Anybody care to share their name possibilities?

We are thinking Georgia for a girl, and Harris, Samuel or Walker for a boy.

Jake for a boy (I told DH it's non-negotiable since I regretted not naming DS Jake). We have more options for girl names. Ellison was our girl name last time. We are also considering Mary after a beloved grandmother. I like Marley but there's that dog movie coming out with that name.

My DD's name is Liberty (we love the name but feel it's bitten us on occasion) so if she has a sister her name will be Prudence (Prudence Olivia, and we'll call her Poppy).

If we were to have another boy his name would be Oliver, middle name to be discussed.

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

I'm Indian, so I want Indian names. I have lots of girl name ideas (I love Lalitha, Yamini, and Sitara) but no boys' names have stuck out. My cousin named her son Amith and I liked that, but now it's taken!

So far we've come up with Molly Beatrice for a girl and Finnegan Tate for a boy. DD was almost Molly but we couldn't come up with a middle name. Molly B. sounds so flipping cute!

I see some really great names in here.

For a boy, on our list is Rowan Woods, Redding, Jasper.
For a girl, we have Ruby, Story and possibly Dorothy Kate as middle names. (Dorothy was both of my grandmothers' first name & they both passed away in the last year.)

I love the name Georgia for a girl!! We are considering Samuel for a boy, as well. Our girl names are: Kateri, Sage, Molly and Glory. Dh REALLY loves Glory (his grandmother is Gloria) and I'm coming around to it now.

I have our girl name picked out: Veronica and her nn will be Vera.

We have thought of 2 middle names:

Veronica Soleil (my favorite, pron: So-Lay)
Veronica Naomi (DH's favorite)

Boys names: There are 4 that I like;

Oliver
Griffin
Dorian
Evander

I was pretty set on Oliver before I got PG, but it doesn't really feel right any more.

If it is a boy, Xavier. Girl, Beatrix. The middle name for either will be my father's last name, unless we change our minds.

DH, DD, and I all have double letters in our name, so for a boy we are thinking Isaac or Finnegan (or Finnley) shortened to Finn. We like Finnegan Quinn, or Isaac James. And for a girl: Holly. That is as far as we have gotten...

Oliver is on our boy list too! Girl names are harder for me, so I am waiting a little farther into this pregnancy to figure those out.

some of my favorite names are the girls' names in sound of music:

brigitta
liesl
louisa

dh will never go for anything like that though so we shall see!

We have a few names...we'll get it nailed down sooner or later. We do know that we aren't telling our parents any names until our little one is here and named. I don;'t want the suggestions or the comments.

For a girl: I have been obsessed lately w/ the name Sage.

For a boy: I've always wanted Zion. Now DH thinks its ok, but isn't completely sold on it yet. Lately, we've both been really digging the name Phoenix.

Songbird- I think many of the Indian names are so beautiful. I cared for a little girl named Sahana, and I still *love* that name.

Yeah, my husband is obsessed with looking up little boy names online after I've gone to sleep. He's so cute. Boys name are so much harder for us to agree on!

For a girl we have (but this could DEFINITELY change) Amelia Soleil and for a boy our current 2 that we both like are Asher and Alton (like the meaning of Asher more) with Michael (my FIL) as the middle name.

Not sure what it is with us an names that start with an "a" this time. Our 21 month old's name is Roxanne Elise. We cal her Roxie

Oooh... that's a great name. It has musical connotations, too, which would be cute since I'm a musician. I agree about boys names. I think it's so much harder to be creative with them.

I like Phoenix a lot, but it sounds bad with the LN, so we can't use it.

Unfortunately, dh has the urge to name a boy after him. I hate that male tendency to have to claim things with a name. He had a fit when I thought about keeping my own last name after we were married. I think it's sh***y to not give a child their own name. We honestly haven't really talked much about names yet. I just don't want to get into that argument yet. Yes- the hormones have kicked in, and I can't stand dh right now.

We're really hoping for a boy this time to make it even but we'll be happy with a healthy baby.

girls:
Scarlet


boys:
maximillian
Cyrus
Phoenix

That's all I've got so far and since Dh doesn't know yet he'll probably say no to each name.

Stephanie + Dh= Super blessed parents to 1 ds, and 4 dds!

Hahaha... mine is making me extra happy right now. When I fall asleep by 9:30 every night (vs 3 or 4am before), he gets all of the kids to bed by himself. SO nice right now! I love him.

But trust me... there are times when I'd rather he just stay at work for days. LOL
