Not sure what Kel is looking for, but here are my names that I like. Too bad most of the boy names sound stupid with Hilton as a last name, so I won't use most of them :( Our girls name is going to be Josephine Grace (don't laugh, it's after our grandmothers, and I LOVE it)

BOY:
Connor
Carter
Landon
Spencer
Gavin
Aiden

Cooter?! Why stop there? Name the poor kid "Scrotum"...

I've always liked Emerson for a girl and Everett for a boy-

you cannot name anything "cooter" that's like naming a child vagina!

OK....I've decided that if my wife is indeed pregnant with a girl (remember, we already have the boy's name, Elijah John) there's no way I'm opening up a Name NHPlanner's Baby Girl thread! :)

Its pronounced Mah TEE jah, but the real, polish pronunciation , and the one i like much better should be Muh TAY ah.

And you guys are hysterical. Christine, i'm not really looking for name, brian just offered to help. If i have my way, the girls will be Grace Karen, and Anna Elizabeth - both middle names are our sisters. If we have boys, probably Little Bobby (ack!) and Ethan Patrick (mn is my bro).

and the plural is because i've got a better shot at twins than i do with just a singleton.

but now that you mention it.... What about Boom Boom Washington Mateja?

She hasn't taken a test since Wednesday last week....and we just haven't had the guts to take another one (over the past 7 months we've lost track of how many negative pregnancy tests she's taken)....I guess the good news is that she still hasn't started her period....so there is still hope....I will keep you posted, Kelly. :)

First of all...what is SAAF?

On how late...well...up until the last 2 months she was very irregular....but the last 2 months she seemed back to normal. Assuming back to normal, she should have started on either Wednesday or Thursday last week.

I can't believe we have not had a few "planner" names yet:

Burnham
Nolen
Levitt

Of course, you could always go with names having an ethnic flavor:

Brunhilda
Dieter
Horst

Or you might want to name your kid(s) after these reprobates:

Osama
Fidel
Prudence
Saddam

Those seem like upscale suburban last-name-as-first-name names.

Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with a timeless Irish-sounding name.

You could also consider the following:

Paco
Chuy
Rubio/Rubia
Jose
Chico
Ponch
Manuel
Jesus
Che
Orlando
Rudy
Ese
Vito
Angelo
Vinnie
Guido
Rocco
Vinchenza
Stanislaus

I've always thought Angus was a lovely name for either a boy or a girl. You could go with Mateja Mateja in honor of Catch 22 or taking it further Butros Butros Mataja. Perhaps, Sho Nuff Mateja - from "I'm gonna get you sucka." Or another favorite is "Whitey." That name will serve him well just about anywhere.

I love the name you picked out! I was close to choosing josephine, used to like Cornelia and Esther also. But we have an Allison and an August-Jane.


I like Claire, it is growng in popularity like Grace and Mabel (only because Paul and Jamie had a Mabel from Mad about You) I am sure. I m mean Mabel?
