    I'm definitely feeling Moss. It's a very masculine botanical name that's surprisingly not a tree name (Birch, Ash, etc) that's more common for boys. You could also see it as a last name turned...

    August Charles > August Henry. With a 2 then 1 syllable count is better than the monotone 2-2 count. It would be much worse with another 2 syllable like August Henry Johnson. I hope your last name...

    SBO isn't bad while SOB is definitely a deal-breaker. Why don't you select another monogram style that uses the first, middle, and then surname in that order?

    I have a cousin named Cecily (which is my preferred spelling) whose father was Cecil but went by Kit. There are a lot of literary allusions to it. Since has been used only sparingly in America, I...

    Besides the Biblical version, my first memorable encounter with Gideon was MTV vj Gideon Yago. He was big in the late 90s/early 2000s and the epitome of geek chic. I'm dating myself.

    Michelle is definitely a mom name these days. I do like the idea of Maude and Eve. With a (first name) + Jessica + Ashdown, I'd lean more toward a 1 syllable name to get the ideal varying syllable...

    I'd go with Oakley Kate since the varying syllable count (unlike Oakley Scarlett) and obvious feminine name (not like Oakley Jay) would definitely identify her as a girl. My choice for a boy would...

    Soren - Interesting and unique
