Help me out mamas... I did a poll on this in pregnancy section a couple weeks ago, but we've crossed out a few of those and added a couple more.
Having a REALLY rough time picking a name for this belly babe...
Current kids are Laura and Carson.
What sounds best with those names?
*Carter
*Gavin (not my fav)
*Kellen (not hub's fav)
*Lincoln
*Evan
Last name rhymes with Dark and is Superman's first name.
I like Evan personally. We went rounds about our names too.

Lincoln would be my number 1 pick with Carter a close second. They were both on my name list!

I hate to be one of "those" people that says stupid things about another persons name choice... but with your last name would Lincoln be too close to Linkin Park?

Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

I must live under a rock. What is Lincoln Park? 2 people have mentioned it and I have no idea why...
My hubby is Richard (shorten that to the "dirty" version) and put it with our last name. We really wanted to name DD, Kimberly, but couldn't do that with our last name either - couldn't have her thinking we'd named her after a diaper/toiletpaper/papertowel company

We have done the don't smile thing also. Which will get us a smile, just not his good smile. #1 has a great smile in his hockey picture need to get him to give us that smile. Hoping Butch does better this year.

I have to agree with Fi. Her order is great. We haven't really discussed names, we are just making a list. A girl name has already been picked. I just threw out the name Jasper today to DH and he isn't against it. Might be a good one.

It's a park in Illinois and then a super popular rock band from Illinois took the name but changed the spelling.

We run a server in our house with 6-2TB drives set up in such a way that if one crashes then all of the information is still on the other drives.

DH is a computer programmer and does a bit of contract work so it is important to have good back ups of all the files.

That's how it is with my hubby too, if he doesn't say "no" automatically, it gets put on the list We had a girl name picked, Shelby Evelyn... but don't get to use it.

So super popular that this country girl had no clue! Maybe I can use that alone as a reason to get it OFF the list? I don't like it... don't hate it, but it's at the top of hubby's list currently.
