I dont think I'll know til delivery day!
Mara is the only name we both KIND of like- Kevin likes more then me, but I feel like if were both "settling" we might as well settle on a name at least one of us loves.
I really like Blair, and he said OK to that (probably after hearing all of my other 'horrible' names Blair didnt sound so bad)
and I have a bunch of others I really like, Paisley and Sawyer and Reese and on and on... but he hates all... haha..

I feel like I'll narrow it down to a few, then when I see her hopefully I'll just know!!

Sarah- I really like Charlotte- I love when twins have the same first letter.. Callie and Charlotte.. Callie and Charlie.. hehe

I think Callie and Maddy is pretty cute too Smile Charlotte has become pretty popular lately which is the only reason I wouldn't personaly chose it. But it's a beautiful name.

Cait- I love Sawyer!! So cute! If this baby had been a girl I had Alayna Snow picked for her. I also had Clara, Mathilda, and Violet on the list. Oh well!! Boys names are so much harder Beee

Also, I have to say by faaaar my favorite name site is nameberry.com.... LOVE how they have lists of certain types of names instead of just millions of names on one list!

At the top of our list right now:

Girl- Blakely, Piper, Amaris, Carys
Boy- Sawyer, Reed, Rhett

We probably won't know for sure til baby is born and we see him/her.

Our boy's name is set... It has been since Cecelia was born in '07. If its a boy he will be Chester Ross (Chester was my DH's granddad, who he was especially close to and Ross is my DH and FIL's middle names). When we first started talking about using Chester, we got a lot of grief, but now it's kind of grown on everyone.

As for a girl's name... Nothing. I've already used the ones I really love, so I have more searching to do.

Rachel~ I'd never seen the Nameberry site. That is a good one! I've always gone to Baby Name Wizard, which is somewhat similar, but there is a free section and a subscriber section. If we still don't have a girls name in 10ish weeks, I'll probably do the subscription.

I'm liking your ideas! I love the name Charlotte, of course. Smile We've yet to meet another one so maybe it's more popular in some areas?

If it's a boy, it'll be Simon Henry (picked out about 6 years ago).
If it's a girl, it'll be Stella Marie....unless we change our minds!

We find out on Wednesday. Exciting!!!

Wow, I don't check in over here often enough. Looks like Sawyer is catching on! Smile I am also a huge nameberry fan! For us if its a boy it will be either Sawyer or Emerson, and if it's a girl... we've got nothing we can agree on. I'm really loving hippy girl names like Winter, and Ocea... but I'm pretty sure those names aren't going to fly!

We're undecided on a name. We have one in mind but nothing definite. We decided that we're keeping that part a surprise though...if we ever agree on one. LOL! Smile

I had it on my list for my second daughter and then like two other women I know used it. It is super cute and has lots of adorable potential nicknames. In 2000 it was number 289 on the most popular baby name list from the Social Security website, and in 2011 it was number 27!

Baby boy will be Boyd Matthew. Its the first time ever DH and I easily agreed on a boys name, let alone so early in my pregnancy. Its locked in for sure at this point, we have no other ideas, nothing else we like and since we picked it out we haven't talked any further about names, this is it.

We are naming her Alexis Mae L.
Alexis is a name DH LOVED LOVED and originally we were going to name DD it but there was some "drama" with his ex-wife (she got pregnant a month before me and she had always told him she HATED the name when they were married, they never had kids together, anyway long story short we told a mutual friend we were naming her Alexis and she delivered and named her baby Alexis. We just couldn't name her that anymore)
Ok so fast forward. When we found out it was a girl I asked DH what he thought for names. We decided we didn't want to do 2 "H" names. I asked if he had a name in mind and he said yes that he still loves Alexis and he doesn't care about his ex-wife or any of that. I said ok because I love Lexi also. Mae is his mom's middle name.
We had a name picked out before we even saw the Dr after the ultrasound Lol.

That's a funny story, Chaise. Good for you guys.
I know I've told you before, but I love the name Boyd. It's strong and masculine and different.

So I mentioned this thread to my DH yesterday and he confessed that he knew that Charlotte had gotten popular and had been hiding it from me. It wasn't that popular when we came up with her name in 2009, but has increased in popularity since then. There isn't anything we can do about that. I just don't really go for the supremely popular names so it gives me a twinge of dangit. At least I'm going into it knowing both of our names for the third are somewhat popular. Mina will be our only child with a more unique name I guess.

When we picked Gracie name in 2003 it was still an old fashioned name...... we diden't know any other Gracie's well now there is Gracie's/Grace's everywhere!!!! And my ds is Conner we spelled in Conner instead of Connor-due to Conner was my Grandma's maiden name we have run into a few conner's but not many seems like most of them are 10 and + . Seems like whatever name you pick you run into hearing it more once your child is born. I really am leaning towards Callie and maybe Madeline"Maddy" I know Madeline seems to be pretty popular. But I hate the thought of all my kids having C-names except my dd.(Since Charlotte was our other option). Why do names have to be so difficult to decide.... My brothers twins are going to be Jacob and Benjamin !!!

I am going through the same thing with my daughter Ivy! I hadn't ever met or heard of anyone else having a daughter named Ivy, and since we had her it seems like everyone is naming their girls that, including freaking Beyonce!! I was so pissed when I heard she named her baby that cause I knew it would only increase the popularity. Nothing we can do though, like you said. And I do love both our daughters names.

Our boy will be Bankston Taylor Seago. Bankston is DH grandmother's maiden name, Taylor is my maiden name and of course Seago is the last name. I have Victoria picked out if we had a girl, but Banks it is!
