Thanks http://www.behindthename.com/ for all the name info. It might not be the best source, but it's the one I used, so that makes it the best.

I'm glad to see you are masculine and feminine! Yeah you guys are on the same road as us! We've moved 15 times...no wait I think 16 times now since we've been married--so in 3 years. I'm pretty much a professional mover by now! We bought a place so we will at least be settled for fall and winter but we'll move again in the summer! I told you that place was a hell hole! I can't believe rent is so much for that place! Have you guys considered buying anything?
