River for a boy. Thinking River could also work for a girl, but I just can’t picture using it for that purpose. Have no idea for girl names. I like Amelie but my bf doesn’t like it, he said “I don’t want to name her after that goofy movie” lol. He likes Charlotte(His first name is Charles but he goes by his middle name), so I think that’s cool because they would have the same first and last initial. Idk. It’s so hard! I love seeing everyone’s names!
Love browsing this thread to see everyone's names! Here's what I'm thinking: Boys: Finnley, but not 100% set on this. Anyone have any boy "ley" names they can suggest? Girls: Torn between Hadley or Waverly
My 5yo has requested that if "his baby" is a boy, we name it Gunter. After the pig in the movie Sing. So that's our front runner right now, as we literally don't even want to breech the subject. lol.
Me: 33, DH: 37Married: May 2006The Bean: Born April 2014Formerly BiggerinRealLife on April14
I still have, like, 20 for each sex. I don't know how we're going to narrow it down.
Hello! I was lurking till I got the result of my second beta on today, but like @peytonpedro I’m going there. @acunamatada We like the name Calliope so much that we named our fur child that! DH’s family tradition is to name their dogs after characters in Greek mythology. We thought we might shorten it to Calli(e) but never did. She’s beautiful (yes we’re totally biased) and we are SO in love with this dog (a very sweet, leggy dobie/ridgeback mix - we rescued her 6 mos ago today). Although some nights we wonder if she’s so vocal (she’s really not unless another dog gets her going) because we named her Calliope. I hope this isn’t offensive ‘cause I certainly don’t mean it to be - growing up I knew of a dog who had my nickname phonetically and didn’t think much of it.It feels a little early for us to think about names - but we *TW* lost a girl with our last pregnancy, so I have a first name to which I’m partial in mind (I am a dork and like the Harry Potter-style alliteration) - we have a T last name and DH’s dad is Welsh. This one is also a girl per PGS testing - but DH doesn’t want to know the gender till like 20 weeks (okay I just picked a number - but just...now now), so we won’t be having this discussion any time soon if he has his way. All the kids in DH’s family also have four names - so I’ll probably campaign to make my family name the second middle name.
So after having 2 wonderful boys (Chris and Rory), we found out today that we’re having another boy! We have a few girls names but zero boys names left! We like to name kids after family members and we’re at a complete loss. Why is this so hard?!
