I am convinced that Rebecca is the way to go! We will know next week if we need to use that girls name or if it's Little James! Thanks for your imput ladies- I really do appreciate it.

I totally forgot about Becca.  I like Becca!  I was only thinking of Becky...which always makes me think of "Oh. My. God. Becky.  Look at her butt.  It's like so big.  It's just like...out there.  She looks like one of those rap guys girlfriends..."  Oh man.  Sorry for everyone who has that song stuck in their head now.  :\

OMG, I remember listening to that song, especially the intro, on repeat at a sleepover in grade school.

Yep, in my head now hahaha!!  it's a good song, though so I don't mind :P

ok now I am totally singing that song too! I think of the old tv show Life Goes On when I think of the name Becca! When I think of Becky, I think of Roseanne and I also think of Becky Bloomwood the main character in Confessions of a Shopaholic. I have NOT seen the movie but I love the books, they are hilarious.

I have a Charlotte too - who was born in 2001 - and it did seem super fresh then (despite being a Sex and The City character).  Her twin is Nicholas (whoo-boy are there a lot of Nicholases - still my personal fave boy name though).  Just wanted to add that I think Charlotte, Deacon and Rebecca (or James) all sound great together.

Normally I don't share names, but I need some input here.

 

So DH told me this morning that his mind is made up for our boy's name, whereas I'm still looking at a list of possibles (his names are on my short list, I just hadn't narrowed it down that far).  We've had our girl name picked out for years.

 

He wants Xavier.  My big beef with Xavier is the lack of easy nickname. 

 

DS has a short name, with a possible nn of his initials (AJ).  But I'm not seeing anything with Xavier (and the middle name isn't any better on the nn front).

 

Any thoughts or suggestions on nicknames?  That's really my only concern with this name - it just seems too long for everyday use to me.

Cristeen - I know three Xaviers. Two are called Zavy (z only used for pronunciation) and the other is called "Little X" granted, he's also like 3 months old right now.

I love that you named your daughter Charlotte in 2001 :) I love Nicholas too- great twin names, very well paired. Thank you very much for thinking that my names sound good together. I am so picky about that. I want them to look nice when they are written together. I want the number of syllables to flow when I say the names in a group and I really REALLY love Charlotte, Deacon and Rebecca now (or James- I simply adore the name James). Thank you again for your kind words.

I'm biased but I love the name Rebecca!  (That's my oldest dd's name).  A classically beautiful name.

post #131 of 363


That's awesome! I am LOVING all the responses that the name Rebecca has received- now I need a baby girl named Rebecca June :)

Also maybe Julia or Juliet for a girl, Samuel or Emmet for a boy.



I've also loved the name Violet for a while, (as well as Viola or Violetta) it was my great grandmother's name, but I'm a little worried about it becoming so popular that it will feel dated in a few years, the way Brittany & Tiffany feel very specifically 1980's. My husband says don't worry about that, just pick a name you like!

post #133 of 363

I <3 Viola.

 

I'm totally crushing on Colin James for a boy today but it seems so ordinary to me. My DDs name is ordinary in Poland but in the US it's very unique. Is it weird to have one child with a super unique name and one child with a very plain name?

 

DH wants to name a boy Zane now...

i like xavier a lot! i thought about it, because i have an x in my name (roxanne) and so does my husband (braxton--we both have o's, too, haha). i dunno about nicknames, sometimes they're unrelated to the actual name--when i was a kid my mom called me tootsie. 

 

we found out we're having a boy (well, husband doesn't know yet--he wanted it for an xmas surprise--i didn't want to wait). we had some girl names picked out--ylva, colette, djuna, sage. boy names are so much harder! i most liking the names that have to do with trees--aspen (though, no, recalls a ski resort), oren, linden, sylvan... maybe oren sage. i wish my husband knew so he could help me think of more names :) xmas seems so far away!

Our DS is Xavier! We also have a thing for "X's" We call him Xave or Xavey - and we pronounce the "X" when we say his name X-avier. He really loves his name. joy.gifIncreasing in popularity I think though he's the only one in his preschool.

I love Deacon! Before we knew it was a girl, I was begging hubby to let me name this baby Deacon. He said he didn't like it, but he would do Declan, which is sort of similar. Now that we are just discussing girl names, Hubby really really really would like to use one of his family names -- Irene. I am not vetoing it. I can see it as a middle name I suppose. It just seems like such an adult name. I can't really picture my tiny cute daughter being called Irene. I do like a lot of the "old lady names" that are becoming more popular. In fact, my name list is mainly older sounding names, but Irene... -- what cute nicknames could we use with that? Reenie just sounds like Weenie to me! Perhaps thats just because of my profession. I'm constantly thinking how it could be pronounced by a child.

I love Declan!  His last name will start with a D though, and the double d thing doesn't sound good to me.  Although, other double letters don't bother me.  Sigh.  Names are so hard!

I think you will find a nick name that works... the name I've picked for now (like you DH) but haven't shared with his yet doesn't have an easy nickname, but I am not too worried.  Most of my kid's nicknames just came about and weren't really what we 'thought' we would call them when we originally picked the name... it just evolves. 

 

I love the name Xavier! 

post #139 of 363

Persephassa - I would flip with happiness if I met a baby boy named Sylvan. I have liked Silvio for a long time.

 

Meredith - nns for Irene...maybe Ira, Rye

 

Cristeen - I agree if I had an Xavier I would probably just call him X for short

I love Declan! That was my first choice when I found out I was pregnant and dH was on board but he changed his mind!
