2nd Trimester

Like a name but can't use it for some ridiculous reason?

I love the name Ella for a girl.  It's a popular name, but that doesn't matter too much.  Everytime I say the name I think of Rhianna's Umbrella song.  That just ruins it for me.

Do you have any names that are out for a ridiculous reason?

  • Ella Ella Ella Eh Eh Eh..

    I love the name Sawyer but I think it's more of a girl name plus a girl I know is due 3 days after me and that's the name she's picked. I'm kinda bummed.

  • Somehow FI and I have dated enough people to rule out half our good names. I can't have a baby Ryan knowing he was my first love, KWIM? lol

  • I love the name Rebecca, but because our last name starts with R, DH has vetoed all R names. Confused

  • anything that ends in an -er sound; it just doesn't go with our last name.

    So Sawyer, Harper, Oliver, and Edgar, all out.

    My husband doesn't "do" Biblical names. So anything like Noah, Ezra, Lilah ... all out.

  • I love the name Mason but one of the Kardashians' sisters have a son by that name. I didn't even know that until someone told me. Now I'm upset I can't use it. I don't want my son thinking he was named after a celebrity's baby and I don't even like the kardashians.
  • The only name I can pretty much name my son is Jacob... It's seriously the ONLY name me and  DH could agree on.. I like it but don't love it. So were pretty much both settling for a name we both can agree on because the names I love, he hates and the names he loves, I hate. =/

  • I like the name "Seth" for a boy but won't use it because it just sounds stupid with our last name.  Our last name is one syllable and ends in "th".
  • You ladies are cracking me up.

    I can't use another girl's name I like because it's part of our town's name.

    I'm gonna disagree. Sawyer is a very hot man on LOST :) DIRRRTY hot. yummy. :)


  • Boys name I have loved for my entire life + DH's last name = celebrity name. Bah!!!

  • My favorite girl name is Clara, but my ex has a little girl named Clara. Mind you he now lives in another country, but even my friends and family say "eh, better not use it". Too bad huh?

    I agree with this.  To me, Sawyer is a boy name.  I LOVE the name Sawyer for a boy (but it sounds horrible with our last name!).  I personally do not like the name Sawyer for a girl.  That's just my opinion though!!!  :)

  • Alyssa Ann

    Love the name, but I have a cousin named Melissa Ann and she would SWEAR that we named the baby after her.  Thankfully we're having a boy so I didn't have to figure out another name that DH and I agree on for a little girl.

  • DH veto'd a name because it was the name of one of his friend's girlfriend in high school and he thought that girl was skanky .  Seriously?  That's getting a bit far removed.

    If you don't follow them enough to know about it until someone told you, then I wouldn't be concerned about them having a baby named Mason.  If you LOVED the Kardashian's shows and read their book and all your family knew that you liked them, then it would be weird.  Also, by the time your baby is old enough to know about celebrities, Mason Disick won't even be a blip on the radar (most likely).  Oh, and they call him "Masey"  (ewwwwww.)  so just stay away from that NN.  I would still use it though.

  • If we have a boy we want to name him Miles and I like a middle name that starts with a N. The problem is our last name starts with an M. I would start to call him my little M 'n' M. So...DH said no N middle names.

     Same here, at least for boy names. sigh. So we're waiting for the anatomy scan to see whether we're going to have to figure this out before May or whether it's a girl and we're good for a while longer.

    yep, x3.  we finally got some girl names picked out and narrowed down, but he hates my favorite and he doesnt have a favorite. dont even wanna talk about boy names! ugh! he wants to use Ronny, which is his best friend; they've been friends since they were like 5. i love the man like another brother, but i have never liked the name Ronny. we find out the sex thursday, so the name game gets serious after that. lol

  • We liked the name Delilah but it sounds too much like my DH's ex wife's youngest (Layla).  Considering we deal with her all the time (due to my DH's kids) I just couldn't take the similarity.

    Good thing we're having a boy!

  • I LOVE the name Avery. But DH says it sounds too much like Ovary (dork) and reminds him of Avery labels. 

    I liked Taryn, but he said that made him think of "Tear'in it up."

    I loved Sophia and actually had DH on board with it until I realized how stupid Sophie (which I'm sure at some point she would be referred to as) sounded with our last name...which starts with an S.  Sounded way to Hannah Montana for me. 

    So Megan Victoria it is...nice and traditional. 

  • we love the name Clayton, but i absolutely despise the nn Clay.

    LOST is one of the reasons that I love that name! Who knows, we may just suck it up and choose it anyway. lol!

    Unfortunately ladies, it doesn't get much easier after you know the sex.  At least it didn't for us.  Girls names were a bit easier to agree on from the beginning, but guess what?  It's a boy!!!

    We each came up with a top 10 list and not a single name was in common Confused  He nixed mine for the regular ridiculous reasons:  "my old boss had that name, he was a jerk"  "ugh i knew a ___ in school and he threw a ball like a girl"  "my HS girlfriend cheated on me with a ___"   etc.  I hated his mostly becuase they are very common (his name, his brothers name, my dad and bro's name, etc.) and we have a common last name. We now have a list of 2 or 3 that neither of us love, but can't find a ridiculous reason to veto.  Hopefully one of them will grow on us and be perfect for our little man!

  • It's a tradition in my family for girls to have Anne as a middle name.  I'd like to continue if we have a girl.  But my last name starts with a D so we have to be careful with initials - could end up with BAD, DAD, FAD, LAD, MAD, PAD, SAD, etc.

    I'm somewhat pushing for an R first name if we have a girl so her initials could be RAD.

  • DH's big requirement for boy's names is that it has to roll off the tongue well when he introduces himself to women.  If it's not a good pick-up name, it gets vetoed.  On the other hand, DD has been banned from dating, forever.  Yes, it is a double standard.
  • We rejected a lot of each other's names because of associations with other people, but our funnier ones were because of DS's name.

    For example, Charlie and Lucy or Charles and Diana.  Somebody pointed out Charlie Rose to me...obscure but still a little weird.  Somebody else said no Charlie and Angela because we would have a Charlie's Angel.  I wasn't really after Rose, Diana, or Angela, but I did get a laugh out of it.  I also adore Charlotte, but oh well!  He was here first!

    FWIW I thought we would never land on a name we both loved.  We tossed around a thousand of them and shot them all down.  But finally he came back to a name I had rejected (Miranda, because I don't like Mandy or Randy) and suggested calling her Mira.  I thought it was impossible, but here we are with a name I adore!

  • I am so in the same boat.  We quickly picked girls names, and we are having a boy.  I love Sawyer and Hudson, my husband vetoed them both because of Lost and who knows for Hudson.  We both liked Miles, it rhymes with our last name - out.  I bet we decide when we see him!

    My first pick for a girl name was Dixie  Ann. Our last name starts with an M. her initials would be D.A.M.  DH told me very qucikly no. lol   My poor dad's initials are BED and my brother is JED.

  • DH liked Chevelle & Spartacus (for middle name). No, I am NOT joking.

    So we could never agree on a name. Finally, he suggested Alicia (Alisha), and I said I liked it. And since its the ONLY girl name we could agree on, it stuck. And the more we call her that, the more it grows on me. We just have to pick a spelling.

    Now Spartacus I'll have to figure out something with the next baby, if there is one, and its a boy. Oy.
