You wait until you have children, then choose a name that you love for that child, that hasn’t been used by a family member already.

@Haruyou:  I have wanted my entire life to have a little girl and name her Rose Mary after my grandmother. FI absolutely HATES the name and will not budge. 🙁

@Haruyou:  Don’t worry about it until you’re actually pregnant?

Don’t worry about it until you’re pregnant.  If you find out you’re having a girl, then you can decide (with your SO) if you truely want to use the name or not.

@Haruyou:  Well I considered it as a middle name but my sister (older and should have at least 1 more child before we even think about trying) said if she has a girl she is using Rose as a middle name and doesnt want me using the name at all. Idk..it just sucks cause I’ve ALWAYS wanted that name. 🙁

If it is really important to you to pass on both names then I would give them both to the first girl you have, since you never know if you will have another one or not.

We wanted something uncommon, masculine sounding, and somethimg we could both agree on For a boy. 

We chose Beckett.

@Haruyou:  What about Delaney for any girl and Ellis for a boy. If you end up with two girls, use Ellis as the second middle name. If you end up with two boys, use Delaney as a middle name (since it sounds like a last name, I think this could work).

@Haruyou:  I think you’re way overthinking this. You’re nowhere near having kids, but you’re stressing over their names, and that just seems pointless to me. Pick names that you like, if you want to, and then wait and see what happens. FI and I have a girl’s name and a boy’s name picked out, but that doesn’t mean that we’ll have one of each.

Well, you might not have ANY girls, and then you’ll be stressing yourself out very needlessly! If you feel very strongly about the names Ellis and Delaney, use them in the name if you have a daughter. If you have another daughter, you find another name you like.

We’re picking from a long list of names we like, with the knowledge that the baby could be born, and that name could be totally wrong for them!

My Grandma has a story about having the name Patricia picked out for my aunt. Then she gave birth, and said “She’s not a Patricia, she’s a Sandra!”

I’m not a huge fan of “saving” names for children you may never have. In your situation, I’d probably use both names you feel strongly about for the first girl you have (if you have one.) If you end up with another daughter, you’ll find another name you love when that time comes. Or you may only have sons and that just may be the hand you’re dealt. I agree that it’s probably not worth stressing over at this point in time.
