I love Xanthe, Carys, Scout & Seraphine. I might use Carys but concerned she'd have to regularly correct people.
For boys I like Gabriel (Gabe), Gage, Hayden, Kellan and Jensen. Hubby feels they are too feminine. Javier I also love but we're not Spanish.
I agree Reag I think Jensen is awesome. Jensen Button & Jensen Ackles are fine examples. I think he's worried in an Aussie playground he'll get Jeni.
My husband and I love the name Sachen for a boy. It may be spelt differently actually. I think it's Sri Lankan, there is a cricketer Sachen Tendulker (sp??)
But the thing is, my hubby and I are both very pale with v light hair and eyes etc. as kids we both had almost white hair. So I just think the name Sachen would seem wrong on a little boy who may look almost albino!!!
But I'm now 34 weeks pregnant and starting to not worry about that as much cos i love the name so much. Although DH is still pretty adamant it won't suit our boy.
I always liked Thaine and Lex as names when I was looking at baby names for both boys but I'd never have the guts to use them as Lex most people associate with the evil guy from superman and Thaine The Pain is not necessarily the playground taunt I would want my son to have.
Caine was also another one but the religious reference to murdering your own brother always put me off.
