Kira and Serena were the two names we were considering for DD. We went with Kira, so if this one turns out to be a girl (I do suspect a boy) we may very well go with Serena. I think maybe not though, just because Kira did turn out to be a very, very easy to care for baby and toddler. I doubt another girl would turn out to be nearly as "serene," and I'd probably feel the name didn't fit.

If we have a boy, he'll be John Henry S(last name), probably nicknamed Jack. DH is very seriously set on this (it's a family name), so that's settled.

A girl name will be debated right up to the end. DD is Laura Grace S(last name), and Laura wasn't even on the list, but when I saw her, that was her name! We considered a lot of names, and for a long time the front-runner was Anna. So maybe this one will be an Anna. I *love* the name Willa, but DH nixed it last time.

I'm a fan of simple old-school names, and names that reflect our families' histories. I'm sure we'll be debating this for, oh, the next 9 months or so!

We want a *mighty* name for a boy, but not too weird. My ds's name is Christofer Wolfgang, my youngest dd is Hanah Starr, and oldest dd is Breena Shey. We like slightly traditional, but also slightly unusual names, lol. I want an earthy name for this baby.
Congrats! I'm not pregnant, but I'm O'ing and feeling the baby fever.....

Anyway, we almost named my daughter Ayla Rain. Right up to the minute she was born, I thought that would be her name. She was born with beautiful light red hair though and she was just glowing, so she ended up being Ayla Star instead. Plus, the more I thought about it, Ayla Rain reminded me of Lorraine, for some reason. I'm a weirdo.

I just thought that was funny. I haven't seen too many Ayla babies yet! You already used the name Starr. My husband's name is Kristopher. I think that we're cosmic twins or something.

Wishing you a H&H 9 months.

I have an ever growing list of names I'd like to use, some of which are:
Girls- Willa, Willow, Madalyn, Macie, Kimberlyn, Scotlyn, Kyrin, Kylen, Kylie, Kyla, Kyra, Kira, Abagail, Brenna, Rebeka, Irelyn
Boys- Kendrick, Colin, Coulier, Dannen, Brennen, Davis
My top 3 are:
Girls:
Kenya Elise (I'll most likely use this)
Madalyn Rose
Kyren Noel
Irelyn Rose (My BBF said she would call DD "Wild Irish Rose"
Boys:
Kayden Jude (I'll most likely use this)
Colin Patric
Brennen Jace
Kendrick Augustas
(I say MY current choices because hubby is not allowed to help, his choice for a boy was Gunner and for a girl was Bessa : ) And the reason I chose them is because noone I know is named that/has kids named that. There is a movie out with a the lead caracter named Kenya, but I'm praying it doesn't catch on....

For a boy I'm pretty sure it'll be:

Ian Spencer Hall P. (not sure about Hall, it's a family name)

For a girl I really like:

Ilana

That's as far as I've gotten w/ a girl name. I would really like to have maybe Ellen in there for her 2nd middle name (it's my grandma's middle name and I just LOVE her to pieces, lol).
post #27 of 53
I'm in love with "Maggie" (Margaret) but I'm doubtful I'll get dh to agree. :

For a boy, it's between Benjamin Derek and Derek William.

We've always had a harder time with girl names than with boy names.

I am set on using Viola for the girl though--probably as a middle name because dh thinks it's too old fashioned, but I'm okay with that.

We went through babynames.com the other night, which has, like 30 or 40 thousand names and couldn't find a girl's name we both agreed on! Good thing we have time, huh?
post #28 of 53
We like family names and both DD and DS are named from someone on my side of the family so we are determined to use DH's side.

Right now we have

Jackson Michael (DH is Michael and we LOVE Jackson), this will probably not happen though if you can guess why.:

For a girl we like
Avery Joan
Lily Joan
Cote Joan (sounds like Kody)

Marcia

Hello!
Just found out that we are expecting #3. BIG surprise, apparently I am one of 2% who can get pregnant on the pill . Our daughter is Vivian Leah and our son is Maxwell Alexander.

