We are more traditional namers. Not popular, more like early 1900s names... We already have a Lucy and a Charlotte. I am surprised that we have any boy names that we agreed on... only last week, we couldn't see eye to eye on any of them!
Our short list for boys so far in order of current preference:
Max (we are fighting over Maximilian(< DH) and (me >)Maxwell)
Short list for girls in order of current preference:
Problem is, If we settle on either Violet or Rose now, we cannot use the other as a first name in the future (I don't want too flowery a family!) Soo.... I don't know.
It will be our first time not finding out the sex (as long as we don't cave at the last minute), and we will need a minimum of two complete names (one for each sex) by the time baby arrives. I am sure it is do-able! :D
I'm with you on Maxwell!
I've been thinking about Elizabeth as a middle name, especially since I love the nickname "Zibby," and I think Willow Elizabeth is a pretty name.
Wow! So many great names. We haven't really even begun to talk about names, but probably because we already have at least one decided on. Our son didn't get his name until about 2 hours after he was born (it's Liam), so that gives you an idea on our priority on names.
We've decided to use family names as middle names. For the girl, I'm sure we'll go with Darcy (Darci, D'arcy) Jeanne. It was our carryover from pregnancy 1.
For the boy, I really like Micah Griffeth, but we had two that we considered for DS that we didn't use - Caellum (Kay-Lum) & Rylan(d).
I'm sure some more will come as we move along. Our last name is Jones, so we like to have a celtic-sounding hint to our kids' names.
I like Darcy (that spelling), but DP doesn't like it. I like Micah but it sounds weird with our last names.
