I've never been in this exact situation, but maybe it would alleviate some of the possibly sad connotations to use a variation of Holly, like Hollis? Personally, I think it would be a lovely way to...

@velvetcrush - Thank you for updating us! So glad all is going well.
I also pronounce it Oh-ber-on, just like the Oberon spelling. If the Auberon spelling causes pronunciation headaches, Oberon would be easier (although a lot of people seem turned-off by the "King of...

Oh my gosh, thank you all so much for all the responses. I'm glad that reading through them, there seems to be an equal amount if not a majority of positive reactions? I was honestly expecting it...

@emmillose - so sorry you ended up at the ER! I'm so glad you got to see baby and hear the heartbeat though. That must have been reassuring. Hang in there mama and little one!
@amess118 - my...

SO and I are expecting our first this October and as of yet we don't know the sex, but we've already started talking about names (since we both expect it will take us at least the remaining 6 months...

I agree with PP's, I think of your name choices as timeless classics before my mind goes to Biblical. George, Henry, Isaac, Arthur, et c. would all fit right in. I'm all for using names you love,...

@leadmythoughts - I thought about that. I think it would probably end up being too difficult, and she really wants to be involved so I wouldn't want to accidentally hurt her feelings by leaving her...
I knew a little boy with this middle name and thought it was incredibly handsome. I love it.
1. Would you ever go to a concert alone? Oh man, I really want to say yes because, why not? But I remembered I had the opportunity to do this and turned it down because I had no one to go with. ...

I should specify that I don't know exactly what it was that SO's mom said, just that she doesn't think we should find out in advance. She has this rumored "ability" that at some point during a...
Strongly seconded. I'm usually not this blunt, but do not use this name.
I think it's 100% ready for a comeback - I absolutely love it. I don't like Maeve as a NN but that's just because I have an irrational dislike of the name Maeve. Yes, I know, it's super similar to...

Welcome everyone :) our group is filling up, it's wonderful!
@rachelkm and daphodil - I thought we had decided to find out gender, but SO's mom is upset about it for some reason so now he's having...
We're having this trouble now that I'm actually expecting... my mom has known for years that I've been making lists of names for my future kids, so she won't. stop. asking. what we're thinking about...
Poll: Beatrice or Beatrix?
I know I've asked this before so bear with me, but I need opinions on which version you prefer - Beatrice or Beatrix? They both have pros and cons for me, and I love both for different reasons:

Welcome @daphodil, @oceandaze, & @saracita00!
@velvetcrush - I feel for you :( I was lucky enough not to get morning sickness until 7 1/2 weeks or so, but it's been rough ever since! I can't...

Rugged, outdoorsy, athletic were the first three words that sprang to mind. As a young man, I see a dude in a flannel button-down with a thick but well-groomed beard, sunglasses, and one of those...
Most definitely My-uh. Maya, Maia, and Mya/Myah are all pronounced My-uh where I'm from (mid-Atlantic/East coast USA). Miah would be pronounced like Mia.
I've never heard the pronunciation Maya,...
I think double middle names are fine - my dad, half-brother, and half-brother's two sons all have them. It's sort of a tradition on my dad's side of the family. I don't think I would continue it...
I feel like some of the pp's missed the point about this being inspired by the male character on Firefly... anyway, I get the reference and I've had this same thought. Jayne from Firefly is very...

Emily - sorry to hear your DH didn't react well to the ultrasound idea :( I have no personal experience with non-diagnostic ultrasounds (or really ultrasounds at all) since this is my first...

Welcome dannilynn and amess118 :)
Ladies, I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I've had a hard time dealing with my nausea/hormones/etc. the last couple of days and just came across...

I feel like people throw around "rules" for naming children all the time, and it's all personal preference so you can take them or leave them if you want to. For example:
1. Kids should be named...

I have to agree with a PP - Saoirse, while a really pretty name, doesn't work in the US. I'm not really sure why you'd go with the traditional spelling of one Irish name and not the other, either. ...
