Just found out we're pregnant! I love baby names and would love to get some new ideas as DH will not discuss names until he knows the sex of the baby. We're roughly only 3.5 weeks so I have plenty of time, but DH is extremely picky so I need a nice long list to run by him
Some things to consider: We would love names that are not prone to nn's as I hate them (I know you can't always keep people from nick naming a child, however we haven't had any problems with DS and he's 15 months old). I prefer biblical, but anything vintage and not popular is also a plus. I also want it to sound good with DS (Tobias Richard) Our last name is a short 4 letter 1 syllable nature-y last name.
For a girl: Middle name will definitely be Margaret. It is not an option for a first name, and I do not want to use any variation of the name.
My ideas for a girl are:
Ramona Margaret (love the meaning)
Gertrude (I just love the way it sounds with Tobias) However, I'm almost certain DH will veto it.
Bernadette Catherine/Margaret (I feel Catherine has better flow than Margaret, however DH is set on the middle name being Margaret, does Bernadette Margaret flow okay?)
Magnolia Margaret (Love the double MA sound, but fear that Magnolia might come off as too nature-y with our last name?)
Lorraine Reagan (This has been my absolute favorite name for years, however I do not like the way Lorraine Margaret flows)
For a boy: Looking for names that do not start with "T" or "J". Possible middle name ideas as of now are Frank/Franklin (nod to DH), Melvin/Dennis (nod to my dad) however DS does not have a family middle name so I'm not adamant about those 3 names.
My number 1 pick for a boy is Ezra Sherwood, however I feel Ezra is rising in popularity? I really want to use Sherwood as a first name, however I know many people will hate it so I'm hoping to save it and find the perfect name to use it with. Sherwood is my favorite guilty pleasure name right now.
Solomon Dean (DH already vetoed this name too )
Samson (though I'm not finding a good mn I like with it)
Atticus Frank/Melvin (Maybe too stuffy with our DS's name?)
Sorry it's long! Guess I'm kind of picky too lol. If you have any suggestions on the names I like and if you could give me some new suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!
