    Also immediately thought of the terrorist attack crash site. Sorry.

    I like poptart's suggestion. Sure, if you live in Texas (or he will some day) it might be/get weird. But if there's some reason Texas or the name Tex is special to you, then by all means use that...

    Totally agree with stellamaris. Cal & Theo are a good combo--both presidential, classic. I love that Theo works in many languages. And, though way before my time, Cary Grant's sparking appeal is...

    Pepere Pierson XXXXXXX. (PEP-ay, for you non-Canadian-francophones). She is adamant and tells everyone this is going to be her little brother's name. Considering she's only 3, it's better than...

    Finch reminds me of the character in the American Pie movies. I think the feedback on Ellery is interesting since there's a raging debate over in the Girl's Names forum re: a poor poster who asked...

    Also, it's true you may not page a dr. by their first name (unless you have a duplicate last name, in which case you would page Dr. Lullaby Jones), but you do always print the entire name of a judge...

    You could get to it as a nickname if you really love it. [Other] Berries are great at creating nn's. Not so much me, but as a small example, Louise/Louisa + Belle/Beatrix/whatever could be...

    Well, I guess you did ask for honest feedback. ouch. Even though it was before my time I instantly thought of Ellery Queen. Still, I think it works as a girl's name just fine--it's not a terribly...

    Welcoming the chance to get this off my chest: one class at a preschool here has a Swayze (girl), Donzee (boy), Colson (dad's name is NOT Cole, & boy), and Ellison (girl & even if she were a "son"...

    Not sure what the details are of your adoption (and not asking!!), but if relevant: would be very hard to imagine going through life bearing the name the person who "gave me up." If not relevant,...

    I think Tulane is a stretch. Same with Boston, although it is a bona fide human name as well. Berkeley is the name of many an alum's dog. Since many colleges were named for people, I've tried to...

    If Hubby picked Noah and Mathew for the first child, I suspect many of these suggestions are way too "out there" for him. I'm thinking that some winners might be those that fall in the top 200 or so...

    Cian is a bit different from the other names on your list and doesn't seem to me like it would fit that well with the fabulous names your other children have. Of your list I like Asher and Emmett...

    Thanks for your input, everyone. Again, I hope I didn't convey a judgmental tone--this was just something I was pondering. In all my "free" time. LOL. I know what you mean, too, about thinking...

    expectant moms & dads:

    Any name starting with B (initials issue) which rules out some of my favorite literary names: Byron, Bryant, Bennett, Beatrice, Beatrix, etc.
    Also I always loved Dylan for its meaning, because Bob...

    Well, I'll give this challenge a go. It's hard to find Celtic names that don't end in "an/en" or "s!" You included a "B" name, so initials must not be an issue--what about Brett? Brent? Britt?...

    So sorry to read this. :( As a small reminder, take care of yourself as well--make time to be by yourself and to do something you enjoy. You need that especially when you are nurturing so many...

    On the whole I am opposed to unique spellings--I am an English professor and take the English language seriously. With homophonic names, unique spellings seem like they are trying too hard. BUT, I...

    Any chance you'd go with a variation of Teddye to honor her? I'm thinking Theodora would go well with many of the first names you like. (esp. Winter and Arden).

    I second Byron--a huge [unusable] favorite of mine. I think it sounds wonderful with Gregory. Another favorite is Bryant (which may admittedly require constant correction--no, not Bryan, Bryant). ...

    Isn't Stryder/Strider one of Aragorn's names in LOTR? Love that. Unfortunately when I just pitched it out loud, it took my husband and a couple of his former frat brothers (now a doctor & a lawyer)...
