Hi All,

About to do first round of ivf and trying to keep positive. Thought I'd ask opinions on names. After all we've been thru DH says if we are lucky enough to fall pregnant I can have any name I want. So what do you think of these;

Lucy Elizabeth
Holly Grace
Charlotte Grace
Lexi Kate

Just Lucy is my front runner. Has been my favourite for 10 years.

Macintosh ( Mac ) James ...Mac is my great grandfathers name.
Owen James ...James is family name . Will deffinately be mn.

I'm a teacher so its difficult.

What do you think?

I think Macintosh (Mac) James is cool.

For a girl my pick would be Lucy Charlotte.  Feminine and classic and nice flow.


Good Luck!

That's sweet of your dH.

My picks are Lucy Elizabeth and Owen James. I love these two.

All the best.

Lucy and Owen

I love the name Lucy - DS was going to be Lucy Michelle.


However am fan of shorter names and  I also really like Holly so from the list I vote for Holly Grace with Lucy Elizabeth a close second.



Macintosh doesnt really do anything for me - partly because of the surname-ness of it and partly because it sounds like a rain coat.

I dont mind Owen.

Charlotte Elizabeth or Lucy Charlotte are my picks for girls and for boys I like Owen James (Sorry not keen on Mac at all).

Good luck with your IVF journey

I am a teacher and, yes, it was a struggle to name DD!  We chose Holly Jane (Jane is my middle name and my nan's middle name), as I had never come across a naughty or nasty Holly!

Macintosh James is awesome, as is Owen.

I love the name Lucy, and if we were lucky enough to have another girl, Lucy would be in the mix

From your list, Lexi is my least fave.

Good luck with yoru IVF journey!

I love Lucy, it's a beautiful name.

I also really like Owen.

Good luck, I hope you get to use your names really soon.

My picks would be Lucy Charlotte and Owen James, only because I'm not too sure on Macintosh as a FN. I love Sassy Girl's suggestion of James Macintosh though, if that was an option I'd pick that original.gif

Good luck with your IVF journey happy.gif

Cannot choose between Lucy Elizabeth and Holly Elizabeth. Not a fan of Grace as it is my neighbour's dog's name. If you don't like George (I think all boys should be named George!) I would go for Owen James.

I wish you and your husband al the best as you start your IVF treatment. Hopefully you will get a chance to use all three names!

They are all lovely names.

I'd rather cross my fingers for you than pick the nicest name! I hope you get your wish. Xx

Thanks for the comments and kind wishes, its much appreciated.

Old grey mare my FIL was George! Hubby not keen to use it. I'd happily have it as a mn.

Thanks for the combo's too.

Hopefully I can use one of these soon!

I like Lucy and Holly a lot.

Holly feels really uncommon to me but I think that its less used back home. I have always found it sweet and nature-y without being hippie. I've never known one IRL, only online.

Lucy is sweet too though and if you love it best, you love it best.

Owen is a favourite of mine but I like family names. Owen Macintosh would be my favourite if all things were equal. James isn't bad though its just if I had Mac and James to pick from and they're both family names, Mac is more distinctive without being wacky.

Best wishes from one TTCer to another.

Posted 20 January 2013 - 08:38 PM

I wish you all the best with the IVF

Lucy Elizabeth - nice
Holly Grace - nice
Charlotte Grace - nice
Lexi Kate - prefer Alexa or Alexia

Macintosh (Mac) James ...Mac is my great grandfathers name - I don't really like Macintosh but Mac is ok - was your g gfathers full name Macintosh - if not some other Mac names
Cormac
MacAuley
Mack
Mac
Macario - which means blessed
MacArthur

Owen James ...James is family name . Owen James is nice

#17 tres-chic

Hi OP,

I think they're all pretty names.

Lucy Elizabeth - lovely but I really do prefer Elizabeth or Beth to Lucy but I see it's your favourite and it is really nice.
Holly Grace - gorgeous
Charlotte Grace - very pretty but again I'd prefer it around the other way
Lexi Kate - my least favourite but I love Kate there in MN spot.

I'm less keen on Macintosh - just reminds me of rainwear but I love Mac/Mack and I like James in either first or MN position and I love Owen James.



#18 Bel Rowley

Posted 23 January 2013 - 06:01 AM

Any of the girls' names I like other than Lexi, Lucy Elizabeth or Lucy Charlotte would be my pick.

Any chance of Owen Macintosh for a boy? So much more distinguished and distinctive than Owen James, which is quite blah for me.

Charlotte is a lovely name (would have been in contention for DD if we hadn't been moving to a city named Charlotte wink.gif ). I also like Lucy, Elizabeth and Grace. I have known a couple of lovely, but dippy Holly's so as much as the name is lovely it makes me think ditzy. LOL

I have an awesome great uncle named Mac! biggrin.gif  and also like James.

I am sending happy baby making wishes your way. Good Luck!  hands.gif
