I haven't been around a ton lately, so congrats on your pregnancy! Your experience with this one sounds like mine with my Feb'14 guy. Now, this pregnancy has been nearly identical to the one with my...

My kiddos both gained the majority of their first year's weight in the first 4 months. My son was 22 lbs at 4 months, and is now 28 lbs at 20 months. Granted, he's still a good size, but it is my...
If I'm honest, I pouted a bit when Beyoncé's baby was announced. However, now that my daughter is old enough to know what's up, she was INSANELY thrilled to meet an Ivy a year or so older than her. I...
Congrats! And wow on the car birth - sounds like some ride :)
I'm really liking your son's name. Cedar is unexpected and yet not really "out there". It doesn't hurt that cedar is basically my...
How about a little twist on Rose? I think Rosa Nell would be insanely cute :)
I know, old thread is old.
As someone who has an Ivy born in 2011 just a few months before Beyoncé's, I can tell you it's really not that bad. I hear the name so much on name boards, but we've...
I think my comment on the girls got eaten! At any rate, I really like all of your list for girls. My favorite is Mabel, and I think it sounds fantastic with Harper. Maeve would be a close second, and...
Congrats, mama! Mabel is one of my favorites :) Hope your girls keep sleeping like a dream for you while you recover!
I vote for Griffin!
As for Cohen - it's a nice enough sounding name. I'd gently suggest googling "baby name Cohen controversy" before using it.

^^LOVE pp's suggestion of Dinah with your kids. I have a friend that recently named her kiddo Pauline with a P middle name and baby's nickname is Pippi. I think...
I really like Margot and Olive as twins. Super cute.
My other favorites would be:
Clio & Olive
Clio & Margot

I really like Drake and Skandar as brothers :) Caedmon (spelled this way) would be my top pick from your list, with Thorin as a backup.
I don't find it problematic. It's not my style, but I get the appeal, and the nicknames are great. I wouldn't raise my eyebrow at a little Rembrandt, but I'd probably (secretly) think his parents...
I'm running into this. I have a Martin, and one of my two favorites for this one (if it's a boy) is Arthur. We don't call our Martin "Marty", but there's always the possibility of a Marty and Arty...
Hmm. I feel like it really just depends on which celebrities you like. Are there lots that you've already ruled out? Are you only naming after celebs that are no longer living? Movie stars only?
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.
