Names

Do you have any names in mind for your new little ones?

If we have a boy we're leaning towards Jackson Orion and a girl would be Isla Calliope.

I like both of those names! We haven't really agreed on many names yet, but we have some time to figure it out still. We both really think it's a boy so we're looking more at boys names.

Isla is one of my very favorite names but that's one of my girlfriends LO's name so I think it's off the list for us. I hope you use it though because I think it's so pretty!

 

We're not getting any where with names just yet, but we have a track record of waiting till the last minute (DD3 was a week old before she was named 2whistle.gif )

 

All 3 of our girls have names with 8 letters so our oldest is convienced that we need to keep that tradition (it wasn't on purpose!!) plus we like old-fashined but not popular names so it's really going to take some work. Good thing we have 7+ more months!

Thank you! I'm actually not too crazy over Jackson anymore(sooooooo popular) but if I get Isla for a girl, DH got to keep Jackson for a boy lol. 

I'm thinking my little bean is a boy too.. just a feeling. Are you finding out the gender or waiting until birth?

Oh, most certainly using Isla if baby bean is a girl lol! I've wanted a baby Isla since my DD was born. 

I think that's a really cool tradition to keep up! Our only naming tradition is our boys will have 2 middle names(second middle name being a family name, and more so just for legal purposes, in our case, a baby boys 2nd MN will be Pete or Peter after a recently deceased grandpa). 

And I literally LOL'd about DD being over a week old before she was born hehe.

That's one of the great things about homebirth - you don't have to fill out the birth certificate for a few days lol

post #7 of 58

I have a friend locally that didn't name her baby for a few weeks. It took forever for the sweet boy to get a name lol.

Anyway...I have a couple names I like but naming last time was HARD so I'm sure this time will be too. I'm also unsure as to whether or not we'll find out. If I get my way we wont find out. My husband likes to find out sometimes though. We'll see. He won last time...it's my turn! LOL

Love the names!! Hubby doesn't know about this little one yet, but we've been TTC so we've talked about names. If it's a single boy, then he'll be Gavin Michael, so he'll have my hubby's initials. If there's 2 boys (we've always thought we'd have twin boys) then we're doing Alton, after hubby's grandfather who recently passed and was a military man, and Audie, after Audie Murphey who won 2 medals of honor. And then if its a girl will be Eva-Lynn from Peral Harbor. Anyone else getting these military references. Lol. Hubby is Army and most of our family has served at some point. Lol.

Our children are all named after Saints, particularly Saints to whom we are devoted.

So do we! We have a Margaret (Blessed Margaret of Costello), Samuel Augustine, and Mariana (after St. Mariana and Mother Mariana (the Our Lady of Good Success nun)). This time we kind of like Elizabeth for a girl and Athanasius for a boy (either as a first or second name), but that is bound to change a million times!

post #11 of 58

I'm looking at Francis for a boy and Monica for a girl.  Other options include Bernadette (a favorite of my girls), Christine (or Christina), Paul, and Peter.  I already have a John, Miriam, Ann, Jude, and Therese. :)

I'm going to be looking for a name that means tree or orchard.  Maybe as a middle name, depending on what we come up with.   treehugger.gif  This little one was conceived in our pecan orchard. lol.gif

post #13 of 58

I didn't name our second daughter until she was almost 48 hours old and I had a hospital birth! LOL Drove the staff nuts too! HAHA

 

We like Audriana Felise for a girl and for a boy we are working on it. Shawn is much pickier than I am with boys names, so far we have:

 

Jean-Paul

Jean-Luke

Luke

Shawn Paul

Sylvio (this means woods, was my grandpa's name)

Alexander (my dads name, Xander for short)

Corbin

Conrad

 

We are still expanding the list so I expect to meet him or her and then go from there. :)

We have 2 girls, both "A" names, both 8 letters, both with "lise" in them somewhere. Also NOT done on purpose and we are trying to carry on the tradition if we have a girl :)

My first two were both E names Emma and Elzie...everyone thought we were doing it on purpose...we weren't. LOL...we have Emma, Elzie, Gretchen, Olive, and Rogan. They all DO have two syllables which wasn't done on purpose until Rogan. I turned down a couple one syllable names because I thought it sounded funny with the rest of the names said with it. But there is a boy name I like that is a one syllable name...so not sure if we are going to stick with the two syllable thing we have going or if we are going to change it for our little number six.

So funny! My son Indi sometimes says his name is Orion, and I loooove the name Calliope! I used to dream about twins named Calliope and Cassiopeia

 

I like

 

Vera

Azul

Ambar

Arwen

 

we`ll see...I dont have much ideas for boys names, but I like the idea of gender neutral ones

I'm loving all the names :) And for those posting meanings/patterns with names, tooooo cute!

 

DH says he hates Isla now irked.gif(idc that he does, Isla has been set in stone since DD was 6 months old.. lol), BUT I equally like Calliope, so I've been thinking Calliope Mila(Mee-la). Both DD and I have 'M' middle names, so I think that would be a cute little pattern to do, but isn't super duper matchy or anything. Callie for short. 

But I still want Isla, darn it lol!

Love Isla! it was our 'other' choice for our dd. We named her Niamh but Isla is still a hot one for us. it was spelling that we disagreed on :)

Niamh!  Love that name! 

 

We have a "no sharing first initials" rule, and that includes my first initial, hubby's first initial, and our granddaughter's first initial.  So we can't use A, B, C, E, I, L, M, P, or W. 

 

I love the name Duncan, but one of my teens says it makes her think "Doughnuts" and the other says it reminds her of someone like Crabbe or Goyle from the HP books. :(  So that one is out.

 

For a girl, I think I *have* the name picked...shhhh....Fyfe.  luxlove.gif

 

And all of our kids get two middle names, one of which is a virtue.  Plus they have hyphenated last names, poor things. lol.gif

 

love, p

DH has already ruled out my two most favorite girl names of all time -- Annalise and Meridith. But we will see about that. I tend to get my way.  2whistle.gif 

However, I really feel like this is going to be a boy, so I've come up with a few names. I've decided I'm going to try to just list them and try to make DH pick one. Haha, right! I've thought about Blaine Alexander, Nathaniel Delane (and calling him Nate), and Austin Gray. 

Before I got pregnant, I thought that my favorite part (before baby getting here, of course) was going to be picking names. I'm already dreading all of it. I don't want an overused name... or anything that I will get tired of. I may as well just pull my hair out now! I would love to pick more traditional, old fashioned names rather than the new trendy types of names, but there are just SOOOOO many!!

I also giggled at the thought of not naming my baby for a few days. I will probably end up doing the same... but am afraid that without a name at first, I'll start referring to the baby as "the baby" and completely forget that it has a name later on. I did that with a cat once.. "Kitty" just stuck. She had no name. eyesroll.gif
