AM I NUTS? I think i may go into the delivery room with no name?

any one else experience this? just cant find the perfect name? and if so what ended up happening - we are all over the place…

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Rose[/name] (too old sounding?), [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mae[/name], [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mirabelle[/name], [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Brooke[/name], [name]Emma[/name] [name]Brooke[/name], [name]Lily[/name] (no middle name!), [name]Ilana[/name] [name]Mae[/name], we’re at our wits end!!!
desperately need some clarity! :slight_smile:

I like [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Brooke[/name], actually you have a lot of nice options! Something will click.

[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Emma[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Ilona[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

Thank you so much for the suggestions! lily mae is cute :slight_smile: why isnt anything clicking? how do so many women just know? lol…im so scared of picking something and regretting…

I adore [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mae[/name], and [name]Ilana[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is very striking! I think [name]Lily[/name] [name]Mae[/name] or even [name]Lily[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] would be lovely as well.

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Rose[/name] is nice. But I like [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mirabelle[/name] better.

[name]Plenty[/name] of people don’t have names picked. A friend of mine went into hospital with a list of names, no idea what she was having, and took three days to decide on [name]Flynn[/name], which wasn’t on the list! Her neighbour went into hospital convinced she was having a boy (didn’t know, she was just convinced) so when she had a girl it took two days to agree on [name]Ruby[/name].

My brother was meant to be a [name]William[/name], but when he was born he looked like a [name]Ben[/name].

There’s no written law that says you must have the name picked out beforehand. Sometimes once you see the baby you just know the name :slight_smile:

I am in exactly the same boat so you are not alone! I am two months away & can’t find any names that I love & I’ve looked for months! From your list, I love [name]Emma[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]! :wink: good luck! I’m sure whatever you chose will be beautiful!

I didn’t feel certain about the name that we picked for our daughter until I saw her! My husband picked it so he felt really definite, but I wasn’t so sure!! When I saw her face I just knew! Maybe that will happen for you or you will be able to pick from your list better once you meet her! Good luck!

I am in the EXACT same place and I have just stopped stressing even though I think it’s crazy to pick in the delivery room. (I feel like I need to live with the name for a week before she arrives to be sure.) I am due [name]March[/name] 30, getting induced [name]March[/name] 27. We still have no name. My husband won’t even talk about it with me anymore! It’s getting super annoying. I don’t know what to do! I can’t sleep thinking about it.

At first we couldn’t decide on a name that we both loved, and now I don’t even have one I am totally in love with either. I have read thousands of blogs, printed out the top 1,000 names from 2010, 2000, 1990, 1980 and even 1940! I am on this site constantly searching for inspiration and I don’t think I have the perfect name still! I truly never believed that people could make a decision in the delivery room, but I am hoping it will happen to me.

When are you due?

We have the same style of names. I love [name]Anna[/name] the most because it’s the least popular. But [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Lily[/name] are perfect names too! I also love [name]Madeline[/name]. All your names are great.

Our options are:
[name]Marian[/name] “[name]Mae[/name]” (after all four of the great-grandmas)

I think [name]Lily[/name] [name]Mirabelle[/name] is best. [name]Anna[/name] [name]Rose[/name] just seems like there are thousands with the same combo out there.

[name]Anna[/name] by itself seems a bit bland, even though it’s beautiful it needs a little spicing up. [name]How[/name] about [name]Marianna[/name]. (Pronounced [name]Mare[/name]-ee-[name]AH[/name]-na). That way you get in [name]Anna[/name]. The names with -bella seem to be taking over, so just to be different I though it would be nice. Its always gotten a positive response from anyone I’ve told. Or how about [name]Annaliese[/name]? I plan on using it for our first girls mn. [name]Marianna[/name] [name]Rose[/name]. Since you like [name]Mirabelle[/name] and [name]Ilana[/name] how about [name]Milena[/name]? or [name]Mila[/name]? or [name]Alaina[/name]?

[name]How[/name] about [name]Liliana[/name]? Kind of combines [name]Lily[/name] and [name]Anna[/name]? [name]Ilana[/name] is pretty, I think I like [name]Ilana[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] better though :slight_smile: Good luck!

[name]Anna[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is very sweet. I like it.

Have you considered any longer An- names with [name]Anna[/name] as a nickname? [name]Anneliese[/name] (or Roseliese for that matter, seeing as you like [name]Rose[/name]), [name]Annabelle[/name], [name]Antheia[/name] or maybe [name]Ania[/name]/[name]Anya[/name], to spice [name]Anna[/name] up a little?

[name]Madeline[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] is lovely but the nn of [name]Maddie[/name] would not suit me.

[name]Anna[/name] is classic and [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mirabella[/name] gives it frilly, flouncy vibe.

Have you considered [name]Amelia[/name]? [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Brooke[/name], [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Anne[/name], [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

amandaberry’s suggestion of [name]Anneliese[/name] is lovely.


[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Isla[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Anna[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Cecelia[/name]


I love [name]Brooke[/name] <3
Liked rollo’s suggestion of Amelia Brooke very very pretty!

Liliana Brooke is nice too
Madeline Brooke is wonderful nn Leni
Elena Brooke
Annabella Brooke

Are there any names that you for some reason have taken off your list that you really did like and perhaps need to reconsider?

I really like [name]Ilana[/name] [name]Mae[/name], it flows very nicely. [name]Emma[/name] and [name]Madeline[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] seem just ordinary to me, as does [name]Anna[/name] [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Anna[/name] [name]Mae[/name]. What about:

[name]Iona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Maelle[/name] [name]Brooke[/name]
[name]Maelys[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Lilianne[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Laelia[/name] [name]Mae[/name]

[name]How[/name] about using [name]Rose[/name] up front? [name]Rosalie[/name], even, if you think [name]Rose[/name] is too plain by itself. [name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Madeline[/name] or [name]Rose[/name] [name]Annabel[/name] would be really sweet.
