These are the names that DB and I have agreed upon...we don't find out until March 5 what we're having so it'll be much easier to narrow the list then. I'm having a hard time finding boy names that I really like... I don't want anything too unique, but I don't want a common name either so I'm kind of stuck. The middle names will be Matthew or David for a boy and Lynn or Marie for a girl. My #1 choices right now are Emma Lynn and Jacob Matthew....Any thoughts/comments/suggestions would be great! (For some reason I can't get the list to run side by side)

Even though Emma and Jacob are both really nice names, they are extremely common right now. Jacob placed #1 and Emma placed #2 for the 2006 Top baby names list. That being said, popularity doesn't bother a lot of people, so if you really love the names, I'd use them. But if you want to be sure that your child won't be Emma C. or Jacob S. (depending on your last name), I probably would go with a less common name. You can find the list of names here: Baby Names

Out of your other names, here are the ones I like best:

Ethan
Gabriel
Nathaniel
Preston
Zachary
Abigail
Adriana
Arianna
Autumn
Ella
Hannah
Samantha

I like both Emma and Jacob but both are so popular right now. For a baby born in 2008, I wouldn't use them!

I like these the best:

Alexander
Benjamin
Gabriel
Jacob
Nathaniel
Zachary


Adriana
Alyson
Anabelle (spelled Annabel or Annabelle or even Anabel, but Anabelle looks mispelled).
Anna
Autumn
Ella
Emma
Grace
Haley
Laura
Rachael (I prefer Rachel).
Samantha

I know what you all mean about Jacob and Emma....but those have always been my fav names since I was little though! Emma was one of my doll's names! Not to mention, DB's cousin wants to use Emma if and when she gets pg and has a girl. Benjamin is my second fav and then Ethan for a boy and I like Adriana, Arianna and I think Abigail has made it up there now. I wasn't crazy about Abigail at first, but the more I say it the more I like it. Especially with Marie. Abigail Marie. Sounds good to me We're pretty flexible as far as middle names for girls goes, I just thought I'd use my mom's middle name (Lynn) or my great-grama's first name (Marie) or possibly my middle name (Ann) depending on which name we choose and what names go together the best. As far as boy middle names go, I'm pretty much set on Matthew (after my cousin who passed away) or David (which is DB's 4th generation middle name).

Thanks for all your help. I think most of the names you all picked are the ones we're going to end up narrowing it down to and they go well with the middle names. I'm so bummed that my fav names are so popular right now. That's what I want to avoid...DB likes more common names like Michael and what not, but I don't want my child to be one of 10 other kids with the same name...lol!

But I really like all of them and I think what we're going to do is probably narrow it down to 3 once we find out what we're having and decide what feels right when the baby is born.

I think a lot of the names on your list are too common, especially since you said you don't really want anything very common. But of your list, these are the names I like, and the ones that go the best with the middle names imo.
Nathaniel
Preston
Julia
Juliette/Juliet
