The names in this thread are so varied! Makes me feel better about potentially using pretty popular names.

My dad had this phrase that used to drive me crazy when I was younger. Any time we would spill, break something, etc. and say "I didn't try to!" he would respond with "Well next time try not to." I...

@lawsonhaley: From my research, it seems like the pronunciation of Anna is split pretty much down the middle in terms of the languages that pronounce it "ANN-uh" versus "AHN-uh." The reason that it's...

I agree with this. I understand that people pronounce names differently depending on accent (in my area especially -- people pronounce the name Cheryl as "shirrll" whereas I would say "share-ull"),...
If you don't absolutely love any of your combos, maybe you'd like some of these alternatives?
Harlow Cecilia (Harlow and Brent both have "hill" in the meaning)
This is exactly what I envision, too! My baby niece is named Lucy, and we can already tell she's going to be a handful. :)
Both of your combos are lovely. I would alter them to Lily Madeleine and...
Cassandra has never been a personal favorite of mine, but I like that it's a classic, and I love the nn Cassie, which to me is much more approachable.
I also love the suggestion of Cassandra...

My parents went with a Biblical first name, family middle name theme:
I think they all go well together, and I like that they're all...
Thanks for all of the congrats. :)
I did not know that Sephiroth was a villain in an RPG haha. I tried to look it up, and it seemed like it was a fairly obscure Hebrew name.

I usually visit the site on my phone, and I too have been very frustrated with the ads. I don't mind the occasional ad, but 2-3 per page, every page, is too much. Especially when I scroll down and...

I'm not exactly sure what you're going for when you say "dark," but maybe you'd like some of these unisex names?
I'm basing this information off of the school that I went to in the eastern US (it was Christian, but not Catholic). At my school, they recommended taking 15-17 credits per semester, which averages...
The hospital I had my son at posts birth announcements on their website, so I thought it would be fun to compile a list of all of the babies born there in June and July. Most of them are pretty...
@darcydeacon and shanmarie2: Thanks! It took us quite a while to decide on the combo, but we love it. :)
I like the suggestions of George, Maxwell, Ambrose, William, and Malcolm, although at the...
I'd suggest getting a pamphlet or looking online to see what classes your local gym offer, then looking through them together to see what might interest both of you. I know at least at my YMCA they...
Since my son was born (and because I have nothing else to do in between feedings!), I've been on the hunt for a new boy combo. I like names that have an air of vintage charm, but that are still...
Quentin Charles was born July 4, 2014, our little firecracker :)
We are all doing well!
@tararyaz: That does sound kind of scary. From what I've read though, it sounds like she wasn't doing it correctly. If that was happening, I think it should have been in smaller pieces.
Thanks everyone for the info! I really value hearing firsthand experiences.
@tk and tarynkay: It seems like avocado is a popular first choice! I might have to try that
@luciad: It's really...
I searched for a thread on this but didn't find one, so I thought I'd start one! I've done a decent amount of research on BLW and it seems like the best way for us to go. I would love to hear about...
@ikfly: I had been casually considering it! Malcolm Reid sounds good to me :)
@tarynkay: Thanks for the info! I did read that the insert is a little warm, so seeing as how the baby is due the end of June, I'll probably be looking up the DIY version!
I am pregnant with our first now, so I don't have any experience yet, but what I've read is steering me towards an organic Ergo with an infant insert. I don't think I'd enjoy fiddling with a wrap,...
@stephykneejo: I've been really spazzy about NB for the past few months, so I just saw your comment. The school is not in the inner city, and yes the names I listed were naturally the most "out...
It made me laugh that some of you pictured one-syllable Charles with a southern accent, because as I was posting this I was thinking, "I hope they don't think I say it like...
