Hi, everyone. Not sure what I'm having yet but if its a girl it will be named Crystal Nevaeh and if its a boy Jacob Agustin. Agustin is my husbands name and he's insistant on naming the kid after himself (which I am not a fan of). But I plan to call my Jake or Jakie for short.

I just found out I'm pregnant and me and my fiance already had our names picked out before we got pregnant. If it's a boy we are going to call him Gariant Azure and if its a girl, Lillian Rosalie AKA Lily Rose.

My cousin recently told me about the program at http://savingmorethanbefore.com At her recommendation I signed up for their sampler program and I have to share the amazing results with everyone. Using this program last night for the first time, my husband and I had an overflowing cart of groceries and non food general items. In all it rang up to $538.16 but thanks to this program we only paid $ 32.88! We weren't the only ones shocked, the cashier's mouth dropped. It is literally about paying pennies on the dollar for everything!

If we have a girl I want to name her Adelaide Harper, and if it's a boy we are stuck between Jude and Hudson. It seems like no one likes either of our boy names besides my boyfriend and I. It's so frustrating to finally settle on something, but then run it by family and have it shot down.

names are hard! me and my hubby had to sit down several times and go over tons of names and then narrow it down to like the top 15 or so and then come back the next day with fresh eyes and narrow it down again. We actually asked our 3 year old when we couldnt pick between 2 names and he kinda decided for us! lol

Hi everyone - I am trying to name boy/girl twins! We are settled on 'Liam' for the boy. Any suggestions for a girl name to go with it? We thought of 'Lauren' 'Darby' or 'Carlin (Carlee nickname)'. I like Kiera also but my hubby doesn't and it's getting uber-popular now. Thanks for the help!
