1. How many lists do you have? One for boys, one for girls? Or do you have more than that?
I have numerous lists, many long neglected. I have one master list called "Names" that I think of as my...
I have a brother Paul who will always be Paulie to me. I don't think Polly is so different. Seeing it spelled out looks like a girl's name, but you usually hear nicknames more often than see them. ...
This has happened to me for 20 years. I fall head over heels for a name, and I may actually love it for years, but it inevitably falls off my list of top favorites. Sometimes, they get bumped back...
Such a troublesome surname.
I sometimes wish my husband had taken my surname (Wolf) instead. LOL

What names make you think strawberry blonde?

I would go with a name you and your husband love. Your son can always call her Hannah as a nickname if he's so attached to the name. Nicknames don't have to make sense. ;)
If you're hating all the names you see, maybe you just need to take a break from it for a little while. Then you can come back to the search fresh. Or just find some names you don't completely hate...

I'm not a fan of Rod (mainly for the teasing potential), but the right personality could certainly carry that nickname just fine. And Roderick is a good solid name. It would give your son other...
I found this pretty humorous except for the part about grandma knitting a blanket. My grandma died while I was pregnant. And my son has a crocheted blanket that a family friend finished, because my...

I'd go with either
Mila Sage (mee-luh)
Personally, I prefer Mila, because I would totally use it as a nickname for Camille (on my long list). And I also wouldn't worry about...
I've considered Frank many times, but I can't get past the image of my great-great grandfather, Frank Darling. I guess I don't see anything inherently wrong with the name. I just very strongly...
I've had that happen a lot over the years. I think that's why I keep looking back at the same names over and over. Because one will just jump out at me sometimes, and I may have never really cared...

I wouldn't use an a-ending name unless it happens to be the only name my hubby approves (assuming I even have a daughter next time).
I feel like Frederic fits the best with your other sons, but if you like the others better, don't hesitate to use them.

I'm eccentric. ;)
40% classic eccentric
30% modern eccentric
15% classic unusual
10% classic conservative
5% modern conservative
I'd rank them:

Hugo (I love this name, but obesity does run in my husband's family. :( )

I don't see a problem as long as you avoid the nickname Emma. I have an older cousin John and a younger brother Jonathan. There was never any real confusion. My brother occasionally goes by Jon...

Today, I'm feeling:
Ansel Theodoric or Hubert Theodoric
Astrid Isadora or Solenne Isadora

Because it looks more masculine, balanced, cultural, less like Giardia.

Probably related to this name:

If I had to make a guess, I'd guess it might be related to Einar or Ingram, but I'm no expert on Norse names.
Impressions I get from Penelope:
Penelope is bright pink.
It feels like a silky ribbon, but it fills up and sits heavy in my mouth like a very rich dessert.
I also think of pennies in an...
I've encountered other Rachels who shared one of my interests (arts, biology, languages), but they all seemed pretty different to me. I think the sheer number of Rachels makes for a rather motley...

When we were naming our son, I was worried my husband would veto everything like I've heard from so many others. But it was a pretty painless process. (I have a feeling it may be harder when we try...
