Let's just get those names out there! - Page 3

post #41 of 53
Last time we were pregnant we said we would come up with names we liked and wait on a first name until we spent some time with the baby. Because some names just have a "look" that goes with them imo. We also decided to do 2 middle names and take one name from each family.

I was convinced I was having a girl and the big three names I liked were Chlöe, Zöe, and Olivia. Two days before my planned section (bad idea looking back) my sister called from Germany where she was au-pairing and said "I like the name Lauren." I liked Lauren as well and it was on our list but it was down around the middle. Hours after she was delivered and I finally got to hold her I looked at my little girl and announced her name was Lauren. Surprised dh quite a bit. Her full name is Lauren Elizabeth Linnea A__________-L_________ (last names).

For this baby we have only one girl name picked out: Nova Elin Marie. I'm originally from Nova Scotia and I lovelovelove the fact that her name will mean something and with ties to family being so important to me....

For a boy I like Lennon and Cohen. Dh nixed Cohen right away. We both like Vincent but my sister claims everyone will call him Vinny Bobarino (Welcome Back Kotter) I don't think so but it is one of those things that someone says and it sticks with you. We're looking at Lennon Joesph Ellis or Vincent Joesph Ellis. But then I might just make something up on the spot.

I really really want another girl so I can use the name Nova.

Ooo...I wanna play! IF I'm pg, I'm due 11/30 but I'm 13 dpo with a BFN but major sxs starting this afternoon so here's hoping for a nice surprise. We already started in on names, and have come up with anything K or J or celtic/gaelic as DS's name is a Gaelic derivitive and my name is celtic, and DP is Scottish so we'll see. I kinda like some of the D irish names....Donovan, etc. as well as Kane, Karson, Kadyn. For a girl though, we're pretty set on Koster Elizabeta (or Elizabetha depending)

Please don't mind me popping in here...

If I'm pregnant, I'll be due in December. But, nobody's over on that board yet, so I'm here.

My name list:

Girls
Alexandria
Kamali ("Molly" for short)
Maya Angelina (my favorite so far)
Ariana
Ayla Marketta (#2 fave)

Lilliana
Mahalia
Michaela
Olivia
Solana

Boys

I've noticed most of the girls names I like end in an "A", and most of the boys names I like end in an "N". I have a feeling it's a girl.

What does everyone think of the name Alba? I got it from a book & kind of like it. Plus I don't know anyone named it!
post #45 of 53
what does Alba mean? I know it has a meaning but it escapes me.
I think "albany"....when I hear it...cause whenever we go to NYC we have to go to Albany first...

lol do any of you go throug this you think a name you've picked is slightly original only to find it on the "A" list of many people? I have two friends who named their kids completely unique names...Madison and Mackenzie until they actually took them to the playground didn't realise how popular they were..

I see Kane is very popular now, but I am choosing it as its special to me so......but would people just think I got all fru fru with the spelling?
Catháin vs Kane? Catháin is the original Gaelic, so I feel stronger to picking that than Kane/Keanne etc... or just combine them both Catháinick... lol so dh can get his 'ick'....

That's what happened with us and Mikaela (I posted about this just a few above). We thought it was so orriginal - hadn't ever heard it (at least not a lot) until we moved here... and now it seems like every other girl is named that where we live. It's become a joke to us everytime we hear it now.

But we're still set on that name for a girl. There's nothing saying that she'll grow up here with all the others - and even if she does, she won't be going to school with them.

Then again, that's a lot of assumptions that this baby (or any future ones) will be a girl!

I am not that fond of Mac names..I don't put Micheala into the Mac category as its really Micheal-a. But names for girls that start with Mac I guess bug me as first it means son of.... my bf (black) named his daughter a name that translates into son of the white man...funny but....

That's great!!!

Yeah, seriously, we love the name. I saw someone in another ddc talking about names... said she always wanted to name her child Ryan. Her cousin had a boy in December that they named Ryan, and there are a bunch of Brians in their family. So she said, "You know what... so what? He'll be MY Ryan." And I loved that attitude!

So, if Zy is a girl... she'll be OUR Mikaela
