Baby names for girls and boys... suggestions and your favorite?

Ok... this is my 4th and last child. My oldest is 16 years old and currently my youngest is 2 1/2 years old. My children are all girls and their middle names are all taken after a grandparent who has passed.

Emily Grace (oldest)

Kelsie Rae (middle)

Brooke Julia (youngest)

We don't know if we are having a boy or girl yet, but have considered the name

Dakota Meredith (Meredith being the last grandparent who just passed away). My oldest children LOVE the name Dakota, but the older generation of family seems to HATE this name. What do you all think? I am open to suggestions for names that go well with Meredith as well... using that as the middle name.

For boy names we are completely lost since we don't have a lot of good choices for middle names so we are staying open minded. We have considered the name Cody for a boy name, but think it might sound a little wimpy. What do you all think? Any ideas on boys names?

We are american - with german ancestry.

    I have never cared for the name Dakota, and it is well past its prime now (along with the similar Sierra, Montana, etc.).

    Besides, it doesn't really "go" with your other daughters' names, as they have more feminine-sounding first names, and Dakota is more of a unisex sounding name.

    I can't say I care much for Cody, either. It's the kind of name that sounds cute for a preschooler, but I can't imagine wanting to be a grown man named Cody--it just sounds too babyish. It might be all right as a nickname for something else, but I think a stronger-sounding first name that will suit him all his life would be better.

    Well Meredith alone is a mouthful in itself. I would suggest going with a one syallable name. Names like Elle, Kate, or even Blaire. But I think Paige sounds the best to me with Meredith as the middle name.

    As for boys, I like the name Landon Joseph.

    Giselle Ann is a nice name , Tara Jean for TJ when they grow up, For boys Ashton , Lincoln , Ariel . . I don't like Dakota . Just be careful because sometimes kids can be very mean in school and do name calling.
