<p>I like Jasper and Maggie (Magnolia). But I think they are both better child names than adult names... DP likes Jasper but he's from Holland and apparently it's a fairly common name there. I think my family would hate it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a short list but every time I write something down it seems stupid a week later. I'm not sure if that is self doubt or if I just haven't found the right names yet.</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure that both our families are going to hate our names! Ha, oh well, its not their baby. My cousin just named her daughter Brooklyn which is the exact opposite of the style I like: Zeno, Apollo, Saber...weird names. :)</p>

<p>We are tossing around some names now. Some girl ideas: Faye, Hazel, Leanne, Greta/Gretchen, Robin..... this will take some pondering.  :)  Boys... also hard.  William was our choice for our 2 daughters, but it doesn't seem to fit anymore, especially since SIL just used it as a middle name.  Rowan is our first pick, but my sister wouldn't take it well since she has a Ryan and we already have one set of rhyming kids between us.  We loved the sound of Cohen, especially since I'm jewish by nationality, but found out it's offensive to people of Jewish faith, and I wouldn't want to do that.  I don't have anything else at the moment.</p>

<p>This baby's name is either Deborah Kathleen or Dalton Elwood. </p>
<p>Deborah was DH's cousin that died in a house fire when she was a little kid, Kathleen is my MIL. (I <3 <3 <3 my MIL)</p>
<p>We just both like Dalton, and Elwood is Mark's maternal grandfather.</p>

<p>I'm definitely thinking about it. Just downloaded a baby name app last night and started browsing. I have a very strong intuition that this is going to be a girl, so I'm mainly looking at girls' names. Boys' names are so much harder, for some reason. I really like Stella and I also like Maricel. Middle name maybe Shirley, for my grandmother. (A name that she changed to.)</p>

<p>It's so funny but I'm not thinking about names at all.  Last time I started with names the minute I got a BFP.  But, it was such a struggle to find a name that DH and I both loved and I just haven't been ready to start the process again yet (I'm so tired!).  And, he was so resistant with thinking about names when I was preg with DD.    I was thinking we'd just hold off until we knew the sex. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But the past few days, DH, has been mentioning names every chance he gets.  Funny thing too?  They all seem to be boy names and I'm (sort of) hoping for another girl! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Laggie, I love the name Magnolia.  I hadn't thought of that. </p>

<p>We've decided on a sweet, simple girls name, but are having a tough time with boy names.  Dp doesn't like any of the names I suggest.  Some names I like are Tristan, Evan, Logan, Liam, Lucas... Unfortunately L names are out because DPs last name starts with L and the double L names just make me think of Lex Luthor.  My son will not be a supervillain!  Also, DP HATES Tristan and Evan, so we are stuck for now.  At least if we have a girl things are settled!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>azgardengirl77 & FrannieM: I am 8w2d today and am due on Jan 31st.  So azgardengirl77, you must be 8 weeks today if you are due on Feb 2nd <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>Daisy is a cute name.  It's tough when someone from your (or your DHs) past spoils a name for you, though.  There are definitely some names that we're avoiding for that very reason.</p>

<p>My Dr.explained to me that she calculates to include the current week, so on Tues when we had our ultrasound she dated us at 7 weeks 5 days which put us as just having completed week 8 today and starting week 9 today.  So in theory yes it is 8 weeks if you calculate the weeks completed rather than calculate with the current week.   She certainly confused me explaining it during the ultrasound....lol</p>

My friends midwife calculates it like that, too! When she was explaining it to me I was like... WHAT?! <img alt="nut.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/nut.gif"></p>

<p>My hubby thinks it will be a girl.  I have no inkling one way or the other.  With DS I *knew* he was going to be a boy even before I got pregnant.  DH likes the name Kathryn. It's what DS was going to be named if he was a girl.  I am SO over that name.  I like names you don't need to shorten-- DS is MIchael, I am Emily, DH is James. We don't go by nicknames, and the only way I can stomach the name Kathryn is if I call her Kate.  I will NOT call her Katie, I don't like the "dumbing down" (for lack of a better word) of girls' names. Anyway, if we go with Kathryn, I want the middle name Norah.  DH does NOT like that name :shrug.  I guess we have our work cut out for us :lol</p>

<p>I love reading everyone's potential names!  Great choices.  I love old fashioned names.  My first name is Violet Rose.  I named my daughter Sparrow, no middle name.  She is now six years old.  I am almost seven weeks along.  (Although I am enjoying summer and my pregnancy is going well, I am looking forward to the relieve of making it to the second trimester.)  Sparrow's name came to me clear as day.  There were sparrow's on my fence looking through my living room window at me while I was pregnant.  Sparrow wants to name her little baby sister "Wanda."  She doesn't want to even talk about the baby being a boy.  She says she'll name him "Nothing."  I would love to name this baby after somebody who has been important in my life.  I like "Carlyle," my grandpa's name.  When I was a kid I wanted to name my girl "Sugaree" and my boy "Coyote."  I was a scrappy little hippie kid and now that I'm writing this I don't think I've changed much since my girl's name is Sparrow!  </p>
