Quoting Brianna Eldridge-Cotteril:" I have other names picked out, these were just two that I put together that had something to do with mother and my brother."


I must have missed where you said your mother. And what exactly is your brothers name?

That's really sad :( to be fair, we didn't know it was his name until you explained a little more. If you like it, then use it! It's special to you.

What other names do you like?



Something's to consider when naming your baby.



-your child will be an adult for far longer than they will be a child. Plenty of names are great for little kids but are very silly on adults. Gracelynn is an example.
-employers will see the name before ever meeting your child, reading their resume etc. names are the first impression, often employers throw out resumes solely based on a persons name.
- no one wants to constantly spell/pronounce their name




Please ignore my horrid grammar, I'm nursing and too lazy to fix it.

Augusta is a great name.



Ava and Abigail aren't bad, though very popular and kind of overdone.

I really like Ava, grace, Abigail (Abi for nn!) and adalyn. What about Mae for a middle name? Ava grace sounds nice also.



For boys I liked Brody and Tyson, those are great, especially with Clay. What about Daniel, Dean, James or using clay or Clayton as the first name? Just some ideas :)

nobody is saying shit about your brother though, it's the name only.

Thanks, good suggestions.



I like all, except Daniel.



I haven't checked it, I'm doing it now.
I wish I had a baby book.



I think I outta get one, or just look up names on google.

www.behindthename.com is awesome. It will tell you if it's a male or female name by origin, popularity if it's in the top 1000, meaning and so on. It's the holy grail of baby names :D

I like Abigail and Grace for the girl names.
For boy names I like Cain and Draven.




I also like the suggestion Clayton, it's one of my favorite boy names :P
