As much as I want a boy I am convinced we are having another girl. She will be named Peyton Avery.

 

*IF* it turns out that I get my wish and this one is a boy, then we have Carter Michael, and or Giaxon Blu picked out. Another option we have is Hudson Michael.

Ugh...for the record I do not generally follow celebrity bullcrap...but a link on MSN said Kourtney Kardashian had a little girl. She named her Penelope. Now I'm worried that it will get super popular all of the sudden! Not cool! Maybe this is a sign that it's not a Penny at all, and it's Henry instead smile.gif

Clarasmama, ugh, don't you hate that? I used to LOVE the name Harper, but now will not use it because of the association with the celebrity family. Nothing against them, I just like my names to be more unique, and once David Beckham uses a name, it is no longer 'unique' :)

I really love unusual names, and my husband is more traditional. Our DS is named Alexander Ross (going only by Xander) and for the second one, we haven't really started thinking about it yet.  We're Team Green so we need to select a couple of names at least.  Right now our frontrunner for a little girl is Avery and for a little boy we're thinking Jasper, but those are just the residuals from last time around. :)  We have also discussed Esme, Sophia and Isabella for a girl and Caleb for a boy and I agreed that if we have a third boy eventually, we can name him David after my DH. :)

I've been thinking I like Ava Juliet if it's a girl.  I wanted DD's middle name to be Juliet as well, but she ended up being born during a snowstorm, and her middle name is now Snow.  :) 

 

We need a first name that will work in my culture as well as in English.  DH isn't a fan of the way Ava is spelled, he thinks people would read it Ahvah, though I personally prefer it to Eva and think it's common enough that most people would get it...  Are there any other ways to spell it?

 

I also love Clara.  I wanted Clara Noelle for a girl with our first child, but he turned out to be a boy.  If this one is born around Christmas, that might actually work rather well, too, without being too cutesy.

 

So I'm down to Clara Noelle or Ava Juliet.

 

If it's a boy, I have no clue.

We've picked our girl name! Assuming baby doesn't come out looking like a completely different name (if that makes sense).  

 

Boy names... we aren't even close and for some reason I can't really even entertain the idea that we could possibly be having another boy. Wonder if that's any indication of what the sex of this baby is. (I was right with my other two.)

My 2 yo niece is Ava, sounding like Ayvuh if that makes sense. My DD is Clara, so I like all of your choices smile.gif

Ay-vuh - yes, that's how I would hope it would be pronounced!  I meant I prefer the spelling Ava to Eva... I think I was a bit sleepy when I wrote my original post.  :)

I do think it's common enough spelled and pronounced that way so that it wouldn't be an issue! To me, Eva is EE-vuh. Ava is only Ah-vah to spanish speakers, maybe Italian as well?

To me, Eva is "eee-va" also.  I liked that name when I was pregnant with #4 but DH said he would always hear it in Wall-E's voice so that was that!  He has already shot down the name Quentin this time around, so I think we're just not going to discuss names again until, ohhhhh, maybe after the baby is born?  winky.gif

I think we're settled with Arlo for a boy and Calliope for a girl.  Of course- assuming the baby comes out and looks like those type of people :)

post #72 of 100

Also- I LOVE asking my son to say the names we like.  It helps everything seem even more real and crazy!

I've never heard Arlo, but I like it.  And I love Calliope!  I've only heard it used on MDC before but it just sounds like a happy name to me.

We've been doing that, too! They both have some favorites, for sure.

We've nailed both our girl and boy names now! Makes me a little more excited to meet this babe to see if they fit them. :D

I think we have a winner if it's a girl.

 

Rowan Aphra.

 

Boys names....urgh, too hard, i can never think of one.  Though i never get a boy, so....

 

ETA that i am an idiot and Rowan is unisex!  So, boy or girl,

 

Rowan.

Lovely!!  I really like Rowan- it was on my list too!

We found out we are having a girl so that helped a lot. We had no ideas for boys names, or at let none we could agree on. Girl, much easier.

Right now, it looks like this little one will be Juliana Sophie
