Thank you so much, everyone!
Calvin Job was born at 12:24am on February 14! We didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl....what a precious Valentine's Day surprise!
Both his first and middle name were on my (long) list...

You guys are killing me with the Ophelia love! Maybe if/when we see a little girl (we don't know the sex), my husband will be more open to putting the name to the face! Right now he says it's...

@jtucker Ooh I love Clara Magdalene!

@mrs_alton_yelchin1990 Thanks for your suggestions! Of the names you listed, my favorites are Ophelia Ruth, Alexandra Blair, Alexandra Jane, and Abigail Louise =)
February 11th, 2014, 11:30 PM
@stlmama225 Yes Olive Abigail is really nice. I'll have to bring that one up with my husband...honestly, the reason Abigail and Alexandra are on the list is because he likes the nicknames Abby,...

@ashleyjuliette Yes the V-R transition in Olive Ruth is a little awkward for me too. Sometimes I don't know if I'm just a dunce at pronouncing things, or if it's a legitimate problem! Since our...

@opheliaflora that's so neat that you suggested Olive Matilda, as Matilda was on our "medium-long" girl's list, but was only recently cut. Never thought of it as a middle!

@apollonia, those are GORGEOUS combos, wow! I love your user name too =)
I especially love Jane Alexandra, there is something so perfect about that.
Do you think Olive Magdalene is a little...

I love Ophelia too!! But my husband says it's solidly in place no. 3, after Ruth (Olive is our unanimous no. 1). Thanks for bringing Blythe up from my signature...it really is a beautiful middle...

Here are our top 10 girls' names:
Olive (Olivia is not an optional alternative)
Louise (Louisa is an alternative, but Louise has more impact because it is a family name)

I actually do know a "boy" named "Loren," although he's my age (30-ish)!

Thanks for the great suggestions, everyone!

I'm looking for girls' names that have boy-ish nicknames, or boy names that are more girl-ish. For example,

Thanks for your suggestions, @lily79! I hadn't thought of Noah before, but I do like the connections between Noah and the olive branch! 2 concerns: 1) is it getting too popular? and 2) our last...

Thanks for your suggestions, @rkrd! We already have a family member named Arielle (but not one that I would want to honor with a name...nothing against her, she's extended step family so we're not...
February 2nd, 2014, 09:18 AM
Yeah I know what you mean about not trying to convince myself, but on the other hand...I'm sort of feeling like I should "give" this one to my husband. He hasn't asked for much during...
February 2nd, 2014, 09:11 AM
What a great suggestion!
February 2nd, 2014, 09:10 AM
Ooh I do love Ophelia Louise, and Remy Ezekiel/Remy Morgan are great combos as well! I agree family names are always a plus. I'm sure I would be more open to Ezekiel if it was...

Thank you @katieydenberg! Aurielle is too close to two friend's daughters's names (Aurora and Aurelia) and a family member's name (Arielle). I don't know why Ariel feels "removed" enough, but it...
January 31st, 2014, 03:16 AM
We don't know the sex of the baby, so we need to think of names for both!
Olive--our top pick; middle would probably be Louise (family name)
Louise--I like this as a first as well, not...
It's a good name. As mentioned above it is pronounceable and recognizable, and while still being unique. Go for it! Paige works nicely as a middle as well.
I really like Agnes as a first name! Maeve is an obvious fit with Finian--although maybe a little too obvious? Josephine fits really well too. So I would vote Agnes Maeve or Agnes Josephine. She...
Our top girl's choice is Olive Louise. However, I'm starting to really love Louise as an alternate first name. It's a cool name in and of itself, and it also has a lot of family connections for us...

Wow I LOVE your sibset. Phillip is a nice name, and I do think human trumps puppy (we currently have Morgan as a top contender, even though it is also my parents' cat who died in a cardboard box 30...
