What do you think of my baby names?

All my other children were easy to name. For some reason, dh and I can't agree on this baby's name!!! We're pretty much set on a girls name, but it's the boy's name we're disagreeing on. Just thought I'd see what everyone thought of what we are thinking....

For a girl, we are thinking Emery Michelle. My dh saw the name Emery on a road sign (he's a truck driver). He's been dead set on Emery ever since. My middle name is Michelle, so that's where that came from. Emery is a boy's name according to all the baby name books, but, oh well.

For a boy, we're struggling. He wants to name him Tanner. I *like* Tanner, but I'd rather that be his middle name. I really like the name Waylon Tanner. That's my first choice. We've also discussed Nelson, Braxton, Dallas and Eli.

Anyone have any input? I won't be upset if you don't like my favorite name! Just tell me what you think.

Re: What do you think of my baby names?

I like the girls name but I'm not too crazy about Waylon. I do like Tanner tho.
In the end, its your kid so it doesn't matter what I think!!

I think Emery is fine--it's more girly with the e instead of the o, imo. I always liked Ellery for a girl.
I'm not crazy about waylon, either. It reminds me of an old country singer. I like Eli or Tanner.

Re: What do you think of my baby names?

Although I like the ring of Emery Michelle, I am not a fan of "boy" names on girls.

Don't like Waylon. I do like Tanner, Dallas and Eli though.

Good Luck!

To be honest, I don't care for Emery. It's rather masculine for a little girl, and it's also a surname if spelled with an "o" rather than and "e" before the "r". Michelle is pretty, though.

I can't say I like Waylon, either. It just conjures an image of a banjo playing man with straw in his mouth. But, thats probably because I live i the deep south and thats how it is here (lol). Tanner I love, though. I heard this only recently, but it's growing on me!
Our of your other boy names, I really like Eli and Nelson. Braxton reminds me too much of Braxton Hicks Contractions, and I dont think cities/states or countries make good names (Dallas).
I think Eli Tanner is AWESOME!

Re: What do you think of my baby names?

Hmmm, I am not sure what I really think about Emery...reminds me of a nail file...an emery board...sorry... How about Emmy Michelle...it is close...but feminine? Or Emma and he can call her Emmy or whatever..lol

I love Waylon, that was on my list too...and Braxton.

I knew a girl Emery growing up, but I can't remember how she spelled it. I never thought it was strange.

Re: What do you think of my baby names?

I honestly don't like either much, but it's your choice ... I think Emery is so much more girly and pretty if you add an "L" like "Emerly" so that's my unique vote

As for a boy... I just can't get the thought of a harmonica playing country singer out of my head either. I do like Tanner though. I also like Eli, but to make it more masculine I'd probably spell it "Eligh" or something like that. So there ya go... my votes would be "Emerly Michelle" and "Eligh Tanner"
