Our name of the day is Aubrey Jane, though I keep changing my mind. We also like Charlotte and Violet.<br><br>
The just in case boy name would be Rowan Murray, I would use Rowan for a girls name but dh doesn't care for it for a girl.

I am not 100% yet, but I like the name Wilson (Willy or Wil) for a first name. I am thinking maybe Jack for a middle name (my beloved grandpa's middle name). I don't know though for sure, I don't want to say "wilson" and have 50 kids say "what?" I have been calling him Willy though, or Willy worm.. he moves a lot!

We're naming our little girl <span>Anaiah Conley Murphy</span>. Anaiah means "God has answered" and is biblical. Conley is my maiden name and Murphy is our last name.<br><br>
If by some chance she turns out to be a he then his name will be Dexter Isaiah, Dexter Isaac or Dexter Elijah and we'll call him by the middle name.

Are you looking for a traditional middle name or unusual one? I rather like Ruth Elizabeth. Or Ruth Eleanor.</div>

My grandma's name is Ruth Elizabeth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We were going to use Ruth as a first name but opted for something else and using Jane as a middle name.

Well, we don't officially know what we're having, we have strong feelings that it's a girl based on when we did the BD and ovulated, and also my friend's DH has predicted with 100% accuracy dozens of babies' genders and says I have a girl inside...so with that said, I am will be relieved if this is true because we can't agree on a boys name.<br><br>
If it is a girl, she will have the first name Alana, pronounced Uh-Lawn-Uh, which is Hawaiian for "offering." I have the verse picked out for her announcement, if indeed it is a girl, Psalm 56:12-13, which talks about giving a "thank offering for delivering me...." I am from Hawaii, but it has been hard to find names because many are quite long, or taken already by friends of mine.<br><br>
Her 2 Middle names are still not solidified, but I think Joy (my mn) Karis (means "grace"). I also like the name Petra, which means "Rock" as DH and I both enjoy rock climbing but I think Alana Karis Petra is a little too much and could use a 1 syllable in there....<br>
open to ideas and suggestions!<br><br>
You guys have picked out terrific names! Good luck to those still searching!<br>

I like the multiple syllableness of that name! It has <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/drum.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="drum">: rhythm.

If my instincts and the ultrasound technician are right, this baby is Zola Ianthe Maia, or maybe Zola Ianthe Cordelia, or maybe even Zola Ianthe Cordelia Maia, if I decide to be bold enough. If they're wrong, then the poor little guy doesn't have a name yet! I can't find a boy's name that feels right.

our little girl will be Clara Hypatia<br><br>
Clara for Clara Schumann <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_Schumann" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_Schumann</a> which is trying to make a family tradition for naming girls after composers... my SIL is Johanna after Johannes Brahms. Hypatia is for Hypatia of Alexandria first notable female mathematician (I was a math major in college and am still a bit of a math geek) <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypatia" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypatia</a><br><br>
we've had that name picked out for years and years and years. I remember being ticked that a certain cyberpunk author used Hypatia for the daughter of one of his characters and was convinced that all of my friends would just assume that's where we found it. I love that both women were very strong interesting people at a time where women were not expected to be either strong or interesting!<br><br>
if this should happen to be a boy we'll name him Elias (the only boy name we could even tolerate... maybe next pregnancy we'll find one with interesting historical figures attached to it?) Herschel (my husband's maternal grandfather who he had a very close relationship with.)

Anaiah is pronounced Uh-Nye-uh. I hope that comes across right. I am not very good at phoenetics (sp?).

That is a cool name! I love the meaning behind it, too!<br><br>
Okay, I forgot there was another name that I love too that I could stick in after Alana's first name--Cedar...We're planning a homebirth and we live amongst a lot of Cedar trees all around our house....<br>
so:<br>
Alana Joy Karis?<br>
Alana Cedar Karis?<br>
Alana Karis Petra?<br>
Alana Joy Karis Petra Cedar?--just kidding...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Help!! I'll just die if it turns out to be a boy and we've spent all our energy investigating girls' names!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

That is so funny because my son is named Levi, and so is our friend's dog, which I completely forgot about when we named him! So now when we go visit them, my friend will say, "No Levi! Down dog!" and my son will be so confused! I guess that's what I get for keeping names a secret from my "real life" friends until the baby is born.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br><br>
Thanks for your feedback on the name though, I really do like it as well, I just like so many! But especially if we give birth beneath the cedar trees (I've actually thought about delivering outside in the birthing tub just to get the full effect, but it will be October!)....

Anaiah is beautiful! Not one I've noticed before, but very nice. And similar to our (still secret - shh!) name choice for a girl: Eliana. In Hebrew it means, "My God has answered." If, indeed, we have a girl, it will be quite an answer to prayer! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I love your boys' names, too. My sister has dibs on Isaac and has for many years (not yet married), and Elijah has been on our list for ages, too.<br><br>
If we have a boy... he'll have no name! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Seriously, I love the name Rowan but that's about the only name I love - and I don't love the meaning, which is paramount for me. The only contenders, really, are perhaps Asher, Elijah (have friends with both of these already - though Asher is not a close friend and the Elijah goes by Eli)... maybe that's it? I'm fairly well convinced it's a girl just because I have NO clue for a boy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

If it is a boy, Liam Jacob. We don't have a solid girl's name picked out yet and we didn't with dd until she was a few hours old. I like Charlotte, Scarlett, Mia, Ophelia and a few others, but we will see.

Ophelia is so beautiful, but so tragic. It's like Deirdre, I love that name too, but it has a sad story.

It's taken nearly nine months to even discuss with DH but I think we have narrowed it down to <i>Wren Victoria Robertson</i> We have named our daughters after something special in our lives (Jasmine and Amber) and Wren is a reminder of the cactus wrens in the desert where we were married and Victoria is where we met. Our other daughters have mn after grandmothers but we didn't like either of the Great-Grandmas names with Wren (Jean or Vera). Let's hope it isn't a boy or he will definately be nameless for awhile<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
