  • I did, wound up letting my husband name our son, and when he wanted to name him after himself (this was our second son, not our first who was named after his father) I told him that he would have to think of something other than another Junior. He came up with Matthew, who is his favorite bible author, and Gregory after my favorite tv character ( I love love LOVE House).

  • I really struggled...I had lists after lists of names. Our names for a girl were Edie Rose or Evie Rose. We kinda hoped we would have a girl as we were so sure of what we'd call her! But u/s said boy ..suddenly one of the names on our lists seemed to feel more we've stuck with it for most of the pregnancy! We've discussed it a few times since, but im now nearing 34 wks and baby is still called Oliver.

    You WILL find the perfect name....somtimes it just clicks and sticks!

  • im five months right now and at first my hubby and i had a hard time trying to think of a boys name because thats what we are having but after 5 months of thinking we came up with Sebastian...our previous child who is a girl was so fun and easy to pick a name for but for some reason it was hard for a boy...before looking at names look at the meaning of it and if u come accross something u love and u like the name with it then it will be easy

  • I had them picked out right away. I had a son and his name is Tyler...loved it the first time I heard it. If Tyler was a girl he would have been Baylee Nicole.

  • We had a hard time picking out a boy name. I loved the name Aiden Allister and my husband didn't. He loved the name Ezra and I didn't. So we finally found a name that we both liked, Brayden Thomas. Thankfully our first turned out to be a girl because now I hate the name Brayden Thomas. Our daughter's name is Scarlett Abigial and I've loved it since high school. My husband loves it too, so we had no problems in the girl name department. We already have our second child's names picked out even though we aren't TTC. Oliver Liam for a boy and Olivia Eindy for a girl. They're both family names from our deceased loved ones.
