Re: Names?

FUN thread!

Ryan and I haven't even DISCUSSED names.

I like Tyler though. But that's so far the only list I have on my list. Who knows what Ryan thinks about it. I have a feeling picking a name with him will be difficult as his response to everything is "I don't know". sigh.

Re: Names?

DH won't talk about names until we find out the sex so obviously we're nowhere near deciding . I do really like Audrina and Scarlett for a girl though. But who knows, DH will probably hate them if I like them . I also really like Paisley, but somebody else in my tiny town just had a baby girl and named her Paisley so I think that's probably out. If we have a boy, I honestly have no idea. Boy names are so hard.

Same here. Except my husband is Argentine. And we live in Argentina so we need to use Spanish names/spelling that sound okay in English. Lucia Eliza is def our girls name but for a boy name, Im kinda hating all the Spanish English names. I'm okay with Nico/Nicolas. And Benjamin. The later having been "called" by a friend but she's having a girl so her problem. But I doubt dh is okay with any of those boy names. He wants Ramon but I don't want to mispronounce my own kids name and Ramon starts with a rolled r and I can't consistently do that.

And in real life, I won't share before birth but I don't care about ds. I have a horrifically difficult to spell and pronounce last name and I think that cured me from ever wanting unique names for my kids. I want them to have names that don't have to be spelled out/ pronunciation corrected all the time. Not the top 10 but common enough to prevent them from having their names slaughtered on a daily basis.

I really like names that mean something to us. I remember the day we found out I was pregnant with our first. We were both in shock, scared out of our minds but also super giddy. We were riding on the subway going from Brooklyn to manhattan and my husband said "if it's a girl we should name her Brooklyn." and so it was. It just seemed so perfect. We had fallen in love in Brooklyn and found out about her in Brooklyn. I guess I'm wishing that it was as effortless and whimsical this time around as it was then.

Re: Names?

Aw, cute names! I have so many different names floating in my head...not sure at all.

With boys we go for Biblical/Hebrew and meaning. Our short list is: Josiah, Levi, Asher, Samuel, Ari and Noah

For girl names, many I like are common...but not really common here: Olivia (really not popular here...but still), Isley, Lilinoe (hawaiian and pronounced lily-noy), Liliana, Averie, and Lila
