    Thanks, ladies!

    @emsky - I don't know if Leopold fits or not, haha, but it's been on my radar for years and I really love it! It's my favorite way to Leo. Besides, I think it could fit in well with some of these, like Everett and Jack (especially with the nn Leo) and maybe even Samuel. I think you're probably right about the top 15--and I even have two I've been seriously thinking of adding (Audrey and Zara), but having a top 15 always seems so unruly and unmanageable! I can't seem to ever handle more than a top 13, haha. It's a weird number, but at least there's the same number for each gender.

    I think Silas is out... I like it, and I was REALLY crushing on it the other night, but my brother adores Duck Dynasty, and I am not really sure I could go there. I agree that Calvin and Emerson are probably too close to Caleb and Grayson, too, so I feel like I should nix them. I just keep coming back to them, but they never seem to measure up to Caleb and Grayson. Le sigh.

    I'm tossing around Grant quite seriously, too--I've fallen for it pretty massively in the past couple weeks (months?) and it's just so lovely, imo. I'm just not sure if I prefer it up front or as a middle? It probably helps that I knew a Grant in high school who wore it so incredibly well. Grant, Grant, Grant. Le sigh. I just don't know where to put him.

But Ronan is lovely too, reminds me of Ronan Keating ("When You Say Nothing At All" was the song of my childhood) Anyway, good luck, I've made my feelings clear at least
    I sort of love that, if that's legitimate! I'm not Catholic by any means but I can appreciate the spreading of Christianity from wherever it stems, and I do have some Irish ancestry. I, too, really love Declan's meaning. I just never seem to like it paired with anything (not in a combo, not as a sibling)... I don't know. I just find it hard to work with, so it usually gets dropped. I do love it, though, and have tossed around Declan Jude, Declan Avery, Declan Hugo, and Declan Samuel in the past.

    At this point, Grant, Declan, and Leopold are the top contenders.

    Audrey and Zara are two of my faves too!
