I agree with this. I am not opposed to Kennedy as a boy's mn, though. I actually think it could be very handsome in the right combination. I just don't like it with Jeremy.
Edit-- I love the...

I didn't comment on your other post, so here are my takes on the whole list:
-Jameson: makes me think of the whiskey, but I still don't dislike it.
-Samuel: LOVE Samuel and nn "Sam" despite its...
I love all three! Louisa is my top choice. It's one of my absolute favorite names but I can't use it. People may think it's odd that she's a "Louisa Mae" because of the literary connection, but if...
My vote is Willa Mae, although I adore Eliza. Eliza Frances would be my second choice.
@Kate and luckystar-- thanks for the recs! I am convinced that it's an iron issue, as I have a diet that's pretty high in iron anyway-- lots of eggs and leafy greens. I think I'm going to have to...
Good news on our waiting-to-try front-- husband just got a new job offer with a higher salary, which is probably going to move up our house hunting to the spring, and takes some pressure off on the...
I like all of these names! Calvin is one of my long-standing favorites, but we can't use it because it sounds terrible with our last name, which is two...

I have met several boys named Chase. It's kind of "little boyish" to me and not really my style...but, that said, I do think it's cute, totally usable, and it's very popular in the area of the United...
I think Reid looks less like a surname than Reed. I also think it looks nicer. If we have a boy, we plan to use it to honor my father and brother, who have Reid as a middle name.

I know a baby Audrey and an adult Audrey, but no Aubrey. I would definitely not give up a name you love because it is popular, so long as it's not overwhelming in popularity. Really, as long as it's...
Loretta, Henrietta, Susannah, and Everett all hit me suddenly.
Conrad Theodore- like
Henry Wyeth - love
Linus Calder - dislike
Miles Kilpling - love
Noble Declan - dislike
Oliver Klaus -like
@Dindlee that's a fair point. I am sure I will need the iron once I'm pregnant. Maybe I will try one lighter in iron for pre-pregnancy and switch afterwards :)
Thanks, all. I think I am going to give it until the end of the week before switching brands. My side effects seemed to abate after I ate lunch, so possibly I just need to take it with food. I think...
Hello all! I am not pregnant yet, but plan on TTC in a few months. I have been taking a prenatal vitamin for about a week now. I'm taking Rainbow Light Prenatal One, which is plant-based, all...
I think Isaac fits best with Levi and Max, but they're all nice choices. Noah felt trendy 5-10 years ago, and now it's settling back into classic territory.
I agree, Dotti. This is the first time I've felt mature enough to handle parenthood. I can't imagine taking on the responsibility before now. Still, because of the prevalence of very young mothers in...
@anotherkate I feel your pain about the wait. Logically, there are a lot of things dictating that I wait until at least May. We want to put more back in savings. I'm in a close friend's wedding this...
I like it and I love that spelling of Nicolas. I may be partial because that's my brother's name :) he goes by Cole.
As far as whether it's too popular, it probably depends on where you live. I don't have a lot of interaction with children, but I still know four Avas under 3-4 years old. Even though it's super...

Some of my current favorite "classics" are:
I pronounce it like Zavier, and it doesn't make me think of savior at all. I wouldn't get judgy if someone introduced their child with the "ex" pronunciation, though :)
Moonkai-- I've heard the same thing. Something to do with saliva or the bacteria in the mouth...I've seen it on "tips" for TTC and message boards before. However, it seems like they're referring to...

I like the idea of sticking with literary names. Of those, I really like Wilder, Auden, and Beckett. I am not crazy about Keats as a first name. As for the non-literary names, I love Oliver despite...
I like the combo, but I am with Kala on this one. I've lived all over the U.S. and I can't even imagine it as one syllable. For me it's definitely two syllables, though the second is shortish. The...
