We’re having a girl in March and we’re naming her Mya. Hubby and I got married in the Riviera Maya. We liked the spelling M-Y-A better though.

Cory_loves_this_girl:  My cousin (last name Collins) named her baby Miles- I think that sounds awesome. If it doesn’t sound good to you, it doesn’t sound good…..but are you SURE it doesn’t sound good?? 

I love Paige by the way and it is on my list if our next baby is a girl!

MrsAKSkier:  I don’t know, maybe if I say it enough I’ll get used to it and it won’t sound bad! Haha

Think of Miles Sanders. That’s similar to how it will sound.

My husbands name is Sami, mine is Ashley. My husband had the goofy idea of naming our 2 future children names starting with an M and an I. So the first initial of our first names will spell out Sami, I told you….. goofy. Anyways, I went with it, what the heck, makes for an interesting story one day. 

We just had our first in June, we named her Mira (pronounced MEER-ah), my hubby heard it somewhere and fell in love with it, I loved it too, and so that’s what we named her. 

The next baby should be interesting. There’s not too many I names, that I love anyways.

I’m from Sweden where we celebrate name days – each day of the year you celebrate one or two names. In my family it has always been treated like a mini birthday, and since my Canadian husband also has a name that’s in the calendar we felt like any future child of ours should have a name day as well. Little sad if mum and dad can have one mini birthday each and kiddo can’t… We also decided to go with names that weren’t family related since we would have ended up with so many names if we wanted to please everyone. We were team green and had names selected for both a girl and a boy but ended up with a little Tor Alexander. Tor is the Swedish spelling of Thor, The Good of Thunder – it comes with a name day, isn’t super common and feels like a good, strong, name. Besides, I grew up actually believing Tor existed, so that will be a fun thing to tell him when he’s older! Alexander is from a good friend of ours named Alexandra. Also has a name day and we liked how it flowed with Tor.

I write books online, so in one of my books there is a two year old character. And at first the name I gave him didn’t mean much but as I continued to write the story, I fell in love with it. And that’s how I decided that if I have a boy that’s what I am gonna name him.

MrsAKSkier:  The girl could be Kilometer!

Obviously I’m totally joking, I think Miles is a fantastic name, I was just assumed by the thought of you guys hiking and using a distance measurement as your inspiration.

Our daughter’s name is my mothers maiden name. It would have have been our son’s name had she been a boy. Her middle name is her grandmother’s middle name. She is definitely the only one out there with her name, but they are both pronounceavle and understandable.

redbutterflybee:  We have twin boys Noah and Samuel

Noah the Hebrew meaning of the name is comfort; long-lived; repose. In the Bible, Noah built the ark, allowing his family and a male/female pair of every species of animal to survive the Flood.<br />

Samuel the Hebrew the meaning of the name is name of God; asked of God; heard by God. Samuel was the prophet who anointed Saul and David as kings of Israel in the Old Testament.

redbutterflybee:  We don’t have kids yet. But, our girl name is after his gramma and our boy name is picked just because we like it, not after anyone.

No kids yet but planning on TTCing in May. 🙂 Boy is easy Kenneth William. Both are family names. Kenneth is both my mom’s and MIL’s father’s name. William is Darling Husband and FIL’s middle name. We also like Alexander Michael. Michael  is my fathers first name. Girls ia a little harder, Darling Husband likes Skylar and I like Willow. SIL just took our idea for a middle name Elizabeth so thats outs cause its DH’s moms middle name. And SIL would have a shit fit if we gave or little girl the same middle name. Most likely a family name for a middle name for a girl. Ruth or Joyce 🙂

I’m Polish, so I wanted our Dear Daughter to have a Polish name, but one that could be easily pronouncable in english. Our top three picks were Daria, Kinga, and Klara. When she was born, we decided she was a Klara.
