so Miss Pudding’s post here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/11/12/a-rose-by-any-other-name-3/
got me thinking – what will your future children’s names be?
In all honesty I only have my future daughter’s name as an absolute. I have a few ideas for a son’s name but comprimised with my husband that he can choose our son’s name as long as I get my way with our daughter’s first name. 🙂
My great Aunt Kay’s real name (she was Polish) is Casimira. When I found this out (after she passed) I fell in LOVE with this name and vowed to use it for our first daughter’s name. We have comprimised and I will be using his mother’s first name as her middle name (his mom passed away when he was 12)…
Casimira Suzanne will be her name.
I also, though, love the names Lillian and Olivia and absolutely must use “Emma” for our second daughter (if there is one) as that is a longtime family name on my mom’s side of the family.

I have a few faves, ironically similar to yours! I love Emma and Olivia – Fiance wasn’t sold on the Emma, but I also like Ella, I have to run that by him someday, lol =)
I don’t have as many boy names picked out, but I LOVE the name Jake…I know it’s the nickname for Jacob, but I just really like Jake.

We liked Olivia, too–3 years ago when it wasn’t popular. Now we’ve decided on Isabella for a first name, Ella for short. As far as boys’ names go, well, he wants to name him after his middle name (Dh is named after his father’s middle name) which is James. Kinda snoozy to me but I just don’t like boys’ names as much as girls’ names! I have a super common first name and I don’t like that everyone’s like, “oh I know an Emily, toO!!!!”

If we have a boy: John William _________
My Dad’s first name and his dad’s middle name.
If we have a girl: Evelyn (evie) Elizabeth ________
My Grandmother’s First name (was very close with her) and FI’s mom’s name.
I figure since the kid gets to have my FI’s last name that I’m picking the first and middle names.

I love the name Kitana for a girl. (I totally got that from playing Mortal Kombat with my brother years and years ago LOL!) I would love to spell it Katana, because my grandma’s name was Katherine – Kat for short – and would love to incorporate that. But Katana spelled that way is a sword, sooooooooo not sure haha.
For a boy, I love Holden.

Rebekah.. and you thought that was MY name.. hahaha.
Nope.. I love that name and the way it is spelt. My Fiance and I have been to Nicaragua on missions trips and he had a little fan club. 🙂 awww… a group of little girls that he would throw in the air and spin around with. One of them was named Rebecca. . she was his favorite… sooo cute and shy. He is the one that mentioned this name for future children… awww 🙂
I like Lenora as another girls name. my great grandmother..
And Rylie for a boy (means Valiant) but our friends (who didn’t know this) had a girl and named her Rylie,,, so can’t use that one. .

I know I’m not marry yet or even engaged for that matter but BF and I have agreed on some names…
Coming from big families we hope to have a big family as well. And me coming from a broken family that has experienced fertility issues resulting in the death of one of my little brothers (11 years ago yesterday) I have thought long and hard about my childrens names for a while. I plan on using my mom’s maiden name and my middle name for my first daughter and my late brothers name as my son’s middle name. BF lost an uncle years ago and we plan on using his name as well. So all of our children will be able to have a name sake to remember and to carry on.

We already have our names picked out for any kids we may be blessed with.
boy #1 – named after daddy of course
boy #2 – Robert Francis (after both of our fathers)
girl #1 – Madyson Ashley (we like Madyson…Ashley is after his sister)
girl #2 – Taylor Crystal (we like Taylor….Crystal is after my sister)
Let me mention that we are only going for 2 kids but wanted to have 4 names in case we end up with 2 of the same sex =)

I’m bad with names lol. First we were thinking Jackson Alexander and Genevieve Aida (adia after his grandmother), but Jackson is moving up the ranks in popularity and I just feel Genevieve is too long. I really really like Clara, Lola, Eva. Simple names but not overly popular. I try to suggest new girl names, but hubby seems pretty insistant on Genevieve lol Boy names, I really like Parker, but hubby said no. He gave me a “big maybe” for Warren, but my mom said he’ll end up being a geek with that name. (which is one of the reasons why nobody will know the names we pick out until after baby is born and named lol) I tend to like boys names that are like last names though. Not sure why.

I’m pleasantly surprised by your name choices as being more sentimental and honoring family members than going with the more trendy ones. I recently joined my HS site on Facebook and you can tell the popular names of the times just by scrolling through!
It also helps if you don’t use an oddball spelling. Your future kids will thank you for it!

I don’t plan to have kids for at least 5 years so I don’t really know. I have thought about it but the names that I like are too popular now (Olivia, Sophia, etc). I want to name my kids something that is not so unique they get made fun of… but not so popular that there is 2 others in each of their classes.

@honeybun- I love the name Holden for a boy….reminds me of the I Love Lucy episode where she visits the Brown Derby and Bill Holden sits behind her and she knocks a platter full of pie into his face and then kisses him when he fibs to Ricky about how he knows her! I know that was a lot of detail about Lucy but hey look at my avatar.

@smyley – i agree with the oddball spellings – but of course that’s hard if the name you want is already “non-trendy”…and a family name from another country.
again – i LOVE the name I picked out but I know she’ll never find anythiing made with her name already on it..course that’s the “curse” I’ve had with my own name for 30 years… 😛

@junebride- things with your name already on them are overrated 🙂
