The name game

I found a website on a friends blog where you type your child's name and it generates names that are similar to the one you typed. I guess it's to give you ideas for sibling names so the family blends together well, or something. So these are all names that 'go' with our sons name.

Boy Matches:

Conan
Seamus
Finlay
Roarke
Kermit
Callum
Forbes
Alpin
Fergus
Declan
Finnegan
Tiernan
Broderick
Angus
Archibald

Girl Matches:

Fiona
Siobhan
Fallon
Maeve
Wynne
Kendall
Delaney
Kenna
Kerensa
Malvina
Connolly
Eleri
Saoirse
Caoimhe
Grainne

Then I tried my siblings to see how well my parents did.

The first name match for David was Nimrod. But the second time I searched David it was Jesse, which is what my parents almost named him.
Andrea was Arianna
Taylor was Benjamin
Scott was Stacy

I didn't search through all of the names but I didn't see any of us on each others lists. Also, I'm pretty sure I won't be using any of the 30 boy and girl names listed above for our future children. Except maybe Kermit.

This is what you do on a Thursday morning when there's not much left on the 'To Do' list.

You have no idea what you've just done...Now I want to start guessing!

I will refrain from posting guesses, but I have a short list going and am anxious to see if I'm right. But this throws off my theory that P.A.W. are his actual initials and not just a cutesy nickname.

I would really like to see this website. I'm curious what names will pop up with Togo and Zola...
Anyways... please post it or text me AFTER Paw is born. (I think your babies real name is Paw)
