cute little baby names! - Page 2

post #21 of 73

I'm pretty sure for a boy we'll do Benjamin. We already have Matthias, Moses and Judah.

 

For a girl, no idea. We already have Grace and Clementine.

 

These are ones I like, in no particular order:

 

Eva
Thea
Thalea
Aletheia
Adelaide
Mattea
Magdalen
Hazel
Zilla
Ruby
Jemima
Scarlett
Stella
Tahlia
Pearl
Violet
Harper
Mercy
Phoebe

 

Is it okay to do a "color" name like Violet, Ruby or Scarlett when we already have Clementine? (Not exactly a color, but everyone thinks "orange")

We pretty much used up the only name we could agree on on DS (Caleb). This baby's going to be a tough one. For a boy, I like Jonah but I'm not completely in love. For a girl, I'm really liking Eden. DH hates both. This shall be interesting smile.gif

Holly -- I love your list!  And I see Hazel on there, which is a color, but not so overt of a color name... and it happens to be my dd4s name (Hazel Jane... born on her great-grandmother Mary Jane's birthday).  And I love Magdalen!  (but, already having a Madeline as dd1 would be too much, I think!)!

 

Names are amazing and fun and really carry so much meaning!!

We don't announce the real name until the birth, but we have lots of fun coming up with fake names. Last pregnancy we were claiming it would be Aethelthryth Brunhilde for a girl, and Gunther Wolfgard for a boy; and people believed me! This time around, our fake names are Fecundity Algorithm for a boy, and Verisimilitude Redundancy for a girl.

 

The only thing we're 100% on for real names is that there will be three. My daughter is Evelyn Rose Leslie, and I really like 2 middle names.

If it's a girl, we're definitely going with Margaret Louise. A boy'll be a little trickier--we like Miles, but aren't totally sold, and don't have any middle name ideas at all.

I *love* Hazel Jane!! I think Hazel is in the top 3 girls names for me. I'll test it out on DH.  =]

My girls all have 2 middle names and this one will too.

 

I am LOVING some of the names you all have posted, they have been on my lists for a while.

Hazel, Mabel, Jemima, Chaucer, Harper, Scout.

 

Hubs is not okay with any of those, so we move on.

 

I am stuck on Kate/Katie for a girl. Thinking using my sisters middle names(and one first) Kathryn Meredith Jolie. I have wanted to use Cady after Elizabeth Cady Stanton but am annoyed with the spellin gof my first daughter's name Jewely, I wish we had just done Jewel and am hesitant to use another different spelling.

 

Currently our top boy name Is Whitaker William Maxwell. William is Hubs middle name and first or middle name for his dad, grandpa and great grandpa. Maxwell is my maiden name. We'd call him Whit.

Names are so fun!  I'm really loving Cecilia Blythe if this is a girl.  Also like Adrienne, but not as much.  Boys are SO much harder!  We like names that are classic, but NOT popular-- with boys it seems like you either have very common or way out there.  I like Sebastian a lot, but dh isn't wild about it.  We both like Duncan.  Middle name might be Jules or Julian.  I also LOVE Theodore, but dh thinks he'd be teased because of the Chipmunks.

 

ETA:  just checked the SSA website, and Sebastian is in the top 100-- bummer!

DH "decided" on a boy name before DD was born, and I'm going to let him have it, provided he doesn't give me any crap about not circing a boy.  The name is Zane Archer.  Zane for Zane Grey, the American author/fisherman, and Archer off of the tombstone of a civil war era hero.  We thought it was a strong name.

 

If its a girl, her middle name will be Jean, to follow her maternal great-grandma, maternal grandma, and me.  First name will be tough.  I really like Adele, but of course there's Adele, so that's a no-go.  DH also has an employee with that name.  I like Berol (Beryl?) and Adia, neither of which are cool with DH.  So we'll see.  He's more traditional....I like Adalaide a lot, and Vera--those have both been mentioned.

 

My best friend just had twins and named them Harrison and Warren.  They don't seem like baby names at all, but I love them now.

post #31 of 73

We have the name Serenity Silver if she is a she, or Lucian Gabriel for a he.

 You all have beautiful/wonderful names on your lists.

good thing you looked up Sebastion, I was goign to say there was 3-4 sebastions in my daughters school of 80 kids.

