I'm due with a baby girl on January 4 and we're still stuck on a name! Our first two children were easy to name - Delilah Caroline (4) and Benjamin Jacob "Ben" (2). This time around, we've used our favorite names and don't want to use a "runner-up" from a previous pregnancy. (We want to love our second daughter's name just as much as we love Delilah and Benjamin!) We have a few rules:
1. No word names. Our last name is Shore, so anything like Daisy Shore or Georgia Shore sounds like a beach.
2. No one syllable names - they sound choppy with Shore. I'm willing to bend this one if we fall in love with a great one syllable middle name, but we would like to avoid this if possible.
3. Nothing starting with a D or a B. We'd like each child to have their own initial.
Here's our current list:
We're not 100% sold on any of these. Popularity isn't a big issue, but I'd like the name to "fit" with Delilah and Ben. I'd love to hear some suggestions, as well as opinions and comments on our current list. Thanks, Swistle!

Adeline Olivia Shore arrived on January 2, 2010! We reconsidered our original list and fell in love with the name Adeline again. It fits her perfectly and we're happy to have found a great name for her.
