Thanks so much, Pam! I didn't imagine I would be so lucky as to get a name expert's opinion on my finally-final list! :)
I would love to take a stab at a guest post! What an honor! Should I draft...

We are 99% convinced to go with Eden/Edie. Thank you berries! :)

I do understand why so many people keep hush on their chosen name, because people can be so rude! But in this case, I am HAPPY to know that my Dad would do that annoying "Anna" thing now; it annoys...

You're totally right that Anneliese covers both options, since I do love its sound. But I do slightly prefer the sound Eloise (or now Claire, after someone else mentioned it!), so if I decided to be...

I think ultimately this is where I will probably end up... because part of the reason we decided to go for it and have a baby now (as opposed to waiting another year) is because my grandma, who has...

I love Eden Claire! I wonder if we can dig up a Claire in the family tree somewhere. :)

I think a hyphenated nickname is cute on a child, though not to be used all the time, but overall, I agree with you-- I can't decide between naming after my grandma (Theresa) or choosing my favorite...

Really? I think boys names are much easier! And nursery themes too. :) with girls there just seem to be endless options, it's overwhelming! But I do think it's harder to find a more unusual boy name...

I would rather honor Theresa than Anneliese, even though I prefer the sound of Anneliese. I think it will be either Theresa or Eloise. This is so much harder than I ever imagined it...
Maxwell-- especially on girls! I probably won't have a second child but I will always pine for Maxwell!
I don't have any suggestions, other than to say I relate to your dilemma. I want to honor my grandma by using her name as my daughter's middle name, but I really don't like the sound of it. It...

The poll is making me laugh, with every name on the board getting 0-1 votes, meaning not a single frontrunner! I would love to hear your reasoning-- just like the way it sounds? Or prefer family...

We are 99% certain we will name our firstborn daughter Eden. Some berries helped me out with coming up with a middle name list the other day, and now we're trying to decide which it will be! I have...

I generally agree, especially when the names are so different (like naming a baby Margaret so you can turn around and call her Maisie)... but in this case, it's sort of a shortened version, and I...

Thanks Birdie. Eden is probably my top choice as well. I think Ann/Anne is very boring but I do love Anna, even though it has been ruined for me. And Mabel used to be the name I thought was the...

That is so funny! I knew I couldn't be alone in wondering why they couldn't have picked a classy name, like my beloved Stephanie?! ;)

What are your boys' names? That's always helpful in narrowing down names for the new little one. Maeve is my favorite from your list (and would have been on mine, but you have to have the right...

Thank you! I'm not sure it's THE name, but it is a top contender! I just find it so funny how I've done a COMPLETE 180 on it. From the worst name I've ever heard to maybe my first born's name?! ...
Love the suggestions of Eden Celeste!
I also like Eden Estelle or Eden Eloise. The double E kind of reinforces the nickname Edie. :)

I'm so glad to hear that when you saw your children, you knew that their names were right (even if there were last minute changes). This makes monogramming little baby hats very difficult! ;)
November 20th, 2014, 10:51 AM
I had my baby names picked out for years. I thought I would hear the ultrasound tech announce our first child's gender, and immediately start calling him or her by the already chosen moniker. And...

Did anyone here watch the sitcom "Mad About You"-- many moons ago-- with Helen Hunt? I was about 12 or so when that show ended with the birth of their baby girl, Mabel, and I thought it was just...
November 20th, 2014, 10:16 AM
That's a good point. My husband likes all the choices I've presented to him, but he is less enthused with some than others, and that does add to my doubt! So, this is all his fault!? ;)
November 20th, 2014, 10:15 AM
I never imagined my list would grow when the baby became a reality, but that is just what has happened! I am committed to using a family name, at least in the middle spot, but it has not been much...
