Okay, so we have a decent amount of ladies who have found out the gender, or are going to soon.
Time to ask the question again... do you have any names picked out for your LO (little one)?
We are team green, but we have a girl's name picked out already. Boys names are a different story. Since we have two boys already, we both feel we've used the only names we agree on already. I have slowly expanded my list to show to DH this week, and spend about 10 minutes each day looking for more to put on it. I want to have the middle name of Allen after my dad (Craig Allen). I want Allen cause I think it goes with more things than Craig.
Here's my list so far (in no particular order):
Jeffry Allen (probably gonna take this one off myself)

Oddly enough I have more of an idea of girl names than boy names, I used to be sure of my girl name but now I'm a little more open.
for a girl I like
Eliana or Liliana, middle name of Faith or Claire
and for a boy I have NO idea, dh has said he wouldn't mind a Jr but I think that'd be a little odd for a second son and he still likes Isaiah which was an option with DS but if this is a boy I'd like to do a little more searching (not even sure I spelled it right )

I really like Conner, I've always really liked that name but we have a family member and several friends that have used it so it's out for us I still don't know what I'm having But we are in the same boat as you are with boys names. Picking Colin's name was like pulling teeth with my DH, he vetoed pretty much every name I liked and Colin was on my list of names I could live with but didn't love. It's yet another reason why I am really really pushing for this baby to be a girl!! That being said, we have a girls name we both like and a boys name that he has said he likes that I'm okay with. We have no boys middle names and a TON of girls middle names!
Boys name: Rylan
Falynn Jean (Jean is my middle name and my grandmothers middle name but I really don't like it)
No updates from me since the last time we did this thread. Once we're past the u/s, I will probably bring it up again.
Mulling it over in my own head, there are one girl name (first and middle) and two boy names (first, with a potential middle) that really pop out to me, but I'm not sure if DH is sold on those particular ones, or if we need to expand the list again.
There are 2 names right now that are in the running he likes Jayden. I want the middle name of Patrick which he is fighting but won't win. And a long story I don't want to get into but if he decides not to step it up and I end up a single mom then it will be Nathan Patrick. Both with my last name. I always wanted a Nate, there was a friend in college, yes only a friend, who was adorable and really sweet and all the Nathans I have taught have been great kids so its a good name.
This will be our SIXTH boy and I have no more names - I've looked at so many baby naming websites it's not even funny and both dh n' I are still not finding anything we like. We already had a girl name picked out.
The few names we've played with are Cedric, Lochlan (or Loughlin which is the traditional Irish way to spell it) pronounced kind of like locklin or locklan, Rylan, Paxton & Eli. Right now Eli and Lochlan are the top runners - there were a few others but I can't remember them so I guess we didn't like them that much anyways
Today I brought it up at Lunch, and DH had none to add besides his same old "say it cause it bugs her names" (Bob, Sue, etc). But DS#1 said he likes the name Joey.. and it's growing on me already.
What do you guys think of the name Joey Allen? I still hope this is our girl, but I think I might be okay with a Joey.

Since our tech said she's 85% sure it;s a girl, we've been focusing on a middle name for the girls name we chose. Right now DH is mulling over the middle name he suggested a few weeks ago. Initially I vetoed it when I came up with it(before even telling DH I had thought of it) but he suggested it and it's growing on me. So right now we're on
