Whew, that was a tough choice! I read through all of the responses before I voted, just to make sure, but finally decided to go with my gut and vote for Alaric. It is undeniably one of my favorite names, and since you also had the option for Ari on there as well it sort of felt like voting for both of them since you can use that as a nn for Alaric. My second vote would definitely be for Theodore.
I think Theodore might be the best sounding option next to Cordelia and Gretchen and I also like that it is your husband's favorite choice. (I think it would be great if your husband feels a strong connection to one of the names, just in case you aren't able to be completely positive about any of them.) In all honesty, Theo seemed to be getting plently of attention on the poll so he seemed to be pretty safely represented, which is why I made my choice. I wanted to help boost Alaric's numbers as well, even though I feel that either one of those (or third choice Henry) would be a great match for his older sisters and your family. I am Very glad to hear you have been feeling a bit better. Good luck! =]

What an awesome list! Love your name style! My favorite of all the names personaly is Alaric (nn Ari or Alec) but with your girls names I love Theodore and Mathias! Honestly though you can't go wrong with any of them. I'm another who followed your gender disappointment thread but didn't comment because I couldn't think of anything to say that hadn't already been said, but my heart really went our to you! Somewhere in that thread didn't you mention really likeing Ptolemy? Due to that I really would urge you to use it. Maybe Ptolemy Theodore or Theodore Ptolemy so you get both your and hubby's favorites in one name? Gosh, you have so many awesome choises it's hard to pick just one!Top Girl names:
