My wife and I just found out that we are pregnant, and I would like suggestions for boy and girl names. Thanks!

Congratulations!

Choosing names for online people is kind of difficult to do since we don't know your real last name and names should flow or be catchy.

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

Congratulations!

I agree with seashelly on the difficulty of naming via the net.

Google "kabalarian" and go crazy. I'm sure you'll find something "just right".

Thanks Seashelly, I love those names, especially Zoe. We love Isabella if she's a girl, but are stuck on a boy's name. My last name is Nolasco. I think it's either French or Spanish. Oh and my first born is named Nicholas, if that helps.

Well darn, just visited the website I mentioned, and their name-data base is now "subscription". Not affiliated with the group in any way, shape or form, they just used to have an extensive list of names, along with background info.

I like Isabella. Sounds *great* with your last name. Really rolls of the tongue nicely.

I've always like Xavier for boys, but he'll have to teach people how to pronounce his name for the rest of his life (there are several accepted pronunciations).

Congratulations!! When is the due date? I was named after both my grandmothers and that has always been special to me. Maybe a family name??
My favorite girl name is Elizabeth and for a boy I like Daniel, but I really think it's neat when family names are used.

Plaidmom: You're right about Xavier. Everytime I try to give you rep points they tell me to spread them around first.

I Love North Carolina: Thank you. The due date is 8/23/07. I haven't thought of using family names. I will consider.

Well if it's a girl Nicole goes good with Nicholas, at least I think so

Congrats!

My favorites are:

Juliana, Maxine, Christopher & Giovanni.

Whatever you choose, keep in mind kids can be mean and make fun of him or her because of the name. My first name is Mary Ann and I had to hear Gilligan Island jokes my whole life and my last name is similiar to a type of food, so you can imagine the joking I've had to deal with. (still do)
