It's early and oh so subject to change but who has given any thought to names yet?
Girl names kind of stump me since I've already used my two favorites. I really like old fashion names for girls so my favorites (so far) are Ruby and Rose. Boy names I am really liking Nathaniel, Jonah, and Miles. Ava would have been Noah and Olivia was going to be Judah so I kind of feel like those names were exclusive to them. I don't think we are going to tell IRL people our names until baby gets here though.
I've always liked Henry for a boys name, my husband's not too big on it though. We've had Olivia picked out for a girl's name since before we were married. We like bouncing boy names back & forth. I teased my husband with Cobalt....it sounds cool...but you have to say it the right way ;).
We've had our names picked out for awhile. Thinking about trying and TTC for almost a year...you think about stuff a lot!
Boy: William (Liam) Owen or Alexander, DH can't decide on the middle name he likes
Girl: Abigail Lillian
The middle names (except for Alex) are for honoring family and the first names are because it's what we like. In my family everyone has a unique first name but in DH family they try to use family names. So I think it's a nice compromise.
Rach...I like them all but love "Miles" ♥.
Anna...love the name Henry (my cousin's ds is Henry and he is sooooo adorable)! Olivia is precious!!
Natalie...I love love love William Owen (ha...kind of favor Owen over Alexander for obvious reasons, lol ) and Abigail is my oldest's daughter's name . I always wanted a Lily/Lillian or Lucy/Lucille but they didn't make dh's cut .
A girl will be Evangeline but we haven't nailed down a boy name or middle names yet. Some names we're tossing around are:
Thaddeus Robert (my dad is Robert)
Raven Timothy (I know Raven is thought of as a girl's name but I like it for a boy)
Reuben Timothy (dh likes Timothy for a first name but I don't so it will likely be a middle)
Evangeline Juniper (love the whimsiness), Ember, or joy
I like Owen a lot. Miles too! And you know I love Nathaniel
That's funny Rach! We love that show too, and we always knew we like Charlotte and wanted to do it after my gpa... but when we started watching that show and the main girl's name was Charlie (it's actually Charlotte) we were like "Yep! She's so badass!" Lol. Sadly, we have missed most of this season, and without internet can't catch up.
Miles Davis...come on!
We have tried discussing but dh loves nsme Jonathan for a boy which I don't and I have no clue what it cqn be for a girl! Dd1 insists on Elizabeth but our 2nd one is Alyssa who is already Lyssa for short.

Popping in from June. Hope you don't mind!
We're thiking of Penelope Cates for a girl. Cates is. MIL's maiden name and DH's middle name. We'd use Penny as a nickname. Second choice is Margaret, "Maggie," which was my mom's name. My sister's DD is Ariana Margaret though.
We're having a harder time with boys. We used to be pretty set on Charles Arthur after two of our grandfathers, but some good friends just used Charles. We're considering Thomas Whitworth with "Whit" as a possible nickname. Still working on others.
I had always said I wanted to name my daughter Lennon (yes I'm a huge Beatles fan, but it's a tribute to my dad who introduced me to them and my love of music.) Middle name Jean (after DHs dad who passed away, his name was Gene) BUT now I'm really digging the name Norah Leigh. Lee is my dad's middle name. Who knows tho!! It's been a really rough 18 months for me. I lost my Grandmothers 3 days apart, and my Papaw 3 months ago, so I lost all three of my remaining grandparents within 18 months, and in the middle my dad was diagnosed with cancer. So, no clue where we'll end up on names. If it's a boy I would almost name him Russell, my Papaw's name, and I've considered my Grandmothers names, but Idk... It's still months off, and I'm sure I'll change my mind...
Jessica (34) DH (39) This is a first for both of us
I've been going over and over names and I'm in love with the name Eleanor Claire . We will probably still go with Evangeline but I think I'd like a traditional middle name...Evangeline Catherine.
I'm hoping dh will come around to Thaddeus Robert...so far it's my #1 for a boy .
We are big on really unusual/non traditional names. We have a girl name so far... but no boy name.
DD1 (7) DD2 (4) DS1 (22 months) Baby #4 EDD 7/13/14
Gideon is on our list for boy names... I like it but it doesn't really go with our other kids. So far I have a Tristyn Faith, Kaelyn Hope, and Talon Jason (his daddy's first name is Jason). So yeah a girl name needs to end in -yn. We like Rocklyn Joy right now (my girls hate it though lol). And I'd love to find something bird related for a boy name because of Talon... But I might just have to go with a name ending -n (hence Gideon). Im playing around with Avion, but I think its too out there.
I was just telling my dh that I wish we could be like Mary and Joseph and have an angel say "His/Her name will be :_______" end of story! Naming is hard

I came across a cool baby name website today: http://www.babynamewizard.com/
They have a cool feature, the NameVoyager Expert where you can put in names that you like & other criteria and it'll give you a whole bunch of names similar to ones you like. Only downside is it's a subscription for that feature. Still cool though I thought.
I'm going to check those out!
I can't believe it...dh just said he's okay with whatever names I choose ! I asked if he wanted to know ahead of time and he said it's up to me.
So, what would you ladies do? Would you keep it a surprise (we aren't finding out gender until delivery)? I'm excited about this !!
We have a name. Micah which means "who resembles God". Whether boy or girl.
