I really really love Theo. It’s a sweet name for a boy and I can definitely imagine an adult named Theo as well (that’s my test, try to imagine them as adults).

I like Isla and Clara separately but not together. I don’t like the double ah sound, either. My future child’s last name will end in an ah sound and there are some names ending in the ah that just sound weird with it.

Older sounding names that I love include:

Girls:

Eleanor

Celeste

Josephine

Evelyn

Amelia

Georgiana

Boys:

Eli or Elijah

Nathaniel

Charles

George

Alfred

Victor

Alistair

Frederick

 ETA: Oh and I forgot Francesca! I can never use it because its DH’s cousin’s name.

@peonia:  I LOVE French names. My favorite is Elodie. I wish my Darling Husband would go for a french name!

AH, I love names too, even though we won’t be TTC for several more years!

 

Girls:

Kathryn

Amelie

Adelaide

Sofia

Selah

Boys:

Leo

Colin

Henry

James (DH’s name)

Lucian (My mother hates this one; too close to ‘Luficer’ I suppose.) Nickname would be Luc.

we’re ttc in a few months so I like to think about names too πŸ™‚ I’ve actually been thinking about Theodore as well–my dh had an uncle named that so it’d be a great family name to use. the thing is though, I really like both Theo and Teddy as nicknames, but I kind of hate Ted and I don’t know if that nickname could really be avoided with it! we have a few other boy names that we’ve talked about that are higher up on the list–we’ve picked Judah as our top name and I think Seth was high up on our list too. for girls, our top choice is Rosalie. we also talked about Noralee/Norah-Lee (spelling to be determined! I want to use Lee because it was a family name) but then family friends named their baby Nora and I think it’s out for us now πŸ™ we’ll see though!

@AstoriaK:  

@Ms.Pink:  

aw i’m glad you like french names! there’s a lot of lovely ones to choose from, but my current favourite for a girl is Elise. for a boy, Louis (the s is silent of course!). I also love Amelie but i’m sure i would get a ton of “ooh from the movie??” comments haha.

@Ms.Pink:  oooh I love Magnolia Grey too! And also Isla and Clara (or Claire), I forgot to mention that πŸ™‚ We have very similar taste in names!

I’m also not sure if I want to give up Noralee yet–there’s a song (Wilco’s “Hesitating Beauty”) that dh and I love that uses that name and has the sweetest lyrics, like “by the stars and clouds above/we can spend our lives in love/you quit your hesitating, Noralee” and it would be so nice to have a special lullaby just for her πŸ™‚ (and if we had a boy named Judah, we’d sing him “hey jude” so they’d each have a custom song!) But Rosalie/Rosalee actually has more family significance so it might have won out in that fight anyway even if our friends hadn’t used it. But, when I found out they named their baby Nora my heart really did drop…

I also love Adelaide, or Ada, but dh vetoed it

@AstoriaK:  Elodie is SO pretty! but our surname will begin with D so it would be a bit too “hard” sounding with the double D sound i think. damn.

My Fiance loves American History and would love to name a baby Theodore, but when I hear Theo I only think of this guy
