Names

Ok, so we planned on using Henry Michael for babys name, but the more I think about the name, the more I just dont see my baby as a Henry. I still very much LOVE the name, I just dont think were going to use it. Ive narrowed down a list of names to the ones I really like. What do you ladies think of these names? Also, any middle name suggestions?

Stephan or Stefan
Zephyr
Corbin
Taylor
Remy
Jasper
Beau
River
Gavin
Dax
Luke
Alaric
Alec
Davis
Jamie or Jameson

My favs from your list are:

Corbin
Remy
Jasper
Gavin
Luke
Jameson

Haha, sorry, that didn't narrow it down all that much, but you picked a lot of names I liked. Biggrin

I refuse to even think or discuss names until we know what we're having. DH and I had an awful time agreeing on a name for T, and I imagine we'll have the same struggles this time around. Knowing that, I'm not interested in arguing about 2 names (one for a boy and one for a girl) when we'll only need one, so that whole conversation has been postponed. Lol

I like a couple of those names, but Luke the best. I also like Davis and Jameson.

Alissa, my DH said the exact same thing. Why pick out one of each when, after we find out, we can just pick one? I'm seriously thinking that this baby is going to be nameless.

Oh and, about a middle name. I like the middle name Michael. My brother's middle name is Jacob - and I think it "goes" with a lot of different names.

I really like Luke. That was #2 on our list after Henry. I also love Remy. But I know DH wouldn't go for it.

Great list ... I think if you keep going over your list, something will just click and feel right. As for middle names, we try and use family names for that.

I agree nice list. Picking names if very very difficult! I've decided not to stress that until I find out what I'm having.

Jessica - I swear you are doing yourselves a favor by waiting. LOL DH and I had several fights over a girl's name because I was hormonal and more importantly, the girl's name he liked was AWFUL. Then it all ended up being pointless because T was a boy anyway. My one comment on naming so far this time is "If it *is* a girl, we are NOT naming her Luriana. End of story."

"Luriana" is from a poem he likes (being an English teacher and all), and his whole idea was that we would paint the poem on one wall of the nursery. And I agree, it's a pretty poem and would be neat on the wall of a nursery, but it's an awful name and I refuse.

I like Luke, Corbin and Jasper from your lists.

Alissa I agree Luriana is not a great name-guys come up with the strangest reasons for picking names. My DH wanted to pick names so that the first letter of each name would spell a word when they were all put together. I nixed that one-I'm not going to be limited to one letter of the alphabet when picking a name for my child, plus what if we don't end up having enough kids to complete the word?

You could always change the name but still use the poem-the middle name would just have to end in an "ee" sound so it would still fit:p That's probably sacrilege to an English teacher though!
