Here's my suggestions anyway, since it's a girl Zoe or Piper.

Awesome choice!!!! I have a Zoe (love the name, everyone always compliments us).

I like Jewish or Christian names, not sure if there is a difference, since I'm not religious. I like traditional, I like that it will last a lifetime. Hate trendy!! Read all my posts, Gizmo, and tell me what you think!!
No problemo. I think Zoe is a gorgeous name, and while it was trendy for a while, I still think it's timeless - without being too common. Christian is a very nice & strong name, but obviously not one I'd personally choose. Only thing to consider is that he'll be called Chris, which is extremely popular b/c of Christopher. I love Isabella, though it's a bit over-used in recent years. Your name is really beautiful, and actually one I've considered for my future children. It's quite popular among Jewish families, so I knew a lot of Joshuas growing up. Another good Biblical name is Daniel, which is my brother's... he goes by Dan now, but was called Danny as a child.

Ummmm... what else?? How about Jason, William, Samuel, Benjamin or Jonah/Jonas? Those are all solid & traditional names, that should never go out of style. A few of them are a bit common, but they're still very nice! In Jewish tradition, we're encouraged to use the names of ancestors... never living relatives, though, as that's considered a bad omen (because Angel of death may get confused & take the child). But maybe you could consider a family name, whether living or dead? If my grandmother is no longer around when I have kids, I'll probably use Rose as my daughter's middle name. "Sabrina Rose" would be my first pick for a girl.

P.S. Here's a great name site, where you can narrow them down by a number of categories - http://tools.oxygen.com/babynamer/ (broken link) (hit "search" on the side menu, to get the advanced search options)

My sister had a baby a year ago. She and her husband named her Emma Rose. Rose is my mom's middle name and was my grandmother's name. I like the name Tucker for boys. Congratulations!

It depends on your last name. The two have to work together and also think of all nicknames that can be made from initials and or abbreviations of whatever you are considering. Whatever names you think of, remember they have to be appropriate when your child is an adult. Tabitha is cute as a child but sounds too ootsie cutsie as an adult ( sorry to any Tabithas out there). I chose my kids names on these things and also what the names mean. Congrats and best of luck.

My daughters name is Tiffany, but I also like Emma, my great Grandmothers name, Tristen, Autumn, Summer, and Faith for girls.
Boys names would be Seth, Triston, Landon, Dale after my brother, or Justin, and last of all Joshua

That is so important to remember! Too many people these days choose "cutesy" names, which might not work as an adult... no offense to anyone, but I just think it would be weird to meet a CEO named McKayla. Maybe it will be considered an adult name for that generation, but I'd rather go with a more classic one. As for Tabitha, I actually had a cat with that name once, and we called her "Tabby"... I also associate it with Bewitched, lol. Of course, my favorite name is Sabrina, so you could say that has a witchy meaning too. (though I actually got it from the Audrey Hepburn movie)

FYI, here is the top list for 2006, according to Babynames.com (their personal data)... interesting list!! There are some nice ones on there, and I highlighted my personal favorites.

RANK MALE FEMALE
1 AIDAN/AIDEN/ADEN AVA
2 CADEN/KADEN ABIGAIL
3 BRADEN/BRAYDEN/BRAEDEN CAILYN/KAELYN
4 JADEN/JAYDEN MADISON
5 ETHAN EMMA
6 CONNOR/CONNER ISABELLA
7 ADDISON BAILEY
8 RILEY CHLOE
9 CALEB OLIVIA (Olivia will most likely be my future niece's name)
10 LOGAN HANNAH
11 HAYDEN ISABELLE/ISABEL
12 DYLAN GRACE
13 NOAH ELLA
14 AVERY ABBY/ABBIE
15 JACOB CADENCE
16 RYAN ALEXIS
17 CAMERON TAYLOR
18 ALEXANDER PAIGE
19 AARON HAILEY/HALEY/HAYLEY
20 TRISTAN EMILY

I can't believe Kaelyn is 3rd on the list... my friend has a daughter (7 years old) with that name, spelled exactly the same way!! And she thought it was so creative, lol. While I'm on that subject, her other daughters are named Karmen, Kiana & Kaiya - way too cute, huh?
