The more I can feel the New Baby moving around inside of me the more I've been thinking about names for this baby. The hubs is pretty much waiting until after the ultrasound to have a major baby-name discussion but I've been thinking about it - a lot.
Favorite name for a boy:
Eli - it is still my favorite name, even though I started liking it because of a TV show. I've looked around on some of the baby naming sites and every time I see the name Eli it makes me happy. I have NO solid ideas for a middle name for Eli - I think Eli David is beautiful (though maybe too Jewish) and I also like Eli Hosea but I'd really like to have a non-biblical name option just in case. I like the idea of naming him Elliot (like after the poet T.S. Elliot) but calling him Eli for short - we'll see - I got raised eyebrows when I mentioned it to Daniel.
Favorite name for a girl:
Jane - I just can't get it out of my head. I had picked that name for Josiah if he'd been a girl. I had actually wanted to name him Jane Adelaide if he had been a girl - no one that I've mentioned it to has liked that name so I'm not bringing it out again this time around (Adelaide is my grandmother's middle name). So now I have no idea what middle name goes with Jane (or Jayne) so this may end up being a middle name. For example - Layla Jayne sounds wonderful to me. Still thinking...
What do you think? What would a good middle name be for either of these names?
