Thanks so much for keeping me in mind! I'm worried about the spelling and people mispronouncing that name. Let me know if you think of anything else!

I'm really feeling a "Mary" name if this next baby is a girl. For DH, it must be at least somewhat Irish. For me it must be easy to read and pronouce and must be a Saint name. We've anglicized our kids names so far for that reason. Otherwise Rosaleen would totally have been Roisin. You have an interest in Irish names, right? Was it you who posted before that you like Seamus?

Anyway, we should know in March or April if it's a boy or girl. That should make the whole decision process easier. I think we're both on board with Patrick if it's a boy although DH would totally prefer Padraig or Padraic. Patrick is so common for my tastes, but it is meaningful for us nonetheless. My mom's name is Patricia and the kiddo would have a kick-a$$ patron saint to celebrate ;)

Yes, I like Irish names (Dh is Irish).
