What's in a Name?

So DH and I have been brainstorming baby names. It's not that easy as the name we choose may/will define him/her for the rest of their life. We don't want our child to get beat up in the playground because of the name we choose.

I have to write down the names we like so far otherwise we're going to forget it.





Our boy name list is coming up short at the moment. Mostly I've been coming up with the girl names because I'm convinced we are having a girl. DH of course thinks it's a boy. We will be happy of course with either as long as the baby is healthy.

We would love some suggestions for boy/girl names. If you have any, post them. :)

Question of the day: If you could re-name yourself, what name would you choose?

I love Audrey. Very elegant and classy...Hepburn-ish. :-) And, she wouldn't have the situation where there are five other little girls with the same name in her class.

Ohh I love questions like this. Let's see, for a girl, I like Emma, Ella, Lola, Lauren, Isabella... basically any name that ends in "A" is going to be one that I love. I also like Dylan and Charlee for a girl. For boys, I like Lucas, Jack, Charlie and Aiden. Okay, I just realized brookem and I have a lot of the same names. Hmm. I suspect great minds think alike!

I go by 2 names Belinda and Missy some people only know me as one or the other so that has been enough for me I have never thought of wanting another :)

My friend's sister just named her twins Chloe and Lucas. How cute is that! If I were to rename myself, I would go for something old fashioned or jolie-laide like Agnes or Rosemary or Constance. For boys-- I enjoy names that would definitely get them beat up on the playground: Federico (Rico for short - ha!), Pierre and Jan (that's pronounced YAN - ha!)
