Okay I have been thinking and thinking and here is what I have:

GIRL:

Cora Ellison (Cora after my grandmother and ellison is after my sis in law allison!)

Boy:

Still debating but I still have narrowed it down to 2

Nate Alexander (not family names)

Nathan Hanks (I thought nathan would sound better with my other children -but we will call him Nate and Hanks is my mothers maiden name)

I still need to make sure DH likes them...he is hunting right now eeerrrr

I'm really not a fan of Ellison on a girl. What about Alice? Cora Alice sounds lovely. Alison is a diminutive form of Alice.

I like Nathan Alexander, with the nickname Nate.

You could also go with Nathan Henry or Nathaniel Henry, as Hank is a nickname for Henry.

I love Cora! Such a beautiful name, and it sounds nice with Ellison. I also think Nathan nn Nate goes very well with your other childrens name.

Love Cora Ellison, very pretty! I know a little girl named Cora who is 9 months old, and she is the most adorable little girl ever! I prefer Nathan or Nathaniel with Nate as a nn, rather than using Nate as a stand alone name.

Cora Ellison is really nice!

Usually I'd prefer Alison to Ellison, but I like how this combination sounds.

Love Cora! Sooo pretty!

Nathan Alexander would be my pick, but I love that Hanks is a family name for you so if I were you, I'd go with that one.

I like Nathan nn Nate better than just Nate....Nathan Alexander is nice and goes great w/ other kids names.

Cora Ellison is pretty too! I don't really think it honors the name Allison (I agree with the pp that Alice would be a more obvious choice) but regardless I like Ellison and the flow is nice. I think CorA Allison or CorA Alice would run together with one ending in A and one beginning with A.
