July 2017 baby name ideas

Re: July 2017 baby name ideas

  • I am so lost on boy names....DH and I had 100% chosen a girl name (Danica), so of course this minion is a boy. I find our super short last name makes it that much more complicated. 

    Our daughter is Norah - I like common but not super popular. But all the older boy names still sound so stuffy to me, or not stuffy ones are in the Top 10 lists.

  • I'm thinking any time time the SSA will release the top US names of 2016!!! It's normally in the Spring. 
  • @mslynn2012 - yeah i probably wouldn't use it either. if it was a coworker or an ex bf or an old friend you no longer keep in touch with? okay sure. but i probably wouldn't only because you were once married to the guy.

  • We are huge Yankee fans and I actually like the name Derek. But when I mentioned it to DH he asked if LO would be called #2 because he is our second child. He totally called me out and siad we're not naming or kid after someone I have had a crush on since 1995! In Stephanie Tanner's words "how rude." Back to the drawing board for us! (I think it was the step too far when I suggested "Derek Peter Lastname")

    @satsumasandlemons does your daughter like the movie despicable me? I know one of the girls is named Margot - maybe she'd warm up to it that way. 

    I love the name too, one of my favorite bloggers (back in the day) named her two daughters Margot and Leta and I adored both names 





  • Thank you to everyone who helped with names that have 'Lee' sound in them. I honestly couldn't think of any when put on the spot. 

    Keep them coming if you have more?!?!?! 

    Cant use:
    Sally,
    Lily(or any version of the name)
    Carley
    Bailey 

  • @oheliza44 My sister's boys are named after country music singers, so we've always joked we will use the hip hop names...
    So just don't try to take my Waka Flocka!

    Analeigh
    Marilee (like "merrily")
    Liara 
    Lorilee
    Leisha
    Briley

    And of course you could modify the spelling of any of these depending on preference. 

  • We had a boy name picked out and this one is a girl, of course that's how it would work right? So during our A/S when she said that babe was definitely a girl apparently we both had the same name come to mind, Emma. Unfortunately we both don't want a super popular name and Emma is exactly that. I'm not sure how much of a deal breaker that is for us. We're sticking with it for now and trying to figure out middle names. We like traditional names, I've thrown around Michelle and Christine and Leah/Lee/Leigh.

    @satsumasandlemons maybe Margo will grow on him? I like it. I love Olivia but it's super popular right now. I honestly hate Neveah (sorry if anyone has used it or is using it). I just think it's so cliche. 

    What about Rosealie?
    I'm hoping Margot will grow on her- It's DD, not DH, who has a problem with it, lol. Also, lesson learned - we're not going to suggest names for her approval anymore! 

    I am SO not a fan of Neveah, either. That was the ultimate horrible name on TB back when I was pregnant with DD in 2011 and I have never met or heard of any Neveah's IRL - until DD started TK, and now she's all about it.

    I do like Rosalind as in As You Like It, but I'm not really into "Rose" as a root. 

    Anyone like Elliott for a girl? That's always been our boy name - like, the only name we ever really had for a possible boy. Would it be weird if we named a girl that? We would either nn Lottie or Ellie (I'm hoping Lottie sticks, because Ellie is so common)

  • @satsumasandlemons I love Olivia (my husband nixed it).  I don't lurve Elliott for a girl but you could roll with it I don't think it raises any eyebrows - and I love the potential shortened Ellie.  Lottie is supercute too!  

    @LoveLee85
    We are hovering over Elyse and Elisa right now for a girl (Ellie for short).  Do you like either of those?  (Husband's favorite is Charlotte now - how about Charlize?) 

    Our agreed upon backup from last pregnancy for a girl is Lucille - to call her Lucy.  My concern is that the sibset Lucas + Lucy is too close - I may mess up every time I try to call one of them lol!  Thoughts?

