We can never agree

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all,

TW - Miscarriage and infertility

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I have been TTC for 18 months. We unfortunately had a miscarriage in [name_u]December[/name_u] 2020 and lost our baby, we always felt like he was a boy and we called him [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] before we lost him.

We are still ttc and have a girls name that we adore (with back ups) but boys names are a massive struggle for us, even though we like similar names. We just don’t feel that any names compare to [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] but it’s too much for us to use it in the future.

Our girl name is [name_f]Annie[/name_f] [name_u]Florence[/name_u] [name_f]May[/name_f]. With our back ups being [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f], [name_f]Orla[/name_f] and [name_f]Maisie[/name_f]. Boy names we like but don’t quite love are; [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], [name_u]Rex[/name_u], [name_u]Rudy[/name_u] and [name_u]Ezra[/name_u]. The middle name for our boy will likely be [name_m]Mark[/name_m] after my brother. I have a huge family and I work with children so there are lots of names that are off the table straight away. Our surname is Irish and starts with M.

Any boy names suggestions would be great please :relaxed:

First of all, big hugs to you 🫂 the subject line here “we can never agree” makes so much sense here, of course it’s harder to name a son after what you’ve been through.

Since you like [name_f]Annie[/name_f], maybe [name_u]Albie[/name_u] would appeal? Probably too close to be siblings though.

[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_u]Curtis[/name_u]
[name_m]Louis[/name_m] or [name_u]Louie[/name_u]
[name_m]Boaz[/name_m]
[name_u]Ira[/name_u]
[name_u]Gus[/name_u]
[name_u]Max[/name_u]
[name_m]Ty[/name_m]

I’m sorry to hear about your miscarriage. [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] is such a sweet name! :pleading_face:

Your style strikes me as kind of vintage-casual. [name_u]Rex[/name_u] makes me think of other vintage mini names, like [name_u]Kit[/name_u], [name_u]Gus[/name_u], [name_u]Jem[/name_u], etc. But with a short middle name like [name_m]Mark[/name_m], I think I’d recommend going with something a little longer.

I really like @eattacosforbreakfast’s suggestion of [name_m]Boaz[/name_m]! Seems like a perfect alternative to [name_u]Ezra[/name_u], and it comes with the adorable nickname “Bo”.

Here are some names similar in style to [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], [name_u]Rudy[/name_u], and [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] that you might like:
[name_u]Theo[/name_u]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u]
[name_m]Archie[/name_m]
[name_u]Eli[/name_u] / [name_u]Elias[/name_u]
[name_m]Eben[/name_m]
[name_u]Asa[/name_u]
[name_u]Freddy[/name_u] / [name_u]Freddie[/name_u]
[name_u]Asher[/name_u]
[name_m]Isaac[/name_m]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]
[name_u]Ellis[/name_u]
[name_u]Jesse[/name_u]

How about
[name_m]Buddy[/name_m]
[name_m]Patch[/name_m] (Patrick)
[name_u]Bobby[/name_u]
[name_m]Todd[/name_m]

I love the double consonants for you as a nod to SoNNy

Some ideas:

[name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_u]Elliott[/name_u]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u]
[name_u]Jasper[/name_u]
[name_m]Kian[/name_m]

[name_m]Mark[/name_m] could possibly use another mn for a better flow.

I hope thinking about names helps you grieve, heal and dream of your future baby.

First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. hugs to you I really like the name [name_m]Rafferty[/name_m] nn [name_u]Rafe[/name_u]. I think [name_u]Rafe[/name_u], [name_f]Annie[/name_f] and [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] all go well together (all have double letters) and the name has Irish origins. It means abundance and prosperity - both of which I wish upon you. Good luck in your search!

I’m so sorry for your loss. TTC is exhausting, especially after experiencing a miscarriage like you did. We had a chemical pregnancy after 3 years of TTC and I was devastated. We finally are almost 20 weeks with our little rainbow baby now. I hope you’re in the same place soon :heart:

[name_u]Sonny[/name_u] is a great name. It’s spunky and fun and also somehow classic.

A few ideas for boys…
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
[name_u]Atlas[/name_u]

Sorry to hear about your miscarriage. [name_u]Sonny[/name_u] is a lovely name, as is [name_f]Annie[/name_f].

I had an idea as both of you children have the double n in their names, maybe using that would be nice way of linking then to this new baby.

Names with the double N in them:

[name_u]Flynn[/name_u]
Finn/Finnian/Finnegan
Lennon/Lenny
[name_u]Conner[/name_u]
[name_u]Bennett[/name_u]
[name_u]Ronnie[/name_u]
[name_u]Brennan[/name_u]
[name_u]Quinn[/name_u]

i’m sorry for your loss mama :heart:

annie florence may is lovely!

since sonny, charlie, rudy and ezra are big names in my list, i’ll suggest others that have the same vibe to me. i apologize for any repeats, and i hope something clicks!
