    So we still are unsure of the sex of the baby. Maybe we will find out on Thursday during the ultrasound(that would be awsome). Until then though I am trying to keep my mind busy to not get overly stressed about the appointment so I thought I would see what you guys thought of our names that we are considering. For a girl we know we are using this for sure.

    Girl:
    Serenity Rose

    For a boy we are still coming up with ideas but we are considering this one:
    Nico Owen

    What do you guys think of it? I know it sounds different and we like different. If you guys have any interesting ideas or matches to either of those names let me know.

    When I heard the name Serenity I fell in love with it right away and Rose just seemed to fit too.

    We are considering Nico Owen because this is what they mean:
    Nico - Italian - Victory of the People
    Owen - Irish - Young Fighter

    He is defiantely a fighter already so the meanings of both fit so nicely.

    PMing you now

    Is there a reason you're going with Rose? It definitely doesn't scream "different" to me... definitely popular :)

    Nico reminds me of Nicomedes and Gaius Julius Caesar. But I don't think many people are history buffs like me, so you should be safe with that.

    I love the name Rose, too, although it is very popular, as with Serenity Rose. Not different, if that's what you are looking for. Pretty, though.

    Don't know if you've come by this site yet, but it's quite helpful in finding names, their meanings, and origins. http://www.behindthename.com/

    We just liked how it seemed to blend smoothly with the first name. Then we found out a dear friend of Dougs the middle name of Rose is very important and used usually for the first daughter in their family. He loved that. So Rose was it.

    Yup go there to check out meanings when we like something. Very helpful. Around here Serenity is a very unusual name. I have never met anyone with that name. And the meaning is important too. Rose is popular though but fits nice.

    serenity is not that common here either. Rose is fairly common.. but i agree, it does flow with serenity.

    I usually avoid names that are also adjectives (serenity, prudence, grace) because the kids tend to spend their whole lives trying to do the opposite or people assuming they are a certain way because of it..that kind of thing. I once knew a girl named Prudence.. umm..we won't get into that lol let's just say she was NOT like her name.

    That aside,I really like Nico! Umm..I've always liked the name Tristan for boys and Jillian for girls :)
    I love that you guys are choosing middle names.. those are very useful if your parents are REALLY MAD and need to use your whole name.

    My middle name is Primrose.. it doubles as a kind of nickname.. my mom is the only one who calls me Prim, which is special.
