That's cool that you already have names figured out!

Isla Charlotte has a nice ring to it...although I have found myself finding every excuse under the sun not to use it, and I realized that deep down, I just don't want to.  I'd felt a little guilty about it, so I talked to my Dad about it, and unless something really strange happens between now and then, we probably will forgo the name, and there won't be any hard feelings (except my grandmother, maybe).  I don't want to use it just because I feel bad, or feel like I should.  Every time I have tried to do something nice for her it has backfired.  Plus she has dementia and so probably won't even know if I did...and her health is going downhill so fast we're not sure if she will be around still when LO gets here. guilty.gif.  (She's a fighter though, so we will see...although I can't see her "holding on" just to see the baby, she doesn't care that much that I am pregnant, just that we name the baby after her).   I know that sounds really horrible. bag.gif

I thought i would chime in here again... since we had a (surprise) U.S. yesterday and the midwife guessed it was a boy we are now talking boy names again! the U.S. was pretty early (between 15-16 weeks) so when I say he guessed i literally mean he thought he *might* be able to see a penis but it could be a fold of umbilical cord. so... i'm gonna go with BOY for now. 

we decided last night we both like the name Jamison for a boy and it fits with our 'park' theme we've got going on (there is a Jamison Square in downtown Portland). Still not sure about the middle name though. Both our dads' names are David, so we could easily do Jamison David but that sounds so bland and boring to me! We also talked about the nickname Jaime for a boy which I really like. 

 

So possibly Jamison (Jaime) David

DH and I love the names August or Vincent for a boy, but we're concerned about him being called "Auggie" or "Vinney" as nicknames (we don't care for those knicknames).....  otherwise we like Ethan Vaughn (but Ethan seems to be a common name) and we kind of wanted something unique.  Names are sooo hard!  Someone earlier mentioned the name Milo and that is a darling name!

That was me... I adore the name Milo but DH says it says like a 'kid name' and not an adult name. i disagree but... what can i say?? And I feel it's popularity is creeping up fast because in the past few weeks since I decided I liked that name I have heard it a few times already around town (plus a friend of a friend posted a pic of their new baby boy Milo the other day). 

 

August is also one of my fave's for a girl or a boy but once again DH veto'd it (he's VERY hard to please with names!)

My DH and I don't agree on names really. I joke and tell him "well really it is my choice in the end since legally I have to complete the documentation. So "happy birthday" it is! Won't it be fun have a happy?" he usually groans and rolls his eyes. I don't blame him.

I am having the hardest time finding a boy name that I like. We need a Muslim name and  one of the problems I have is "can mommy say that"  My husband speaks arabic so its easy for him but not me. So my top choices so far are:

Sofian

Omar

Abbas

post #27 of 81
I really like Omar!

Shanna-cat, my grandpa's name was Milo. It is definitely no just a kid's name.

We're completely stumped about names still.  DH loves Liam (I'm not thrilled with it) and I really love Wyatt, but he's not thrilled about that name, so we're sort of in a holding pattern......  What to do when we can't compromise?  lol

 

BTW-  I also LOVE the name Milo!

I made a list of 55 names and DH said every single one of them SUCKED and we didn't even speak for 4 full days LMAO.  That was with our 4 year old and our style had changed so much between him and the older ones that we picked from a map.  He's named from a light house off the coast of the Outer Banks of NC

Lol tenk, that story is hilarious. It's so funny how naming a baby can be so complicated and difficult! I THINK we have decided on Amelia for our little one, but yesterday we got into a little tiff about the pronunciation. My Spanish-speaking DH wants it to be pronounced "Ah-MAIL-ee-ah," which I really like. I think most things sound better when pronounced with the spanish accent. DD1's full name is Graciela, and I Hate the way most Americans pronounce it! That's a big part of the reason we went with Ela (Ella) as a nickname. Anyhow, I told him that most people are going to call the next baby Ah-MEE-lee-ah and he got all huffy and refused to talk about it until a few hours later that night.

You guys have some really great names! We are having a super hard time coming up with anything. With our first, we found out the sex as soon as we possibly could, so - knowing it was a girl - it made picking out a name easier. Maya Lily stuck from the get-go and was the only name we both agreed on and loved the entire pregnancy.

 

With this pregnancy, we're not finding out the sex until the baby is born, AND we cannot seem to agree on most names. Here is what we have so far:

 

GIRL

 

Sophia Audrey (for DH's grandmother and mine)

Piper (we both like it, but we have a friend named Piper and I think it weirds DH out a little bit)

Willow (DH does not like)

Poppy (DH does not like)

Autumn (DH says "mehhh")

 

BOY

 

Atticus Grey (DH does NOT like this name)

Jasper (I kind of like it, but I also think it kind of sounds like an old man's name sort of)

Silas/Cyrus (DH likes these names.... I do not)

Jude (we both like this name, but are not hard-set on it)

Cedar (DH thinks this is weird)

 

I also love Sage, but DH thinks it's too "new-agey." ARGH!!! 

 

Any other suggestions? Lol!

I love Jasper and Piper

Also one of my students (a very tall blonde) is named Cedar and dhe has a little sister named Sage.

I love name discussions. Of your girl names, Sophia is my favorite, but it is also the one that is markedly different than the style of your other names. It's also a top 5 name right now, if that matters to you. I love it, though, you can't go wrong with a classic like that, and it is nice with Maya. That said, you clearly lean towards nature names, so you will have to decide if a family name or your nature names is more important. I have a soft spot for Willow, given my fondness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the next generation will not make that connection. Other names for your consideration:

Pearl, Coral, Ivy, Stella, Jade, Aurora, Dawn

Your boy naming style is a bit different. Solid names, often with a classic reference. Atticus is great, but it is on the rise, and there is no escaping the To Kill a Mockingbird connection. I would go with Jude from your choices. I think these names also fit your style:

Forrest, August, Milo, Asher, Merritt

JNajla, if you like Liam and Wyatt, what about Lyle? Riley? Levi? Eli?
post #36 of 81
DH really loves the name Stella and was campaigning for it, and it really is a beautiful name. but although our daughter's given name is Graciela we call her Ela. I can't have an Ela and a Stella. Unless we have a boy next and name him Fella.

I'm planning on a nature name. DS 1 is named after a Greek god and that's enough of that. I'm planning on Walden Oak or Walden October. Going for wow initials. Everest is one I considered for a long time though. I know a little cedar and 2 pipers these are neat names.

LOVE those names.... trying hard to not want to steal them ;-)

 

 

 

We're thinking maybe Jace Ezra?

Thanks for the suggestions!  We'll probably end up with with a completely different name since each of us can't agree on Liam or Wyatt....  :/

post #40 of 81

would you name a BOY Berkeley?? DH and I have been tossing this around for a while... while we love the name we are concerned it's too 'girlish'.... thoughts?
