Yes, let’s do it.
I love hearing your choices for baby names. There are so many to choose from! Do you go classic and elegent, or funky and fresh? So do you have a list? Tell me!
I have had a list since 2004 (!!!) and i keep it fairly up to date. There are some names i adore (Elena) which Mr. Swizzle hates so they have had to be deleted. But here are my current top picks.
Boys: Wyatt, Weston, Kieran, Cain, Emmett
Girls: Vivienne, Clara, Eden, Summer, Fiona

We really liked Andrew James for a boy, but ended up having a girl! We had a short list of names that we liked for a girl… Grace, Evelyn, Emma (too popular now), Eleanor, Meredith, Claire, and Clara and ended up with Eleanor Joanne. We like Amelia too, but hadn’t thought of it until after she was born.

@Swizzle: Hope I can get some good name ideas from this list! We have the perfect boy name that we both love, but as our luck would have it we are having a girl. We can’t decide on any names we both like. 🙁

We flip flop on boys, but Jameson seems to be the current winner!

Girls: Maeve Marie, Meaghan Elizabeth, Heather Anne
Boys: Blake Edward, John Edward, or Laird Edward (Edward is a family name)
Love your names of Keiran and Vivienne. I saw you had Weston, did you ever think of Wesley?

Boys: None. I love Alexander, he hates it, he loves Julius, I hate it… With every name we’ve ever heard.
Girls: Annabelle Mae (First and middle), which is what we will be naming our first daughter! And we’re thinking Aurore and Rosalie for middle names for other kids (which have ALWAYS been on my “list”!)

We’re going to TTC next year so baby names are on my mind a lot these days!!
Girls: Cecilia (after my grandmother), Elizabeth, Rosalie, Sophia
Boys: I’ve always liked the name James but my DH is afraid that it would turn into the nickname Jim (that’s his uncle’s name). So none really for boys. 😛

We had picked out Lucian Alexnander for a boy many years ago… but I’m pregnant with a girl. I think we’ve narrowed the list to:
I call her Little Luciana. My husband doesn’t object, but he’s clear that she has not yet been names.

@Mrs_Amanda: Autumn totally used to be on my list, then i switched to Summer lol.
@fall2014: I LOVE Maeve Marie. Marie was my top choice for a girl, and then my sister used a variation of it and i cant use it now. Boo. I like Wesley, just not as much as Weston.
@BrandNewBride: I love Mae as a middle name!
@Emma20130601: No gonna lie i was just looking up Cecilia on Nameberry, couldn’t decide if i liked Cecilia or Celia better…
@Mrs. Gremmlin: I seriously adore all your combos. They are gorgeous.

I love Beckett for a boy, but dh hates it boo 🙁 So we are looking at Hudson or Jaxon maybe, but still definitely up in the air.
I think for girls we are pretty set on Lillian Ray. But some other names are Avery, Everly, and Sophia, but I worry about popularity with all these names.

@Swizzle: For girls I loved Clara and Cecelia (call her Cece).
For boys I looooove Everett, but SO hates it. We have agreed on a really awesome name that I’m not sharing yet. I never see it on these lists, but it’s not weird! Our second runner up was Reid/Reed. He also loved Nathan, but I squashed it bc I knew an ahole Nathan growing up.

I loved Emma, but its way too popular… Everly but its too famous… MacKenzie but I feel like that is overdone and since I’ve liked it since the 80’s it seems blah now…. Since I am not pregnant with our first girl we compromised and her name will be Alyssa Joann
Boys I’ve always like Zachary and Matthew.. but in DH’s family there’s a tradition so if our next is a boy he’ll be Tyler

For a boy, I love Ansel, Elias, Owen, Sage. (Yes yes I know Ansel is a condom brand in Australia as bees have told me in the past but whatever.)
For a girl, I love Amara, Astrid, Simone, Arden, and Sage again.
Not going to TTC for a couple years yet, but it’s fun to think about.
