What's in a Name?

So DH and I have been brainstorming baby names. It's not that easy as the name we choose may/will define him/her for the rest of their life. We don't want our child to get beat up in the playground because of the name we choose.

I have to write down the names we like so far otherwise we're going to forget it.

GIRL:

Sara/Sarah
Audrey
Addison
Leia
Olivia
Lauren
Isabella
Katrina
Michaela
Sierra
Caryn/Karin/Karyn
Casey/Cassandra

BOY:

Lucas

Our boy name list is coming up short at the moment. Mostly I've been coming up with the girl names because I'm convinced we are having a girl. DH of course thinks it's a boy. We will be happy of course with either as long as the baby is healthy.

We would love some suggestions for boy/girl names. If you have any, post them. :)

Question of the day: If you could re-name yourself, what name would you choose?

I love Audrey. Very elegant and classy...Hepburn-ish. :-) And, she wouldn't have the situation where there are five other little girls with the same name in her class.

I have always liked the name Andrew. I would give myself that name--I love the nickname Drew.

I love the name Isabella. I also like the name Samara, eventhough it is from the movie "The Ring" :)

Ohh I love questions like this. Let's see, for a girl, I like Emma, Ella, Lola, Lauren, Isabella... basically any name that ends in "A" is going to be one that I love. I also like Dylan and Charlee for a girl. For boys, I like Lucas, Jack, Charlie and Aiden. Okay, I just realized brookem and I have a lot of the same names. Hmm. I suspect great minds think alike!

I go by 2 names Belinda and Missy some people only know me as one or the other so that has been enough for me I have never thought of wanting another :)

My friend's sister just named her twins Chloe and Lucas. How cute is that! If I were to rename myself, I would go for something old fashioned or jolie-laide like Agnes or Rosemary or Constance. For boys-- I enjoy names that would definitely get them beat up on the playground: Federico (Rico for short - ha!), Pierre and Jan (that's pronounced YAN - ha!)
