Names yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 137

Hopefully we will not have another boy,  we are particular about names and each of our five boys already have three names!

not sure at all what we would call him. We have a  Lucien, Florian, Vivien, Evelyn and Aurelian. 

 

Actually we just have no names yet period!

So far our short list is Phoebe Hope for a girl and Asher David for a boy. We have a crazy Hungarian last name (thanks to dh, lol) so we'd like the first name to be unique but simple.
Our daughter is Willow Lynn (Lynn being both of her grandmother's middle names) and I love using family names as middle names.

We have had Caroline Elizabeth picked for a girl since our first pregnancy but I'm not 100% on Caroline yet... Elizabeth is a family name that I'm pretty set on... I'm also considering Sophia as it was my grandma's name and she passed away last year. I also like Grace.

For a boy Asher and Levi are my top picks. I have learned though that I can pick names all I want and in the end it might not fit the baby and we will have to start from scratch once he/she is born.

I also love Kohen, but I don't think my husband does...

Our current front runners are Archer for a boy and Sierra for a girl.

My husband is loving the name Scout for a girl but I don't like it enough as a first name so we may have a Sierra Scout. 

I'm not sure if we'll give a middle name if we have a boy.

This is just how I feel about it, so take it with a grain of salt ;) I grew up with the name Jordan when it was still not widely used for girls (I'm 26) and I hated it. I still don't like it, I wish I had a more feminine name. Even now when I write emails people assume I'm a boy. DH loves the name Elliot for a girl, but I will never give my daughters gender neutral names.

That's so pretty. I like family names as middle names, too.

 

DH and I have very different taste in names, so all these names were hard won! And I'm still worried he'll change his mind, because he does that. But for a girl we like Evangeline and Adelaide (we also like Elodie, but I like it pronounced El-a-dee and he likes it pronounced el-OH-dee (like Melody)) and for a boy we like Arthur and Orrin. For a girl we will do the middle name Virginia, which was my grandmother's name and also the name of the street DH and I met on. For a boy probably Edward, my dad's middle name. If we choose Evangeline Virginia we can call her Ginny!

 

I figure a name will just "click". It definitely did with both of our others. I had planned on naming DD Ruby Belle but by 12 weeks I just knew she was a Clementine. With Malcolm it was the only boy name we agreed on. I didn't even know if I liked it, but I could tell it was his name. I love it now,  of course. So our current kids are Clementine Louise and Malcolm Michael. Louise was my grandma's middle name and Michael is my dad's name. It's also DH's dad's name, but that isn't why we picked it.

Our boys (who have both passed away) were Brayden Christopher and Landon Travis. Christopher is my husband's first name and Travis is my brother's middle name. Our oldest  daughter is Laci Ann (Ann is my sister in law AND youngest niece's middle names). Our youngest daughter is Abigail "Abby" Grace. No family name in hers, we just liked both of the names.

This time, we are thinking Elijah Hunter, Elijah David, or Hunter David. David is a family name on my husband's side. We like Elijah and we will call him "Eli".

As for girls, we've got nothing LOL

Yikes. So ours are in alphabetical order and named after trees-
Alder
Banyan
Cedar
Durian
Elm
Ficus.

I am at a loss for "G" tree names..... My dad used to tease me with Gumbo Limbo, but that's not happening!

Twin A will be Jonas or Annika. Twin B will be Lukas, Beatrix, Charlotte, Katja, or something we haven't thought of yet. If it is boy/girl twins, they will be Jonas and Annika.

what a lovely tradition.  the only ones coming to mind are ginkgo and goldenrain.  and there's greasewood of course, but that's more of a shrub and a really awful name :wink

Our boy name is settled on Théophile Norwill Whitman. Théophile because its what DH likes, Norwill as a combination of my two grandfathers names Norris and Willis and Whitman because we both love Walt Whitman and his poems have been a big part of our relationship since the beginning. For a girl we are quite a bit more torn, but right now its looking like Satori Alaeen Sheilette. Satori both because of its meaning as a sudden moment of enlightenment and because its in the title of a book I really like, Alaeen as a combination of my husbands first name of Alan and my middle one of Colleen and Sheilette because my moms name is Shelia but I absolutely love names that end in -ette. We also really like Sybil or Saoirse- most of the names we are drawn toward for a girl seem to start with S oddly enough. I personally love the names Georgette and think Georgie would make an adorable nickname but apparently its very very out of fashion in France now, to the point of all of DHs family being like NO whenever I mention it :)

I love Lukas for a boy and we were considering Katya last time if we had a girl.  It's still in my top 5.  I love all those names though.

I've always loved Scout too.  I'm still toying with it, but I can't decide if it's too "out there" for our family.  It would match our Piper pretty well though. 

post #36 of 137

Scout's name was Jean Louise!

I think scout is a great nickname, but I can't imagine Dr. Scout Wilson, or Scout Jones, CPA.

I love Scout. I had planned on naming a girl Scarlett, and calling her Scout. Although, when I had my 3rd boy I decided I had better not keep waiting for my girl, and we named him Atticus.  I don't know if I could pull off a Scout and an Atticus in the same clan.   The other kids might wonder why they weren't named Jem, Calpurnica and Radley (which I've always thought would be an awesome name.)

I LOVE names. You have no idea what a nerd I am! :love

 

I suggested Clementine to DH and he actually said maybe. Then I had to think about whether I really thought it a possibility for us. Several days later I was saying it outloud and was shocked that I had not "heard it earlier... Clementine Derstine is a HORRIBLE idea. :(

 

I have not found anything that really calls to me yet. We have considered now or at other times Florence, Frances, Margaret, Lavender, Catherine/Kathryn.

If we have a boy it is most likely going to be Arthur. 

 

I am cettain this is a girl though and have been focusing on girl names. 

Avis

Beatrice 

Blanche

Camille

Cleo

Esme

Elle

Evangeline - DH said no way, I might could change that ;)

Juniper- but we are not using any "j" sound names bc we already have one :/

Luna

Nadia

Pearl Olive

Scarlett 

Sylvie/Sylvia

post #39 of 137

We already have a boy named picked out. Matthias or Matthijs (not sure which spelling we'd use) Orion. Matthijs was my great great grandfather and great uncle's name and Orion is my wife's favorite constellation. 

 

Girl names are sooo hard for us. So far we like

Abigal

Alexandra

Sofie

Cameron

 

We have absolutely no middle names at all for a girl. This is hard stuff.

We have really similar taste in names! My 7yo DD is named Clementine. If this one is a boy he will 99% be Arthur, but I'm pretty sure it's a girl and she'll be Evangeline or Adelaide.
