I have had several misscarriages and we had chosen a couple girls names before we  lost the pregnancy and now I am pregnant again and we found out that it is a girl. Would it be weird or creepy to use one of the names that we had chosen with the previous misscarriages? I am not sure how I feel about it but the hubby really likes one of the previous names.

I don't think so. It's pretty much like having a boy then using your potential girl name for him for a future daughter IMO.


Quoting misanutz:


I have had 9 misscarriages over the last five years and because we never made it long enough to find out the sex, so I did not chose names. But these are name we would have used had it been a girl. Do think it would be weird to use them now?


Quoting Anonymous:

When did your miscarriages occur? Have you used the names for any of the lost babies?



I have lost two babies far enough along to tell the gender and I named them and would not use the names for another child. I also had name ideas for babies I lost much earlier and I'd have no problem using those.

I really wish it was easier to chose a girls name

I lost mine too early to tell gender, so all names were just suggestions. I fell in love with one for a girl and was in the process of convincing my husband it was "the" name when I miscarried.
When I got pregnant again, it felt too strange to even suggest that name, so I let it go with the miscarried baby. I knew that was that baby's name and couldn't be used for any future children of ours:

That is sort of how I am feeling about. I would love to use either names but I feel like it would almost take away from the memory of my misscarriages
