The wife and I are expecting our third child in the next week or so, but we're struggling to nail down the name. Any thoughts on the finalists?

Sydney Anne/Michelle
Kate Elizabeth
Megan Elizabeth

And please, don't tell me one of these reminds you of your favorite porn star/stripper so pick that one.

I like Sydney and Megan.

I think Sydney will probably be a really common name, though. When naming my girls, I tried to be original and always failed.

Sydney is in the 20s or 30s of most popular names in 2003. We chose Emma for our first in 1999. Emma was in the 40s.....now it's in the top 5.

We're the same. Our first girl is Emma Claire. That's probably why we're somewhat drawn to Kate. A little plain, but a classic that will never "go out of style". And no unique spellings either....not a fan.
