Also for a boy, DS 1 was almost Noah. Had that happened, DD would have been Natalie and YDS would be Nathan.... all names I love!

ETA Scarlett is beautiful. I think it would be a gorgeous name.
LOL don't worry all of my kids have 3 letter first names so IKWYM. The one name we would have loved to use is Axl but this one is our last and is supposedly a girl. The one middle name I really wanted to use for this one was Aracelie but DH vetoed it for some reason.

Chloe (friend took it)
Annette for a middle name (after being with hubby for 5 years i found out this is his mothers and sisters middle name and he didnt want that for ours DOH)
Remington Gauge (hubby said it sounds like a dogs name)
Roseline (again DH didnt like it)

I also like names like Lily, willow, etc but DH nixed them all too

Eva that's so pretty for a middle name though! I wish he would reconsider. I love original names. I'm just too scared to branch out....

Re: what baby name were you really wanting to use, but couldn't?

I really anticipated on having Italian children, so my names were fairly traditional. Names like Francesca, Giuseppe, Grazia, Pompeo, etc. But SO's last name is German - Wagner, so immediately all Italian names got tossed out the window. I mean Giuseppe Wagner just sounds ugly.

I chose the name Mabel for our DD, and SO is under a deep delusion that he gets to "name the next one." I told him yes, you get to give the last name, and I'll get to choose the first name. Seems fair, no???

Re: what baby name were you really wanting to use, but couldn't?

Cecilia or Cecily for a girl (clashes with our last name)

Seraphina for a girl as well but it's too close to sil's name and I know that her and my mil would tell everyone that my child was named after her and thats NOT going to happen!

Tzol for a boy or Saul. Dh hates it!

I wanted Julia, but with our last name she's be a famous actress, I also wanted Ruby, but again the last name made it sounds strange with first and last starting with R.
