Re: Names

DH thinks he's decided on a name. I got to name DD with him getting to choose how to spell it, so he gets to choose DS's name. We don't tell names until birth. I will say that the first name is fairly common but not overly so, and the middle name will be the same as DH's. It was also his paternal grandfather's middle name, so he'll be the 3rd generation out of 4 to have it.

In that sense, his name will mirror DD's, as her middle name (Jolie) was a merging of my parents' middle names. Since they both got their middle names from their parents, I picked back up on the tradition that my parents sidestepped with me. She's the 3rd generation out of 4 on both sides to have inherited the middle name.

Re: Names

SassyMomma27 - That's why we don't tell the name we pick out before the baby is born. People seem less likely to make comments about it once they know your kid is "stuck" with the name! Or at least, they make nicer comments about it.

My friend just named her baby this. I love it.

DH and I haven't even seriously begun discussing names yet. And we'll need 2 names since we aren't finding out gender. I told him this month is when we will sit down and pick a few, but we aren't letting anyone know until after baby is born.

Grace is classic. Probably one of the top middle names of all time! Would go perfectly!

I personally like Rose. my granny was named rose.

Re: Names

I can't think of a good name for our boy.
My husband just wants to name him Michael, like himself, but I'm not into that. What do you all think for a boy name. I would like not too common.
Middle name will be Magnuson.

My best friend just named her baby that. However, they spelled it more phonetically, since they were worried it would be too difficult: Avenly.

Her middle name is Eowyn. Not easy to pronounce or spell, ironically.
