Not to be rude, but please, please, please don't bring another "Connor" or "Mackenzie" into the world--there are SO MANY kids with those names these days. It's not that they're bad names, it's just that every second kid seems to go by them.
My best friend's sister named her newborn son Ethan when he came into the world this Monday.</font>
Personally, I'm not really partial to either of those names. There more or less Jamie's choice, but I kind of think they're alright. I do agree though, they are becoming over-used.

just in case you don't know, 'aidan' means fire in irish gaelic. the traditional spelling is 'aodhán' i think.
'kieran' means black, and the traditional spelling is ciarán.
'Cáitlín' means pure, and is the gaelic version of kathleen.
maybe you know all that already, but just in case you didn't, there you are.</font>
Thanks for the info! We alredy knew this, but it's great of you to offer.
That's one of the reasons why we like those names. They're Celtic/Gaelic, and we both have roots in Ireland and Scotland.
There are some names that I like the meaning of, but Jamie doesn't like the sound of the name. For example:
Nyvon = New Hope (Icelandic)
But, she doens't like the name, so
I can't have it!!
If anyone else knows the meaning of the name they are suggesting, please offer. an
