Thinking names already? Let me hear them!! - Page 2

post #21 of 42
For our first child, each one wrote a list for girls and boys, well for girl was easy because the only one name that we match was "Victoria" and for boys we match in 2 names, "Peter" and "Henry", both we put first Peter then Henry, so his name is "Peter Henry".

Now this list game has some rules, nobody that we knows (family or friend) have to use that name (dead or live person). I was in the hospital 1st day after the birth and my mother in law said that hubby's grand father was Peter and also her second son's 1st name is Peter, so since that day, I said:

When we get our second pregnancy I choose the name if it is a boy and if it is a Girl will be Victoría.

So now for our second Child the names are

Thomas Henry (My grandfathers name thomas....Henry is Hubby's second name, hahahaha!!!!, hubby hates Thomas, lol)
Victoria for a Girl

we don't look meanings and nothing else, just the name we like

We haven't started our lists yet, but I'm excited to We aren't finding out the sex of the baby and we aren't picking names until he/she is born... we will just have a list of 5 or so for each sex. That's what we did with DD (although we did know she was a girl) and it worked great.

About 4 months ago, I had a dream about a little girl with red hair and my husband was holding her. Her name was Maggie. I've since had 2 other dreams about her and it's always the same girl and there is always a flashing "Maggie" in the dream. So if its a girl...Maggie Lee (Lee is a family name, namely after my uncle that died a few years ago).We are at risk for twins so we have a 2nd girl name picked out as well... Molly. No middle name on that one yet.
Boys--??? We have no clue. We're trying to come to an agreement.... I really like Duncan and Daniel but he says no. He wants a Jameson... but it only reminds me of the alcohol...

LOVE your names! My sister is due in a few weeks, her girl name is Molly. My SIL is due 3 weeks before me, her girl name is Maggie.

Speaking of alcohol...my DS is Jack - if we have a boy I would love Daniel. Jack and Daniel? Is that weird?

Hi There!
Glad to see we're not the only ones with our names already picked out!
My partner (Kate) has two middle names, as does her younger brother, and my dad, so we've decided our kids will also have two middle names. We've chosen a first name we both like and then paired it with two family middle names!

So here they are
BOY NAMES:
Rylen Nicholas Maxwell (Nicholas is Kate's oldest brother and Maxwell is my grandfather)
Jaxen Dennis William (Dennis is my dad and william is a family name on kate's side)
Sakaden Jeremy Alexander (Jeremy is my brother and Alexander is Kate's nephew)

GIRL NAMES:
Dekaylee May Katherine (May is my middle name as well as my mom's and great grandmother's and Katherine is obviously Kate's full name)
Zeva Denise Alynn (Denise is the feminine version of Dennis - my dad and Alynn is a feminine version of Kate's dad Alan)

Well our kids so far are:

Rhys Christopher William (fn pr. Reese)
Niamh Beatrix Anne (fn pr. Neev)
Isla Isobel Mavis (fn pr. eye-la)

On the table thus far are:

For a girl:

My favorite currently is Scarlett. Also in the running are Honora, Coralie, Ailis (aye-lish) and DH is pushing for Caoimhe (Keeva) but I think it makes even Niamh's name seem simple by comparison and I don't think its going to happen LOL.

For a boy:

We had the names Heath, Grey and Ioan (yoh-an) left over from when Isla was born. I do still really like them but not sold on using any of them this time. There is also Graeme left from when Niamh was born and Miles from when Rhys was born LOL so we have lots of boy choices left.

I have suggested Cian (kee-an) but DH thinks it sounds funny with his last name.

I love Isla... DH doesn't though

The only thing for certain is that if it's a boy, he will have my maiden name as his middle name (as does DS).

And, I'd like to pick a girls name that ends in "a"....

Good thing we have 9 months still ahead of us!
post #32 of 42
I'm loving all of the choices so far! You Mamas are a good source of inspiration. I'm glad I'm not the only one that's already thinking of names, too!

DS is Calloway Baird. 'Baird' was MIL's maiden name, now her middle name (she dropped her original middle when she married). DH's middle name is also Baird, as is one of his cousin's. DH was VERY close to his grandfather on that side of the family + tradition, it was an easy decision to make. I decided to day before our gender ultrasound that I loved Call(a)(o)way, whether a boy or a girl. It stuck, then it turned out to be one of DH's great-great-great grandfather's name or something.

This time around, if it's a girl, I'm liking Annabelle Gray (Gray was MIL's original middle name, Annabelle was one of DH's grandmothers). Belle was also my mother's grandma's name. MIL's name is Genevieve and I LOVE it, but it's becoming super popular.

We sort of have names picked out but we're being secretive about it.

Is that weird??

Anyway, SO many lovely names being listed!

Kalila is on our long list. And I LOVE Piper but DF doesn't.
post #34 of 42
Our DS is named Praetorian Stone (Tor is his main nickname)

So far we are throwing around...

BOY: Noble Grandison
GIRL: Zion (can't figure out a middle name??)

I really need ideas. We like extremely unique names (can you tell).

I LOVE the name Annabelle! It is on my list of potential girl names. I started to like it after Isabella became super popular (Isabella used to be my number one girl's name).

Loved reading everyone's posts. I'm really not drawn to anything yet. Maybe it is just too early for me?

Yes! It’s so cool! It’s funny how there’s a small population of 30ish Rhiannons running around in the world/US. It seems odd how it’s becoming kind of popular these days!

For what it’s worth, Violet is pretty in style right now—I don’t associate it with the Afflecks at all, just the late-00s. With the legacy of a 102 year old grandmother behind it, I’d say it’s a great choice!


Tuffykenwell/Steph, if you’re still around: I like your naming style, and I really like Isla in particular. I was wondering if you have trouble with the pronunciation, having to correct people all the time? Is it a pain, or not a big deal?

What's weirder is that I'm 31, Rhiann, and NOT named for Fleetwood Mac!

My parents actually picked my name from the credits of a Monty Python movie.
