baby names

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 

It's still pretty early but I think that this baby will never have a name! I usually have one picked out for both sexes by now, but I'm at a loss. Do any of you have names picked out yet? Care to share ideas? 

post #2 of 63

For now, these are my first choices;

 

boy: Nico Braden (Braden is a middle name in dh's family that goes back four generations)

girl: Milou Lucia

 

 

My boy name came to me immediately, and I have had a harder time with a girl name, which is totally not typical for me. Boy names were always harder for me. Dh has to vote on my choices still :-)

Only one. It came to me the day before I even knew I was pregnant (which is why I think it is meant to be).  I am 99% sure I am having a girl so the name has just stuck.

 

My middle name, my moms middle name and my grand mothers first name is Charlotte. I feel like this is the last chance for me to carry the name on to the next generation. So, even though the name is getting so popular we are going to use it.

 

As for the middle name....it will be my MIL's (who is the best mother in law I ever could have asked for) middle name...Adele. Again, a name that is gaining popularity, which I hate, but I don't think that it is popular enough to make me not use it.

 

I have NO other girl names and I don't have any boy names...but I don't think I will need one. winky.gif

Great names! 

 

Funny, I was so sure with each child. With dd, I KNEW I was having a girl, same with ds. I can't for the life of me get a read on this little one. I don't think we will find out either, so I wonder if I will feel this way through the whole pregnancy.

Names I'm liking right now are:

Girl: Emmaline, Ophelia, & Rosalind

Boys: Emmerson, Dexter

 

But nothing is sticking out to me! I really like the longer names that start with a vowel, as both of my daughter's names are. (Addysen, Elliot.) 

I kind of want to stick with that theme, but am also willing not to... We'll see. I need more ideas!

Dh and I both decided if we ever had another it would be Leo which I still like. Not sure on the middle name...maybe Samuel in honor of my dh's mentor.

 

Girls name are harder. I really love Phoebe which was on our short list for my youngest. But now dh hates it. I also like Ursula (I'm a DH Lawrence fangirl).

At the moment we have about 3 or 4 names for a girl, and about the same for a boy.

Unfortunately about two of each set has become extremely popular here, which makes me not want to use them! Its not like I want something completely off the wall, but I don't want the kid suffering from "Oh Wow, I have 9 other blah-blah's in my school class!"

 

We aren't finding out the sex, which weirdly seems to make naming much easier for me! Im just not going to worry about it til I meet him or her!

We're not getting very far with names over here. I'm glad we have several more months. DS' name was easy. We did the traditional Mexican thing and gave him DH's name, which is also FIL's name. But DS goes by his middle name, which was DH's paternal grandfathers name. So DS has a very patrilineal, Spanish name. I'd like to keep to that theme and give this baby a family name, perhaps from my side. And it has to sound good in English and Spanish. There's not too many names like that in my Anglo family tree. Honestly it's not been a very fun conversation to have with DH so I've just tabled it in my mind until we find out the sex. At least that way we'll only have to go through half the list :-P

Sebastian for a boy & Isabella for a girl, so far.  I am American, married to a Danish man & living in Denmark, so we want to pick names that will be pronounced the same in either country.  Also, it is tradition to give the baby a surname from both of us, which I like.  My last name is Young and thee are no boys to carry the name on, so I am honored to do it!  We are just deciding on which of my husbands last name to use.  Hansen, which is easy to pronounce, but super common, or Tofterup, which is harder to pronounce, but carries more family tradition.  However putting any combination of all three names together makes for a long name!!

For girls names I feel like we have a solid set that we will likely grab from, Tabitha Wren, Annabel Harper, Charlotte Sage, Guinevere______?....for boys names we're a little hard up. We have lots of ideas but nothing solid. We have two daughters: Emily and Penelope and we have a son Henry and I love how their names vibe together, but am pretty stuck with boy names right now, lol. I love your ideas mamas!!

After 8 kids we mint not have one till birth, which would be typical.

Right now dh likes Sophia which I am not sure of. Nathaniel os my boys name.

Sera for a girl, long story but she is a little spirit who has followed me around since I was pg with Gabe in 2001. I've begged her to join our family this time, so if she's a she, she gets the name. Possiby Dawn for a middle name, it was DP's mom's name, she passed away when he was 10.

 

Boys - no clue. Athan didn't have a name for almost a week after he was born. Unless something comes to us before the birth, he may have to just wait so we can see who he is.

i love the name sera!

if we have a girl she will be seraphim, but called sera. not sure on a middle name. maybe wendy, or lake, which are both family names.

if we have a boy he will either be asa jude, or archer daniel.

post #16 of 63

mamadiamond - in our case, it will be short for Seradwynn :) But if we use that, the middle name won't be Dawn, So it will either be Sera Dawn or Seradwynn something lol. I like Archer! May have to steal that one!

ATM, I'm having a very hard time concentrating on boy's names.  From experience, I know that this doesn't necessarily mean anything!  I wanted to use Archer, in honor of DH's grandfather whose full name was Archie (which I don't especially like) but it is getting pretty popular and that's a no-no for me (I'm not snobby about other people using popular names, don't worry, I just don't want to!)  So now I'm like, uhhhhh - I don't know.

 

For a girl I really kind of like Juniper or Genevra.  But I don't know that DH is down with either one.  I really like Starling, but only if the baby has really dark hair.  Which I do, but none of our 3 existing kids do - they are all dirty blond, blond, or light brown.  Our DD's name is "Day" although she is called Daisy, and I think both of those kind of evoke the 20s & 30s for me - so maybe we should look at other names from that era.  But our one absolute requirement is that some part of the name must have a common meaning other than as a name.  So the field is limited!  I'd like to use Laura as a middle name since that was DH's grandmother's name and nobody else has named after her yet.  But it doesn't go fabulously well with any of my favorite first names.

 Love Rosalind for a girl. 

 

Not sure if this makes a difference to you, but Emerson is becoming a super popular girl's name in my area. I know three of them under 2!

We're having major name debates. If we have a boy, we've got name problems. My sister tagged the only boy's name DH and I agree on. duh.gif Her wedding is this summer, but she and her FH won't TTC for another year or so... not sure what to do. 

 

A girl's name is pretty much set... but neither DH nor I think this baby is a girl.

Oh this happened to a fried of ours!! She loved the name "Sadie", and her friend popped right before she did and had a girl and named her that!!

Thats why part of me wants to keep names private (from people in real life) and part of me wants to share and stake a claim lol
