I'm 8 weeks away from having bubs #3 and struggling with names.

We already have: Braedan Nicholas & Elysia Gloria (middle names are family related).

Our list so far:

Boy:
Riley
Jamie
Joshua

Girl:
Paige
Caitlin(still not 100% on the spelling).

Haven't thought of middle names but most probably have a family connection as well..

So hit me with your suggestions...

I like James NN Jamie, and don't mind Joshua but it's too popular for me. Really dislike Riley.

I like Caitlin but not Paige so much.

All your listed names are fine IMO with the exception of Jamie. I don't mind it but it's a bit 'lightweight'.


Suggestions:

Rylan

or

Maeve
