Fun!  It’s kind of ironic… my husband hopes we have all boys, but we’ve only come up with girl names!  At the top of our list right now is either Summer Leigh or April Leigh.  My husband is fond of “names that are things,” and those are two I’ve always liked.  lol.  Our first daughter’s middle name will for sure be Leigh and our first son’s middle name will be Keith, after our own middle names.

wow, i havent met a person named Fiona in years, its different without being weird or popular and  Michelle is my bff name so it has very good vibes for me and Max (or Maxwell) i love for a boys name

i think picking middle names that mean something (family, friend, someone that affected you positively) is great

edit: Fiona is a skank??? never seen Shamless so i dont have that assocation at all

I really like Alice for a girl.  Fiance isn’t into it yet.  I’ll convince him.  ๐Ÿ˜›

Boys names….I don’t know.  I’d like it to start with a J, but I just don’t like anything we’re come up with so far.  This isn’t to say that I don’t think about it far too often for a person who isn’t even TTC yet, haha.

Fantasy baby name: Gilda Vivienne.

Name we finally BOTH agreed on (not Kerri anymore because Darling Husband wanted something “different” to match our daughter’s somewhat different name):

Gwendolyn (for my grandmother).

We’ll be calling her Gwen for short. I love the name, it’s different but very classic, and will work at any age. She could be a doctor or a rock star either way!

cool thread! id like to participate (even though im pregnant at the moment so these names are for the kid thats currently in progress!)

Girl: Eleanor Lee    –  Eleanor because several years ago I read a book and the character was called Eleanor and the name has stuck with me since, my Fiance decided on Eleanor however because its a model of his favourite car so therefore if we have a girl she be named after both a book and a car! and we’re having the middle name Lee, because that is both my mother’s middle name as well as my own so i want to continue that small tradition ๐Ÿ™‚


Boy: Lucas Anthony    –  Lucas – dont really have a reason why its Lucas, I’ve just always liked the name and its stuck me with me also! Fiance wants the name Lucas for a boy purely for the reason of star wars so he can say “Luke I am your father”… boys! lol. Oh and anthony because thats both my FI’s middle name and his fathers – keeping the family middle name theme going!

@UpstateCait:  Thanks! I had sort of tucked it away in my not going to happen baby names list, because Darling Husband has been such a grump about the name, I never thought he’d go for it. So when he suggested we go for something a bit more different (Kerri was literally the only name we agreed on), I suggested Gwendolyn and he was immediately like “I love it!” My grandmother was a HUGELY important figure in my life and if my daughter grows up to be anything like her, I will be thrilled. She was an amazing woman.

My SO and I only have plans for furbabies unless we eventually get our own lives figured out.

We like older names… and he is a metalhead so we picked out Abigail for our first dog ๐Ÿ™‚ which we won’t get until we have a house with property (more than likely this is 5 years away as we have major plans before being able to settle).

Still haven’t figured out a middle name. I tend to make up a lot of nicknames for pets as well.

A cat name we’ve also thought of- Torple (Parks and Recreation reference)

We plan on having a lot of animals… but it’s so far off that we can only dream for now.

For a girl we have decided on Emmalynn Joy or Emma Lynn Joy. Emmalynn comes from the show army wives as one couples daughter. My husband is in the army and i love the show and we both fell in love with it.

For a boy we have decided on Adrian Christan. Both names are male characters in my favorite book series. Hubby wasn’t too set on it but I refuse to change it.

@Caitmarae my god daughters older sister’s name is Fiona and i dont associate it with orges or skanks. i do love both of your choices.
