Thanks! Not really liking any of those sorry blush.gif

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 Tounge1.gif

Avalon Violet? I'm biased as DD2 has Avalon as her name original.gif I also like Naarah Violet.

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!

I admit to not reading all the pages but
combining your two (DH and you) 'likes'

Alba Violet?

... Vienna?
... Jardee?
... Jessalyn?
... Lynden? (hang on there was something about L or N names... disregard!)
... Amelie?

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'?

Thanks ladies.
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 ph34r.gif Sorry for the disappointment everyone! laugh.gif

I honestly don't mind if names are suggested more than once. It gives me a chance to 're-visit' them wink.gif 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 sad.gif

Kristy, if we went with Alba, it would definitely be Alba Violet. I'm not sure on the others. Thanks though original.gif Appreciate your input.

Seconded!

#236 pippityroo

Clara
Aria
Lotus

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!

#240 pippityroo

Posted 07 May 2012 - 07:37 PM

Oh I definitely will. Because tbh, nothing else compares. And I just cant find anything else sad.gif 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 ddoh.gif 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 sad.gif

#241 Etcetera

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.

#242 Polaris

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' rolleyes.gif

So what I have on my list right now:

boys -
Aric
Rune
Ryker
Thor
Royce
Tynan

girls -
Bria
Darcel (this is a French boys name but I prefer it as a girls one)
Zuri
Akira

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

#245 pippityroo

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 original.gif

Is Thora a bit too 'out there'?
