Do you have any names you love, though you know you'd never actually use? There are so many names I think are cute, but I know I will never use.

Summer--a little stripperish, I've been told!
Kaylee, Kylie--super duper cute, but I think it may be TOO cute to grow well. Plus, it's pretty trendy
Ayla--We seriously considered this one for DD, but we determined that we are too traditional in our tastes otherwise, so it would be hard to come up with more non-traditional names after that
Carolina--I'm sure it would get mispronounced all the time
Kaitlyn--same issue as Kaylee or Kylie
Emily--sentimental reasons for me. The name of my first leading character (I'm an actress). However, I know I don't want a top ten name, let alone a top 3!
Raine--too hippyish for my personality, though I think it's beautiful
Sunshine--Even more hippyish for sure, but I knew a Sunshine once that went by Sunny, and I think that is the cutest nickname for a girl!


Austin--Love this name, but it rhymes with our last name in the most ridiculous way
Elliott--I mentioned it once, and every single member of my family simultaneously did their best E.T. impersonation!
Tristan--Beautiful, but I'm not convinced it's the most masculine name. Anyway, it rhymes stupidly like Austin does!
Blake--A guy in my past DH is very aware of, so no way am I bringing that one up!

I like Brooklyn for a girl, but the nn Brooke doesn't go with our last name at all and I don't think I could name a baby after a city, but I love the name!

I like Jace and Micah for boys, but they don't go with my dds "normal" names

I guess any boy names that could be girly sounding. My husband is very adamant about having our boys name sound very masculine.

These are the ones I like that he thinks sound too girly to use for a boy:

Camden
Jaden
Parker
Tristan
Rylan
Adrian
Lucas
Dallas

I love the name Brooklyn, but DH is from Brooklyn, so I don't think it would work.

But I love the name!
