Any suggestions on a middle name for Rachel? (We are looking for a middle name that we simply like the sound of, and that doesn't need to bear any special significance to us.)
Our last name starts...
We are expecting #4, and our top girl choice is Emily (perhaps to be shortened from time to time to Em).
Our oldest is Lillian, but goes by Lily. We then have 2 boys.
Would the fact that we...

Poll: Would you spell it "Reed" or Reid"?
We like strong boy names. (We have a Brock and a Troy.)
We are trying to come up with a name to go with our boys. Ideally, it'd be a one syllable name that is strong-sounding. It can't start with...

We really like the name Drew... just Drew, not Andrew.
If you heard the name Drew, would you assume it's a nn for Andrew? Or is Drew now common enough as a standalone?
Also, just realising that...

I'm trying to find a middle name that would go well with Grace. Any ideas? I'm looking for:
- 3 or more syllables
- doesn't start with G, H, or S sound
- has stress on second syllable

I'm looking for 4-syllable names with stress on the 2nd syllable, that start with a vowel. Any ideas?
I can think of:

Haha, not more ideas! ;) Rebecca was on our short list. Why are girl names so difficult?! Knowing our luck, this one will be a boy.

Only a few weeks out and still I am torn between Emily and Rachel.
Emily would likely go by Emmy (to us, anyway).
If Emily, the middle name would be Grace.
I really like Rachel, but the only...

Our little one will arrive in a matter of weeks and we still haven’t finalized a girl name! (Although we don’t know the gender so this worry could be all for nothing…)
We already have a daughter...

We already have a Lillian who goes by Lily.
If it were you, and your top pick was Emily (nn Emmy) would you find something else because you think the names are too similar?
Emily (Emmy) is our...
We're down to a matter of weeks and are really struggling with a girl name! Above are the only ones at this point my husband will consider- I can't say I love them all (but likely with time I can be...

So right now I'm probably most torn between Rachel and Emily. Rachel could grow on me but I don't just LOVE it. Emily though, I love how it sounds and looks. (Probably why I also like Lillian/ Lily!)...

Rachel... interesting. To be honest these are my DH's top picks as we can't seem to agree on anything, and I'm thinking one will grow on me.
I probably like Emily best but feel it's too popular...

We *may* have narrowed our girl name list down to these 4 names. Which would you choose, given that we already have a Lillian (who goes by Lily) and that our last name sounds like Hoffmen?
My DH's sister is Emma, so that's out. I like Emilie, but my DH worries it would just be misspelled as Amelie all the time. Unfortunately I don't love Emmeline- it feels made up to me.
Poll: Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks for the feedback!
Poll: Vote: Emily or Erica?
Emily and Erica are in our top picks for a girl name. We have a Lillian who goes by Lily. "Emily" would likely be nicknamed "Em," but I love Emily so would want to use that too. I worry though Emily...
When you hear the name Grace, do you automatically make religious associations to it?
We really like the name but are in no way religious- we like it simply for the sound of the name. Is it so...

Thank you for so many great suggestions!
Our Lillian goes by Lily. Is Emily too similar, even if she was always referred to as Em?
We're looking for a boy's name to go with Troy. We like 1 syllable first names and three syllable middle names. So, for example, Brock Washington.

We're looking for a name to go with our girl Lillian. We really like 3 syllable first names for girls and one syllable middle names. We tend to lean towards more classical names like Lillian.
Thanks for all the feedback. I love the name Emily and the nickname Em, but don't like how popular Emily is. Sigh... back to the drawing board!
We like the name Emily Grace for a girl... but is Emily way overused now? Do you know many little girls with that name?
We would also refer to her as Em and rarely actually Emily. We have a...
What are your thoughts on the name Brock Wallace?
Would what Brock rhymes with matter much to you?
Also, what do you think of the flow of Brock with Houghman? So Brock Houghman ("hoff-man")?...
