So DH and I have been talking about names alot (I dont wanna do what my brother did and not have a name until 3 days after the birth) We have settled at tme moment on:

Haleigh Rose biggrin.gif

or


Mason John biggrin.gif

Basically I am just wondering what everyone else thinks. We think we have decided but it could always change... we still have a while to go before a final decision has to be made.

Mason is bucking for number 1 of all baby names for boys in the US, and I know many. It's not unpleasant though.

I like Halle but not Hayley, and Haleigh feels very jumbled up to me, but I'm not much of a fan of -leigh at all.

I like John and Rose as first names, they are simple, well-known, and feel less on-trend w/o being weird.

Love and Love! Think they are both nice original.gif

I like your names but not your spelling of Haleigh. Hayley is beautiful and so is Halle as I am unsure how you pronounce Haleigh.

DH and I have been discussing names since day dot, if this baby is boy he will be unnamed for some time lol.

Haleigh - terrible! How is it pronounced? I say it like Ha - lee, which sounds like Harley which is a boys name, or is it like Hayley, or Halle?  Maybe consider a clearer spelling? Your child will be forever correcting people otherwise.

Mason is cute, I like. It's becoming super popular though, not sure if that worries you.

I don't mind either name, but I would go with the spelling Hayley

Haleigh Rose biggrin.gif



Is that pronounced - Har-lee, Haal-lee or Hay-lee?



Maybe go for a clearer spelling?

Mason John




Fine - but does sound a little like My son John (went to bed with his trousers on - its a nursery rhyme).

They are both fine. But please dont spell Hayley like that. It looks so terrible.

Honest opinion?

Please don't spell Hayley like that!!

I'm a Hayley and I would hate to be saddled with my name spelt like that.

You would forever be telling people how to spell it properly, people would get it wrong all the time - annoying!

I think it is a nice enough name without it being "jazzed up" with  creative spelling.

I don't mean to come across as harsh, but as a Hayley I feel I must speak out, lol!  smile1.gif

Haleigh Rose (another not sure on which pronunciation you plan to go with, I am assuming Hayley, if so please don't spell it like that. other than that I like it)

or


Mason John (clearly I like this as my DS1 is Mason John lol)

I thought Haleigh=Halle. I can't get Hayley out of that spelling.

I don't mind Halle, but hate your spelling.


That's what I thought. I like Halle, but Haleigh is confusing.

#18 Prioritising Pooks

Posted 21 January 2013 - 09:49 PM

I'm another one who thinks its better to go Halle or Hayley. Either is good. Like the boys name too.

#19 Rainbow Brite

Posted 21 January 2013 - 09:56 PM

I've never liked Hayley. It sounds so harsh.

I don't like Mason either. Mason is the new Cooper/Riley.

#20 Ingrid the Swan

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:09 PM

Sorry to join the majority but I'd prefer Hayley or Halle or even Haley or Hailey to Haleigh. Not a huge fan of Rose in the middle spot.

Mason John is a little plain but I definitely prefer it to Haleigh Rose.

#21 Super Cat

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:13 PM

I like Hayley and Halle. I have a thing for H names. Rose as mn? No. Unless its a family name. It just sounds tacked on. Rose and Grace for mn to me just sound like the parents couldn't really be bothered to think of anything else. They are just like the 'Marie' and 'Lee' of yesteryear. I reckon 80% of adults my age would have Marie or Lee as a middle name.

Go for something more vibrant like Hayley Vivienne, or Hayley Estella. Anything but Rose or Grace!

Mason, love it.

#22 ~THE~MAGICIAN~

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:44 PM

Mason is ok.

Spell Hayley like that and you'll be fine.



#23 Mine Site Wife

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:47 PM

We wanted to spell it Haleigh to incorporate my middle name Leigh as ists extremely important to DH that we use my name (not sure why he doesnt want to use his) and John is for both out fathers (DH is very sentimental)

Thrilled that everyone is being so honest, I like it spelt Hayley better as well hopefully i can convince him biggrin.gif

A friend of mine has a 3 year old DD Hayleigh Rose.  Same spelling as yours.  I don't mind it

#25 Le-a

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

Both names are really NMS. Sorry OP, I'm going against the grain to say I'm not a fan.

Having said that, I think it's lovely you are incorporating family names into your baby name choices. My DS is named after his uncle, grandfather, and great-grandfather (all the same name).
