As a writer I feel compelled to apologize for using the word "generally" 3 times in 6 questions . . . :/

What are their names? Jensen Troy, and Blake Robert and Elaine Michelle are baking.

When/how did you and SO decide on their names? Did it change over the pregnancy? With Jensen we had his name before we found out the gender, this time it was a lot easier because instead of having to pick one of each gender we just picked 2 of each, and other then decided what the names would be if they were a boy and a girl we would each be getting the name we wanted. For instance - Jensen we both agreed on and loved. Blake was Rob's choice but mine was Elliot. He let me choose the middle names because they are family names. Robert for my husband obviously, and Kenneth for my grandpa (even though he is not biologically my grandpa). Then Rob wanted Lainey, but I wanted a more adult name but with Lainey as a nickname, so I chose Elaine and he finally caved a few weeks before we heard the genders at the first scan (two boys). Michelle is my mom's name. Our other name was Audrey (my grandma) and then Elizabeth for a middle name just because we liked it.



For those who are still planning pregnancies . . .

What are your top boy/girl names now? Why? Elliot Kenneth still definitely. No girl names right now but hey, I'm still pregnant with the twins, I have another 6 years to think of one lol!


Have your top names changed over time or are they generally the same? Oh definitely. Sometimes we get bored of the names we have, sometimes we hear something better, etc. Our middle names generally stay the same because they are family names though.


Do you generally prefer to decide on a name during the pregnancy, or after you meet the baby? What's your "naming strategy"? We like to brain storm while preparing to TTC, and actually TTC. However names we pick then NEVER end up being the names we use. Those are always decided during pregnancy.


Do you and SO generally agree on names, or no? We really do. I always thought my Robert John would love traditional names but he doesn't. He loves names like Lainey, Blake, and Jensen. While I find myself loving those, but also some traditional ones like Elliot and Elizabeth etc.
