We have a short list, Kathyrn Rose, Elijah Henry, Charlotte Grace, Hannah Olivia, and Thomas Rhys. Girl names are so much easier! We talked about it when we decided we were ntnp and letting whatever happens, happen. I am still not sure which we will actually use first.

We have some of them.  We know we will use family names for middle names.  We ideally want two girls and two boys (2 bio and 2 adopted).

The girls will be:

Evangeline (nickname Lena), unsure of middle

Alessandra Glynn (nickname Sasha)

One boy will be named Xavier Stephen.

We aren’t sure of the other boy name yet, but here is the list we like:

Brooks, Sebastian, Declan, Wilder, Beckett, Elliott, Rhys/Reese

Yup! We’re still a few years away from babies, but we decided on Robert Walter a long, long time ago. Though the possibility of a girl apparently hasn’t even entered our minds.

@Brittanyg20:  haha, yeah we had this issue too. Thomas Rhys is a family name and no weird things pop up but my other guy name was Bradley Arthur and apparently Bradley James is the actor who plays King Arthur on BBC merlin, and he kind of makes me swoon. Dh was having none of that, all these of pictures of him in armor pop up…. Mmm.

We have names, backup names AND Hebrew names picked out! (Yeah, we’re a little nuts)

In an ideal world, where we have one girl and one boy:
Kyra Alyson and Hayden Evan

If we get two girls:
Kyra Lindsay and Alyson Jessica

If we get two boys:
Hayden Evan and Jonathan Zachary

Now, if we somehow end up with three of all one gender, we’ll figure it out then…

@Brittanyg20:  We picked names on our honeymoon 🙂 Our Sophie Virginia is sleeping upstairs right now. We chose Michael Hudson if we ever have a boy and if our next is a girl she will be Lila Jane.

Before we were even engaged… in fact we hadn’t even been going out three months! Lol. Charlotte Rose for a girl, Sebastian James for a boy. 

My nephew was born five months later. His name is Charlie and my sister-in-law said he was going to be Charlotte if he was a girl… we dodged a bullet!

@Sawyer13:  Eek, our name is on your lists, sort of! Our girl name is Eliot Evangeline. I’m super-nervous that Eliot/Elliott is going to get too popular in the next 3-4 years before we start TTC. FX no one famous uses it for their baby!

Girls name definitely are so much easier. For boys we’ve talked about Sam, Seb, and Clark, but I’m not wild about any of them. I always tell Fiance that every boy name sounds either too fratty, too girly, too trendy, or too nerdy, lol. I’m obsessed with the name George, but I think it’s out now that it’s the little prince’s name, haha.

We have our boys name picked out, but I’m kinda (completely irrationally) annoyed because DH’s sister just had a baby and ‘our’ boy’s first name is now her son’s middle name.  But whatever. That won’t change our minds 🙂

We can’t agree on girls names, though

@howsweetitis:  I’m not usually a fan of super popular names, but Elliott has been around for a while, so I think it will be fine.  Elliott Smith was a favorite musician of mine growing up.

When I was little, the first time I saw Marcia written, I thought it was pronounced mar-see-ah (like Garcia) and that it was the most beautiful name.  Then I found out it was mar-sha.  If I could figure out a way to spell that name, I’d probably have picked it.  Marceah?  Marciah? Yeah, IDK.
