    I like Mila and Milo. I only know one Mila so I think it’s pretty unique!

    Your first three girl names are some of my favorites! I can’t pick between them. If you have a longer last name, then I think just Max is fine for a boy.

    Melithehoneybee:  I’ve always considered Vivienne for if we ever have a child and it happens to be a girl.

    I love Vivienne. Mila is pretty too, but I think Vivienne has a timeless elegance to it that I am drawn to.

    Melithehoneybee: I feel like I could have written almost the same post, but from a Swedish perspective! We’re also team green for now, but it will be Vivianne if we have a daughter. Works both in English and Swedish, which is a must. Funny enough, Milan is a family name on my husbands’ side so I’ve joked and said we could add Mila in case he feels it’s very important to stick with the name. Then we’ve also discussed Lilian. Mostly because we celebrate name days in Sweden, and Lilians name day fall on the 6th of September, which is the day I landed in Canada 7 years ago (we celebrate this, because it means that we eventually meet and feel in love).

    As for boys… so much harder, but we’ve discussed Tor (classic Swedish name). My husband would want to spell it Thor though, to make it a little bit more North American. We shall see… but a girl would definitely be easier from a naming perspective!

    Anyway, for you – if the Latin connection is very important I would go with Valentina. If not so important, well a version of Vivianne is obviously the most beautiful name I’ve been able to think of! 🙂

    Melithehoneybee:  I also like your top pick for a girl, MILA! If you want to stick with Hispanic names for boys, what about Emilio? I have a friend named Emilio, and he is awesome. I do really love Milo, but what if you had a girl later on and wanted to name her Mila?

    I like Mila, but I just think it is more common.  I realize it’s not “trendy” per se, but I feel like it’s just less unique.  It also sounds adorable for a little girl, but I have a harder time envisioning a professional woman named Mila once she’s an adult.  I think that’s really important, because a lot of girl names that people are giving to their daughters these days sound overly cutesy.  I love Valentina, and I think if you are set on having something uncommon, it’s probably the best bet.  I actually might “steal it” if my boyfriend likes it!  I am in the minority apparently, but I just don’t like Vivienne.  

    For boys, I like Valentino and Milo.  I know someone who just named her baby Milo, so you may want to check on its popularity.

    I love Valentina!  So pretty.  For a boy, I love Max… I think I’d try to use one of the longer versions (I like Maxwell) but I think you could also just do Max.  Kind of like naming your son John and not Johnathan…. guessing people do that, right?
