    Names you can't use

    So I was just lamenting the vast number of gorgeous girl names that are off the table for us due to the fact that our siblings already gave them to their children. I thought maybe if everyone shared their "off the table" names, it would give others the opportunity to use some gems that you might not be able to use. Here are mine.

    Nieces and nephews (I happen to think all of my in-laws have excellent taste in baby names!):
    Charles
    Eleanor (called Nora)
    Lydia
    Tanner
    Marcus
    Calvin
    Caroline
    Catherine
    Connor
    Jacob
    Anthea
    Neva
    Eliana
    Joy

    Names of close friends' children:

    Leila
    Josephine
    Eleanor (again!)
    Colette
    Mila
    Kiera
    Louisa
    Laura
    Liam
    Nicholas
    Thomas
    Ariella
    Emma
    Max
    Sophia
    Claire
    Ruby
    Jack
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (10), Madelyn Esther (8), Genevieve Susan (3), and Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014). TTC #5

    Boys: Everett, Sebastian, Augustus, Samuel, Abraham, Elias, Julian, Silas, Nicholas
    Girls: Bridget, Felicity, Elizabeth, Leona, Ophelia, Caroline, Aurelia, Elysia, Callista

    Your friends and family do have great taste! So far, none of our friends have really used any names we would have considered. I do love some of the names, they just wouldn't fit our sibset. My uncle and aunt, on the other hand, named my cousins some pretty amazing names we probably would have considered, but honestly they may have influenced my taste in names in the first place.

    Friends' kids:
    Eleanor (nn Nora)
    Lucy Clementine
    Lenora Clover (nn Nora)
    Magdalena (nn Lena)
    Elisabeth Adelaine (nn Lainey)
    Ava
    Persephone
    Paisley
    Lane
    Jackson
    Harrison

    Cousins' names:
    Gavin
    Maeve
    Fiona (WAY before Shrek made it familiar)
    Gillian
    Isla
