We have so many names that are of limit because they have been used by close family or friends.

We love for a girl Chloe (fave), Charlotte, Charli, Sienna, Grace, Georgia, Ava. For a boy we need to start all over again as DH and I cant agree on any names we like.

I couldn't help myself either! I have a few criteria for both boys and girls names, so I've started a couple of threads in the baby names forum. I've already had lots of really great suggestions, I can tell this is going to be the hardest part of having a baby...

Haha, since long before we decided to TTC, I have had a list on my phone of girls & boys names I like - I'm happy now to get to put them to good use!! Or one of them at least wink.gif

There are lots of names I like, but if we have a girl I'd really like to call her Rachel after my mother's mother, who was a wonderful and inspiring woman (and a redhead like me original.gif )

I like Marcus for a boy and Seraphina (Sera for short) for a girl.
DP thinks Seraphina is revolting. I don't think I'll even have a girl so not stressing too much!

I know a 3 year old Marcus. Gorgeous name.

I already have Penelope Inga and Abigail Cecelia.  Both girls have my grandmothers' names as middle names.

This time around we have used a Thai egg donor so if it's a girl we are thinking of possibly incorporating that in some way.

Mali Elizabeth.  Mali is "flower" in Thai and my mum's name is Betty, hence the middle name.

Another option is Mary Anne.  It's taken a lot of praying to get even this far in my pregnancy.  My confirmation name is Anne.

For a boy, we will stick to traditional.  John Ryan is an option as Ryan in my maiden name.  Michael Ryan is another as my Dad's nickname is Mick so it would be nice to have another Mick Ryan in the world!

We're all set for our boys, have been for years. But cannot for the life of us agree on a girls name - so I'll be watching all of the names you come up with.

I am all sorted with a girls name now! Poor little new bubba will now no doubt be a boy.

#13 Hazel_Eyes

Posted 03 January 2013 - 11:10 PM

I pick names based upon how they sound... a preference for more than one syllable and not too plain.  My DH on the other hand is very traditional with name choices, I can't see how we will ever agree!!
Thanks for this thread as it will get me started thinking about it again.  A fun way to spend time!!

I have a problem. My fave girls name is very similar to my niece's name. I have had this name for a while, it's the fave character in a book- Kerowyn. Kero for short.
Then a year or so ago DH sister named her little girl Kiera.


Now I hate to think that the name is too similar to hers!

Opinions?

#15 emelsy

Posted 08 January 2013 - 08:14 PM

That's my fave name Keira but I think I like Kira spelling better!

#16 emelsy

Posted 08 January 2013 - 08:16 PM

How do you pronounce it? Keir o win? I don't think it's too similar to Keira. Is the nickname Kero like Kerro or Kiro?

#17 Kiwi Bicycle

Posted 09 January 2013 - 02:16 PM

Yes that's how you pronounce Kerowyn. Both names come from Kerry which is Irish for dark haired. The nickname is pronouced like Kiera but with an "o" on the end.

I have heard stories of friends telling each other their favourite baby names and the friend "stealing" the others name, but in this case I hadn't told anyone! So it's pure conincidence.

Living bravely- We have so many of the same names for girls! Great taste wink.gif

We have loads of girls names but really struggling with boys names. And my prediction is that we will be having a boy. So I really need to work on that!!

I am struggling with names at the moment. I have a few of my own favourites but DP loves nicknamey sounding names... which I don't. Hmmm, should be an interesting couple of months while we try to both agree on names. We are not finding out the sex either so we need to have a few options for either sex
