Re: Have you picked out names?

  • No clue! I like unique, husband doesn't. It's usually a battle until 9 mo :)

  • It takes us forever to decide on names. I have just started playing around. Boys: Collin, Alexander, Jackson, or Noah...none of them I absolutely love though. Girls: Adelyn or Emma Kate but again not 100%. I hope to find out the gender within the next 4 weeks.

  • @tealowl you keep giving examples of people you know that "turned out fine". You do realize that there is research to support the fact that giving your child a stripper name or one that defies phonics put them at a disadvantage when they are older for a myriad of reasons, right? Like actual research - not "I knew someone who smoked throughout pregnancy/is named something embarrassing and they turned out great!"


    You don't need to quote 'turned out fine'. Because they literally did.

    Yes, I'm well aware that the job world is racist and some places will choose a John over a Tyreese.

    However, I gave examples that show it's not always the case...because it's not always the case.

    "Your truth is different from my truth, and we're both right."

    TTC since March 2013. BFP 4/13/13, blighted ovum discovered 6/6/13, m/c 6/8/13.

    BFP 11/10/13, EDD 7/25/13 - stick little owlet!

  • Nothing to do with race. My point really is that you actually have no idea if everything was fine for them. How many people passed them up for jobs? Or treated them like they were less educated.

    Sure, outside looking in, they both have jobs despite their names. All I am saying is that it puts your child at an immediate disadvantage, and that is actually backed up with real research.

    Same thing with smoking during pregnancy. The kids look "fine" now, but you have no idea what damage you've done until they are adults and don't suffer from allergies, asthma, etc.

    Are you going to stop wearing your seatbelt because your parents weren't required to and they didn't die in a car accident?

  • Our girl is for sure Arabella Anne. I heard Arabella in a movie but like it because it's a modern twist on my great-grandmothers name "Belle". Anne is a family middle name: grandmother, mother, mother in law, and sister in law all have Ann as a middle name. But, because of a certain book/movie I think Anne should be spelled with an E. :-)

    I am so stuck on boy names. I have a list of four or five but don't love any of them.

    Wow, sad to say. A lot of these names are HORRIBLE, not modern and not unique at all! They're common and ..... Just horrible. %-( poor babies
    Why yes, I'd love naming advice from someone whose screenname reminds me of a feminine hygiene product!