 

I told somwe people I liked Kate and all of them said "Oh that's nice" in a way that sounded like they thought it was very plan and not a very good name. : ( I wonder if that's the reaction most peopel would have if we named her that.

post #35 of 73

My name is just plain Kate-- I feel like there are a lot of us (both my age and in the younger crowd)  I like it well enough, but have sometimes found it annoying that people would try to be smart by calling me Kathleen or Catherine and I had to correct them.

post #36 of 73
i love ursula but apparently that was the name of an evil witch in a disney movie. Any ursula ive ever met irl has been very sweet strong and amazing

i think we're going to wait till we meet the baby this time. Last time we had a name picked out but when he was born it just didnt suit at all.
post #37 of 73

Anyone else making progress on this? We've finally gotten middle names I think. If baby is a boy, he seems to have named himself in a dream I had (I didn't even know he had a name until I looked at his label on the bassinet in the dream LOL). It'll most likely be Quinn Michael (although a mushy part of me is feeling somewhat inclined to go with Bradley Douglas...he'd be a junior...anyone having opinions on these boys names, I'd love outside input). For a girl I think it'll be Chelsea Paige. It's nice to know that unless another baby pops in there unexpectedly we're set on names :D

My name is actually Casey, but I hated it so much as a child that I've always gone by Kate.  People did the same thing with Casey--"oh, what's that short for?  Catherine?"  Nope.  eyesroll.gif  My mom says, in retrospect, she would have given me a more business-card tested name and shortened it.  It didn't stop me though. winky.gif

Funny, I did think of that Ursula, but I also thought of Phoebe's "evil" twin on Friends.  I guess that sort of dates me.  I like to hear all of the negativity up front, especially from strangers, so you know what the kid is going to hear 1000 times in elementary school.

I like Bradley--I'm neutral on Douglas, but if it's a family name, that is meaningful.  In my family, the women pass on a middle name and the men pass on the first name.  So my dad is Daniel X--and my brother is Daniel R---.   Sorry if this is dumb, but is Chelsea said "CHEL-see" or "Chel-SEE-ah"?  It is a good name.

 

As for us, DH and I spent one evening going through names on nymbler.com and we came up with something of a list....  We have a boy name, but I think this is a girl.  A girl's middle name will be Jean, and it has to sort of go along with DD's name (Aubrey Ruth).  The other issue is some of my favorites end with an "n" which doesn't sound great with Jean.  So I don't know.  We're still at a stopping point I guess until we see for sure what the sex is.

 

Here's what we've got--some of them DH would never go for, but I left them on because I like them anyway.

Teagan 

Darcey

Bailey (popular, I think, also a common dog's name like my own)

Morgan

Avery (popular, I think)

Mallory (too '80's?)

Macey

Eden

Autumn

Beryl (too weird for DH)

Coral

Eva

Daliah

Caroline 

Norah 

Lilian 

Eleanor 

Miriam

Noelle

Piper

Sadie (once had a dog with this name, my parents would flip)

Marion (a family name, which I love, but the double n-thing...)

Natalie (too popular)

Lainey (maybe short for Elaine or Eleanor or something?)

Vera (too weird for DH)

 

Any input or suggestions would be awesome!

 

post #39 of 73

Kate, it's Chel-SEE (like Chelsea Clinton only not named after her).16 And I love Marion, and don't think the double n thing sounds so bad with Marion Jean.

We're set, and have been set, on a girl's name since well before our marriage. Adeline Rose, after his maternal grandmother and paternal great aunt (both Adelines) and me, my mom, and grandma (all middle-name Roses).

 

We are set-but-not-set on a boy's name. I came up with one, DH loved it, we decided. Then I waffled, worried about the deeper meanings of the name (mischeif, deception, fury, war, death). The name means victory, wisdom, magic, and might too. It basically means everything. And I'm not allowed to divulge it, so I can't get feedback on it! So I voice my waffling to my steadfast DH. And started to love it again, and then because quite happy and firm in my love. Only to find that DH is now waffling. 

 

We can't even come up with a list of alternatives. Nothing stands up to this one in our heads. I don't know why we don't just "decide" already. Heh. I think it'll cement when we find out if we're having a boy or girl. :)

 

Anyone else stuck on one name, and one name only, but waffling?
