    Great lists, thanks! And a few crossovers with what I've been throwing out for my husband too. I hadn't thought to combine Michael and Arlene, and Micheline is appealing. And you added a couple of...

    Thanks for the input! I'm looking at short names too but some just feel like filler. And I did consider Jane on it's own but Vanessa Jane is very close to a student I had who was called to the office...
  3. Middle names with meaning... Vanessa ___?

    20 weeks and the ultrasound says.... It's a girl!

    My husband suggested the name Vanessa a few weeks ago and though it wasn't really on my radar it fits my criteria. I like that it's feminine and...

    My brother is a Jon (full name Jonathan) so I prefer the simpler Jon spelling. He's never really gone by Jonny but people do use it. As for whether Jonny and June is too much, it depends on the kids....

    To me Kirby is both a pink blob that eats everything, as well as the trusty vacuum cleaner I've had for 25 years.

    Thoughts on Vanessa

    We're expecting baby #2 this fall and naturally have had a hard time agreeing on a name. Much like our taste in music, my taste runs to the more classic and rare, while my husband prefers the hits of...

    I picked my favourites before reading the post. I'm on the fence about Giulia... I feel like it might be hard to wear without Italian heritage. If you pronounce it the same as Julia, it doesn't solve...

    I love your taste in names and completely understand why it would take so long to land on "the one" the first time around! If I could get my husband to like even *one* of these names I'd be happy.
