Brooke - pretty, elegant, classic, simple as it's single syllable
Brynn -strong, simple yet pretty, less commonly heard of
Brooklyn -makes Brooke sound 'trendy' instead of classic
There are those who think a child can be called anything at all. Gender is to some people a stereo type- where by a girl has every right to be called Andrew and a boy could be called Marie. Funny...
I still worry every time and I'm 10 weeks!
Glad all is well Moonkai.
I had a wonderful 10 week scan today, little one was perfect size and a nice strong heart beat.
How's everyone else?
The best tip I was ever given was from a mother of six- she said don't check the clock when you attend to the baby.
A baby has no concept of time- they don't know if they cried 3 hours ago or 10...
Yes, I read it as Aldi too!
It's through Germany and Australia too.
Definitely avoid that spelling.

Congratulations on expecting a boy.
What a lucky boy to have such a great name.

I am not a big fan of honouring... so I say just use what you had planned to use.
After all, when you picked the original name you hadn't planned to honour him using it so just because he passed...

Madeline- I like this spelling! BUT if it's this spelling then I say MAD-eh-LINE (like the French girl character)
If you want Mad- eh- LYN go your bottom choice.
I know Madeleine is the Nameberry...
I also agree with everyone else.
Also, be thankful he didn't insist it was her first name and wouldn't discuss it.
I love the idea of calling her FN "Dee"- it would be like your special nickname...
I thought I'd dodged the revolting morning sickness of previous pregnancies- but for the last 2 nights I am suddenly extra nauseous and vomiting. "Great". You'd think by nearly 10 weeks it would ease...
Great news, welcome Potter.
Hmmm... I like the idea of honouring your background.
On the other hand, I do love the name Hugo- especially the meaning.
My general rule of thumb is that if you stop and think it might be embarrassing that it is your brain telling you it is.

All three of my children have 2 middle names.
Filling out passport forms etc was a REAL pain.
Many official places only recognise ONE middle name (the first mn is the default one). This worked out...
I really like Iris as a name.
I particularly like the meanings associated.
I also like the song "Iris".
Although Iris Rosalie is very floral I do like it.
Iris Juliet is very pretty.

I confess if a child said to me their name was Atlee I would presume they were saying Natalie.
I prefer Atlee as at least it looks feminine.
Katie- very sorry to hear you sad news.
Moonkal- I am finding if I eat dairy products regularly it keeps the nausea away (eg yoghurt, cottage cheese).
July- great to hear was all was well at...
I thought about the names that have sound links and here are my suggestions based on names that sound similar:
Have you considered other "elle' names?
Danielle or Daniella
Welcome to the thread ladies!!!
Jess- you and I are due about the same! I'm 9 weeks tomorrow too- my EDD is 6 Oct.
I have been lucky- despite the odd moment of nausea I am not sicking up!
Weirdly my nausea is getting worse now I am 8 weeks.
My uterus is starting to get aches from stretching... I'm 9 weeks...

Funny!!! I was served a salad with a bought meal the other night (I wouldn't eat it anyway due to the risks) BUT the thought of any dressing on it made me gag anyway!!!
The other pregnancy symptom...

Good to the loo... ALOT.
Super hero sense of smell.
Sore BBs that seemed to be growing daily.
Can't seem to eat enough yoghurt... not keen on oily things.

I am actually considering Henry Thomas as a name.
