    Wow, sorry I haven’t been around. I have been so busy, but you have posted so many cool names since I last checked back.

    Atlas seems so under appreciated, I think he would appeal to parents who like names like Atticus, Phoenix, Orion or Aspen. Cool name.

    This is our #1 boy name for when we finally get pregnant! We have our boy name nailed down, but I like too many girl names to decide. Juno is actually one of my favorites, but worry that may be too much with Atlas? :-/
