What do you think of Amelia (nickname Emmy)?

How about Simon? (My mom would KILL me, she can't stand that name. )

I really liked Ben, Billy totally nixed it. This boy LOOKS like a Ben... Grrr. Billy likes Ewan... Hmmm....


Be honest, I can take it. The boy's name must end in "N" and the girl's in an "A" (My dh is WEIRD....)

Billy's choices are Monica and Ewan.... Don't know where he got Monica from...

Gotta be honest, I don't like Ewan. I'm not even sure the corect way to pronounce it and I'm usually good with names.

I like Ben ALOT, and Simon. Amelia is pretty, but I'm not sure how you get Emmy from that. For some reason I think Amy? That can't be right. Must be the meds I'm on.

Ignore me. I'm fairly doped up at the moment.

I like Amelia and Ben. Lauren's best friend that moved to Colorado was Amelia.

I don't like Amelia. Sorry! I am the odd woman out. But I also don't like Monica. I love the name Ben, but I don't like Ewan.
Simon is not bad, but I like Ben better.
Sorry, I don't think I was any help, but whatever you name them, CONGRATULATIONS!

Sorry, Monica reminds me of Monica Lewinsky. Not a good foot to start out on. Simon and Ben are both nice names. What middle names did you have in mind?

Congratulations!

Thanks y'all! The reason why I can't use Ben is that's Billy's half brother's name... That he's met TWICE.... Grrrr....

I thought of the Lewinsky thing too....

I like Amelia too, very cute.
Austin had a little girl in his class named Amelia, but she went by Lia (leah)

I like Simon too, but don't care for Ewan for the simple fact that kids might stretch it out to be Ewwwwwwwan (you know how horrible kids can be at times.)

but my opinion doesn't matter---- CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
