Do you have names picked yet?

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
Me and DH have been together for 13 1/2yrs married for almost 11yrs. We've had our girls middle name picked forever!

For girl first names I like:

#1 ~ Stella middle name for sure is... Regan McKenzie

#2 ~ Farrah

#3 ~ Helen

#4 ~ Maggie

Thats what I have so far... which name do you like?

For a boy its going to be

Brayden JesseRay (Jesse after me and Ray after DH)

We're so far away from a name it isn't even funny. For now we just call the baby Yamez. (that's a long story!) DH told me yesterday "I feel like we're bringing home an unnamed baby from the hospital." Uhh maybe! And no you can't name my baby "A Pimp Named Slickback" LOL

I definitely have a boy name. I have a few variations and choices for girl names though.

It doesn't mean much though. I had my daughter's name ready before we conceived and I still managed to bungle it up...she has a different variation on her birth cert., her baptismal cert. and her birth announcements. To make matters worse, I use a variation of her name for online privacy, the ILs call her another variation and my family calls her by her first name (from the name on the birth cert.)

Hmm....I seem to recall that I was going to straighten this out before she was a month old....time flies...

We're still tossing up between our girls names. I love Leila or Lena. DH mentioned it to his crackhead sister the other day and turns out they are her top two names. *insertrollingeyes* She's devastated that we might use Lena and, if she ever forgives us, then she will name her future daughter Leila, and vice versa. I'm really irritated by this because a) she's not in a relationship b)who knows if she'll have girls if she ever has her own kids.

But our boys name is set: Simon Christopher.

We have no names! We never do at this point. We took a list of our top 5 names into the hospital and came home with children named different names. We have most-likely middle names, both family names, Rose for a girl and James for a boy.

For a girl leading contenders are: Emerson, Sophia, and Addison (DH doesn't like)

For a boy leading contenders are: Holden, Elliot (DH doesn't like), and Liam,

For a girl, most likely Carmen Isabel (after both grandmothers). It was the name we had planned if DS was a girl. But we're stumped on a boy's name. The other name we had thought of for DS (Luca) I don't really like anymore. I actually went online a few weeks ago to look for ideas and was laughing because I ended up finding a bunch of *girls* names that I liked! It all just enforces my belief that it's a girl!

That is too funny! My DH wont even talk about girl names. He's got his heart set on it being a boy. Men!

But the deal was, if its a boy you name him...if its a girl I name her. Well now he's trying to say "We're not naming her that" wait buddy, you've picked your name, dont rain on my parade! We had a deal, remember?"

We have big lists and it is going to be tough. We can't even agree which names are on the lists.

For girl:

Alice
Josephine
Lucy and variants
Lydia

For boy:

Rowan
Dashiell
Declan
Finn
Rhys
Jasper

Eh, we have a list going with some definite frontrunners. Our favorite name thus far for a girl is Mila and for a boy, Jude. Names we like are:

Girl:
Mila (possibly middle name of Reznor which is a name we love and would like to fit in somewhere if possible, but feel it might be a little out there for a first name)
Keenan
Lyric

Boy:
Jude
Nole
Lyric

I really liked the name Alida (Al-eye-duh) but someone I know used it recently. I'm not close to them at all and never see them, but it's a very unusual name so I feel like it would be weird. I also like the name Rhonin, but hubby says its a no go. We also like the name Aelinn but cannot agree on which sex we like it for lol (I like it for a girl, hubby likes it for a boy).

I recently came across the name Weilyn, and really like it but I don't want it to invoke images of Waylon Jennings (the country singer) so I don't know. We are totally stuck on middle names.

Jrene...out of your list I think Stella Regan McKenzie sound very lovely all together

Our names were picked around the time we conceived. If she's a girl she'll be Elliot Bell (and you better believe I'll be calling her Ellie Bellie ). If he's a boy his name will be Nolan Cash...only 5 more months til we find out who we have
post #11 of 75
We have:

Alexander Alan D.
and
Maeryn Jean D.

(and no, my names not really Maeryn, its just a name I love. lol... so Im not naming my girl after myself)

We chose these names years ago around when we started to TTC.

And I dont really have a preference with your names, they are all very nice!

I meant to post an answer to that as well, oops! OP, I agree with Bohemama, I like Stella Regan McKenzie together. I really like the name Regan!

Also, Bohemama I love your names! So cute I especially like Nolan Cash...we like the name Cash quite a bit and considered it as well. Its nice and unique but has a cool ring to it.

We have a boy named picked out, and a girls 1st name.
we just need a girls middle name... which is kinda hard.
We didn't have a middle name for our last girl until she was 3 days old.

And our name picks are big time ultra secret. well, at least the boy name is. it's just a promise DH & I have with each other, because our chosen boys names have been stolen 2x by close friends once they found out we were having girls. (and they were not common run of the mill names or combination 1st/middle names either).
post #14 of 75
Our names are definate. Either
Wade Leonardo for a boy (to match my two year old Wyatt),
Esther Lynn for a girl after her grandmothers middle names.

DH likes Esperanza (Spanish hope) for a girl with my middle name Rene'.
Esperanza Rene' Almendarez. Hmm. Well it looks nice written that way.
post #15 of 75
We know the middle name will be Sophia after DH's grandmother. We will probably argue about the first name right up until the date of birth like we did with DD!

I really like Avonlea. Avy for short. DH is unconvinced.
post #16 of 75
bri, Avonlea made me smile.

I think we're going with what this baby seems to have named herself (in my dreams and in my son's). I've never had a child show up and name himself or herself before, and the meaning behind the name is too perfect. It's weird to be only 17 weeks and have a name all set, but picking anything else at this point would be even weirder. Dh was unconvinced, but when I told him about the dreams, about ds, about some other things that have happened, he immediately said it was the name to choose.

That's how we're doing things this time too.

Dh has already picked Tucker Howard for a boy. Tucker is homage to his step-father, who has just been an amazing dad and grandfather to dh and our boys. Howard is homage to my dad, who was the only boy of 5 and then had all daughters, so my maiden name will die with him (unless my youngest sister keeps her name when she marries, but that's still a long way off since she's 15).

I have a feeling that a girl name won't be necessary with our history, so I've been tossing some stuff around but won't actually settle on anything unless we find out its a girl (which I really don't think will happen).
post #18 of 75
Our names are pretty definite - Margaret C/Katherine for a girl and Theodore Alexander for a boy. Now, we just need the 8th and a cooperative baby to get here so we can pick one already!!
post #19 of 75
We are set on a girl's name: Brenna May. The middle name after a grandmother and the first name because of a complicated story relating to a dream, lol...the long and short of it is we love the name and are settled on it

Boy's name? Not so much! I think part of it stems from us expecting a girl, though we are opting to not find out gender and I have absolutely NO feeling whatsoever about gender this time around (which doesn't make me feel weird, it is actually relieving at the moment as with both of our DDs I was convinced they were boys, lol) We have plenty of time to figure it out though!

Those are some lovely names you ladies have picked. I was five days old before I was named. I guess it didnt help that I was suppose to be a boy . Ta Dah! No wee wee here!

I think I like Stella Regan McKenzie for a girl. I just love the name Stella...it sounds so old Hollywood to me.
