    Semi-Back to the Drawing Board

    Okay, so, about halfway through each pregnancy, we think we have names picked out, and then we try living with our choices for a little bit, and wind up throwing one or more out after all (I guess we avoid some name regret that way). It's that time, so we need some help narrowing down and filling in the blanks:

    _____ Gabriel
    Marianne _____

    Boys in our family use their middle names for everyday. Marianne would be nn Polly. Here's what we have:

    Adrian
    Damian
    Dillon
    Elliott
    Lucas
    Nolan
    Owen
    Sebastian

    Alexandra
    Cassandra
    Cecilia
    Emma
    Nathalie
    Sofia
    Victoria

    Berries, rate our names and help us out please!

    My husband thought Polly was too insubstantial for a full name, so we went hunting for a name for the birth certificate. I knew Polly was a nickname for Mary, and we had previously liked Marianne, so we thought it would work...

    I like the following combos for you for a boy:

    Charles Gabriel
    Lucas Gabriel
    Nolan Gabriel
    Owen Gabriel

    Some of the others sounds too modern/trendy with the names you already have.

    For a girl I think Marianne Ruth has the best flow. But the others all work.

    So for everyday names you already have Sara, Catherine (does Catherine have a nn?), Matthias (does he go by that in full?)? And then you'd add Polly or Gabriel (Gabe?) to the mix?

    Good luck!

    Thanks! Boys are hard. Based on your suggestions about style, I crossed off Blake and added Adrian, which we had considered, but I'm liking it more and more. I also crossed off Charles, after an obstinate grandmother insisted that she WOULD call him Chuck; we didn't like it enough to battle over. And Elliott is the product of DH wanting a something longer than my suggested Eli that was not super Old Testament.

    In answer to your other question, our "call names" are Sara, Kit, and Matthias. Never Matt, originally because my sister has a Matthew, although he wound up being Pat anyway. So yes, we are adding Polly or Gabe to those
