Haven't had one for aaaaaaages.
Share your favourites below, whether pregnant, not pregnant, vetoed by H or whatever!
Girl: Penny, Summer, Constance (vetoed by H) and a recent contender from nowhere - Iris, although H needs convincing of this still which is making me like it even more ;)
Boy: Max, Abe (vetoed by H), Dylan.
Middle name for a girl will be Ellen and for a boy, probably Andrew.

I love penny popcorn but my h said no :-( I actually wanted Penelope but he said double no!
Girls - cora, cara, annie, francesca, middle name will be eleanor
Boys - not sure!
23/02/2015 at 20:48
Girls name- loads . Isabella, Rebecca, Sophie/ Sophia, Lilly.
Boys not sure!!
23/02/2015 at 22:08
Girls - Alysia, Kaitlyn, Sapphire
Boys - I don't have any! I'd like Paul for a middle name as it's my H's dad's name plus my Dad's middle name but my H says no :(

Girls - still adore Clementine and a bit gutted I've never got to use it! Also like Saffron and Juno.
Boys - Apart from what I used I really like Dashiell and Sullivan :)

Oh popcorn we had Dylan as a real front runner for O! Our other boys names were Aaron, Alex and Thomas and girls we had Emily, Florence, Amy and I love Mea but really good friends of ours have a daughter called Mya so it ruled that out!
Do you have a feeling if your team pink or blue?

Holey I like Cora too but I doesn't go with our last name.
PS sapphire would be so beautiful next to A's name!
Alaina I like clementine too but I know better than to suggest it to my H :-/
MDD not really sure. Early on I felt really strongly that it was a girl and (I shouldn't have a preference I know) but I'd LOVE a girl. As times gone on I'm kind of thinking boy again. I reeeeally wish we'd found out!
24/02/2015 at 08:41
Girls - Edith/Edie, Elsie, Daisy, Rose, Isla, Molly
Boys - Tobias, Arthur, Edward
These are my favorites but H hasn't agreed to any yet :(
24/02/2015 at 08:55
Popcorn I really like Iris and Abe.
All of my suggestions so far have been vetoed by H so I think these boys are going to be nameless.
Here's the list:
Choosing two names is so hard!
24/02/2015 at 09:27
Girls - We only agree on Fransesca. Middle name will be Jean as both our Grans were Jean. I am not sure about the middle name as I have it and hate it. We both really like Stevie Rose for a girl but we would need to see her first.
Boys - Oh loves Noel. I fecking hate it!!!! We both quite like Ned. I also like surnames as first names like Cooper, Walker, Parker but H is yet to be convinced
24/02/2015 at 09:31
We're keeping our names under our hats, but contenders were:
Girls: Evelynn, Carolyn, Katrina
Boys: As we found out what we're having, we've only picked out one boys name to put in reserve, which we love!
24/02/2015 at 10:39
RKB - I love all those. Especially Carolyn, don't see it often anymore.
24/02/2015 at 11:56
Hubby really liked Carolyn, but that's my boss's name, and i felt a bit funny about naming my child after my boss...even though we wouldn't have technically as it H who originally suggested it! ;-)
24/02/2015 at 13:14
Does anyone else feel like their tastes changed from when you're TTC and a baby is hypothetical and when it becomes a real person that you are responsible for naming? Some of the names I have liked for a long time feel totally wrong now for this human being I'm growing! Some of the names we liked are:
Boys - Jensen, Cole, Deacon, Finley, Reeve, Jackson, Samson, Sawyer, Ethan
Girls - Erin, Seren, Sienna, Quinn, Freya, Lainie, Eden, Skye
24/02/2015 at 13:34
ST - I get that! Before we started a family, i always imagined i'd have a wee boy called Myles and a wee girl called Evelyn... neither name has been used.
I love the name Sawyer, It's the name i gave to my pet rabbit! I also really like Skye, but it doesn't really go with our surname too well :-(
24/02/2015 at 13:50
ST I agree, I never in a million years thought of the name Seth as one I'd liked but it just jumped out as us when I found out I was pregnant with him. I love that it can't be shortened/lengthened (even though FIL calls him SethSeth grr). Problem is, I'd like to find another name that can't be adapted but it narrows the choice down considerably!

Little pixie our next door neighbour has a little boy called noel, he must only be about 6!
25/02/2015 at 09:14
I hate it because OH thinks Noel Gallagher is some god like genius and wants to name any son we have after him. It's not happening.
26/02/2015 at 08:15
I think we need a comparison bump flash popcorn so I can have a guess!!
And Owen can't be shortened - just throwing it out there ;-)
27/02/2015 at 21:45
Popcorn - My H randomly came out with Sapphire the other day as a possible for a second child. Would we sound like crazy hippies though with two kids with gemstone names?
Woowoo - My daughters middle name is Edith - we were going to use Edie but although I like how it sounds I didn't like it written down (weirdo I know!)
