Baby names poll

We're getting married soon and hope to conceive (or at least try) right away. We've been thinking up names, and agree on most of them. What do y'all think? We like biblical or Portuguese inspired names. Most of our names seem to not be common, but are not completely unheard of. I don't mind common names at all - these just seem to fit our families. The last name is... gasp - Lubold.

Boys

Micah Marlin - Marlin is my DF's late grandfather's name.

Mateo Manuel - Manuel is my late grandfather's name

Girls

Matea Manuela - a female version of name #2

Lourdes Ann - our mother's names.

Amalia Isabel - Isabel is my grandmother's name; we'd probably nn her Mali (pronounced Molly). 

Family is not being very helpful. They just want me pregnant already! We've got a few months before we start trying but I love strangers opinions. Honesty is better within this pool. What do you think of each name? TIA!

Re: Baby names poll

  • Good lord, jump the gun much? Don't jinx yourself. Get yourself married, then knocked up, THEN you can think about baby names.

    I mean, seriously?

  • I'm not asking your opinion on my life, I am asking it on the names.

    So yea, opinion on the names?

  • Loading the player...
  • Boy - there are way too many m's there for my taste, but Mateo Manuel flows better.

    Girl - Amalia Isabel is very pretty, although I'm not a fan of your nickname.

  • I don't care what you're asking for...you get an opinion either way.

     You're welcome in advance.

  • Boys

    Micah Marlin - Don't like this one so much

    Mateo Manuel - I think this one would sound nice with the last name

    Girls

    Matea Manuela - Very cute!

    Lourdes Ann - don't like

    Amalia Isabel - This one is my favorite!

     

    BTW, good luck on your trying. I wish you a quick BFP!

    I have noticed that you tend to be very rude...

  • All I have to say, Blues, is pregnancy should bring out the pretty in a woman. And you are getting ugly for no reason. It's not like I said "I'm 15 and really like baby names." I am in a committed relationship looking to conceive - humor me. Better yet, don't humor me, but keep ugly comments to yourself.
  • You are not the only one she has made such comments to. She referred to all of my names as "shitteous"! How rude. I respect the fact that you are looking for suggestions and are so excited about bringing a new life into this world.

    LOL that giving you a bad comment on your names/life makes me ugly. Ha!!!! Thanks for the laugh. Please, amuse me some more. Work is slow...BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
  • So motherhood didn't bring out the maturity in you either, huh?

    I saw that too, Im hoping it's just the pregnancy hormones, would hate to see what it's like in her house about now.

  • Boys

    Micah Marlin - I've only known female Micahs, so this seems very feminine to me

    Mateo Manuel - It's okay.  I think I prefer Mateo Marlin better

    Girls

    Matea Manuela - Too masculine and not pretty

    Lourdes Ann - it's okay, a bit Madonna

    Amalia Isabel - interesting without being weird.  This would be my pick
  • Micah, Mateo, Matea, and Amalia are all very cute!  I like your middle name choices too.

  • Micah- don't like, I like Michael

    Mateo- too ethnic sounding to me

    Matea- same as Mateo- don't like it

    Lourdes- reminds me of Madonna's hairy daughter

    Amalia- sounds like Somalia a place across the world..

    Don't post it if you don't want comments on it. You could have just posted the names, we don't need to know your life story.

  • Thanks for the posts. Micah is a variation of my FI's name. Agreeing with Lourdes reminding of Madonna. Thanks for the feedback.

    BTW - Amalia is after famed portuguese Fado singer Amalia Rodrigues. I never thought of it sounding like Somalia. Thanks for that perspective!

  • for boys i prefer Mateo Manuel. for girls, i prefer Amalia Isabel.
  • all your names are cool. i like amalia isabel best and also a fan of mateo marlin...

    don't let the bitchy blues get ya down. everyone has opinions and some shouldn't be shared but apparently someones mama didn't teach her to keep mean comments to herself. hope her baby doesn't inherit that trait. 

  • It's never too early to discuss names. It can cause a lot of tension in a relationship (I know, I'm dealing with a stubborn DH). So kudos to you and your FI for trying to work it out early.

    I love Amalia Isabel and Micah Marlin.

  • I like Micah Marlin and Amalia Isabel.?
  • Boys

    Micah Marlin - eh, not so much

    Mateo Manuel - its OK

    Girls

    Matea Manuela - I like it

    Lourdes Ann - concur with Madonna reference

    Amalia Isabel - love this one, its my pick

    TTC #1 for over 5 years - too many to count IF treatments (tried everything and anything), repeat miscarriages. Finally, Sticky Success!! B/G Twins arrived 2011. VOTE on my Name List Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • I dont really like first and middle names that start with the same letter.  But prefer Micah over Mateo.

    I only like Amalia Isabel out of your girl names. 

  • I like Micah (only b/c this is my name, spelled Mica), but I don't care for it with the middle name of Marlin.
