I usually like to have 2 names chosen and then decide after the baby is born but it is so much harder since we don't know the sex this time. I have one name I really like for a girl, and if its a boy I have 2 that I am so-so on , but it is hard. DH keeps coming up with such dorky suggestions, its ridiculous.

That's what we always do. We have at least two names and pick after the baby is born. With this baby we have only agreed on one first name but we have a couple of runner-ups...hopefully we won't need them.

Last time, DH wanted to name our daughter Rapunzel. Okay, he didn't really WANT to, but he just kept suggesting it, anyway. Needless to say, this baby is unnamed, although we do have three names on the "maybe" list.

How about Raven? Lark? Piper (for sandpiper)? Myna? Robin?

No names here either. We have a few that we keep going back to, but definitely not decided. We named DD when she was 2 days old, and the name we chose for her just came out of nowhere... so maybe that will happen with this one too. I think we have middle names picked out- Harmony for a girl or Lyric for a boy.

No names here - no one is even trying to pick one! The last 2 boys didn't have a name for like a week. With our first kids - DH nixed everything I ever liked, we settled on something & then he changed up immediately after birth...so I've given up! I tell him/the kids "you better come up with a name, cause I'm not!"

They all tell me they want to wait til they get to see/know the baby. That's fine for a HB...but If I deliver at the hosp - I'm going to want out as quick as possible & baby won't have a name!

I like those names too! One just might happen to be my name and the other is on our list.

I'm huge into name meanings and love love love Sparrow and the symbolism for you! I am undecided, DH has a choice, but I am not loving it. I have come to accept that our baby boy might not have a name for a few days (can't wait much longer since he needs a birth certificate w/in 30 days in order to be added to the insurance).
