Apparently I hate every girl name right now. Names I used to like I no longer like. I looked at 1,000 names today and didn't like a single one. I think I'm just being picky or pregnancy has really gotten to my brain.
Names that were on our list from once upon a time:
Katelynn (or some other spelling derivative)
Nancy (does anyone else picture a 40 year old soccer mom on prozac?)
Any suggestions? Any of these names a serial killer or something? lol
unfortumately with nancy i think nancy grace
my favorites are katelynn..lily...and willow
are you doing middle names?
Oh good grief. Let's not go into middle names. My original thought was to do something from DH's family since DS's middle name is from my family. But MILs name is Rebecca Monica and SILs name is Cheryle Denise. I don't like Monica or Denise really. Of course I don't like anything.
DH has his favorites and is already trying to call her by these names. *sigh*
How did you pick Aiden? What do you like in a name in general (traditional, unique, certain sounds?)
I personally don't like Nancy much. I think Lilly and Willow sound the best with Aiden.

What does DH like?
I am partial to Claire and Alaina (or Elena/Elaina, etc). Other names I liked are Ella, Ellie, Quinn, and Lily. So from your list, I like Katelynn and Lilly. What about just Anna, rather than Annabelle? The only one I really don't care for is Nancy, but it's your baby!
Middle names - I used my middle name for DD1, then we used DH's middle name for Lainey. Now, don't shoot me if I'm wrong, but your DH's name is Chris, right (I could be wrong - sorry!). What about Christine?
He likes Katelynn and Annabelle. I hear Annabelle and think Annabelle Lee (Edgar Allen Poe). Probably doesn't help that Lee is my middle name. lol.
Christine is an interesting thought for a middle name.
Claire is off because it's my best friend's baby's name.
And Aiden was picked because it was the only boy name neither one of us hated. Seriously.
Thanks for thinking through this with me! I don't know what my deal is right now.
DH didn't shoot down Christine so I can put that on a new list of names that I don't immediately hate (which is about as good as I can get right now ha ha).
I really did used to love Annabelle. But Poe is always stuck back there. I think it's good to knock it off the first name list at least.
I've told DH that Karen and Nancy have to go. I just see soccer moms on meds. I'm naming a baby. Not a middle aged woman with issues.
i associate annabelle with a coworker i strongly disliked so it is my least favourite :P i like Anna though. it helps that we have a lovely person here with that name
Lilly is my favourite from your list.
other names i like are Lila, Elizabeth, Allison. i really like the classic names which seem to be making a comeback. do you have a certain style of names you like? were you planning to keep it A names or don't care?
