Thanks for the compliments!!

SteelerMom- I love the name Kieran! I'm shocked propel think it's feminine. It's very
masculine and normal sounding to me. I've heard it before and
always thought it was nice.

Rightkindofme--awww, sorry to add to your problem bym making another girl Delaney, lol. FWIW, I got a lot of "That's a boy name" so, it's not completely girl yet! As a matter of fact a girl I went to school with named her daughter Delaney by it was after her father, who is also named Delaney.

Smerkin- I've always loved the name Liberty for a girl!

Laughymama- thanks and I like your name as well. Cain's a great name and as you can see I gravitate towards biblical names for boys. I search every naming website (nymbler is cool) and read a lot of boards!!! Google has been my best friend!

Afton Reanne

Afton is a river in Scotland, my husband thought it was pretty. We've been debating on middle names and he suddenly pops in with Reanne. I don't know where he comes up with these things, but it's similar to my brother's name Brian, which I like and it's pretty and flows well.

Declan James Mitchell

Declan from a movie because I though it was an amazing name that I didn't hear very often. James for my brother, grandfather, father, cousins, etc. Mitchell for DH's beloved grandfather, whom we both share a fondness for. DH has two middle names so we thought it fitting if our future son had two, too.

Well, our boy's name has been picked out since last time - Colm James, after my grand-dad and DH's grand-dad.

I do like Xander/Zander as a boy's name too, but doubt I'll get to use it myself! Kieran is a lovely Irish boy's name (I'm Irish, so bit biased!!) You could also try Cian/Kian (same pronunciation - KEY-an)

We're dithering on a girl's name though. I *really* liked Zia (for all you 'Z' name fans!) but DH vetoed it - apparently there was some dictator general called Zia - I've never heard of him!!

I want something unusual, and preferably Irish. DH picked DD's first name and it's WAY too popular for my liking. Nearly every other little girl between 0-10 seems to be called Ellie/Ella etc... Fortunately DD has decided she prefers to be called by her middle name, which I picked. Rosie is much less popular, though still fairly common. I also like the idea of continuing a 'tradition' with a plant/flower middle name, but it's really hard to find any that go with Irish names...

Girl's names we like so far:
Sinead, Sadhbh, Saoirse, Caoimhe, Aisling, Cara.

Middle names: DH really likes Lily, I like Daisy or Willow, but none of them go with the first names... Sigh!

Well, I'm one that doesn't usually share online. It's probably silly, but I try to find unique names, and I don't like the idea of someone stealing them. But after reading this thread, I'm ready to share....lol. I just can't keep it in anymore.

We use original first names and family middle names. I'm taking the middle names of my siblings.

DD's name is Lyric Elise. Elise after my sisters middle name. Lyric because we're music fanatics so the name means something.

I've now really grown to like the Y in names. So this time we're trying to find a name with a Y in it as well. That is a little trendy right now, but I can deal with that I guess.

For a boy we like Weylin Lee (Lee is my brothers middle name). Or Fynnian (not sure on middle name yet). I know Fynn is getting way more popular, but in our area it doesn't seem to be.

For a girl I LOVE Lyvinnia. I'm working on getting DP to fall in love with it as well. I think it has such potential for good nick names. I would love to call her Vinnie. But she could also be Lyvie, or Lyv when she gets older.

We also like Vyola for a girl and another personal favorite of mine, Echo. I'm in love with Echo, but the trouble is that she will always and forever be Echo. Lyric is similar, in that there aren't any options for nick names, and this time around it would be nice to give my child diversity in their name.

My sisters middle name is Fay. So we're planning on Fayette as the middle name for most of the girls names we have picked.

AWESOME names Mamas!!!


My cousin's older ds is named Ciaran (Keer- on) pronunciation, and their younger is Liam. His wife's family is in Ireland and our grandparents from as well.
For a gaelic girls name I've always loved Finnola, nn "Nola". But wouldn't use it as it seems too similar in sound to Naomi, which is my youngest dd and her nn is 'Nomi'.

We know that if this babe is a girl her name will almost definitely be Violet, mn to be determined . I've been a bit hesitant to commit because I'm unsure if it 'goes' with all of our others but dh is SURE and he rarely is adamant about such things, so....

Boys name still unsure though, but Ezra has been in my heart since ds 1 was in utero... .
We shall see ...

