We're not set on names yet, but for a boy we're thinking Nolan. No middle yet. For a girl we both liked Rhea. Im not sure about it anymore, I think I like Raya or Raia better. Neither of us are budging at the moment
We may keep the name a secret too; we haven't decided yet. Since I don't know any of you ladies irl, I share freely though :-)

We were Team Green with DS and didn't share any of our name thoughts. Everyone hated it.

Re: Names?

we are waiting to find out the sex of the baby/.... 3 weeks to go til our ultrasound. everyone thinks its a boy, we have 2 girls, so I kinda think its another girl. my husband and I don't agree at all.thats why we are waiting for the gender., any suggestions either way would be great we have a Madelyn Grace, Abigail faith and ??? I like Hannah Joy or McKayla Joy for another girl or Jacob Brett but I would like a longer 1st name for a boy since our girls have longer names and I have a long name....

--love all of you out there thinking of using Elizabeth---- I can tell you its a good one since its mine. so many nicknames or you can use the whole thing like I do !

Re: Names?

If this one is a boy, he will be Gabriel. I really like Alexander as a middle name, but DH is not wild about that. He likes Gabriel Elijah or Gabriel Eli, which I'm not crazy about.

No girl names yet. It took us 10 days after our last baby was born to choose a name for our daughter. Her name had to include DH's Granny's name, but it was hard to find a first name we could agree on.

It is hard to choose a name that will suit another person for their entire lives.

What do you guys think? Any other suggestions?
My other kids are Jace, Afton, and Thayer.
I like Oakley!

Eta I'd go with a lesser syllable name since your others have shorter names

Re: Names?

So far I'm really loving Emmy for a girl but also like Cayla. Cayla has been in the running with each girl since we got married in the Grand Caymans. For a boy i like Tristan, Joseph, Duke but I haven't even went through these with my husband as he is such a bear with baby names

DS's monogram would be APE and, if this baby is a girl and we used Allison Evelyn, the monogram would also be APE. Is that bad, in your opinion?

DS initials spell WEB.... Just glad our last name didn't start with a D or DD's initials would have been STD (they're STB instead...)

Re: Names?

Ok....DH offered me a deal about the names. Since I absolutely hate Molly Anne for a girl name and it's just what he's stuck on, he said that he'd throw the name off of the table for this baby if I promised that if the next one is a girl (since we aren't done) that there wouldn't be any discussion about it and it WOULD be Molly Ann.

That could either work in my favor or bite me in the butt. What to do? Take the deal and risk certain death to any posibilities of a different name the next go around or continue to fight it out? Although....I really don't love ANY of the names on our somewhat girl list. Nothing is just slapping me in the face saying....YES....THAT IS IT!! KWIM?

I wouldn't take it! Lol


The other night I remembered a name we had on our girl list - Piper Riley. I still love it. Dh didn't say much either way. So I'm hoj g to add it to the list. He rarely gives any input other than a yay or nay.

Re: Names?

Aww Molly is so cute! It might grow on you by the next one (unless you knew an evil molly!), I have a few names I LOVED 5 years ago and now I'm like, meh.
