Names?

Anyone have any names picked out yet? I always have such a hard time naming so thought it would be fun if we shared some of the names we liked or are choosing and kept a running list. Let's try and keep them alphabetical by first name [add in middle names if you'd like] as much as we can for easy browsing. I'll start with a few I like and then let's copy and paste the list after that!

I like names that aren't gender neutral or too trendy or that definitely have a short version of the name. I know my personal list will be added to and scratched off many times in the coming months!

it's hard when you don't seem to like any of the G names, it makes sticking to your naming rule hard. But you'll find something - it will just click one day. And it may end up being one you have heard a bajillion times and didn't think you'd like and then you do!

I love the name Gabriel. But I'm biased because that's my son's name. :) Boys names are tough for us, but it's more because we have associations with a lot of them and the ones we love are already used by other family members' kids. I think we're waiting to find out gender before we really settle. Three more weeks! :(

Well, if the baby was a boy, his name would have been Toby Aaron but since we found out it's a GIRL today, her name most likely will be Tobi Erin.

It's so funny how the spelling can feminize or masculinize a name. I like that idea!

I really like the name Blair for a girl.... Maybe like Blair Olivia or something like that. I love the name Oivia, but its become way too popular now :(

You're right about Olivia. It is one of my favorite names too, but in high use. I loved Aiden when I was younger but look what happened there!

Tell me about it, I have an Ava lol. When she was born it wasn't even in the top 100 and now the past 6 years it's been #1 for my state. :/

I used ava as a middle name 12 years ago and no one had that name.

I have a hard time with names...and I need a girls name.

Glad this thread is started.......hope something I love comes along.

I do really like one name......but are you ever afraid in a couple years your feelings might change.?.?. That's a big worry for me.
