  • Cambria reminds me of the Coheed and Cambria band. Not a fan.

    I like Alec and Anissa.

  • I like Coheed and Cambria, but I don't like the name that sounds so similar to the band. Just not authentic or original IMO. So therefore, I am not a fan of the name.

  • I don't like the first girl name at all. Cambria reminds of Coheed and Cambria and I automatically associate the name with a guy with big hair. lol. I've always felt Teagan was more of a boy's name.

    Anissa Catherine is really pretty, but the way you have Anissa spelled makes me think it's pronounced Uh-nis-uh. I went to school with a girl named Aneesa, which is prounced the way you are pronouncing Anissa.

    I like Alec Teagan better than Jordan Michael just because I don't like the name Michael. Alec Jordan is cute too.

  • LOL when DH and I got together, he had never heard Co&Ca. We had them playing in the car on my ipod and he was like "god..this guy sound like some skinny little b***h". We got home and I pulled up the picture of them and he was in shock. he kept saying "theres no way that big dude is the singer!!!" (sorry the first part of your comment made me think of that
    as far as the way the name is pronounced, my friends name is spelled Anesa and her name is pronounced (uh-ness-ah)

  • I have always loved Teagan (considered using it, but with the more gaelic spelling "Taegen") and I like Catherine, but not the other 2 names, so my vote would be for Teagan Catherine or Catherine Teagan.

  • I like Jordan Michael a lot. I'm not a fan of either of the girl names.

  • Cambria Teagen is great! Even though i used to listen to Co&Ca they never came to mind until i started reading the comments. I knew a girl in high school named Cambria so she comes to mind first. And I LOVE Teagan. This is the name we have picked out for if we ever have another girl.
    I really like Jordan Michael. Alec is cute but I personally think that the name Teagen sounds really girly so i wouldnt use it for a boy.
