    Ugh!! My cousin just used MY name on her new baby girl! Now what!!!

    A few weeks ago I posted a thread about the name Avery Jackson Mitchell for our baby boy. After the positive feedback and sitting on the name for a few weeks we really started to LOVE the name and thought it was IT. Now my cousin just had a baby girl on Saturday and named her Avery! (In her defense, we never talked about names...didn't think it was going to be an issue since we were having different genders.) So now what do we do?!?!? We have had the hardest time coming up with a name and now I'm devastated!!
    My husband likes the name Jackson but I think it's too popular. I did agree to use it for a middle name if it ends up flowing with a first. We also kinda like Casey but I'm still not sold. We tend to lean more towards 2 syllable, country/cowboy names. I'm literally in tears overhere...please help, we only have 1 month to go!!!!

    Oh, no! What are the odds? I'm sorry, I feel for you completely! If I thought I would be getting a little Avery, I would be in tears, too. It's so handsome. I'm not even sure what to suggest; I just had to say I feel with you! I like the suggestion of Bailey--it's the one other unisex name I love, and I think a cowboy would wear it pretty well. What about:

    Zane
    Grayson
    Louie/Louis/Lewis
    Henry (or Hank?)
    Kieran
    Seth
    Nicholas
    Wyatt
    Ashton/Ash
    Lucas/Luke
    Isaac

    Good luck!
