We haven't talked about names much this time around, but I'm pretty sure some of our favorites from last time will come up again. Right now we already have a James and an Isaac.

For Boys we liked:
Oliver
Jude
Julian
Phineas

For Girls we liked:
Adah
Harper
Jasper
Juniper
Ines

Things could change, though. This was our list last time around and we still have a ways to go before this one arrives in January!

Molly, mama to my 3 sweet boys.

I like Royal for a boy- but I hate Roy. DH wants an R name. For a little girl I like Susanna (sp?) And Susie for short- but again I hate Sue. I love Maximillian- maybe for a middle name.

Iowaorganic- mama to DD (1/5/06), DS1 (4/9/07), DS2 (1/22/09), DS3 (12/10/10), DD2 (7/6/12) and a new kid due in early 2014

I'm convinced this is a boy, and earlier this evening Madame Whomever concurred.

DH is pushing for Paul, but our last name begins with an L and I hate how it runs together.

He also likes Everett and Graham, both of which I like, but now he's saying only as middle names.

We like Abby, but not Abigail. I tried to talk him into Addison and call her Addie, he hated that.


Every name I like, DH poo-poos. Yet he will not just let me veto Paul and be done with it.

We had picked out Sadie, but when I found out it was 157 on the Social Security name file, it got nixed. I know some people can rise above it and name their child what they like regardless of how popular it is, but I am just not one of them!! So now we're back to a huge long list with few names that really jump out at us...

DD is Stella Christine. We've had our boy name picked out for over 7 years. It will be Ellery Duncan. If we do have a boy, I can yell at both kids at the same time and save a few syllables by just yelling "Stellery!".

We had such a hard time coming up with girls names last time. DH is so picky. He wants "uncommon but not contrived sounding" whatever that means! The middle name will definitely be Frances (my sister's middle name). Here's what I like so far:

Simone Frances *my favorite*
Eloise Frances
Charlotte Frances


DH doesn't hate them but thinks we can do better. I love Raven but given the rules of genetics, our baby will have blue eyes and I just can't imagine a blue-eyed Raven.

If our baby is a girl we are planning on Helena del Carmen, a tribute to both of our grandmothers. In Spanish she will probably be called Elena more often than not. If the baby is a boy we have not idea what we will name him!

We have a name picked out for either boy or girl. Every time we have names picked out they get more common in my area. I swear we start a trend
So if we have a boy I will tell the girls name and vice versa. I don't think we can find out til Sept though We are still working on middle names.

But I am starting to like Kiera vs. Brianna.

We've decided on Evelyn Lily for a girl. I have no feelings on male names, so I'm hoping that's a sign Tubbyhinkle is a girl!!!

Our names are very traditional, family-inspired names.

Boy: John Matthew (five generations of dh's paternal line are first name John with a different middle name. He has a huge family and there are no Matthews yet. We'd call him Matthew)

Girl: Mary Elizabeth or Audrey Elizabeth (My sister is Mary. DH's sister is Elizabeth, so he prefers Mary Elizabeth, calling her Elizabeth. I prefer Audrey Elizabeth, but love the idea of honoring my sister, so I could go either way. I want to see the baby before I decide, I think.)

What do you all think about Mathias for a boy?

Does it go With Anneliese, Kieran, and Owen, or just sound odd? I am having the worst time coming up with a boys name this time. My girls name sounds good with the others, I like Adela Claire. Addy or Della for a nickname works with my other kid's names. Ugh, I still have to find a good middle name as well.

Mama to 4 darlings. A ('03), O and K ('06), A ('09), and wife to M since 2002.

I know a Mathias and he is a darling!! Very cute name and I think it goes quite well with Anneliese, Kieran, and Owen.

We're starting to talk more about names.

We have middle names now (I think). My sister died last summer, so if we have a girl, her middle name will be Heather. If it's a boy, I think we'll use Headley/Hedley, which means a heather-filled meadow.

First names are still up in the air.

Girl:
Sophie
Isabella/Isabel/Ella

Boy:
No clue at all. Not even one on the list.

So far Ella is our favorite girl name. The trouble is I really want to use the middle name Elaine and I'm not so sure about

Ella Elaine

Now that I see it written, I'm sure I don't like them together. Darn.

My mother's given name was Jo. Just Jo. She was adopted at 13 years of age and had her name changed to Mary.

Ella Jo ?

I guess I like it better than Elaine.

Our top pick girl's name the last two times (and we had boys) was Jenna. How about this:

Jenna Elaine

I think I like that. I just like Ella better than Jenna at the moment.

What to do, what to do?

Mom to 5 amazing kids! (DS8, DS7, DD4, DD2 and DS0)

Eliana for a girl, which we are convinced we are having! (We find out Sept 4th if we are right!)

I also like Ariana. I truly love Ana, but DH nixed that due to knowing a few Anna's he didn't like. It is growing on him though!

No middle names, no boys names at all.

Hi Everyone!
I am currently preg with baby #6 due jan11th-13th.
All our children have names that start with "B r" and a middle name after a rock star/ musician. This baby was a surprise and I wanted to break the mold and go with a whole different letter of the alphabet and midde name concept, but Dh says "no way" lol.

So far we have a:

boy Briar James 9/22/98 (James for James Hettfield of Metallica)
girl Brieanna Nikki 11/24/99(Nikki fir Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue)
boy Braeden Ozzy 10/23/02 (as if that one isnt obvious lol)
boy Bruce Alexander 11/23/04(ok, he was backwards... Bruce is for Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden)
Brooklynne Alma 4/21/06 (she didnt get the middle name tradtion cuz my g-mother's name was Alma and she passed b4 seeing this baby)

We don't plan on finding out what this baby is until the birthday so we need to have a name ready for either one. We have chosen: Broderick (Dh's name is Derick) for a boy, with a middle name of Robert since our dear family friend has that name and was just diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes; and we are pretty much undecided about a girl, which is what always happens! Lol. If I have to stick with "br" I like Brittain or Bronwynn, but have always wanted an "akira" or a "lily".

Best of luck to you all. Picking out that perfect name is one of the best part of being a parent! Blessings to you all!
