Anyone else have names already? - Page 2

post #21 of 53

8w and already have names

We've chosen names already and we're only 8w

Girl: Naomi Denise (our favorite name + MIL first name)
Boy: Bankston Charles (Dh middle name + FIL first name)

my first child's name is Lillien Delight (my grandmother's first name + my mother's middle name)

I don't think we'll be changing our minds at all. We chose all of our baby names when we were dating lol

We can always come up with girls names...its the boys names that we cant figure out.


Girls:
~Isabella Ann
~Katelynn Ann
~Reagan(DH just said last night that he likes this one...which AMAZED me, bc I really didnt think he'd like it)

Boys:
~Ethan
~Ryan(well its on my list, not DH's LOL)
~ I like the name Matthew somewhere in the name...maybe middle...it was my great grandfathers name and my mom has mentioned it for the past few years (hint hint kind of thing lol)


other than that...we really dont have anything else...and nothing other than the girls names are set in stone.

Love the names you all are picking! So many pretty ones! It makes me wish we weren't 95% on our names so we could do some more picking LOL.

Wow two lists with Ronan on them! I'm surprised! That'll most likely be our name if it's a boy. Not sure on middle name. We do family names and need to scour our family trees for ideas lol.

Our girl name is probably Aoife (EE-Fa) Kathleen (after MIL and my aunt).

I have a girl name picked, but I always have an awful time with boys names!

Girl: Lila Paige

Boy: No idea, thought I saw Owen up the list and I like that one...

You ladies are lucky. We don't have any names picked out, and I can never get DH to commit, even to 2 names we could choose between. DS was nameless for the first 2 weeks after he was born.

When RJ and I had our son, we were certain, CERTAIN that we were going to have a girl, so we had all girl names picked out.

Lo and behold, there was DS, at the ultrasound, happily flashing his package for all to see... so began the saga of trying to come up with a non-Biblical, Viking-sounding name that wouldn't get our son's butt kicked on the playground because it sounded weird.

RJ liked Hjalmar and Thorvald... I politely suggested Eirik. RJ was like "Eirik? C'mon... that's not very Viking at all..." At which point I showed him the Wiki article on Eirik Raude, more commonly known as Erik the Red.

And in an effort to keep with our tradition of having the number of letters in our first and middle names add up to 8, Eirik's middle name is Jon, a nod to both of his grandfathers

So for this time around, here are our choices:

For a girl: Skaði Ayn & Astrid Li
For a boy: Rorik Kai & Eitri Rós

we're having a hard time with names.

girls list so far (middle name would probably be Ruth):
Eleanor
Elena
Aoife
Evie
Caroline
Brenna, or Branna
Emmalyn

Boys names are even harder, I really want Charles, dh really wants Hugh. Neither of us likes the other's choice. We have a couple of middle names (Davis and Niall), but can't agree on a first name. I just can't live with Hugh. We finally agreed to stop talking about it until we find out the gender.

We've got...

Boy:

Leo Joseph

Girl:

Jane?
We really don't know...

We actually have our boy's name picked out! We've never picked a boy's name that we loved, but this time I really, really, really like the name: Hudson Croix

And for a girl: either Cricket or Ginger -- need help with a middle name... These names are both so perfect; they go well with the rest of our girls' names and are just so much fun.

I love picking names. I do not like when Dh vetoes every one of the names on my list!

Surprisingly (since we already have 2 girls) we decided on a girls name. Tabitha Jayne

The boy name eludes us...we did like Max and still do but feel like it doesn't fit our family. Now the front runner is Lucas and the boy middle name is still staying Spencer because that is a family name.

If DD had been a boy, her name would have been "Django Robert." it has two built in nicknames (DJ and Doc -- DR? ha ha. yeah.) and our last name is Cherry so it'd be a pretty rockstar name once he got out of gradeschool.

I'm 90% sure this is still our top boy name.

Middle names will always be family names.

Girl names are trickier since we already did this dance with DD...

Possibly:

Mae
Kate
Fay
Pearl (might not be good with our last name)
Vaughan
Alice

...yeah. I dunno for that one.

LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing everyone's names!

I feel like I have a troublesome last name... anyway here are some of my FAVORITES that have either been vetoed or sound horrible with my last name

Girl
Brita
Analise
Olive

Boy
Garrison
Trevor

We have some family names we are working with (Alice and James) and I am pretty set on a normal-ish sounding name because I grew up with a real whopper of a strange name and hated being both teased and constantly asked about it when I was still very young.

Husband is still deployed so names will probably have some time to stew until we really get down to the nitty-gritty.

Good luck all!

So we have finally decided on our names (twins)

Girls:
Isla Grace and Abigail Therese

Boys:
Boston Robert and Lucas Charles
post #36 of 53
We like:
Girl:
Anna Beth (means "house of God's grace" Beth is after my MIL and me)

Boy:
Asher or Asa BenJoshua (with Asher would mean "happy or blessed son of the saviour" Asa means physician or healer. BenJoshua is DH's middle name- he goes by Josh)

I've had the girls name picked for a long time, DH is Indian so wants a hindi first name, ds has a hindi first name with a slightly differently spelling, one vowel is different, just because i didn't like that he may have a certain nickname.

Girl:

Tulsi Lynne, Middle name after my mom, Tulsi means basil

Boy?!?! I have a couple names picked, I really like Rohan, but i have a relative with the same spelling last name who is now divorced and her ex goes by Rohan so i think that is out.

So far all I like is Kavi, Sohan, and Siddarth for the middle name no clue, I am hoping I hear some awesome hindi boys name between now and delivery as I am convinced this baby is a boy, but we'll see for sure in about 6 weeks.

There are some pretty cool hindi names i like but we know people with the names and i don't really like the idea of having the same names: like Syon and Jetan i think are neat names. But I am trying not to dwell too much until we find out the gender.

Ironically my dh goes by an american nickname but insists that our kids of hindi names, I said i am fine with it, but i have to search high and low for names that we both agree on and aren't terribly hard to pronounce or spell.

We do Hindi names as middle names, since DH never uses his Hindi name except when we go to India every 5 years or so. He has always been called his American middle name, so we just decided to make it simpler and put the Hindi name in the middle position for ours.

I really like Rohan, it was one of our top choices for a boy, but since DH's Great Grandfather was Mohan, we're going with that instead if newbie is a boy. I think we're going with Mira if newbie is a girl. DS is Kiran which I really like and DD is Asha.


As for first names I think we have settled on a girl's name, plus we have about 4 other names we really like as well, in case we change our mind. If it is a boy, though I am completely out of luck. I have a list, neither DH or I feel like any of the names on the list is the name for a boy. I am really tempted to find out gender rather then going green team just to know if I need to worry about a boy name or not, because we are that stuck on a boy name.

othersomethings - You freaked me out for a second because I know someone with the last name of Cherry who has a daughter named Ella and is currently pregnant! Different aged kid, different due date, different location, but it still made me do a doubletake.

We won't work on names until after we know the gender. DH generally just vetoes everything I suggest.

For a girl, I currently like:
Gloria
Opal
Marigold
Clara
Orchid

(But I'm sure DH will hate all of those.)
I also really like Violet and Lorraine, but my friends already used those so I guess I'm out of luck.

For a boy, we both like the names Jack and Abraham.
