We are naming this one Aidan Anthony-Andrew (our other three sons have two middle names too). The middle names are family names and first name just one we enjoy. If this 4th son turns out to be a first daughter she will be Isabella Danielle.

We are thinking Ezekiel Joshua Jonas ? We have to come up with 4 names but I only have 3 so far. Any suggestions, I try to make it flow. I have a short last name that starts with R.

Ezekiel Joshua Jonas Michael Rand
Ezekial Joshua Jonas Samual Rand
Ezekial Joshua Jonas Thomas Rand

I think two-syllable would be good.

We have two first names we really like and keep switching back and forth which is the favorite. So, the littlest boy will either be Miles Elliott or Jareth Elliott. (Miles is after no one, and Jareth is, of course, after the Goblin King. *g*)
I love Jareth. Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies ever! I hope you go with this one.

Our little girl will be Amelie. We haven't picked out a middle name yet.
Cindy Lou: Amelie is just utterly gorgeous!

Our baby is Jasper Deven B*******.
Last name is a 3 syllable English name.
Both names are ones we really love and not named for anyone.
Jasper means "gift bearer" in Persian and to us sounds both old fashioned Victorian and yet Southern and modern at the same time. Jasper the gemstone is also the mystical birthstone for the month of October.
Deven is Sanskrit for "god-like".
We also chose names for good initials...JB and JD...he can go by.

Happily married with two tots (babyboy.gif J 10/18/08) & (babygirl.gif T 5/03/10)

Alexander Ray or Alexandra Rae (gender is a surprise). Alexander is DH's deceased grandfather's middle name and Ray is my deceased grandfather's middle name, my uncle's middle name, my cousin's middle name, and my middle name.

Our DS who is expected the last week of October will be called Harrison Glenn after both his grandpa's as per dh's family tradition. It was what we were going to name dd if she had been a boy (we didn't find out with her) and is the ONLY name dh and I can even remotely agree upon (and this includes all non-family names....

We don't like to pick a "for sure" name out until the baby is born, but a few we will probably pick from are...

Everett
Oliver
Emerson

We don't do middle names in our family, so that'd be it! Our other little boy's name is Ethan. We weren't "trying" to come up with another E name, we just happen to like them I guess!

We thought we were going with a name for sure, but it turns out hubby wasn't 100% on board. We wanted a good Swedish name. So, what we have tentatively is

Oskar Bernt O*****

Oskar is my MIL's grandfather's name. Bernt is Swedish for Bernard - my great-grandfather's, grandfather's, father's and brother's middle name.

Don't mind criticism. If it is untrue, disregard it; if unfair, keep from irritation; if it is ignorant, smile; if it is justified it is not criticism, learn from it.

I think we've finally decided (though we of course reserve the right to change our minds *g*) that this little boy will be Miles Elliott. If we have another boy, we have decided already that he will be Jareth Alexander. We both love Jareth, but I have been stuck on Elliott since we found out this little guy was in fact a guy, and we like Miles better paired with that.

It's so exciting to finally have a decision made, especially since we have been debating about names since we found out I was pg!

We don't really have a set list.

For boys we're throwing around Jasper, Oliver and August, for a girl Isabella (but it's way too popular now), Evangeline, Eliana, or Gisele.

We have been thinking about Harper John since I was about 12 weeks along. Although we haven't absolutely decided, we can't come up with ( or agree on) anything else. John is of course after his dad and we just like the name Harper. We like the singer Ben Harper so that is where we came up with the name.
On the off chance that I have a girl I like Eden Deniza. Deniza was my great-grandmas name and I have never heard anyone else named that.

I was watching the movie things we lost in the fire with Halle Barry last night and the little girls name was Harper. I added it to my girl list. You could always use Harper Eden Deniza or Eden Harper Deniza....

Warning: rant ahead. I think I'm finally starting to get hormonal.

I am starting to get frustrated with this whole name thing. Dawned on me the other day that the names we're actively debating are the ones the husbandperson has suggested. He's shot down EVERY SINGLE NAME I've suggested bar Eleanor, and he's not even sure about that. I'm the one who's you know, actually growing the child, shouldn't my suggestions get some consideration too? :

Well no, that's not quite fair. We'll be giving a boy my dad's first name as a middle name, and the husbandperson did want to avoid family names. I think the only reason he's agreed is because my dad doesn't actually go by his first name. And because I've had my heart set on doing that since long before I met him. And because he doesn't really care about middle names. Otherwise, I'm sure he'd say no to it too.

My sisters are Joelynn and Susan, and my mom's name is Jane. I may not capitalize the "S", but I haven't decided. I figure we can call her Josie for short, but I've been referring to her as JJ for awhile now...

My step-father had the perfect comeback to people who didn't like the name I picked (Malcolm David). Advise the husbandperson and any other family who want to make suggestions or want to rip on the names you like that if they were to put 100 grand in a trust fund for said child, and you'll name the baby whatever they want.

Actually, we got Malcolm because hubby couldn't come up with anything better for a week after I said it was what I liked.

aw, thanks! I'm still going to pronounce it like you would "Jocelyn", I'm just customizing the spelling! I think my sister Sue is going to end up catching the baby for me, she's so excited!
