Now that we know we are definitely having a wee girl, the name dh had wanted doesn't really resonate with me so well. I'd love it as a middle name though.
I think I have really fallen for calling her Amelia Katherine.
post #102 of 204
And of course dh vetoed Amelia, so now we have another front runner - Tabitha. It's top of our list with Katherine back in second.
I really like Tabitha, probably even more because dh loves it too. Have started trying out calling her Tabby hehe when dh isn't home.

If we have a boy he name will be:

 

First name Morgan- Lives by the sea

Middle Name: Mactier 

 

and we aren't fully set on a girl name but her first name will be 

 

Nichneven

— a Samhain witch-goddess also called "divine" and "brilliant". Also known in the Middle Ages as: Dame Habonde, Abundia, Satia, Bensozie, Zobiana, Herodiana. Folk takes say she rides through the night with her followers on Samhain Eve.

 

We will call her Nevi for short ;D and we still need to come up with a middle name which will be celtic or Druidic because of our ancestry.

Ohhh I love Tabitha! Thats beautiful. And peacemamalove what a unique name! How is it pronounced?

post #105 of 204

Great names!

I decided that I would love Liana or Mirabel because they miraculously work in both languages and sound the same in both languages and I like them.

DF vetoed both of them on the spot.  I want to cry.  I would have been happy with one of those.  
The only ones we have both liked enough to put on a short list is Elsa.  I worry that Elsa is just too plain for me to love.  I want to love the name.

It is pronounced NICK NEh Ven ;) I have always been a huge fan of unique names my youngest name is Azeda Peace Juniper....

I absolutely love love love the name Nichneven. I wish I had the courage to go with such an original first name.

I'm enjoying you all's names! We're having a girl and are naming her Daphne. Clark was our backup boy name.

 

First timers, have you seen the baby name voyager? It's fun. Charts popularity over time.

Thank you! My other daughter is Dorothy, so I think they kind of go together. I like all of yours, but Katherine is my favorite. So classic!

:-) dh adores Katherine, I always want to spell it with a "C" though but dh would want it with a k so we could potentially call her Katie as well.

Now that we know its for sure a girl, I think we've decided on Lillian Louise.
post #113 of 204
Peacemama, I love the name Morgan for a boy! It is on our short list. We're really leaning toward Adrian for our little guy. At first we thought it was too matchy with DS's name, Julian, but it's growing on us smile.gif
post #114 of 204

Daphne, Lillian, Adrian... I love these names!

 

This is my list at the moment, all but two have been vetoed, and the two he hasn't, he just hasn't heard yet and I'm sure he will.  But for you guys thinking of girl names, here you go, my short list:

 

Mirabel  (Belle/Bella for short)

Chloe or Khloe   
Aurora
Liana
Noelle
Quinn  
Roxanna
Arabella  (Belle/Bella for short)  
Luna
Arielle
Vivianna  -- Vivi for short
Nadia
Skyler   
Arianna

I think we're pretty decided on Leela Satya or Leela Sophia. Leela is sanskrit meaning the divine play of the gods, the joyfulness/play of the universe... something like that. sounds fitting- we could use some joy and playfulness! Satya is absolute truth - although it's not really technically pronounced in the "pretty" way... it's more like SUT-yuh.. than sahhhttchyuh. Sophia is the goddess of wisdom and it's greek. I like both. maybe she will be Leela Satya Sophia S***. My husband has two middle names, and both his sisters use their first and middle name together as their first name... so maybe Leela-Sophia Satya or something like that. idk. So glad it's not a boy. Jedi Shadowhawk was our boy name... hahaha!

Serafina, my favorites from your list are Arielle and Arabella- Arabella is my DD2's mn smile.gif all are very pretty, very feminine names.
Yogini, I like the 2 mn thing, too. My DDs each have only 1, but DS and the new guy will have 2 each. Only because I'm giving them my maiden name as a second mn- something I wish I'd done for DDs.

I wish I had done that with DS.  I feel like I totally complicated things by giving him two last names instead of just making my last name his second middle name. Every time I have to do anything official for him it feels excessive and annoying.  My parents told me it was going to be a pain in the a#$ but I was so insistent.  I'd like to do it for this baby and maybe just change DS's name officially before he's in school and it gets even more complicated.  I'll have to look into what it takes to legally switch it.

We hyphenated, but my six year old keeps telling me she wishes she had just my last name. I've been thinking about doing two middle names this time. My firstborn didn't have a middle name. My second had one. It seems like the third should have two. lol.gif

Seraphina- Mirabel was on my list too, I think it's adorable.So far my whole list has been vetoed except for two.

 

I have a name-related question: How would you pronounce the name Adelae? We both like this as a version of the name Adelaide without the D sound, but I’m not sure how it should be spelled to avoid mispronunciation. Or does it just sound too made-up?

 

The other name we both agree on is Iris.It's botanical so it goes with DD's name (Juniper), but I'm just not super duper excited about it right now.

I would have pronounced it like Adelaide without the D before you referenced Adelaide...
