Hi ladies, please keep the conversation going over on the November DDC Social Group!  We will lose all these great threads when this forum closes shortly after the birth of our babies.  This thread has already been copied and pasted into a new thread on the social group, so come on over and join the conversation there!  And please post new threads on the group so we don't lose them!  Thanks!

Great names - I'm liking Jasper and Asher.

 

I guess I can reveal our baby name - we said we wouldn't tell anyone and we havn't....well DH doesn't know I told most of my best friends - whoops!

 

So her name will be Ocean Maria.

 

My husband text me Ocean before we even conceived and there was no debate. He is a huge water and ocean person and we both love to surf - done and done!

We have a surf tour business in Nicaragua, Central America and so I thought Maria was feminine with that perfect Latin twist.

Clea I think is just really pretty and I'm a Lawerence Durrell fan (has a book with that name). Bee is because I was trying to incorporate my aunt Linda Lee and DH's gma Beverly (both have passed). And I love bees.

If we have a girl, she will be Violet Elizabeth Mary....or Hayley. :) If we have a boy, he will be Emerson Peter. Boy names have been harder for us to come up with. I also like Jamie (sounds sweet and cute, or else I have watched too much One Tree Hill). I also liked Felix but got negative responses for that choice.

FaithF Jensen is a great name! But yeah, coming up with a middle name that goes can sometimes be tricky.

I think Jensen sounds great with those other names as well.

We are still very, very stuck. Coming up with a 4th boy, family name is impossible. What do you all think of Jensen? My others are William, Christopher and Jack. I don't think it really goes but hubby loves it and I like it okay. We have very few options that we could be happy with. :( But we won't decide for sure until we see the kid's face.

09-20-2011 02:02 PM
FaithF I think we're going with Aria Sage for this little girls name. However I've had multiple people tell me that I look like I'm carrying a boy. And every single baby dream I've had has been with a boy. So who knows, ultrasounds can be wrong but I know I saw the 3 little lines on there! If it ended up being a boy, I do like Biblical names. Maybe Samson, Solomon or Josiah. But I would be using my husbands middle name (Zavala) because it's a unique family name we'd like to keep going.

I love all of the names you all have chosen smile.gif

I think Juniper sounds beautiful with Mirabel!

For a boy, we were really set on Oren the first time around, but now we are going back and forth between Oren and Linus. 

 

Either way, the baby will have two middle names, one from each side of the family, like big sister Mirabel.  We're going to wait until we meet this one before deciding.

My epic name that I've always loved but never gotten to use is Delilah.  Maybe this is the time to use it!  

 

I haven't given a lick of thought to boy names....!  See how much we run on intuition around here??  =)

LOVE LOVE LOVE Rain as a middle name!  I tried to convince DH to name our daughter Mikael Rain but he was set on Grace, so she ended up Grace Mikael.

I agree with you on waiting until we meet the baby....I kinda wanna see his little face before we make it 100% official....plus it keeps us from having to hear people's opinions too much :)

 

So far the only name both my husband and I like it: Alexander Luca for now we refer to our baby boy as "Lele" its kinda a brazilian nick-name (I'm brazilian :)

 

I find myself very defensive though, I want him to be referred to by either, Alexander, Luca or Lele....not a big fan of Alex, Zander, etc.... But at the end of the day I want our son to have the name we like....regardless of what people will call him...I guess you can't really control that!

Love the name Sora! Love that it plays to your husbands heritage as well! Very neat!

I love Silas Robert.....but DS1 is William Robert. My DH is Robert, too! I really like Vaughan, too.

DH is Robert Garfield, the names go back quite a ways on his side so we kept it going.  DH and his brothers have very old fashioned and kind of southern middle names.  Vaughan, Dewey, Maynard, and Garfield.

 

I love John, it's so classic and goes with pretty much anything.

For a girl we're going with Autumn.  Probably Autumn Rain.

 

For a boy... still no idea.  We considered Sebastian as we have fond memories of a little friend of dd's from Texas with that name.  But I'm still hung up on it being another "A" name.  ARgh!

DD would have been John Henry if she was a he.

Our other two also have two middle names so it's just a thing we do.

Our DS is Silas.  Good name!

Mal, I'd have wanted to slap him too!

 

I think we're going with Savannah for a girl and we're really on the fence for a boy - either Sebastian or Nicholas.

Nope. We went through a bazillion names. I liked a lot more one-syllable names too but hubby didn't like them. "Lynn" was another middle name we toyed with but again, it's so popular... Our last name is kinda long too, three syllables. We'll see what we end up with!
