    I don't know why but I'm always drawn to names that are either Russian or celtic in origin. They just seem so solid but poetic to me.

    my cousin's daughter is called Anya. She's 6 and at a wedding she decided to be my assistant and told me which pics to take and made me explain everything. Bless, I wanted to kick her across the room.

    I would like to call my daughter (if I have one) Susan. Just always liked that name.

    I've not thought about boy names.

    I hate to admit it but I agree. Good news is there are sooo many names to choose from that Ernest can still be the plant! :)

    On the subject of names from ST/SW... I've always liked the name Leia and it might get used for a name for one of my kids/cats.

    You could always use Padme or Padma. Means 'lotus' - think it's a buddist name.

    I've seen Arwen used as a name (They're on one of my work lists ;)) so that's not out of the question!

    Personally I'm plumping for the name 'Trinity' for a daughter. I just think it's such a cool name... and 'Patrick' for a boy... just to keep the family quiet ;)
