We are pretty set on Piper for a girl. I like Rosa for the middle name but dh prefers Mae so it will probably be Piper Mae
. I also really love the name Raven but can't use it as our kids always have blue eyes and white blonde hair! I also like Francis (but calling her Frankie) but dh hates it.
We always have such a hard time choosing boy names. Dh doesn't like any of my favourite names and well, he doesn't really come up with his own ideas - he just says yes or no to whatever I come up with.
(My favourites are Eli, Isaac, Israel, Zion - I'm not jewish, I just really like those names for some reason).
So far the front runner for a boy is Lani
which is hawaiian for sky/heaven. But no ideas on a middle name. Ds's middle name is Wild so it would be nice to have something comparably fun.
I find none of our favourite names from previous pregnancies ever carry over. It seems like our choices are always very dependent on the "spirit" of the current pregnancy if you know what I mean? Names that fit the first time (but didn't get used), suddenly don't seem right anymore. Anyone else find that? It's ok, but it means starting from scratch every time.
