I'll do gipro2003 :)
Luke Edward Sebastian - Very nice! Two middle names is a bit too much for me personally, but these are all great names. Luke is such a friendly, cool name, I think it would...
I don't quite get the reason for tracking stuff, unless you want to be sure you actually are ovulating (if there's some doubt there)? What does it change about things?
I mean, making a baby is only...
Reuben Alexander Isaac. Definitely.
I also really like Felix, but with Alexander Isaac it's all a bit zzzy, if you know what I mean.
So my second choice would be Roscoe.
It was too hard to pick a top 3! I really like your style :)
I really love all these ones, so call it a top 6.
I would choose May. It's the start of 24-hour daylight, everything gets green finally, everything starts to warm up, the summer birds are coming. It's my favourite month in Iceland!
Well maybe whining about it on the internet had some sort of effect, because it finally turned up today! So almost 6 weeks to the day, and they told me 4-6 weeks. Patience is a virtue. I'm thankful I...
It's 100% a matter of personal preference, the time of day makes no difference at all as long as you are consistent. The best time is a time when you are always awake and you will remember. I used to...

Ekkert means 'nothing' in Icelandic, so this made me lol :)
I once named an egg Egbert, when we were doing the thing in secondary school where you look after an egg to supposedly teach you how to...
RE: My personal bilingualism plans.
Although I know, and am somewhat resigned to the fact, that my children will be dominant in Icelandic, I am pretty optimistic about our chances. For one thing,...
Well, as claragrey said, the family from your church use 'minority language at home' (or rather, it seems, a minor variation on that where they only use the minority language amongst themselves,...
I've been getting a bit worried as it's 40 days now since I induced the miscarriage (6 weeks on Tuesday), and no sign of a period yet. I know logically I should go get a test to make sure it's...
Definitely a lot of Polish children, yes! I think it is not legally possible to use letters not appearing in the English alphabet - although this certainly does make things easier, so a bit of both...
They really ought to combine spellings. Anyone up for doing an alternative top 100 with combined spellings? I know Muhammad would be the solid number one for boys.
I love all the different...
I much prefer Jack to Jackson. Jackson Lane sounds like an address more than a person's name to me. Jack Henry is very nice, you really can't go wrong there.
Some traditional ideas:
100% agree with this. It seems like a lot of people have a very simplistic view of childhood bilingualism. Put in two languages and bingo, an actively bilingual child. I've never done it, no children...

Here are 5 that I love and consider traditional but a little different:

If I met them and they seemed like sensible, decent people? Of course I would take them seriously, although with most of them I would be unable to avoid laughing on the inside.
If I just saw the...

I have a mn that my parents 'just liked' and my brother has our grandfather's name for his mn. It's never bothered me in the slightest. It never even occurred to me that it should perhaps bother me...

I actually think it's pretty cool to have no middle name. If the first name is strong enough to stand alone, I think simplicity is very attractive aesthetically - sort of a less is more thing. I...
There is a famous Icelandic director named Baltasar Kormákur (Icelandic version of Balthazar Cormac) and he is occasionally known as Balti. Might be a bit too much of a curry overtone for English,...
As in the famous Biblical murderer, the first murderer? No, I'm no Christian but this name has far too much negative cultural baggage, the e is not helping in my opinion.
Robin is currently my favourite English boy's name! It's just perfect, in my opinion.
After recent events I'd worry that maybe some people would interpret it as some sort of tribute to Robin...
Wait... so the reaction you were hoping for was, "Huh... that's kind of silly"? Well thumbs up, you nailed it! If you would like to name your son Jackson John, go for it. You don't need the...
Do you live in the USA? Have you checked the name popularity stats, because Noah is the number 1 boys' name in the USA at the moment? It's also 14 in England & Wales, 19 in Ireland and 4 in...
Out of interest, did you have any other front-runners for the first name that you have considered? Or are you both pretty much set on Jackson? A different first name with the middle name John could...
