  • For a girl we've picked Makayla Wynn. Makayla is after dh (Michael) but I went with the more modern spelling of Michaela. Wynn (or Winn- I can't decide) is short for Winnifred (my grandma).

    For a boy, I'm with @KirstinH88 as we used the only name we both liked for ds.
  • @wagnerw Loving those names. Parker is a family name as well and one of two of DS's middle names :)

  • We haven't even started this discussion yet, but it will be a battle I'm sure.  Our daughter, Annabelle Grace, was the only name we could agree on.  Our son, Patrick Gray, is named after my dad (who passed away in '03) and my father-in-law.

    For a boy, I like Louis Jackson because I'm from St. Louis and husband is from Jackson.  For a girl, I like Jacquelyn (and call her Jacque, after husband's grandfather) or I'd love an Irish name, but we shall see.

  • Our boy name is the same as our first pregnancy: Joshua James

    We love the first name and the middle name is DH's middle name, which is the same as his dad's middle name (DD's middle name is the same as mine)

    Girl name: Anna Marie

    DH fell in love with the name Anna for its biblical significance shortly after DD was born so we never really talked too much  
    about girl names since we have had it in mind for a while now, but we picked out the middle name the other day, for my sister who's middle name is also Marie

    We have a Keira, Conor, Harper, and Brendan. We've always picked fresh Irish first names and then family names for the middle (we have a very Irish last name). I've had the name Eden picked out for quite some time and hoped my husband would cave and let me use it last time, but he could not see it on a boy. I do like it for a girl better anyway and he's come around to it by now so I'm hoping a little bit for a girl this time just bc I have NO CLUE for boy names. Brendan wasn't named till the delivery room. My husband also likes to veto without giving any suggestions. 

    Edit; missing word
  • We have been back and forth so many times. DS is Adam. For a girl, we both really like Eva. But...Adam & Eva?! I don't think I can do We've been talking about alternatively doing Ava, but DH thinks that is also super cheesy. Middle name will either be Mae or Grace depending on what first name we end up picking. 

    I think if it's a boy we are leaning towards Nicholas, although I am not a huge fan of Nick which I'm sure he'll end up going by at some point. So it's still undecided.

    He likes older/traditional names. I like more modern names. So we are having a hard time. Picking names is so hard!!!!!
  • @KirstinH88, we like Iris for a middle name too! My husband is pretty stuck on the name Margot for a girl. Suddenly yesterday I realized it looks a little like maggot, so I think we would spell it The English/American way (Margo). 

    As for boys, I have no idea. I like Charles ("Charlie"), Julian, and Graham, but none really works for us for various reasons. Our son is Oscar.

    Thank goodness we've got time.

  • We have a spreadsheet but we will not decide until we see our baby. 

    DH vetoes my #1 girls name, Evelyn. I am super bummed but it is what it is. 

    We like the same boys names so that is a huge help

  • I love the inspiration behind all of your name choices!

    We are starting from scratch with this one. The names we liked our first go round (we were team green!) have lost their appeal in the two years since they were initially discussed. Our boy name was going to be Brooks but my coworker ruined that one for me. We ended up using our second choice girl name (Cora) to name DD's Cabbage Patch doll at Babyland General. I love Finn but DH keeps vetoing. Ah well, we'll find something!

  • DD (Alice) wasn't named until RIGHT before she was born so it's a miracle that we have any ideas right now! Our second choice for DD was Eleanor so that's what we're starting with for girl names. If it's a boy, he'll be Michael. We haven't agreed on middle names for either yet.
  • We had a hard time naming DD2, so praying this little bit is a boy so we don't have 34 weeks of that mess again.  If it is a boy, he will have a family name of Wallace Kelly, hoping to nickname him Walker if hubs agrees to it. My list currently for girls includes Lauren, Marisa, and Charlotte. 
  • @Caressa1 I love the name Alice! It's high on my list if it's a girl. :)

  • @belocin I am in love with Finn as a boy name! Precious! 
  • @Poison&;Wine the name Loxley is too precious.



    Those are the names I've picked out so it's a pretty rough list. My FI hasn't really put much thought into names quiet yet. Every time I mention names he seems to be agreeable. I'm sure that will change the closer we get. Middle names are still up in the air.

