March 2012 Moms

Names you love but wouldn't give to your child.

There are so many names I like but my taste is just so old-fashioned! I love the name Edgar, but I don't think I could name my baby that.

    Clementine is cute but I agree, I think "Oh my darling" when I hear the name.  Do you like Cleona?

  • My favorite name is Hannah, but our last name is way too similar to Hannah to ever use it as our baby's name.

    This name is all over the baby name board. I just don't understand love affair with it.

    I love the names Maeve and Bridget. I never pressed either of them with my husband because we've had our girl name decided since day 1.

  • I really like Dinah but my husband does not.  We already have a girl name picked out though that we both like.  For a boy we both love the name Arlo but are not going to use it.  Just can't bring ourselves to do it.

  • I really like traditional Irish names.  Seamus is one of my favorite boy names, but MH is not a fan.  For girls I love Siobhan (pronounced Sha-von), Saoirse (Seer-sha), and Roisin (Ro-sheen).  MH likes Roisin a lot, but because of the spelling/pronunciation issues that it would cause, we won't pick any of the Irish names I love.
    Lots of love to my BFPB, Squishy622 <3

  • For a girl I like Huxleigh Jean, and for a boy I like Huxley Joel. My family hates the names. They say people will call them Hux for short and it sounds like a dogs name. It stinks I have had the names picked out for 4 years. But what do you do name your kid a name a name all of your family thinks is stupid! Ugh...

    One of my friends named her little girl Olive and I think it's an adorable name for an adorable little girl!

  • I LOVE  the name Opal and have for a very long time but my DH hates it as well... trying to find a name we both like is very hard 
  • I love the name Elodie, but DH says we'd be confining her to a life of "(eye roll) Its just Melody, without the M."

  • For a little while, I was really loving the name Ladybird, and my husband was on board. But then we both had a moment where we thought "ok, really? are we reeeaaallllllly gonna name our baby Ladybird?" Someone said it's the name of a dog on some stupid cartoon, and I have no love for LBJ. But c'mon. It's cool and vintage and ... ok, I'll stop. It's totally off the list.

    I love the name Elodie, but DH says we'd be confining her to a life of "(eye roll) Its just Melody, without the M." 

    this whole time i thought it was pronounced "ee-low-dee".
    "ella-dee" sounds a little better, but i still think the name is just... unattractive to look at.
    i see it on every baby name site i look at and i just don't get it.

    it's like the name Dashiel for a boy. WTF?

    I have a connection with the name because of a book I read every year to my students. So that's where the love of it comes for me. I don't know about anyone else. Where did the love affair of all names ending with aden come from? Who knows?

    Oh and I saw Olive mentioned as well, I looove that name but DH said no. :(

    I love Walter too.  Which is why I used it on one of our cats because I knew DH would never go for it.

  • I always loved the name Aidan.  And then it went and got popular, so I wouldn't use it now.  Of course now Kellen is growing in popularity, and I'm bummed about that!

  • Gertrude!  My favie of faves!  I have been in love with with the name since I was 12, but everyone I have ever talked to has told me it is hideous- so I named my dog Trudi.  That way I at least got to use it!

     

    I also like Simon and Olive, and while there is nothing wrong with these names, it's just that we've had pets named Simon and Olive.  :-</p>

  • My husband really wants to name a boy Samuel Eugene (now his excuse for Eugene is that it is a family name) The name is bad enough, but Our Last name starts with an X. Samuel Eugene X (and yes that is the reason he likes the name). Poor kid good thing I vetoed that one right away!!

    That's funny.. I was totally considering Cleona for a girl!  It's the name of a small town near my college.  It always sounded nice!

     

    I used to want to take the musical route and call my kid Sonata, Rhapsody, etc,. but can't bring myself to do it now!

    Love Seamus. Was on my top list for boys last time. Cannot sell DH on it, unfortunately. Also like Mairead (rhymes with parade) and Imogen for a girl, but probably wouldn't use these either. DH's fave boy name last time was Henry and while I completely love it, I know my family would call him Hank, and I HATE the nn Hank.

  • Irisheyes: I like the name Imogen, too!  MH vetoed that as well.

    If I had had a child when I was young, I'm sure it would have had an odd name!  When I was in high school, I thought if I ever had a boy I'd name him Basil.  Didn't even bring that one up as an option to MH because I knew he would hate it.
