New here but wow, isn’t it cool to find other name obsessed peeps?
I am just about 10 weeks along with baby #2 but no matter how much I scour the web to come up with a “list” of names to consider, I am stuck on just two. No middle names either. [name]Just[/name] two little names.
Older brother is named “[name]Gustav[/name] [name]Ryder[/name]” but he goes by “[name]Ryder[/name].” [name]Gustav[/name] is his dad’s name (and grandpa, and great grandpa and gg grandpa and so on and so forth).
For a boy, I just can’t shake the name “[name]River[/name].” I just love love love it. To me, it sounds sensitive yet strong. Poetic yet rugged. And since older brother [name]Ryder[/name] is SUCH an active baby caveman just teaming with testosterone, I’d like to think that if baby #2 is a boy, this one will sit still in mommy’s lap a little.
For a girl, the only name I love that seems to fit is “[name]Willow[/name].” I have always loved this name. It sounds so feminine and makes me think of cool springtime breezes and lazy days spent skipping through meadows and stuff.
I have posted previously to other boards and the feedback for [name]River[/name] has been bad. Too matchy matchy to [name]Ryder[/name]. Everyone seems to like [name]Willow[/name] as a little sister to [name]Ryder[/name]. What do you think? [name]Don[/name]'t worry, my feelings won’t get hurt.
As for other suggestions, which I would [name]LOVE[/name] - both first and middles - I tend to be borderline hippy. Nothing traditional. Nature names are my favorites. Something totally off the wall that no one would have ever thought of but that is easy to pronounce, understand and spell.
