The first names are the ones I'm pretty set on. However, I am keeping the others for "extras" in case baby doesn't "look like" the name I originally have picked.
For a girl:
For a boy:
I found this interesting web site, which lists all of the baby names in Quebec for the past couple of years or so. Their popularity is determined by their usage frequency, and the list includes something like 8000 names in total. Lea was the most popular girl's name in 2006 - it was used 540 times in the province. Names that were only used once include Zoeylynn, Patsy, and Rose V. (Yes, Rose V. Just V.)
Here are the top 50 girls' names as well as a link to the site.
thoughts? please be kind if you have something negative to say. all of these names have some kind of meaning to me or to him. and most of these are names we have discussed, and that we both already love. i believe francesca and max are our current number ones. also, max could become maxwell, as its the only extended version of max that i even remotely like, and the boy really loves it.
colleen = my late mothers name
gray = my late mothers maiden name
kate = special to my side of the family
edward = my late grandfathers name
marguerite = his mothers name
bruno = special to his side of the family, and he has long wanted to pass it down
samuel = the boys initials are s.a.m. and since i am not wild about either his first or middle name, we have decided that samuel might be a nice alternative, a name i love
last name is still undecided, could be either a one syllable four letter name, which doubles as a color, or a two syllable french name that starts with m and ends with x (but with the "oo" sound)
thoughts? feedback? suggestions? alternatives? thank you in advance!
ETA: i forgot about ruby, just added it to the list. its a frontrunner. also added finn, esme, and sailor.
Sorry for what can undoubtedly be viewed as spammage, but I’m still trolling on the
