    I love Lucas and Grant!

    I really, really strong dislike names where you’ll always have to explain the pronounciation to people (like Leiden, sorry!) I know that if I were the kid it would drive me crazy. And people always get annoyed when people mispronounce it, and it’s like, “Hello! You’re the one who chose a spelling that doesn’t make any sense with your intended pronounciation!” Which I know can be tough because the English language is quite tricky when it comes to spelling/pronounciation, but still.

    I really like Lucas, Grant, and Enzo!  Grant is actually my current top boys name for DH’s and my future children.

    @Meowkers:  I have a list of boy and girl names in my phone and whenever I think of one I love, I write it down :). When my daughter was born, we had narrowed down my list to 2 names and picked the one that looked to fit her best 🙂

    Lucas is cute and Grant is alright. I don’t particularly care for the others.

    @Meowkers:  For what it’s worth, the name and spelling are not made up.  It’s a place name.  A city that’s very close to my heart.  That’s the way it’s spelled and pronounced.

    That definitely does mean something and change my opinion a bit then, I had just never heard it before. It is nice to have a story like that behind it. And I do know what you mean about people mis-pronouncing the simplest of names. My maiden name (which I’m somewhat iffy about putting on here, but eh, whatever, it’s not that uncommon and my pictures are already on here) was Barker and people say Baker EVERY SINGLE TIME. I really fail to see what is difficult about the ‘r’ before the ‘k’, yet pretty much every new teacher/professor, telemarketer, or doctor’s office I’ve spoken to has said it wrong.
