We just started talking names again tonight. For a girl we're pretty set on Catherine Elizabeth (my Great-Grandmother's and Grandmother's names) but we're kind of clueless for a boy's name this time around. Which is weird because last time (even before we knew we were having a boy) we had all sorts of boy's names we liked but no girl's names.
I think part of the problem is we used up all the "family" boys names we liked on DS. I'm sorry, but I'm not naming my child Fennel, or Everett, or Wesley no matter how much each one of them meant to me. Hmm, although Robert might work (my true Grandfather's name, "Grandpa" was actually technically our step-Grandfather). Also, DS ended up with two middle names (John Thomas) so I'm wondering if we should continue that tradition or just go for one middle name this time 'round.
Our rule is absolutely no names that are on the in the provincial top 10 list. Otherwise we like less common but still "normal" names. Yeah, we're boring.
Our second DD's name is Catherine Felicity. We call her Cate.
We're Catholic and name all our kids after saints--Bridget Mary, Catherine Felicity, and Luke Robert. DH and I haven't started discussing names yet, but he tends to defer to me, anyway.
I'm liking "Magdalen(e)", "Adelaide" and "Juliana" for a girl, and "Finnian", "Cyprian" and "Dominic" for a boy.
There's still plenty of time for me to change my mind, though.
