We are both involved in jobs in nature/water/geology and my husband has a deep interest in starts/space.
I love gardening, the wilderness and animals so I would like a name that reflects this.

We are stuck on ideas (boy or girl names).
Our daughter is called Autumn and her middle name is Rose so nothing too similar to this for a girl.

I'm not far off my due date now and we are clueless as to what names to use!
Nothing that is likely to get the child bullied in school or affect job in the future though!!
