Your naming rules....
Just for fun try writing a list of rules that you would use to find the perfect name and then find some names that fit. Here is my go:
1. Must be easy to pronounce.
2. Must be easy to spell.
3. Should avoid "kree8iv" spellings.
4. Should have a sort of charm.
5. Should have a good meaning.
6. Should have safe initials.
Lets to full names and say that the surname is Wooster!
Gertrude Honoria Wooster (G.H.W) "Trudy"
Roberta Elizabeth Wooster (R.E.W)
Madeline Mary Wooster (M.M.W)
Frederick Dan Wooster (F.D.W) "Fred"
Francis Wilfred Wooster (F.W.W) "Frank"
John Matthew Wooster (J.M.W)

1. The spelling and pronunciation must be possible in multiple languages.
2. They should have some historical or literary gravity, no new mash-ups.
3. They should not be overly common (I have a very common name and it bothered me) but also not immediately noticeable as strange (hope it makes sense).
4. Their should have nice meaning.

1) Pronounceable by looking at the name
2) Have a a Catholic saint's name or a variation of his/her name somewhere in the mix.
3) Should have some sort of connection to something, directly or meaning-wise (nature, literature, historical usage, virtues, etc).
4) Should be recognizable, but not extremely overused common.
5) Nickname potential would be nice, but not required.
6) Should have a good vibe to (whimsical, sporty, sleek feminine, etc).
7) First-Middle-Last name flow is preferred, but First-Last flow is a must.
8) Shouldn't have any obvious teasing potential.

1. The first names must all start with a different letter. I know how much I love both Marlowe and Miles, but you only get one.
2. If you misspell/make up the name, so help me, I will rip up that birth certificate.
3. Easily pronounceable. I want the kid to be able to say his own name ASAP.
4. Bonus points if it's got a nice, relevant meaning. (But it's not mandatory.)
