Here are a few. They were originally posted in the nursery reveal post.
Notice the onesie on the bottom right. I've had that one on this blog a few times and hid the name every single time. Only 2 onesies are name specific (so far).

$ grep -i ^e.m$ /usr/share/dict/wordsThe only one was elm so then we knew we wanted to start the middle name with L. Now the problem with having a middle name that starts with L after a name Ella is that Ella has two L-sounding syllables and it's short. So the idea was to pick a long name (in contrast to the short name Ella) so that it would sound good and also one that didn't sound like "la" or "el". There weren't a lot of choices. We also considered a bunch of names that were not starting with L to see if they'd be good. We didn't have a name picked out when Colleen went into labor so while she was in the surgery room getting her spinal, I just decided we'd go with Lindsay and I told her in the recovery room and she was okay with that. She said she narrowed it down to that and another one so she was on the same page as me.
