I'm so excited that I get the name I want! I told DH that it just feels like that's his name. We don't know for sure that it's a boy, but I just feel like it is. And when DH brought up the name Oscar(that's right, it was his idea even!) I just KNEW that was this baby's name. I felt the same way when we picked Lucy as DD's name. I knew she was a girl before we found out and when the name Lucy came up, I just knew it was her name. Now that we've settled on a name that feels like the right one, I'm even more anxious to meet our little Oscar!



I love Oscar Dean! And Oscar and Lucy go so well together.. classic but still a little off-beat and unique.. Great choice!

Yup, that's the one I thought of, too.  Just wanted to make sure it wasn't just MY dirty mind that would come up with that.  I really like the name, but it would be one of the worst nicknames ever. I did know a girl whose name was Barbara Jean who ended up being called BJ. Poor kid.

I really like Emberley for a girl.  What about Emory for a boy?  Or Embry?

There must be other names with a similar sound to Hardin without the same ...ahem -- association.  Harlan is a family surname we've considered in the past...

I still like Emberley, too. ...

Emory is close to the name of my sister's EX.  Embry is interesting, though... thanks! 

*Turns out Elliott is completely off the table because DP associates it with an obnoxious guy from high school.  eyesroll.gif

 

Caitlin0919:  Congrats!  I LOVE the name Oscar.

butterflyblue: Do you guys know sex? I can't remember. I like Hartley for a girl, or Arden. Boys are a bit harder with that sounds, but you could use Holden. Emery to me feels like a girls name, but I like Embry.

What do you guys think of Oran as a middle name for a boy?  I don't know why I'm sweating the middle name, but it means "pale light" which I like for a winter baby.

butterfly-- yeah-- I like where you're going with the name, but something like Harper would still be similar without the, er, issue.

caitlin, I love Oscar, too.  I had a student with that name and he was the best.

 

LilMomma, love your name choices-- Malakai gets my vote, too.

 

blastomom, I hear you!

 

jenine, ugh about the DH .  .yeah.  We've had that issue.  We both picked names #1 and #3, he picked #2 (because he was so stubborn), so I said I'd get to pick #4.  He wants to pick #5 but there will be NO #6, so nope!  He is not pulling that one on me again!  That being said, I now love the name he picked for #2 and think it is perfect for her.

 

rachel, any name that gives you the warm fuzzies gets my vote!!!  You'll be saying/writing this name a million times!

I like it.. what would the first name be? In my opinion, middle names can be just about anything. They hardly get used, so I really don't stress middle names as much as first names.

I like the name Oran. I actually mentioned the name Orrin to DH has a possible fist name but DH said it makes him think of Orrin Hatch so he said no. I liked the name Orsin as well and DH's said no because it makes him think of Orson Welles. I'm not sure how that's a negative connotation, but it's very important to us that we both agree on a name so Oscar it is! I don't know what it is with me and O names with this baby. I kind of liked the name Owen for him as well. I guess I just feel like he needs an O name.

I like Orrin too, but Orrin Hatch having the name would be a total NO! LOL. My second is Oliver, and I've wanted to use Owen as a middle name before because that is my grandfather's name. So I guess I like O names too. I LOVE Oscar, a LOT, but I could never use it because it's too close to Oliver.

I know.  I don't know why I'm worrying.  But DH nixed it so it doesn't matter.  Boooooo.  j/k.  I think we actually came to an agreement last night so I'm psyched.

I finally committed to a name, she's going to be Josephine (after both of her grandmas-mary jo and roseanne josephine) but we're leaving the middle name until we meet her.
