I have had to switch off about names until we find out babies gender next week. Ds1 still thinks it will come down to a vote. And his choice for a girl is now Violet. Dh will not budge on Katherine for a girl. But has said if the baby is a boy I can name him.

We found out tonight baby is a girl. Dh is now completely set on Hazel. I'm not sure I'm set on it though. Anyone know any girl names that are similar style to Hazel?
post #86 of 204
Well, I love the name Hazel and will use it if we have a girl. However, what about Haven?
post #87 of 204

Oh, I love the name Hazel.  And Willow as well.  And Rowan.  Jeez, can you tell I grew up in the Pacific Northwest?  It's all trees with me!  :P


We have our first names picked, and have for some time - Cyrus for a boy, Norah for a girl.  But the middle names are driving us both a little batty.  We debated so many that I think at this point we just agreed to wait until our ultrasound in 2 weeks time so that we'll hopefully know the sex and will only have to agree on ONE.  Lol.


Some possible boy middle names - Tavi, Avi, Meir (my husband's Hebrew name)

And girl middle names - Parvin (after my grandmother), Cynthia (after my mother), Ester


Plus a million more that we just threw around.  Sigh.  Tooooo many choices.  :)

I really like Hazel too, I think it's a very sweet name. Hmmm names in the same style

I loved the name Nora until I had to work with this horrible woman...it's a shame she gave a beautiful name such a terrible connotation in my mind. :/ I still think its beautiful, I'd just never be able to use it myself. Same with the name Julia.

Is she Persian?

I knew a gorgeous persian woman, mother of a childhood pal, named Parvin.

Already chosen a girl name, but as I was catching u on Games of Thrones, I wondered: Why Game of Thrones inspired so many parents to name their girls Arya but not Daenerys? I love scrappy Arya, but I admire Daenerys so much more, and Danny is a pretty accessible nickname.

Yes!  Good eye.  :)  My father is Persian, and I'm 1/2.  I'm trying to be sure that our child has one Persian name and one Hebrew name, since my husband is 1/2 Jewish.  It's the parts of our heritage that we like the most.  :)  Cyrus is actually Persian as well, although it's the Anglicized version - Khorosh or Kurush would be the Persian version.  It's from Cyrus the Great, the first king of Persia.

We just found out baby is a girl . . . and have had a first time picked out since September!  And DH agreed, without drama on the middle . . . so we're having a Heidi Noelle!

Awww!  Heidi is a great name!  How sweet.  :)

We also just found out it's a girl and are thinking we like Avani Rae...Avani is Sanskrit for "Earth"
