Carolyn Barbara. Barbara is both DH's and my mom's first name.

We are actually debating between using Carrie or Callie as a nickname, so of course I love the name Calli

Wow, what a great name! I love it.

Oh - and I'm partial to using Carrie as a nickname, lol!

Our little girl will be Nora Caitlyn.

...but keep it a secret, we haven't told anyone IRL and won't until after she is here!

This little girl will be Kellianne Jenae.

FIL and BIL are both Kelly, so we won't be calling her Kelly. And Jenae is a combination of my names... but my mom and sister both have Renae as a middle name, which is where "Lenae" came from. So, this is a mixture of mixed names.

My babe is going to be Iris. Still going back and forth on her middle name. We've at least narrowed it down to a few we like. Chances are we won't actually pick her middle name until she's here.

Wow- a lot of names named after family! Am I the only one here who is just naming because we like the name?

Not that there's anything wrong with naming after someone of course...It's cool- our first was named after my FIL but anyway, just wondering.

Our baby will be named Calla Sophia.

There's a tiny chance I'll change my mind about the middle name, but she's definitely Calla.

Moira Elizabeth for a girl or Conley Paul for a boy. Middle names are after family members.

Wow, we have a lot in common... we were married about a month apart, both have two cats, and are expecting little girls in Oct! I also love the name Nora, but can never use it because my sister's dog is named Nora. I also love Caitlyn, but again could never use it because DH's cousin just had a Caitlyn in January.

Well, this baby might have a family middle name, but none of our other kids will. Um, nobody in our family has names we like

I actually picked Kellianne because I loved the name... my concern was actually that FIL and BIL were both Kelly. Don't burst their bubble, but she's not being named after them. LOL I've always loved Jenae and said I'd name my daughter that, but as I've gotten older, I don't love it as much for a first name, so middle name it is.

I am NOT expecting, but if I were, we'd name a girl Winifred Elizabeth (and call her Freddie) and we'd name a boy Zebediah Frank (and call him Zebbie).

Winifred *is" a family name, but the main thing is that we love names that are old fashioned but a little unusual and start with late in the alphabet letters, like VWXYZ,

we have a list of girl names (tayen, lilith, karis, meadow, indigo...and a few others) but are waiting to see the possible her, before we name her. her middle name may well be jill after my mum; dd's middle name is edith after my grandmother.

if beaker is a he, i'm pretty sure his name will be wolf. we still need to find a first name, because dh wont allow one of my 'hippy' names to a be his first name

all this is subject to change at any given moment though

If LO is a boy, he'll be Milo Wallace.

If LO is a girl, she'll be either Dinah Grace, or Dinah Steffy.

Steffy is my grandmother's middle name, and it was HER mother's maiden name.

We just REALLY like Milo Wallace!

No family connection with the name Chris and I chose - we just genuinely liked the name. I think we narrowed it down from a few we had liked from a book, actually. It fits her perfectly, though!

I think we're going with Dexter for a first name, Dex for short. No middle name yet, although I'm lobbying for Reid or Rhys. I can't think of anything else I like with Dexter.

Oh yes with our names, they are after family too.

Jasce Edward Michael....Edward after my dad and Michael after DH's dad.

Calli Elizabeth.....Elizabeth is my mother's first name even though she goes by her middle name which is Joanne.

no family names here...one of our rules is not family names...I was named after my mother and grandmother and dh was named after his uncle and cousin...we both we wished we had original names...so our kids get names we like. No other reason for naming them what we do other then loving the name.

No, you're not alone - our daughter's name is Bridget Kenna. While the Kenna part is a family name, we picked Bridget just because we like it

This babe's first name is all chosen: Thierry Djimon (or Thierrey Djimon, I can't decide which I like better) and we are still out on a middle name. DH wanted Vidal after his grandfather but realized after saything the whole name "Thierry Djimon Vidal" that it doesn't go well together. I really like the name Kikehonee but I haven't convinced DH yet...
