We haven’t picked them out, but we do talk about names sometimes.  Usually it comes up when I get struck with a name idea, and I ask him if he’d ever consider it for one of our future kids, to which he’ll either reply, “Yeah, sure,” or, “What the hell kind of name is that?”  πŸ˜›

ETA: Though, personally, I am pretty settled on our first girl’s name.  πŸ™‚

@jude7186: We do this too, kind of randomly. We started listing them down one day and we’ve probably done this for too long now that it’s become kind of a game – ie, we slip silly names like “Jack Daniels” on the list!

Haha, yes!

Fiance and I really want to have a girl in the way future. My Fiance has three brothers and I have two sisters (and one baby brother who is 7 months old!) I wan’t both, but honestly I don’t care what we have.

I’ll share the first and middle name we’ve “decided” on that we are just crazy about…Anastasia Eve.

@craftybridelovesnerdygroom: I love that name! Anastasia is one of my favorites but Fiance hates it… maybe I can convince him for a middle name πŸ˜‰

 

@jude7186: We discuss it too. When I got cats (that will of course be his when we get married) and tried to name them, we realized how difficult naming is going to be for us, haha. I hate his favorite boy name and refuse to name a child that, and he’s not a fan of the girl name I have my heart set on, so we always throw the names around jokingly. When it comes to actually deciding… no idea what will happen, lol!

@galloway111: Oh yes, it would be a beautiful middle name! πŸ™‚ It is a name that isn’t well-liked by everyone, but it certainly is unique!

You are definitely NOT crazy. My Fiance and I have picked out names for boys and girls. Sebastian James (his confirmation name was Sebastian and James is my fathers name) and the girl is Madeline Sophia. If I have another boy or girl I’m screwed cause it took me FOREVER to come up with the girls name. Though I do LOVE the name Preston for a boy.

@ashleyyyg: FI and I love the name James!

We also love the name Evan (something like James Evan or Evan James)

Hy husband told me on one of our first dates, when we first started having more in-depth conversations about what we wanted in life, that he had a name for his daughter, first and middle.  And that is the one that we’ll use if get pregnant with a girl!  So not weird at all:)
