I would love to name my kids Alastair (boy) or Adelaide (girl). Sadly, both have been vetoed. Hope these names end up on someone else’s list!

@somethingaquamarine:  Adelaide is a place here so that got vetoed. Alistair is my FBILs name so i veteod it. I used to LOVE the name Lauren (my middle name) Ally for a girl, when I told Fiance he said it was perfect, then I realised that FFILs nickname for Alistair is Ali I said no 🙁

@Pokemon:  Funny how those names came up in your conversations too! I love the name Lauren – so classy!

How did you come up with Ally? I’ve only heard it as a nickname (short for Allison). It’s spelled differently from Ali, so maybe you could still use it! Or maybe Lauren Ellie, Lauren Ella, or Lauren Isla?

@peachacid: I LOVE Welsh names! My dad is Welsh so of course that helps 🙂

Ive always loved Owen, but that’s out for me as FI’s brother’s middle name is Owen, and he’s a tool.

I also love Bronwyn. I actually work with one at the moment!

If we have a boy, we will 99.99% for sure name him Xavier and call him “X” for short. I also like the name Julian but it sounds funny with our last name.

If we have a girl… she might go without a name for a long time because we can’t decide on one! Also, DH is scared to have girls so he doesn’t want to think about it. =P

If we have a boy, I really really extremely want to name him Thomas Petty or Thomas Reeves. First name not so unusual, but I don’t think either middle name is popular. Both are grandfathers’ names, so they’re very special to me. I’d settle for just Thomas but Fiance is pushing back on even that. 

Fiance is a III, so for a while there was debate about making baby a IV. But Fiance doesn’t even go by his name because it’s so old fashioned. I won’t say it, but it’s similarly outdated to, oh, say, Eugene Clarence. In the end I said it was up to him because it’s his family name and I know those are very important to some people. 

Names that I like are:

Boy:
Alexei (now eliminated cause of an ex named Alex)
Lucien
Artemis (yes, for a boy)
Lachlan

Girl:
Ryanne (pronounced Ryan) Keiki
Tesla Jade (I am in love love love with this one)
Cadence Lea (pronounced Leah)
Evalin

And. The ONLY name we’ve been able to agree on, boy or girl… Solstice Raine.

Love some of these names! 

The name DH and I have decided on for #2 whether it’s a boy or girl, is Reese Santana. The first name isn’t so unusual but I have never met anyone in real life with the name (first or middle) Santana. DH likes it a lot more than I do, but it’s growing on me. Our last name is Hispanic sounding so we wanted a middle name that would make the whole thing flow.
