Hi Duana, I'm pregnant with our second child, due in November. We have a 15 month old son named Pearce. Our last name is Allen, which is super mainstream, so it's important to us to choose first names that are memorable. Our style is short and sweet (max 2 syllables). We also like 'real' names as opposed to some of the more recent cobbled together vowels and consonants that people are using (Declan? Jace? Not for us. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am currently pregnant with my first child and am having a bit of a name dilemma. The background story is this: I had made the mistake of telling a girlfriend of mine, L, that I liked the name Chloe, and coming from a European upbringing, this is not a common name.  Well about a year ago, I was at a BBQ with L and her friend M, and M proceeds to tell me that she recently bought a puppy (same breed that I was looking at adopting) and named this dog Chloe!

So everyone I know is going to know who this letter is from by (a) my children's names, and (b) the fact that I'm writing in when they all know I am a very loyal reader.
