    I voted for Jacob and Charlotte, and Caleb is a close second on boys!

    I decided awhile ago that in order to not drive myself crazy with names, (because there are SO many that are great!) I would pick names with Scottish and Irish heritage, (DH and I both have it in our families) and family names.

    @sugarpea:  Septimus? It sounds like an infection.  

    Jacob and fletcher are nice.

    Hudson and Colton – too trendy and annoying.  Also makes me think of the Stetson man riding through Central Park in the snow – you know that commercial they used to air?

    I also loathe the name Caleb.  I know some people who decided it would be just oh so klever and yooounique to spell it with a K – Kaleb.  Horrible.  

    All the girls names are okay although I’m not crazy about Clara or Amelia.

    Septimus is the name generally given to the 7th child (probably because after 7 kids, it’s get a little difficult to agree on a name.)  That’s a difficult name to carry in this day and age.

    I’m not a fan of any of the boy names really.  But I am loving all of the girl names though.

    Sometimes it’s easier to agree on a name when you’re actually looking at your baby for the first time.  They just look like a certain name.

    Septimus is an awesome name. Then again, I have a PhD in Classics and love the death out of Latin.

    @sugarpea:  Thank you for taking my comments in stide.  When I read Septimus, I just immeiately thought of sepsis.  Not a great association.  Plus, its a little awkward to say and just isn’t pleasing to the ear.  Use your veto power on that one.

    I also like Charlotte quite a bit.  Its charming.

    Oh dear, Septimus immediately made me think of septic.  I really like Caleb and Juliette.  Juliette is a top contender for me right now.

    Charlotte is beautiful but a little too popular for my liking nowadays.

    @sugarpea:  We have the same taste in girl names!  Charlotte, Juliette, Liliana and Violet are all on our list too! 

     

    As PP said, Charlotte is getting a little popular, so we will probably name our first girl Juliette (this is the name I voted for).

     

    I voted Colton for a boy. 

    ETA: Our favorite boy names are Julian, Preston, Mason (love it!…but oh so popular…), and Wesley.

    Corrigan for a boy, Patricia for a girl. Keeping it traditional. 

     

    Charlotte is a beautiful name, and Fletcher and Hudson are my faves for the boys!

    It’s interesting, your girl names are more traditional than your boy names. Many times it’s the opposite!

    I love all of your girl names. For the boys, I really only like Jacob, maybe Caleb, but my tastes are traditional. I’m not hugely into surname-sounding first names for boys (e.g., Fletcher), unless it was actually a surname in your family that died out somewhere along the family tree. Very much not a fan of Septimus – as someone else said, it has an association with ‘septic’ and I can’t really imagine good nick-names coming out of it (Septi?)

    I chose Caleb and Charlotte. I’ve ALWAYS loved the name Charlotte and I definitely wanted to name my child that, if I had a girl. FI and I are years away from TTC, but I brought up the name the other day and he says he HATES it. Not just dislikes it, but HATES it. So sad!!!! Hopefully you’ll get to use it, since I won’t.

    Not a fan of Septimus or Hudson.  I know two baby Hudons born this year.   I love Charlotte, but it’s becoming very popular too.
