I am having my first child in september, but we are not finding out the gender. It would be fantastic if it went well with our niece and nephews names, Lily Grace, Thomas Asher, and Eamon Bennett., because they live close and will spend lots of time together. The girl names that we like are Harper, Riley, August, Auden, Anne, and Avery. Harper and Riley are just too popular for our taste, which is very sad because they are such cute names. That leaves August, Auden, Anne, and Avery.
AUGUST: I have loved this name for a very long time, and while it's still a very masculine name, I still think that it would fit a little girl. According to many sights, it means Majestic, Great, or Venerable. Howenver, my husband is still on the fence about if it could work for a girl.
AUDEN: I came across this name while talking to a friend, she said she read a book with a character in it named Auden. It's a variant form of Audun or Audunn, meaning Fate, Fortune, or Friend. We both love this name.
ANNE: This name will definitely go in the middle name place, it's a family name.
AVERY: My husband likes it, but I'm not the biggest fan. I think it's too common for us. Its meaning has something to do with elves, I couldn't find anything better then that.
The boy names that we like are William, Roland, Hart, Oliver and Julian.
WILLIAM: It's my mother's maiden name (plus s), so it has meaning to us. Wee both love the nickname Will, and would call him that most of the time. It means desire to protect from what I could find.
ROLAND: It's hard, but I think this one's my favorite boys name. I like how it's easy to spell and pronounce, yet not very popular. The meaning of this one is famous throughout the land.
HART: Hart is going to be the middle name if it's a boy. I like it because it's masculine, but still has a soft side. It means stag, as in a male deer, or hardy and strong.
OLIVER: This one used to be me and my husbands number one, it was nearly set in stone that this was our boys name for the longest time, but i guess that we just grew out of it. It means olive tree.
JULIAN: Ah, Julian. Me and my husband can both agree that one of our kids is going to have this name, although it may not be the first. We also like the nickname Jules. I could not find a definitive answer to the meaning of Julian.
Please help! Thanks so much guys!
