Need honest opinions...

My husband and I are going to try and keep our pregnancy a secret until I start showing, but I'm getting antsy for name opinions. We have an 18 month old named Everett and we like older sounding names.

Let me know what you think...
Girl options
Oakley
or
Emrey

Boy options
Oliver
or
Bennett

Re: Need honest opinions...

  • Yea I'm not too sure on the girl names either...any girl name suggestions?
  • We were also thinking about Barrett for a boy
  • I like Emery/Emory for a girl.

    I like both boy names, but think Oliver is a little less matchy.

  • Emerson is cute maybe call her Emmy for short
  • Oliver for the boy, and the suggestions from other posters for the girl. I really don't like your girl names and don't find them "older sounding". Not trying to be rude just honest as you asked for. Of the girl suggestions above, my favorites are:
    Audra
    Corinne
    Phoebe
    Clara

    Adding suggestions:
    Audrey
    Rosalind
    Amelia
    Florence



  • I like the girl suggestions! I'm just having a hard time picking one or two that I absolutely love
  • oliver
    and another girl name


  • Oliver is good. Everything else not so much.

    Bennett can be a girls name as well and I prefer it as one personally.
  • Love Oliver. Bennett is okay but it's a bit matchy with Everett.

    Agree about the girl names, a lot of people gave nice suggestions!

  • For boy I love Oliver. Everett and Bennett are very similar to me. The girls names are honestly not very good.

    Everett and Adelaide
    Everett and Willa
    Everett and Rosalie
    Everett and Calista
    Everett and Mila
    Everett and Laila
    Everett and Gemma
    Everett and Natalia
    Everett and Michaela
    Everett and Alena
  • I like the boys names but would choose Oliver as it's less matchy.

    No human, especially a girl should be named Oakley. Sorry. Emery or Emry is ok. Emrey is spelled wrong..

  • There have been some very good girl name suggestions. I'm behind a lot of them except for Emerson, because I don't think girls should have names that basically mean 'son of...'. I like @bbiutmcph list, its got a lot of good choices on it (the other lists do too, that is just my favorite list). Of your boy names, Oliver is my choice.

  • Oakley is a sunglasses brand.  It just sounds weird to use as a first name.  It's like naming your child Cheerio or Mazda.

    Emrey seems like it's misspelled or made up.  You could use Emory like the university or Emery like the nail file, but both of those are kind of weird as well.

    Both boy names are fine.  I say keep thinking of girl names.

  • I think Emery definitely over Emrey. Emrey looks like it is misspelled, agree with PP's.

  • Oliver is one of my favorites that DH has permanently vetoed, so that gets my vote! I think it goes great with Everett too. I'd avoid another boy name ending in t.

    Oakley . . . might as well use Annie Oakley, because that's all I can think of. Emery is a man's name and the only Emery I've known is a very grumpy old man. I would hate to see that name stuck on a sweet baby girl! :(

    It's a boy! Born 42 weeks, 2 days.

  • I like both boy names but not a fan of either girl name. What about Everly or Evelyn?
