Along with food aversions, I seem to be having “name aversions”. Names I used to [name]LOVE[/name] and thought we had settled are now just falling flat. Ideally, I would like to have a list of 3 names for each gender and we can decide for sure when we meet this little guy/girl.
Here are some names that we used to like (or only one of us likes) so you can get a better idea of the direction we are headed.
[name]Henry[/name] - this was our #1 top pick for a boy, but I don’t think I love it anymore. I am just hearing it all the time and am a little tired of it. It’s DH’s grandfather’s mn so it’s staying on the list just in case I have a change of heart. Maybe as a middle name…
[name]Edison[/name] - DH’s other granfather is [name]Edward[/name] and this was what we planned on for [name]Henry[/name]'s mn. I like the way it sounds but all I can this of when I hear it now is “addison”. ugh!
I also like the sound or “feel” of these names but wouldn’t use them for one reason or another (because they dont sound great with our ln or they got vetoed)
I feel like there were lots more but I can’t think right now…
[name]Charlotte[/name] - this was the ONLY girl’s name we could agree on! And, like [name]Henry[/name], I’m just hearing it all the time and it’s not that exciting anymore.
Other names I love (they have ALL been vetoed):
Names I love the “feel” of but am not brave enough to use:
Names DH likes but I’m not sure…
Our last name sounds like tee-myer. It’s difficult to spell so I’d love for our baby’s name to be simple and straightforward so they don’t have to spell out [name]BOTH[/name] of their names for their whole life.
Any and all suggestions welcome! Thanks!!!
