DH and I are still debating names. I'm half-Swedish and he's half-Japanese, so we are thinking about finding ways to incorporate both cultures into the name. These two are probably our top choices:FelixSo far we are pretty certain this is our choice for a boy. It's not Swedish, but it's a popular name in Sweden so the association is very strong for me. It's Latin for 'happy' and 'lucky.' We are thinking about a Japanese middle name to go with it.WrenWe like this for a girl because it's an English name (for the little songbird) as well as sounding like the Japanese name Ren, meaning 'lotus.'I'm also a fan of the following:Astrid (f; Norse for 'divinely beautiful')Agnes (f; Greek for 'pure') - extremely popular in SwedenViolet (f; Latin for 'purple') - we had a huge bloom of wild violets around our house the week following my MMCSören (m; Norse for 'stern')
For a Girl: Emma middle name to be decided (Emma Frost) meaning whole, or complete & this will be our last pregnancy. For a Boy: Logan James (Wolverine) No shame in my husband's long time love of all things Marvel.

@dinodna3 OMG! I feel like such a dunce. Lmao. Thank you for clearing up my confusion. I totally know of that series of books/movies and while I did enjoy reading the books. We actually didn't name her after that character. People used to ask me that all the time though.
