Hey all!! My husband and I are trying to think of some unique yet not weird names....We dont know if we are having a boy or girl yet (we find out May 22nd) but we are pretty sure we want the name to either start with an "A" or a "J"....A because it would go with our last name (Abitz) or J because both of our names start with "J". Do any of you have ideas for unique A or J names for girl or boy?! Thanks so much for your help!!!!

I'm a sucker for Irish names anyway, but I've always loved the name Aidan. I wish I could suggest a good name book, but everyone I've seen seems to be the result of a weird game of scrabble! Good luck!!

Ok, so here's my dilema....I LOVE the name Addison for a girl. However, my good friend from highschool (who lives very far away from me) Is naming her baby that to close? I don't want to make her mad...I've also always loved the name Aidan, but its becomming sooo popular right now so I'm not so sure about it anymore. My name is Jamie, and there were SOOO many Jamie's when I was growing up. There were at least 2 other Jamies in almost all of my highschool cla__ses. It wasn't fun. I just don't want my kid growing up surrounded by other kids with the same name...Any thoughts? Thanks for all your help ladies!!

I just wanted to mention that my 5yo ds's name is Aidan, so I obviously love it, but it is really popular, he thinks his name is Aidan W. at school! Oh Well-, go with what you love! BTW, I don't think that Addison and Madison are too close especially if you guys live far away and it is a friend and not someone in your family. I have a close friend who just had a baby and named him Jayden- admittedly b/c she liked Aidan's name so much, and I'm ok with it!

Addison is gorgeous for a girl!!!! Why didn't I think of that one? And no it's not to close to Maddison!
