    Newly pregnant and starting to work on names

    I'm excited to be expecting a baby in December. This will be my first child, and I'm over the moon. It's still early so I don't know the gender yet, but am working on a list for both genders. I know I have a while to work on the name, but I would like to have a solid list of names to choose from at the hospital once I've met baby. Here is what I have so far:

    Girl names:

    Ardis Emmeline
    June Lorraine
    Louella Nadine
    Evan Anjuli
    Lena Genevieve

    Boy names:

    Desmond Douglas (Douglas is the name of my husband's uncle/godfather)

    Desmond Earl (earl is my husbands middle name)

    Nigel Evan

    I also love Elliot, Dominic, Micah, Clyde but do not have middle names for these.

    I would love any suggestions for names for either list!

    I just have to say I love the name Desmond! I know you will have lots of time to ponder middle names and other options, but I wanted to express my support for that name! Also, from your girl list I really like Lena Genevieve.

    Good Luck! I will try to think of more!

    You have some interesting combinations and good names to work with here!

    Ardis Emmeline: Ardis is not my favorite, but I do like this combination; alternatives: Avis Emmeline, Arden Emilia, Ardis Evelyn, Ardis Lorraine, Ardis Genevieve
    June Lorraine: I like both names but don't think the flow is good with the N endings on both; alternatives: June Lydia, June Rosalie, Lorena June, Junia Lorraine, Juniper Lorraine
    Louella Nadine: great combination; alternatives: Lucia Nadine, Louella Delphine, Nadia Lucy, Louisa Nadine
    Evan Anjuli: not a fan of Evan for a girl; alternatives Evangeline, Edith Anjuli, Vivian Anjuli, Violet Anjuli
    Lena Genevieve: too much E in this combo for me; alternatives: Helen(a) Genevieve, Genevieve Helen, Magdalena Eve, Lena Vivian, Lena Josephine

    Desmond Douglas or Desmond Earl: love both of these combinations with a slight edge to the second
    Nigel Evan: I think Nigel Dominic or Nigel Douglas work better

    Some combinations with your other boys names:

    Desmond Elliot, Desmond Clyde
    Dominic Nigel, Dominic Elliot, Dominic Clyde
    Micah Elliot, Micah Desmond, Micah Douglas
    Clyde Douglas, Clyde Dominic
