Anything but Dorothy! wink.gif

Give us something more to work with...

Do you like classic names? Names that are a bit more unusual?

Do you like names that have natural nicknames?

I'm sure the Name Nerd Crew (incl. me) would be happy to pass along some suggestions!

Congrats on your impending arrival.

We like new trendy names I guess but nothing that's over the top. Even some traditional names with a bit of a modern feel to them. We also like names that you can shorten like an example cooper we can call it coop. (but it doesn't have to be shortened it's just a preference. Thanks
