Who's Selected a Name?

One of the more fun parts of pregnancy (and often one of the more frustrating parts!) is selecting the perfect name for baby.

Oh, I really like those names! I love how you are honoring your family with them. :)

We have come up with our current favorites (though we are not committing to anything yet). Colin Wilhelm (Will's middle name) or Evelynn Susann (my middle name and -lynn after my mom, my mom's middle name was also Susann). Will's last name (and soon to be mine!) is Celtic and that's a big part of his family identity so we considered that when picking out names.

CUTE! I really like that name. I'm glad you were able to find one you both like. :)

Yup, we found out last week we are having a boy. We chose Jackson Hunter. Jackson is firm for the first name, my husband changes his mind about the middle name a lot, but keeps coming back to Hunter, so I'm pretty sure that is what it will be. :D

I love that you are using namesakes. What a great way to honor the people in your life that mean so much!

katiebeth22,

Did you find out that you are expecting a boy? If so, have you been able to find a boy name you both like?

Choosing a name was actually the easiest part for us. We had discussed it years ago, when a friend was choosing baby names and found that we both agreed.

We chose Katey (a name that we both love) Eliza (my paternal grandmother's name) for a girl, and Jesse (again, one we both love) James (his father's name) for a boy.

We are expecting a girl, so Katey Eliza it is. I love having the name picked early, as I started calling her by her name as soon as we found out the sex.

We picked the names a few days after we found out---actually, I already had the names pretty much picked, and hubby loved them. If it's a girl it will be Jasmine Jennifer, a boy will be Caidan Michael. The middle names are namesakes-Jennifer after my best friend, and Michael after hubby's stepdad who passed away a few years back

We have a girl name selected, Lucia Grace. But no boy name yet. We are struggling finding a boy name we both can love. We have very different taste in names and were lucky to find a girl name we both like. We find out what we are having in three weeks, so we will find out then if we can abandon the boy search. :smileyhappy:
