Well, I'm 37 weeks pregnant and this is my fifth and final kid. I have kind of an old flavor with my names with a little "urban" twist. Anyway, We have some names chosen with middle names but also we have about a list of ten for each sex that we would want. People please help me out with these names. I just can't get through them all. Point out ANYTHING that dont seem right like spelling, possible teasing. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Delainie Rayann
Kiah Delaine
Makena Rayann
Delaina Mikell

Alexander Jace (Jace)
Jonathon Thomas
Tucker Riley
Jaxon Riley

The rest:

Brennon...........Leeanna
Brendon............Gabrienna (pro- Gab-REE-In-Ah)
Brody................Layla
Bronson.............Joelle(a)??
Dallas................Elle (family name)
Gauge...............Manwella (pro Man-well-ah) nn Manny
Damien.............Emmalyn nn Emmy
Zachary............Morgan
Rustin...............Hayden
Kal

I think Makena Rayann is my favorite next would be Gabrienna, Elle and Hayden. How is Kiah pronounced? Ki-AH? That is kinda pretty but I worry that to unusal of names will be butchered constantly. I also don't like to common of names so they won't have like 3 in the class with the same name. I don't really like Manwella.
As far as boys I like Alexander Jace, Jaxon Riley

Brody makes me think of the guy from Jaws and Gauge (Gage) was the little boy on Pet Cemetary which since ruined that name for me since he became evil. But that is just me. Goodluck deciding you have your list smaller than I have gotten mine and I know my baby is a girl. I am having alot of trouble with my Husband, he doesn't like anything.

Brennon/Brendon Jace

Rustin is definitely a different name!! I haven't heard that one before!
I also like:
Gabrienna (very unique)

I haven't seen Mikell anywhere except on this board before, is it pronounced Ma-kell or Mi-kell, like (Michael)? That is what I think of when I see it. But I think Ma-kell is pretty.

Makenna Mikell <-- I like the sound of it together, but the MMM initials might be a bit much?
Alexander Jace (Jace) <-- I love this combo.
Jaxon Riley <-- I love this one too, but I prefer the spelling Jackson.
Gabrienna (pro- Gab-REE-In-Ah) <-- I think this is cute; I've never heard of it before but I like it!
Layla <-- LOVE it!
Elle (family name) <-- Very pretty, I like this one alot too!
Emmalyn nn Emmy <-- I prefer just Emmy, but it's cute.

I think all of these names are great, so whichever you chose would be teriffic! Also, if I was to suggest more combos, I would say:
Alexander Riley
Layla Emmalyn
Gabrienna Elle or Elle Gabrienna
Still, I love them all Good luck deciding!

Delainie - I much prefer Laina, Laine, Lainey or Elaine. The 'De' part really puts me off - makes it sound really harsh.

Rayann - I really dislike this one. Some suggestions are Rani, Raizel, Rayna, Rae

Kiah - I think just Kia would be nicer. I also love Kiara - I think it is beautiful.

Makena - I really dislike this one. If you must use it go with Mackenna or Mackenzie. I think when a name is spelled properly in this day and age it is almost MORE original that an alternative spelling.

Mikell - I think Mika is just so much cuter. It also means 'God's Child'

Alexander - I love Alexander - and there can be a lot of good nicknames from this one.

Jace - I really think that Jason is nicer. I also really love Jacob.

Jonathon - Beautiful

Thomas - Beautiful

Tucker - Like the bush tucker variety?

Riley - This is nice

Jaxon - This is nice but I prefer Jacques or Jack.

Brennon - I think Brendan and Brenton are so much nicer.

Leeanna - This is nice, but drop the a. I like Leanne.

Brendon - Genious

Gabrienna - Gabrielle is beautiful, Gabrienna is

Brody - I like this. At least it is legit.

Layla - Leala is nice as is Leila. Layla is OK just not my favourite

Bronson - It is OK

Joelle - It's nice

Dallas - Nice

Elle - Its nice but I prefer Eleanor, Eleora and Ellen. Helena is also nice.

Gauge - George is nicer

Manwella - To me it sounds like jibberish for there is a man in the well.... sorry. How about Manilla, Manuela, Miranda.

Damien- Its gorgeous. I prefer it spelt with an a though.

Emmalyn nn Emmy - I prefer Emmeline but Emmalyn isnt terrible.

Zachary - This is on my shortlist. I also like Isaac.

Morgan - I like it only for a little girl
