Re: Names that DIDN'T make the cut??
For ds1 - we knew the first name right away, but for middle names we didn't know until the end. So middle names that got cut were Duilio, Mori, Giuliani. For girls name we had Natalie
For ds2 - We considered the first name Asa for awhile, and then the same middle names as above, but we didn't use any of them. For girls names we had Lailey (Laila and Lilly together, DH's pick)
Both of the girls names (we don't know the gender) we thought of last time we will not be using if this one is a girl. But on our list we have Giulietta, Maddalena, Fia, Mariella, Leora, Violetta, Gisella.
