I know it is early but this is one of the first things I started thinking about. We think we might have a boys name but are at a loss on girls names.

We had a girl name as soon as the pee dried on the stick for #1...but then we had a boy! So we will use that name if it's a girl this time. Miriam Faith :) For boys I REALLY love Judah Paul, but hubby doesn't really like it. We haven't really talked about it, except for the fact that we will use our girl name from the last pregnancy if it's a girl.

We have a girl name picked out, but no boy name.  We had agreed on a girl name before our youngest was born, but didn't have a boy name we felt strongly about.  He was a boy, and we spent a week looking over name websites and trying to find & agree on a name.  We have four boys and if this one is a boy, I'm not sure we'll be able to find a fifth name we both like.  

 

If it's a boy, I think I would like a name that starts with "L"; unfortunately, I haven't found one we both like.

I like Cady (Elizabeth Cady Stanton) for a girl and Clive for a boy. I think I really want to do a C name because DH and I are both C's and right now we have 3 girls who have J names and I REALLY don't want to do another J name but I don't want the baby to feel left out.

 

I also like Chaucer for a boy. Cash and Cree (my husbands nickname) are also nice. Then Coraline and Caralina are nice too.


Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!

We have a girl name picked out and a boy middle name but Who knows if they will feel right. We had a list of about 15 boy names when our twins were born and used none of them because they just didn't seem to fit them.

I'm still working to convince DH that our daughter can and should be named Charlie, or Charly. We've also talking about Susie/Suzanne and Caira as possible names we like. But I didn't just tell you that because I'm not telling anybody....

I like Piper and Benjamin...but I just can't get a feel on it this time. We didn't decide until around 7 months with DD...but with that pregnancy, I KNEW from early on that it was a girl. This time it has been hard to judge, and I can't even put a finger on more names that I like.

What about Charlize?  It's traditionally a girl name and you can call her Charlie.

I'm having a hard time loving any names this time.  I normally obsess and have to narrow down from all the names I LOVE, but this time I'm just kinda... meh.  I was so into William if my girls had been boys (named for my grandpa) but I'm having the same reaction as everything else now.... meh.  Maybe it's the 1st trimester hormones that make all of life seem blah.  :)

Brisen, 

 

I like L names and there are lots of great not-overused ones for boys. Since I love names I have to throw my two cents in though I am not sure how our baby name tastes match up. 

 

Leander

Lorenzo (plus a cute nick name: Ozzy)

Linnaeus

Lysander

Lucius

 

Some other nice ones: Leif, Liam, Leland, Luca

I think our boy's name is a lock.  And a middle name for a girl is also set, but we're having issues agreeing on a first name for a girl.  We have one we like (well, DH loves, I like) but I'm not set on it.

For a girl name we love Evie Maye right now, but that could change.  As for boy names my DH is way too picky and only likes Jack.  Cute, but I feel like there are a lot of those right now...still in a stand off.  eyesroll.gif

Charlize....like as in "Sharleeze" or "Sharleese" (pronunciation)? That's nice but I'm stickin' with Charlie.

 

I love hearing what other mamas are thinking for names. So many creative names these days...

Ozzy -- all of these were on our list last time!  I guess our tastes do match up pretty well.  We have an Anders now, though, so Lysander is off the list.

I've only heard it like "Sharleeze."  It's French (the feminine form of Charles), so I think it would have that "z" sound in it.

charley (or charleigh) is our girl name also.  its a family name for my side (all the men of course) and my middle name is Leigh - but ive always thought it was cute and spunky for a girl.  my mom said she wanted to name me Charlize (which i respectfully DO NOT like as an alternative) but no one would go for it.  when my husband and i met i was obsessed with him agreeing to the name of our future unborn child.  i got him on board with this and now ive actually tried to throw some others in the mix and he can't shift gears.  go figure.

 

my MIL HATES shortened names as full names.  she gets hung up on that lack of formality.  which i think is crap.  but i get the tradition - she's old school.  we have just had to agree to disagree b/c we both get fired up about it.  the only thing i don't like is the idea that she'd totally be called 'CHUCK' by someone at some point.  or herself.  and chuck just geeks me out for a girl.

 

my other current top contender girl names are:  Lachlan, Sabine (yes 'griffin & sabine'...), Laurel, Embry, and Josephine (my husbands middle name is Joseph - and i love 'josie').  Only Embry wont happen b/c its his dad's name and they pretty much don't speak.  lol.  so someone can have it!!  here.  i just donated it to the name bank.  the others are copyrighted.  

 

my husband doesn't like playing the name game, like at all.  but he does like the name Maceo for a boy.  but we are soooooooo not italian...and it sounds too italian.  but i love the name and think its unique.  but i don't like MACE.  you always have to think of the shortened possibilities!! ahhh!!

 

* I love love love all the day long - the name Amelie but think it would get butchered here in the states.  and we aint french so we'd be total posers (like Maceo)  but it rocks.

I have a love affair with the name Ellis for a girl. I can already see her in my mind. So, dibs. ;)

Ditto on the ultrasounds...I will be shocked if this is a boy, so it will be good to have time to get used to the idea of a boy if I am wrong. Of course I'll be thrilled either way, but am just getting such strong girl vibes! If it is a boy he might be Miles Benjamin.

 

Separate note... we are stuck for a middle name. Needs to have 3 or 4 syllables, flexible on traditional or contemporary. Anyone have brilliant ideas?

Love this thread!
