Fiance loves Roy Thompson for a boy… I like Thompson but I HATE the name Roy! It’s hard for me to say (I have a speech impairment that I still have a little trouble with some sounds). I want to name a little boy Diggs, after my dad. Thompson and Roy are both after his grandfathers… ughh.


We like the names Anna, Claire, Maya, and a few others for a girl.

I am Jordan Jamie. My mom gave me not one, but two unisex names in the 80’s when every other girl was Stephanie, Courtney, etc. My parent’s reasoning behind it is that they wanted employers to be curious as to if I were a male or a female when I applied for careers. My mom experienced a sexist workplace and didn’t want me to have to struggle as well. It worked! The only negative was accidentally being put in the boys’ PE class in 6th grade. So I like James for a girls middle name!

For Fiance and I, we agree on a girls name

Kenzie Brooke. or Kinslie Brooke

either one.

For a boy…this is a little harder.

He loves Jaxon, but it’s SO common now. I really like

Madden Colt [for our love for football..plus our last name is Maska and I think Madden Maska sounds super cute]

Hudson Colt

We’ve had our share of arguments over this – DH wants to name a son after his father whose name is John.  I have 2 major issues with this – first, I’m Jewish and it’s a huge taboo to name a baby after someone who is still living (which Father-In-Law is) and secondly (and more importantly if you ask me) I CANNOT STAND my father-in-law (for many well founded reasons) Also, I’m just not a fan of the name John.

We haven’t talked about it since right after we got engaged, and I since then I’ve been able to be more open with DH about how I feel about his dad, so I’m hoping that when the time comes this might not be an issue anymore.

One thing I can say for certain though, I will *NEVER* agree to naming any son of mine John.


Ranting aside, I do think about this a lot and am frequently “collecting” name possibilities.  Here are some of my favorites:


Judah, Ezra, Luke


Nora, Myriam (Miri), Claire

I know if I have a daughter I want her middle name to be Esther.  It was my Grandmother’s middle name (who I never knew because she passed away before I was born).

I always tell DH he better hope we only have boys because we agree on ideas for those names: Brennan, Cole, Henry, Liam, Malcolm, Miles, and Warren.

All the girls names I love, he totally hates. He says he just doesn’t like the way they sound…hoping I can change his mind on some of them: Anya, Aubree, Evangeline (my absolute favourite), Lydia, and Paige. He is iffy on Madeleine but willing to consider it. His favourite is Lily, but my brother has a speech impediment that makes saying this name difficult and we wouldn’t want him to struggle with it. Who knows what we’ll do if it’s a girl…ha ha ha

Your boy names are nice – love Tobias!

Ettisyn barely looks like a word, let alone something you’d name a person. Gentry is a neat family name but might be confusing as a girl/woman’s first name. 

DH’s mom’s family is really close and I love them. Their last name is London, and I’d like to use that as a middle name. DH doesn’t love it, but he does like the idea of a family name. Sterling is  an heirloom name on my side – I hope we get to use it!

Yep, we do 🙂 I was 100% set on naming my first daughter Charlotte. It is becoming more popular now, but even before it was popular……my great grandmother is CHarlotte, I love family names, and I love the nickname Charley. 


He adamantly says no, absolutely not, never, not gonna happen, worst name ever lol.


I’ve almost let it go 😛
