I picked Maren. I like Emeline but to me it is too much like the ever-so-popular Emma. Emy is a cute nickname though.

I like Eve better than Eden but I was upset that I didn't get to name DD Eve because she was born on Christmas Eve and I like the biblical connotations as well.

I'm curious, what are the negative biblical references of Eden?

Re: Girl Names - Hopefully later than sooner

I like Emy and Lauren! Very classic names...makes me think of "Little Women", my favorite story! No more PTL, though!

ETA: Um, yea...wondering about the negative biblical reference of Eden, too. Maybe because she ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and was the first sinner?

ETA AGAIN: OMG, I'm such a dork! I was thinking "Eve" instead of "Eden"! Duh. FWIW, I like the name Eden, too.

Um, how can it be negative? Eden means Delightful. It reminds me of beauty because the garden of Eden.

Re: Girl Names - Hopefully later than sooner

Thanks Ladies:

Orginally I wanted Maren - I had a student a long time ago with that name and (my mom is Mary and my sister is Erin) kinda of combo. name to my two favorite ladies, but DH thinks it is cheesy that I made that connection. So it isn't his top name.

Anna, and Lauren are ones that we together both like.

Emeline I like and I don't really know why

Eden was the little naughty girl on Super Nanny last night

I like Emeline, but isn't Emmy/Emma in the top 5-10 still?
I wasn't keen on Eden.
