Xavier and Quinn and ?
So here I am 4 days before meeting this new addition (#3- gender unknown) to our family, desperately trying to find a name that I LIKE (LOVE would be great, but doubtful at this point). We have Xavier Brian Lorac LaRock and Quinn Mary-Grace LaRock. Both my kids have original first names and two family names as middle names (grandparents)
Obviously I like slightly less common names, but REAL NAMES! (sorry if I offend anyone, but these are our personal opinions about the names that fit into our family) I can not use names that are:
1) very obviously made up (BRAYLIELYNN)
2) flowery or fancy or cute (DAPHNIE)
3) Purposely miss spelled (GANAPHERE does not spell Jennifer!)
4) In the top 50 most popular or variations of them (AIDEN, AYDON, AIDAN... BRAIDEN, CAIDEN, LAIDEN, JAIDEN...)
5) you can imidately make a connection to someone or something (ANGELINA... JOLIE)
So I am now left with the duty of choosing a name and can't seem to find one that I continue to like for more then a few days at a time! Short lists have included:
BOY: Zander (too close to Xavier?), Oliver (becoming to popular?), Jasper (twilight connection - boo), Zachary (just ok), Zephyr (too different?), Agustus (nn gus?), Zavian (too weird?)
MIDDLE NAMES: Vanden, Leopold, Milford, Clearance, Roy
GIRL: Sawyer (#1 SO FAR-too masculine?), Zoey (too popular!), Ziva (not sure), Zephyr (too different?), Zacari (Zah - CAR- ee, -> too 'pretty'/people would mispronounce/spell)
MIDDLE NAMES: Babette, Arlene, + other possibilities
outside of these are there any suggestions that meet our very picky criteria? I am not against using last names of distinguished figures (scientists, chefs, political figures, authours etc) but they have to work as a first name.
