I'm expecting two little ones later this month. One boy, one girl.
We have the girl's name picked out and both of us love it. It's the boy's name that giving us difficulty. First, because my husband practically refuses to use any name that he knows of someone with that name. Second, since the girl's name it a little out there (or at least very uncommon) I want the boy's name to be more grounded (we don't want something common now but maybe it was popular at one point). Also our last name could be a first name, so the whole last name as a first name trend is to be avoided.
So the girl's name is Neve.
And the front runner for the boy's name is Owen.
Other names I like but have been ruled out; Ethan, Ian, Jack, Dale.
