What are your favorite names for boys & girls?
I'm asking this here because I generally prefer more "traditional" names, and the pregnancy & baby sections have a lot of people who prefer trendy names. I also like old-fashioned names that are coming back into style again....such as Madeline, for example.Thanks!
I'm not pregnant, I'm just curious (and excited about future motherhood, I suppose). Thanks though!

Jacob John = JJ - Jake - Johnny
James = Jim - Jimmy
Anthony = Tony
Matthew = Matt
Christopher = Cris - CC
Bradley = Brad
Daniel = Dan - Danny
Jonathan = John - Johnny - JJ
My favorite girls name is Shaelee.
Elizabeth = Lizzy - Liz
Katherine = Kate
Angela = Angie - Angel
Julia = Julie
Olivia = Livvy
Jennifer = Jenny
Megan = Meggie - Meg
Kaitlin = Kate
Karalee = Kara
Amanda = Mandy
These are some I like.

It would be nice to get back to tradition. I can't pronounce a lot of the names parents are choosing now. And those weired names the actresses are using is also different. Some may sound okay but when someone mispronounce it, the parent get mad. If I were to do it again I would choose biblical names, not hard at all.

I like traditional names too. I love the names my grandchildren have. All but 2 are named after family members:
And by the way, congratulations!
