<p>Has anyone else started thinking of names?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I keep having girl dreams and given the fact we already have three girls, I think it must be impossible for us to have a boy, so we've concentrated on only picking out a girls name, which we have. I will post the name later.</p>

<p>I was just talking to friends about names today. We have lists of names, we generally wait to see the baby before deciding and we don't find out gender but I like to have a pool to choose from. So far for girls we have Laurel, Eliza, and Linden. For a boy name all we could agree on so far was Blake. I'm sure we'll be adding more and changing things between now and baby time. </p>

<p>We're good about sticking with names once we pick them. I'm shocked we've picked the girls name so early in the game. But we chose DD2's as soon as I found out I was pregnant.</p>

<p>I am so far convinced that we are having a girl.  We are pretty set on Galen for a girl.  If we have a boy, I have no clue. </p>

<p>Our girl name is Kinsley. For a middle name I'm thinking Addison.</p>

<p>Thanks, Kerri! Having three L names in a row could be somewhat troublesome when saying all of their names in rapid succession <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"> I do really love those names, though. I'm okay with having a non-L name but I seem to really be drawn to L names. For a girl, I think we'll either use Cait or Quinn as a middle name. </p>

<p>DH is scottish and I am 7/8 irish, so we tend to lean towards celtic names, with family names as middle names.  I just threw "Niall" out there for DH to chew on for a bit for a boy.  He said "well, I don't HATE it...."  He liked Declan for our first but i fought him tooth and nail.  It didn't sound good with our last name.    I also like Annen for a boy.  Or a girl. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>We want celtic, not popular in the US but not weird... just "different". </p>

<p>We went over the lists left from the last baby just this weekend. So far there is only ONE boys name that DH didn't make a vomiting face when he heard it (yet he can't come up with any suggestions of his own, mind you) so at this point that will be the one. We would still have to come up with a middle name for it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For a girl, our list is long, but we did rule some out. There are 3 top contenders and a middle name that would "go" with them all. But I know we'll chew it over a million more times before the baby is born.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For our 1st we did not find out gender, for the 2nd we did. I made both of those decisions so I'm letting DH decide whether or not we find out this time and so far he says no, so we will need to have both genders covered, and we like to have 2 choices for each gender so we see which one "matches" the baby better, but not sure that's happening for a boy this time.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love names, so I'm happy to obsess over it many times, much to my DH's chagrin.</p>

<p>I think I'll probably wait to find out the gender before I think about names, because then I will only have to consider half as many.  We did have a list for both last time, though, even though we found out the gender at 20 weeks or so.  I've thought a little about it and the only one that has popped up from last time, for a girl, is Laurel!</p>

Haha- the thought of the vomiting face is making me laugh.  My DH is also very quick to shoot down anything I say, but NEVER does he have any names to contribute. <br>

<br><br><p>Ugh, I hate when they do that. My DH shot down Orion "because people will just say Ryan" or other such nonsence. DS is Sirius, like anyone ever says that right.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Luckily this time around DH and I already have a few ideas so it's just making something final. I think we are going to wait until the baby is born, but I also like the idea of knowing what the little person in me is named.</p>

<p>i have had named picked out since before getting pregnant but will have to meet this baby to decide for sure. for a boy oliver sparrow, and for a girl nellie beatrix, oliver because i like the idea it has meaning related to olive tree and olive branch being a symbol for peace and sparrow because when i got pregnant i was enjoying listening the the yellow crowned sparrows that migrate here in the fall sing. their song is so pretty and my sons middle name is robin i like the idea of another bird name. i found out there is a soccer player named oliver sparrow and some other person with the name but i am ok with that. for a girl nellie was my great grandmother and i decided when i was about 4 to name a daughter after her. beatrix because i love the name and love the meaning i have read that it means she who brings happiness and also that it means voyager. not certain on how nellie will be spelled if a girl. i keep spelling it nellie by could change that later and i could meet this baby and come up with a completely different name.</p>

<p>Names are so hard! We have to pick something that works in German and English, so no names with a "th" in it because my mom would never be able to pronounce it. I should also fit with the existing names.</p>
<p>My DH like Annick for a girl, I like Mia and Alma.</p>
<p>We both like Madox for a boy.</p>

Xenia was on our list last time, so I'm pretty sure it'll be on our list this time...Only problem being that DS's name begins with an X and I don't know if I want to name them both with X's (that is, if we happen to have a girl this go round of course).  Another one of our top girl names also starts with an X. <br>

<p>I'm a little sad this go round there really isn't any name debate. If the baby is a girl, which is what my intuition says, her name will be  <span style="color:rgb(255,102,153);">Charlotte Mary</span>. If it's a boy, his name will be <span style="color:rgb(102,204,255);">Grant Edward</span>. We've had these names set literally since the moment the test read positive.  </p>

<p>We've had a girl name picked out for 7 years but we keep having boys. We've stuck with the same girl name that whole time, although I did pick a few different middle names when I was pg last year. It's Hawaiian because we were living in Hawaii when I was pg with #2. Since we have 3 boys, we're having a hard time coming up with another boy name. My dh is Irish and I like the sound of most Irish and Celtic names for boys so we tend to stick with those. Meaning is also very important to us. I actually found a baby name book that lists names by meaning. Very cool. One of our issues now for boy names is that all 3 of our boys' names end with either -an or -en so I kind of want to stick with that. It just seems like it might be an odd man out kind of thing if we go with a completely different name. DH doesn't see what the big deal is.</p>

<p>Nowhere even close to deciding on a name. DH asked me last night if we could name the baby something crazy like Apple or Crimefighter. I suggested the middle name Danger. So we'll probably go with something like Natalie.</p>

<p>We pretty much have a girl's name picked out but we have not agreed on a boy's name. We've thrown around some ideas though and we're mostly o.k. with a couple of names so I think we'll be o.k. Once we find out the gender then we can really focus on names.</p>

apperently penn jillette of penn and teller named his daughter moxie crimefighter :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i now return you to the regular talk of baby names</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i keep pondering nele from the childrens book tutu nele and nene. the book claims it is the hawian version of nellie but i have never found another sorce that claims that. have found sources saying nele pronounced neel eh is a dutch nickname for cornelia though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i think if this baby is a girl i will not really be able to name her until after she is born. i wait until birth to know. if this baby is a boy he will probably be named oliver sparrow though.</p>
