Was looking through family photos with my husband's aunt. Learned a lot though the reason for going through the photos was sad (husband's grandpa passed away, services are this weekend, grandpa was David Franklin).

Anna & Franklin "Frank"
Virginia & David Chester (my grandmother was also named Virginia, mn Gladys)

I would be thrilled to use the name Virginia one day but dh doesn't care for place names

Incomplete list of family names a couple generations ago and older:
Roberta (dh)
Charlotte (dh)
David (dh)
Emil (dh)
Doris (dh)
Bradley "Brad" (dh)
Jim, assume nn for James (dh)
Buddy, actual name not nn (dh)
Charles (dh)
Elsie Lorraine, went by Lorraine (dh)
Richard "Dick" (dh)
Ann (dh)
Edward "Ed" (dh)
Thomas (mine)
Virginia Gladys (mine)
Diana Marie (mine)
Eileen Marie (mine)
Eleanor (mine)
David (mine)
James "Jim" (mine)
Thomas "Tommy" (mine)

I like Eileen and there are a bunch of great mainstream male names there too! I actually know a 20 year old guy named Buddy his full real first name!

Maybe. Husband is one of those who does not want to discuss names until after we know the gender. He doesn't really want to discuss it then either but he has to. He shocked me by actually looking up boys names a few weeks ago but now he's back to refusing to discuss names. So we'll see.
