My husband & I have been ttc for several months now and haven’t had any luck so far.. but I’m doing my best to stay positive & think about our future babies to come, fingers crossed!!
I’d love your opinions on our favorite names so far. It’s a great distraction from waiting for my BFP to finally show up. If you think any of these are too popular or ‘trendy’ right now, I’d love to hear that too!
Thanks (in advance) for humoring me bees!

I know 3 Camdens (all boys) born in the last year or so. Don’t know if that would matter to you. I love Hazel!

Holden and Everly. If I was having a girl I was going to name her Everly Rose, (and call her everrose as a nick name).

@eeniebeans: I’ve only heard Camden for boys also, but thought maybe it could crossover? Glad to hear someone else likes Hazel, my husband isn’t so sure!
@lauraashley09: No worries! I appreciate your opinion regardless! : ) Funny thing is, a couple of these names I’ve loved forever because they’re “older” names, mostly from several generations back. I know grandparent-aged people named Hazel, Ford, Holden & Harrison. I guess everything cycles back into popularity though…
Any other suggestions are also welcome.. I love hearing name ideas!

To me, almost all these names sound like boys names, except Everly (which honestly don’t sound like a name) and Olive (never met someone with that name before). Hazel is actually kind of cute and girly.
But, that’s just my incredibly biased opinion, so I would say go with whatever you want. All I will say is that I work in school administration, so I literally see about 500-600 names a year of students.
Just bare in mind if you choose an odd name or one with an odd spelling, your child (and you) will always have the lifelong struggle of trying to get people to spell it/say it correctly. Not saying that should detour you, but it’s just reality.

You know, I really like Ford, but I would sort of wonder if people would associate it with the vehicles, you know? Lile I seriously loved the name Colt…. but I dont know that future he would enjoy what others might constantly say about it. Also it doesnt fit in my guidelines I have chosen anyway 😛
the ones I chose were Everly and Jamison.

I live outside of Camden, NJ. Google it, then don’t name your kid Camden if you have even the slightest inkling that they might ever go within 200 miles of NJ, lol.
Best baby name advice I ever got: think of the nicknames. Harrison will be Harry, Jamison will be Jamie, Grayson will be Gray, etc. At least, those are the nicknames that people will assume. So I mean, just make sure you like the nicknames for the kid, too. And a lot of your girl names don’t have obvious nicknames. Not that it’s a huge deal, but people always try to shorten names, so Everly may become Ev or Evvy, or something like that. Just food for thought.

@bmo88: thanks for mentioning the odd spelling/pronunciation issue.. that is actually a huge pet peeve of mine & hadn’t really thought people might put any of my names in that category. Which do you feel might be confusing to pronouce?
Also you’re totally right! I do tend to like boyish sounding names for girls – I have the hardest time liking any names that are ultra-feminine. I don’t know why! haha
@allyfally: thank you! I adore Harrison but kinda worry he get called Harry… hmmm : )
@PixelMePretty: I think Everly Rose is beautiful together!
@jesssamesssa: @JerNCher: thanks! Loving all the Everly love : )

I just can’t comprehend how Harper is a popular name now. I was saddled with that name from 1985 to 2003 and was ecstatic when I moved on to college where people would call me by my first name instead of my middle name.

I work at a preschool and these are all popular names so it makes me think they’re trendy?
Either way, I love the name Emerson. We call her Emmy
