My son's name is Indigo. He is 9. Everyone told me they were going to call him Indy, but no one ever did. And I thought he was going to be this nature child. Har-de-har har. He is such a techie. Working on getting a HAM radio licences, loves circuits and electronic components, knows computer programing languages and how to use them. He is just like his dad. He and I couldn't be more different. Though he does have my flare for dramatics (and I am not talking acting :)
Fun loving crunchy mommy to an amazing outgoing adventurous boy named Logan Cloud 2/2/07 and our little ball of energy Jayden Edge 11/28/10 and wife to Jet 7/3/05 expecting our third 09/21/14
First will either be...
Middle options we like are...
McCay (when partnered with Whitley it would give the child 3 last names for a name, but we'd likely pair it with Laurel).
Louise or Louisa
Do any combos sound better than other to you?
I LOVE baby names. Marci, I'm like you... I want to have lots of babies so I can use all the names I love.
I already have Madeline Grace, Ainsley Rose and Genevieve Camille
I don't talk to anyone IRL about names, except dh so I'm excited to talk about them here.
If this is a girl I think our first choice is Ingrid Constance (Constance is my mother and mil's name and my mother passed 2 years ago, so we're definitely using that as a middle name) I really like the name Evelyn, but it seems to be really popular these days. I really like to pick names that are not in the top 100. There are so many other Madelines out there and that bugs me.
I also like Hazel and Mallory for girls.
If this is a boy I think our first choice is Abbott William. I really love the name Grady, but dh isn't as keen. But if we got the twin boys that I've been praying for then I think it would be Abbott and Grady, but I don't know. Boys names are definitely harder.
I loooove your names style! Only 1 or 2 I probably wouldn't use but still don't dislike them.
We like Isaiah but it's too popular.
Nehemiah is nice. I will ask DH but I already know what he will say.
And I have a friend and our kids share names. She has 4 and I have 2 and she has both of mine. We met after our kids were named! She has one that is basically Azariah but with an L instead of an H. So with our already matching names I can't do it. I do love that one so much!
Hey, if Indigo gets taken, you could always switch to Inigo... "My name is Inigo Montoya..." Immortal words from The Princess Bride. Hey, why not?
Just having fun, no harm meant! And please don't think I'm laughing at your name choices. I just saw Indigo and at first misread it as "Inigo" and immediately thought of that.
Haha! I was reading through baby names last night and came across this name and immediately thought of the Princess Bride which is funny because my #1 girls name is Buttercup. I'm glad other people get this pop culture reference. It's one of my favorite movies ever!
Any new inspirations? You all are surprisingly quiet about names...
I thought of a few more I like.... River (for boy or girl), Augustine (Au-GUS-tin), Haddon, Ira and Obed...
Still very little idea on what we'd finalize for a boy, but we pretty much have our girl name chosen!!! It will just depend what she looks like!
Here are my kid's ideas about what the baby should be named.
Katie, married to my beloved Paddy
Catherine Anne "KJ" born November 10th, 2011
I can only think of a couple boys first names I like and luckily DH likes them too. But we do have our boys second middle name picked out. Just no first or first middle
Girls I have *no idea* of where to even start... Usually girls names come pretty easy to me and boys names are harder but not this time. DH has one girls name he loves (Cadence) and I refuse to use it. I first of all don't like it and second I have really strong name associations with personality and behaviour and that's one I don't like.
My list of names that I or DH don't like is miles long... And we've full out fought about names before so it's a struggle for us even at the best of times
I am hoping to find our which way we can lean on naming in a couple weeks...
I actually don't share baby names online.. Its a paranoia thing of mine. However the baby's initials will be MMM which is slightly on the amusing side. My oldest wants to sew him a huge M&M stuffed animal.
We're having a girl and had been set on Mae Loise. We already have a William Edward and "William and Mae" just didn't flow right for me. SO--we're going to name her Maisie Loise (William and Maisie sound better together I think), and then we can call her Mae if we want later on.
