    Just wanted to update for anyone else who's going through the same thing in the future.

    Uh oh -- I tried this out for an afternoon and the alternate name felt too right. I actually didn't see that one coming!

    Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, I'm sure it'll pass :)
  3. Not name remorse, but still feeling off about it.

    My daughter is nearly four weeks old. We had lists upon lists that we narrowed down, and then went in to delivery with a small handful of favorites for each sex. She was born in the middle of the...

    Darn it, I just heard about this. Our boy front-runner is Caius. I wouldn't expect a popularity jump from Rachel Zoe, but the timing is suspect (due in <3 weeks).

    Middles for Caius?

    I lean toward one- or three-syllable middles because our last name has two syllables (prefer 2-1-2 or 2-3-2 over 2-2-2).

    Last name starts with M.

    Due in a month! Thanks in advance for your...

    Carolina - absolutely. Some may argue it depends on your region, which may add complications for cultural "rights" to the name.

    Nadine - certainly usable.

    Delilah - yes, love it. If I hadn't...

    Three-syllable, feminine middles for Ezri

    Suggestions would be so appreciated!

    Ezri is currently in our top three, but we need some fresh insight for middles to pair with her.

    Since Ezri is unisex, more unusual and cutesy/spunky, we'd...

    I would stay away from one-syllable middles, but other than that, your options are pretty open! Middle choices depend so much on surname, background, region, etc. that it's hard to get unguided...

    Agreed :) I think he gets painted with a bit narrower brush on the show, perhaps that's why, but I do think his conflict comes across even there.

    Regardless though, I don't tend to discount names...
