Baby Names

So I know it is way early, but I was NOT the one to bring this up in my house. (Just wanted to clear that up Wink ) LOL DH is more excited about this one than any of my other pregnancies and he asked about names. We have a girl's name we like, but no middle name and we are still up in the air about a boys name. He REALLY wants a girl, but I am not sure his family has any x-chromosomes! Anyway, he decided it was a good idea to go through his Clive Cussler novels to look for boy names, ROFL. No honey, Dirk Pitt is not at the top of my list for a boy!

LOL! My DH refuses to discuss names until we know the gender at 20 weeks. He thinks it's a waste of time to choose names for a gender we're not having... it is fun to think about it though Smile

Picking out names is fun! We like to spout out names and say yes or no to them. We like to have a name picked out before the gender scan since we know it's probably going to be a boy! We don't yet have a name for this one yet.

Good luck picking out names!

I've been trying to get DH to narrow some down. I kept shooting them out to him and he's like no, no, no.. So I told him to go find some and then bring them to me. Then I'd know what I was up against! lol.. But I think your DH has it right, Yaeli.. wait until you find out what you're having then worry about it. Lol

Yaeli - My DH is EXACTLY the same. Well, actually shortly after I got this BFP, he did initiate a name discussion one night... But it was just that once, we didn't get far, and it hasn't been mentioned again, haha. We really both refuse to mess with it until after the gender scan. We both find it stressful enough to try to pick out one name, let alone two names of different genders, hahah. So narrowing the options down by half makes it a lot easier.

As for names, we try to go with names that people are familiar with, but you don't necessarily know 20 other people with the same name. If we had a girl, she'd likely get the middle name Ann since that's my middle name, my mom's middle name, my grandma's middle name, haha. We also try to use a family name for the middle name. DS1's middle name is my DH and my FIL's first name. DS2's middle name is my dad's middle name.

I am not too interested in looking at names either until the U/S. DS was named after my grandfather. He died when I was 12 from lung cancer and I had helped care for him in his last few months. He was on a feeding tube and all kinds of stuff. It was a little weird that Jack started life on a feeding tube and my grandfather ended his with one. I am not sure if we will use a family name even for a middle. I am not fond of any of the rest ha ha. I like "older" more victorian type names.

Here's an article projecting the next overly-popular names based on growth over time. They say these names may be the next "Aiden". So if you don't want the wickedly popular names, you may want to avoid these!

:lurk: Maximiliano? I think that was how it was spelled. Wow.

I think it's too funny that DH's last name (obviously, my last name now too) has been spotted on other websites has a Surname on the rise as a first name. Bahahaha, Like I'm really going to name my kid Smith Smith...LOL. I mean, that's not my last name, but you get the point..

I noticed that too! My maiden name was on there as a popular name in England but one climbing in the US too. Weird!
