How could I forget these?!

Rose as a fn from Doctor Who/nn Rosie from We Bought a Zoo.

Boys: Lucian, Alexander, Liam

Edmund- my grade 3 teacher read us The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and that was when I fell in love with Edmund.

Cedric- Harry Potter, I can't lie.
Ephraim- I first heard this on the WB show Everwood. They spelled it differently, but I love the name!
