Do you have certain "guidelines" that a name has to meet before it will make your final list. Did you do this on purpose or is it something that kind of happened?
Girls names-Must have 3 syllables w/ a two syllable nickname.
Boys names-Must have 2 syllables w/ a one syllable, four letter nickname
Both-Can't start w/ B and I try to stir clear of repeating first initials.
Just wanted to add that this wasn't something I really thought about until after my third. I saw that my girls names matched (syllable wise) and wanted that for my boys. I tried to break away from it but couldn't, LOL!
C...mom to A, C, E, L, I, and R

I don't have many set in stone rules. I try not to look at popular names (top 50 or so) but I can't say I DEFINITELY wouldn't use one.
I probably wouldn't use a name that is over 3 syllables or too long to write. I have a long first name and I get tired of writing it sometimes. I do have exceptions though....I love the name Corinthia and she never leaves my list.
I stick away from popular/ common names. We've lately been talking about sticking to two syllables, since myself, DH, and Kairi are all two... but that's not something we've got set in stone as of yet.
Hmm I'm not sure I have any definate guidelines, but I try to stay away from old fashioned names.....
Girls - generally 2 syllables, quite like place names, a lot of my faves end in -AH or -ON
Boys - generally 2 syllables, with an 'A' sound somewhere in the name, a lot of my faves end in an -IN sound (Jackson, Kaidyn, Bryndon)
I have an alphabetical fascination. The name has to have some alphabetical order or meaning. I came from a family of all K's except my Dads a J then us 3 girls MN's went Lynn, Marie, Nicole....so JKLMN.... Having the same initial strangely made me feel more bonded with my fam.
I married a J also. Seriously pondered doing J's & K's but decided since my husband and I both have L middle names I will go that route. So we are Justin, Kristi, Layla (JKL) and i am not quite sure if I will go all L names or if i will go in aphabetical order and do an M name for my 2nd child, N for my 3rd...
It's weird i admit, but it's my thing & i can't stray away.
Other than that I just gotta love the name!
