I am writing to you for help. I am scheduled for a c-section with our second child 03/16/2011- a GIRL! We already have a son, Lincoln Thomas. My husband and I are having a very difficult time in choosing a name for this little one. With our son, we had a few names chosen prior to his delivery, but didn't name him until we saw him. And his name we chose was actually vetoed off our list prior to him getting here.
Names we currently have on our list (and it's a short one) are Charlotte, Ramsay, Abigail, and McKinley. MIddle name will most likely be Marie. Our last name is 2 syllables- starts with N and ends in 'stat.'
Other names we had on our list that have been removed for one reason or another were:
Mathilda- Husband HATES this
Audrey- have 2 nieces named Avery, thought this might be too similar
Few rules/restrictions we do have:
1.) Can't be someone in the family with the name.
2.) Don't want anything TOO trendy- we don't want her to be one of 6 in her class
3.) Really trying to stay away from the presidential theme. We did originally think it would be cute, but are now reconsidering- which is why we're not really sold on McKinley.
Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated!! I'm at my wit's end and just want to have a name for this baby!!!

I know this post is MONTHS past, but we ended up naming our baby girl Charlotte Marie. Perfect for her, and sounds great with Lincoln. We get compliments on their names everywhere we go.
Thanks so much for all the input. :)
