Pregnant with baby #1 and Darling Husband and I have settled on names. We are not going to find out the gender before birth, so we have to be prepared!
Boy: James David…but we are going to call him Jimmy
James is an old family name on DH’s side, and David is my Father-In-Law
Girl: Ruby Ann
Ruby is a name that Darling Husband and I fell in love with, and Ann is his late Mothers middle name AND the first name of his Godmother (who has been a mother figure to him since his Mom got sick with cancer when he was 11)
Before you ask, we didn’t consider using names from my side of the family because I am estranged from my family.

I really like them both, honestly. I like classic, normal names and those both fit the bill. James was on our boy name list as well- it’s a good name!

This may be the first “do you like this name?” post where I can honestly say YES! Love them!

I adore these names 🙂 Is it terrible that now I’m really hoping you have boy/girl twins because oh my goodness, little Jimmy and Ruby would be so cute together. Mom-swoon.

Normally I cringe when I read baby names….but not this time(not that my opinion matters much)! As a PP said the classic names are the best for me. Not into these newage hip names like Apple, Table and extra letters to spell names.

I, too, usually cringe when I read baby name suggestions. Completely made up names and odd spellings (especially when a name already has a perfectly good, established spelling) drive me batty.
I can honestly say I love, love, LOVE your name choices. And I bet your future child will love their name, too.

I love these names! Ruby is very unique and pretty, and it pairs well with Ann (also my middle name).

snowflake8 : I like Jimmy and Ruby! They aren’t my favorite names but they are nice names, I got nothing negative to say about either of them.
