I am 15 weeks with my 4th baby.  We don't know what the sex is and haven't decided if we'll find out yet so we need both girls and boys names.

I have 3 daughters - Amelia, Maleika and Kiara.  

I like names that are a little different.  Not unheard of but not common (Amelia didn't seem common when she was born.  She's 13 now)

At the moment, Piper tops the girls list and is pretty much a certainty.  

Boys names we are totally stuck with.  Tossed around the names Braxton and Emmett but neither have stuck yet.  

Considering using Tex as a middle name if it's a boy.  My husband's a proud Texan.

Melvin
Lincoln
Jensen
Jaebin
Jethro
Griffin
Fletcher
Spencer
Cormac
Austin
Baxter
Barton
Bryson
Brennan
Bronson
Carsten
Callahan
Eldon
Esben

I like Emmett tremendously.

Tex is a nickname you get given, to me anyway. I've known a few people called Tex but none were legally named Tex.

Names that feel cowboy-ish to me or that my Aussie husband decried as "too American"
Samuel - as in Colt and Houston. wink.gif
Austin
Wyatt
Levi
Jesse
Jethro

Of those, I admit Wyatt doesn't work at all with Emmett, but I think Levi/Jesse/Jethro do?

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
