Hi ladies! Lets start a discussion on what we're thinking for names! I haven't got any yet, my kids now are Asher Joel, Bethany Joy and Lydia Ruth. So I think I'll try to stick with a similar style :-) Boys name are so hard, the girls names were easy!!

Hi everyone. What a great idea 123babies4me! I found naming DD so stressful and still occasionally have naming regret. My husband hates playing what he calls 'the name game' so it will be lovely to have you all to bounce ideas off í ½í¸Š We have Abigail Jean (Abby).

We're in trouble if this one is a boy. The only boy name we both absolutely adored we've already used!!!!

My DH and I are going to have huge problems finding a name we both like. My DH hates every name out there! He says they are all either too boring or too weird.
Naming is such a big deal. I hate my name and my DH hates his, so it's putting a lot of pressure on us!
For girls the names I like are:
I also think girls names are much, much easier than boys names!
For boys I like:
Taylor (although I prefer it for a girl, it is a family name for a boy)
I think we're going to wait until the bub is born though to make the final decision.

At the moment we have the girls names down to Bethany May and Emily May - subject to change of course
Boys names are way harder, we want something simple but nice, not too 'soft' and nothing that will get a silly nickname - which makes coming up with a boy's name quite hard! Am looking forward to hearing everyone's names, might provide some inspiration.

My partner likes stupid names like v8 drivers lol .
I've got two names I like but scared to share lol .
My youngest is Jude I still love it
Posted 08 July 2015 - 11:42 AM
OrganisedChaos - love your girls name! Bethany May is very similar to my girls name Bethany Joy! Emily is a lovely name too.
MTMB - I love Jude as well. If my last was a boy (we chose not to find out at the 18 week scan, unlike with the first two) she would have been Jude. But she is Lydia. Jude may very well come back as an option this time. We tend to reevaluate names with every pregnancy, often we find in the time between pregnancies we might have gone off a name that we previously liked.

That's precisely our problem 123B4M - we are still keen on our girl name but our back up boy name I've gone off a bit. DH is still pretty keen on it though. Middle name will be his name so I need to think of potential back up boys names that go with it.

My OH rolled his eyes yesterday when i mentioned daydreaming about names... Bless.

My DH refuses to talk names recently. But we are moving house and have another property for sale so we have other things going on for now.
Everything I like is 'hippie' according to him lol. I am a bit airy fairy, I like things like Harper, Fern, Alba, Flynn, etc. Whereas DH is much more traditional. The only thing we have ever agreed on in the past has been Emma Louise for a girl, but I worry its a little plain. No agreement for boys ever.

Oh I LOVE Alba...our girl name is pretty well locked and loaded though...and I do love it. Our son's names are one from DH's side and one from my side of the family and our girl name is the same and we are currently debating whether we go the same way if this little one is another boy - we already have boy middle name sorted.
I also LOVE Darragh but there's no way I can talk DH around on that one :/

If we have a boy I want to use my late Father's name, Stephen, as his middle name. But I'm having trouble finding names that it flows with. I kind of like Connor Stephen but I'm just not sure.
For a girl we were thinking Charlotte Alice (that was before the princess was born). At the moment I also like Claire Evelyn. DH isn't keen on Evelyn.
Names are so hard. I wish babies just came with them... Like cabbage patch kids.
Posted 09 July 2015 - 08:42 PM
But cabbage patch dolls have absolutely terrible names :-)
Posted 09 July 2015 - 10:06 PM
Mmmmm I love Claire and Alice too....girl names are so lovely
Posted 09 July 2015 - 10:58 PM
If i have a girl will be Mackenzie Shay.
Boys names are too hard!! Lol
Posted 10 July 2015 - 07:45 PM
My girl names are Molly and xanthe (hubby hates xanthe ) Lola & Alexa but I've got three boys so I think it will be a boy I've only got one boy name I like -Alfie x hubby hates it but too bad lol .

I have just discovered the name Lyra and I absolutely love it! Do you think it is too different to DD name Abigail (Abby)?
Posted 11 July 2015 - 09:17 PM
I like Lyra mummy beat!! But dh doesn't...I have felicity, Penelope (penny)
And boys are hard!! Dh wants Alexander but I'm not digging it atm.... Middle name for a boy will defs be John after a family member
Posted 12 July 2015 - 12:05 PM
DH & I already have names picked out for a boy and girl. Was super easy for us.
Nicklou86, we also have Penelope picked out for a girl.
And funnily enough, also John for a boys middle name, because of family members (Three of them in the family actually!)

We've suddenly struck on George, it's our current front runner for a boy. Our son has a MASSIVE George Pig obsession though so not sure where that leaves us!!!
Posted 12 July 2015 - 07:36 PM
We were talking about it today and are thinking:
Girl - Scarlett Anabelle or Scarlett Analise
Boy - Nate Joshua
They are different to what I'd picked years ago when we started TTC #2 but I like them
Posted 12 July 2015 - 08:50 PM
We only have middle names. Lynn for a girl as my mum and I both have Lynn as our middle name. Trevor or John for a boys middle name after my late pop.
Posted 13 July 2015 - 03:51 PM
DH and I had our first names discussion last night :-) At the moment I am liking Levi for a boy. I like Samuel as a boys' middle name, and Anna (DH's mum's name as a middle name) or perhaps Margaret (Mum's middle name). Middle names seem easier!!
Posted 13 July 2015 - 06:41 PM
We only have 1 we've discussed for a boy - Brandt James. For a girl we like Maya, Makena and Maisie, with the middle name Katerina (Kate for my Mum, Katherine and Rina for DP's Mum, Carina). We have Jayden Alistair and Jesse Joshua. I flat out REFUSE to have anymore bloody J names!! Lol.
