Yep, we came up with a new name - Dexter Daniel - about 48 hours after finding out the gender.

Yep, we had a girl name picked out since before I got pregnant: Seraphina Louise.

DD Seraphina born at home on 2/21/2012!

What's the origin of Caoimhin? And, it is pronounced the same as "Kevin?" I think it's really cool, but I definitely understand the spelling thing.

I WISH we came up with a final name, but not yet. We are having a BOY. My husband is pushing for Hudson, but I'm just not sure about that one. It just makes me think of the river or the car. He also likes (and I really like and could live with) Benjamin. I'm trying fervently to find a couple more names to try out and see if he'll go for one. I'd just hate to be stuck with a name that he and all of our friends and family LOVE and are what feels like pressuring me into going with. I mean, Hudson is ok, I don't HATE it or anything, but it's not my first pick that's for sure.

 

I'm the type that likes to pick something (or make a plan) and STICK with it. Move on. I THOUGHT we were going with Benjamin, but....now he's all obsessed with Hudson.

 

I guess time will tell what we end up with. If we decide I will reply back in this thread post and let y'all know.

My ds2 is named Cavan. It is also Irish, meaning "Handsome one". On the Ireland story map we had, there's a Captain Cavan, which ds thinks is real cool! Just thought I'd offer. It's almost like Kevin/ Caoimhin, different, and easy to spell too. Congrats on your boy!

Wow, I love each and every single one of these names.    We have barely even started the conversation yet about what to name our child... I am 22 weeks along and change I should probably get on that!!

 

aside:  What is up with this thread today?  I keep getting an advertisement in my text box when I try to post

i like that too.  i have no idea why dh has latched on to the other spelling, though i like the way it looks-- i just think it's way too hard to spell.

I'm so typical! We pick names when we POAS, then at 20 weeks I change my mind. We're still good on the girl name. We were going to go with S names (hints the baby S) now I'm toying with different boy names. Like Eryx or Embry.

thanks, Hildare!  Finn is both for "five" and for "Fin! it's done! no more of this long naming stuff!"  

 

I love everyone's names!   Beautiful!

We're on a current name break, but are prob going to go with Hudson for our little boy. My husband is obsessed (just LOVES it) and it's growing on me. I'll post back when we do make our FINAL decision in a few weeks.

I've been following that convo too winky.gif

 

We are Irish as well. My DS1 has an Irish first name, my DS2 has a family Irish surname as his middle name, and if this baby was a girl, I was set on the name Aine (awn-ye...Irish form of Anne/Anna, queen of the Munster faeries). I am sooo lost on a name for this little boy. I'm stuck on Fionn or Quinn. My DH still loves Kelly (see thread: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1330884/kelly-as-a-boyss-name). I'll gladly take any suggestions on Irish names!

We FINALLY got our girl name.  We find out tomorrow if we have to look for a boy's name instead :lol

 

Amelia June.  DH *LOVES* the name Amelia, but I really had to let it grow on me.  Amelia is my name, in a couple different languages, and it felt weird to have a "junior."  One of my friends pointed out that "June" is short for "junior" in some circles :lol.  DH wants to name the baby after Amelia Pond from Dr. Who, and call her Amy.  Again, I had to get my head around not just naming her Amy :shrug.

 

I love June, because my son suggested it as a name.  It was the first actual name he suggested (not superbaby, or Robodude or something).  Also, he absolutely loves summertime, and of course, June is the first month of summer here.  I thought it was fitting. 

 

So, I wasn't really involved in the process :lol  (I totally had veto power) this tme,  Last time, I named Michael before he was even conceived, with like NO input from DH LOL.

We have chosen the name Abigail Glory for our little girl.  I wanted just Glory, and feel like it's a name that God gave me and confirmed.  Hubby doesn't like it soooo I made a deal with him.  He gets to choose the first name, as long as it's a Bible name, has a good meaning, and is not a naughty girl from the Bible.  Abigail means Her Father's Joy, and in the Bible she was a very honorable lady.  I am sold.  And Hubby feels great that he finally got to choose a name after 4 kids!!
