Is anyone thinking names already or have them picked out yet?

I have these LONG and drawn out lists of names I love, but none that I am for surely in LOVE with! lol I was wondering if anyone else had as many as me? I am a name nerd whether i am pregnant or not, and I am always adding names i find that I love to my lists just in case! lol

Normally I love really unique names that aren't going to have a ton of "name repeats" later on in college or the work place but for this one, which may be my last one ( well, may be our last to my husband, WILL be my last unless God intervenes as far as I am concerned, lol) I am really loving a lot of common and often heard names like Maggie, Macie, Lucy, Charlotte, Cecilia, and Lydia, and some common boys ones too, like Calvin and Joey!

I still have a long list of unique ones i love and want to use too! right now for girls, i love

Magdalyn, Xanna, Caremie, Tasya, Tarys, Nolanie, Nydia, Cyanne

and for boys I love

Salem, Bastian, Grant, Barret and Bohdin.

what are all of you considering?

Well if it was a girl, which it is not, it would have been Adrianna Sophia. The name we are giving him is Aidan Connor.

We go with common. I have a Charles Andrew, Hunter Leon, and soon to be Hailey Nicole. I grew up with an odd name Mitsi (often mistaken for Misty or Missy) so im going traditional.

Hi Tamra,
I don't think you can ever have too many names.. I currently have 3 children, Lillie, Claye & Tully and expecting another boy and the first thing we did was think of some nice unique or different names!! We are trying to find one we love topo, but I think at the end of the day you always find one that suits bubs.. I get people say that I have strange names for my kids :( but who cares really.. I am liking Darby, Taj, Dusty & Sunny for our lil man but really not sold yet.... any help girlies???

It was easier for me to come up with girl names. I had some really nice ones like Christianna and Arianna, but my husband likes more "normal" names. So we went with names that are definitely going to be run into, lol. We have a Jonathan Alexander, Sarah Michelle, and Katelyn Marie, lol. This boy is going to be Matthew Tyler.

We didn't really make lists, just randomly talked about it and "approved" (or not) each others choices.

We have our girls name picked out.. If its a girl she will be called Natalie Flora.. As for a boy.. who knows.. at first i liked Noah but now I really like Corbin David...

But who knows.. It will probably change again by the time I have him/her in september

So as long as we don't find a name we both agree on before September, it looks like we'll be naming our son Kyler Joshua. I really liked Stark and my husband really liked Sullivan, but neither of us like the others fave, so Kyler is both our second favorites. It was really hard for us the first time around, we picked out Gavin Anthony when we were like 3 or 4 months, and never found anything else we could agree on, so our first son is Gavin Anthony lol. I think Kyler will stick, I like it, and it's not very common. Gavin apparently is WAY more popular than I knew at the time lol I love his name but we probably would've tried for something else if we had realized exactly how popular it is.

I really want some suggestions for Christian girl names to add to the list. We don't know what we are having yet but have 4 boy names and 3 girl names so far. The ultrasound is May 12 so we'll narrow it down soon. So far we like: Cadence Eliot, Eden Briann, Fionna Ruth, Samuel Allen, Elliot Paul, Max Dean, and Everett James... what do you think?

We're having our first girl in September and I already have the name picked out it's going to be Kara Anne.
I have 2 boys already and their names are Christian John and Cody Alan.
I had girl names picked out before but I either don't like them any more or i know people who have used them for their kids.

My boy and girl lists weren't very long, it seems we just knew what our children were going to be named. Actually we picked one name for each sex fairly quickly, although when I was younger and in school I used to create huge long lists of names for my future children! The thing told to me by a wise old friend is this:

Remember that your child will grow up with this name, and grow up with having to spell it, and having friends who will try to spell it, and if it is confusing to spell or pronounce your child will have to live with that for their entire life.

That doesn't mean you can't pick out a unique name, just make sure it won't be a burden on your child later in life.

