    Default Opinions???

    We are trying for our 3rd & final baby & have already picked names that we both like but I was just wondering what others thought of them...

    If Gril - Hilda Michelle (Hilda after my nana & Michelle after my late best friend who passed away in March this year)...I did like Kenzie Hilda but when I lost my best friend I couldnt choose which name to drop out so I joined the 2 together.

    If Boy - Jethro Colin (Jethro coz my husband loves NCIS & Colin coz thats our gynos name & he has been there from the start of our baby making adventure helping us get preg with #1 & #2 which he also delivered & he's now helping us again & will also deliver #3 too so he has been a huge part of our happy lives)

    Both are unique names with personal meanings, so I think you should go with your heart.

    Jethro in particular is a great name! Good luck, it's so exciting (yet difficult) choosing baby names

    The girls name is great, and it has meaning for you.

    The boys name is nice with Colin because that means something to you. But Jethro does kind of sound like death row.

    I agree with the death row comments sorry. I love why you chose the middle name but it just screams 'Colon' to me, sorry.

    On a more positive note I love your girls names.

    Why is the name Jethro associated with death row?... I think of Beverly hillbillies if anything.

    Both names are gorgeous!

    Thats ok, every1 has their own opinion & not all names are for every1. Yes I can see where ur coming from with Death Row but Seth has become very popular & people dont think of Death for that name. we arent changing the names they are set in stone but just wanted to see what others thought. if we have a Jethro he might get nick named Jet.
