Re: What names are you thinking of??

Just to clarify I wasn't trying to be rude or anything to ppl who don't want to share to each his own and I can understand how some ppl don't want to share.

We like uncommon names and I do look at how popular a name is before picking it. If it's too popular for me, my DH says if it's in the top 300 that's too popular for me LOL, then I won't consider it.

One weird thing that happened though. When we were pregnant with DD our top 2 names were Anastasia and Ophelia. She was going to be Anastasia Ophelia but when Pope John Paul passed we decided to honor him in the middle name instead. I was on a lot of message boards for Ontario moms and Canadian moms and was sharing my names, most HATED Ophelia BTW.

Then our paper in Jan had the baby section which comes out every year with the pics and details of the years babies, it's a HUGE 8 page section. So I was browsing it our DD was not in it we didn't put her in there. I was sooo pleased that by the last page there were NO Anastasia's. Then I get to the last couple on the last page and there is a little girl bron after DD named ANASTASIA OPHELIA.

I seriously almost died. LOL

I would have thought I would have been disappointed that someone had used "my name" but my rection was "Oh MY Gosh I have to meet this woman because she has the EXACT same taste as me and it's not like either names are popular at all."

I still would LOVE to meet her.

We have nothing even close to being set in stone. Some of the names he or I like are:

Grace
Anne
Camille
Brie
Kathryn(Kate)
Alyssa
Madeline
Brenlei
Rose(as a middle name)


Again, most of those are either he or I...not "us"

I like Ruby Texas, but DH (and most other people, I will admit) hates it, so I am thinking Ruby Kennedy.

I *love* Ruby. I'll probably never use it though because I grew up around my cousin's great grandma named Ruby. She had like 20 cats and smoked like 3 packs of those brown cigarettes a day. LOL

Re: What names are you thinking of??

how funny that you like Cassandra and Patrick too!

IF this baby is a girl, she will be named Cassandra LeAnn, and for a boy, Samuel Patrick!!!

I love Lillian too, but dh wasn't feeling it! Good luck, and one day something will just stand out to you, and that'll be it!!!

Other names I like but are more common so will probably be middle names one day:
Chelsea
Audrey
Victoria (after my sister, my friend, and DH's friend )
Claire (my aunt and sister's middle name, and of course Claire from Lost LOL)

For a boy... I like Ender. But I can't really think of any more right now. I wish I could find my baby name book, I had a list of all our favs from when I was PG with Bram.
I love your son's name but for some reason I really want to put an h in there lol Brahm. :giggles: maybe I'll steal that if we ever have a boy
