We only have the Redwood River near here, so I won't be using that name  :-)  

 

Camden is the biggest state park around here and is widely used as a landmark.  It does have postivie associations, but still might be weird for a name since it's only about 10 miles away.

Yes, I think we will have to go with a mroe classic middle name for sure...also DH thinks it's a boy, (my gut says girl) so getting him to think about girl names has been harder, lol.  I like Reagan and Sydney - I'll be adding those to my list!  Thank you!   

 

I like many of the names on your boy list, but here's a question, is it weird to name a baby the name of a nearby town or landmark?   We live with 15 minutes of Porter and a state park called Camden...so I wasn't sure on that.  

 

Thanks!

I know I couldn't be the only one that liked it for a girl!  And I do like all 3 of those names - thank you!  We also considered Rhys for a boy  :-)

 

I said Celia to my husband last night and he didn't shut it down, so that's a start!  I've seen Calliope on here quite often lately, I also like it.  I would worry about pronounciation issues (even from my in-laws), but it's cute!

Thanks for the ideas!  I like Lauren and Lola...I'll have to run them by the hubby.   

 

I've never heard Stellan before - interesting!

I do like the name Lauren!  It's classic without being too overdone, I think.  However, if you watched the first episode of this season's Bachelor, there are like 4 Lauren's- ha!

Just a few more ideas for you - Oscar, Palmer, Marcellus, Thatcher

I will likely not win the battle on Logan for a girl, so you're safe.  The other "L" names you provided seem so fussy - I'd rather have something simple.  

I actually really like Blaise but our good friends named their new puppy Blaze about 6 months ago so I struggle with that overlap.  

I will definitely check out names from other languages - I actually just downloaded an app that can help with that.  Good idea.

For a girl, I want something that isn't so common, something that is strong, independent and not overtly girly.  I also like Blakely and though it's fairly common, Lauren or Loren.  Does that help?

Thanks for all the possibilities!  Adelaide was my grandmother's name, who I admired a great deal, I'm so happy to see that name suggested by other people!  Thank you!

Thanks for the ideas!  I like Lawson and will definitely add that to the list.  I also like Anya (I've only heard it one other time and it was a couple that has adopted children from 4 different countries and tried to give them all names with some of their heritage attached, so I hadn't considered it, but it's beautiful).

 

As for the other two, longer lists, I will run them by my hubby -it's a great place to start!  

 

Thanks again!
