Is it too soon for a name thread? - Page 6

post #101 of 162

So originally we had Eden Willow picked out if we have a girl, but lately I have not been feeling as strongly about this name.... I don't know why I am having such a hard time having a girl name picked out. I'm kind of leaning towards Isolde now. Maybe Isolde Eden Spencer... Does that even flow? Is it too much of a mouthful? Ugh! I think we are pretty set on a boy name - Finnian Atlas. We still have 16 weeks, give or take, so good thing we still have time. Just thought I'd put it out here and maybe get some input! Who knows I could completely change my mind and go back to the original. I hate that I'm even more indecisive while pregnant. I think my DH is getting annoyed with me. lol

Eden and Willow we're both on my short list I love them. I'm not sure I know the name the other name you picked? Don't believe I've ever heard it Before. I Think WE Are Going With Annika Jean. Love Your Boy Name Too. Something Helpful For Me Is To Use The Name For A Few Days. Like Say Eden Is Very Active Or Eden Must Want A Pickle.

Pixie-  Isolde is pronounced "iz-old" or "iz-old-a" we would use the first (Iz-old) as in "Tristan and Isolde."  That is a good idea! I should try that! I just have had a hard time referring to any name to the baby since we do't know what we are having. So its always "the baby" this "the baby" that. You know. I don't want to always say "he or she" every time or "it." lol

We're going to call our little guy Uli.  We have a 15-letter very german last name and our other son is called Ike so we thought Ike and Uli would be a cute combo. We like to have very short first names because the poor kid's going to have to catch up writing our last name.  

 

Uli is short for a lot of germanic/nordic names.  In this case, it will be short for Ulrik. 

 

If I'd have been thinking, I'd have gotten a shirt or at least a picture from this place when I was in Seattle a couple of weeks ago.

Tspencer - i prefer Eden over Isolde. And I think Eden Willow is very nice together. For some reason though, i like Tristan and Isolde better than Tristan and Eden. Maybe Tristan nd Eden are too similar sounding? Not sure. So i guess i am not helpful. Lol.

Pixie- i like Annika Jean. Nice pick.

Pamela - Uli is great for a little boy!

Aw we love that movie Tristan & Isolde.
I personally love the uniqueness and flow of Isolde Eden Spencer. Beautiful choice. Eden Willow is initials spelling "EW". Not sure if that bothers you but I always check to make sure of initials bc of monograms etc.

Also, agree w vtamanda, love Annika Jean & Uli (Ulrik).

OrchideZ- Oh my goodness! I didn't even notice her initials would be EW and EWS.... IES would be much better.... :innocent Thanks for pointing that one out!!

We're struggling with names... :irked

post #110 of 162
So are we, sort of! We have a list, but nothing seems quite right. Maybe once the babe is here, it will be clear.
post #111 of 162
We had a little list too. Both my kids go by nicknames rather than full name and the one name that was a frontrunner doesn't have a nickname I like. Nothing seems quite right.
post #112 of 162
I think we finally have our names figured out. Either Katherine or Ada for a girl and Lee or Cole for a boy. Although neither DH nor I are totally behind the boys names. DH really likes Kim for a boy as well. And I like it, but I don't know if I like it for our kid if that makes sense. We'll wait to meet him/her before we decide between our 2 choices, but I lean towards Katherine (Kate - but DH doesn't like Kate!) and Lee.

We're struggling on names again. Both my kids go by a shortened version of their name. They will then have the ability to select as they get older which they prefer. For the name that was higher on our list "Jillian" I don't love Jill (no offense to anyone with that name). :)

 

So at least for girl name we are still working through some ideas:

 

Jillian Hope

Elisabeth Hope (nickname Ellie)

Elise Kathryn (nickname Ellie)

 

Elise Hope

 

I like Willow a lot and do love Isolde, though not using them I am glad to see others love them too. I also was stuck on Eirene quite a bit for the double meaning (because it means peace) but also because it's a word jumble of my kitty who died when I was pregnant with my first LO. His name was Ernie. Alas I don't love the name Irene which is inevitably what she's be called no?

 

Argh.

I don't know if it matters to you but Ellie/Ella is super super popular around me right now. I know two Ella's and three Ellie's under two.

What about something non traditional as a nn for Jillian? Lia or Ann maybe?
post #115 of 162

I have a friend who goes by Jillie, not Jill. 

 

I also know 15 (I'm not kidding) little girls named Ellie/Elly who are age 5 and under.  

 

Most of them are Eleanors, and one is an Ellyanna. 

post #116 of 162

I hope I don't sound like I'm criticizing your choice of Ellie, though. It's a super cute name.  

post #117 of 162
I really like Jillian! Would most likely NN Jilly or possibly ann/ annie. I would shy away from the other names due to the popularity. But that is a personal choice, as both my hubby and i grew up with popular names.
post #118 of 162

Thanks all. Hubby was really liking Jillian but I just wanted to make sure she (if it even is a she) had a nickname we could like and use. I will keep testing it out. We don't know many Ellie's but then again we are just now meeting other kids through the kids :).

My old boss had a Jillian and they called her Jilly Bean. I thought that was pretty cute. I'm sure she would grow out of that nickname pretty fast though. I don't know many Ellies around here! I also knew and Elisabeth that they called Bits. I have a sister named Elizabeth and she was always Beth growing up.

QQ - For those of you who know a lot of Ellie's - do you know a lot of Elise's?
