    I like mostly bible names, especially for boys, so they have a good role model to look up to (Daniel, Benjamin, Seth, and James are my favorite boys; Rachel, Rebecca and Leah are a few of my favorite girl names).

    I also like names that come from good books, again with characters to be good role models- Laura from the Little House books, Sophie from The Adventures of Sophie by Dick King-Smith, Seth from Fablehaven (though he's not the best rolemodel in the beginning).

    In general I prefer traditional and slightly old fashioned names. I also like somewhat cute names or nicknames, like Molly, Heidi, and Callie for girls and Benji, Dane, and Nat for boy nns.

    I prefer to choose family middle names, both because I like my family's names and because I want my children to know, love and respect those whose names they bare.

    Interesting question.

    Alexandra Marie: Alexandra, the last Tsarina of Russia. Marie, one of the last Grand Duchesses of Russia.

    Tatiana Belle: Tatiana, one of the last Grand Duchesses of Russia. Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

    Anastasia Victoria: Anastasia, one of the last Grand Duchesses of Russia. Victoria, Queen Victoria of England.

    Elizabeth Odette: Queen Elizabeth I. Princess Odette from The Swan Princess (movie).

    Ava Rose: I first heard the name Ava when I watched a movie with Ava Gardner in it. I liked Rose when I heard the name Briar Rose on Sleeping Beauty.

    William Heath: I've always loved the name William (Will). It was my grandfather's name and it's my brother's middle name. And I loved Will in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Henry Thomas: I first started liking the name Henry when reading about King Henry VIII. I read about a few Thomases during that time period as well.

    Nicholas Alexander: Tsar Nicholas II of Russia (last Tsar of Russia). I always liked Alexander, but I also liked the name of Tsar Nicholas' son, Tsarevich Alexei.

    Jack Dawson/River/Matthew: I can't decide which middle name I like the most. I first started liking Jack Dawson when I watched Titanic (my favorite movie). I like the name River and first heard that from the actor River Phoenix. I started liking the name Matthew when I was watching an episode of Little House on the Prairie last week and there was a mute boy named Matthew who I found attractive and I liked the name.

    I pretty much get most of the names I like from movies and famous people. I like most of the Disney princess names too: Ella (Cinderella), Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine. I like some of the Disney prince names: Eric, Phillip.

    For women I am massive on names which might be girly, and feature lovely nicknames. I have a tendency to love extra antique names paired with a extra ultra-modern title. Girls Lillian Faith Lilia Faith Allison Taylor Evelyn Claire Annabelle Taylor For boys I like names that lead to -n for a few intent. I like names that don't seem to be too normal for a primary title, and extra normal core names, I like extra loved ones ties with boy names for a few intent. Boys: Tristan Riley Sebastian Connor Austin Jacob Landon Alexander Gavin Davis You have relatively well style. I like plenty of your names. Noah Jacob was on my record, I adore it however my husband does not consider it is masculine ample.

His mom died a a little of a year ago and she was one of the sweetest people I ever met, and my boyfriend was a momma's boy. It was a depressing time for the both of us, she was a mom to everyone. So it's in honor of her. rip</3

    Bentley Cale - Bentley has meaning. Bennett is my boyfriends grandfather's name. Bennett plus my last name makes Bentley. Cale is my grandpa's name who is like my best friend. He's my hero. We are both extremley close to the both of them so it's honoring them.

    Leighton McKenna - Leighton I heard recently and we both fell in love with it, and McKenna was just a name we always liked.