I talking names. At least I can (hopefully) cut the 'possibilities' in 1/2 come mid March~ we totally plan on finding out

I know a little girl named Lyric and her sister is Harmony. She's so adorable. I love that name, it's always been one of my faves.

Well, I'm a bit biased... but GREAT name, haha! Out of all my kids' names, though, I have to say that Ezra gets the strangest reaction.

We have an easy time coming up with names at first, but then we debate for a bit until one clicks. We have a Jacob Riley, Liam Reid & Elias Rhys... like my R pattern middle names So keeping in that fashion, our boy name is Phineas Ryan, and our girl name is Isabella Rose. But she'll be Bella Rose to us. We've always loved the name Abigail and we were going with that for sure until DH read the meaning of Isabella.

I like that spelling and I know it is the more traditional, but I figured the Anglicized version (Kieran) would be less apt to be mispronounced. Though I have no Irish that I know of (all English ancestry here), my husband is mostly Irish and little Scottish, so I figured I could get away with a more ethnic name. Plus, it is a Saint's name which is a plus!

I wonder why? Ezra is on my short list of boy names.Someone else mentioned Declan. I like that.

We know a Declan and his baby bro Gavin. 2 adorable balls of trouble.

I love this spelling too . Great name no matter how you spell it.

Could you give me the pronunciation of these names? I love Irish/Scootish names, but get so lost...I love Ian, probably because I can pronounce it!

Sure.

Sinead - shin-AID Apparantly an Irish version of Jeanette or Jennifer
Sadhbh - Sive (to rhyme with five) Means 'wise'.
Saoirse - SEER-sha Means 'freedom'
Caoimhe - KWEE-va Means lovely/charming/gentle
Aisling - ASH-ling Means 'dream'
Cara - to rhyme with Tara Means 'friend'.

I have 2 boys, and I'm super nervous about coming up with girls names. I can't help it, but I've really only thought about a girl name, last time I bought dresses and still ended up with a boy. I've only shared with one friend, but I really like:

Padme~ it means lotus, comes from the mantra Om Mani Pandme Hum(the jewel is within the lotus). I like the idea of her knowing that what she seeks is already inside herself

For a boy, who knows. I already have an Aidan, so does everyone else, Bryn (sounds like Brin) gets mistaken for Bryan all the time, people jsut can't seem to understand that it's just Bryn, no other letters

I told DP he could name the baby if it's a boy, but his names are so out there, I may have to veto.

Aw! I love that

We're horrible at names. Or rather, horrible at agreeing on them. Not that DH has shared any for to me to agree to... It's me making a huge list, and him vetoing Every. Single. One.

The only two we can agree on are

Caleb Adai C____
and
Bethany Mary-Ada C____

I do love both names, but have little misgivings I need to get over- in Hebrew, Caleb translates to "dog," and I just don't know if I can live with myself over that. And then, as much as I love the name Bethany, I don't like the nickname Beth. I'd prefer Bet, Betsy, or Bess, but I'm already getting a hard time about those.

I tend to love Hebrew names, and the hubby shoots them down as "too out there..." I want a little girl named Tovah in the worst way, though.

I've been totally open about sharing names, but I think I'm going to stop doing it in "real life." Don't want to open it up to criticism

Thanks! I did know Cara, lol. I would have NEVER gotten the second, thrid, or fourth, tho. They're pretty. I like seersha and have a friend who's daughter is Keiva, which is close.

I'm not big on name sharing, but my favorite girls name is Ingrid, and I think it will go really well with our last name, but DH vetoed that one long ago. I like Kate, but it's too close to a celebrity, so other contenders are Elenor and Irene (dh likes that one). For boys, I'd like something less common, but dh doesn't want it too out there. Nathanial, or Nate and Henry are options, he likes travis, but that's a good friend of ours. Tristian, but I don't like the meaning. We've sort of dropped the discussion and I think we both feel that once you see the kid, the name will just come to you.

DH is Turkish so we wanted names that were Turkish but easily pronounced in English. We have names that are constantly mispronounced and would love to avoid that for our kids...time will tell if we pull it off!

Our boy pick is Kaya (it means solid, like a rock)
For a girl, we like Asena (Ah-sehna) (it's a fable about a female wolf, Asena, who led the Ottoman Turks to safety)

I LOVE both Saoirse & Willow but Dh veto'd them both. I think they go together well. So my vote (not that it really counts ) is for Saorise Willow.
