    My husband and I are strongly considering Elizabeth for our third child (if it's a girl)...but our last name is also in Pride and Prejudice, haha. I don't know if that's a bad idea or not.

    I've...

    Overall, I love your list!

    Everett: Love this name. Haven't met a young Everett, and would love to hear it used.
    Bennett: This is my last name, actually...I like it, though, because it's an...

    I've been vaguely interested in names since my younger sister was born. I was eleven, and my parents asked me and my brothers to help, so they gave us a copy of "Beyond Jennifer and Jason" to look...

    Ah, no offense intended! It's just that it feels dated/trendy and just a weird choice for 2012. If it's a family name, I don't mind it at all!

    Yeah, facebook is a lifesaver for that reason....

    Oh god, ever since I (recently) discovered my interest in names, I'm the absolute worst when it comes to judging people's choices. I never know what to say to hide my disappointment, but I'm horrible...

    Hey. There's no reason to be classist. These lists are pretty awful, but let's not make unfair judgments about the OP's socioeconomic status or her education level. Okay?

    I do hope this person...

    Hali seems like a girls' name to me, and I'm kind of confused about it/its pronunciation. But I really like the sentiment. Can you try to incorporate it into the middle name?

    My number one choice...

    Yep, that'd be the one. I guess it's not a dealbreaker, it's just that she'd always have adults making "clever" jokes about finding Mr. Darcy...I don't know.

    The good thing about using either...

    Eliza and/or Elizabeth

    I'm really starting to love both of these names, but I have a couple questions for you guys because my husband says he doesn't care which one we use (if we even go this route).

    Which one do you...

    Agreed...we're struggling with a girls' name for our third right now, and it's not getting any easier with time. I love your son's name, though! So cool.

    Ariana: It's a lovely name, but it seems a...

    Now that I work in an elementary school, popularity kind of does bother me. I've met a bunch of kids with my kids' names, and after awhile it seems almost ridiculous. I love my kids' names very much,...

    Juniper Lux is a great set of middle names. Don't even worry about using both (I don't like the hyphen personally) when your older child only has one. It's not a big deal. Go for it!

    My last name has been mentioned a couple times on this thread, haha. It's a good name. I'd probably even consider it if I hadn't grown up with the name.

    I'm not generally a fan of the name...

    Scarlett. I'd do anything to name a future daughter Scarlett, but it sounds terrible with my last name and my husband thinks it sounds trashy. :( I think the nickname Scar is adorable.

    K names and J names (with the exception of Julia and Juliet for girls, and Jude for boys) just don't do it for me.

    Alright, I'm done with this. It's MLK day, for god's sake. Name your white kids whatever you want.

    Haha, not even going to try. I've heard this all before and it's so tired. All I'll say is this: hating someone's whiteness is different from hating an oppressed minority. Hating someone for their...

    Racism against white people isn't a thing. It's just not. Not going to argue about it any further on a public message board (feel free to message me if you wish).

    I'm not trying to say that white...

    Honestly, I just think of that actor Michael Cera. I pronounce that name completely different from Sara/Sarah. More like "serr-ah" vs. "sair-uh." I don't think there's anything wrong with using Cera...

    Arabella Lily looks great, but I find it to be a bit of a tongue-twister, no? Too many L's.

    I'm going to have to second the suggestion of Arabella Lillian Rose. So pretty. Rose and Cruise don't...

    My husband and I are huge Rangers fans...that's my biggest association with the name, and I think it's pretty cool but I wouldn't use it for anything but a middle name. It's a little out there.
