I also wanted to add that if you are looking to a name site for factual information, then you may be in the wrong place. Even the authors of this site do not cite their information and basically present the names on a basis of opinion rather than fact. There are other sites that are more fact based in etymology and such that you should try looking to for information.
As for opinions stated as facts on the boards - take it at face value and if you don't buy it then move on and don't worry about it. This is not the place to get your panties in a bunch over if someone isn't able (or willing to go through the trouble of) proving every tiny claim they make. If this were an actual forum BASED on debate and discussion, I could see your point, but it's not. It's a name site for people who have an interest in names and pregnant women to ask for opinions on what to name their babies.

Flick, I am sorry if you thought this was directed at you. It was not intended. Yes, I did post it after requesting a citation/source from you but, it was really meant as a general thought/plea/rant thing and not in anyway intended as a personal attack against a single person. That's not my style. I sincerely apologize that you perceived it to be aimed at you.
You are right NB is an opinion site, and I do look other places for more supported information.
I guess I just wish that we argued less and shared resources more. I figured this could be one way to be less personal on controversial topics and simultaneously be helpful to others. But your right, I am probably am asking for too much for an opinion site.Expecting Our First.....
DH doesn't want to discuss names until
we know if it's a boy or girl. GRRRRR ARGH!
