I already have 2 girls, Katerina and Layla. We are thinking we want to stay on the green team for this one. For Boys names so far we have: Gavin or Nicholas Speros. I also like Atticus, I would like a Greek name if it is a boy! Hubby likes Cullen but I am not crazy about it! Girls names all we have is Sophia so far. Just wondering if anyone already has names picked out yet?

I have a William, named after hubby's uncle and my grandfather, and he's always been Will or William. Billy is NMS and altogether too common. Same with our Mary Elizabeth. She's Libby. Mary is always used in conjunction with Elizabeth and only when she's in trouble. :)

We knew a Hank way-back-when and that's why hubby doesn't prefer it. I get that, because there are names that I couldn't name our child because of past associations. But, everyone else will call him Sam, so I don't see how it will matter too much if I call him Hank. It's just a lovely boy's name, and like you said, not too common (though more now than years ago, I think).

Two 4.0s named Hank? I LOVE it!!! :)

I think Hank is so very sweet. And while Henry is common, you don't hear Hank a lot. Just like William/Billy.

Lola has my heart. I've always loved the name, and in every previous pregnancy, Tom didn't. But this time, when we asked the kids what we should name baby 4.0, and Jolie shouted "Lola!" suddenly he was on board :) Wrapped around his finger much? Haha!

Lola is very cute.

Hank is my most favorite name ever. I'm hoping that I can get hubby on board and use Henry for the mn if we have a boy (and I just have a gut feeling that we will). I'll be the only one to call him Hank, but I don't care. :)

We have had our girl's name picked out forever (well, we had it for our first, but then we ended up using a different name, also a family name): Clara Mae (Clara is my great-grandmother, Mae is DH's grandmother).

No we're not finding out. I can't wait for that moment! Last time, we didn't find out, and I just knew it was a boy, and it was. So it was still a big moment, but this time will be even bigger bc I think it's a girl, and Tom thinks its a boy. Exciting stuff! That will be great for you guys to hang on to the moment!

And you're not finding out what you're having right? That will be a really fun surprise. I don't think we're going to find out either. This may be our very last baby. I really want that, "its a ...." moment in the delivery room :-)

Thank you! I can totally see it too. The little knit hat, te squishy, fresh newborn skin, the little eyes gazing up as I whisper, "hi, baby Hank." it feels so good to have a boys name set in stone and adored as much as our girls name.

Sophia for a girl, kind of thinking Jacob for a boy. My ex likes Payton for a boy though, not sure I do...

We've settled!

Lola (no middle name yet) for a girl.
Henry Basilone (Hank) for a boy.

I am over the moon. Now to wait for August!
