I actually bought a book of names... so I went through it last night, looking for *new* names to add to my list.
Help me narrow it down before I take it to DH.

Alternatives are welcome! So are combos
And FYI, our last name starts with an L and is one syllable.

Girls:
Adrienne
Allena (a-LEE-na)
Amaya
Annika
Audrey
Briana
Bridgett
Cadence (mn)
Cady/Kady
Chloe
Ciara (kee-ARR-ah)
Eaden/Eden
Eliana (el-ee-AH-nah)
Grace (mn)
Hannah
Harper
Hope (mn)
Jolie (mn)
Jolise (mn)
Jullian
Keanna/Kiana (kee-AHN-ah)
Keera/Kiera (KEER-ah)
Malea/Maleah (ma-LEE-ah)
Malina (ma-LEEN-ah)
Mattea
Samara


Boys:
Bennett
Cade
Cavan
Corben
Declan
Gabe
Garett/Garrett
Gavin
Grady
Lukas/Lucas (mn)
Luke
Maddox
Noah
Zander

EDIT:
I had DH look at the list last night...

For boys, he completely veoted Noah and Declan. He doesn't want Garrett bc his secretary's son is Garrett.
He LIKES Cade Bennett & Cade Lucas... that's it.

For girls, he vetoed Allena & Adrienne. He liked more of the girl names - Amaya Jolie, Annika Jolise, Brianna Jolise, Eliana Jolie & Kiera Jolie.

This is so difficult! I'm starting to think we should just wait till we find out the sex to stress anymore. That way we can just stress over ONE gender! LOL

I would keep ...

Adrienne
Annika
Audrey
Bridgett (prefer it spelled with one T, or as Brigid)
Cady/Kady (as a nickname for something, lots of options to choose from!)
Chloe
Ciara
Eliana
Grace (so overdone as a mn ... why not be bold and use it as a fn?)
Hannah
Hope (see Grace)
Jolie (mn)
Kiera
Maleah (prefer it spelled Malia)
Malina
Mattea

Bennett
Corben (if spelled Corbin)
Declan
Gabe (as a nn for Gabriel, maybe)
Gavin
Lucas (mn)
Luke
Noah

The ones I really like are bolded.

I know! It's definitely hard and we're not even pregnant yet!!! If you're going to find out the gender- I'm sure it will be easier just to wait and then only have to worry about one sex.

You and I have the same taste in names, I really liked most of your names. I like a lot of A names too, and I have Adria on my list. Thought I'd suggest it to you, because I think it's really pretty. ("ay dree uh")

For a boy, I like most of your choices, but apparantly, your DH doesn't agree with us. LOL From the ones he likes, I like Cade Bennett the best. I actually have Bennett on my list. :>)

From the girls list(that you both agreed on) I like Kiera Jolie and Annika Jolise the best. Have you considered Joelle, or Joanna? Both of those are pretty too.

Good luck! I know this is hard, my DH and I went through the same thing!
