    So some uncommon but not too out there names:

    Alastair
    Bellamy
    Etienne(Someone told me this was the French form of Stephan)
    Maverick
    Mykelti
    Thatcher
    Kassian
    Kincaid
    Fletcher

    I know some of them are a bit last namey but it is hard to find a decent long uncommon name that isn’t .

    I love Tobias, But it does seem to be moving up the charts.

    My twins were ALMOST Deveraux(Dev) and Remington(Remi), But DH changed his mind on the way to the hospital.

    I’m really just procrastinating finishing my Christmas list, But I did get Nik to think about some combos while he painted the nursery today. I think we have our top ten but I’m not sure on a couple of them:

    Alayna Mae Khalski(Ally Mae.)
    Amelia Faith Khalski(Lia.)
    Anastasia Mae Khalski(Ana Mae.)
    Rebekah Caroline Khalski(Bex, Becky or Becca?)
    Charlotte Mae Khalski(Charlie Mae.)
    Davina Jade Khalski(DJ.)
    Juliana Faith Khalski(Jules, or Julie.)
    Caroline Davina Khalski(Cary?)
    Juliette Grace Khalski(Jules, or Julie.)
    Penelope Saige Khalski(Penny.)

    First I need to finish making my Christmas list. Then I need to start my Christmas shopping. Hopefully I can get the kids to help me finish organizing/cleaning the playroom. Nik is supposed to finish painting the nursery today so maybe we can start putting furniture together, But we will see.

    We narrowed the list a bit more and played around with some combos. Still not sure about some of them though:

    FIRST OR MIDDLE NAMES:
    Alayna, Alexandra, Amelia, Anastasia, Caroline, Charlotte, Davina, Juliana, Juliette, Leilani, Penelope, Rebekah, Serenity, Victoria

    MIDDLE NAMES ONLY:
    Delaney, Faith, Grace, Hope, Jade, Mae, Paige, Rae, Saige, Zella

    Alexandra Grace Khalski(Alex, Ally, or Lexi?)
    Caroline Paige Khalski(Cary?)
    Charlotte Mae Khalski(Charlie Mae.)

    Juliette Grace Khalski(Jules, or Julie.)
    Leilani Zella Khalski(Leila?)
    Penelope Saige Khalski(Penny.)
    Victoria Mae Khalski(Vicki, or Tori.)

    I think we are both liking these combos:

    Alayna Mae Khalski(Ally Mae.)
    Amelia Faith Khalski(Lia.)
    Anastasia Mae Khalski(Ana Mae.)
    Rebekah Caroline Khalski(Bex, Becky or Becca?)

    @embra They were 5 at the time. But what was so funny was that when the plumber asked them how he got in there Ben replied “I don’t know maybe he took a midnight swim and got stuck.” followed by Max adding “Or maybe he was a little creep and we made him take a swim with the fishies.”(They had a couple of goldfish that died about a week before and Daddy flushed them.)

    We had an elf last year named “George”, but my twins thought it was creepy and flushed him down the toilet on day 3, so no more elf in this house.

    False!! I don’t ever get flu shots. I’m not anti-vaccine, I just don’t react well to them.

    The person below me is already sick of Christmas.

    So we decided to play nice with each other and narrow down the list:

    FIRST OR MIDDLE NAMES:
    Aviana, Alayna, Alexandra, Amelia, Anastasia, Arabella, Caroline, Charlotte, Davina, Evangeline, Jesimae, Juliana, Juliette, Leilani, Melanie, Nataliya, Novella, Penelope, Persephone, Rebekah, Raelynn, Serenity, Sascha, Tessalynn, Vanessa, Victoria

    MIDDLE NAMES ONLY:
    Brooke, Delaney, Faith, Fiona, Grace, Hazelle, Hope, Jade, Joy, Mae, Nicolette, Paige, Rae, Sophia, Saige, Zella, Zoey

    @gmr2broadway Giving in to her would be using Delilah. That’s what she does. My sister gave in and used Carter(A name she had her heart on since she was about five.) And now we have two 3 year old Carters. My SIL thinks its cute to have them dress alike(Seriously she calls every time she knows my sister will be somewhere with her kids just to make sure they match.) If I didn’t have family members named Genevieve, Danielle, Bianca and Adriana they would absolutely be on our list. And I really don’t know where Tessalynn, Delaney and Zoey came from, I normally don’t even like them.

    To be more FAIR I went through Nik’s list just like I did mine(saying the name out loud in different tones. Saying it to family, friends, neighbors really anyone who would listen, having other people say the name and just getting a real feel of it) Some weren’t as bad as I initially thought and some I really don’t like:

    Anya(Not a fan)
    Arina(Sounds to much like arena)

    Ayanna(I don’t know how I feel about this)
    Anabelle(OK)
    Arabella(Its fine)
    Braelyn(Not a fan)
    Bryleigh(NO)

    Brielle(My feelings on this have not changed)
    Catrina(NO)
    Cianna(NO)
    Danette(All I hear is “Damn It”)
    Dailyn(I don’t Know)
    Davina(Nik really likes this but I’m not sure)

    Leilani(OK)
    Lanna(Not a fan)
