If we have another boy, he'll be: Alexander Michael
That was decided a while ago.

A girl is more difficult. If my DS had been a girl, he'd have been Adriana Hope. But, neither of us like that name much now.
I really like:
Sierra
Kiera
Maya
Ava

I like Emily, and I think it's traditional enough that DH would go for it, but I had a cousin named Emily who died, and I feel like her sister has the right to use that name for a child, and I really don't.

I wouldn't mind naming my daughter after my grandmother, Mary, or my foster mom, Jane. But, naming a child Mary Jane just isn't done anymore.

DH wants to name a girl Alexandra. But, that's just too close to Alexander for me.

We'll just have to keep discussing it. We have a while to make up our minds!

We are thinking Ayla Rain or Ayla Rose for a girl, but NO CLUE on boy names, lol. My dh keeps coming up w/things like Hercules Xavier, and I just have to give him 'that look'. Weirdo.

We want a *mighty* name for a boy, but not too weird. My ds's name is Christofer Wolfgang, my youngest dd is Hanah Starr, and oldest dd is Breena Shey. We like slightly traditional, but also slightly unusual names, lol. I want an earthy name for this baby.

We still have Caroline Elizabeth that we didn't use on ds...and for a boy, ds is Ben so we thought we'd name the second boy Joey...like Ben and Joey (not Ben and Jerry). So Joseph something - we have not settled on a second name yet, in part because DH had to blab to his family what they were and his mom suggested DH's middle name "Patrick" which I had already thought of, but I am not letting my MIL name my kids! So, we have eight months to come up with a middle name for Joseph. It was a five minute conversation when I was pg with Ben (Benjamin Thomas) - no such luck this time.

Tana, wife to Steve (5/02), mom to Ben (7/03), Joey (10/06) and Caroline (9/09)

I'm in England, near the Welsh border, so I'm lucky in that I get to hear a lot of interesting Welsh, Gaelic and Celtic names. I love names with a history, and a great meaning behind them, so my list has names from many different cultures. It will be SO hard to decide.

DD would have been Asher William if she'd been a boy, so we may go with that. (I have this idea that this baby will be a boy.) Asher was a son of Jacob (my DH's name) and means "happy." William is my grandfather's name.

Just popping in from October to check out baby names (I'm obsessed with baby names!)

Laurie, our second son is called Declan It's a lovely name! However, both Declans I know can be a real handful (my friend has a 6yr old Declan). We've decided it must be the name

Congratulations to all the newly pregnant mamas! I must go do some laundry while I have some energy and don't feel nauseous...

k i dont even know if i can join this club yet, cause we dtd on the 13th 15th and18th O'd (early!!!) on the 19th and DTD on the 19th and 21st, figuring might as well, we already have a HUGE chance, why not, if our son wants to be here that badly, let him come.

we have two little boys names picked out but i KNOW its either Rupert Finnegan McBride A(lastname)
or Riley Finnegan McBride A(lastname) he feels like my lil Finn baby.

our second boys name we have picked is Allastaire (not sure on the spelling of that one yet) Thorin McBride A(lastname)

Morgan my husband has two middle names, Thane and McBride(for his clan) so we decided all of our children would have two middle names, and our sons would pass on the McBride name.

IF this baby happens to be a girl, its Maddigan Zinnia Thane A(lastname)
Addy's full name is Adelaine Dahlia Lee A(lastname) Dahlias and Zinnias are my two favorite flowers, and Lee is my moms middle name. so a flower middle name, and a second middle name in honor of a family member. thats our lil girl middle name picking method.

but seeing as a little boy spirit keeps hanging out with me, and Addy has been calling him Finn, and Finney, i am like 90% its a boy.
and i am not even 1% possitive i am pregnant yet.
i just have a HUGE hunch.
i wasnt "supposed" to ovulate till the 23rd, so we thought we were playing it safe dtd early, then BAM ovulation on the 19th.
so IF i am pregnant, i am "due" nov 14th.

OK wimmin......so soon after my BFP, my partner and I are set on Sara Pearce C________ (3 syllable last name). I like Joe (Joseph or Jonas) for a boy - simple, not terribly common now as maybe 5 years ago, and cool. Of course, this could change..............

Kira and Serena were the two names we were considering for DD. We went with Kira, so if this one turns out to be a girl (I do suspect a boy) we may very well go with Serena. I think maybe not though, just because Kira did turn out to be a very, very easy to care for baby and toddler. I doubt another girl would turn out to be nearly as "serene," and I'd probably feel the name didn't fit.