I'm in love with this name. Just like @kateaton mentioned earlier, we aren't sharing names with people until Miss Maisie is born, so this is fun to be able to say it on here.

Plus DH & DD1(8) & DS(6) & DD2(5) & DD3(2)
Chels - Wow... Love Maisie! That is so lovely.
MM - Love your choices too... very masculine and strong.
I am really stuck on Solomon for a boy, but my dh is sort of non-committal about it... I like all the others, but still like Solomon a bit better... Hurmph!
Well, MIKGRIN, we're a Dish family ;-) Danielle and Derek ;-) Delilah sounds lovely too.. altho< i REALLY like Dorathy. I AM partial to the WoO, tho;-)
I've added a new name, Solace. From what I've read it's traditionally a girls name, but it might just have to be a boys name now as I'm really digging it!
I like Dorothea too. One of our children is named Thea and we considered naming her Dorothea but paired with her middle name it didn't work.
What about these D names!
I am partial to Dagney on the girls list or Dixon or deacon on the boys... Have fun!
I have a thing for names ending in the "O" sound. A dog named Arlo, a cat named Yellow and a son named Indigo. Sage is my oddball name. We are naming this little one Violet. But I love the name Meadow. (Husband hates it)
So happy to see you back around @Motivated Mama! I've been wondering what you are up to and how you are doing!
We haven't even started talking names yet. I think DH is of the opinion to just wait until we know the gender so we can eliminate the other sex. I of course think we should have a back up just in case lol
He's also "called" naming this one and that will happen over my dead body... Sorry I go through all this work, we decide together! Although he says I've always picked in the past I just don't see that as true he's always had equal vote. Maybe a bit less so with DD1 but we weren't married and I didn't think that he should automatically get his last name for the baby. So we "compromised" (at least it felt that way to me) after a couple tense weeks of barely talking!
This is us exactly! And he had full vote then too because I loved Cassidy and would have named her that if it weren't for his vote! He never gave any effort to coming up with a list for me to pick a few choices from either. The only two he threw out there were Jezabel and Delilah, when my whole family are strict Catholics and would have been horrified by the Biblical meanings...and he just blurted them out when I got frustrated and asked what suggestions HE had!
We just found out this one is a boy and he "called" naming this one. No way, Jose! His boy suggestions were Drake (he's a duck hunter, I'm a lifelong vegetarian and animal lover) Hunter, (again, NO!) and Marley (dog name to me.) He didn't want to find anything else, and liked Killian too, so...how is that not us agreeing?
There might be some compromise with this one...he gets the last name (it's mine too this time) and we had an agreement with our first two that the middle would be my family name (Kathleen, after my grandma, also my middle) and he would have the boy middle (Adam, his name, and he was named after his grandfather, with whom shared a birthday.) This time we a middle ready. Might use that to help him have more of a choice.
So he was back to "well it's a girl anyways so we don't need to find out"... And while yes it most likely is a girl, I just have this nagging feelin like it may not be (but could just be wishful thinking). I really want to find out this time! For a few selfish reason really. But I cannot for the life of me come up with ANY girl names I like! And usually I'm all about the girl names and flounder with the boys! So he says "S.carlett C.adence P.atricia LastName" and is adament he's name "her"... Ummmmmm no! I *hate* C.adence and he's been pushing for it forever... He only likes it because of one of the characters in American Wedding S.carlett would be because he has a huge celeb crush on S.calett J.ohannsen *rolls eyes* (he didn't tell me the reasons persay but I know that's why ) and P.atricia is my moms middle name and we put a family name in that spot. I thought he wanted A.udrey after his late grandmother so that was random. Plus I'm not sure that's a name I'd use!? Both of those names but especially my mom's middle would absolute drive his mother INSANE so it's tempting that way
Naming this time is going to be a horrible mess because he really thinks he's going to be the one doing it *sigh* oh and the kids think they have some sort of say in it!!! We don't tell the names to anyone IRL or usually online (hence the periods so they can't be googled ) until babe is born because we got So.Much.Flack the first time!
