    So, someone (alzora I believe, ) suggested this name on my combo thread and it reminded me how much I love it. It had totally slipped my mind and had been pushed on the back burner because my husband didn't like it much. BUT, I brought it up to him today and he acted like he never disliked it (men...) and said he would definitely consider it.

    For those who don't know, I'm trying to find a way to subtly honor my father who passed away with the next baby's name. He loved the water and boats, and there is also a Grateful Dead song called "Lost Sailor" that always makes me think of him. So, what are your thoughts on the name Sailor?

    I LOVE it. Personally I think it's more middle name worthy, but it really is amazing.

    I originally didn't like it, but now I think it would be a super sweet name for a boy because of this blogger I follow (bleu bird blog) who has a handsome and smiley baby boy named Sailor Rhodes. I'm not sure I could see it on a girl, but I typically can't see Rowan on a girl either, so I suppose it fits with your style well. A lovely, more feminine middle name could balance out the masculinity of Sailor, I suppose!

    One of the characters (? Not sure... he's dead, but that is not a spoiler, no worries) of my favourite books is called Sailor. But he was a man. This was my first brush with it as a name, and so I see it as being very masculine.

    I wouldn't have Rowan and Sailor together. Rowan on its own is just that- Rowan. When you put it with Sailor, all I can see/ think/ hear is "rowin' and sailor". I think it would work as a middle name, though, as it makes the wordiness a lot less noticeable.

    I'm really sorry for your loss.

    I think Sailor is great. For a boy or girl? I think it works for both.

    Hehe, my husband does the same! Men...

    EDIT: I looked at your combo thread and see it's for a girl. I think Christy Brinkley's daughter is named Sailor. I see you're considering Cordelia as well, which means "from the sea", which could be a way of honouring your father, too. There's a number of names with watery meanings, which you might like.