If we have a boy, he'll be John Henry S(last name), probably nicknamed Jack. DH is very seriously set on this (it's a family name), so that's settled.

A girl name will be debated right up to the end. DD is Laura Grace S(last name), and Laura wasn't even on the list, but when I saw her, that was her name! We considered a lot of names, and for a long time the front-runner was Anna. So maybe this one will be an Anna. I *love* the name Willa, but DH nixed it last time.

I'm a fan of simple old-school names, and names that reflect our families' histories. I'm sure we'll be debating this for, oh, the next 9 months or so!

Mama to DD : (7/23/03) & DS : (10/27/06) married to DH 7/20/01
and yet 90% more mainstream than the rest of MDC

Congrats! I'm not pregnant, but I'm O'ing and feeling the baby fever.....

Anyway, we almost named my daughter Ayla Rain. Right up to the minute she was born, I thought that would be her name. She was born with beautiful light red hair though and she was just glowing, so she ended up being Ayla Star instead. Plus, the more I thought about it, Ayla Rain reminded me of Lorraine, for some reason. I'm a weirdo.

I just thought that was funny. I haven't seen too many Ayla babies yet! You already used the name Starr. My husband's name is Kristopher. I think that we're cosmic twins or something.

Wishing you a H&H 9 months.

I have an ever growing list of names I'd like to use, some of which are:
Girls- Willa, Willow, Madalyn, Macie, Kimberlyn, Scotlyn, Kyrin, Kylen, Kylie, Kyla, Kyra, Kira, Abagail, Brenna, Rebeka, Irelyn
Boys- Kendrick, Colin, Coulier, Dannen, Brennen, Davis
My top 3 are:
Girls:
Kenya Elise (I'll most likely use this)
Madalyn Rose
Kyren Noel
Irelyn Rose (My BBF said she would call DD "Wild Irish Rose"
Boys:
Kayden Jude (I'll most likely use this)
Colin Patric
Brennen Jace
Kendrick Augustas
(I say MY current choices because hubby is not allowed to help, his choice for a boy was Gunner and for a girl was Bessa : ) And the reason I chose them is because noone I know is named that/has kids named that. There is a movie out with a the lead caracter named Kenya, but I'm praying it doesn't catch on....

For a boy I'm pretty sure it'll be:

Ian Spencer Hall P. (not sure about Hall, it's a family name)

For a girl I really like:

Ilana

That's as far as I've gotten w/ a girl name. I would really like to have maybe Ellen in there for her 2nd middle name (it's my grandma's middle name and I just LOVE her to pieces, lol).

Jennifer, LPN and nursing student, Doula, CPST, and VBAC mama x3 to

I'm in love with "Maggie" (Margaret) but I'm doubtful I'll get dh to agree. :

For a boy, it's between Benjamin Derek and Derek William.

We've always had a harder time with girl names than with boy names.

I am set on using Viola for the girl though--probably as a middle name because dh thinks it's too old fashioned, but I'm okay with that.

We went through babynames.com the other night, which has, like 30 or 40 thousand names and couldn't find a girl's name we both agreed on! Good thing we have time, huh?

We like family names and both DD and DS are named from someone on my side of the family so we are determined to use DH's side.

Right now we have

Jackson Michael (DH is Michael and we LOVE Jackson), this will probably not happen though if you can guess why.:

For a girl we like
Avery Joan
Lily Joan
Cote Joan (sounds like Kody)

Hello!
Just found out that we are expecting #3. BIG surprise, apparently I am one of 2% who can get pregnant on the pill . Our daughter is Vivian Leah and our son is Maxwell Alexander.

Little surprise will probably be a girl so we are thinking:
Marley Rose or Ruby Rose

and for boys:

Marley or Xavier no word yet on the middle name. Hubby is Jewish so we will have to find a deceased relative. Rose is for a cousin Rosalind.

Okay, so today I'm thinking that I'm having twin boys again (how's that for pessimism?), and if that happens, we will name them Zeben Alexander and Silas Rane. We don't have any girl ideas at all, and I don't think that's a very good sign. . . (it would be really nice to have a girl, but I'm just not feeling it).

Are you guys planning to name the baby as soon as you find out gender (if you're finding out before birth), or wait until the baby's born and pick what seems to fit the baby best? Last time we named our boys minutes after the u/s, and I think we'll probably do the same thing this time too, although if we ARE having twin boys again, we may wait until the birth to see which one is which.
