Came across two sibsets at work today!
Jonathan and Anna (omgoodness, so adorable! Anna especially, but Jonathan was pretty cute, too. I’m not sure about Anna’s name, but I think that’s what I heard. I know the little boy was Jonathan. :))
Leila and Camille/Layla and Camille (not sure of spellings? I was pleasantly surprised with Camille, though!)

I like all four of those names, Ash. Jonathan is really one of my favorite boys’ names but DH ruled it out.
High school acquaintance just named her new baby Jazalyn Grayce. She joins big brother Jayden.
Oh also twin boys I know turned 12 today. It’s making me feel really old because I remember the day they were born. They are Lane Gerald and Levi Wayne. Middle names are after their granddad and dad.

A little boy named Dash. I loved it just because he was in such a rush (she barely made it to the hospital in time) so even though it was going to be his name regardless, it became especially fitting!
That is a fitting name for him!!

Also a little girl who they are deciding between naming Lilith Ivy or Aubrey Nataline I think the first is a little flowery. Aubrey is pretty but Nataline I’ve never heard of?

Josias, Milka and Selah. The most adorable siblings with adorable names! I just love how unuasual and beautiful the names are. The mother is pregnant again and I’m so excited about the new baby’s name (they are keeping it a secret).

Had a baby born in the family recently! Her name is Lumen ….

Lately, I’ve heard:
Arielle (really starting to love this! I still prefer Arianne and Ariella, but Arielle is still so pretty)
There were two others, but I can’t remember them for the life of me.
A couple more I’ve heard today:
Joliet (I’ve always heard this is a form of Juliet, but I think it is really cool! Part Jolie, part Juliet, equal parts awesome. :))
Sabine (prn. Sah-bee-nah)
Also, I don’t think I mentioned it, but I met my first girl Emerson on Sunday. She was a cute kid, but I was so sad, haha. Sort of like the first time I met a girl Avery. A part of me just died, haha! I think Emma and Emmy (and Emmeline, and Emilia, and even Emily/Emilie!) are all so lovely and beautiful, but what could possibly inspire so many parents to like Emerson on a girl?!

A kid in Lucy’s gymnastics class last night was named Lincoln. It was a girl…
Kendra – ugh, I hate Lincoln on a girl! It’s such a great boys’ name.
Yesterday at our inner-city kids’ ministry I heard:
Xavian, Mireya, and Saeed (siblings. ZAY-vee-ahn, mee-RAY-ah, and sah-YEED. LOVE Mireya, could care less about the others!)
And today at work:
Malgorzata (Polish version of Margaret. I’m sure I butchered it, but this old, adorable little Polish lady was obviously pleased I at least recognized her name was Polish, haha! I’m growing to appreciate it, I think. I only wish I knew how to say it!)
Dixon (I thought it was a surname, but his friends were calling him Dix, so I assume it was his actual FN?)
Dia (short for something like India or Claudia, maybe?)
And also two kids named Dylan and Keira, not siblings, although Keira did have siblings. I just didn’t catch their names…
Anyhow. I thought they were mostly interesting.
Haha Ash, we have such different views on unisex names! I used to LOVE Emerson & Avery for a girl! They have since been replaced by new favorites, but I still like them and prefer them on a girl over a boy despite how they “originated.” I do agree that other “Em” names are more feminine, but I just can’t see Emerson as masculine either. Lincoln on the other hand…all boy!!! And I don’t like Dixon or the nn Dix at all! I can’t imagine the teasing that goes along with that name :/

Yeah, naming your daughter “Someone’sson” will just never make sense to me. You can’t get much more overtly masculine than “son”!
I agree that Dixon/Dix lends itself way too easily to teasing!
Dia is cute. I love Bronwen!
I recently met a Davion. Not sure how it’s spelled though.
The -son ending doesn’t even phase me anymore with so many Madisons, Allisons, Addisons, etc. running around. It’s an interesting discussion and I can understand people on either side of the argument.
Back to this topic, I met a Desmond (Junior), twins Lucas & Isaac with big brother Caden, and a Rachel
@lcd1912 – haha, well, I used to LOVE Emmerson for a girl, nn Emmy, but my style has changed so vastly that I don’t even understand what I was thinking, haha. It’s a good thing college Ashley couldn’t name offspring. And idk, Avery is a family name for me that I want to use, and it has some fun literary-type ties, too, so I’m very much in love with Avery for a boy. Then again, I love a lot of unisex names for boys–Rowan, Bryn, Avery, Addison, Harper, Bailey, Emerson, Aubrey, Mackenzie, etc. I have a unisex name, and quite frankly, it’s not fun being a girl and sharing a name with your uncle, haha.
Hahah Ash, I totally agree-I’m so glad I didn’t name a child during my college days (or worse-High School)! Ooo I do like Emmerson even better than Emerson though :p
I can imagine, I wouldn’t want a unisex name so as much as I do like a few, I probably won’t end up using any of them.
