  1. I voted for Sleigh and Dagney. It doesn’t look like they’re going to win though haha… I will keep my fingers crossed as well!

  2. Ooh. I love Fiona, but I would LOVE to read about the historical significance of Igraine. Della is fun, reminds me of my Aunt Ardella. And I also voted for Sleigh… Fraser’s so meh for me! My picks have yet to win, so I’m going to cross my fingers.

  3. Lester’s a family name, probably never useable because of the “molester” connection, but it would be interesting to hear about it anyway!

  4. Oooh Dagney is a favorite of mine!

    I not really a fan of any of the boy’s names but I most curious about Fraser.

  5. I chose Audra and Fraser. I have always loved Fraser but my Irish husband won’t get behind a Scottish name. Lol.

  6. I was torn between Della and Fiona. On one hand Della is a family name that I love.. but Fiona is so spunky!
