Girls list is: Allegra, Stella, Giselle, Saskia and Sadie. It's safe to say that if I have a little girl, her name will be one of those!

I love Hugh, but it's my cousin's name and he said no to Harry. Luca is taken by a family member too.


First of all, CONGRATS!

Second, that is one of the prettiest girls' lists I've seen in a while. Allegra, Giselle & Saskia are particularly stunning.

As for boys' names, I adore ADORE Leo. Other names that do it for me right now:

Evan
Theodore
Bennett
Rhys
Rhett (how I wish someone here would use this name)
Reid
Lincoln
Miles
Magnus
Evander

Just thought I'd make a token post in here. We all know it's Allegra baking away in there, no further discussion required grin.gif.
