Baby name roll call! - Page 3

post #41 of 51

We are having a boy...Griffin Brian! (Brian after my FIL who passed away young last October.) People keep asking me if I like Family Guy. I finally looked into why they were asking me that and found out one of the characters names is Brian Griffin...that has nothing to do with his name:) Oh and we are not Harry Potter fanatics either. We just loved the name Griffin and of course wanted to honor our dad :) If we ever have a girl her name will be Elouise (after my grandmother Helen Louise).

 

I really like the name Harper and Hawke!

This baby is Catherine Diane. Diane is my mom's name, and Catherine has always been my #1 baby name. Harper is a big favorite of mine, too - I think its a great name. smile.gif

We've decided on Kai for our little boy which means sea/ocean. I'm from the Carribean and really wanted a name that would tie him to his roots, given we live SO far away from the Carribean. I didn't want to do anything in Spanish, and so I island hopped, ended up in Hawaii, and there you have it!

 

We were convinced we were having a girl until right before our only u/s when I told DH we HAD to find a boy name. No middle name, a) because it took too much work to agree on the one we found, and b) because he's getting a hyphenated last name...it just seems like too much.

 

RavenRT, my sister's name is Marley, and it is the most fun name ever! Whenever she introduces herself she says "Marley, as in Bob"...super rare too, I've never met another one!

We're having trouble agreeing on a name.  BF doesn't really like Violet--he says he doesn't hate it, but he doesn't seem to love it either.  I on the other hand, have really bonded with the name and kind of have my heart set on it now.  And since he hadn't given me any other suggestions, I was sort of thinking that would end up being the name.  But now he came up with one he likes.  I don't hate his name either, it's quite nice actually, but I just really do have my heart set on Violet.  He likes Raine.  I think Raine would make a great middle name.  I hate to not use his name because he was feeling left out that I've made most of the decisions this pregnancy and really want to give his suggestion a fair shake, but I just don't know.  It's a nice name, but it just doesn't feel like The Name to me.

 

So our little girl is still nameless.  :(

Marley! I LOVE THAT! And I love how she clarifies it! When I introduce myself people sometimes don't hear it correctly...sometimes they think my name is Raisin.. haha that makes me giggle. So now I say "Raven...like the bird." :) I like that. But I really love the name Marley! I am going to have to keep that in my back pocket!

 

Kai is a wonderful name! and I love that it is connected to your roots! Very beautiful!

Raisin...that's hysterical :)

Whichever way you go, that's one lucky baby! It is quite a list though...and not entirely too much time left!

We're naming our little man Alfie, but we have yet to pick a middle name.  I had a really hard time with picking anything this time.  We had such a short list of names for ds last time, and I even joked that we couldn't have another baby because if we had a boy, I wouldn't know what to name him.  Well, here we are.  And since my short list from last time, I've met friends who have kids with almost all those names. My second choice last time was Noam (sounds like no-um), but since then my cousin had a baby born still who she named Noah, so I think it's too close to his name.  I didn't really want to ask her because I didn't want her to feel like she had to say it was ok, even if it bothered her.  So we just abandoned the name, sadly.  Oh well, I like Alfie a lot.  

 

DS's original choices for this baby were-- Pasta Boy, Suitcase, and Oliver (which is his name).  But as it turns out, he loves the name we picked. :)

Hahahah

 

My kids have chosen:


Sunbutter-to-go but if it's a girl it will be Sunbutter-and-Jelly-to-go.

 

DH and I have no idea.  I guess I just don't stress about this stuff.  Neither of our kids were named before Day 3 (DD was more like Day 5 I think?).  I like to see the baby cause sometimes the name that comes is so not one we would have thought before we saw them!

 

I do like Pasta Boy though ;)  lol

The name we chose, well actually out 3-year old kind of chose it, I've bonded with as well, but same situation, DH says he likes it and it's "ok", but I can't get him to say it's "the" name.  His two choices are nice as well but I can't say they're favorites of mine, one reminds me a little bit of an ex, his older sister who died tragically quite young had the name, it's not really an issue, it's a very long ago ex that I never kept touch with, but I keep thinking if that's what pops into my head now, when I hear that name I'd hate to name my baby that and have that same thought everytime I hear her name, just doesn't seem right.  On the other hand, I've held off calling the baby by the name we chose, Sydney, so I don't get too attached to it in case he changes his mind, but he's been calling her that.  I'm thinking once we see her we'll know for sure.  For our son we toyed with the name Axel James (or another J middle name so he could go by AJ), Axel was one of my grandfather's middle names, which I was surprised to learn has become quite popular, but as soon as he was born our first pick, Brady, suited him so much that no other name would work. 

Good luck but I really think you'll both know once she's born!

If it's a girl she will probably be Althea. If it's a boy we have NO idea. One name we like is Miles, but I'm not totally sold. If it's a boy DH really wants his middle name to be Jacob after his best friend who passed years ago...it was also my grandpa's middle name. I need more boy names if anyone has any ideas!!
