Oh, Blade, congratulations! I was afraid something was wrong and am so glad to know you and your family, including beautifully-, meaningfully-named (of course) Cassia, are all right. Cassia is a...
Dropping in to say congratulations! I'm glad all is well.
I haven't been around for a little while and find I need to get used to the new format!
Being a botanical name, Juniper should work for boys as well as girls (and in fact seems to be tagged here on NB as a unisex name.) However, it's heading up the charts for baby girls here in America,...
I really liked Hawthorn in the combo--sob--he was so good with Roland! I'd probably go for Roland Meriadoc Hawthorn if I was rearranging. Hawthorn seems to underlie Roland with all the woodsy,...
I was going to vote for Roland Peregrine Hawthorn (so DASHING!), but I can't see the knight's face in the Peregrine pic! I voted for him anyway, but also for my second favorite, Roland Artemus...

Don't panic. I just searched each of your boy names here on NB, and I would encourage you to do the same so you can look at the SSA-stat chart to see exactly how popular each one is.
I would say...

Hm, too bad. Let's see...these will probably be quite random...
Dean -- James (or is James one of your son's middles?), Robert/Robin, Glen, Geoffrey, Sean, Scot, or Roland?
Abraham -- Bram,...

I copied a list of word names once because I found it so exciting, though I wouldn't really use all of these. I'll try not to overlap too much.
I suppose I don't like Gladys because it's "old," though I try to keep an open mind. I've had this conversation with myself before, and I can't really think of any other reason to dislike it! It has...
Cillian/Killian (Irish for you, hard C/K sound for hubby)
Timothy (hm...it's a Bible name, so probably no? But it's soft and sweet while still being masculine.)
Oh, I like Wayland too. The only reason I know about Wayland Smith and Herne the Huntsman is that I've read Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising" sequence, which does a superb job of making me feel at...
Congratulations! I just love the name Colin. Colin James is a sweet and handsome combo, as I'm sure your baby boy is!

Congratulations! Hawthorne is such a handsome name, as is Sebastian. Best wishes!
And I can't resist a shout-out to your own name, Yavanna! Go Tolkien!
Thanks, everyone. I was delighted that they chose a name very much my style! I've seen a photo, and he's a cutie.

If I heard you introduce your daughter, I would probably think her name was Seren, which I don't dislike. For some reason it looks rather masculine to me, maybe because of today's many Aidens, etc. ...
I've been pen-pals with Amber since I moved out-of-state when we were eight years old. Three years ago I saw her again for the first time in fifteen years when she invited me to be a bridesmaid in...
I just hit the first-name thread! Be back later!
Yipe. After Ottilie, I honestly didn't know where to go with this. After a few minutes of blankness, I fetched my 30,000+-entry name book, "A World of Baby Names," and started combing the Greek boys'...

Aw, Samwise! I like it ever so much, especially as a middle. I don't know if there are any Tolkien names I'd actually use as firsts, because most of them are so tied to the mythology--many of them...

Aw, congratulations! What a sweet name you chose for your little blessing. Best wishes!

Oh, I like Balthazar Wolf! Congrats to you and hubby on agreeing on such a stunner! I like Caspian Eli, too; it's definitely better than Caspian Tobias, though I like Tobias better than Eli when...

I like putting together "guess lists" for my expectant friends. It's a game I play, trying to guess what they'll name the baby. Currently I have a list for the soon-to-debut baby brother of...
Beliebers? Oo that's awful. I voted for Jonas and Josiah. I didn't vote for Jonah because it's trendy and because he's not the best Biblical namesake; I didn't vote for Joseph because, even though...
I think Ragnar Ethan Skye was mine :) I've sent you a combo list or two, and I'm still bummed that your hubby didn't like Ragnar Ethan Barnaby. Oh well.
I've been thinking about Ragnar Ethan Wade,...
