Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My husband and i find out the sex of the baby next month! But we already have the names, If its a boy we like Raedyn and if its a girl we like Reese, since our names are Ryan and Rachel we think it fits! Do you guys like them or would it be like what were there parents thinking!? and what about middle names?

Reese was a name we liked for either a boy or a girl. But did not go with. I had a friend I went to high school with that named her son Rhys(Reese but spelled different). Raedyn goes with the whole Aiden, Hayden, Jayden, Kayden craze that is going on. I wanted names that were not that popular but it comes down to what you like. We named our son Greyson and last year is was in the 200's for popular names and this year it is 85. So you never know.
This is just my opinion, so feel free to ignore it, but I think it's silly when everyone in a family has names that start with the same letter. Other than that, I think the names are fine. Just make sure they sound good on a person of every age and don't sounds silly following "Grandma" or "Grandpa". Take the popularity of the name into consideration if you want your son to have a lower chance of having classmates with the same name. The social security names database is a great place to research the name's popularity.
