We had a first and middle name picked out (family names), and I loved both of them. Then we went for the U/S

My philosophy is you shouldn't tell ANYONE who wasn't there when they baby was conceived.

We used the internet. Specifically, the baby name wizard. If you click on a name it will show you sibling names people have entered, so I looked at all the names that I liked but DH didn't and looked at the siblings...we ended up finding a name we both liked that way.

We had a name for our girl picked out from last time. It's my middle name Alyse and the MN will be Leilani which we both have always liked. I found names for a boy on website. I just came up with a list and actually DH like two of them Ezeikel and Malachi so we decided which we liked better for a first name and decided on Ezeikel.

DH and I always use a family name for the middle name. DD has my mother's middle name which is also my middle name ~ Lea. DS has DH's middle name ~ Tyler. And this little girl will have MIL's middle name ~ Gail:):)

The first name we already had picked out from if DS's had been a girl. Although when we found out this LO is a girl, I was a bit sceptical of the name because of it's popularity (it's in the top 10 on the SS list). I tried and tried to find another name but we can't find one we love nearly as much! I have done a lot of research from teachers and such and there aren't really a lot of this name around our area in the Midwest so that makes me feel a little better. And DH could absolutely care less what anyone else thinks...maybe I should be more like him?!

In my 10,000 names baby book (but it was in the front list in the top 100)... and I have liked it since 2008 when I was looking to name DD but the hubby didn't like it then :) I had to bribe him by using his name for the middle name, lol...

You wanna know where i always look at names.... credits on tv shows/movies. Weird right? When i was pg with ds, i started scanning through the names at the end of a show and noticed alot of different/creative names. Not that i would copy a name, just gets your mind introduced to and thinking about some different names.

Hi ladies,

I wanted to share links to the Baby Name boards here on iVillage.

I am baby obsessed so I always am thinking about baby names especially girl ones. Well, I got dd1 and dd2's names from movies/books. dd1 is actually named after my mother "Marianna" (pronounced "ah-na") but we call her Anya which I first heard from the movie Anastasia. This baby is Bianca from Taming of the Shrew but I think I mostly noticed the name when watching 10 things I hate about you years ago. Ironically, I didn't consider Bianca at all for dd1 and I'm not sure what made me think of it this time since I haven't read the play/seen that movie in ages but we had decided on it as our girl name before B was even conceived!!
