    Need help... Baby Due Jan. 15! (Update: Poll is very close!)

    So thanks for all the help over the last two weeks! As you can see above, Leo and Theodore are nearly tied... does anyone care to tell us why one is better than the other? You all seem to love Adeline! Here's the original story that started our post:
    Funny story: A friend came over with her six week old baby named Carl. Now, I have nothing against naming a son Carl, but the friend was kind of sad, saying she and her husband just could not agree on a boy's name. They had decided together they just knew it would be a girl, so they were content to argue over boy names. (She loved August, but he preferred Gus). A week after giving birth, they chose the name Carl. Now, sitting on our coach, she looked at the sweet child, and said, "I can't believe I have a baby named Carl." My wife and I are due Jan. 15, and we are in name limbo, but both agree, we don't want a Carl situation.
    We don't know the gender either. We have a three year-old boy, and his name is Elias (we call him Eli mostly).

    After narrowing a list to about 7 names for each gender, we then expanded it based on all the great help on this site! Now we have gotten it down to the last 4 girl names, and 3 boy names: Please tell us what you think of these names!

    Girl:
    Adeline / Addie
    Clementine / Emme
    Edith / Edie
    Evangeline / Evie

    Boy:
    Abraham / Abe or Bram
    Leo / No nn
    Theodore / Theo

    If you don't want to comment, we also did the poll thing too:

    Re: Need help... Baby Due Jan. 15!

    omg that is awful!!
    your friends could change his name...the baby is young enough!

    of your boys list, Leo is my favorite. Very handsome, kinda quirky, and not super popular or trendy.

    my favorites of your girl's list are Scarlett and Violet. Tessa is lovely too.
    good luck!

    Leo is adorable! Sounds great with brother Eli.

    I also love Tessa. This name also flows well with Eli.

    Best of luck!!!
