We are not finding out the gender of this baby so we need to come up with several names for each sex. We won't name the baby until after it is born, but I'm trying to narrow down our lists.

Our last name is Skates.

If it is a boy, his middle name will be Joseph after my dad (he passed away when I was 2) and my step-dad (his middle name). That will definitely not change as it is a way to honor both of my fathers.

We like names that are not too common...if you know of any boys with these names, please let me know. We live in a very rural area, so there are not a lot of kids around here and we are not up to date on the popularity of these names other than what they are ranked in the Social Security database.

Please suggest any other names you think go well.

I like Milo Joseph Skates, very cute. I don't know anyone with the name Milo. My second favorite is Simon.

I choose Simon but it's really a toss up between Milo and Simon. I like these names pretty equally.

ETA: I don't know any Milo's and I know two Simon's but they are both grown men. I also don't know anyone by the other names that you listed.

Simon is my favorite by a mile If I had to choose a 2nd, it'd be Milo but that reminds me of the movie Homeward Bound

I love the name Solomon! So handsome. I only know 1 child with any of the names you have listed (Conrad) and he was named after his father.

Milo would be my second choice.

My Dh said "go to the library and get a baby name book"

I like Simon, but Dh thinks that everyone will be naming baby Simon because of American Idol.

I voted for Simon. I really love Solomon but I like Simon Joseph better and I think Simon and Delia sound great together.

I also really like Milo but I can never picture it on someone aged 13-50, I'm not really sure why.

I love Milo Joseph, and I think Milo and Delia go really well together.

Simon is cute, but I don't like the sound of Simon Skates.

I voted Cormac .. I know a great with kid with this name, and I think it goes nicely with Delia.

Milo is a close second.
