I love the name Delaney and it sounds soooo cute with our last name, but we are an international/bilingual couple and live in a Spanish speaking country. Our one agreed upon criteria for names is that they will need to be pronounced the same or VERY similarly in both languages, which limits us a lot! But it’s very important to us that our kid feels bicultural and not tied more to one place than another. Also, so that they don’t have two different names, one with my parents and one with his parents…

I have always loved my dissertation advisor’s first name, long before I met her, but things were such a nightmare at the end that it’s off the table for good.

I’ve always loved the name Kate, but I now work with one who is complete bitch, so I don’t feel the same attachment as I used to.

My Fi and I had always loved Oliver but my SIL named her little one Oliver and we have been quietly gutted ever since!

I love the name Max for a boy, but my future SIL had a traumatically abusive relationship with a Max so that name is out in consideration of her.

I also love Harrison, but don’t love the inevitable nickname Harry.

I have loved the name Sophia for years and years, but it has become so popular and has lost its shine for me. But I’m now considering my future MIL’s late mother’s name, which is not very popular right now and is growing on me!
