Baby Center just released (or-re-released) a list of the top 100 baby names of 2011. At the top of the boys' list is Aiden, Jackson, Mason and Liam. Ruling the girls' list for now is Sophia, Emma, Isabella and Olivia.
I like all of these. I do. But for some reason, I want something a little different--not too different, though. I mean, Blue IV or Blue Ivy (I could deal with Ivy Blue)? Really?
But hey, names are personal. Not everyone is going to like what you choose and you're not going to fall in love with what your friends might decide to name their children. You just have to pick something you love. And that hopefully your child will love, or grow to love, too.
Here's what we're thinking at the moment:
Esme Lady (Esme is French and means "to love." Lady is Kadin's mom's nickname.)
Loucette Lady (Loucette, a variation of Lucette, is also French and means "little light.")
Zadie Alice (We just like the name Zadie and Alice is a variation of Kadin's mom's name.)
We also like: Willa, Indra, Izola, Isla, Estee, Vida and Zola.
What do you like? Should a name have meaning or just be something you like? Do you prefer something different or more traditional?
