Yes I'm crazy early and obsessed!
What names are you thinking of?
Any ideas for me to go along with Ethan and Olivia. Obviously I don't care about having a "unique" name, I just like classics that aren't already used in our circle of friends or close family.
We've been talking names since we decided to get pregnant. DH got to name Damion, so I will get naming rights over the next LO. I can think of lots of boys names, but no girls names that I really like.
OMG, I'm a name FREAK! I had Kennedy's name picked before I met DH...thank goodness he liked it too.
Olivia was one we loved too...but now one of my high school friends has an Olivia and it's also way too popular for us right now. I like to stay out of the top 100. Also, Sophia was another one we loved but we now know two Sophias.
We normally keep names secret until the baby is born so that people don't give us their 'opinion' when we don't really want it. Right now we both like Marshall for a boy but we don't really have any girl names. It's funny because last time we had no boy names picked but we had a girl name....
Here are some ideas for you. These are some girl names at my daughter's daycare and friends:
- Teija & Tayah
- Leo & Leonardo
- Cohen / Koan
DH has a boys name picked out, Mason. I don't mind the name but I do NOT like it with our last name. I like Jack. I haven't even thought of girls names. With DS we had a girl's name picked (which became DD's name). It took a while to find a name for him! We did not share DS name before he was born, it was hard! With DD we did share her name, and got some neat personalized gifts. I have no idea if we will share before birth with number three or not, it is kinda fun both ways I guess!
I like Marshall but don't think DH can get over the association with the character from "How I met your mother".
Logan is on the list, I like Hunter, but doesn't go with Ethan & Olivia well I don't think. We already know a Mason in our circle of friends.
I do like Emma and Julia. We know a Samantha, and Ava. Benjamin is Ethan's middle name and my DH's name so love it but already used! Our best friends have a Nolan, which is too close to Noah. I have an uncle and cousin Thomas. I love Joshua, but our firends son is named that. Lots of the other names sound stupid with out last name. Mostly because our last name is short and it's a first name so we have to stay away from all the last name as a first name names. Otherwise the name sounds backwards!
Basically I love names, but hate them too! LOL
We haven't watched How I Met Your Mother. I didn't even know there was a Marshall in there! DH's dad's middle names was Lewis (her passed away when DH was 19) so that might be the boy middle name. DH already has a cousin with Lewis for a first name so that's out.
Our last name ends in -er and I hate rhyming, so baby names ending in -er are out. Too bad because I like Carter! The funny thing is my name ends in -er too and my first and last name both start with 'h'. Ugh! When DH and I started dating I told him we couldn't get married because my name would be ridiculous! Look at me now! LOL
