Re: Do you like any of these names?

Hmm...Well, I have a Caleb and a Lucas...and a Lily! Caleb has gotten way too popular recently. I would say go for Jacob for a boy. Don't know what your religious background is, but I've always loved the story of Joshua and Caleb in the Bible. I wanted to named baby no. 4 Joshua, if the baby was a boy, but my DH said that it was too cheesy. I love it, though! Lola is such an adorable name!

Re: Do you like any of these names?

My son's name is Nicholas, too (firstborn) and my DH's name is Joshua. I love the name Hannah, too. From your list, I really like Emmett. I went to school with a boy named Emmett - nice guy and very smart.. And remember the Christmas special by the Muppets - "Emmett Otter's Holiday Jug Band" something like that.. I also like the names Lucas and Thomas and Nolan. I had never thought of Nolan before, but I do like that. For the girl's names, I like them all. Notice that both Nolan and Lola have the "ola" sound in the middle which reminds me of "hola" - Spanish for hello. Note - all your other kids names have short vowel sounds which is one way that Emmett or Thomas fit in well. Good luck choosing! And OMG - 5 kids! Bless you!!!

I am pretty sure it's a boy.
My other children are Joshua, Hannah, Madalyn and Nicholas. Our last name is pretty easy to " go " with.
Here are my idea so far in no particular order:

Caleb
Carson
Emmett
Jacob
Lucas
Nolan * this name dh likes
Thomas
Tobin * dh likes Toby, this is a version of that

For a girl I like:
Lily
Sophie
Lauren
Lola * this is my 5 year olds pick! She says it's a girl and her name is Princess Lola.

Like? Dislike? Any other ideas? Don't be shy ladies

Well I love Caleb, I think if we have another boy he would be Caleb. But out of your DH's picks I really fell for Tobin, I would call him Tobi. SO CUTE Not a huge fan of any of the girl picks (We were so pick with our girl choices while I was pg!!) But I do like Lillian and Lily for short. GL on your search....it will come to you

I love Lola, but I don't think it really goes with your other children's names. What about Laurel instead of Lauren? It's a little less common and so very feminine.

For the boys, I love Tobin!

We are having issues on boys names ourselves so I'm no help there... I am partial to Sophia...not Sophie. To me Sophie is a dog or 70 year old english woman with bad teeth eating crumpets and drinking tea with her 50 cats.
