caedenmomma- I can see with that spelling, living here in the South, she would have to clarify it at every opportunity it was spelled or called. I can hear it now... ME lee? MY lee? Then, they would just move on to mispronounce her last name too. :D
DS is Jack and Silas is on my list for #2:) Good taste!
I'm lucky, DH doesn't have to agree since he named DS, both first and middle (after him, both family names, tradition), so it's my turn;)
We don't know what we're having and my top choices are
Daisy (middle, Faith, Prayer, I dunno, I wanted something biblical)
Atreyu (middle, once again biblical, Silas?)
Middles have yet to be decided, obviously. I'm also not set on these names in case babe comes and it just doesn't fit. So I have tons of girl backups, but not as many boys. Girl names are so easy, i have lots of favorites, maybe it'll be a boy and we won't have to worry about it!
So are you having triplets? I ask b/c your siggie says twins?
I'm 38 weeks today. We don't know what we're having so naming this child hasn't been easy!
Tonight we finally decided on what will probably be our childs name.
If its a girl:
If its a boy:
I say probably because we ended up changing our mind with my son after we saw his sweet face for the first time!
It feels good to sort of have some type of idea though!
Here! Not a clue. We don't know what we are having, and we have a list of both boy and girl names that are "ok," but nothing that is jumping out as those ones. Hoping that when the baby arrives, we will just 'know' what his/her name is. That happened with our son...no name going in, but once he was born and we say him, his name just came to us.
We have had a boy name picked out from the very beginning, but girl names are a bit harder this time. DH hasn't given me any ideas at all, but doesn't really like the two girls names I have in my head. Our boy name is Issac Marshall and I like Coraline and Teagan so far, when it comes to girl names. With our first child we had not agreed on a name either. As soon as he was born, I said to DH it's Asher or Lyric? He said he liked Asher better, there was no arguing at that point since he had just watched me labor for 15 hours. With our daughter Evangeline we had it picked out long in advance. I'm sure this baby will be a girl since we haven't agreed on a name yet. We will do the wait and see approach again, I guess
DH and I fought up until the very end with DS2 and it actually ended up coming down to a bet (which I won). And we named him Noah.
I like honoring family, but hate Jr's, III's, etc. My oldest son is named after his father (previous marriage) and I hate the confusion. I also hate nicknames for the most part. Ex-DH's family calls him Shawnee to differentiate (his name is Shawn) and it drives me nuts. He is the III. So this time when we wanted to honor family, I said it could not be an identical name to a family member. DH's family is Russian (father lived there until he was in his 20's) and he typically calls our children and DH' and his siblings by the Russian versions/nicknames of their name (which surprisingly doesn't bother me.. we call our son Noah Noi usually). So this time when we found out we were having a boy we decided to name him after DH's brother. His name is Michael, which I'm not particularly fond of, so we are naming him the Russian nickname of Michael, which is Misha. DH's family also has a tradition that the father's first name is the middle name. I think all of our sons (since we have only boys!) with the same middle name is totally boring... so we are hyphenating this baby's middle name with DH's first, FIL's first. So all together we get Misha Andrew-Arkady A- (our incredibly Russian unpronounceable A last time)
I also absolutely love picking gender neutral names. This time we decided whether it was a boy or a girl, the name would be Misha. If he ended up being a girl we'd alter the spelling to Mischa.
I LOVE the names Jack and Charlie. I just told DH if we ever have another baby we should just choose Charlie, boy or girl. He wrinkled his nose at me. But I have a classical "boys" name (Jesse) and I like being a little different.
