Baby names..

My husband is a traditional kind of guy. He likes simple.
I like unique- not crazy, just unique.

He likes Juliana.
I like Aria, Noelle, & Maura. (Mar-a)

He likes Ethan.
I like Noah, Ezra, & Carter.

Which names do you like best?

  • Compromise! I would just combine them.. How about Juliana Noelle for a girl and Ethan Carter for a boy?

  • We have a friend who was in a horrible car accident last oct. woke from a coma a month later & is not recovering- so the name keeps getting brought up.. but I dont Juli as a nickname and I know thats what itll be. Juliana will not happen. Originally when we had our 1st son it was between Noah & Ethan & somehow he ended being a Logan.. I LOVED LOVED LOVED Ethan until I found out I was having a boy.. now its VERY VERY popular, as well as Noah & Id prefer to fray from those names..

  • I would combine them. Personally, I like traditional names better- at least most of the time- but your choices are also nice!

  • What about Jules for the nickname instead. May if you chose an abreviation you like, you can avoid her being called Julie. I do like Noelle too! For a boy, I like all the names minus Carter. Ezra sounds cute.

  • I tend towards more traditional names myself. My opinion, Noelle for a girl and any boy's name but Ezra.

  • I like Noelle from your list.
    From the boy list i think all of them are great except Ezra
    A compromise would be nice maybe Noah Ethan, Ethan Carter............

  • I did the same thing when I was pregnant with my son I wanted to name him Ethan until we found out he was a boy and then we changed it to Christian. Then when I got pregnant for the second time if the baby was boy we were going to name him Ethan and the baby turned out to be a she so we named her Ella. Now if we have a boy when we get pregnant again we are going to name him Gavin lol And a girl Katelynn and call her Kate :)
