Well over half of those names are family members for DH or I. Are we related????!!!! I do love the name Benjamin but it's been pretty popular here lately. I do like Joel, hmmm. I might have to add that one to the list.
Probably not, but I am the youngest of 10 Joel is actually Benjamin's dad and the first of my nieces/nephews that I remember being born - I was 9. The top 5 J's under my nephews are brothers.
Maggie Mae reminds of a song. Someone mentioned Finn which is nice, but is getting really popular. Between Noak and Augustus i prefer Noah.
Names on my curent working list
Abigail Jacqui ( or Jaqueline hubby needs to confirm this as it is his choice from his family)
Ruby ( my chanves of Ruby are slim to none, it is on our middle name list though)
Robert ( on our middle name list, if our next is a boy he will be something Robert).
I'll dig my baby name book out later and come up with some ideas
I like Delilah and Noah too. Maggie Mae IS a song (well, Maggie May--Rod Stewart), and Ella Mae makes me think of the Dukes of Hazzard.
I considered Mae for a first name too. It's pretty and old fashioned in a good way.
I had Grayson on my boy name list for a while. I also love Noah except we have a friend with a son named that. Finn is WAY too popular--I have a nephew Finn and know at least 3 more. Let's see if I can find my list...boy names stressed me out so I didn't keep as much of a list as I did for girls. The only ones I can remember off the top of my head are Elliot and Owen.
I had sort of forgotten about Owen, that's a name I like.
And yes, the problem I'm having majorly is that between DH and I we know so many people and have too many relatives LOL! It doesn't seem to be affecting our girls name list so much as our boys name list.
I still just really like the simplicity of Noah. DH's middle name is Joseph. Would Noah Joseph work? I also really like the name Simon but DD1's horse's name is Simon. That totally sucks!
