Crashing you DDC to say - I like Nora Winslet.

I have a Cecile and an Antoinette (we pronounce it an- t' - net, not an-twa-net. DH says it the Italian pronunciation and that's the way his grandmother pronounced her name.

I think we've decided on Casey Carol if it's a girl and Colton James if it's a boy. For some reason the only names we can both agree on start with C. No idea why! We haven't decided on the spelling of either of those, though, just the names. Carol is MIL's middle name since Codi has my mom and I's middle name. DH also brought up that there's a family tradition where the sons in the family take on their father's first name as their middle name. Can anyone think of a first name that would sound good with Jared as the middle name?

cassie june
emmerson june
emmerson darline
kendall cassie

i just dont know. the dh kind of wants something that goes with our other daughter's name which is addison and we call her addi so he was thinking something like allisa and alli for short.... any ideas?
I like the name Cassie and I think it does go with your daughter's nickname of Addi, you just don't shorten it like you do Addison. Addi and Cassie. Although, if you went with Emmerson, you could nickname her Emmi to go with your other daughter's nickname.

I love Colton James. (Casey is great too) If I were having a boy, I'd think I'd second guessing his name right now. It was Trey Caspian.

I like the name Caspian.

We found out we are having a boy, although I always love thinking of little girl names. So much for Aponee or Evie.

My husband likes a name from his family...Burleigh (pronounced Bur-Lee)

What do you all think? Can you get past the fact that we call big, rough, gruff men burly men? LOL I know that sounds funny, but it IS how we use the descriptive form of the word. Then again, at least I am not thinking of naming a girl Burleigh, hehe. That would just be cruel.

Here is where the hard part comes. Since we have started this uncommon trend of using ones middle name as the name we refer to them by, we will probably be doing that again with this babe. It is annoying to explain to so many people who wonder why we do that, but there's a reason (a long story)

Anyway, which is your pick for sounding nice with Burleigh, remembering that the middle name is the name we will refer to him as:

William Burleigh Rowe
Frederick Burleigh Rowe
Hugh Burleigh Rowe
LeRoy Burleigh Rowe
Floyd Burleigh Rowe
Irving Burleigh Rowe

Our other annoying trend is using only old family names in our children. Since we both have a lot of women in our families, we are running low on boy names. These are some of the better ones that go with Burleigh.

Thanks for your input ladies~

Megan - The name that first popped up in my head when you asked was Norah Michelle Dunn......

NeKisha - For my two cents, I like William Burliegh!


As for us - We are almost positive it's a girl ("she" gave us a quick peek and the tech got a quick, not very ggod, shot and it appears to be a girl, but I have another u/s on the 27th (we didn't get a good look at all 4 heart chambers and also the amniotic fluid ws a bit low - they are pretty sure due to my havinh the flu and getting dehydrated...), so we will double check! LOL Anyway, we are pretty sure we are going with Ashley May. DD#1 has my/my grandmother's middle name as hers, DS has my gradfather's middle name as his and May is my other grandmother's middle name... DH hates the names on his side - except James for a middle name if a boy... But we have NO idea on a first name! So good thing it's more than likely a girl!! LOL

Other names for girls *I* like:

Kylie Rose (I swear! If I could have DH have NO say in name, THIS would be my choice, but he has vetoed and it is NOT up for discussion! LOL)
Kyra May

DH likes:

Kitara (Um NO! He got it from the female main character on the Nickalodeon show Avatar! LOL)

And for a boy Omar! I DO NOT like this one!

So, Ashley is pretty much our "default name" meaning that it will more than likely be Ashely unless something else comes along that "hits us" as being "her name"!

Its a fine name but too plain for us. My other kids' middle names are Carys and Marek for reference.

I think a Norah Michelle would be lost! Norah is actually a lot plainer/more common than I'd normally consider but its sticking in my head lately.

Hey Megan, what do you think of these?

Norah Maeve
Norah Indigo
Norah Marieve

I sure love picking out girls names. It's SOOO much easier. Even once we knew this one was a boy, it took us ages to come up with a boy name (we had the girl name picked out weeks ago!).
post #69 of 76
If we have a boy, and I think we will he will be Henry Lawrence.

We have absolutely no girl names set in stone. DH likes Althea. I don't hate it but it's not my favorite. I think we used the one girl name we really love on DD! (Maya Violet). It fits her so perfectly too!
post #70 of 76

post #71 of 76
punky monkey I really want Noah too (although I want it spelled Noa) but dh is totally not for it. It is one of my favorite names

HulaJenn I really like Gavin and if we didnt have family with that name I would use it

christinespurlock I love the name Meadow and wanted to name dd2 that but my dh said the same thing, too hippy

NeKisha I like Hugh

We are having a boy, this will be our last child, we have 2 girls already. Having a very hard time with boy names too. We both like Marley but someone told me they think it is a girls name, what do you think, does anyone know any boys named Marley?

I just looked up Marley on babynames.com. They have three classifications, boy, girl and both. They say it's girl, sorry. I think it would be a little tough to be a boy with name mostly used by girls. I knew a boy Renee and he hated it, he tried to go by Ren.

We decided on a name. It's a little dorky, but I love it. Felix Cuthbert. I'm very happy with this decision.

From what I gather, it's one of those names that was traditionally a boy name (way back in the day, like Ashley) but has been completely usurped by girls. Marley does not sound inherently girly or feminine to me. Personally, I wish it weren't such a faux pas for boys to take on neutral sounding girl names the way it is okay for girls to take on boy names.

I especially like Maeve. I'll run it by dh.
Indigo is pretty but it made me think of Violet which I think is lovely too.

So here's my new trick to getting my dh to agree on the name I want. I refer to her as Ava all the time. I even have my 3yo in on it. Yes, it's bad, but hey he got to name our son
post #76 of 76
I find this much more daunting than I would have thought! It's a relief to have a place to bounce names around - we've committed to not talking with friends and family about our choices. But our nieces have decided to put together a list of their preferred names, one of which was Avril Levigne!

We've done a little bit of 'work' on this, but haven't come up with a name we're both fully committed to. We have a hard to pronounce, stunted last name, so there are some names that simply don't flow. We're using a family name as the middle name (Georgeanne or Robert). Here are some of our ideas:

Girls: Lilah, Marin, Amelia, Selah, Eden
Boys: Felix, Ewen, Oliver, Truman, Eliot

Nekisha: I second the vote for Hugh, but I also like William
Christinespurlock: I can relate to the concern of my daughter growing up to be a professional. My test is to think of the name as Chief Justice Firstname Lastname and see what I think of it.
