ISO baby names
 
My husband and I are having trouble coming up with baby names. We don't seem to have one we can agree on and the names we do agree on are just okay, nothing special. We would like something original but not too out there. Here are the names we've come up with so far.

Boys
Gray
Rowan
Skye
Liam
Theron

Girls
Avery
Marisol
Aria
Aurelia
Cheyanne (IMO, yuck)

I'd appreciate any ideas you all have. We still have over 2 months but we are getting short on ideas. Thanks all!

My neighbor's little boy's name is Liam, and he's so adorable (age 7). Their little girl's name is Ryan, which I know most people associate with boys, but it works. She's adorable too (age 9).
I like strong, old fashioned names, that, hopefully are not too trendy. Good luck. This can be hard work!

It would be easier to suggest if I knew more about the LAST name the first would be going with... maybe you could PM me or give us some idea about the last name...

Like, maybe it's a three-syllable Spanish-sounding name that starts with R (or something).

I'm certainly not up on the current "trendy" names or what is TOO common right now...but I like the name Riley for a girl or a boy and the name Zoe for a girl. Good luck!

I had a name all picked out for my daughter...then completely changed my mind when I saw her! I chose a name that wasn't even on my list of choices...I've never regretted my choice, and my daughter likes her name, too! :smile:

Gilbert. That will be his or her last name. I wish I could give the baby a different last name...:rolleyes:

Of the names you listed, I like Rowan and Avery the best. I tend to go towards more traditional names, too. For boys, I really liked the names Brian and Alexander (and call him Alex) but DH didn't like either for some reason :rolleyes: . In the last two months there have been three Isabella/Isabelles born on our street. My mom's a nursery school teacher and she has 3 each of Grace and Olivia this year, too. Nice names but a little too used at this point for my taste!

Austin for a boy. that's my son's middle name. wwe named him william for don's brother who died several years prior.

Desiree for a girl. that's my name but i can share !!

Being a school teacher I had a really hard time picking names cause I knew so many kids and some of them put me off the name!! When I was pregnant with my youngest I loved the name Liam but DH said it reminded him of Liam Gallagher from Oasis! Now I'm glad we didn't have a boy and use it cause we have about 4 Liams at school and they are all awful!!!
I like traditonal names spelt correctly!! You have no idea how hard it is for children with unusual spellings cause no one ever spells their name right and (I know this is petty) they can never but personalised things at shops- my older daughter is Jessica which they have writing pads, pens, mugs you name it with her name on it but Erin her little sister is much harder to find and boy does she get upset!
I think no matter what you name the baby everyone gets used to it eventually no matter what they said or thought in the start.

Hmm...maybe we won't go with Liam then.:lol:
I understand what you mean about certain names putting you off. I used to like the name Paige but then we met this little girl who came off quite creepy to me and now I can't help but think of her when I hear the name.

As of now, for me anyway (not sure about DH), Gray and Avery are my #1s.

When we picked out our son's name, Aidan, we liked it because it wasn't a name we heard of often. Now it seems like everyone is naming their kid Aidan. He's going to be one of those kids who has three Aidans in his class at school.:sad:
