To go along with the thread about the least favorite baby names, I thought we could start one with the most favorites. I am totally not even thinking about having babies anytime soon but our friends just brought their newborn home from the hospital yesterday and it got FI and I talking about our future kids names…
Here are our favs:
- Eliza Marae (by far my current fav)
- Stella Grace
- Zoe Elizabeth
- Lila Marae
- Quinn Marae
- Rachel Marae
- Khloe Grace
- Jackson Anthony (Only because I want to call him Jax. Yes, we love SOA!)
- Sebastian Scott
- Sawyer James
- Micah Thomas
Incase you’ve sensed a theme with some of the girl names, Marae (muh-ray) is my middle name and I absolutely love it. I’ve ever met anyone with the same name.
So, what are your favorite baby names?

I feel lame for having picked out names, haha! We are at least 3-4 years from even trying, but I liked Ethan Gregory and Emily Grace.

My FI and I can’t agree on any boy names! He would like to name his kid after him and have him be a jr, I’m OK with the idea.
I love the name Sebastian though, FI doesn’t. I also have a godson named Jax but his is spelled Jaxson.
For Girls we like:

While they may be really popular/overused, I’ve been set on Emma and Evan for years and years. At least our middle names are more unique!
Emma Talisa (Talisa is MIL) & Evan Angelo or Evan Vincent (middle names are our grandfathers).
I also love Lena and Kenley for girls and Aaron and Caleb for boys.

James for a boy and Briar for a girl.

*sigh* I love the name Olive. And it’s everywhere.
AND I love the name Charles, nn Charlie. But DH’s name is Madson and that would make it Charles Madson. Not good.
So we’re probably going to have to think a little harder when the time comes.
I think Marae is also beautiful! And you know, I also really love the similar, plain ‘ol Mary.

@JennyW1: Thanks! When I was little I hated my middle name and would tell everyone it was Marie. Now that I’m older I totally appreciate the uniqueness of it. It is kind of annoying that everyone always pronounces it wrong but whatevskies!

@JennyW1: i like olive, but loooooove olivia!
we’ve decided if we even have kids, if we have a girl she’d be named anne after my late grandma/his mom- it’s both their middle names. i dont even really think about boy names because i dont like most of them…and i secretly dont want boys, haha (two younger brothers growing up made that decision for me!)

We’re a year from trying, but we do have two names chosen.
Girl: Helen Katherine (His grandmother, my grandmother)
Boy: Henry Arthur (My grandfather, his grandfather)

Charlotte Faye (My grandma’s and her mom’s name)
Since we are in the South, these would be abbreviated Ellie Mae, Charlie Faye, or Abby May
Edison James (James is SO’s grandpa)
Elliot Martin (Martin is my grandpa)
Others I like but probably can’t have:
Autumn (only if I’m lucky enough to have one in the season)
August (Again, only if he’s born in August)

I swear that there is another thread like this one. lol. oh well- i do enjoy these kinda of threads
I love family names. My middle name is after my grandma who I never met. And Fi is a Jr. Family names are important to both of us.
Clarence, Lucille, Florence, Ethel, Marie, Henry ( Ihave a nephew named Henry- so that one is out. lol). John, Stanley, Edward, Robert, Julius. But my all time favorite is Einer!!! It was my grandpa’s name. I love it. Maybe not for a first name but def a middle name. I have never heard of anyone with that name.
For a girl: Lucy Rose. Lucy is such a popular name right now though. But Lucy would be in honor of my grandma and mom, Rose would be for my Fi’s aunt who was murdered.

Before Liam and Ephraim were popular, I loved the names Liam Andrew and Ephraim Matthew and Binks (from a movie). I love the names Charlotte, Amara, Americus (from a movie), April/June/May/August, and Autumn.
EDITTED TO ADD: I also love the names Virginia Elizabeth (sad Elizabeth is very popular) and Marjorie Cordelia (Delia for short)
