What do you think?

We have picked out a name for a girl (I feel like it’s a girl this time– the other two times, I thought they were boys.) I’ll be happy either way, obviously, but I am becoming more and more psyched for a little girl. Which is weird, since I always wanted boys. Having worked in daycare for years, I always liked boys better, and felt they were much… simpler to care for. lol Boys are rough and tumble and fun, but girls tend to be more emotional and high maintenance. 😛
Anyway, IF we have a little girl (and I really kinda hope we do) we want to name her Elanor Miriam. Elanor, because we are both ardent Tolkien geeks (“No honey, we didn’t name you after the First Lady, you were named after a Hobbit”) and Miriam, after my great aunt who was killed in a car accident this past Christmas Eve.
I think it sounds very refined and elegant. I want to call her Ella though.
For a boy, we have a lot of ideas, but no solid decisions. We have plenty of time, I know, but still… We like the names Cedric and Duncan. Matt likes Nigel, but unfortunately, I see wedgies in that child’s future. We’ve also tossed around the possibility of naming a boy after both our fathers– John Charles.
