Name Thread?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
With all the ultrasound results pouring in has anybody decided on a name?

I think we are going to go back to our original boy name and a newly discovered middle name;

Hayden Sky

As much as I love the name, I just don't think I can get away with naming a boy Sophie

I like it, Limette. Are you pronouncing it like the composer or like it sounds? I LOVE it pronounced "hyden".

We aren't finding out, but are going with our gut for boy. Not sure on names yet.

Yeah, he may not appreciate being called Sophie.

We have a for sure first name, although it doesn't have a set spelling yet. The middle name is still up in the air.

We keep ours a secret from people IRL because we don't want to hear any comments about it and it's kind of fun to have a surprise for people after the birth since we already know the gender. Since there are some people IRL who know me on here too, I have to keep it a secret from you ladies too!

It'll be pronounced the way it sounds. So not like the composer.

We've had this name picked out for a decade now and I was starting to waffle on it because of the "den" popularity right now. Dh insists that this is the name so unless something else catches our attention, Hayden it is!

Yeah, I don't like our little guy would like being called Lucy either

I like Hayden. After all the -den (Aiden, Braden, Caden etc..) boys names being so popular over the last few years Hayden is still one you don't hear too often.

We are thinking either Dillon or Ian. Middle names are not set but we like Ernesto or Carlos best so far. We set up a pattern of using an Irish/Scottish/Welsh/English first name & a Hispanic middle name based on DH & I's ancestry. DS1 is Gavin Diego & DS2 is Rhys Mateo.

I think I am having a problem with too many names on my list - like 20 names plus similar names listed next to the 20. I have completely exhausted nymbler.com so I think my list is done. My partner doesn't really veto at all though so I'm going to have to rank them or pull them out of a hat or something.
Years ago I really wanted to name a daughter Rowan Mae but I'm sure that won't be the name for this baby (I can just feel that it doesn't fit her.) I also used to like the name Frankie for a girl but then I named my cat that so... yeah. Hhahaha.

I love Rowan for a girl. It was on my boys list (out of desperation) but I just couldn't use it for a boy.

Personally I am not a fan of traditonally boys names for girls. It is way to hard to find a real 'boy name' (that isn't super common) anymore because of this. But that is just me & my struggle having to name 3 boys

I would suggest continueing to narrow your list or even rank the names, but then wait until after baby is born to really decide. If you decide on 1 name it may not feel right for baby once you see baby.

Right now, we are kind of "putting off" thinking about names. I mean, it's always in the back of my head, and a couple of months ago I even checked a stack of baby name books out from the library, but nothing I found really felt like "the name."

We are not finding out the gender, but I have definite "boy feelings." The one boy name I am really partial to right now is Luca August. I REALLY like August, but I'm not sure about using it for a first name. I think my husband likes Luca because he is a big Godfather fan... "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes." Before this pregnancy, we had preferred short, strong boys' names, like Sam, Max, Jack, etc. But I am not feeling it for this baby.

I have a long list of girls' names that I love, but unfortunately, DH and I always clash over girls' names. My first pg ended in miscarriage, but for it, DH was absolutely IN LOVE with the name Olive, which I like too. However, he says that he feels like it was that baby's name, not this one's, and I can respect that. Other girl names on my "love" list:

Eliza
Violet
Bronwyn
Wren
Audrey

So, in other words, for the time being, we're stuck. Oh well... I have 4-5 more months, right???

I like that. I'm kind of into month names right now, and I like August for a boy. Luca is really nice, too. I was kind of hoping for a June baby so I could have a little girl named June. I guess we could do Augustine, but we're pretty sure that this little girl is

Fiona Louise.

We are usually very, very secretive with names, but we've started telling a few people, and it still feels right. Fiona is just a name we like, and Louise is DH's grandmother's name.

My sister-in-law named her daughter Sophie even though her cat was named Sophia. She figured that the cat was old and would die before the baby was old enough to realize she and the cat had virtually the same name. The girl is 8 now -- I think the cat died a long time ago, so the plan seemed to work

Heehee, my parents had a cat named Cassie. Just a year or 2 after she died they had my sister and named her Cassidy...not for any reason other than they really liked the name

I just have to say if you can't decide on names this is a great strategy...BUT, when I had DS2 I looked at him and thought..."OMgoodness, I'm going to name him EZRA?? He's just a baby! Ezra doesn't fit at all." I *almost stuck James as a middle name (which is also a family name) because I thought we could call him Jimmy, but I had to fill out the SS papers before I could discuss it with DH. Now, there is no way he could have been anything BUT an Ezra and I'm so glad I didn't go with my initial response. So if you have a particular name that you love, don't let yourself be talked out of it just because your baby doesn't "look the part". Just from experience

I just posted about this on Facebook!

We picked names!!

When we were pregnant with DD we had the name Jaece picked out for a boy. We always said that if we ever ended up having a boy, that he would be named Jaece. Well we now know a guy named Jaece so I can't bring myself to use that name anymore.

DH really really loves the name Natalia and I have to say it has really grown on me so if we have a girl, Natalia Jeanae it will be. Jeanae is my middle name and was taken from my grandma's name, Jeanie.

If we have a boy, we have decided on the name Bode Keam. We both love the name Bode and Keam is a middle name we were going to use if we had a boy last pg. It is the first letter of all the men that are important to us. Kenneth, DH's uncle. Edward, my dad. Arthur, my grandpa and Michael, DH's dad.

I have an Ian. I love it. It's funny how names are; when dh was born yrs ago, both my parents and IL's were so not into his name. Then it started growing in use and they all love it. We had another name picked out for ds and he just was not that name. (We're thinking of using it this time it we have a boy)

We used to have alot of girl names but now only two stick out...Adalaide (Ada) and Meg. I really like Jack too. If I had twins, I'd use Meg and Jack. I think they go well together without being too matchy...although I do like Adalaide and Alexander--calling them Ada and Zander.

So there! If I have twins, I'm all set!

I did just ILL another name book--the sequel to Beyond Jennifer and Jason: Beyond Ava and Aiden, so we'll see.

(We're not finding out, but suspect BOY) Only 21 more weeks and we'll know!

I am so addicted to names right now. Some original/don't hear much names I know personally (friends, family's babies) are Jael (jay-elle), Jobi, Jovi, Jake and Mac.

I have a Luka. It's a little more common than I expected it to be-- I've met two other Luca/Luka's since I had him. I still love it, though.
My oldest is Julian Elijah and surprisingly, we haven't met any other boys named Julian, even though you'd think it wasn't that unusual. I actually don't like the name Elijah but his dad picked it.

We've picked Edith for our new baby, but no middle name yet.

I like so many of the names you all have posted! Molly is really cute, Wren, Audrey, Frankie. My husband likes Louise as a middle name for this one, too, but I think Louise sounds too much like Luka.

If this baby surprises us and turns out to be a girl after all, there's a pretty good chance it'll end up Audrey Elanor. The ultrasounds leaned boy though, so I'm pulling for Timothy Edward for the moment. DH's only suggestion so far has been Sebastian, which I'm less keen on. I have so many girl names I like but have used up all the boy names I've thought of.
