    That's a good idea Ashley. We have family names, I just don't like them. I emailed DH's uncle who does geneology and these are the names he gave me:
    • Petrine (pronounced Petrina)
    • Oline (pronounced Olina)
    • Tryphena
    • Mary
    • Sarah (x2)

    None of them are REALLY my favorites. Then I went through my side of the family tree on Ancestry.com and found:
    • Jean Annie
    • Poppy Marie (my brother used Marie for my niece)
    • Leah
    • Mayme Amelia Eyline
    • Violet (my brother used this for my niece)
    • Marie Teresa
    • Ida
    • Florence
    • Ethel
    • Amey Agnes
    • Elizabeth
    • Alletta Letitia
    • Chloea Ann
    • Ruth
    • Hannah
    • Matilda

    My favorites are probably Elizabeth and Florence. Cora Florence doesn't sound great though.

    I love Elizabeth! If this had been a girl, that would have been the name I would have pushed for!

    As for myself, I like the name Mason, but, I despise it with our last name. Jack is a family name on both mine and DH sides, and I it is just a good classic name. Jonah is one we tossed around for DS, and when I mentioned it a few months ago DH immediately vetoed it. But now now all of the sudden he is considering it. I would be surprised though if we go with Jonah.

    I like Elizabeth too, and Cora Elizabeth does sound good....

    Mason is cute too! I hate it when I like a name but it doesn't go with my last name! Our last name ends in -er which is a problem.

    I find it funny how some names that I didn't think were 'old' were in fact very old. I can't remember which ones but I went back 10 generations the other day and found some names I thought were newer. DH assures me that the art of 'making up names' is a rather new phenomenon. LOL!

    You ladies have some great names!!! I like how some of you are using your ancestors names. That is how we've picked ours. Dh's great grandmothers name was Laura and I think it goes well with DD (Laina). We just can't seem to agree on a middle name. He likes Laura Lynn (after his mom's mn which is Lynnette) and I like Laura Jane (after my grandmother). Guess we still have a little time to agree!

    Personally I prefer Laura Jane because Laura Lynn almost sounds like one name...or hyphenated. Laina is a cute name too!!!!

    DH has decided he likes Cora Bristol Thoughts? I don't hate it...but it doesn't really have any meaning for us. Not a deal breaker I guess.

    I think the name Cora is lovely. Middle names are funny I think and don't always have to run well together just as long as you like it or it means something special to you.

    I'm not a huge fan of Bristol but as a MN it isn't bad and flows well with Cora. FWIW, my MN has nothing to do with anything other than that my parents loved it and I don't feel jipped or anything I think it's cute that he's actually trying to be involved with the naming process. My DH has ONE name he likes and that is all the input he has

    Yes, hubby is pretty involved in naming. He always makes me fill out the paperwork because DSD's name is miss-spelled forever because his ex let him fill out the forms. :P Her name is Brook. He didn't know it normally has an e at the end.

    I know what you mean about names. Mine don't have any real significance either. I just feel bad since DD's does. If this is a boy the middle name 'Lewis' is DH's deceased father's name...so that's family.

    LOL that's pretty funny that her named was misspelled just from ignorance, but I bet that used to happen a LOT before Google-era! Now people do it on purpose to be different...huge peeve of mine actually. The SPELLING doesn't make a name unique because you HEAR it a lot more often than see it written down.
