I voted for Griffin. I am a fan of names that fall in the 200-400 range in popularity. It generally means they are familiar to most people you meet, but aren't so widely used that you'll be running...

^^ Yes, if you decide to sit down with her or just respond honestly in the moment, make sure to frame it as "When you say X, it makes me feel Y." Because it really isn't about the specific...

The way this "friend" is expressing herself is the problem, not your differences in parenting style. If you think she'd be open to an honest conversation where you tell her how her words are making...
I like it, but wouldn't think "Lyle" at first, or even second guess. I have a friend from another forum who named her daughter this (pronounced Lay-elle, I believe), but fwiw, I always assumed the...
I don't have strong feelings about it either way, but I think you could easily get the nickname Lan from the spelling if not the actual pronunciation.
Hugs, mama. It kind of sounds like maybe you're not done, and that's okay (in terms of the year thing, it's beneficial to keep going if both you and baby want to), but you feel like baby is? Lots of...
I think Hawthorne is really nice, as is Bartholomew in theory... but seems a bit much when combined with a B last name.
Martin would be my top choice, but I'm biased as it's my 17 month old's...
I would 100% name my son Tiberius before giving him the combo Ryker Vickers. I don't hate Ryker, but that combo is just too much.
If he's open to some other Trek names, that's fantastic.

I think Ariana and Magnus make fabulous sibling names! And my personal feeling is that you should take Riley out of future-daughter play by naming your boy Magnus Riley. Riley tones down the...
I love it. Actually, it would probably be tops of my list if it wasn't my husband's nephew's middle name. I love nicknames Rafa/Rapha and Rafi.
I'm in the Midwest and pronounce it Rah-fee-ehl, if...
Sorry to hear about the chemical, babylove. I hope you get the stickiest of beans very soon, and that your husband's work situation/househunting settles down soon.
I'm not great at keeping up...
Congrats northern lights and maureenmce!
babylove, my son was born mid-February of 14, so he'll be around a month shy of 2 when baby #3 is born.

Mazarine for a girl, Bonaventure for a boy.
Hey babylove, I'm here from the Jan-Mar 14 thread, too. Cautiously expecting mid-late January '16. Not very sure about dates, as my cycles have been wonky since resuming PP. I probably won't find out...
I apologize for the super delayed response - getting time to post has been difficult! Both of you brought up some old favorites that I'd forgotten about, or written off as getting too trendy/popular...
I think we're all set for a girl name, but DH and I are not really on the same page for boys. He likes Chance or Vance, and they both feel way outside the vibe I like. We agreed on the nickname Van,...
The only boy name we've agreed on thus far is the nickname "Van". DH is not a fan of longtime favorite Sylvan, nor mashup possibilities like Victor/Vincent Anderson. Neither of us are big on Evan,...
I've got Victor Anderson on my shirt list, nn Van. Something to think about ;)

Clearly I checked out of NB for waaaay too long. Congrats, friend!
Standouts to me are Iselda, Corisande, Helena, and the Rosa names (mostly because I love Rosa as a nn). I'll be thinking about...
I prefer Eisley, for pronunciation reasons, it just seems more intuitive to me. There are probably more people who will recognize the Star Wars and band reference than the comic one. Truthfully,...
I just love Magnolia, and it sounds like a great fit with Graham and your criteria. I don't actually know anyone with the name, but I think Nola would be the spunkiest nickname option out of the...
I haven't checked in on NB for a while, but saw this pop up and just wanted to send a heartfelt congratulations, Emma! Crossing all the things for a happy, enjoyable pregnancy :)
I like Cyrus, Crispin, Ives, and Tobias quite a bit for you. Other suggestions:
Felicity, Annika, & Boaz
Felicity, Annika, & Edgar
Felicity, Annika, & Hugh/Hugo
Felicity, Annika, & Victor
