Baby boy #3 will be here any day.  The other two boys' names are Max Joseph and Mason John.  The first name does not necessarily need to be an "M" name. The whole family has a "J" middle name, so that will stay the same.  Here are the two options:Maddon JamesLogan JackHusband really likes "Maddox" but it sounds too close to Max, so we came up with Maddon and both like it.  Nicknames could be "Maddy" or "Mad Man"  Logan is a strong name, flows well with Max and Mason and we really like the...

We're team green and having our 5th baby in 7 weeks. We have 3 boys (Troy, Blake and Austin) and 1 daughter (Briella). For a boy I like Cody and a girl I like Talia or Natalia. My husband doesn't like anything! He's making it very difficult. Anyone have any suggestions I can bring to the table?

Hello!My wife and I have agreed on a baby girl's name, but we disagree strongly on the spelling. Our child will be Italian American and have my Italian surname, and therefore, I prefer Giulia. Also, my wife and I both have names that start with G, so I think it would be neat if our daughter's name started with G too. My wife is strongly opposed to Giulia but is 100% on board with Julia. She argues that people will not be able to pronounce Giulia, and my surname is difficult enough as it is....

We are 13 weeks with baby number 3!  We have an Anna Rose, who is 4 (Aka) Annie, and Wyatt James will be 2 soon. If we have a boy his name will be Luke Henry. If we have a girl her name will be Grace, but I'm having a hard time nailing down a middle name for her, can you help? We have a very long 8 letter 4 syllable last name that starts with Att ends with RY. We plan to call her "Gracie" 95% of the time, so 1 syllable is completely fine with us. We like Gracie Lynn, -grandma's middle name my...

Baby #2 will be little sister to June Marie (goes by June or Junie for the most part).  Last name is 3 syllables, starts with W and ends with burg. Last name also has an L in for syllable so names like Lily, Ella, Lillian do not work for us unfortunately. Looking for thoughts on our list, as well as possible middle names that would go.Camille (love this but would die inside if kid's nn was Cami -- would be ok with nn Cam, Mil, Millie)Grace JosieMn's:Louise(that's it so far) Thanks ladies! : )

The hottest nicknames of today sound like yesterday. Even as the familiar, everyday nicknames that parents grew up with disappear, a new set of quirky-cute throwbacks is rising. A newborn boy today is more likely to receive the given name Gus than Mike, Dave, or Tom. For girls, Sadie is more popular than Kate, Kim or Jessie…or, for that matter, Katherine, Kimberly or Jessica. Looking for more new-old ideas? The options are surprisingly plentiful. The early 20th Century was a nickname...

my grandfather's name was Lester, I don't want to use the full name because it opens a world of bullying. He went by Les, never Lester. It's very early, but if current baby is a boy I would like to incorporate "Les" into the middle name. Would it sound ok as a stand alone MN with a longer first name? Last name starts with B and rhymes with "rain". Two syllables.

Names are comedy gold. Using a personal name instead of a generic pronoun can instantly make a joke more evocative, more relatable, more specific and, paradoxically, more universal. In a drive-by medium like one-liners or Twitter, adding so much texture with a single word is priceless. Comedians know it, too. See how the name works in a bit like this: *Wife blows me a kiss from across the room* *I pretend to catch it* *I walk over to the window and toss it outside* "Grow up Karen" — GoaT FacE...

Here's a name puzzler: which of these is a unisex baby name? LeslieAshtonMonroeKosisochukwuSalem  It's a more complicated question than it may seem. • Leslie was long considered unisex in the U.S. and masculine in Australia and Britain (Lesley was the feminine spelling), but it has fallen out of use for boys. • Ashton is a surname that became a male given name, then turned unisex, and is now mostly male again. • Monroe was a purely male name of a century ago that has recently resurfaced as a...

Popular names like Audrey and Lauren have managed to toe the line, but their widespread use can be off-putting. Here’s a list of fourteen names that fit this elegant style without feeling overly trendy: both refreshing and refined, these names are bound to make an...

My targets were the names that define the unique style of every state in the union....
