Thanks for clarifying, honestly I didn't double check, I'm just going from what DP said. I love that it has meanings in other languages but honestly what sold me was the constellation thing.  I'm very into astronomy and star-gazing and was leaning towards Vega or Nova, a lot of the names I like have a similar sound so when he came up with it I was instantly in love!  Baby V :)

We hadn't talked about names at all yet until my partner's two girls found out and started going name-crazy this weekend. The only boy name we all like so far is Linus. It means flax or flaxen - we live on a farm, so are all loving it. Nothing settled for girls names yet...I like Polly (partner is not sold on it), Amelia and Eloise. We also talked about Amaryllis last night (a favourite flower of ours) that could be shortened to either Mary or Amara.

Ingrid Elisabeth has popped up recently a couple of times. So far I love it....but lets give it time to marinate.
For a boy Tor is still a front runner but it needs a middle name still....

My other 4 kids all have 2 1st names (hyphenated), and a middle name, so we'll follow suit with this baby.  If it's a boy, he will be

Ian Fletcher Middleton.  A girl- we are stuck.  We know it will be Rose ~something~ Alethea, we just have to figure out what the ~something~ will be.  We have discussed Lucille, but we're not settled.

I love the name Ingrid.

 

We're thinking more about the name Amarylis for a girl. It means "shining or shimmering" and "sheperdess or country girl". We live on a farm and my partner has a habit of grafting different amarylis flowers together to create new ones. We could do all sorts of names from it to shorten it, but so far we're really liking both Amara or Marilla - Marilla in particular, such a beautiful old name, on its own means "shining sea" - we also live on an island in the sea :)

Penelope is the girl name my DH loves!  I like it okay, though not crazy about it.  I do like Penny, though!

I had been thinking about names almost constantly for the past few weeks, and I'm now on hiatus with no decisions made. DH keeps saying "no" almost immediately to any name I bring up. The only one he has offered so far is Sophie, which is fine, but that is only like the most common name in the country right now. I like Vanessa, Lani, Annalise, Lillian and Cambree. Middle names would be old family names like Helen, Ruth, or June. Right now I'm leaning toward Lani June or Lillian Ruth. But DH isn't sure. And for boys names, I'm stuck. Chances are, we'll have a boy. DH was half joking about names that come from sci-fi shows and came up with Ronan Tiberius. :-/

HAHAHahahahaha, that is literally the worst movie DH and I have ever sat through. Somehow, it just makes DH love the name Penelope even more, and he says Pene a lope about as often as he does the right way. It's either that or "Penneh!!" a la Desmond from Lost....somehow I'm still okay with it smile.gif

lol  I must admit sometimes it makes me love the name even more.

I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with the name choosing...mainly because my 4 kids want to e be a part of the process, but they don't seem to like any of the names that my husband and I pick out.  Either that or they don't want to admit they like those names, because they want us to choose the names they pick out.  One way or the other, I'm about ready to decide that my husband and I will decide on a name and we won't be sharing it with anyone we see face to face until the baby is born.

We can't decided on anything for a boy or girl! Names we sort-of like are Odin, Porter, Fisher and Cael for a boy and Piper for a girl. If we do have a girl, I do know her middle name will be Mado (pronounced Mah-Doh), my late memere's (grandma) nickname. DS2 wasn't named until he was 8 days old, so hopefully we can avoid that this time! :)

We love talking about names!  For girl names, we're thinking about Josephine or Elizabeth with the middle name Mae (I love the idea of a little one named Lizzie Mae). For a boy, I think we're pretty set on Leo with Edward as a possible middle name. Here's the rub: Our last name begins with an O ... would it be mean/ridiculous if little Leo's initials were LEO?

Ms Rabbit I have a good friend that didn't name her baby for 2 weeks! She and her hubby had a wonderful babymoon cuddling and generally fawning over their new little girl, but couldn't come to a decision for a name for so long! They picked a good one, but I hadn't ever known anyone else that took so long.
post #59 of 100

Wow, I don't feel so alone then with taking 8 days! I did find though that the longer we took, the more sleep deprived we became and less able to think clearly. His name suits him know, but it was almost an "I give up, lets just use this name since I can't think anymore"... :P

Thomas James is a family name that Dh has been set on using for ages. hopefully if it's a boy, it suits him...I've never named a baby before I met it before, because my parents picked the wrong one for my baby sister and had to start all over once she was born, which was super stressful for them. of course, we took two weeks to name my last one anyway, so...
we haven't even talked about a girl name yet, but I've been thinking about it. I like Trena, after my great grandmother, and June after my grandfather. I also love Penny, but would have a hard time convincing Dh, because it doesn't mean anything in our family.
