    I picked miranda renee because I think it sounds very classy and beautiful.

    I also picked Grant Alexander because Alexander is one of my FI’s middle name. I like how it sounds. I might take that one from you lol

    Of the girl names I think I would go with Haley Jade.  Boys are trickier.  I like Grant but think it might be getting popular.  Trying to come up with a masculine version of Renee made me think of Rhys (or Reece if you prefer).  What about Rhys David?

    ETA: My last name also starts with a M and is 5 letters, two syllables long so I just used it to test them out.  πŸ˜‰

    You do realize that the names you currently like may not be names you’ll like in 3 or 4 years.  PLUS, you said you stay away from the “Top 25” lists.  What are you going to do if the names you like are on that list in 3 or 4 years???

    ex: I originally thought “Damien” was a cute name, but I was talked out of it and I’m glad.  My son might be a little “demon” (joking!!! errr…sorta, lol) but I’m glad I didn’t name him that.  My daughter’s name is what I was going to name my son if he’d been a girl minus the name my mother wanted (confusing, I know, but true).  

    Cute names though!  But some food for thought. πŸ™‚

    @Zinzerena: I watch this boy named Damien and my Fiance always jokes around calling him Demon. I used to like that name but now it isnt my favorite anymore.

    @Mrs.KMM: I voted for Miranda Renee. I think that name is classy and not too popular. For the boys name I voted Austin Caleb. I always liked the name Austin but I think it might be rising in popularity.

    I think Ryna might be right though. In a few years they might be in the top 25 so you might want to consider that too.

    I chose Miranda Renee and Grant Alexander because to me they flow much better than the other ones. And I can see both of them as great names from baby to adult.

    @miksje130: LOL!  too funny! 

    My son’s name went from NOWHERE NEAR the top 25 to being on the top 25 for several years.  Go figure.  My daughter, fortunately, has a VERY unique first name and pretty common middle name.  But her initials are VERY unique: I.M.P. πŸ˜‰ and yes, she looks like a pixie and lives up to the initials! LOL!

    I like Miranda Renee, Austin Caleb and Grant Alexander. Jason David seems a little too plain for my taste. And, please don’t hate me for saying this, Courtney Jade and Hayley Nicole sort of sound like pornstar names to me. Lol. Maybe it’s just because of the Playboy bunny Jayde Nicole, but that’s totally what they remind me of!

    I have a friend who’s expecting a Miranda in August. πŸ™‚ 

    I think it’s such a pretty name and you don’t hear it that often. I love it!

    I feel like Grant is getting too popular.  I’m not sure why, but Courtney Jade just doesn’t seem quite right to me as a combo.  I think if you really like Jade, Hayley Jade flows better, but of course I don’t know your last name.
