a brother for Remy !
ever since I was little I've loved names and dreamt about naming my children, but now that I have the opportunity it's so hard! i've been looking for opinions on my future sons name, I'm just about seven months along now, and would love for your help! i have a four year old daughter, Remy Grace already and am looking for something that flows nicely with her name, but not matchy-matchy at all.
I love the name Lane, but my husband doesn't like it for his first name, although he's agreed to let me keep it for the middle name. basically i have three choices right now: Rylan Lane, Elliot Lane or Cohen Lane, but I haven't been able to settle on one! with my daughter it was much easier and i wasn't himming and hawing like i am now! so any help/suggestions would be appreciated! thank you!

Re: a brother for Remy !
From your choices, I like Elliot Lane the most. I think it's very handsome. :-)
A Cohen is a Jewish priest and a common Jewish last name (such as Goldberg or Schwartz), and some (not all) Jewish people may be offended or taken aback by its use as a first name, especially on a non-Jewish baby.
If you follow this link and go to (I think) the 5th post down, I answered Rollo's question about Cohen, and included Pam's in depth thoughts on the name: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/viewto...03&hilit=cohen
Of course, you need to choose the name that's right for you, but I thought I'd mention Cohen's background.
Some modern names that may appeal to you:
Sawyer (I think Lane sounds great with a longer first name, though)
Names more along the lines of Elliot:
Good luck! :-)