(I really like some of the names you picked out! Nolanie and Barret are interesting!)

I started a list of boy names but my man doesn't realy care for any of them. He wants to pick out his sons name. My man thinks a name is just going to pop in his head. Here r some of the names I picked. Donovon, Dezi, Devin, Eli, Chance, Chase, isaac, Ira, Leland, Malakhi, nolan, Riley, Gabriel, Ethan, Micah, Nohlan, Damion, Tobias-Toby for short, Xavier, Evin, Dion, Byron or Byrin, Adin.

I've just found out we're having a boy and so I've turned to the boy list. It is so hard to pick a boy name that both me and my husband like. It may be a cute name when the baby is born, but can they grow and live with it when he is a man?? I like simple, almost common names, but not too common. My son is Ryan and my daughter is Julie. You do see these names, but not very often.
I'll just do what I did with my other 2, make a list and keep narrowing it down. Then decide when I get to see the baby.

I have a list of names on my computer and keep adding to it.
We already have two children, Lacey Violette and Hamish Aaron.
If this baby was due tomorrow it would be Shyla Indigo or Paxden Phillip or Embry Phillip, but by September we'll probably change our minds a million times.
I love, love, love the name Dempsy for a girl but my husbands cousins married name is Dempsy. Friend's kids names I like that are unusual are Nyha, Tayah and Alanya

I had tons of names for my first couple kids.. now I only have one of each. I'm not going to worry much about it until we find out the sex. But the names we have picked out are... Kole and Karlee. No middle name for the boy, and I really like Karlee Isabella for a girl, but not sure hubby likes the middle name.
For yours, I like Magdalyn.. kind of an older name.. but nickname Maggy would be so cute. I think Bohdin is cool.

For a girl we're looking at Addison but haven't been able to agree on a middle name... any suggestions?

[deleted account]

We have picked out 1 boy name and 1 girl name. I am due sept 19th. The girl name is Adrianna Sophia and the boy name is Aidan Connor. We can't wait.

Well it's been a few weeks, and we decided on a name that starts with M like Micah or Malachi or Megan or Maya. For the middle we've already settled on Hae for a boy and Haeya for a girl. It means Sun in Korean.
All our kids have Korean middle names, because my hubby's Korean. so we've got Moon, Star, Sky and Sun....
My girls 1st initials spell HEL so we don't want a name starting with L or P... yeah. but we liked M. now we just have to pick one.

You're just like me! We named our daughter Lydia and where considering naming a son Calvin. That's funny. Anyways, we have a much easier time coming up with a ton of girl's names and not so many boys names. It's hard for us to agree on one. I like Asher but my husband thinks it's girly.

We've already picked out names [: We really like Emmalyn Nikole and Kingston Matheu. I think my husband wants his middle name somewhere in the boys name if we have one since it's his grandfathers name also.

Yes, if it is a boy we are going to call him Enrico and if it is a little girl she is going to be our Alisa. These names came to be when I was wondering if I should do a test last week and my husband likes them too :-)

We have a boys name picked out, since we didnt use it with our last pregnancy, but since my daughter is 15 months old, we used the girls name up, and that seems to be the hard one for us, cuz i like so many, and hubby hates so many...LOL
If we have a boy tho, he will be Noah William
If it is a girl, we both like Addison. I like Jaycie, Makenzie, lily, and the list seems to go on and on...LOL
So many of the ones I like he refuses, so it is still way up in the air!

We have already decided if it is a Girl we are nameing her Bette LeeAnn (after my Mema that past away in Dec.) we will call her BetteAnn

If it is a Boy we will name him Gunner Lee (Lee is a family name on my hubby's side)

I love all the names you have picked out!! I think that Bette is pretty unique for today exspecially that is is spelled with a E at the end. :0)

[deleted account]

My husband and I picked out names before we conceived lol. We are those jerks that not only don't find out the gender but we don't tell our names either so we double whammy everyone at delivery. It's just because we are cool like that.
