Really don't want to jinx us...

But I think we have come up with a name...

Bunni Larue ... (and our last name is similar to Henderson).

Bunni is the short form for the Goddess Berenike who was the Bringer of Victory. Larue is my grandmother's name and in Latin means "route or pathway" or in French can mean "red-headed one". Red hair does run in our family Smile

What do you think? Anyone else wanna share names?

I think it's a good name. I like that it means something to you. We just pick names we both like (which is very difficult).
This boy is Kole Ezra.

For the first time, I'm tempted to name my kid after someone. My dad though hated his own name and would be very angry if we named our son after him in any way, so we'll just keep it the way we have it.

I especially like *anything* that has personal meaning! Just wondering, was the name Larue ever spelled differently? I speak French, and it fascinates me to hear about spellings. I know that Cajun French spelling is entirely different, and wondering if it was Cajun or something? Sorry for the randomness.. Blum 3

My little man was named when I was in high school. lol His name will be Elijah Nathaniel. I haven't met him yet, but because of my (and my husbands) hair/eye color, I am imagining a little blonde/blue eyed Eli... SO EXCITED!

Aw she has a pretty name! I like it!

Since I am officially full term I'm going to finally share our boy's name! Lol. We're going to name him Desmond Jensen T. (our last name ends with an "o" sound).
I'll even tell you my dorky way of how I came up with it lol. Although actually that was just a name on a list I had come up with and told DH to narrow it down. Have any of you ever seen the show Lost? Lol. Yes, we got his name from that show, and DH was skeptical at first and then he kept saying "But it's such a cool name..." lol so we stuck with that (his other favorite was Felix) and then after we got the first name I picked a few J names (DH's middle name begins with a J) and I put them together to see which I thought sounded best, and then I asked DH what he thought and he immediately liked Desmond Jensen (which I got Jensen from actor Jensen Ackles, who plays on Supernatural, which is one of DH's favorite shows...lol!)

So that is how we came up with his name. And seriously, I am so ready to meet him!!!

I forgot to add that the other night I finally dreamed of my little boy and it was exciting lol. He had brown hair and blue eyes and he was so sweet looking. Now I dunno how likely the blue eyed part might be, and he may actually get red hair so who knows! But it made me real excited to meet him!

Ohhh, I like it!
I'm totally still looking for names, ahh.
We've got a few to choose from for a boy but still not settled on anything to even have on the list for a girl. I was asking my other BB for girl name ideas because we need something not so common and strong to mesh well with the names of our other kids (Ryland and Odin). A lot of the things I like, DH shoots down and vice versa.

Katie - sidenote- I looooooooooooooove Lost, and Desmond was such a great character too. That show would single-handedly almost convince me to name a child Charlie, too!

Lol as funny as it is, Dh and I had decided on his name last year when we decided we would try and get pregnant. At that time a friend of mine was about to give birth to a boy and she and her DH hadn't chosen a name (he was deployed so it was hard for them to discuss names in depth) and finally they settled on the name....Ben. And now all I can think of is that they may have an evil son LOL!

Cute and different. I really like that it has a meaning. We are using my middle name that goes back generations which is Lee I really don't like it but I am the only child and this is our last so I think we should... KWIM.

I am thinking we are going to just call this little one baby boy ugh... We can't agree on a name. We have picked 2 names and I have changed my mind both times. I want the right name. Both of my other children were named by the time I was 6 months. This is crazy!

Here is what I like tell me what you think... I know it is a big name but really I don't care about that!
Brentlee Ryker Aley is our last name since it is my screen name I don't mind sharing it. We would call him Ryker which I totally love my DH isn't so fond of it. He is still fighting for Carson Lee but it rhymes with Carter a little 2 much for me but I really like the name so who knows!

I really like the name Ryker. It's very different and unique, which is what I like in names! And I like Brentlee because it's different as well. I think Brentlee Ryker flows really well. Sometimes don't you wish you could tell DH "Too bad, I'm the one giving birth, I get to choose?" lol!

My DH is actually said I can name him that but he really hates it so I kinda feel bad.

I love unique names and ones that have meaning! Of course in saying that, our little girl's name is the only one out of the four names (two boy, two girl) that we picked out that doesnt have a special family meaning. We've chosen Camille Elise Bird (my last name is my screen name too, so I dont mind sharing)

Kelly, I love the name that you picked out too!

Yes, I think the French spelling of Larue can be different... and it may even be two words like la rue.

I like Brentlee, Ryker, and Carson Smile So I am nooo help there lol.

I also love Camille, and thought about that one for this baby, and Elise was one of our middle name ponderings. My middle name is Elizabeth, but we have a niece named Elizabeth, so we couldn't go with that. We considered Elise, but it just didn't flow as Bunni Elise... it was too much "E" sound in the middle.

Our other two are Sylvia Joleigh and Justus Brooks. Sylvia was the Goddess of the Forest, mother of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. Jo is a middle and first name throughout DH's family, and Leigh is my mom's middle name. Justus just fit and we both liked it. DH is a Jonathan of a John of a John of a John, and I knew I didn't want to name DS John or Jonathan, but I liked the similar "J" theme. And Brooks is DH's middle name.
