Island Momma Same here, we have a list but don't love or even really like them. Its funny we're having a boy again, but not considering any of the names we had on the list for my first son. Seems to be harder the second time.
07-07-2014 07:24 PM
juicypakwan Danielle- I am in the same boat 30+ wks and NO names! It is stressing me out a bit I just can't find any I like and can't seem to find time to really research.
07-07-2014 04:25 PM
daniellebluetoo almost 31 weeks here... still nothing. i had a list. Dh shot those down. I even asked a friend who did a "baby reading" for me.. he's not talking either. ;-( Says he might tell me in a dream or shortly before birth.....it kinda makes me anxious.

yeah, I like it... wanna have matching baby names?
06-26-2014 08:39 PM
CorinneVT Note to self: I like Camille-Millie, Milla and Marigold-Mari. Could Marigold be a boy's name too?
06-26-2014 08:37 PM
CorinneVT Mozzie like Ozzie Osbourne or like rhymes with posie? Could be sweet but it sounds to me like more of a nickname.

This is not my DDC, so forgive me for crashing! I have friends who named their daughter Milla (not short for anything). Sooo, cute!

Island Momma I've been kind of quiet on the boards but wanted to run a name by everyone. We are having a lot of trouble coming up with a name for our boy. We thought of Mozzie tonight. Completely horrible or kind of fun?

bren94 I'm so early in my pregnancy but of course I already have a list of potential names. We won't actually decide until we meet baby but so far for girls names we favor Guinevere, Gwendolyn, Charlotte, Arietta, Ophelia, and Fiona. For boys we like Phoenix, Declan, William (after DH) shortened to "Liam", and Maximilian.

delicate_sunshine We don't share our names that we are thinking of either (IRL). We were so certain that we were going to name our daughter Talitha, but everyone seemed to have a negative opinion of it that we changed it. She's Elizabeth Ree now (Elizabeth is his mom's middle name and Ree is a family name on my side) so it worked out. Then our youngest son was going to be Julian, and even was Julian for the first couple of hours after he was born, but we changed it to Johnathon. But that was because it's Dh's middle name and I think he really kind of wanted that but didn't want to push for it. This time around though, I said no more family names. We really don't have any good ones left anyway. We have a lot of people in our family who are just named initals, like J.S. Which is weird to me. So far, for a girl I really like Eowyn and for a boy I really like Taran, but we're having trouble coming up with middle names for them. We want the middle names to be Christian since we're Orthodox and will need to pick a saint for the baby. We're thinking Marigold to go with Eowyn (and use St Mary of Paris) and Tobias to go with Taran from the book of Tobit. Eh, I don't know though. It'll likely change before the baby is born. We're waiting to find out what we're having btw.

and they say this one is a boy so were thinking Atlas Wilde, "Atlas" but we dont know what to use for a third name, and where to put it. Maybe Mark after DH, or I also like Dane or Breaux.
If this baby surprises us and is a girl, (we had an early u/s) we like Clarity Rose or Petal Darling.

Most of our names thus far have been family names, we've been lucky to have fun family names to choose from.
Sorry mommy2ciara, I didnt mean to "quote" yours in my post. I'm kind of new at this!

He got so pissy over the name last night, and sat down and threw out some crappy suggestions- ones that I asked "do you even LIKE that name?" and he answered no. I don't know what his deal was but we had a semi fight about it. I think he just wants to pick this one but doesn't have a darn clue as to what he wants and is irritated that I have a couple that I really like already. I just can't figure out why.

delightedbutterfly Mason is huge right now. I know someone who just named their son Mason and it seems like everyone else is too...

Casey and Finnegan were from a kids show... Mr Rogers? Or... hrm

That could be a toss up. On one hand the kids would never pick up on it, on the other hand the parents might
06-20-2014 11:12 AM
Laggie I heard the name "Mason" over the weekend and DH and I both really liked it... until I found out that it was the number 2 name last year in BC. Drat. I don't want a name that is so popular there will be three of them in his kindergarten class.

I really like the name Casey. DH likes Finn. But I don't think we can name the boys Casey and Finn. Although I'm not sure if people will pick up on why not?

Marcimama Ooh, Cedar is cool!

I also like these natural names:
Aspen
Stone
River

mommy2ciara Yeah, I know he's feeling a little weird around this pregnancy. He was happy with two but knew I was dying for at least one more. In December I accepted that we were done at 2 and started looking for a job. I think DH wanted me working until he really thought about what that was going to change in all our lives, and he freaked a little and decided to go for one more baby. And it happened IMMEDIATELY. And then he freaked a little more when he realized yet again that it's going to change things. So I know he feels a lot of pressure to take care of 5 people financially, and I wonder if choosing a name is just a little piece of control that he's grasping to. OR...does he really just want to feel more included in picking a name but doesn't want to put in the time to look and think about them? And likely it's both, but I wasn't prepared for it. He's got a quick temper but quick means he gets angry and then a minute later is fine. I wasn't shocked that he got angry but I was when he dropped the subject but then went back to it several times over the evening.

Anyway, that was last weekend and it hasn't come up at all. I'll keep thinking of alternatives to my two favorites but I think my best bet is to let him come up with one or two that we actually consider. So far he hasn't had any name for any of these babies that we've actually thought about, so maybe if I supply him with name books/websites we'll find something.

Marcimama Mommy2ciara - I think it is hard for dads some times... I can only imagine they must feel really unconnected with the whole thing and struggle to bond during pregnancy, while we have lots of opportunities to begin that process.

I know I had to "give up" on picking names until my husband could see our baby, because he just really couldn't feel ok about picking one until he had seen them and felt a connection (which was very soon after birth). Now... I am SOOO glad we did wait because the other names I had chosen prior to birth were not the best fit for who our children are... and when we did see them we were in total agreement!

Oddly this time around he is very decided what name he wants, and I am the one feeling quite nebulous and unsure...

Aww I'm sorry. The fighting doesn't sound fun. I sometime think as much as they sometimes play down their emotions around pregnancy (some guys at least) some times it really does get to them too.

It's a catch 22 for me because it's not pressing... Yet... But I feel like if we're already having this much trouble then it is goin to *get* pressing.

Can you ask for a two day time out and when you come back, you both have to have calm attitudes and a possible list?
