Is it sick that I'm already considering names for my 4th child (if I even have a 4th) and I'm days/weeks away from having my third? Maybe it's just my hormones playing with me. Any one else experience this? Anyway this is my current list of favorites. Comments/Suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

Girls:
Alaina- I love this spelling...but I'm up for others. I don't like Alayna (the y is too trendy for me) and I've considered Elena...but I don't love it.
Emmeline (Em-ah-line not leen)
Caroline
Reese- As a middle name
Brighton- Yes. I know it's a boy's name. I'm totally against unisex names...but I've fallen in love with this one for a girl!!
Clara
Lydia- too close to Lilah?
Nora

Boys:
Elliot- I love this one but I'm afraid it's too close to Scarlett to ever use it. Is it??
Benjamin
Jude- Mostly for a middle name but maybe as a fn.
Cohen- too close to Caleb?
Trevor
Mitchell

Also, I've noticed all of my kid's names have an "l" in the last syllable. -lah, -leb, -lett. Should this trend be continued? Will it sound odd to have another child with a name that doesn't follow this trend? I'm thinking way to into this I know. Sorry for this was kind of a rant.

Like Alaina what about Elaina?
Emmeline is cute.
Lydia might be too close to Lilah, but I dont think Elliot or Cohen are too close to Scarlett and Caleb.
I like the name Nora but maybe as a nn to Eleanora?
I really like the names Benjamin and Jude...have you thought about Jared?

  • Interests:I love learning how and doing all of my own projects around the house. At first, my husband thought that I was crazy, now he just goes with the flow. Josh and I enjoy hanging out together either fishing, camping, geocaching, hiking or just walking the dogs. We're very active in our church and hang out with our Sunday school group a lot.

Girls:
Alaina- ehh... It's okay. I am not a fan of this spelling, my preferred spelling is Elena. Though I once had a boss named Elena who pronounced her name Elle-uh-nuh so I would be weary about pronunciation issues. I suppose Elaina would work and I prefer the E to the A. The name doesn't really do much for me though.
Emmeline (Em-ah-line not leen) - Beautiful! I like this in your sib set too.
Caroline - I don't have strong feelings for this one either way. I really dislike the potential nn Carol, though Cara is nice. I prefer Emmeline by a mile.
Reese- Not my style. Too masculine/trendy for my tastes.
Brighton- See above. Not my style at all.
Clara - Very pretty. Sweet and simple.
Lydia- Too close to Lilah for siblings imo. I think it is a beautiful name though.
Nora - This was my grandmothers name so it is special for me. I personally think some of your other names are better matched with your existing childrens names though.

Favorites: Emmeline & Clara

Boys:
Elliot- It isn't terribly bad with Scarlett but if it bothers you I would stay away from it. For me personally they are too close for siblings. Do you like Ellis or Elias?
Benjamin - I like it but it is rather on the boring side. Safe, predictable. Still a nice name though. I would suggest Bennett but this is too similar in sound to Scarlett.
Jude- LOVE! Fantastic name. I think it works great in your set too.
Cohen- Not really too close to Caleb but it would really stick out in your set. Your children have more classic names and this is imo trendy. I don't like it at all.
Trevor - See Cohen. Not my style at all.
Mitchell - Again this doesn't work in your set imo. Mitchell is dated and too different style wise for me.

Favorites: Jude** & Benjamin

Also, I've noticed all of my kid's names have an "l" in the last syllable. -lah, -leb, -lett. Should this trend be continued? Will it sound odd to have another child with a name that doesn't follow this trend? - I wouldn't let this sway your name choices.
