Sorry to Erin and Hayley who have to hear me ramble about names all the time on a daily basis hah!
We have a super super solid girls name list that we are in LOVE with. Will not choose a name until we know if it's a girl- and then we'll probably choose right away
Our boys list is a bit more pitiful. We have 3 we love, but concerns about two.
Charles August (will go by August/Auggie)
Charles Arthur (will go by Arthur/Bear- the meaning of Arthur)
Charles Hugh (will go by Hugh/Huey til he's old enough to hate me for the nn)
Fiances name is Charles Taylor- goes by Taylor- hence the tradition.
Arthur is the only one we're certain on. August worries us because of the Fault In Our Stars movie and the main character being Augustus- suddenly we're noticing August on a lot of lists- even tho it's in the 300's on the SS list. We love Hugh- but the daughter we're in the process of adopting from Ethiopia will be named Lucille/Lucy (we named her a year ago) and we worry if we ever call her Lu- that sounds dumb with Hugh.
Emile was our top name for foreverrrrr until we realized Emile and Lucille sounded ridiculous.
