    A colleague brought her new baby Niamh (Neve) into work today. She has an older child called Dylan, and I love the sib-set of Dylan and Niamh.

    I agree with Weaverblue that people tend to be more conservative with boys' names, and also more conservative with the first child's name, so if Evan is the eldest it is even more believable.

    I think people are starting to acknowledge more and more that sexuality isn't a box that you are stuck in, e.g. you are in the 'gay' box or the 'straight' box. I know a guy who is married to a woman...

    I'd say Ray-gan as in Ronald Reagan.

    If you like Ree-gan though, maybe go for Regan which is a Shakespearean name from King Lear (although in the play she's not a very nice person...)

    I'm not against changing spellings at all but I just think Ulthea sounds more like a medication or a disease than a name.
