I'm thinkin' Twyla for a girl (DH doesn't like this but too bad) and Callan for a boy.

Our other DC are Fiona and Moira.

I LOVE Callan! Your DC's names are great as well. JW, how do you pronounce Moira?

DH won't go for it but I am fond of Penelope (nn Poppy). I also like MaryJane (as those are the first names of both grandmas) but he says everyone will think of marijuana. I said he's crazy. Opinions on that one?

TY! Moira is MOY-rah. It's common in Scotland, not so much here!

That's what I was thinking, it's a beautiful name!

I have had all my names picked for all the babies I want since my ds was about 2 months old. DH hasn't agreed to them yet but here they are.

Girls
Eden Katherine ( Katherine is my grandma's name)
Ava (ok I am suck on a middle name here)

Boys
Ethan Alexander
Lucas William

The middle names might change but the first name are staying.

For a girl it will be Autumn Rose. We've had that name picked out since Dec of 1999!

If its a boy I got dh to agree to Lucian Thranduil like a mos ago. But since we got the He Hasn't brought it up again. I think he will back peddle. I know he wants Thranduil so thats a given but the first name might change. We'll see.

OOooo, cool name Full Heart!

We have several names we like, but one that really sticks with us, and it works for boy or girl. Middle names will be tougher, although we might just skip it altogether (the first name we like is rare, and our last name is unique - there are currently two people in the world as far as we know who have it - so it's not like the kid will be Jane Smith and need a middle name just to narrow it down).

We're probably waiting until we meet the baby to say for sure.

I like Kaliyah Nicole for a girl and Kameron Scott for a boy..

Hi everyone! All these name ideas are so wonderful!

My gut says I'm having a boy.

DS1 is named Seamus so I think I'd want another celtic/irish name for #2. Any ideas?
post #32 of 163
Hey all - I love these names.

Kaliyah is beautiful

Irish names: Liam? it's getting popular, but I love it! I think there are lots of websites with Irish names.

yep - Mary Jane makes me think pot. sorry. In the south there's lots of Mary names, some of which are very interesting. We know a Mary Avnor and a Mary Leavitt (levit)

Our options:
Boy - Eyler Noordermer.
- It's a mouthful, but we'd call him Eli. Noordermeer is DH's middle name and MIL's maiden name and is a nod to his dutch family. One of DD's middle names is also dutch (Hendrika, pronounced Onj-reeka)
Henry is a possible backup name

Girl - not sure of a first name, but middle name will be Clyde (after GMIL's mother - GMIL just recently passed)
I like Kiera Clyde, but Dh is reminded of the japanimation Akira

We've limited ourselves to family names so far - or reworkings of family names. But we have to have a name we love also, so we might stray from that. (like, RObin comes from a family name on my sid e- Robert. There are 3 generations of Robert, but it's not a name I'd name a child - butwe love RObin for a girl). If this one is born in China (we're moving to Shanghai in a few weeks) we might go with a chinese name. who knows.

Also, our kids will all have 2 names - DH and I have different last names, and our kids will have his last name and my last name as a 2nd middle name.

hmmm... I love celtic names too... what about Colin, Kearney, or Kegan?
post #34 of 163
Oooh I love Eden as a name! DH and I could actually agree on another so I am going to name the main character in my next book that, instead! lol.

So, we have currently...
Sophie Ann
Nathan __?___

Sophie we're still debating to whether to make it Sophia for when she's older and wants something more formal for her resume, but it's not like it's Timmy or Billy or Christy, right? We'll see. I love how it means wisdom! Like the sophists and like how characters in books named Sophie always represent wisdom. And both of our mothers have Ann as a middle name, so DH thought it'd be a great idea

Nathan seems to have just taken hold as one boy's name we actually both like that works (we have a terrible last name for matching names to... starts with a "sh" sound and is very german and harsh, one looong syllable, lol) but we still need a middle name. We're Catholic so I'm guessing we'll go with a saint's name, although I'm not sure it's required. Any suggestions?

I love the names I'm seeing here!

I'm also looking for a few good Celtic names!

My son's name is Ronan (there's a suggestion for you meggie!) and so far we like Liam, Colin, Conor, Ian for boys.

We both love Amelia for a girl, so it looks like that might be the winner if we have a girl. Amelia Clare (Clare is my mom's middle name, after County Clare in Ireland).

I think it's a boy, however!
post #36 of 163
This is our 6th and we think we've got the names down.
To join our 5 boys named- Hagan (pronounced Hagen), Keelan, Garek, Rylee and Gabriel:
Elijah Edward for a boy
And
Isabella Gwendolyn OR Eliana Angelique for a girl.

Praying for a girl! THe odds are i my favor now, right?!
post #37 of 163
Hi Jess!!!!

Was wondering if I'd see you here....
post #38 of 163
We know if it's a girl her name will be Edie Ruth (Ruth is my grandmother's name). We're still not 100% on a boy's name but lately we're really leaning towards Aidan James (James is dw's dad's name).

I have a question for you all - do you share your name choices with people? I don't mind people knowing, but I always preface it with "I'll tell you, but we really like these names so if you don't like them honestly I don't want to hear your opinion." I feel rude saying that, but I have to be honest too!

yogamama04, I was just thinking about the name Ronan today!

DH reallly likes the name Rowan. It's funny because before we got pregnant, I made a small cross out of the branches of a rowan tree (something the ancient Celts did to protect/increase fertility)--and I guess it worked. DH didn't know anything about it...
