How did you name your children?

I have five children all born within five-and-a-half years of each other:

When I first became pregnant I struggled on names for my future child A LOT. I wasn't sure which style of names I liked best, and I certainly didn't want to scar my baby for life with a horendous name that I thought was... cute, trendy, etc. that later turned out to be the worst name in history. Ok... maybe I'm exaggerating just a little. I wasn't going to go "celebrity" style and name my child Pilot Inspektor or Apple though, I just wanted something pretty, classy, or unique. In the end my husband and I decided to encorporate unique and pretty and classy into our childrens' names, coming up with these names for our five children (mind you we find their whole names unique, so i'm not going to cover that below):

Violet Everleigh- Violet is classy, Everleigh is pretty

Mila Eleanor- Mila is pretty, Eleanor is classy

Seraphina Aurora- In my opinion, both are pretty and classy

Connor Jace- My son was a different story, because I certainly couldn't give him a "pretty" namme. So I decided on a masculine name: Connor Jace

Adelaide Grace- Both are pretty and classy

***
And there you have it! So my question is, after hearing how I named my kids, how did YOU name your babies?
