Don’t have kids and most likely won’t even start TTC for another year. But my husband is working late and I’m bored. ALL OPINIONS WELCOME!
Girls – Lena (pronounced LEE-NUH) or Jessa
(NOTE – my real name is NOT Jemma/Gemma so no mother-daughter duo of Jemma and Jessa because that would be weird. And, my neice is named Leah. The Mom said she doesn’t care if she has a cousin named Lena).
Boys – Conrad, Charlie, or Calvin
(NOTE – Conrad is a family LAST name. Charlie’s given name would probably be Charles so he can decide what he wants to go by when he’s older. But we will call him Charlie. And Calvin, just because I kind of like it)

I like both Lena and Jessa, but she’ll go through life correcting everyone with Lena. For example, you want it pronounced LEE-NUH but I know a LAY-NUH and I’m sure someone will come up with something else, like LEN-NUH. Jessa reminds me of the Duggars, which isn’t a good or bad thing, but just thought I would throw it out there. Jessa is not a common name in my area.
I like the three boys names too. Conrad reminds of me of ABC’s Revenge (the show). Charlie and Calvin are more common and between the two, I slightly prefer Calvin more.

Lena and Charlie
But for me I would make it Charlie and no Charles becaue the name on my birth certificate is Katherine but I am Kate. Katherine is just the name I have to put on offical documents and its so annoying thinking oh I cant write Kate on this form or somethings I have to write Katherine (Kate) so people know what my actual name is but hopefully they will call me by the name I get called everyday. FI is kinda the same with Pete/Peter but he still introduces himself to people as Peter. So anyway what I was trying to say it depends if you use both names!

I love Jessa and Charlie. Calvin reminds me of Calvin & Hobbs, and Lena will be getting popular pretty soon.

Lena and Conrad.
I have a negative association with Jessa but it is a pretty name if I try to forget about her. 🙂

I’m the opposite of MrsB1015… I have a negative association with the name Lena so I prefer Jessa. =)
As for the boy names, I like all three! But I think Calvin is my favorite.

I really like Jessa. The name Tessa is on our list as well as Chessa. I have always liked the name Charlie also.
