Names?

I know it's early, but has anyone thought of names yet? We are debating between a couple, but pretty much have it narrowed down. These are our favorites, in order:

Girl:
1- Stella Quinn
2- Lilah Quinn

Boy:
1- Garrett Quin
2- Oliver Quin

DD1's name is Sienna Grace, so I like the single syllable middle name. FIL's name is Quin so we want to incorporate that somehow. I have the most amazing in-laws so I want to do something special for him. I also like first names that cannot be shortened. Smile

Tell me what you think. If you hate them, my feelings won't be hurt. Smile

Anyone else have a list to share? Smile

I LOVE Oliver!! So cute! I like all of your names you have picked. We have decided on first names so far, Diesel for a boy and Elaina for a girl. I just can't come up with middle names to go with them.

I LOVE the middle name Quinn (for a girl or boy) I have been telling DH all along that the middle name needs to be Quinn. Smile I have no idea about the first names though. We've talked a little bit about it, but definately have not come to an agreement. For girls I like Amalie and Genevieve (pro-nounced the Anglicized way - "Jenna-veve") DH likes Brinley and Genevieve (pronounced the French way "Jahn-vee-ev") No clue yet about boy's names....

DH won't even TALK to me about names. He said with my very first pregnancy that he wanted his dads name incorporated into our kids name if it's a boy. So, his dads name was Charles. I'm not a big fan of charles so that's gonna have to be a middle name. For a girl I like Ashley Ryan.. my middle name is Ryan and everyone thought it was weird growing up but I loved it. It's different. For a boy I like Logan, but he said "Hell no" when I threw it out there one night, so... I guess that's not gonna be it...lol

My Choices for a girl are Lily Jean , and Evelyn Grace. For a boy we like Leo David.... it's the only one we can think of that we like right now..

I love all your names. My friend has a baby named Stella and DH's aunt is Lilah, otherwise those would be in my top 10. Quin is super cute too, its on my middle name list, but our last name ends with "n" so it doesn't flow well.

We are most likely doing Lucy Gray for a girl and Henry Gray for a boy. DH doesn't like talking names...so he says those names are it. But I've had a list of baby names since I was like 10 years old...I like to talk about them and find the perfect one. DH nixed most of my names, so I'm having to compromise.

So if its twins we are considering Mira or Gemma for a girl and Eamon or Lucas for a boy. I love both Leo and Oliver but DH says no. Boo.

I have had Harper for a girl's name in mind for the past fifteen years (seriously) and ironically now it's one of the highest rising names in popularity. I am still bitter about it. We may or may not go with it now since I hate the idea of her being one of three Harpers in her kindergarten class!

My DH's father passed away last year and his name was Charles. I hate Charles as a boy name but I'm considering Charlotte as a girl's name.

I also like Lucas for a boy or Hope for a girl.

Either way baby will have my maiden name as a second middle name like my son does (it's three letters and one syllable - not a mouthful to add).

A little late responding...

Well my girl name is a definite... Elizabeth. We don't do middle names, so that would be it. Boys on the other hand, not even a clue.

Boy name is figured out: Miles Patrick

My dad passed away a March 9, 2011 and his name was Patrick. Tom and I both agreed on using his name as a middle name for our boy if we ever have one. I love the name and I dont care if we have a girl or a boy but really hope I get the chance to use it one day!

Girl name.... have no idea, we've bounced around a few names but nothing certain yet.

I love the name Emma but I know it was being used like crazy for a while... what do y'all think? Still overused?

Emma was used a lot but I think its not at the top anymore. I really love it. Because of the popularity though, I was going for Gemma...which is pretty common in europe but not the US for some reason.

Miles is cute too!

Well if you ask the hubby our names are set....Kyle Patrick or Hannah Marie. Kyle because he just really likes it, Patrick is my brothers name. Hannah is what my dad wanted to name me and Marie is my middle name. If you ask me, I have no idea. LOL I like both names he has picked out, i'm just not sure I love them. I did suggest Sage Marie for a girl and he did like that, but I still think he would rather have Hannah. I'm in a losing battle unless I can come up with something to really knock his socks off. Haha! My dad suggested keeping him out of the room when it's time for me to fill out the form for the birth certificate though and that way I can have what I want. LOL

I have ALWAYS loved the name Hannah! One of my cousins is named Hannah so it makes it off limits for me. She's a first cousin and silly as it sounds we have an understanding in our family.

Maybe you two could come to a compromise? My husband has vitoed every girl name I love almost... its frustrating. LOL
