I chose Camden -

I think it sounds sophisticated, I could see a Camden playing tennis at the club house or going to an ivy league college.

Just remember, this is what your kids is going to be called the REST of his life. My parents stuck me with an awful name that kids made up lots of awful nicknames (words that sounded similar or rhymed) and I was quite picked on just because of my name growing up -

As an adult some people remark about my name "oh that's unique" but 99% of people can't spell it and don't understand what I said when I tell them on the phone - my co-workers still make fun of me when someone calls for me but gets my name wrong.

My daughters are name simple traditional names that are easily spelled just for that reason.

So are you going to spill and tell us your name? Pleeeze. :)

When I look at names I'm always inclined to look at it from the nickname version as most of the time that's where it's going to go. James to Jim, Ezekiel to Zeke, Nathaniel to Nate, Paxton to Pax, Camden to Cam, Gideon to?? I like Pax and Cam.

Kids are mean and creative, so they'll pick on a kid if they really want to, regardless of how common their name is...

I have a 'unique' name too (well, foreign actually), but all the troubles it comes with doesn't really bother me. I love my name, I think it's better than something normal like Sally or Anne (no offence to anyone who has those names!)

I vote for Zack. Some of the others sound a tad heavy to me (like naming a girl Mabel or Gertrude these days).

My fav. boys name is Marco.

I rather favor my own name, Leland. Guys at school called me Lee and in large part, still do. Girls just called me sweetie ,and my aunt has always called me Squealin.
My choice would be Zack,Russell,or Michael.
