life, so that's my first thought. Emmie/Emme Jane might be just quirky enough.

    I like Lenora, either in its entirety or with the nickname Nora. As for the middle names, I strongly prefer Eve to Jade. Eve sounds better with Lenora to me and generally sounds more timeless. ...
