name suggestions...

Our new baby is due in a few weeks, and we are still stuck without a name.

Anyone want to help give suggestions?

Our 4 y/o dd has the name Tessa, we love it! It is sweet and spunky like her, with a classic undertone (reminds me of a character in a 1930's novel or something, or an author's name).

We don't know the baby's gender, so we are looking for both. Oh and our last name starts with a "hard C".

Some names that we like, but maybe don't agree on are:

boy: Gavin (we both like but DH isn't sold on), Noah, Kruz (dh likes possibly), Anthony (I like)

girl: Katelynn (we both like but aren't sold on), Megan, Stephanie (DH likes, me kind of).

So, anyone have any ideas of names that would be similar to the style of "Tessa"?

I was going to say Jack for a boy too. I think that goes great with Tessa and is doable with a "c" last name. Maybe "Brooks"?

Thanks for the suggestions. I love the name Jack, but we have two in the family already (crazy I know), We also have two "Zane"s. We think we have found a girl name we like, still looking for a boy name.

What about Andrew or Charles or mark.

You could always try to use your hubby's initials for the name.

We had a girl & we found a first name we agrees on then she got my middle name.
For a boy we were going to give it my husbands first name that him & his dad share then the middle name was going to start with the same letter as his.

Re: name suggestions...

I was going to suggest Kate before I even saw your list. Similar to Katelyn
I have a Megan so I'm partial to that.
Elsie
Claire

Harrison
Henry/Harry
I like the Gavin on your current list best.

Re: name suggestions...

I know an 8 year old Tessa, and her little brother is Jacob, but gets called Jake.

Tessa and Jake, I think they go really well together
