Selissa, my hubby and I super love the name Ember! For both sexes. But we fell in love w Audris for a gal months before we convinced, so we'll see.

If we have a girl, she'll be Aloya Wren. "Aloya" is a word in my husband's native language that is only used in songs, so it is perfect for us b/c we are both musicians.

 

And if it is a boy, it he will be Ruben Iskandar. "Iskandar" is the Islamic/Southeast Asian/South Asian version of "Alexander" (as in, "the Great"). Plus, it means "deliverer of mankind." Not bad for a newborn.

 

I love hearing about all of your names!

I love both your names, Aloya was a name that we were shopping early on and I tend to love middle eastern names.  I agree that hearing about everyone elses choices is super fun :)

Beckily, we finally settled on a middle name for Arthur last night --- Harlan. I thought of you! It's not Alan but it's actually kind of close. 

 

I know it's an odd name, but there's a tradition of last-names-for-middle-names on my husband's side of the family --- Harlan is his godfather. 

 

For both of our baby names we picked a first name from one side of the family and a middle name from the other. I'm pretty psyched!

Similar sound! And I don't like the name Alan, just the sound, so perfect! :D

We thought Leo was going to be a girl, and had agreed on Aviaya, which we still like, although we have thrown Maya into the running too. We like the melody of the vowels. No boys' names being considered as yet.

I like the name Clara Joy for a girl (Joy is after my Nana) but my DH doesn't like any names I suggest for a boy and vice versa. He doesn't really want to discuss anything until we find out what we're having.

Let's kick this thread into gear!

 

We found out we are likely having a girl! So excited to pick girls names and not have to torture ourselves again with boys names (they are so hard!). Our two boys have biblical names. I'm looking for something classic, but that can be pronounced in English or Spanish. Right now really like Isabella, but it seems to be waaaay too popular right now!!! Any other ideas?

 

gypsy, I also like Willow. I have a friend who used the name Winter, which I thought was weird at first, but it totally grew on me. I really like the nature theme and the W sound. One word of caution though, from someone who has a W in her name (me) and liked to travel internationally, it is very hard to pronounce in other languages!! Hearing my name constantly butchered in Spanish/French was hard! But this may not be an issue/concern for you!!

Speaking of Whedon, we'll have a Joss Claxton if it's a boy. If it's a girl, I have implored DH to have the name end in an -a since my girls are Isabella and Amelia and my sisters and I end in -a too. I told him I like Clara or Olivia, but it's his turn since I named Jacob and Isabella .. And he's a 9th grade English teacher : x

Rowan was gonna be an Illyria if he'd been a girl. I love everyone's name choices.

Oh, Clara Joy is my top choice for a girl, too!  If we have a girl her middle name will most certainly be Joy.  We haven't made further decisions.  I think it is beautiful and classic!

Right now, I love the name Esme for a girl.  Esme means "to love" and it just seems perfect.  Dh really likes Luna, as we conceived during the supermoon in June, lol.

 

For girls, I also love Dalilah, and am thinking the middle name for whatever name will be Rose, which is a family name.  We use family names for both of our boys middle names, as well.

 

For boys, I like Tobias, Quinn, and Finn.  Dh does not like any of those, haha.  So we have a long way to go :-)

I was set on Saul for a boy, but I'm having a girl and I'm less sure of a name. Maybe Elsa, Maya, Hannah, Ada, or Lillian.

 

I like Vera too, but I would make it Veronica after my grandma and call her Vera. DH doesn't like that one though. 

post #54 of 85

mountainsun, I really like Esme. It is beautiful, has a nice ring to it, and not popular.

 

SugarAndSun, I also like Elsa, Maya, and Lilian. We need something that goes well in either English or Spanish and those all work well. DH says no way to Elsa, as he had an old aunt named Elsita. Liliana sounds really nice (for us for the Spanish version). I do worry about the popularity of Lily though.

Sugar & Sun, my grandma's name was Veronica too. I didn't get to officially put it as my DD MN on her birth certificate due to naming rules in hubs home country, but my grandma & I know she is Sophia Veronica after her.

What are the naming rules? I always find those very interesting!

We thought we were settled on a boy's name and a short list for girls, but now DH has chosen a new girl's name we really like. 

 

Georgiana

 

And I am finding myself really attached to it, to the point that I feel almost like I should find out the gender to alleviate any possible mourning over this name if it is a boy. I have been adamant that we're not finding out. I guess this feeling really cements that Georgiana is *the name* for a girl for us. 

 

Our boy's name is Nikola. The short version will be Niko. Alternates, should he just not seem like a Niko, are Ambrose and Blaise. 

 

The short list we had before for girls was Nina, Xenia, Valerie, and Veronika (which was the favourite before but we were going to call her Nika for short) SugarAndSun I really love Veronica/ Vera, too!

Ooohhh, Georgiana was Darcy's sister's name from Pride and Prejudice. Good pick!