    @RachelGreene Thank you! I love your girl names, Penelope, Eleanor, and Fern the best! Willow would be pretty, too! I see some old-fashioned names on your list, as well. Have you considered Winnie? It's an old name that I think is just darling! 

    Edit: Oh, and Theodore is cuuuuute. 
  • For a girl we are going with Grace Margaret. For a boy, still up in the air. I like Grant. Last time we talked DH said he was coming around to Grant, so we'll see. Not sure about the middle name for a boy. 

    We also love Charlotte (with Anne as a middle name) but it's too popular right now. 

    I think we're trying to keep the name secret (except from you internet strangers LOL and my mom--which means we might be SOL since she has a big mouth) until birth but I don't know if I'll be able to do it.

  • @Poison&;Wine thanks! I am definitely writing down those suggestions. Girl names are so much easier than boy names. 

    @catem07 I love the name Charlotte as well but I agree it is too popular. It is such a sweet name though.
  • This is a fun game! My husband and I are keeping a running list of names. Whenever one of us (usually me - let's be honest) hears a name we like, it gets added to the list. I think girls names are the hardest! For boys, we have Kieron, Dennison, Theodore, Silas, Henry, and Lucca. For girls, we have Coralie and Maggie. I love the name Anne because I'm in love with Anne Shirley, but I don't know how I feel about it as a first name. Keep the ideas coming, anonymous internet friends!
  • So far we have Natalie Paige and Chloe Danielle. Our boy names consist of Caleb, Ethan, or Landon (Reed being the middle name after DH). Girl names are a little harder. I would love Madeline for a girl and I wanted that name for Natalie but it got vetoed the night I was in labor. So I'm trying to push it this time around since it's our last kid--this is my last chance!

  • If it's a girl she will be Evelyn Sally. Sally was his great aunt that passed away last year. She was more like a grandmother to him. If it's a boy he will named Zachary Paul. Paul was his oldest brothers middle name who also passed away from melanoma two years ago. We also agreed on the name Jameson Paul. James is my husbands middle name so it's a nod to him!

  • In our family, it is customary to give second names after the mothers of the parents, my mum is Gabriella and my mum-in-law is Claire, but they both also have second names, and they are fine too.  Problem is that the name needs to work in three languages for us because we are from different countries, living in a so far we have no first names at all!!!

    Last measurement:  3150 gs at 37+1!  This is going to be a big baby :)
  • These are great names. Love the thinking behind them. @Clementine4 ;My DD is Edith  <3

  • @belocin I love the name Cora. It's on my list for girls names.

    We're Latino and only my immediate family (plus a cousin or two) live in the US. All of DHs family is in South America along with the rest of mine. Soooo, that means we have to find a name that works well in both English and Spanish and we don't want a common Spanish name because DHs last name is common. 

    DS is Liam Piero. Liam was the only boys name neither one of us actively hated. Ugh, if it's a boy this is going to be hard.

  • DH and I pretty much have a girl's name: Emersyn (middle name is still a struggle).
    However, we don't agree on any boys names. Everything I like he has something to say about, and vice verse. So I'll just list the names I like and call it a day.  ;)
    We're team green, so I'm super excited to meet our little one and align a name to a sweet face all at once. 
  • I love the name Evelyn too, but hubs said hard pass.
    For a girl, we have Della Lynn (Della sounds good and southern and similar to the popular Bella without being Bella and Lynn was the name of the woman who practically raised me)
    For boys, we are having a harder time. We like Oscar and Maverick. I actually prefer any and all Biblical not names, but hubs vetoed every single last one of them.

  • We know the name fore sure for a girl.... Sylar Noelle. Boys names are proving much harder for us!

  • You are the sweetest @Poison&;Wine! Thank you so much! <3
  • We have been kind of playing around with some names but nothing specific. I think we will have a harder time this time around. But it may help us focus more once we find out what we are having.

    One name we like for a girl is Mila and Hayden for a boy. But we'll see. No middle names come to mind yet. H's family tradition is to give the first son the mother's maiden name for a middle name. But I'm from Europe and I have a "weird" maiden name so we'll see LOL

  • For a boy, we have George Karl after our grandfathers. For a girl we have Lillian. Still working on a middle name, but Alice (mom's middle name) and Isabelle are contenders so far.
