If I had a boy today I would call him Dominic. If I had a girl, possibly Alexandra.

Girl - Elizabeth
Boy - Julian (I always loved this name but DH wouldn't agree.  Luckily we agreed on Jude for DS, it suits him perfectly)

Edited:  Just realised that I would then have a Jude and a Julian if I did this!  I am not very good at these games am I?  Oh well, if I gave birth today it would be very odd indeed seeing as DS is only 5 months old.

I'd be really bloody shocked.

Sorry, this thread came up on the new posts sidebar with just "if you gave birth today", and I had to get it out.

Carry on. Allegra reminds me of the girl in eXistenZ
