Piper was on our short list, too! Great name. smile.gif

Anyone still debating names?  We can not come up with a boys name for the life of us!  The closest we have come is Jason Matthew.   Then i discovered Brady which I really liked, and DH seemed on board, but now not.  He likes Brodie better (not a fan). 

DS has really taken to calling the baby by nickname "Chino". I fear this is the best we will come up with and our youngest will have been named by his 2.5 yo brother, Ha!

I like Brady and Brodie. smile.gif When I was younger, Brodie was on my short list. Has a bit of a surfer vibe to it. Brady to me is a bit more reserved. My friend's maiden name was Brady, so she and her sister were fighting over which of them could use it for a baby boy, but they've both had all girls!

As for me, I've got a boy name I'm totally sold on, but DH is reluctant, just as he was with the boy name I picked for #1. I'm not going to push it and hope that if the baby is a boy, DH will again lean over to me after the birth and say, "After that, you can name him whatever you want." smile.gif

As for a girl name, that has been problematic. We've had a name picked out for years, but if this child is anything like its brother and sister, it'll be a live wire and the sweet name we like just won't fit. We also have a name that suits the vibe of our family much better, but it starts with the same letter as DD's name, and I'm not sure if that's cool or not. Also, DS doesn't have a middle name, but DD does (DH's family doesn't do middle names, but I actually use mine as my first name, so we always said our boys wouldn't have one but our girls would). The new girl name we like is enough of a name on its own and doesn't go well with any middle name we've thought of, so we're thinking of no middle name, but that breaks our own rule. FWIW, DS's only name is 6 letters, DD's first and middle combined are 6 letters, and the new girl name is also 6 letters. Agh! So much to consider!

I so have no name yet. I have a short list, I suppose.

Eleanor (meh, dh loves it)
Naomi
Margaret (would maybe be called Margot)

Or if it's a boy, I can't get out from under Julian (dh's gmpa) Kai, most likely for a middle name. I think I would end up calling him Jack, and that dh would call him Julian.

I used to be really against nicknames, or name shortening. But my other kids names are so complicated for them and other littles to say, that I have come to embrace them smile.gif

Naomi and Eleanor were my girl names for these little guys. I wasn't 100% into Eleanor but I do like it. If I ever have another daughter I may stick with Naomi.

Jillgayle-  I like Brady better than Brodie too.  I knew a Braden in college and some folks called him Brady.

 

Banana-  I really like Eleanor.  It was on our list last time.  Now we have a good friend with a daughter Eleanor, so it's off the list.  Margaret is also good, so many nicknames (and it's in our family).  I think Margot trumps them all though, I really like that one!

 

We are still without names here too.  We are all pretty sure this one is a boy, but the only names we can think of are girl names.  DS wants to name the baby Edie or Dottie.  DH would like Marguerite as a part of the name.  I like Dottie and Marguerite...  I also like Mathilda, Esther, Eloise, and a couple of other old fashioned names.

 

For DS we picked out two family names and were pretty set on that.  But when he came, it just wasn't right.  So we tried out our short list on him and nothing off that seemed to fit either.  Eventually, after nearly a week, we found a name that suited him (Barnabas) and added family names as his middles. 

 

I have two friends who recently passed that I would love to honor by using part of their names if they are fitting (Bennett and Clive were what I was thinking).  But I am not sure if I want that reminder this soon after they have gone... 

 

Other than that it is back to the drawing board on boys names.  DH has thrown 'RoboCop' out there, so I know we're in trouble!

We really haven't been able to come up with much, not for a lack of trying.  DH has rejected almost all of my suggestions.  So far his favorites are Penelope Laine (which I had only mentioned when it was brought up earlier in this thread, but not really suggesting it) and Moxie Crimefighter (which was definitely NOT my suggestion). nut.gif

 LOL on Moxie Crimefighter.  DP likes Duke Lacrosse and Powers.

Today I like the name Hadley. Hadley Mabel maybe. I dunno. I love Mabel for a first name but everyone in my family hates it and says they can't look at a baby and call her Mabel. :(

I had a dream that baby was here and my boys were announcing her name as the one I've mentioned somewhere on here before. It's definitely growing on me! Of course, I don't know if its actually a girl!

One of my good friends has a Hadley Wren.  I like Mabel more though. :)

 

My son is adamant that he hates my favorite name too, it's kind of annoying...of course, at age 5 he thinks it is his *right* as big brother to name the baby.  Sigh... Sorry, kiddo, we're not naming the baby after your BFF's little sister.  It's just weird.

Alexandra has made a sudden move to the top of our list and although I really love it, I am worried that it's just so much name! My DH says we will call her Alex from the start, but I'm not sold just yet. I had wanted a flower middle name, but the only one syllable one I like is Rose, and that's my middle name. Anything more than one with Alexandra seems overwhelming. Hmmm, maybe I'll get to use my beloved name of Ruth after all! smile.gif

 

My niece actually goes by Lexie, which is cute too.

Our little girl will be Madeline Grace :)

We have decided on Vivienne Frances, unless she is born and it clearly not a Vivienne. :)

That's a nice one, Askew!
post #216 of 266

Those are beautiful names!

I hope I am not the only one left with no name yet....

post #217 of 266
Nope, agile, this gender-unknown baby is also nameless. I have some ideas but nothing firmly set, and that is likely going to be the case until sometime after the birth!
post #218 of 266
We've decided on a girl name (I think, unless it doesn't feel right at the time), but are still stuck for a boy name. The boy name I latched onto early in the pregnancy and love, DH doesn't like. The name he wants was my first choice last time around if we'd had a boy, but I've gone off it in the three years since. Agh!
post #219 of 266

Your not alone Agile!. no name here either (at least if its a boy).  picked and stuck with a girls name right from the start.

I've finally decided on a name for my boy after thinking I had chosen several times only to find days later after trying to can him those names that I couldn't or didn't really like them much. At first I was very set on a one syllable boy name to go with Blake (my 4 yo) and at first really even wanted a b name. If it were a girl I was decided easily. Sicilia Eve

Once we determined baby is a boy we jumped on Maximus... Days later I couldn't picture anything but a dark haired and hairy old man... If you ever saw myself or husband and how pale we are you know why this doesn't work. I liked Max but it just didn't fit... Then came Reese, it worked for a day or so then I just lost the like for it.

His name is Korbin Thomas. I've been calling him Korbin for weeks and I love it! I haven't found anything about it I don't like and since finally feeling good about the name I feel like I've bonded closer to him. I'm silly that way I guess!

I should mention that my husband named the other two kiddos and this one was all me! It's a lot of pressure! Lol!
