as I’m still early in my pregnancy, I have a list of probably like 40 girls names and 25 boy names I like, haha! I wanna make sure I haven’t missed any amazing names!
what are your hands-down absolute all time favourite baby names? (First and middle)
Post # 2
Boys: Sam, Nick, Jack, Max
Girls: Grace, Piper, Elise
I didn’t list any middle names because I don’t understand the fixation. I know zero people who use their first and middle names together. I would just pick a family name for the middle.

There are a lot of girls names that I love but ones that my husband and I both love are: Chloe, Juliette and Aria.
Boy names are a lot harder for us to agree on! My husband doesn’t seem to like any! But some of my favorites are: Beckett, Emmett, and Liam.
We haven’t given much thought to middle names. We’ll probably just end up using one from our list that we didn’t use as a first name. We don’t want to use any family names so that’s out. I think middle names is where I will get to use the names I love that my husband isn’t completly on board with since he doesn’t care about middle names.

While doing some genealogy, I came across a distant ancestor of mine: Aldegundam van Kevelaar. I’m forced to assume she was a bulletproof giant robot from the Space Netherlands. Would I name my child Aldegundam, even after finding out there are a lot of Aldegundams and Aldegundas in my family? Probably not. But it is probably my favorite. 🙂
Middle names being chosen just for taste and not because of cultural or family tradition was honestly something I had never, in all my years, fully realized was a thing until I started hanging out here. In a lot of my friends’ cases, middle names in their families are given for a grandparent – I have one friend where he and his six brothers all have the same middle name. In my father’s family, the middle name was always the first name of a godparent. In my mother’s (more traditional) family, your middle name was your baptismal patron saint’s name. But if I went with that, we’d probably have an Aldegunda Dymphna running around the world, cursing the universe for existing. And I probably shouldn’t do that to a child!
(On the far opposite of Aldegundam, I’ve always been very fond of Ann and Dana.)

My favourite boy name was Max. Then my mom got the cutest puppy and I named him Max. Suits him way better than any human boy I can imagine 😂
