  • @carebear622 we do Love it! We just recently went to Waco and visited Magnolia Market and the Bakery. It was a lot of fun. We went during the "Silobration" so they had a lot of venders selling stuff.

    @djh513. Cameron James was my #1 choice for DS but DH shut that down quick
  • @zande2016 @gspmom21 thanks for the perspective- definitely feel slightly less crazy for thinking this way!

    We have the name Emilia on LOCK DOWN if it’s a girl (nickname will be Mia). DS’s name starts with an E too, we didn’t mean for it to happen but it’s happening and we’re rolling with it.

    But in my gut, I feel like I’m destined to be a boy mom so we’re going to really have to think about a boy name since I’m fresh out of boy names that me and DH can agree on.

    This is so me too!  Boy mom for lyfe. B)  And of course because we agree more on girl names, and have a hard time agreeing on boy names, we will almost certainly have another boy. 

    Names that we left over from our "maybe" list last time:

    Boy:  Benjamin, Emmett, Daniel

    Girl:  Madeline Elizabeth, Emma Claire, Brynna Jane

  • @stlmegs LOOOOOOOVE Emma, that's always been my go to name. Pairing it with Claire is cute! I'm partial to Daniel (DH name) so that one is good to :D I like all the names you came up with, good job!

    Atom Davis for a boy, for sure. I also don't think its a boy, but this was the name picked out when we were pregnant last time. Yes, I know it is a bit odd. But we picked it out over 7 years ago, so it has grown on us like a fungus. It is a popular name in california and most people won't know it is even different when they hear it.

    Girl name is Halley(pronounced like Hallie) Fae. We wanted to do a family middle name but all our family names sound horrible with this name. I thought maybe Halley Alice, but it would make for some weird initials, like HAM. DH likes the Faye spelling better, but I like Fae because its more like a fairy and since there is a Y in her first name it breaks it up.
    Love the names, but really think about the spelling. My first name is Bryana, and I constantly give my mom grief about having to spell it differently than typical Brianna's or Breonna's. It's never spelled right by coworkers or when I get mail from people. It's frustrating at times. Especially growing up having a difficult last name for people to pronounce. Only my two cents from someone with a different spelling than the typical. Kiddo is the one who will have to live with it, not you. 


    My first son is Wyatt, our angel daughter is Kali (her dad spelled it, I wanted Cali - so people would pronounce it correctly), and our angel son is Jack. 

    I really like the name Cole for a boy, we've had it picked out since we started trying again last year. My boss had a baby a few months ago and didn't learn what she was having and named her son Cole. We never talked names so I couldn't be upset that it was taken, so I am on the fence if we will use it. We cannot agree on a girl name, if we have a girl she may remain nameless up until it's time to leave the hospital as my husband vetos all the names I like. 

    We probably won't decide to find out baby's sex until we are in the ultrasound room. We are both on the fence if we want to know or keep it a surprise. Dan wont even entertain names till we know a sex typically. I got him on a good day when we came up with Cole. 
    My son is a Wyatt also! 

    for names we haven't even started to think of them yet, I think we are both just waiting for the first ultrasound to talk names

    Lol I have raved about Cameron for long enough I think he knows. He had a lottttt (more than me) of veto power with DS first name so I had to work hard to find something he liked and Edward was his brother’s middle name (he passed in 2015). So, this baby’s name is more in my court. James is a family name (both my dad and brother’s first name, among others) and Jean was my maternal grandmother’s middle name. 

    I like having two ‘C’ names and the initials CJ I think can be cute as a nickname (plus my dad’s sister’s name is Carrie Jo and he calls her CJ so he would be pleased with the CJ thing). 

    All in all, I am so set on this name. Lol. He better not veto me!!!

  • @djh513. All of those are great reasons!! I feel like he can talk say no to all that! James is a big family name for me so DH had no choice on the middle name oops! But this go around we will be using his first name as the middle name (if it's another boy) and that is going to make it tough since its so long!
  •     
  • I really love Jackson for a boy and Emilia for a girl. Though I know these probably won't stick because all previously picked names got thrown out when I got pregnant with my daughter and it took us forever to decide on a name  :#
    catftm2018
  • I literally just realized 2 of my siblings and I are Ms and 1 is a K. My middle siblings are twins and one goes by a nickname for her middle name, so they were always T and K and my brother and I were Ms. 
  •     
  • Last time was so easy. We had our sons name picked from conception and I knew it was a boy right away! We couldn’t even agree on a hypothetical girls name, good thing we didn’t have to. This time we also have our boy name picked but I’m feeling girl. It’s going to be a lot harder this time. My husband wants to incorporate his family’s names but I’m going to fight that to the end. He does get the last name after all.

    What did you choose to go with James?

    And what is the middle name you’d be working with this time? Just curious!

  • Loving all the names so far.. 

    with our first we were so set on a boy name and a girl name but it was a boy so we have Grayson (after robin) dirk (after our local b-ball player). After he was born I decided I didn’t want the girl name anymore and we decided on Remi boy or girl next time 

    so boy it will be Remi..... we are undecided in middle name because our last name is Martinez but we have super white kids and I don’t want it to sound weird with martinez

    Hahaha we have a dog Remington too! He’s a more substantial coonhound/lab mix tho

    my children both have names on the top dog names list though so I can’t knock names at all.

  • I've kept our list from baby number 1, so it's been easy to keep the list short & narrowed down!

    Girl: Charlotte, Evelyn, Maren
    Boy: Henry or Jack

    No matter what we have, the middle name will be Lee. That's my middle name and it's also both my mom and dad's middle names too, so I want to pass that on!

  • @CareBear622 I love Dr. Carter and I think he is an awesome character to name someone after!
    I don't know if it will push you towards or away from Harper but there was actually a character on ER named Harper, and she dated Carter.
    I may also be planning on naming my kid after a character on TV in the 90s, and I can't wait until she sees the show and understands why I gave her this name.

  • Not sure on a boy name yet. Dh wants to go western again. DS is Wyatt. For girl we want to honor DH grandma with Agnis so maybe Agnis Rose.

    There is a couple of us who have Wyatt’s! We were thinking Western too, but can’t agree on any girl names. I really like Allison and my grandmothers name is Emma so I’d love to name her either of those, but Emma is too popular for my husband. I’m not even sure if those girl names would be western. We have Cole picked out for a boy.

  • @bdesterhouse HD has Allison and Cole in his fam. I like Cole and Emma. We want to go with uncommon or old names. Both of my names are pretty uncommon and love it!

  • My husband's family always names their first born sons Robert W, and usually go by the middle name, so if it's a boy, my husbamd wants Wolfgang, lol. I don't know if I can hang with that. I prefer William.

    For a girl, we were discussing Amelia a long time ago since it would sort of go well with my daughter's name

    We both like Juliet or Charolette for a girl.. No boys names yet except for maybe Charlie.. He wants Carl III, but I'm not sure about that! Lol

    Names that I like but he vetoed- girls.. Lyla, Claire, Mercy, Ella, Elodie& Kenzie. Boys.. Remington, Asher, Warren& Wilder
  • The only name DH has agreed on from any of my lists is Hayden. Literally the only name. I guess it's a bonus that it's unisex?

    My husbands good friend is Carlton the 3rd and his son is Carlton the 4th. My husbands friend goes by Trey (for 3) and his son goes by IV(I-V). I think the nick names are cute.

    I love the name Wolfgang. My husband and are both Getman decedents and I asked if we could do that name and my husband said no we aren’t in Germany, he could get made fun of. I think he’s wrong. I went to school with a boy named Storm and knew a girl named stormy. They didn’t get made fun of.
