Thanks! Not really liking any of those sorry
DH & I are doing the whole calling the baby by a different name each week to see if we can decide on what should stay on the list etc. This week it's Poet, I'll see if I can be sneaky and keep using Poet for more than a week and see if he catches on

Avalon Violet? I'm biased as DD2 has Avalon as her name
I also like Naarah Violet.
Posted 29 April 2012 - 09:58 PM
I'm not too sure on Avalon sorry. It's pretty, but don't think it's one I'd want to use. Naarah is ok, but don't particularly want another 'N' name. Thanks though!

OMG Poet is so lovely!
Please forgive any repeats- I haven't read the whole thread...

I admit to not reading all the pages but
combining your two (DH and you) 'likes'
... Lynden? (hang on there was something about L or N names... disregard!)
I dunno about Poet but if you like it, then Poet Vienna?
I see 'Iris' up there in the posts... kinda fits with your 'thang'?

No don't apologise, this thread is so very loooong. I feel sorry for those that are yet to read it, thinking it's full of drama due to it's length
Sorry for the disappointment everyone!
I honestly don't mind if names are suggested more than once. It gives me a chance to 're-visit' them
It may be the only way I get more names in my head.
Thanks mymockingbirdboy. Juno I love, but can't get around the fact it sounds just like 'do you know' to me. I find it hard to consider it as a name, even though I love it. Bowie is cute, not sure about it on a girl though.
la di dah, I keep suggesting Luna, but keep getting knocked back
Kristy, if we went with Alba, it would definitely be Alba Violet. I'm not sure on the others. Thanks though
Appreciate your input.

Zephirine (Which I oddly like more than the male form, Zephyr)
I like Zs.

I suggest that we all just find the OPs husband and torture him till he gives into Poet

LOL! I agree 100%. I'll gladly let you too
Posted 07 May 2012 - 01:54 PM
OP not sure if you're still after suggestions but i have put my thinking cap on for you and come up with a few...not sure if they've been mentioned before tho!
Cant remember what your parameters were so just throwing them all into the mix.
BUT...i still think Poet is the winner!!!!

I reckon you should keep fighting for Poet. We hvwe just agreed on a name and it was one that DH said no to, then he said it could be a middle name, now it's in first place!
Posted 07 May 2012 - 07:37 PM
Oh I definitely will. Because tbh, nothing else compares. And I just cant find anything else
I've looked everywhere, nearly every day.
He wants Jovie (I don't).
I want Poet (he doesn't).
He is ok with Alba (but I don't know if I can settle for that. But I don't want him to just settle either).
He pretty much said she would have been named Fox, if she was a boy
typical! An now he likes West/Weston. No doubt he would have done the opposite though, saying he'd have agreed to Poet.
Congrats on your DH coming around to your name.
Thanks Kerilyn. Not a fan of those sorry.
Thanks chillidog. I love Clara, Quinn & Arlo. All of which he has said no. Though haven't suggested Arlo for a girl yet. Doubt he'll go for it but
Posted 07 May 2012 - 07:47 PM
Jovie has the same ending as Marley, would that bother him enough? Whereas Poet means all your kids have different endings. he sounds so difficult!
DH wanted Hannah which I adore, but we have a Noah already and I feel there too close.
Posted 09 May 2012 - 03:15 PM
Having the same struggle as you are with names (although this is only our third). I come up with some and DH hasn't really given me much to work on apart from every now and then saying -randomly- 'we should come up with some names'
So what I have on my list right now:
Darcel (this is a French boys name but I prefer it as a girls one)
My little girl is Eylee Rhode (FN pronounced like Kylie without the K) and my boy is Raife Gannon - so we are very much looking at the unusual names.
All the best

Sage. Neve, Marley, Mila and Sage. Perfection. I ROCK.
Posted 13 May 2012 - 08:28 PM
Not too crash hot on Sage or Solara. Thanks though.
Etcetera, No I don't think it bothers him. I kinda wanna avoid it if I can though.
Thanks for your suggestions also Polaris. Not sure if any of those are for me
Posted 13 May 2012 - 11:58 PM
Whew! Epic thread!
I think these might be new suggestions....
Posted 14 May 2012 - 03:09 PM
It seems it's mostly 4 letter names you like, is that just by chance?
Here's another couple of short names
Posted 14 May 2012 - 03:20 PM
I'm not too good at this game! But what about Tyla? Or Tilly?
Posted 14 May 2012 - 08:40 PM
There are so many lovely, rare names in this thread!
Is Thora a bit too 'out there'?
Posted 14 May 2012 - 10:04 PM
There was this interior design show on a while back where this couple had 7 children who had 'different' names they were Woolfgang (Wolfie) Tallulah, Bellamy, Breaker, Five, Holleder (Holly) and Major.
or you can have the name my Dh was desperate to give a boy
