We are having a boy, nows it seems harder to choose a name . I dont want anything too popular. but kind of modern & traditional. the meaning of the name means alot to me as well. 

 

 

 

 

darius - maintains possessions well
solomon - peaceable
judah - praised, "this time I will praise the Lord".
silas - forest, woods
luke - the beloved physican 
uziah - the Lord is my strength 
jeriah - taught by God

My neighbor and midwife named  their son, Elohi which is hebrew and cherokee (pronounced like it looks) and their daughter, Iolanthe (eye-oh-lan-thee) greek.

We are back to the drawing board.... We are scrapping all the names we came up with.

 

Dying here.  I woke up at 5ish and couldn't go back to bed because I was thinking of boy names.  

 

Anyone have ideas?  

 

Rules:

No names that can be shortened to nic-names

Must fit well with Charles (middle name)

Last name starts with M and sounds very english

DDs names: Chloe Annabelle, Hannah Clare

Nothing too hippy or natural sounding

 

We are back to square 1

 

Names we have liked in the past:

Liam, Oliver, Lincoln, Emmett

i like your past list of names! especially oliver. 

 

i'm also glad to see i'm not the only one who likes names that aren't typically shortened to nicknames!

 

some ideas:

 

henry

milo

oscar

everett

patrick (i know this breaks the shortening rule, but i don't think people shorten to 'pat' as much these days)

owen

I'm also not a fan of names that are automatically shortened. I picked my boys' names with that in mind, but of course now I find myself calling Walker "Wally" most of the time! Younger son is named Errol and there's no nickname there-- we call him Eggroll or Eggman as a nickname but that most likely won't continue into adulthood. At least he hopes.

 

Hmm boys' names that can't be shortened.... Mason, Quinn, Jonah?

 

I like all that were listed, especially Oliver, Oscar and Owen. Maybe I just like Os.

I also don't love nicknames.. growing up as "catie" with my name being Catherine, I vowed to name my kids whatever they will be called!

 

I love

 

Liam

Owen

Aaron

Miles (though this probably wouldn't sounds great with Charles)

Oliver

Logan

Caleb

Samuel

Silas

I like Josiah and Jude. My husband is a Michael and so many people assume he likes to be called Mike, which he doesn't. I think it annoys me more than it does him, but still, I know what you mean. One of our goals with our kids names has always been something that isn't typically shortened. 

post #208 of 265

I have pretty much convinced my hubby that I won't go for D'Brickashaw, so now we have a few on our list...

 

We are using Thomas as the middle name after his father.

 

Jaxon

Keenan

Lucian

Demetrius

and at the top right now is Ryken

 

 

We are wanting a less used name.  I really like names with nicknames, but haven't come up with any good ones.  

post #209 of 265

I'm needing help coming up with a girl name. We are having identical twins in Feb. and have pretty much decided on Acacia for one of the names. Pronounced Uh-kay-sha. We don't have any middle names picked out yet. We don't like anything trendy or top 20 and also want each girl to have their own unique name (nothing that rhymes or sounds really similar). Also want to somewhat shy away from doing another "A" name as we would then have 3 daughters with "A" names and one without... Last name is Blakley with a long a. Any help is appreciated. 

post #210 of 265

I found out I was having a girl about 2 or 3 weeks ago, & we have finally agreed on Kynlee Anne!

post #211 of 265

we are still throwing around boy names:

 

Jacob - only issue i have with it, is that it has been #1 for the past 10 years in the US

Silas - its getting popular, i dont know if i like that

Nazareth - maybe the opposite problem, its not popular at all! 

post #212 of 265

The girl names we agree on are  Ivy or Maybelle.  I also like Margaret (after my mom).  I'm having a hard time with the name, my son's name is Anthony which I love but I havn't found a girl name I'm sure about yet.

post #213 of 265

I think we've finally picked names. Im not sure if they are the final selections, but they are definitely the ones DH and I agree on right now- which is a big plus.

 

Eleanor Wendy Zoller

Calliope Mae Zoller

 

 

Wendy and Callie :)

 

We have one  backup name too, just in case they dont look like these names fit:

Matilda Jane

post #214 of 265

Oh no! Eleanor is one of our top two as well!  But I think we live far enough away for it not to be a problem :).  We won't use Wendy as a middle name.  I also love Matilda, but can't get DH to agree on it.  We have good friends with a dog named Matilda, and for some reason this disqualifies it for him.

 

Silvia is at the top of the list.  Also thinking about Evelyn, Ruth, Cordelia, and Laurel.  I also love Ivy, ErinClaire!  I'll have to run it past DH, but Viola (DD's name), Silvia and Ivy would be a fun combo.  

post #215 of 265

Im totally cool with our twins having a name in common! I really dont think its a problem. 

 

Evelyn was another one of our big contenders ;) And so was Lauryl. Funny how much we have in common. You should check out that huge name thread I started and see how many more names we have in common.

post #216 of 265

I am loving reading all the great names y'all are coming up with!  We're having a girl and choosing a name has been sooo difficult as DH and I have different tastes....

 

Edith (Edie) -- my fave but DH hates it.

Indigo -- DH's fave. (Pretty certain she'll have blue eyes)

Violet -- after all, amethyst is Feb birthstone

Flora

 

Probably we'll end up going with Indigo but having a tough time picking a middle name to go with it.  Don't want to sound toooo hippie and can't use another color name... 

Such a big decision!!!!

post #217 of 265

So I think we have finally decided on names for our girls as well. Cambrie and Acacia. No middle names yet, but it feels good to have at least their first names figured out. :)

post #218 of 265

All of these beautiful girl names.... I need some boy names!  Still at a stand still for names.  

post #219 of 265

I love Edith/Edie

 

Chloe'sMama what types of names do you like for boys?

post #220 of 265

I would say 'classic' names, but with no nick names....  I can't believe DH and I have nothing on the same list..... Names we had agreed upon for DD1 and DD2 if they were boys:

 

Gavin

Connor

Greyson

 

These are not classic names, but names we like.... others that were on the list but we don't really agree upon:

 

 

Lincoln (DH loves this name, but i do not like it at all)         
Sawyer        
Hudson        
Logan         
Lennon        
Ian              
Garrett         
Emmett  (my favorite, until I realized it is a Twilight name)      
Parker         
Neil            
Elliot           
Jonah                 
Henry            
Dylan
Austin

 

 

DD1 wants Attic and DD2 wants Owl or Owl Dinosaur Buddy
