On my first, I took the advice of looking at the names of towns on a map. We picked Camden for our son (have seen it used for girl or boy). Now we use Bible names, modified Serah to come up with Seriah for our last girl. iah on the end of a name adds part of Hebrew name for God, Yahweh. That was a plus I learned after having and naming her. It was the name of a high priest and some others late in the Hebrews history, and it means Yah (God) has prevailed. My last baby (we have 7) is named Eliyah (I used the more Hebrew spelling instead of the traditional Elijah).

I swear my sister and her sister-in-law try to out-do each other with different names, they have 6 girls between them starting with Tianna, Zahli, Trinity, Emity, Payton and Reagen...I went classic with Liam and Kate and to my suprise, no other child at kind has!!

Our boys' names are Leif Aidan and Tait Crispin. Leif means "beloved" and Tait means "cheerful". They are both Scandinavian names. We had considered Adair for a middle name as well as Cedric.( Adair can be used for a girl as well).
No girls here, but we love Willow and thought Isabella Adelle sounded nice together...but Isabella is quite popular..Good luck!

My daughter is Chloe Violet which I love. Chloe is becoming quite popular but I personally don't know any. Violet was my Great Grandmother's name and I loved it so much. My hubby was as big of a fan so we made it a middle name. Another name I love is Grace or Gracie. Or Lottie. We are using the name Brody if we have a boy next time.

My daughter's name is Jayden, and when I was pregnant with her, we never heard of anyone being named that, and now, there is Jayden's everywhere, boys & girls.
Also my name is Nikia (Nick-Key-A) which I have ever only heard of two.

My son is called Willoughby Owen and my daughter is Cecily Violet.
Willoughby is an Old English name and means settlement near the willows and the willow tree represents grace, freedom and flexibility. Cecily is an old medieval name and is the female version of Cecil and means the blind one. St Cecilie who lived in the second or third century was known as the patron saint of music and was blind.
My oldest brother is Jolyon. :))

My daughter is Mallory and my son is Ty (not Tyler!) I still like my name and just told my mom I think more people should name their daughters Amy since it is no longer popular. Also, my brother is Dean. I think that is a good name for a boy that you don't hear very often.

I named my daughter Caroline -- I wanted something everyone could pronouce and spell but that wasn't heard everyday. And as to, odd spellings, like Montanah etc, choose carefully, you dont want your child to the one "with his/her name spelled funny" I worked on a pediatric unit and one time we had four Micheala's -- all spelled different!

My son's name is Jamie Page...he is a junior. My daughter was named after my Dad who passed away in 1992. His name was Charles Daniel....so we named her Charli Danielle. We get soooo many compliments on both names : )

My boys names are Kade Leondard John (middle names after grandfathers) and Mason Quinn. Depending on where you are there can be a few around but not lots. At Kade's old Day Care Centre he was the only one but they had had 2 previously. Mason was the only one at his old day care but when we went to his current centre there was another Mason who's surname also started with a K so that was a bit difficult with clothing etc for a while. I actually like Charlie for either a girl or boy and really although it sounds common, it is not. Good luck!!!
