Ideas for the Kid's Name?

So Leah and I are about 4 weeks or so away from finding out whether the child the Lord has blessed us with will require an extra cloth for protection when changing or not...

(The picture on the left is his/her first photo...the kid better get ready for the 7,467,364 Leah's going to take...)

In the meantime, we've come up with all kinds of names, but haven't really settled on any yet. We're pretty open, except I'm not big on unisex names (especially names that aren't actually unisex that people try to make unisex...). We have a lot to live up to in our families as well, as there have been some very unique choices so far.

Anyway, I came across this post from Molly Piper today on their child-naming philosophy and the names they've chosen for their two children so far, Orison (meaning prayer) and Felicity (meaning intense happiness). The whole post is worth reading and you can check it out here.

So anyone have any suggestions for the name? I would prefer a name with meaning versus one that just sounds cool, but we're fairly open-minded...within reason...

Felicity...sounds pretty perfect :) I wish I had read Molly Piper's post when thinking about names for our children (although I love both of them :)! As usual...very cool, Matthew!

Apparently Leah (leppert photography) can't seem to understand the distinction between a unisex name and a name she WANTS to make into a unisex name...help me out here.
