Before our son was born we did what most parents do, we bought name books and we made lists. But, I was the one who thought of the names and made the lists, my wife basically vetoed any name she didn't like. This went on for months and then we just put it on the back burner until she gave birth to our boy. We had to give him a name before leaving the hospital so we revisited some of the names we talked about. We whittled it down to 3 names and my wife said, 'I've picked the name I like the most so if you pick the same name then that's the one. We chose Cary, not because of the venerable Cary Grant but because it's one of the least popular names around. I didn't want my son to have some stupid hipster name like Grayson or whatever other name is popular, so we went with a classic name that nobody likes and it works. You and your wife will figure it out

I strongly suggest you consult a soothesayer. Perhaps having your tarot read and your future told will help you in your quest.

Since having a baby is often really just a fun project in engineering a model human, I think it's necessary to question what you think the girl would look like. If both parents are stout, a unisex name would be especially terrible in terms of making her succeed romantically. If she's gonna be a lanky blonde, then yes maybe a unisex name over something hyper-feminine like 'Kitty' would be better.

You and I have very different ideas of fun.

Yeah, that won't ever get mispronounced EVERY SINGLE DAY OF HER LIFE. Imagine constantly correcting people with that pretentious "Um, no, it's Uh-LEESE, not Alice." I think that's exactly what this guy is trying to avoid?

I've always liked Alexis, but I suppose that's out(?). Of course, I'm the guy whose first choice for a boy's name is McLovin.

My name's Natasha... I get a lot of compliments on my name and I never feel embarrassed. (I've heard of awful names for girls like "My Tu" pronounced "Me Too", just names so long god knows how to say it.)

As I recall that didn't end so well for Remus.

that's what we called them (in utero) - doc would always refer to them as baby 'a' & baby 'b', which we felt was a little impersonal
