I know it’s naughty, especially as we’re not TTC and definitely not pregnant, but I already have ideas for names for our future children.
Has anyone else not pregnant or TTC picked out possible names for their possible children?
I have been thinking about Lillian Alice (known as Lily) for a girl (my grandma’s middle name and my FH’s mother’s name) and Alexander Israel or a boy (my FH’s and my father’s middle name and my late grandpa’s original name). Although I’ve been a little put off Alexander by our current First Minister.
Other possibilities I like are Margaret (for my late granny), John (my grandpa’s chosen name when he renounced “Israel Judah” as his name), Victoria (for my amazing great-aunt if she has passed by the time we have children) and William (for my other grandfather).
I guess I’m a little old-fashioned with names. I like the idea of naming children for family members while avoiding the names of living relatives (as in Judaism you’re not meant to name children for living relatives in case the angel of death gets confused and takes the wrong one).

Currently I’m just in love with the name Reagan. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I kinda have a silent deal that he’ll name the boys and I’ll name the girls since we both have names picked out already lol.

I always liked the name Sadie. My husband and I are Jewish, and we both have Sadie’s in our family’s, but he doesn’t love the name like I do, so it will remain a fantasy 🙁

Haha! We’ve talked about it briefly. I have a daughter from a previous relationship, so when we start TTC we are hoping for a healthy boy! But, if we have a girl, I’m secretly hoping we’ll be able to name her Lyra Grace or Lyra Hazel. He likes the name Addison, which I’m not overly fond of. For a boy, I’d like to name him Henry.

@Koala Bear Love the name Reagan too! And Kennedy Madison. But, I don’t want her having the nickname Kenny or Maddie yuck. I also like McKinsey. But, what if ppl call her Mickey. So, even though Kennedy Madison is my fave, I think Reagan fits better. Boy names= not a clue!
Still a few years out though!

@KatyElle: Ooh! I love Gilda Vivienne! What a fabulous name! Homage to 1930s/40s movies and stars?

I still love the name Parker… Darling Husband on the other hand doesn’t. He says everyone will call him “Porker”.
Great, turn down the one name I really like.

@SpecialSundae: Vivienne because it’s the name of a insanely cool great aunt. Gilda because I have always admired Gilda Radner for her humor and courage. She seemed like a great lady (Gene Wilder married her so you know she was awesome).

We both like Sydney. I also like Adelaide and Harper (but both are getting trendy). So if we got pregnant tomorrow a girl would probably be Sydney Harper.
He likes Tyler Paul and I haaaaaaate the name Tyler. According to him we need a good Chicago Bears linebacker name.

I told Fiance last night I was considering his proposal that we name our first son Wolfgang! It’s tradition in his family to give your son your name and your father’s but those both won’t fit because I’m squeezing in my late best friend’s (and woulda been godfather) name in! Fiance and I both have two middle names so…might do!
So we decided Wolfgang is actually a pretty respectable, cool name and hopefully we’ll have a boy first to look after his wee sisters. Can you imagine? “I wanna take Alice out on a date” “Yeah well good luck dealing with Wolfgang.”
So we have some time to decide whether it will be Wolfgang Luke Nicholas, Wolfgang William Nicholas, or Wolfgang Nicholas William!
First daughter is gonna be Alice Olivia. Not sure about what happens if we have more than one of each, but I’m in love with the name Aoife (never heard it before coming here) and the possibilities from there on out are endless.
