My husband and I are trying to conceive…but being a name nerd, I have already been working with him to come up with a short list of names (from my very long list!). Boy or girl, this baby will be surrounded by music, art, and big nature for most of its childhood. For girls I like classic, nature, and feminine names, and I prefer to stay out of the top 100. Husband likes family names; I’m trying to convince him that the middle name is a perfect place for those. I have a much harder time with boy names. I like short and classic, not too masculine, not too feminine. Husband, who is an artist/musician likes more creative names for boys. Last name is one syllable, starts with T. Here’s what we’ve come up with so far. I would very much like your opinions/suggestions!
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Lou[/name] (My great grandmother/husband’s grandmother but I worry that [name]Violet[/name] is too popular)
[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]June[/name] (Nod to my brother via Catcher in the [name]Rye[/name]'s kid sis, long story but lots of meaning for me/birth month of my dad, my grandma, my mother-in-law, and hopefully baby!) Concern: can we ever get past phoebe of friends??
[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Luna[/name] (Husband’s suggestion/my dream middle name, also means red moon which has a lot of significance for my hubby and me)
[name]Iris[/name] [name]Allison[/name] (Husband’s suggestion/my maiden name)
Other family names that could be used: [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Jeane[/name], [name]Dee[/name].
Also husband really likes the name [name]Indi[/name], and while I think it’s cute, I don’t really like any names from which that nn could derive…[name]Indianna[/name], MAYBE?
(middle name will probably be either [name]Evans[/name], [name]Hyde[/name], or [name]Joseph[/name]…)
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Hyde[/name] (One of the few names I really like, but is it too posh for artsy outdoorsy family? Too popular?)
[name]July[/name] (Husband loves it. I’m having a hard time with it. )
[name]August[/name] (Again husband loves it. Me? Eh. It’s just not classic enough…or is it?)
[name]George[/name] (Maybe. We love [name]George[/name] [name]Harrison[/name], it’s classic…but is it cute? and can i really see it on a 2 yo? a 7 yo? a 16yo?)
[name]Robert[/name] (Nickname [name]Robbie[/name] after husband’s dad)
Thanks for all your help nameberries! I trust your opinions!
