  • My kids keep goofy suggesting random names (some of which are objects) but earlier as we were watching Hotel Transylvania they said we should name our baby Mavis. I don't hate it.

    I ADORE Mavis but DH can't stand it and it breaks my heart. I saw it on the movie Young Adult with Charlize Theron, which isn't a character I want to name a kid after, but I loved how it was classic yet edgy.

  • DH won't talk girl names with me and it's really bugging me. He insists its a boy so won't entertain any girl names. I'm trying to let it go, but I've always been a name nerd from like, 6 years old I would use my allowance to buy baby name books in the check out at the grocery store. The thing is, it feels like another girl to me (not that it means anything, but I had strong feelings with my other two). Anyway, so pardon as I geek out over names on here that DH doesn't listen to.

  • I'm +1 for River. Husband doesn't hate it, and I've loved it forever for a girl. Thanks, Firefly. Buuut it doesn't go great with siblings Carter and Jack. Also, Kelly Clarkson used it pretty recently (a neutral point for me, but something to consider) @bdesterhouse @Gretchypoo

  • Here is the list of baby girl names I made today while I was totally working... M/N would be Josephine, Joy, or Judea depending on what sounded better.
    • Mara
    • Tana (not sure if this is too 90's)
    • Lenore or Leona 
    • Sybil (love the nn Sibby)
    • Ingrid or Inga (love Inga more but think DH would like Ingrid more)
    • Anika
    • Reina/Reine I like the Reine spelling more, but US pronunciation changes it to 1 syllable to sound like Rain/"rhyne"
    • Alma
    • Jocelyn really like this name but I had a friend with a similar name (add an a to the end) in HS and not that I don't like her, I just don't want to think of her every time I say/write my baby's name
    • Circe- If I could pick a name today to say "this is it" it would be Circe, but DH is very luke-warm, actually more like melted ice cream about this name
    • Hilde- My number 2 choice right now, but don't like the association with Hillary
    • Abilene - Love the biblical roots-ish, don't want to go with nn Abby
    • Agnes - Adore this name, but see my comment about Circe
    • Sylvie/Sylvia- I like Sylvie, DH says that isn't a real name, but for some reason I really do not care for Sylvia
    • Sable- newly added to the list today... too trendy?
    • Fara/Farrah/whatever the proper spelling of this is, did Teen Mom ruin it?
    • Miri/Miriam- Same as Sylvie/Sylvia: I would go with Miri in a heartbeat, DH says its not a proper name and would want to do Miriam

  • @peachesnbean I really like Mara, Sybil, and Jocelyn.  Nice list!

    H finally gave me two boy names to consider: Dominic and Myles.  I like either, but probably like Myles a bit better.  MN will be Paul.

    @turtlemobile2 Gus is our front runner for a boy right now (short for Gustav - the first of my husband's family to immigrate to America) - everyone we've mentioned it to has loved it, but all said they would definitely call him Gus Gus like the mouse in Cinderella. lol. So I have to decide if we can live with that. 

    Philippa is our favorite for a girl right now. She could go by Pippa if Philippa seems too formal for her as a LO, and my husband is dead set on calling her Phil around the house. lol.

  • @bcoon42 before I even finished reading your sentence I said awe Gus Gus. I think it's adorable, and he would even be able to go by Gustav if he didn't like being called Gus or Gus Gus when he's older.

    My DD has a name that isn't very popular and I'd like to stick to that. We have 3 names that we like for girls and literally no boy names picked out. I'm just not drawn to boys names, the ones I like are pretty popular, so I just don't have fun thinking about them. 
    My choices for girls names I like:
    Tessa (I think this goes best with my DD's name, both 2 syllable "T" names and our last name is also a T. H isn't sold on it yet though) 
    Kennedy  (we'd call her Kenny after my dad. and it's a surname so it also matches with DD's)
    and 
    Leonia (after H's grandma who just passed, we'd probably call her Leo but not sure it goes with DD's name at all)

    middle name choices are Therese (pronounced Ter-ez) Mae, or Marie  all family names. 

  • Don't know the sex yet but ... 

    Ezra if it's a boy 
    Aria if it's a girl 

    (totally wasn't based off of PLL btw but somehow ended up with two names from the show )

  • I really want to name him Gus, but no one, NO ONE is on board with that so I haven't any clue where to go from there. :)
    I actually really liked Gus for a boy name but DH says no way.

