    I also tend to stay away from unisex names... I've always hated my middle name for that reason and it's not even a common name for boys. One of the last names is also a common name for men, so that's another reason... Scout was a pretty rare exception and as I said, DH wasn't a fan.

    And names that remind me of animals.... Names like Sorrel tend to remind me of a horse.
    S-first name + (middle name) + M...-C...? No unisex names. And you also have that list of taken S-names.

    I'd also advise a middle name that didn't contain vowels (SAM, SUM, SIM, etc). With that longer syllable count for a hyphenated last name, I'd try to go for a 1-2-4 or 2-1-4 count. I'll throw in a few more:

    Scarlett
    Suzette
    Sandra
    Sheila
    Sonia
    Stella
    Shannon
    Sharon
    Stacy
    Sheri
    Sophie

    @basicsand: So you see my dilemma... I'm in a sea of complications here. And after having the initials S and M, having a vowel in there is a welcome distraction, as my sisters and I can all sympathize.

    @jennwarwick: I love the name Elizabeth and it goes so well with names ending in -a. But we have four or so of them already in both of our families. *sigh*

    @apollonia: I think that's why my dad likes it so much, as Savannah was his suggestion.
