DH and i are currently TTC #2 (we have DS beckett reed). our boy names are narrowed down to tobin gray, oliver west or sullivan james. (tobin being the favorite).
we are having difficulty with the girl names. some of our favorites: maisie (can’t come up with a mn we like), isla maeve, ruby jean, fiona bay, matilda bay. DH loves maisie, i’m just in “like” with it. my favorite by far is isla, which is his 2nd favorite. i think we’ve come to the conclusion that ruby is just too popular for us (we prefer out of the top 500).
anyways…i really love the name isla maeve. but i’ve been doing some research on the name maeve and i’m a bit worried about the negative connotations of the name. it has no special family significance to us, other than i just love the sound/flow with isla. other options for isla are isla june and isla bay (but i fear this might have an “ocean” theme going on). what do you think about the name maeve? is the meaning/history of the name too negative? or do you like the sound of isla maeve and don’t care about the meaning?