    @satsumasandlemons I generally can go either way on boy names for girls, but I think Elliott (and Ellie and Lottie) is cute. I would just add that I think it's becoming a very popular boy name. Two of the eight kids in my son's daycare class are named Elliott. At first all I could think of was stabler from law and order svu, but now I think it's really cute. 
  • @satsumasandlemons, I LOVE Lottie. I feel like it has that classic, vintage feel that you're looking for while being uncommon enough to not evoke the image of an octogenarian. And to have Elliott be the full name is an excellent way of using a name you love, since you like how it shortens. If you're worried about it being overly common or masculine, adding an "e" to the end would feminize it without altering it too drastically, I think, but it's very on trend to use names that are perhaps not the standard gender-stereotyped names, so it works either way. Regardless, I really, really like Lottie.

    @satsumasandlemons I like Elliott for either boy or girl! One of my favorite tv characters ever is Dr. Elliott Reid from Scrubs :)
    plus Ellie is a great nickname

  • After finding out we were having a boy, we have it narrowed down to 2. No middle name picked yet. 

    Jax (or maybe Jaxon)
    Jameson (would call him Jamie)
  • @hyperangel_8509 since our girl name for this LO is Norah, I will share our (short) boy list in the hopes it might help you!!

    Nolan
    Grant
    Elliott
    DH also likes Liam but I think it's too common and sounds goofy with our last name

    @sakeefer, Emma Christine is lovely!

    @satsumasandlemons, not to pee in the punch bowl or anything... but Elliott is such an awesome boy's name, I can't picture it for a girl. Lottie is super cute but really is best on it's own or as a shortened version of Charlotte. Doesn't really make sense as a nickname for Elliott, IMO. If you know you're going to call her Elle, Ellie or Lottie for short then why not just use one of those names as her full name? 

    ETA: Margot is fantastic! I wouldn't let your daughter's opinion sway you... you're the parent. She'll either learn to love it or get used to it once little sister is here.

    DH is all for the name Gwendolyn, but I'm now not sure. Our second daughter is Evelynn and I feel weird having two girls with "lyn" in their names while my oldest daughter doesn't.  It also kinda bothers me that one is "lynn" and the other is "lyn". I'm leaning more to just having Gwen as the name,  but DH doesn't like that idea

  • @lamphele What about Gwenevere?

  • So today again FIL expressed his extreme dislike for our top boy name. I have no problem naming the child the name I just don't EVER want to hear FIL say anything to the child about it, and I don't trust that it will not happen. FIL is great, he just has many opinions and is very vocal about them.

    My cousin is 27 years old, and our grandmother continues to call her the wrong name. Last visit she said, "I'm sorry. I have just never understood your name." So awkward!! Grandma and my cousin have a fantastic relationship, so cousin just laughed. 

    That is very Dear Diary, but maybe your son and his grandfather will have that type of thing - so it will be ok even if FIL acts like an idiot about it. 

    FWIW I like Connor and think it goes fine with DD's name, but what do I know
  • We just told my grandmother we're having a girl and plan to name her Mia and she looked at me and said "oh god, why Mia?! I would never name my child Mia." Literally ANY name we come up with she has some answer if it's not a very common and traditional name. It's so hard to not let people get in your head. But this is exactly why we don't announce the names on social media or to anyone except immediate family because you'll get everyone's opinions and it may sway yours.

    @nktrodden826 keep your name of choice, I don't think it sways me but it definitely upsets me, I want my close ones to be happy and like the name, I'm trying to convince my mum right now too she's half way there lol. Don't worry about your grandma.

  • My mother's response to Maura was, "I just can't be excited about that name" followed by the suggestion that we choose something more feminine/fabulous for a middle name.  She then continued to suggest names that I hate, so I made sure to tell her how much I hated those names.  I also call my daughter Maura all the time.  It's grown on her, and she seems to have caught the hint that she was an ass.

  • @chiquita928 My mom hates our name choice too, mostly because we plan on nicknaming her Mickie (DD's nickname is Evie) and she says it reminds her of Mickey Mouse.

    So don't call her by her nickname!!

    Luckily she likes the full name so that's what I keep remind her IS the name, but family can be so annoying. It's like they think they get some say in it...

  • @GlitterFish this is going to sound a little crazy but does your sister live in NC? One of my neighbors has 3 boys all named after country singers which I thought was so unique!
