Saw this on another DDC...
it's fun to see all the names and how different they are, soooo-
As of today, we are naming our girls:
Emilia Anne and
Julienne Mary-

don't take that to the bank though

If you care to share, what will your LO be named??

sarah, mama to e & j 8/08, and big brother 8/06

I wish we had at least a few names picked out...but we dont have anything. DP wants to wait to see what the sex of the baby is first. We havent found out...then just looking at baby to get an idea of what would fit.

If it's a girl, Sadie Ella (Ella is my paternal grandmother's name). Our backup name in case that doesn't seem to fit her is Helena Jessamine (maternal great-grandmother's name).

Boys are trickier, we haven't decided. I came up with a few new ones last weekend though so will run them by DH when he is back from his trip today. Hopefully we'll decide soon, it's driving me nuts to not have it narrowed down to at least two!

We had chosen to use Emilia when I was pg with my boys. I love that name! But early in my pg I had a dream that I gave birth to a baby girl and the other names we'd chosen didn't fit, and I said "her name is Sunlight!"

But... this time around I think we are settled on:

Kira Eileen (although I prefer Kira Elena... dh doesn't like the -a ending on both names)... Kira is Persian for "sun" and Eileen and Elena are both versions of Helen, which means "light"

Teagan Bryant (pronounced Tay-gun)... Teagan is Celtic for "little poet" and Bryant means "strength with virtue and honor"... although the virtue and honor part was just in one baby name book, so I think that may be kind of made up.

No idea. I have a list of potential names, but I refuse to name this LO before she arrives. Last time we did that and the name didn't fit, but DH refused to change it b/c we had agreed on it, so she's stuck with a name that isn't hers. I won't go through with that again.

My husband just came up with "Clementine" when reading one of the baby name books, which I actually love, and her middle name will be Jane after my mother. So if it's a girl it will be Clementine Jane, unless Beatrix Pearl fits her better.

For a boy we are torn between Angus James and Jasper James

I still may change my mind when we see him/her, but so far we have Audrey Esther for a girl, Levi Benjamin for a boy.

GREAT names. This little one with be Silas Gerard. Sure hope it fits him b/c I've monogrammed things and we've had it picked out since before he was conceived. At this point, changing his name would feel like changing the name of one of my other children .

Lucy Adele
Adele was DH's Great Grandmother's name. With DD we picked out her name as soon as we knew she was a she and it fits her perfectly. Hoping the same thing happens this time, but DH and I are both flexible if it doesn't!

We're thinking Zara Olivia if it's a girl. We're not loving any of the boy names we have. Zachary William is our leading candidate, though. I'm secretly hoping that dh changes his mind about the name I love, Xavier. Hopefully when baby shows up it'll be clear what his name should be if it's a boy.

99.9% sure she's going to be Poppy Marie. We're not monogramming yet....she'll probably be unnamed little baby girl for the first twelve to twenty four hours of her life while we get to know her.

This poor boy doesn't have a name. We've been trying to find one so hard but *nothing* seems to fit. I wish the name would just pop up like it did for our daughter... out of the blue we came up with Athena and it fits her perfectly. Now this kiddo is due soon and we don't even have a name.

Her first name will be Isabella (I have three aunts named Isabelle), but we haven't picked a middle name yet. Maybe Anne.

We have a couple options picked out for girl and boy since we don't know what we are having. These are subject to change between now and when baby arrives, or if we meet the babe and feel that these don't fit him/her.

Girl
Claren (Suzanne or...?)
Treya (Suzanne or Eileen)


Boy
Breton
Adley

Middle name for a boy is pretty undecided.

I have no idea. She's comming in three weeks, and we agree for about 15 minutes on a name, and then one of us decides its 'not right'.

We both have names we really really want, but neither of us can bend to the other, so we can't find names we both love compared to the 'one single name' each of us loves. Its frustrating.

Last time I checked (3 weeks ago) it was Amaya Persephone, but I know he doesn't love it so I'm hesitant to use it. We're named out. Nothing sounds good anymore. We shall have a nameless baby forever.

Both my boys were named before they were born and their names always felt "right" and fit them at birth. Well I can't seem to find the "right" boy name this time. Actually I regularly will be thinking of the baby and see a girl. The u/s did say boy, but sometimes I wonder, maybe...and that's why I can't come up with a boy name. I'm scared of him being born and still not feeling good about a name.

I'm that person that has names picked out well before the baby is actually concieved, lol. This little boy will be Ezra Locke.

If he has girl parts instead (although we're pretty certain he's male!) she'll be Romy Calliope.
