Clementine runs a fast second to our Calliope. I dont like Clemmy though, and Im scared of having a Clementine near Valentine's day.

We have had our girl's name picked out for some time-- Willa (and it means to hope/wish/desire) and middle name something like Joy, Faith, or maybe Jane

 

Boy's names we like-- Owen, Russell (both family names), Brennan

DH and I had a discussion about this again last night and decided that we're sticking with Alexander for the time being. Mostly because it's flexible for nicknames; I like Zan and he likes Alex. Might get confusing for baby, but I'm pretty sure I can sway hubby toward Zan ;)

Hi! This is a fun thread :)

 

We settled on a short list of names for both genders (we probably won't find out again this time)

Boys: Ryder, Talan, Lincoln

Girls: Cadence (Cady for short), Cora, Hazel

 

Who knows though, in nine months I might completely change my mind!

Oh my goodness! You guys are so good with names. We struggle very much with coming up with names that have meaning and that we love. Our youngest son wasn't named until he was already born. His name is Liam (not William) and I totally agree that it has become SOOO popular in the last year.

 

We tend to go towards Celtic and English names due to my family's heritage, but my husband's side is French so we may be able to throw that into the mix.

 

We don't find out the gender until birth, so I think that adds to the challenge.

What about Zander... since it seems like you're a Joss Whedon fan.  ;)

 

I really like the name Inara too, but DH vetoed it.

 

We have a girl name and a boy name picked out but aren't sharing the info with anyone.

 

My former favourite girl name is my username, and I would have hyphened it as Sophie-Ann, followed by a middle name.  But, Sophie has gotten too popular for me to use it, and I've moved on to other favourites - that was 5 years ago after all.

There are a lot of beautiful names on this thread!  DH and I have had names picked out for a while.  Patrick James and Theresa Rose :)

Love all the names (except for D'Brickashaw, lol).

 

We have had our boys names picked for time now, I have actually never shared it so this is exciting: Holden with either Christopher or Maxwell as the middle name.

For a girl out top runners are: Aila (like prounounced like Eye-la like Alaskanmomma's Isla) and Ava not sure about middle name yet but it will probably be a family name.

A good childhood friend of mine just named her girl Aila. I had never heard of it before. Where did you find it?

post #51 of 265

If it's a boy it'll be Jasper Henricus (middle name after my dad) and if it's a girl it'll be Cordelia Maria (middle name after my sister & aunt)

Olive, Clementine and Isla are such fantastic girls names. None, unfortunately, that my husband will agree to. We're really trying to figure out some sort of loose "style" we can stick with since we hope to have a large family. I've pretty much obsessively been reading Swistle for at least three years! haha :)

 

We have a LONG list of names we're mulling over. We tend to like Celtic names (husband's side), Slavic names (my side) and Catholic names in general. Both of us are old-fashioned and tend towards old-fashioned names as opposed to trendy or frilly. That said, we certainly have a motley crew of names so far. 

 

For girls, we like: Elinor, Tessa, Sylvie, and Vera (middle name will probably be Regina after my husband's grandmother)

For boys, we like: Rhys, Everett, Theo, and Augustine 

post #53 of 265

Vera is one of my favorite girl names! Also a fan of Tessa-- I was almost named Tess and sort of wish I had been.

post #54 of 265

ohhh, totally forgot about swistle! I'm so going there right now to catch up the past year I've missed!

My DH won't even talk about the baby yet so the name discussion won't happen for a while. ; ) (He's just feeling a little overwhelmed - our girls have been a handful these days.) But we have a definite Irish theme going on. DD#1 is Moira and DD#2 is Fionnuala (Fin-oo-la). I even have an Irish-names app on my phone which I use for when I am reading Irish fairy tales or myths to my girls. I really love the name Orla but it sounds a bit too much like Moira. Other contenders are: Oona, Clodagh, Roisin (ro-sheen) and Cliona (Clee-o-na). I'm sure once we start talking about it there will be others. I also really love the name Eimear (ee-mer) but I would worry about her being called Elmer!

 

Obviously my names are girl-focused right now. That's because I'm used to having girls. Our boy name was always Oscar Patrick but I think I'm done with Oscar. I'm thinking Oisin (o-sheen) this time.

Online baby names.  My daughter has an A  (Aurora) name so I was looking for another one, not sure if we will do that theme yet but I do like Aila a lot.

I have friends and their names are Emer (Eimear) and Roisin...they are gorgeous names!

Melli-mello, Not that it matters what I think <grin> but when I read your list I thought Oona sounds great with your girls names!

Mellie! It's Viv...wow we are in same DDC! How cool is that?
I got the biggest smile reading your post and then realized it was you.
Congrats!
Love the names and can't wait to see what you pick.

We picked our names out for either boy or girl back last year and I am superstitious to say them before I am in 2nd trimester. I looked them up and none of our choices are in the top SS 1000 even for 2011 which surprises me a bit bc they aren't weird or anything.
The girl name is French, starts with a C and has lots of good nickname potential. The middle name is a nature name.
The boy name is a nature name that begins with a B and goes great w our last name. Not sure yet on middle names for a boy name. The ones I like would give him unfortunate initials...BO, BS. So back to the drawing board on that part...maybe Robert for my father or Quinn?

I wanted to add to the poster who was thinking Inara...love love love this! Great character and great name. My last DDC had a baby named Malcolm for Captain Tightpants himself smile.gif

We are thinking Thalia for a girl, but we need an O middle name to go with it and there aren't many o choices that don't end in an a.  

 

For a boy Taryn is an option, but it might be too girly.  BF still wants D'Brickashaw, but it isn't happening.
