We've decided on either

Eleanor Jane
Joshua Jonathan

for our baby.

I think Eleanor goes really well with Julianna and we could call her Ellie, El, Nora, or Eleanor. Jane is my mom's middle name and since Julianna shares a middle name combination from my mother-in-law, my husband's grandmother, and my own middle names we thought it would be appropriate to use my mom's middle name if we have a girl.

Joshua has been out top boy name for a long, long time. Jonathan as a middle name would be from my husband and also the 6th generation child with Jonathan somewhere in the name.

This time around we had a harder time with the boy name than we did picking out a girl name. With Jules it was just the opposite. (This is the main reason why I think this baby will be a boy, but we'll see...)

I'm glad to have the decision made already since agreeing on "the perfect" name is such a difficult task to begin with. Thanks to all of you who voted in my girl name poll a while back and thanks to those of you who've offered opinions on the boy middle name. I think we're both ahppy with the above choices and we'll see what October brings!
