    I figured that since there was thread about silly baby names, I would start one about cute and unique baby names. We have no idea what we want to name our child and although we have time, I know we are going to struggle with it.
    We both know we want something unique, as our names are a little different
    Shea (Shay) and Trace. We obviously don't want anything like Apple or Moses, but something a little different.

    So, I thought you girls could help us or others out by posting your favorite baby names for girls or boys....

          Congratulations Shea! You're only like 2 weeks behind me :)

          We also want something a little "different" or at least something that they won't have 5 other kids in their class with the same name...

          Our current faves:
          Boy: Corbin, Jude, and Xander (short for Alexander)
          Girl: Annika, Norah, Lucy (short for Lucia) and Sylvia

            It's kind of a personal thing, so what I consider to be cute and unique you may not agree with, but here are some that I like:

            Girls:
            Romy
            Ione (pronounced I-o-nee)
            Addison

            Boys:
            Mal (Malcolm)
            Brogan
            Brock
            Drake
            Bennett
            Tiernan

            I'd really recommend this book called The Baby Name Wizard by Laura Wattenberg.
            Of all the baby name books out there, this one I find to be really fun to look through. It has Sister and Brother sections, so that each name will also have compatible (like-typed) brother and sister options. It also has a cool section at the back for Types/Categories, like the following (there are way more, each with a huge list):

            Brisk and Breezy: Bree, Blair, Dale, etc.
            Bell-Tones: Ainsley, Ashlyn, Haylee, etc.
            Guys and Dolls: Emmy, Addie, Josie, Harry, Mack, etc.
            Lacy and Lissome: Acadia, Alina, Brianna, Dania, etc.
            Last Names First: Archer, Bailey, Cooper, Dexter, etc.
            Nickname-Proof: Amber, Audrey, Devin, Dallas, etc.
            Fanciful: Aeron, Bliss, Allure, Everest

                I read this book took! It was funny because allot of my friend's kids and their siblings matched. I found it helpful.
