My sister's name is Fiona. It was a rare name in the states when she was young but it is becoming heard of more and more. I have a cousin named Alistair too, I do like that name. Iain is too much like Aidan (our 2 year old) or we would consider that too.

Hey Ishbel, where do you live in Scotland? My mom grew up in Montrose and plenty of family that still live in that area.

Boys
Gray
Rowan
Skye
Liam
Theron

Girls
Avery
Marisol
Aria
Aurelia
Cheyanne (IMO, yuck)

I'd appreciate any ideas you all have. We still have over 2 months but we are getting short on ideas. Thanks all!
I like Rowan. It also could be used for a girls name. For boys I am also partial to Jackson, William, Harper, Kegan and Daniel. For girls I would have to choose between Hannah, Larissa, and Bailey.

I'm not too keen on Rowan, simply because in Scottish folk lore it is the tree that one plants in the garden to keep witches from the door!

PS I've got 3 in my gardens! (You can never be TOO careful!)

I am totally unbiased in this, since my grandchildren have the most beautiful names - Elizabeth Ashton, Samantha Christine, Annabelle Grace, Charles Henry (Charlie)(he calls himself Chachi, he isn't quite 2)and Owen Matthew. Their names literally roll off my tongue and I don't know why. I get the warmest feeling even thinking of them. Also my oldest grandaughter, who is like my own child, Christy Leigh. How did I miss her?????????????She is grown up - the others are still little kids.

How about Ashley Lee Gilbert for a girl? Or Liam Gray Gilbert for a boy? I don't know - I was just trying out how some names sounded and "fit" together.

Bottom line is, when you see and hold your child, it will all fall into place!

Trust the process!! And the very best wishes for you and your growing family!

I'm more for the old fashioned names, but what do you think about the name Winston Charles for a boy or Ashleigh Nichole for a girl?
