I've got what is probably a weird question about names, lol.

When I was pg with my DS, my DH and I came up with a girl's name that we both really liked almost right away. It wasn't until we found out that DS was a boy at the 20 week ultrasound that we came up with his name (Sean Alexander). Until that point we just couldn't agree on a boy's name.

I love Aislynn, I haven't seen that spelling of it before and I like it. . I think if you still love it, stick with it, but if you are feeling unsure no reason you can't keep looking. If you find something else you like better...great, if you don't, well you still have something you love. :)

I would stick with the first girl name.

I say stick with the first name, if this little one isn't a girl I'm gonna save the name I have for baby number three if its a girl

I knew that whether we ended up adopting from China or having a biological child, her name would be Olivia. I would have used it eventually no matter how long I had to wait. However, if you're no longer feeling the love for it, ditch it and start over. At least you have a fall back name if you can't agree on anything else.

Personally, I would do both.

I'd stay with the original girl's name you chose. Aislynn is very pretty too! I have a student in one of the gymnastics classes I teach that spells her name Aislinn, very close.

I had an original name for a girl too (Elena, pronounced El-ay-na) but had my son and named him Ian. I would use Elena this time if this baby was a girl, but now I've remarried and my stepdaughter's name is Alonna (pronounced Ah-lon-ah) so I think those names are just TOO close to sounding the same!