    Are you sure you aren't drawn to boy names?  Of the 3 girl names you listed the nickname you plan to use for 2 of them is more boy than girl (and one is even intentionally after your dad- a boy).   :)

    Is it weird that I've never considered whether potential names go with the siblings?

    I don't consider whether they "go," but only whether they "go" too much. I think too similar is weird. DS's name ends in -on, so we wouldn't do a name with -on or -en. Too cutesy for me. 

    Fun fact: I once taught identical twins named Chris and Christopher. And B/G twins named Daniel and Danielle.

    My nn is a boys name too.  I guess it does seem silly to say I don't like most boys names, but I don't like Kenneth or Leonard for boys so I wouldn't use them. I worded that wrong since I like more traditional boy names (David, Eli, Josh etc) I just don't have as much fun finding boys names. 
    I don't think it's weird to not think about how names go together, I don't search out names that go well with DD's but when I like a name I do think about how it goes with hers.  It's really not important that they go well but I wouldn't want them to sound too similar or be confusing together. 


  • @peachesnbean I like Farrah too but didn't like it enough to outweigh other names we had picked. But unfortunately to me Farrah Abraham is who people will think about, with her controversial ways. I still personally think about Farrah Fawcett though the most!! It could be an age thing though where younger people think of teen mom instead of Charlie's angels lol. 

    @MommaBean I used to be friends with identical twins girls named Mandy and Melanie.

    Yeah, it isn't my top choice  on that list, but DH isn't very agreeable to much of anything so it is one that would grow on me. Like I said, if I had my way right now it would be Circe. I feel like it fits our family and goes really well with our girls' spunky names. Nadia was on the list and I still like it but I feel like it isn't spunky enough. I like my girls' names as feminine and spunky.

    Ugh, for the last few years, I've had a family of boys whose names were all Christopher.  Three boys and their father.  All named Christopher.  They had a really common last name, too, so they were not the only Christopher [name]s we ever had.  It got REALLY bad when one of them stole a teacher's cell phone and wallet the year before last - dealing with the paperwork and the police was a nightmare.

    @peachesnbean I really like Farrah! We actually just interviewed a day care provider whose name was Farrah and I definitely thought Fawcett, not Abraham (28 here, so *kind* of in the Teen Mom Demographic). Actually, Circe for me is the one with stronger connotations - definitely makes me think of Game of Thrones, even if its spelled differently. But it's a lovely name that certainly predates HBO. :)

    I love Tessa and wanted it but then my mom reminded me our close family friends had a dog named Tessa and it ruined it for me. I think it's still beautiful though!

    I'm dead set on Tessa for a girl but haven't even mentioned names to DH yet. That's funny about the dog though bdesterhouse!

  • Tessa has always been one of my favorites. I feel like every Tessa I know is beautiful and sweet. We are still looking for a biblical name though. With me being Sarah, My  DH Joseph and DS Peter I just feel like it's only right. 
    We have narrowed the list down to Eli, Samuel and Philip for boys. Leah, Rachel, Elizabeth (Ellie) for girls. We also like Evangeline (Eva). We have plenty of time but I can't stand not having somewhat of an idea what we are going with.

  • @MrsLittleMac I love the name Declan- but DH said no.

    Our DDs are Harper Kay and Stella Anne... Right now we have a pretty long list but my favorite for a girl is Lennon and Campbell (I think the mn will be Jane after MILs mn); and boys are Ford, Rhys, and Kingston- we are 99% sure that we're using DHs name for DS MN (Christopher) so I feel like the first name needs to be short.

  • We haven't really discussed names too much yet but it seems like my fiancé likes more traditional names, unfortunately. For girls I like Mackenzie or maybe McKenna, I like Savannah but fiancé hates it so I'd consider Hannah, and Natalie. For boys I love Carter but fiancé hates it :(. I also like Sawyer, Logan, Luca, Carson.
  • @Sarah1253 what about Teresa and nn Tessa?

    I've never heard of Circe before. I keep randomly saying the boy name I like to husband. I'm hoping that it grows on him during these months, and if we have a boy, maybe he'll go with it lol
