Names for my surprise number 3

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone, about ten days ago I found out I was expecting my third baby… And it really was a huge surprise since my boyfriend and I had agreed to wait until the end of 2015 to begin trying to conceive. Apparently the antibiotics I was taking for a sore throat, I don’t know the exact words but here it goes: “sabotaged” (? Please have mercy on my Argentine soul) my contraceptive pills. I visited the doctor it turns out that this one is due in the beginning of [name_f]July[/name_f].

Despite the huge surprise, not having planned for a third baby this moment of our lives and careers, we feel so blessed to be welcoming another child… That being said, the name nerd in me is already itching to research and get suggestions of names for a boy or girl.

My girls’ initials are either M. I or I. M, so we think it’s important to follow that pattern, we don’t want one of the kids feeling left out.

So what unique and beautiful names can you think of beginning in “I” and/or “M”? Combos are also welcome.





If I had to pick from all of that I would choose:

[name_m]Ivan[/name_m] [name_m]Malone[/name_m] or [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] [name_f]Iona[/name_f]

Ilove the suggestions of [name_f]Milena[/name_f], [name_f]Isabel[/name_f], [name_f]Madeline[/name_f], and [name_m]Matteo[/name_m]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about:


I had just thought of [name_f]Maura[/name_f], [name_f]Margarita[/name_f] and [name_f]Ilaria[/name_f]! You read my mind! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Irene[/name_f] is so gorgeous in Spanish!

Let’s see… I.M. names…

Ibai, [name_m]Imanol[/name_m], [name_m]Iker[/name_m]- could any of these fly in [name_f]Argentina[/name_f]?
[name_m]Isidoro[/name_m]/ [name_m]Isidro[/name_m]


I think [name_m]Isidro[/name_m] [name_u]Mat[/name_u]ías and Ibai [name_m]Marius[/name_m] would be awesome :slight_smile: or [name_u]Mart[/name_u]ín [name_m]Isidoro[/name_m].

For girls, I like:


[name_f]Mireya[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Imelda[/name_f] [name_f]Miren[/name_f] are quite striking to me.


Other names on my mind are: [name_f]Merida[/name_f], [name_u]Marion[/name_u], [name_f]Maria[/name_f] (my love since a little girl), [name_f]Madrigal[/name_f] (middle name only), [name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f], [name_f]Maxima[/name_f], [name_f]Milena[/name_f] and [name_f]Morgana[/name_f] for girls. Also, [name_f]Ilaria[/name_f], [name_f]Iliana[/name_f], [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] and [name_f]Iris[/name_f] (is this too similar to [name_f]Irene[/name_f]?) are my favorite “i” names.

For boys: [name_m]Ivo[/name_m], [name_m]Ivan[/name_m], [name_m]Italo[/name_m], [name_m]Ignacio[/name_m], [name_m]Maro[/name_m], [name_m]Martin[/name_m], [name_m]Marvin[/name_m], [name_m]Matias[/name_m], [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] (too similar to [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]?), [name_m]Maxim[/name_m], [name_m]Marcos[/name_m] and [name_m]Miguel[/name_m].

[name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_m]Ives[/name_m]
[name_m]Innes[/name_m] [name_f]Milano[/name_f]

[name_f]Isla[/name_f] [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f]
[name_f]Mariella[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Ilsa[/name_f] [name_f]Marin[/name_f]

I think [name_m]Maxim[/name_m] [name_m]Italo[/name_m] & [name_u]Marion[/name_u] [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] go beautifully.

I like [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] for a i name. And madeline for a m name.
Maybe [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f].

I love all of the names you’ve listed as your favorites–here are a few more (hopefully some new) suggestions as well:
