Thinking names? - Page 9

post #161 of 188

 Here's another one I really like but we can't use because of last name clashing:

Fawkes.  I love it!

Ooooh!  Hadley(or spelled Hadleigh?) is nice.  Dh has been wanting to call this baby Haddie.  I just woke him up to ask him about Hadley, but he said it's weird. LOL  What in the world?!

Nymbler.com says it is an English girls name that means, "field of Heather" and is currently ranked #414 among U.S. girls names.

 

I'm still up in the air.  I *kind of* settled on Adelaide, but I'm wavering.  I do like Hadley, with a nickname Haddie. 

The latter doesn't go very well with our other kids names, though.  Truman, Eleanor and Linus.  I'm going nutty over here. nut.gif

I think that Hadley goes great with your other kids' names. They're old-fashioned names (which I love, BTW) and Hadley sounds old-fashioned to me as well. Haddie is even more so. And if you like Adelaide, with a nickname of Addie, then Hadley/Haddie is pretty similar to that, at least in the nickname department.

I keep forgetting to respond to this. I love Hadley! It's now in my top names list. I hadn't heard it before. Thanks!

 

I am driving DH crazy with names. He is stalling looking over the list. I just don't think he has the sense of urgency I do at this point. Um, hello. We are having another baby in less than 2 months! The lack of name is really panicking me.

Bodhi is topping our list this week lol.

No one we've mentioned it to likes it??!! I think if I didn't realize the spelling I wouldn't like it so much either. Isn't that funny?

Others we are thinking about: Jesse, Kieran and Simon.

That was our boys name as we are Buddhists and the spelling refers to the Bodhi tree that Buddha sat under on his path to enlightenment and many may not understand it's meaning.  Many people spell it differently depending on whether it is the name or spiritual meaning they are after.

I think Bodhi is a great name with a beautiful meaning. Someone in my last DDC named her son that, i think spelled differently. Here in the alpine region, people know the name well thanks to the US ski star Bode Miller (he pronounces it the same as Bodhi).

Your other three letter kids' names made me think of the name Ivo (meaning yew tree: pronounced ee-vo)...which is a name around these parts. I just love tree-associated names. treehugger.gif

Me too - I spent a bit of time trying to convince DH on the merits of Salyx or Cedar.

post #170 of 188

I love Cedar....or any tree name for that matter. Juniper, Hickory etc..  But our girl is going to be named after my mama and DH mams middle name. EmaRhe Faye. "Ema-Ree"

How would you guys pronounce it if it wasn't capitalized?  Emarhe, I'm afraid it looks like   " E-Mar ".

Honestly, I would have no idea how to pronounce it based on the spelling. redface.gif I might guess at "Emma-Ray" or "Ee-mah-ra". My friend has an Emmery - I always liked that!

 

post #172 of 188

I would pronounce it as ee-mar-ee. To get the "emma" I would need to see two "m"s in there. If it was spelled Emmarhee then I would pronounce it the same as Emmery. I hope that makes sense, it makes sense in my head...

 

 

 

ETA: My names list keeps getting longer, not shorter. Now I have 4 names that I like instead of 2! Elias, Quinn, Zane and Oliver. I know there is another momma on here who is going to have an Oliver as well. For some reason it suddenly struck me last night as a perfect name. Oliver Samuel sounds so cute! I'm so going to have to meet this little guy before I can decide.

I am also not sure how I would pronounce it. I *think* I would have guessed Emma-Ray. 

 

Jenni-love the name Oliver. We are probably going to use it as our middle name.

 

post #174 of 188

thanks for the input....still talking about it with DH.  

 

Jenni--I LOVE Oliver as well!

post #175 of 188

I love Hadley with a nickname of Haddie - I think it's very cute, but also one of those names that will age well!

I have to say I'm partial to Oliver. Maybe it's just because that's our boy name. We had our girl name all picked out - Mina Rose - but I'm starting to have doubts. I had a bunny named Mina that died. I don't know - it seems kind of a weird association all of a sudden. So we've been looking at other girl names, but we are just having a terrible time. At the rate we're going this may be baby no-name for awhile!

Well, Hadley is out for us. DH vetoed it. Plus, I tried it out in my last Hypnobabies session and it just didn't fit.

post #177 of 188

Other spare names I can offer up:

Arden

Dahlia

Hollis

Ezri

Keaton (boy or girl)

Leighton

Raisa

Paget

Vivian

Maeve

Elora

Isla/Ayla

post #178 of 188

Isla is our girl name:))))

post #179 of 188

Jenni, I love those names!  All four of them, but Quinn and Zane especially.  They seem unique, yet not outlandish, and kind of stylish.

 

We've struggled with names.  Right now I can't fall in love with ANY names and it's frustrating.  We've both vetoed all but one of each others' names.  I have "Joanna" for a girl and "Gideon" for a boy.  He has "Lydia" for a girl and "Linus" for a boy.  We are each okay with the other two names, so we're good.  Now it's a matter of picking one AND choosing middle names.  For a boy, I think he is going to get DH's name: "James".  I love that name anyway.  But we've gone round and round with girls names!

 

I THINK we're leaning towards "Gideon James" for a boy.  But "Lydia" and "Joanna" are complete toss ups for me.  I've also toyed with middle names: "Abigail", "May/Mae" (a family name on both sides), "Pearl" (the birthstone of a June baby, huh? huh?), and others that come and go.  I think it's funny that we really like three syllable first names and I feel like I SHOULD pick a one or two syllable middle name.  "Abigail" kind of got stuck in there since it is one of my long time favorite names, but is WAY too popular for our comfort and surname (but would be fine as a middle name).  Also, our first DD has the middle name "Joy", which I LOVE and I've played with the idea of using words like "Faith", "Grace", "Hope", etc. for more middle names, but don't want to get stuck in a rut if we had four girls and don't want to have to pick a name "Just because" even if I am not excited about it.

 

We are not asking friends or family.  Names are TOP SECRET in our house, but I feel stumped.  Does anyone have any input?

post #180 of 188

Erin - I love the name Isla!

 

Josie - I think Pearl is really beautiful and sounds great with Lydia or Joanna.
