Baby B needs a name...
We are expecting in February so that means we've gotten more serious about names. DH thinks we still have "time" but I want to "sit" on our top list for a while and give it time to settle. I find a lot of names I've loved eventually faded from my heart, but some stuck around. I am having troubles connecting with some boy names, the only exception is my grandfather's name but we want family permission first and I am not sure about using a name that is already so dear to me. I don't want an overly popular or trendy name, but a name that has done well over time is fine. DH doesn't want a word name... unfortunately... but you will see some anyways haha. Here is my update list. If you recognize a style o theme that can help me please point it out! We are not set on only these names, I am very open to more options. Our plan is not to pick THE NAME before the birth. We will pick the name we can agree on most, his top favorite and my top favorite and then decide after the baby is born. I would also love a February themed name but I am not crazy about any of the ones I've seen so far. At most I would use Amour as a mn because it means love in french (I am french Canadian), and is part of my maiden name.
Emerence nn Emmy
Noella nn Noah
Millicent (DH really doesn't like this one)
Gloria nn Glow
Zinnia (a friend said it's too exotic for us)
Arianne (DH did like it but is finding it too similar to aryan, and so after years of living the name it is slipping)
Rohan (preferred spelling, also love that Bob Marley named his son this, I am a HUGE Bob Marley fan)
Ambrose (losing love for it, seems too posh)
Leopold nn Leo
Edmond nn Eddie (this is grandpa's name, he was called Ed)
Leander (losing love for it as well, seems bland)
Ozias nn OzzyMama to Arden Skye (02/2013)

I love your boys names, especially Leopold, Ambrose, Eamon and Edmond. I think Rohan is great, but on a boy, if your going to use it for a girl, go with the nature spelling, Rowan.
I love Zinnia, Noella, Gloria and Faye from your girls list - you seem to like things that are a little offbeat / vintage but still recognizable.

I love Noelle from your girls list. The rest aren't my style. My favorite from your boys is Edmond.
Here are some February themed names:
Violet- Birth month flower
Primrose- Birth month flower
Amethyst- birth stone
Freya- Goddess of love
Rome- romantic destination or Romeo
Chad- of great love
Hope that helps![COLOR="#EE82EE"][COLOR="#EE82EE"][COLOR="#EE82EE"][/COLOR]Two Little Girls Due Feb 23rd[COLOR="#EE82EE"][/COLOR][/COLOR]
