I plan to have the two names I like best picked out (don't even know if we'll find out the gender) & unless (when babies born) s/he really doesn't look like the name suits him/her, that's the one we'll use.

I have problems picking out names...I'm a teacher of young children...even 1 yr olds on Fridays come fro a therapeutic playgroup....so I see lots of names and I can also see the trends. That really causes me to discount many names I would otherwise like YKWIM?

My ds wasn't named until after birth.

I only have on fav...Clover for a girl but dh HATES it...he knew a Clover and she wasn't a nice person.

we have been putting names down on a list so far we only have 3 girls names and 3 boys names.

Girls
Makaydee(this is my fav)
Nora
Heidi(this is DW's fav)

Boys
Spencer(this is DW's fav)
Marley
Kendrick(this is my fav)

we did the same thing last time when i was pregnant with my son and we stuck with our favourite. i am so in love with the name Makaydee at the moment i am hoping i have a girl. but we wont know what we are having until they are born so i am sure our list will grow a million miles long before that time.

We have a boy name Nathan Blair. Blair is for my father-in-law. He died last year. I like the idea of calling him "baby nate"

For a girl we arent sure (DH is POSITIVE baby will be a boy so he isnt much use discussing girl names)
I like
Olivia Blair
Anna Blair
Elise Blair
Emma Blair
Sumner Blair (LOVE the name Sumner, but made the mistake of naming a cat that in college. cant bring myself to name a baby after my deceased cat. )

I probably wont use Olivia or Emma because they seem so popular.

When my DH and I were dating, he told me that he really liked the name Mikaela, and I fell in love with it - never heard of it. After we were married, we moved to a TINY little town, and there are Mikaelas and Kaylas EVERYWHERE. And when we go to the "big city" for shopping, almost every time we hear someone yelling, "Mikaela... get back here" or "Mikaela... where are you?"

It really got to me because I've never been one to follow a trend. I went to a small school for elementary, and there were 5 girls in my 7th grade class... three were Jenny, Jenni, and me... Gen. Ever since then, I said I'd never do a trendy name.

But we really like Mikaela - and that's still our top choice for a girl (would have been ds's name).

And that's exactly why my list of names stays so short... I'll love a name and my husband knows someone that had that name that he didn't get along with - and vice versa.

Here's our update.

Derek William if it's a boy.

If it's a girl, (and I have a feeling it is) we're in trouble. Dh doesn't like either of my girl ideas--Margaret (Maggie) or, Viola Grace.

Anyone want to brainstorm with me? Viola was my grandmother's name, and if I can't use it as a first name, I WILL use it as a middle name. What goes with that?

Last time we were pregnant we said we would come up with names we liked and wait on a first name until we spent some time with the baby. Because some names just have a "look" that goes with them imo. We also decided to do 2 middle names and take one name from each family.

I was convinced I was having a girl and the big three names I liked were Chlöe, Zöe, and Olivia. Two days before my planned section (bad idea looking back) my sister called from Germany where she was au-pairing and said "I like the name Lauren." I liked Lauren as well and it was on our list but it was down around the middle. Hours after she was delivered and I finally got to hold her I looked at my little girl and announced her name was Lauren. Surprised dh quite a bit. Her full name is Lauren Elizabeth Linnea A__________-L_________ (last names).

For this baby we have only one girl name picked out: Nova Elin Marie. I'm originally from Nova Scotia and I lovelovelove the fact that her name will mean something and with ties to family being so important to me....

For a boy I like Lennon and Cohen. Dh nixed Cohen right away. We both like Vincent but my sister claims everyone will call him Vinny Bobarino (Welcome Back Kotter) I don't think so but it is one of those things that someone says and it sticks with you. We're looking at Lennon Joesph Ellis or Vincent Joesph Ellis. But then I might just make something up on the spot.

I really really want another girl so I can use the name Nova.

Ooo...I wanna play! IF I'm pg, I'm due 11/30 but I'm 13 dpo with a BFN but major sxs starting this afternoon so here's hoping for a nice surprise. We already started in on names, and have come up with anything K or J or celtic/gaelic as DS's name is a Gaelic derivitive and my name is celtic, and DP is Scottish so we'll see. I kinda like some of the D irish names....Donovan, etc. as well as Kane, Karson, Kadyn. For a girl though, we're pretty set on Koster Elizabeta (or Elizabetha depending)

Please don't mind me popping in here...

If I'm pregnant, I'll be due in December. But, nobody's over on that board yet, so I'm here.

My name list:

Girls
Alexandria
Kamali ("Molly" for short)
Maya Angelina (my favorite so far)
Ariana
Ayla Marketta (#2 fave)
Chandra
Lilliana
Mahalia
Michaela
Olivia
Solana

Boys
Aron (this will be the middle name)
Braeden
Caleb
Damien
Damon
True
Aiden
Donovan
Edan
Keagan
Joachin
Jericho


I've noticed most of the girls names I like end in an "A", and most of the boys names I like end in an "N". I have a feeling it's a girl.

8 might be enough

lol do any of you go throug this you think a name you've picked is slightly original only to find it on the "A" list of many people? I have two friends who named their kids completely unique names...Madison and Mackenzie until they actually took them to the playground didn't realise how popular they were..

I see Kane is very popular now, but I am choosing it as its special to me so......but would people just think I got all fru fru with the spelling?
Catháin vs Kane? Catháin is the original Gaelic, so I feel stronger to picking that than Kane/Keanne etc... or just combine them both Catháinick... lol so dh can get his 'ick'....

8 might be enough

That's what happened with us and Mikaela (I posted about this just a few above). We thought it was so orriginal - hadn't ever heard it (at least not a lot) until we moved here... and now it seems like every other girl is named that where we live. It's become a joke to us everytime we hear it now.

But we're still set on that name for a girl. There's nothing saying that she'll grow up here with all the others - and even if she does, she won't be going to school with them.

Then again, that's a lot of assumptions that this baby (or any future ones) will be a girl!

That's great!!!

Yeah, seriously, we love the name. I saw someone in another ddc talking about names... said she always wanted to name her child Ryan. Her cousin had a boy in December that they named Ryan, and there are a bunch of Brians in their family. So she said, "You know what... so what? He'll be MY Ryan." And I loved that attitude!

So, if Zy is a girl... she'll be OUR Mikaela
