You are all way ahead of us! I'm still obsessing over loooong lists and making tentative suggestions to DH... who then immediately exercises veto power.

We'll get there by July. If we find out the gender on Thursday, maybe that will help, too.

Benjamin is one of my favorites and would be near the top of my list, but it doesn't really work well with our last name.

My girl will be Allison Eliza (last name is like Rose.)
The boy name we loved was Ethan so we'll definitely use it in the future if we get the opportunity!

Scarlett Colleen Rene *lastname* if it's a girl (both middles are family, one to honor DH's mom who passed from breast cancer and Rene is mine and my mom's middle...couldn't choose one so we decided to go with both!)

Dane Riley or Dane Hunter if it's a boy...haven't decided on the middle yet.

Lots of beautiful names here!

William Paul for a boy (after the two grandpas) - though we can't agree on a nickname.

Not so sure for a girl. We know we are using Zea (zee) as the middle name - after my husband's grandmum. The names we love are Ruby, Zinnia (my favorite, and our 4 yr old Violet thought it up!), Molly, Eleanor.

My 4 yr old prefers Little Ick and Unicorn.

It is definitely my fave from our list. I was so excited when Violet suggested it, especially after her other ideas. When we have told people, at first they think it sounds funny with the two Z names, but after a few minutes they adore it. Not that it really matters, but its just funny.

I have no idea what we want for a name.
We've got Lyra stuck in our head for a girl though...and yes it's from the Golden Compass book. We are nerds. LOL

I'm totally stumped for boys names, so we're hoping to find out at our 20 wk u/s that its a girl HAHA

I think we're going to use DH's great-grandma's name as a middle name for a girl, it's Marguerite.

I think Lyra is pretty, EvansMomma. I like Lyric too.

For us I think it's Ekaterina Antonina for a girl (but we'll call her Katya) and either Sergei or Zion for a boy.

We just found out it's a boy. So, Abigail Rose is out and Nathaniel (or Nathan) James is in! Other names I love from this list are Margueritte, Ethan and Zinnia. Anyone willing to share their older kids names: mine are Chani (Chawnee) Amber and Seth Ronald (middle in honor of my dad).

One name that crops up a few times in the family tree is "Gideon," which I like but I'm not sure about it with our last name, and I'm also not sure about nicknames. Has anyone known a Gideon -- and did he have a nickname? The only Gideon I ever knew didn't have a nickname AFAIK.

I need a "B" girl name and I am at a loss!

Everyone in the fam starts with a B which wasn't my plan, in fact if my first had been a girl, he woulda been Grace but he was a boy and we named him Brodin (grandma's maided name) and he became Brody and then us as a 3some because Bob/Bo/Bro so when the next one came, I was thinking what if we only end up with 2 and it is like Bob/Bo/Bro & Chuck (or something totally different) and then we loved Blaise anyway so we went with that and now we are stuck in the B thing. And I just can't find a girl name that is talking to me! Any ideas? The ones that I am toying with are

Bella (too popular??)
Bree (makes ya think of cheese??)
Bria or Brea (again, cheesey)
Becka, Beka (how do you spell this name - and I dunno, it is just ok)
Britt (it is ok, but is it dorky that my other baby girl is Brynn?)
Belle (too Lion King??)


whatcha love or hate? I can take it! Any other ideas would be welcome!

ETA: oops, I don't mean lion king for Belle I mean Beauty and the Beast. Not that it is necessarily ust that that is what it makes me think of

I just somehow stumbled over here and I'm not even pregnant. () But I knew a girl named Becca. Beautiful name. Belle isn't too Lion King! At least not to me...

Bo, I had a good friend named Bekka in high school, I loved the way her name was spelled! I thought it was so neat and different.

B is a hard one, I couldn't think of any off the top of my head! Well actually, I thought of Brynn...then I looked at your siggy (and re-read your post) and realized you have one of those!

Another B name that I came across randomly was Blair.

We don't even bother starting with the name game until we know the gender.

Our girl name is Astrid (we've got 2 boys, so we've never gotten the chance to use it). As for boy names, we'll probably be going back and forth until the baby is born.

SAHM to 3 boys ages 10, 7, and 3.
