My BF was going to do Charlotte for a girl and she was so certain she was having a girl that she told her DH that he could pick the name for the boy. Guess what? They are having a George Bailey. I love it, though, it's cute and I think once the shock of not having a girl, she's warmed up to the name. I know my girl name but my boy name is up in the air, but if I've learned anything, I'm going to have a say in it!

DD: 8/10

my husband won't discuss till way later, but I really want to use the names Lily Sarah / Jared Samuel. I think he'll go for the middle names but not the first names!

In thinking of naming after people, the S name is after my grandmother, so any suggestions are welcome, and the J name is after my uncle and I don't have a girl J name or really any other boy names picked out, so I'd love suggestions for those too! I like discussing names!

Dara Mommy to Gabbie (4/05) , Zachary (6/07) , and Simon (8/10)

So far we have an Eleanor Jean and an Alexander James.

This time for a girl, all we know is that the middle name is most likely going to be Irene. DH's top girl name is Katherine, mine is Josephine... but I worry that Josephine Irene just sounds too sing-songy.

For a boy, DH is really set on Thomas, but I'm not a huge fan. I like the name well enough, but I just don't feel like it's MY son's name, if that makes any sense. My favorite is Edward, but I almost don't want to use it because of Twilight. At this point, we may have agreed that Edward Thomas is acceptable... but we'll see how we feel in 8 or so months.

Jen, mommy to DD (3/06), DS (5/08), 2 angels, and someone new coming 8/17/10.

For a girl, I like
Isabella Marie
Marissa Renee
Alianna (ah-lee-auhna)

For a boy... I have NO CLUE! LOL There are tons of boys in DH's family, and I really don't want to repeat any of them
Anthony Guido is a possibility... Guido would be after DH's best friend that passed away almost 6 years ago. Anthony is the only first name I can think of to go w/ it.
Andrew Michael I like, but Michael is DH's brothers first name and we didn't use it for a middle name for DS because of that...

I really like androgenous names... we already have a boy named Kieran. It's a very masculine Irish name that means "Little Dark One", but i grew up with an East Indian girl named Kiran and the Indian version means "Child of Light". I thought the name had great balance to it both in masculine/feminine and light/dark.

This time around I'm not sure... I can't ask my husband yet as he doesn't like talking about names this early. I really like Cael Malachi for a boy and Kathryn Victoria for a girl. I'm sure our list will grow though. My intuition tells me we have another boy on the way.

Our dd2 is Juliet Isla! More than any of our other middle names (Annabel Rose, Natalie Johannah, Margaret Elisabeth) I wish I'd saved Isla for a first name. But I still love it with Juliet.

I want Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle) for a girl and am still holding on to Hayden if it's a boy. Hayden has been on our name list for 10 years. I also love Evelyn, Charlotte, Clementine and Jack. Both our girls have traditional names and I'd like to continue the theme. We go less traditional for middle names.

Crashing (yet again) to give major for Sophie. That's our girl name, too (when there is a baby girl to name, that is).

Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.

I've heard of it, but I haven't heard it yet. I learned about it when I was researching it. That's a good idea, though! I'll have to download the song sometime.
