I feel better knowing that i'm not alone! i too am prego with #3 and my husband and i can't decide on a boy name. we never have (hence the reason we've never had a boy!) Our girls names are Charlea Rose & Halle RuthAnn. Charlea (pron. Charlie) has by far given us the most compliments! Everyone loves her name and she totally fills the shoes of this "boy-name". Other girl names that i like are Breeley & Brooklyn. Boy names....yeah, see i still need help on that one!

Good luck!!

We have 2 little girls, the oldest is Delaney Rae and youngest is Rylee Renee. But I love these names...for a girl: Piper, Daylee, and Paige and for a boy....Dayne, Tanner, and Deacon. Good luck! When we named our daughters, we had rarely heard of anyone around us with the names Delaney and Rylee...now it seems like we hear of alot of little girls with the name Rylee, we've been lucky with Delaney, I've only heard 1 or 2 other little girls with that name:)

my 1st baby named maxine and my 2nd baby is nicholas adam,why dont you name your child victoria if its a girl coz that means victory and if its a boy name him jesse coz thats a nick name of jesus christ.

I like the Sailor idea..I know a couple that have a daughter named Sailor..a son named Fischer..and 2 Hunters(both from previous marriages..each had a Hunter). Blake is way too popular unless you make it with your own twist..for instance I know a girl named Blakeney and they call her Blake. My daughters name is Emma Ruth. Emma is a somewhat common but traditional name and I loved it. Ruth was my grandmas name that passed away right before I found out I was pregnant. It is her middle name but we combine it and call her Emma Ruth. It works!!..classy yet elegant.. Good luck with the name choosing..whatever you decide spend a while trying to think of things that kids could use to make fun of them and if you come up with anything bad then its probably not a good idea. A girl I knew wanted to name her son Macon but he wouldve been taunted with Bacon for the rest of her life so she stuck with Maeson. Lol...hope that helps!!

I chose strange spelling names but when you sound them out they sound similar to others also they have great meaning eg my first born daughter Yasmihni Gladys. My second daughter Xiva Phontaine (pronounced Zee-va Fon-taine).
Not sure about the gender of the two that im carrying now could be both.
So im going with names from my husband's side for boys: Eudward, Kurt, Maximlian (Maxel for short).
If they are Girls:
Tresna, Nerida, Nickola, Eliza, Xanon.

So there you have it. You may pick any where between 5-20 names before the birth, but once you look at that divine little face, the name will just come to you. Good luck and congratulations!!!

im pregnant with my third one too.. figuring out what your having and what names for which sex was hard! with my second one we named him miles francis.. my fiance put it together caz it sounds like a jazzy musicians name.. our third, emberleigh jayne.. i found ember from the movie city of ember and a song from blue foundation: embers.. my fiance put it together and made the spelling up. my third ones name is willow. i really love roxanne or rebecca but those names are as well popular and all over the place where im at.. good luck.. by the way, try to look up baby websites, some of those have pretty good baby names and the meaning of them.. parenting.com babyzone.com babycenter.com

My daugther's name is Cyanna. Seeing as you dont live anywhere near me, you can totally steal it if you want. My daugther's name is so unique I couldn't find it anywhere online, and nobody else in town has it. I also alwayes liked Brianna and Anya (I love names that finish in "a" for girls lol)
As for boys.... Connor and Jayden were my choices, but Jayden become too popular, so we switched the first letter!! Caden (said like: Kaden) was going to be our choice.

Hope this helps!

I named my daughter Reagan Lilley... I like names for girls that are kind of unisex... There is a site that when you type in a name will also show you names kind of similar, or in the same category... It is http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com... ... It also shows ways that kids could get bullied with a name so you can take it into consideration... Good luck!

How about naming all your children with the same first letter. That would lead to some creative names as well.

I have 2 boys, Jonas Alexandir and Godfrey James. And a girl, Mayika Rose. We were going to go with Kiera Michelle, but Kiera is becoming to popular here. Russell Wade if she had been a boy. Good luck on the name hunt. It's almost as difficult as the giving birth part! lol

i liked the name Malykai for the longest time but ended up naming my son Trevor James and i'm glad i did [lol he is such a TJ]! if he was a girl i was going to name her Olivia Josephine (or vice versa)...i was also considering Naudia as a possible 1st name. thought this was odd when i was looking up baby names on "babynames.com" Bret is the female spelling of Brett.

Oh I had the same problem with my third, especially since all three were the same gender. lol I felt I had used up all the boy names I liked. lol My kids are Anthony (Tony) Joseph, Henry Morgan(uni-sex name) and Peter Alexander. My little girl is Eowyn (pronounced A-O-Win) Margaret. Dad picked the first name but everyone just calls her Maggie. lol There are a lot of good websites out there, like babynames.com good luck

We like family names for but have not gone with that yet! So far I named My first after Ella Fitzgerald, my favorite vocalist of all time (which means something to me as I am a vocalist myself). We altered it slightly to Eleanor Jane.. Jane is Ella Fitzgeralds middle name. It suits her. Our next if its a girl we have a few names picked out but I am afraid to say or it might get taken and overused! One of our names is a name of a character on a tv show we like and the other is a family name. I just hope we have all girls, I have a hard time with boys names!
