    Interesting question. I have used family names, both as first and middles, but we haven't given a first name that is the first name of anyone still living. That feels a bit too close or confusing...

    I agree with labelo. Also, every generation scratches its head at the weird stuff the rising generation does, and the same goes for subcultures within the same generation. I don't understand the...

    I think thetxbelle has it right. I didn't have internet access when I was pg with our first, and I think I looked at a baby name book or two from the library, but that was it. We went with a family...

    Harvey and Harold are both names I have a hard time seeing on a kid; to me, they are in the category of old man names that are a bit too clunky to make a comeback. Of the two, I prefer Harvey.

    I like both forms, so I would put Charles on the birth certificate and call him Charlie. I know that lots of adults named Charles go by Charlie, but it feels juvenile to me; I would want him to have...

    I think it's a strong name and goes well with your other names. Personally, I like it, and considered it as a middle name. It's one of those names that I only like in its full form; I don't like...

    It feels masculine to me, but that may be due to Twilight. I don't know if I had ever heard the name before that.

    Embryo hadn't even occurred to me. It reminds me of ember, which makes it a...

    Roman is a strong, handsome name, IMO. Unusual (where I am, anyway) as a name but still very familiar, which is a great balance. It was on our short list for this baby, and I did have a hard time...

    I love it. I've known one Ephraim, from a big family of little kids with biblical names. It was very cute on him. I'm not sure how well it would age, though.

    I like it. Goes well with your other names. It is a much softer name than your first two; even though they're one-syllable names, they have a mix of hard and soft sounds, whereas Heath is kind of...
