Baby Name Update

So after much debate and thought Cheryl and I have narrowed our baby name list down to an even shorter list, and decided that the baby name we choose will be a four letter word.
Nothing to long and nothing to complicated.

I have also received a few preliminary guesses from my family, and I can definitely say that Ulga and Lynn are out. Cheryl vetoed 'Cheryl Jr.' which is unfortunate cause I think it was just adorable! It also won't be a weird shortened version of a name like Jamy (ie Jamie)(my dad's guess, I have no idea what he was thinking.) And there is a very slight chance that the final name is from my own family tree, although not a family name. We are trying to stay away from repeating family names. Sorry family. That's just how I roll.

That's all for now.

Baby Names, part 2

Hello Name-choosers,
We have narrowed our name list down to a 'Short-list'. And we think we have the one. I can confidently tell you that you have definitely heard this name before. Its not a made up name, or a combination of syllables that you haven't heard before on Earth. I say that because we have received a number of series of Vulcan and Klingon names of Star Trek origins.

So far here is our list of names that we are considering:

Audrey or Awhdrie, Melanie, Melody, or Rachelle,
Emily, Emily Louise - Emmy Lou, Emily Christine, Emily Marie
Olivia, Brooklyn, Milan, Teagan, Beatrix, Heilyn, Hayden, Eden,
Cheryl jr. (my idea), Jo-Lyn (after both of our moms' names), Calypso,
and Hermione.

Thank you so much for your votes. If you've suggested something else and you don't see it here, let me know. It was a slight oversight is all.