Little surprise will probably be a girl so we are thinking:
Marley Rose or Ruby Rose

and for boys:

Marley or Xavier no word yet on the middle name. Hubby is Jewish so we will have to find a deceased relative. Rose is for a cousin Rosalind.

Okay, so today I'm thinking that I'm having twin boys again (how's that for pessimism?), and if that happens, we will name them Zeben Alexander and Silas Rane. We don't have any girl ideas at all, and I don't think that's a very good sign. . . (it would be really nice to have a girl, but I'm just not feeling it).

Are you guys planning to name the baby as soon as you find out gender (if you're finding out before birth), or wait until the baby's born and pick what seems to fit the baby best? Last time we named our boys minutes after the u/s, and I think we'll probably do the same thing this time too, although if we ARE having twin boys again, we may wait until the birth to see which one is which.

I plan to have the two names I like best picked out (don't even know if we'll find out the gender) & unless (when babies born) s/he really doesn't look like the name suits him/her, that's the one we'll use.
post #32 of 53
If we have a girl she'll be Ava Elizabeth :
If we have a boy he'll be Logan James:
post #33 of 53
FOr girls..and I'm feeling girly...
Angela (Angie)
Shannon
Diana (for Diana Krall, and my dd Carly was named for Carly Simon)
Kelly
Ryann
Kyle
Desty

Not sure for boys...but I like names that can be 'initial names' TJ, RJ, etc
post #34 of 53
I have problems picking out names...I'm a teacher of young children...even 1 yr olds on Fridays come fro a therapeutic playgroup....so I see lots of names and I can also see the trends. That really causes me to discount many names I would otherwise like YKWIM?

My ds wasn't named until after birth.

I only have on fav...Clover for a girl but dh HATES it...he knew a Clover and she wasn't a nice person.
post #35 of 53
we have been putting names down on a list so far we only have 3 girls names and 3 boys names.

Girls
Makaydee(this is my fav)
Nora
Heidi(this is DW's fav)

Boys
Spencer(this is DW's fav)
Marley
Kendrick(this is my fav)

we did the same thing last time when i was pregnant with my son and we stuck with our favourite. i am so in love with the name Makaydee at the moment i am hoping i have a girl. but we wont know what we are having until they are born so i am sure our list will grow a million miles long before that time.

We have a boy name Nathan Blair. Blair is for my father-in-law. He died last year. I like the idea of calling him "baby nate"

For a girl we arent sure (DH is POSITIVE baby will be a boy so he isnt much use discussing girl names)
I like
Olivia Blair
Anna Blair
Elise Blair
Emma Blair
Sumner Blair (LOVE the name Sumner, but made the mistake of naming a cat that in college. cant bring myself to name a baby after my deceased cat. )

I probably wont use Olivia or Emma because they seem so popular.
post #37 of 53
For a girl (For which I am hoping)
I'm thinking:
Clover
Sage
Noelle
Rebekah Jane
Hannah
Denae

For a boy I'm thinking:
Andrew James
Noah
Jonah
Paul
Aaron Thomas

that's it for now, but we change our minds often, lol

When my DH and I were dating, he told me that he really liked the name Mikaela, and I fell in love with it - never heard of it. After we were married, we moved to a TINY little town, and there are Mikaelas and Kaylas EVERYWHERE. And when we go to the "big city" for shopping, almost every time we hear someone yelling, "Mikaela... get back here" or "Mikaela... where are you?"

It really got to me because I've never been one to follow a trend. I went to a small school for elementary, and there were 5 girls in my 7th grade class... three were Jenny, Jenni, and me... Gen. Ever since then, I said I'd never do a trendy name.

But we really like Mikaela - and that's still our top choice for a girl (would have been ds's name).

And that's exactly why my list of names stays so short... I'll love a name and my husband knows someone that had that name that he didn't get along with - and vice versa.

I dunno what it is but I smile when I hear that name!

Here's our update.

Derek William if it's a boy.

If it's a girl, (and I have a feeling it is) we're in trouble. Dh doesn't like either of my girl ideas--Margaret (Maggie) or, Viola Grace.

Anyone want to brainstorm with me? Viola was my grandmother's name, and if I can't use it as a first name, I WILL use it as a middle name. What goes with that?
