I've been thinking about baby names a lot today. I haven't run them by my DH (and we never agree) but here's what I like today...

Justus (boy) or Justice (girl)
Riley (boy) or Rylee (girl)

It's the first time I've considered unisex names. I think they're kinda cool.

Anyone else have any names in mind yet?

We have a theme going on and so we have to have a name between 5 and 6 letters that starts with *ay so like Haylee, or but something non popular.

It makes it interesting!! I like Caymen but last I checked dh does not.

Our girl's name is Nico Lynn. We keep fighting over a boy's name. I really like Finnegan (and call him Finn) but DH is adamantly opposed. So who knows.

for a girl we have picked out: olivia renn

for a boy we are deciding on first name, possibly oliver or henry, but middle name will be thomas (my husband's name).

my first 2 were named after family members: jack riley & nathan michael.

olivia renn is not a family name at all, but i am in love with both names.

nico and finn are some of our names too!
we aren't using them though, i don't think.
my friend might name her son finn and it has lost it's appeal to me after glee...and nico i'm just not 100% in love with anymore. plus it would rhyme with our frontrunner girl name and that is a definite no-go...i'm pretty harsh when it comes to baby names!

i think we have our frontrunners picked out but no middles yet

Favorite girl name - Ava Rose
We both like Jackson for a boy, but that could change. Not sure on a middle name. Boys names are harder for us to agree on.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

I LOVE the idea of unisex names. However, I can't bring my DH around to the idea (he is usually really open minded, I have no idea why he's not up for it).

Our 5 year old is Fionn (Irish spelling of Finn, we still pronounce it 'fin')...I hear you on the Glee thing, ryleeee. It seemed like a unique name when we picked it, and then Julia Roberts used it (a few months before my guy was born - we had already decided on the name) and the Finns hit the fan (when you have a Finn, you start noticing...there's been one on Grey's Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, and I think one other show besides Glee, can't remember). I still love it, though

We have been carrying the girl name Aibhlinn around since our first pregnancy. Not sure if it will get dusted off again...probably. Boy names are harder since we already have two boys. I am trying to talk DH into Eamon Harry (DH's grandfathers were both named Harold, so this would be a tip of the hat to them), but he doesn't seem fussy. He is always wishy washy about names this early on, though.

Me and DH never can agree on names but here are the ones I like:
Girl: Ancilina, Deniza, or Eden ( Deniza was my Great-Grandma's name)

Boys: Elias, Ephraim, Torrin

And a note for everyone who likes Jackson, I have a Jaxon and every other time we go out, I hear a parent calling out to their Jackson. It is VERY popular. In my math class one semester there were 4 of us who had a child named Jackson. All different spellings though.

OK, we have a girl name, Amelia Faith. We are about 90% sure we're having a girl, but there's always "what if" that has us picking boy names too. We are in love with Josiah. We have tried almost every name imaginable for a middle name with absolutely NO luck! Any suggestions?! I keep threatening to name him Josiah BoB (with that spelling). LOL

Our daughter is called Maia and everyone comments on how beautiful it is, especially the spelling. Her middle name is Lynn, and we often call her Maia Lynn

That is our only frustration with the spelling, people are often not sure whether to pronounce it 'My-a" or "May-a" - (we pronounce it My-a)

Oh no! That is the only boy name we can agree on. At least we don't personally know anyone with that name, no one at church and none of our family or friends. There's one other boy name we love, but it clashes pretty bad with our last name so it's definitely out. Uh, boy names are hard.

cincanada & ryleee--thanks!! i have had olivia for a girl picked out for years, but never could figure out a middle name. i wanted it to be 1 syllable because olivia is obviously 4, but everything i came up with sounded too plain, then i thought of wren, but i don't like silent letters in names because one day they have to learn to spell it, so i decided on renn. but then we have the double "n," but i can live with that.

just wanted to add: i agree boys names are hard because you don't want something that sounds prissy or feminine. something strong and manly, but not so manly they have an old man's name as a baby. that has been my struggle, anyway.
