    I do have a DD Acacia and my eldest DS is Rune
    Rune and Acacia are gorgeous names!

    River and Atticus are on my love list too - I think we have the same taste

    I think for a girl the most out there name I was going for was Juno. love that name!
    I love Juno too

    I think Clover is gorgeous! I've always loved 'Matreiya' (ma-tray-ah) for a boy but everyone looked at me like I was from outer-space... plus it's the name of the 'fat' buddha so I guess it might be a little bit like naming your son Jesus *shrug*

    anyway I had a girl so.....

    I love Acacia for a girl, but there's a prison in WA with the same name :-(

    Also like Malachi (sp?) for a boy, i think its pron Mal-ak-eye. and Mairead or Satine for a girl.

    "Dorian"... from "The Picture of Dorian Gray".

    I'm also fond of "d'Artagnan", and another one who likes "Anakin" (but only in Star Wars, not in real life!).

    I have never considered Pippin before, I don't mind it. But I think of Lord of the Rings. Which also makes me think of the name Samwise, which I like alot too.

    My sister in law was going to name her daughter Acacia, but shortened it to kaysha (pronounced the same) because she was scared of it being pronounced wrong.


    Waiting on the arrival of William

    Ohh Dorian and d'Artagan are nice! I can imagine people's reaction trying to pronounce d'Artagan though

    I know a d'Artagnan. For what it's worth he despises his name, and goes by another.

    I am fond of Grover for a boy, but everyone kept mentioning the muppet, rather than thinking of the US president, or the jazz musician.

    I think Clover is mine too. Except I would use it, but DP hates it.

    For us, it's names like Ajax, Loki etc. We want our babies to have middle names of gods/goddesses and/or mortal heroes. DP loves Ajax, which I think is cute but it reminds me of spray and wipe! Ajax was the strongest mortal ever, Loki is the god of mischief. We also have Iris, the goddess of the rainbow and Rhea, the Greek goddess of fertility, chosen for girl middle names!
