We may have 2… We’ll see how the first time goes!! But have said probably we’ll stick with just one.
I love finley, george, or Lawrence for a boy (tho finley is getting really popular in the UK right now, which makes me like it less)
for girls I like so many; abigale, felice, Harriet, aubrey, Lucy to name a few…

We’ll probably have 3-4, but we’re not TTC yet. I like girls names that end in -ana, -ella, etc… And for boy names, we’re not sure ๐Ÿ™‚ I like Biblical boy names, but I don’t want them to be too common or too weird – hard to find that middle ground with Bible names ๐Ÿ™‚

@misskoala:  I love the name Urijah! I know a guy named that, is that an ethnic name just out of curiousity?

We want just one or two…won’t make a decision on that till we have one and see how it goes.

No real serious name discussions, I know my SIL and her husband had their future kid’s names picked ot before the wedding even happened, although from what I’ve seen on the boards I guess it’s not that uncommon. But I just see it happen wayyy too often where a couple falls in love with a name, someone else they know has a kid first and uses it, and they’re furious and upset. We’re avoiding that whole drama by not choosing a name till I’m actually pregnant. Even then, we might narrow it down to two or three and decde which one suits our baby the best once we see him/her. That’s what my parents did with me and I like the idea of it.

That being said, for girl names I really like Keira, Allison, Kaylie, Rachel, Amelia (Mia). For a boy I like Benjamin (Ben), Zachary (Zach), Ethan, Evan, Ryan, Landon, Trevor, and Declan.

Darling Husband likes Luke and Leia. Yeah…he’s taking it very seriously so far.

@rbuchanan09:  My nephew is called Blaise (FIL’s middle name).  It isn’t a name I see often!

I want 1 but Darling Husband wants 2, so we will probably have 2.

Girls:  Mary Elizabeth (Elle or Ellie), Josephine (Josie) Ann

Boys:  Thomas, Malcolm (Mack), Patrick, Henry (Hank)

They are mostly all family names and we obviously like knick-names ๐Ÿ™‚
