Wdyt of Teagan for a girl? I think technically it's too masculine paired with sister Isla but I think it's a really cool name and I don't have a long list of names I actually like.

Isla is sooooo pretty!  Teagan is also a great name.  I hadn't imagined it for a girl until now, but I actually like it paired with sister Isla.

 

DH is backing out of Azure...I am so bummed, as I had my heart set on it, but he says it is hard to say.  I told him to put it on the back burner and we would come back to it.  I think it rolls off the tongue, he says it ties his :eyesroll

Tegan and Sara are pretty well known (lesbian) twin singers, so it's definitely a girl's name!

I love Beatrice (or Beatriz) but it got shot down early. One of my good friends goes by Bia.

This thread is so fun!

Glad you guys think so! I pitched it to dh and he hasn't responded yet, just looked like he was being very thoughtful about it, lol. Usually he says NO right away, or he'll say, yeah I like that (which nearly never happens, and often if it does happen it's not a name I actually like very well anyway. So the fact that he's still considering it seems good.

Kelli--I just remembered I know another little Tegan--also a twin, oddly. It's really cute for a baby, and then nicely uncommon for an adult. smile.gif

Love the names ladies!! 

 

Names are sooo hard for us. DH and I have a hard time agreeing. We have three girls, so the girl names are getting really hard.

 

My short list right now:

 

Adele

Violet

Sloane

Harlow

Beatrice (after DH's grandma Betty, but would call her Bea)

 

 

Mason

Brody

Brady

Asher

 

Boy middle will be William after DH's late grandpa, and my step dad.

LOVE adelaide!  beautiful.

My nephew's name is Ripley (he was born this year).  Wonder if it is going to be a popular one that we somehow all accidentally came up with at the same time!  So strange how that works.  Would love to hear thoughts on this.  My baby has had a name since last year when it popped into my head and woke me up.  Had two miscarriages this year, and have wondered how I would feel about "the name" and if I would use it when we actually had a successful pregnancy.  Now this pregnancy is seemingly going great at 9 weeks (thanks to progesterone, crazy), and we saw heartbeat yesterday for the first time, so I feel like I can start to think about some of these things and get excited again.  It all makes perfect sense with the name that came to me, much more meaningful after the two losses.  But we have a strict, top secret name rule so I'll have to tell you in July!  I love hearing all your name ideas though :)  so fun

Tegan and Sara grew up where I'm from, and DH went to high school with them - we'll technically his older sister did, he was a couple years younger than them. Back then they were Sara and Tegan.

Huh, interesting.  We've definitely never heard of another Ripley before, but I think the last names as first names trend is sort of moving a lot of names into more popularity.  I'm definitely not worried about *real* popularity, since it's still way uncommon.  We've met a fair amount of Piper's since our daughter was born, but it's still no Olivia or Sophia (both names that I love, but I just can't handle the number of other kids who would share the name).

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 love the name Rohan Declan for a boy but am totally stumped on a girls name!

post #56 of 137

Has anyone ever heard of anyone using just a letter for a middle name?  DH wants to use my maiden initial for a middle name if it is a boy.    I don't like it, but he seems fairly stuck on it based on a conversation he and my father had.  I am not sure I can feel good about it.  I really want  middle name, not just a letter, but my maiden name doesn't really flow with our last name.  What to do?

post #57 of 137

could you do a related name, or a shortened version, or one with the same meaning for the middle name? My maiden name is equivalent of Abrahamson, and the middle name we are using is similar to Abram. 

My father's last name means evening, and is a long hard to pronounce polish name. We are also looking at names that mean evening to honor him that way.

Really?  I wonder what it would be like when someone asks "what is your middle name?" and they reply "T".  Keep trying it out in my mind...

I really like the idea of this, so I have been trying to google the meaning of my maiden name and apparently there is no meaning.  I tried so many ways. Just doesn't mean  a thing...bummer.

My middle name (and DS1's) is "J". I usually get asked if it's J-a-y, but if I'm spelling it out for someone I'll add "just the letter "J". I like it, but I like going by "AJ" (although most people call me by my first name). DH liked it for DS b/c he wanted a short name for him, lol, and I like it b/c it's part of my name, too.
