We had ours picked SO early! We aren't finding out the gender so we have two;

Josephine or

Roarke (sounds like, 'Cork'. It's Gaelic and my brothers name)

Newly Single-Mama. Raising homebirth baby, Josephine, July '09.

I'm rebuilding mine since it had been very heavy on the girl names. I haven't gone over it with my DPs, yet. I have a link in my signature if you want to see.

Ugh... I am not having anything *pop out* like with my last two. For a girl I love Zoe, and DH loves Sakura (i like it too) but neither of them feel right. For a boy, we both like Josiah okay, and i looove Ezra, but he doesn't... I really am not sure yet. We had names picked out before the gender U/S with our others, so (even though we are not finding out this time) it is wierd to be more than half way through, and not realy be sure on names yet

Jackie and Rafael (4/15/04)
DS (4/25/05) my unschooled airbending pokemon wizard 
DD (10/05/06) my spirited pixie, who weaned at 3 yrs 10 months
DD (7/27/09) my UC water baby - I mean toddler!

DS (2/21/12) UC #2! My littlest love

Alright Mamas, don't rat me out, 'cause we've refused to tell anyone our names so far:

Beatrix for a girl
Gwydion if its a boy

Middle names are still up in the air.

If this one would have been a girl, she would have been a Beatrix! I think that DH wanted to TTC partially in case it was a girl so we could call her Beatrix.

But alas, it is a boy, so he will be Xavier.

Well I know what I want to name this little girl. DH isn't in love with the name I want. . but then only comes up with "joke" names (like Bob). So I figure I'll just end up getting my way unless he has some actual input.

Be, happy momma to Liberty (12-31-02), Henry (3-17-07) and Prudence (7-02-09)

I've been saving these 2 names for 4 years (our youngest is almost 4). I like Lydia Jane and Caleb Jack. I thought my dh liked them, too (he did 4 years ago), but now he's waffling. So we still have to discuss it.

We have our boy name picked out (i'm not sharing b/c I love it too much!), but we are unsure on the girl name. Nothing feels right. We like names like Lillian, Helena, Marian, Aster. None of them feels right for this babe, though. Maybe it is a boy, or we just haven't found the right name yet. If it is a girl she might not have a name for a few days!

That is so funny, Amberoxy - we have decided on the name Annika! Very similar. Annika Caroline will be her name (Caroline is DH's favorite grandmother's name.)

handzfull: I LOVE the names you picked! I always wanted to have a baby named Jack, but it sounds too choppy with our one syllable last name. Oh well!

I'm too excited to mind sharing with people. My mother has tried to warn me that I might change my mind about the name at the last minute - it happened to a friend of hers (and she had already told everybody the name she had picked, so they bought her stuff with that name on it!) I am pretty firm on Annika though. Anybody else read the Pippi Longstocking books as a child?

My husband likes Kelsey but it reminds me of Kelsey Grammar in Frasier! No way!

I am hoping for Stella or Lucy with the middle name Rose. Both are family names (Jewish tradition).

You mamas really come up with some beautiful and uniques names! I have to say I am very impressed. Maybe I need to research this a little bit more...

my very best friend in the world named her baby Jackson Daniel (get it Jack Daniels?) The Jack was after the favorite grandpa. It totally fits because the baby's dad is a HUGE connoisseur of liquor.

We are pretty sure she will be named Penelope Ann. Ann after my grandmother. The only problem I am having with it, is I really dislike Penny and my DH thinks there is no way around people calling her than when she is young. I am toying with the nn Poppy, but ideally I like Penelope and don't want it shortened.

We know we are having a boy, and his name will be Mica.

We haven't decided on a middle name yet, but we are considering Rayne.

Our 2 year old son's name is Rowan and I think that Mica and Rowan sound great together! Rowan is a tree and Mica is a mineral so they are both earth inspired names

Henry Edwin (both family names of loved ones who died)

or

Hazel Rhiannon

And yes we are going with all H first names. My husband came from a family where they were all named with K and I came from a family where we were all named with A..... so we HAD to keep that up I know some people hate that but we think it is kind of cool that both of us come from families that did it

Mika is my OB's name (but she's a woman) and Rowan is definitely being considered for one of our boys. It's one of few names that Jeromy & I actually both love.

We've had our girl name saved for about 5 years now - Amar Marie.

The boy name is trickier, I've had my heart set on Aidan since for about 15 years but DH doesn't like it much. Our compromise will probably be Ethan Edward.

Both middle names are in honor of DH's grandparents.

We're having a horrible time with this. I think we're gonna give up and go with Girldemort.

Top options as of now; subject to change by the hour. BY ALL MEANS feel free to comment:

Alexandra
Alison
Amity
Arden
Ariel
Aria
Ariana
Arwen
Giselle
Honor
Juliet
Lauren

ETA A boy would have been Odin or Eli, with the same middle name we're using for our little girl.


Last name and middle name (a family last name) start with A, so I'm not sure about the names above that also end with A. They don't flow very well.

I love Penelope! You might be able to keep her nickname free. I have a cousin named Jonathan and no one ever called him, "john". His mom loved the name Jonathan and insisted that that was his name. Good Luck!

We always wait, though I've been throwing out names for weeks and getting shot down, whatever.

angelika13 - I think that it's actually very common to use whole names these days. I have several friends who never use nicknames, one has a James, another Anthony, I have an Elias who never goes by Eli, there are plenty more I can't remember I'm sure.

We're naming our little girl Camden Faith. I think Camden goes nicely with Cade (our son's name)!

I'm so glad that some of you are using names that I love but that DH vetoed!!! Great choices, Mamas!

Our girl's name is: Lavender Gayle
Our boy's name is: Corban Guy

The boy's name has stayed the same since before our first DD was born. DH and I cannot decide on boys name at all! So it's a good thing we've had girls so far, or we'd be out of luck. The truth is that I don't adore the name Corban anymore, but I couldn't come up with an alternative so that's what it's going to be. I could name about a dozen girls, and I love love love the name Lavender, so I almost hope this is another girl just for the name!!!

My ds is Camden. I think it sounds great for a girl, too. We've gotten so many compliments on his name over the years.

We have mostly decided on the first name Noah for our sun. My only possible issue with it is that it sort of rhymes with my dds' names: Ayla and Maija (pronounced Maya). I love the middle name Sage but dh doesn't like it so we're exploring other options.
