Ideas for first child!
Mon, 02-20-2012 - 12:16am

I'm only 8 weeks pregnant with my first child, but I am so excited and can't help but already narrow down our list of baby names! My fiance is very open to names and out of all the names I have thrown out there (and there have been A LOT) he has only shot down a few.

For a boy, I think the name would be Dawson Patrick. We both absolutely love that name.

As for girls, I love way too many names! And like I said, my fiance basically likes all of these names too. Just would like to see what everyone else thinks! The MN will be either Brielle or Ann. I would like to use Brielle, but for some names I think Ann sounds better and both of those MNs have meaning to us, so we'd be happy with either one!

Skylar Brielle - Skylar has been my favorite girl name since I was a teenager imagining what I'd name my kids - lol! still love it!

Kinley Brielle

Braylie Ann

McKenna (MN?)

Sienna (MN?)

Alexis Brielle

hello!! congrats on your pregnancy!! i like dawson patrick-dawson is not very common and i like the flow with patrick...that being said, i like most of your girls names-i really like skylar-its another unique name. skylar brielle is a really good name...i like seinna and mckenna too-but if you love skylar-i would use it. i have loved the name samantha since i was a kid-unfortunatly, i cant use it cuz my hubby has a cousin named this. and now one of our close friends is named samantha so its definitely out.:smileymad: good luck!!!

Dawson Patrick is nice.

Skylar is not my style, but if you've loved it forever, why not use it?

Out of all of the girls names you've listed I actually love Brielle the most. :) I'd use it as a first name! :)

Alexis is nice, Sienna is okay, the rest aren't my style. I do have a co-worker who just named her baby girl Sierra Rain :)

Here are some suggestions (mostly based off the style of Brielle) - they could be middle or first names: Audrey, Aubrey, Adele, Ava, Charlotte, Colette, Cosette, Elsie, Kendall, Lucille, Marlee, Mirabelle, Nicolette, Olivia, Rosalie, Sylvie.
