One way we knew we were having another boy was those were the only names we were really discussing. (We did the same thing with our other two.) We just couldn't come up with any girl names that we liked this time. But we still haven't even come close to naming this kid. My older son is named after his father and grandfather so his name was easy. Then my daughter is named after her grandmothers. But now I am at a loss for this kid.
We were thinking of Zachary Issac but now I am just not sure. My brothers name is Zachary and my SIL's name is Jessica. If you take the Je off Jessica and move the letter a bit is spells Issac. So then the kid would be named after his uncle and aunt but I am just not sure I am in love with the name. I like simple names but I don't like the popular -en ending names.
Anyways my question was who all has decided on baby names? And if you are sharing what did you choose?

I like Aurora Lee/Leigh...it sounds good with Harmony Rae.

Our first was Chessa Jean-Marie, Jean Marie being my grandmother's name, and Jean being my middle name.

This one for a girl will be Chhaya Kerri-Lynn, Kerri Lynn being my mother's name.

And we still haven't fully decided on a boys name yet...

I really like:
Jasper (hesitant because of Twilight and popularity)
Jude
Alexander
Brennan
Liam (hesitant because of growing popularity)
Thierry

But the hubby doesn't really like any of those names, and would prefer something like:
Alastair (okay with, as a middle name and spelt Alasdair)
Bastian (hesitant for him getting the nickname 'Bastard' or something...)
Blaine
Carver
Dante
Dietrich
Ezerial
Halen
Holden
Keaton
Keegan
Kieran
Nolan

Originally we had decided on Thierry J(something)-Alasdair....but that's really long =/

I'd like to try to keep it in line with my daughter's first initials of CJ...so like, TJ, or AJ, or something like that...

But that's given we have a boy.

Three days! =D

We really like the name Lila for our new daughter, but to be honest I have to see her before I can make the decision as to whether or not she looks like a Lila. With our oldest daughter, we had it narrowed down to three names and decided when she was born. Her name is Rowan.

I have a two year old son named Jake and another boy on his way in 6 weeks. My husband is the worst with names. Every name that I liked he hated. We have decided on Luke for baby #2. Another cute name one of my GF named her son is Ryker. Just some suggestions.

We have picked Brooks Asher! My hubby plays hockey for fun and loves watching it and there are a few players in the NHL named Brooks. We went to a friends house to hang out and they had other friends and their kids over and there was a little one named Asher. So I just started calling him Brooks Asher and it stuck!! I love it and no one has looked at me funny or said anything bad about it!! That makes me smile!!

My daughters name is Charlee Christine and we found out we are having another girl and her name will be Haylee Elizabeth.

[deleted account]

Okay NOW we are finally decided lol you ladies must think I'm the most indecisive woman on earth. Anyway we changed it from Rosalea Margaret to Elizabeth Anne and that is the end of that. Perfect name for our daughter, took a long time but we finally found THE name something I had resigned myself to never finding. Whew that was an adventure!

We are naming our son Addison Benone. Benone is his daddy's middle name given to him at birth. He was born in Romania and later adopted by American parents. Addison translates into "Adam's son" which is the American name he was given after adoption.

My partner and I had 2 boys names and 2 girls names picked out before we even conceived. They are:
Elijah Mervyn (BOY)
Dakota Indianna (GIRL)
Donovan Riley (BOY)
Jordan Taylor (GIRL)
We recently found out that we are expecting a little girl and have decided on calling her Dakota Indianna. We didn't even have to discuss it, we just both started calling her Kody.. :P
We hope to be able to use all the names one day, but at the moment we are focusing on our little Princess soon to be here.. LOL..

I love the name Dexter!

Our names are out the window lol I thought we had decided, but we haven't. We're gonna wait to see what the baby is and then we'll name him or her when he or she is born ♥

This is my first and we only had a girl names picked out - Grace "Gracie." Well the night before the ultrasound where we might have been able to find out the sex we started talking boys names we settled on Matthew James. Thank goodness-ultrasound showed it was a BOY and now we can refer to him as Matthew instead of the baby...I love it!!! James is my husband, father and brothers name but we couldn't have another first name. We wanted a traditional name-thus Matthew. Good luck! PS I like Issac.

I am pregnant with my first child and it's a boy! My boyfriend and I can not agree on a name. He likes Lucas and I like Brayden. No matter what the middle name will be Donald after my father!

We have now decided on Issac as his first name but are still undecided on his middle name. My husband and son want it to be Issac Anthony. It is starting to grow on me so that will probably be his name if I can't come up with anything else.
Oh and they want Anthony because my older son loves Ironman. Hopefully Issac won't be mad at me someday for letting his older brother help pick his name.

I had my first daughters named picked out before we even conceived her. Annaliese Nadine (annaliese was a name i always loved and nadine is after my hubbys grandmother who was pretty much a second mom to him! She passed away several years ago.)



This pregnancy took us by surprise so we had a hard time not only agreeing on a name but also who to name her after! I finally settled on Lorelai AnnMarie Riley (ann is my mother and mother in laws middle name and marie is my step moms middle name!) since its our last baby we decided to fit everyone in there!

So we changed our minds from Nichole to Sophie or Keira, and then it was between Sophie and Rosalie. Its a long story but our little girl on the way is going to be Rosalea Margaret and we're finally decided :)

I'm having a girl and i really like the names Kaia (pronounced like Maia, but with a K), Jayda and Shae. if i call her Kaia her middle name will be Jayne (it's my middle name and my mums name too), i like the sound of Kaia Jayne, but the other two don't sound right with Jayne, any suggestions for a middle name for Jayda or Shae?! obviously i like unusual names, not common names like Rachel or Emma =)

[deleted account]

My son's name is Aiden Richard Scott, and our little girl on the way will be Nichole Margaret. I like the sound of Margaret Nichole better, we both do, but then everyone will call her by Margaret and it will get confusing since it's a very popular family name. I'm already despising that everyone is reffering to her as Nikki though...I know its stupid its one of the most common nicknames but I don't like it and its making me like the name Nichole less and less which I hate because we were set on that for the first name. I also like Cadence but my SO has this thing against naming kids after words: skye, rayne, summer, destiny, faythe, etc.

I like those names. :) Fredrick is one of the names we are discussing because it was both of my husbands grandfathers middle names. I am pretty stuck on Issac right now though and I don't think it would sound good with that.
Oh and my other kids names are James Arthur (we call him Jamie) and Cara Bliss.

Heather~ I like the middle name Marie. I debated on using it for my daughters middle name since it is also my middle name too.

Weve had Allysa picked out since I was pregnant with my first son, but weve always debated between Breanna and Marie for the middle name. Since we had a boy we didnt really have any need to decide and this time around we had yet to pick out any boys names when we found out we are having a girl so the debate was still between me wanting Breanne and him wanting Marie, he really wanted Marie because its my middle name, so since I made him give in to my sons name, Hunter Chase, I gave in to this one. Im actually starting to like the name alot though, Allysa Marie!

Yup we have had names picked at around 12 weeks lol

If the baby is a girl she will be Josslynn Alice. I loved the name Joss but my SO said it sounded incomplete... Lynn is a family middle name and we both 'maybe'd Jocelyn so I asked him if he would like Josslynn and he said he loved it (I am sooo in love with it) and Alice is my maternal grandma's name.

If the baby is a boy his name will be Layne William. My first ever favorite band was Alice In Chains (another reason for Alice if the baby is a girl) and the original lead singers name was Layne - I've always adored the name, I suggested it with our first child and my SO wasn't too keen on it, now he loves it. William is my maternal grandpa's name - Alice's husband.

The reason we chose Alice and William over another grandparent is because my grandma has MS and has been in hospital for years.... she is increasingly getting worse and my grandpa is in ill health as well. They have been married over 50 years and my grandpa retired early to take care of my grandma. When he could no longer take care of her, he put her in the hospital and he drove the hour round trip every day to have lunch with her. When the driving became too much, he sold the family home and moved into town to be close to her. Now that he is starting to be unable to take care of himself he is looking into getting a room close to my grandma so that they can spend the end of their days together.

Their love, strength and dedication to each other and life is incredible, inspiring and beautiful.
