Has anyone started to think about names?

We have a huge list of girl names but very few boy names! Our favorite girl name is Miabella Rose. My husband rejects most boy names but he likes the name Gianni. Our daughter's name is Arianna and our last name is very Italian so we're looking for something that sounds good with both her name and our last name. It's difficult! I tend to like Irish names which sooooo clash with our last name!

What are your possible baby names?

We thinking Elizabeth for a girl, but for a boy....DH and I have totally different ideas. He's a Jack, Bill, Joe etc kinda guy where as I prefer Alexander, Edmund, Ethan. If this baby is a boy I'm sure we'll be fighting over a name right up until the end

I never had any boy name but one & I used that last time:LOL
I always loved the name Henry so when he came along the 3rd time around I was happy. Now though, I HAVE to have a girl because there are no other boys names that light my fire....my FIL is "Ralph" & DH wants to name a boy after him. Let me tell you, that is NOT gonna happen.

For a girl, I am liking Charlotte Jane right now. That is this week! We'll see how things go.

Babytime - have you ever looked into Giacomo for a boy? =) It's one of my best friend's names, although we always call him Gio or Gianni

I love the name Joseph for a boy, but NO FREEKIN WAY am I using it. MIL's name is Josephine, totally NOT going there!!!! It usuall take 9 months of knock down drag out battleing for us to agree on a name so I still have another 5 months to duke it out with DH. Result is always good in the end though!!!!

Solo Mum to 4 and loving every minute of it!!!!

We just found out we are having a girl!!!

No definite names yet but so far we like:

Maile---(pronounced my-lee.)
Malia
Korah

And no middle name so far.

Just in case we have a boy, we'll name him Keali Sun. My other two boys names are Kobe and Makai, so we have to keep the Japanese or Hawaiian thing going. (They're half Japanese BTW)

I loooove Geneveive.

Girl: Elizabeth Lee ( my middle name is Lee)

We find out next Wed if boy or girl, so at least that part will be decided.

I had some great (IMO) boy names picked out this time:

Henry (my personal fav)
Harrison
Bennett or Benjamin
Mitchell

BUT we just found out we are having another GIRL!! I am completely at a loss as to names I like. Also it is diffricult because I have two daughters named McKayla and Mackenzie....BUT I may have found a name that I like:
Annika Rose
Do you think it "goes" with my other children's names? I'm just not sure how much I like this name.

We picked ours out already, either Lauren Elise or Isaac Alexander. I'm so bummed that Lauren has become so popular, but I've loved that name for years.

If the baby cooperates, we find out Monday if it's a boy or girl. So far, thanks to my sister, he or she has been known as Falcor

We have not been able to agree on ANY names so far. We come close - he likes Evan, I like Ethan and he likes Emma and I like Ella - my stepdaughter is Erin, so he wants to keep with the E names, but Erin thinks that will sound too funny.

We BOTH have Ralph grandfathers - and we decided early on that name was out.

We have more problems with the boy names thant he girl names.

There is only one boy name I like and it's Dakota Skye. Kody for short. I have no idea why--it's just stuck in my head.

Even though I suspect the baby is a girl, for various reasons.

Dh thinks Dakota Skye, particularly for a boy, sounds very, very hippy-ish -- and gave it raised eyebrow and a "We'll see--I have to think about that" which is better than the outright veto.

To make things complicated, I don't like Dakota for a girl. I wanted Hayley for a while, but now am back to Katelyn (which is just a different spelling of the girl name we had when we had ds). Our older daughter is Kayla and if we have a girl, she wants her to have the same initials. Dh agrees on Katelyn 100%, so no arguing there.

Now I just have to wait till my Sept. 13th U/S and see if we can find out! (I'm skeptical, since we couldn't find out with either of my kids at their routine U/S--though we did find out later with ds since I have a level II).

Totally subject to change because DH can never make up his mind! But, our current favorites are:

For a girl - either Skye Elizabeth or Abilgail Margaret
For a boy - Shane ??

Boys names are harder for us because we have three already!

So far, our names are:
Boy -- Zachariah Dean (Zachary for short)
Girl -- Eliana Joy (Ellie for short)

I also like Nathaniel Dean (it is MY first choice), and call him Nathan, but DH hates "Nate." He likes Nathan, but is sure people will call him Nate, and he can't stand that thought.

Of course, he thinks my name pet peeves are quirky and silly too, so I can't really push the issue. :LOL

Nemmer - I have to go with your husband on this one! I think I would naturally refer to a Nathan as "Nate". Sorry....

I have the same issue with Charles. DH likes it and I like it too, I also like Charlie, but I can't stand the nickname "Chuck" and think too many people will use it. :LOL

Yeah, sadly it is a natural nickname, huh? Bummer. But at least we both have a second choice we like. DH's first choice would be Joshua, which I love, but if it gets shortened to Josh, then it runs into our last name too much (our last name starts with an S) and that would bug ME to no end.

I don't think I could do Charles either -- Chuck would just give me the heebeejeebees. (No offense intended to any lurking Chucks or friends/family of Chucks who love the name)

Im not expecting, but hoping to be soon. When I was pregnant with DD (now 6) the deal was.. if it was a girl I got to pick the name, if it was a boy the dad got to pick the name (noteabley I agreed to this to shut him up, as I always win anyhow.. LMAO). I won, and went with Ashlynd LeAnn. I already have a list of names for my next one... Boys names would be Christopher Wayne, or Patrick Wayne (Wayne for my cousin who passed on), and for a girl.. Anything with Sue or Karen as the middle name (for my Mother Karen Sue, who has also passed). Thats all I have to add

We know the baby is a girl. Her name will be Lila. Our last name starts with an A & we usually choose two middle names. I'd love to find an I & and L name so that her initials would be LILA. Corny, huh?

So far I like Lila Indira Lee

We know ours is a boy, too. We didn't want to, but there you go... We've settled on Ryder (or maybe Reidar, which is the Scandanavian version), but the middle name is a battle ground. I like Leopold, which would give DS the same initials as DD. I sort of like the continuity there. Other options are Jackson (or Jacson after his Daddy whose initials are JAC), Isaac, William, Franklin, or Theodore. It's maybe wait and see what he looks like from here, too. Good luck!
