Now that we know we are having a boy, we have been focusing on boy names. So far, we have: Chapin, Rex, Hadden, Beau, Hayes and Beck. We are tossing a few others around but this is our list so far.
Yep. I like Joss, Jocie and even Jolie. I love the name Jolie, but one of DH's friend's has a child named Jolie and we see them fairly regularly.

I like your choices of Hadden and Hayes. I've been trying to get Holden on our list, but DH says no way.

I like Holden too! DD is Halsea -- I must have something for "H" names!

Plus, I can think of a couple of cute nicknames.
:

My parents called me Jossie when I was little. My friends call me Jos. My Dad's family calls me Josh, which I vastly prefer to a mispronounciation of my full name.

ok don't freak out

shh, don't tell.
it's a big secret (actually the secret's out...)

for a boy we don't really have anything yet. I like Red but that's about it.

For a girls we have a definate. Dh and I both agree, and the reason it's a secret it b/c we know we're going to get some grief for it.
Diesel
We love it. The only problem is that our son's name is Axel, and it seems there is a auto theme going on, which is just coincidence.
However, I also like Onyx and Hazel.There are a lot of other pretty, feminine names I like but would never consider naming my kids because they're overused and popular right now.

Ok, you can laugh now.

I'd be the last one to laugh. I prefer unusual names myself and much prefer them (including your picks) to "names of the day." It is just really important to us that our kids have meaningful, unique, and not overused names. Everyone has different criteria but those are mine. Personally, I'd way rather my name be Diesel than one of the really trendy names.
post #127 of 150
Im peeking in from the March DDC you guys have some fab suggestions.

We are having a girl.. dh and I have mostly decided upon Ruby Mae...our other kids have really unique names so I am hoping this wont be common where we live..( I have never met a Ruby mae) So I am hoping its old fashioned enough to have not have a full swing revival just yet..
post #128 of 150
Thanks PeaceLovingMama! You hit the nail on the head- I was always one of 3 'Amanda's' in my class at school- and not that I don't like my name, it just has no personal identity attatched to it for me, it's just my name, how I'm called. My sister was 'Genieve' and to me her name is her because it's absolutely unique- my mom shortened Genevieve to get it. And it's not that I want my kids to be 'so original', I'd just like them to feel that their names identify them, that they're unique and mean something, maybe.

Oh, and I hate trendy things. Blah. trends are for sissies.

YummyMummy740 I think Ruby is a beautiful name. It was my grandmothers name, but for that reason my husband doesn't like it...lol. Not too common!

I am also really partial to unique / unusual names. (I think Diesel is a strong, sassy name that a little girl could wear REALLY WELL!) Most of all I have found that there is never much point in narrowing down the name choice too far during pregnancy because often when you meet the baby you will decide the name just doesn't fit. My second child was supposed to be named Cohen, but when he came out it just did not fit. And with this little babe, although I have some names that I love, who knows what will suit him/her when the time comes...
post #130 of 150
Wanderinggypsy- so true. With #1 we really didn't know what we would name ds#1- although we had a couple names we liked. Right when he was born, though, even in my self-drugged state I thought- 'he's an Axel, this is Axel'- he came so fast (3 hrs45min), and was a fighter from birth-- even though it took us 4 days to actually commit to a name!! (and even though 'rocket' which we were jokingly considering would have been quite appropriate) We had to mull it over and make sure it was right- even though I knew- and it was so perfect because he was the firstborn grandchild/son so we also gave him both grandfathers' names as middle names- and how proud I am to call his name now!!
As well- personally I find it's so nice NOT to know the sex so you CAN'T pre-name your child- and therefore assign him/her an identity before they enter the world- somehow to me being named is a rite of being born- and although that baby sure does have an identity and personality IN the womb it's not until they are birthed that they are named...weird? well, whatever. that's the first time I've actually 'verbalized' that, even though I've thought about it indirectly....
anyway...I think it's high time for my shower...

Hey all, been a while since i've been on here, but here goes. Preggo with 3rd child, a boy. have two little girls, khadija 3 and sumayyah 2. I am really in love with the name Zion, family and dh could care less about it, but i love. so its between Zion Jacob or Zion Xavier.
post #132 of 150
Oh, my gosh! You know what...my last baby is Dominic. His middle name is Xavier. But for a couple days, I was going back and forth between Xavier and Xion.

So, if you're taking votes...mine is for Zion Xavier.
post #133 of 150
Thanks monkeyprincess . thats my fav as well.. tough choice tho. dhs name is jacob so i thought wed give the baby his name as well.
post #134 of 150
OHHH I Love the name Zion. I am afraid I am not much help with the MN but Zion is a fantastic choice IMHO!
post #135 of 150
Zion is cool. I was crazy about the name Xavier for a while but then a lot of people named their babies that, and insisted on mispronouncing it, which kinda ruined it for me. Since half my family is french, and Xavier is typically a french name, hearing it prononced EX-AY-VEE-ER just grates on me. But pronounced properly, it still ROCKS OUT in my opinion.

I'm guessing that's the X-men phenomenon, lol.

So... what do you all think of Arden? For a boy. I thought we had settled on Nathan but now... I just need to explore a few options I guess I'd use it as a MN but Nathan Arden... too rhymey? Whadaya think of Arden?
post #137 of 150
Not from this ddc, but i love this thread. You guys have so many cute names picked out. If we hadn't already picked out names i might've stolen a few for my list. Oh well , there's always the next baby.
So far for a boy we've picked
Lucien Kai or Mason caleb ( leaning toward lucien)
And for a girl
Lelaina ( leina or lane for short) can't figure out a middle name, but we want it to start with M
post #138 of 150

I like the sound and look of Arden. Does it have a meaning?

It seems like a strong name that a boy and then man would wear well.
post #140 of 150
Thanks "Ardent" means passionate, and the forrest of Arden is a famous place in Shakespeare... I am going to keep thinking about and Nathan, try it out with my family... I did hear that it's an Armenian name, so others have even heard of it See, honey, it's not THAT unusual
