[name]Hi[/name]! I am due in [name]July[/name] and my husband and I are desperately trying to find/ agree on a name for the little one. We don’t know what we are having so we are picking both boy and girl names. So far our top names are as follows:
I typically like old fashioned/traditional/antique names. For girls I like them to be very feminine. I love [name]Lillian[/name] and it is my husbands grandmother’s name but he thinks [name]Lily[/name] is too popular. I agree [name]Lily[/name] is very popular, but [name]Lillian[/name] is such a beautiful name its hard for me to pass up. I came up with [name]Tessa[/name] after my middle name, [name]Theresa[/name], and my husband seems to be thrilled with it. But I just don’t know? What do you think? We had previously agreed upon [name]Victoria[/name] but I’m not a huge fan of its nicknames so i think we are pulling away from this one. In the past I have considered [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Claire[/name], [name]Sophia[/name], [name]Iris[/name], [name]June[/name] and [name]Gemma[/name] if that helps give you a sense of my taste.
As for boys I have loved the name [name]Jacob[/name] since I was a little girl and always planned to name my son this but it is just so gosh darn popular now that it is frustrating the heck out of me! My husband likes [name]Jake[/name] but not [name]Jacob[/name]. I still love [name]Jacob[/name] but hate its popularity and can’t bring myself to use an overly popular name but also can’t separate myself from it either! I love [name]Andrew[/name] but not a huge fan of its nicknames either. My husband loves [name]Jude[/name]. [name]Jude[/name] is growing on me but I’m not so sure. It may be too “out there” for me if that makes sense. Or am I wrong? does it sound classic to you? I also love [name]Patrick[/name] (its my husbands middle name) but he doesn’t like the nickname [name]Pat[/name] (I agree) and we’re afraid he would get stuck with that nickname.
So after all of that rambling what do you all think would be our best choice? Any other suggestions now that you have an idea of my taste?
