We need a fun thread. Warning: I am verbose.
My first daughter is Isabel Marie. Her little sister needs a name, which dh and Isa want to be Elizabeth. Which is the English form of Isabel. ACK.
Dh always wants a family name or a Scottish name, and I want a nature name or a Norse/Celtic name. Between both of us vetoing left and right, we don't get very far.
Ideas so far:
pros: Scottish, Mount Desert Island is really important to us, and Jane is my gma's name
cons: Jane is also my old dog's name, and I know two Islas now and the mom of one of them annoys me, ha
pros: Norse, means beloved
cons: Not Scottish, dh gets snotty about it
pros: MDI connection still there
cons: can't think of a middle name, and if we move back home Acadia will grow up in, um, Acadia
Juniper - only if she's born in June, and I go late, so prolly not. But cute!
pros: dh and Isa love it, connection to Jane Austen who I worship
cons: SAME DAMN NAME AS ISABEL
Other names I like that dh doesn't:
Saerunn (Norse, beloved of the sea; mystery of the sea), Wren, Mercy, Iona
Other ideas? Scottish names, names relating to the sea (dh is a sailor), nature names, etc. Help me!
Mama to Isabel, 10/14/11, and Baby Boo-boo, due 7/8/16. Devoutly opposed to Mommy Wars, except the one where we are all Warrior Moms fighting for our babes together.
