    Okay the more I think about the girl's names the more I only like Leah with those two middle name options.

    I do like Logan Roger.

    Which is why DH vetoed them both. Though the last time I said Rory he said eh, which I took as not quite a veto.

    Right now my favorite girl name is Leah, favorite boys are Marshall, Mitchell, or Logan. Who knows what DH likes. I think I will name this baby with you ladies and fill him in later. Regardless of what he might think, in the past 2 namings my opinion has counted for more than his, anyway (don't tell him that!!!!!)

    Who has spelling variations for Leah?

    One of the class wives here is Leigha. I really like that.

    I think Leigha. I think it's pretty. There was a girl at my school who spelled it Leiha. I didn't know her at all, so I have no negative associations with the spelling

    Want to know the meaning of the name Leah? Hebrew for "Mountain Cow," according to Baby Name Wizard.

    Another site says Leah means "weary." I suppose that's better.

    I like Evan Roger, but if that one is dropping on your list, I also really like Logan Roger. Logan was on my list for boys.

    I knew a girl in HS whose name is Leyla. She was super sweet.
    You could also do Kaila and then pronounce it either Kayla or Kyla - I would read it Kayla. Leah is pretty too.

    DH originally picked Kole's name when I was pg with Lyla then when I was pg again he looked up the meaning and it means "the dark one" (I'm guessing because of coal) and he tried to bail on the name for that reason. I don't care much about all that 'what it means' crap. That's just where some random person sat down and (in a lot of cases) arbitrarily decided that, IMO.

    I agree that in most cases it doesn't matter...the only time anyone ever asks you what it means is if it's unusual (we get that question a lot). Adair means "from the oak tree ford" which...okay? Nice, I guess? But not why I picked it, certainly.

    No one will EVER ask you what Leah means. And if they do, just make something up

    (apparently, it can also mean "delicate" if you like that any better...or "gazelle", which is certainly more poetic than "Mountain Cow"! LOL)

    I don't think Leah has a bad meaning (I found the Hebrew meanings first of weary and delicate) and it is biblical. She gave Jacob 6 sons. Not like it means murderer or something. I do look up name meanings and love it when I love a name with a good meaning, but it won't keep me from a name I love unless it's truly awful. Zoe is life in Greek. The meaning is one of the the things that drew me to the name originally when I saw it, but it's not like I chose it because of the meaning if that makes sense. Seems like most meanings are getting lost and websites can pretty much publish whatever they want these days.
