    Ericson makes me think of the telecom company Ericsson. 

    I’m not sure I love Sequoia for a girl, because Sequoias are really big, fat trees… I mean, there’s a lot that’s wonderful and beautiful about them, of course, but I’m just thinking it might backfire. 

    I like Harrison and Lila. If you name your son River, he has to be hot to pull it off. πŸ™‚ Cedar I’m not so hot on, but if it’s your style, it’s cool. It’s easy to spell and pronounce.

    Sequoias are beautiful, but for the rest if her life she will have to spell it multiple times, for everyone, and they will still get it wrong. Shame, too, I like the way it sounds.

    I like Harrison and Lila the best, but I do wonder if Harrison will flow well with an “S” last name.

    I like Harrison and Lila the best.  But I have to ask – are you a Dexter fan by any chance?

    I chose Harrison because it sounds like a strong man’s name.  I also picked River I’ve always liked that name for a boy.  No offense but I have never heard of Cedar for a name and it think its a little out there.  Plus when I saw “Cedar” next to “River” in the choices I had to chuckle because I live next to the Cedar River :).

    For girl I do like the name Sequoia but I think its a little too popular and overdone.  In my daughters class there are like 3 Sequoia’s and they go to a small school, only one class of 1st graders and there’s like 20 in the class.  So I chose Lila which I love and is close to the name Layla which I want to name my next girl (not that we’re having anymore but you never know πŸ™‚ ).

    I’m a huge fan of nicknames (I don’t have one and always wanted one) so I wish your names had good nickname potential. River, Cedar and Sequoia all sound a bit hippy, IMO.

    I liked Harrison and Lila the best.

    Lila is a book I have by Roberty Pirsig.  So… yeah.

    I like Harrison- I think it is a wonderful, very strong name.  I also like Cedar- but for a girl.  (I know a girl/ woman named Cedar, but Darling Husband did know a guy named Cedar growing up.)

    Harrison and Lila are the only names I don’t hate.
