My husband and I would suggest names we liked. Whenever one of us suggested a name we both liked, it went on a list. For some reason I am way more picky with boy names than girl names. I like a lot of girl names, but hardly any boy names. So I rejected all but 3 names my husband suggested. I could only think of one boy name I liked: Ethan. From the list of 4 names we both liked, my husband said he wanted to go with Ethan, and have his middle name be James so he can call him E.J. So that's how our son came to be Ethan James. The funny thing is that my husband never calls our son E.J lol
Quoting KylersMom8-16-7:I had the worst time picking all my boys names. The first I just thought of one day, my second was in a name book but I changed the spelling, and my third we got stuck between two names and finally picked it weeks after our gender ultrasound. I'm not sure what I'll do if this baby is a boy, I can't find anything I like.
my daughter is a name that i loved since i was a kid. my favorite brat doll was jade so i named her jaiden my son is a jr and his middle name isaac was chosen because i thought it was a beautiful name for a handsome boy ^_^
With our boy name, we chose pretty easily. I saw it on a "Baby names" app, we changed the spelling and picked a middle name. Rilen Xavier. We will call him Rex as a nickname, because daddy wants too and he will be our little dino man.
For the girl, we fought for like 2 months over names. One night, we went to Barnes N' Noble, scrolled through a baby book and chose Kendelynn because daddy wanted a name very similar to mine. I agreed because it had Lynn in it (my middle name and my mothers). The middle name came later, it's my nanas middle name. She's one of the most important women in my life. So Kendelynn Louise.
We find out what our baby is on August 14, can't wait for that!
Isaac Robert Alekzander - I've always liked the name Isaac, my brother (RIP) was Robert, and I love the way Alekzander sounds
Liam Matthew Quyen - Dh chose Liam, Dh's name is Matthew, and we like the name Quyen
Eban Oliver Rhys - Dh chose Eban, I think the name Oliver is adorable and Rhys is cute too
