Baby #5

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I are having such a hard time coming up with a girl name (pretty sure baby#5 is a girl, due [name_f]September[/name_f] 14!) The biggest problem is we just don’t fall in love with any name we see or hear or, if one of us likes it, the other hates it. And we don’t have any relatives we like enough to name a child after! :sweat_smile:
We’re Catholic and would like to try to use a [name_f]September[/name_f] saint and/or a [name_u]Marian[/name_u] name, we already have a [name_f]Mary[/name_f], but wouldn’t be opposed to using a different version as a middle name or calling a child by their middle name instead. Our last name is 3 syllables. Our children’s names are:
[name_f]Samantha[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Ann[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]
[name_m]Joseph[/name_m]-André [name_m]Alphonse[/name_m]

All suggestions welcome!!


[name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] (Pope [name_m]Cornelius[/name_m])

Sorry if these aren’t what you’re looking for :confused:

Such beautiful named children!!

I’m Catholic too, so all of the names in my signature have at least one sort of saints name.

Crescentius - [name_f]Crescentia[/name_f]
[name_m]Gabriel[/name_m] - [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f], [name_f]Gabriella[/name_f]

[name_u]Marian[/name_u] names:
[name_f]Mary[/name_f], [name_u]Marie[/name_u], [name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Maris[/name_f], [name_f]Guadalupe[/name_f], [name_f]Lourdes[/name_f], [name_f]Fatima[/name_f], [name_u]Maria[/name_u], [name_f]Marianne[/name_f], [name_f]Mariana[/name_f], [name_f]Mariposa[/name_f], [name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_f]Mae[/name_f], [name_f]Marigold[/name_f], [name_f]Ann[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u]

Thank you! I’m looking for anything!
Another problem I didn’t mention is that between my husband and I, we have 20 siblings! Lots of names lol! [name_f]My[/name_f] mom just had a baby and named her [name_f]Juliana[/name_f] [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f], so [name_f]Gabrielle[/name_f] wouldn’t work, but I’m going to put [name_f]Paula[/name_f]/[name_f]Paulina[/name_f] on my list! Thanks for the suggestions! :blush:

Some [name_f]Mary[/name_f] related first names:
[name_f]Magdalene[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Maggie[/name_f], [name_f]Lena[/name_f])
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f] (I feel like this would fit in best with the siblings’ names)

Other Bible first names:
[name_f]Gabriella[/name_f] (I looked it up and St. [name_m]Gabriel[/name_m] Taurin Dufresse is the saint for 9/14)

Sept. 4th : [name_f]Rosalia[/name_f] [name_m]Justinian[/name_m] 9st. for Sept 5th)
or [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_f]Michaela[/name_f]

I’m thinking [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]/[name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] would be a great fit with your older children’s names!


I like @Prairiekeeper 's suggestion of [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_f]Michaela[/name_f], too.

I second [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_f]Michaela[/name_f]. I also like [name_f]Teresa[/name_f]/[name_f]Tess[/name_f]/[name_f]Tessa[/name_f].
