Re: Names that DIDN'T make the cut??

DD1 would have been Noah David if she'd been a boy. No other names were really considered. Then my cousin lost their baby just before we found out DD1 was a girl and named him Noah, so it was sad, but it worked out. She is named after my Grandma Rosie, so that was concrete if she was a girl.

DD2 we had a terrible time with names. I had no serious contenders that we both agreed on that I can remember other than what we named her. If she had been a boy, she would have been Elijah David, but then my cousin had a baby a few months before her and named him Elijah David (we had no idea they were considering it, and they didn't know we were!)

This baby was almost named Amelia, then we decided on Miriam, then we changed our minds AGAIN to Olivia. If she had been a boy, she would have been Benjamin Brooks.

For DD we had Macintosh, Grayson, Simon, and Elliott, for boys names, and Moira, Isla, Claira and Julianna.
This time around we had Oliver, Arthur, and Marida that didn't make the cut.

We are naming this little girl Aspen Elyse. The only other name on the list was Emersyn Elyse and we decided we loved Aspen more Had she been a boy, she would have been named Oakley Jaxon.

We went into the hospital loving the name Grant Thomas, but he didn't look like a Grant. The hospital lists the time of birth on the bracelets as TOB. DH looked at it and said, "What about Tobin?" We left the hospital with a Tobin Richard

With dd I loved the name Fiona. I wanted to name her Fiona Lavera (great grandma who I look just like :P) and he was okay with it till someone told him if he didn't like it he should say something. So he did lol

Then with ds I wanted to name him Levi and again dh said okay and then said no he didn't like it because our last name starts with L. Lol

Girl names that DH rejected were Addalyn and Addison. Boy names that DH rejected were Elijah (this has been my favorite boy name for many years...it has become too popular for my tastes though), Thomas, Rylan and Benjamin.
