[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all- I’m currently pregnant with my 4th child and DH and I cannot agree on a name at ALL! We have 2 girls and a boy already- [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] ([name_f]Lillie[/name_f]) [name_f]Diana[/name_f], [name_m]Jonas[/name_m] [name_u]Lee[/name_u], and [name_u]Addison[/name_u] ([name_f]Addie[/name_f]). I struggle with picking names because I’m absolutely set on having SOME kind of meaning behind the name- [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] was the name my mom always said she wanted to name me; [name_m]Jonas[/name_m] came from my favorite book, The Giver; and [name_u]Addison[/name_u] was always the name I used for characters when I wrote stories in elementary and middle school. [name_f]Lillie[/name_f]’s mn [name_f]Diana[/name_f] is my grandmother’s name, [name_m]Jonas[/name_m]’ mn [name_u]Lee[/name_u] is my dad and grandfather’s middle name, and [name_f]Addie[/name_f]’s mn [name_f]Claire[/name_f] was my great grandmother’s name who had recently passed. For this baby, the middle name will either be [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] (my middle) or [name_f]Faith[/name_f] (hubby’s sisters name) if it’s a girl or [name_u]James[/name_u] (a family name on both sides) or [name_u]Tyler[/name_u] (hubby’s middle) if it’s a boy. Here are some names we’ve discussed but have vetoed:
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] (I love this name, but I feel like it doesn’t fit with [name_f]Lillie[/name_f] and [name_f]Addie[/name_f]. Also, I love the NN [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] while DH prefers [name_f]Lottie[/name_f], and we’re from the south so I HATE how this sounds in our accent)
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] (also like this, not as much as [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], but the only good nickname I could find is [name_f]Carlie[/name_f], and hubby and I both have family with variations of this name so it would be repetitive)
[name_u]Lennon[/name_u] ([name_u]LOVE[/name_u] this and so does hubby, but we don’t want a repetitive L initial beginning and also has no good nicknames for a girl)
[name_u]Avery[/name_u] (see above)
For boys, we’ve discussed [name_m]Wesley[/name_m], [name_u]Noah[/name_u], and [name_m]Holden[/name_m].
