We need opinions on our tentative names, please!

I’m eight months pregnant (!), and my husband and I are just as clueless about what to name our child (we decided not to find out the gender until our bundle of joy is born) as we were when I found out I was pregnant.

We’ve finally, after months of deliberation, come up with a list of names we both like. The only problem is that we can’t seem to narrow it down at all. We love all of them equally, and so I’m turning to you guys to help us!

Girls:
[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]

Boys:
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]
[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name]

Suggestions would also be appreciated! Especially for the boys–their names are so much harder for us than the girls!

Thanks,

[name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Will[/name]

First of all, I must say that your names (especially the girls names) are very much my taste as well. Most of those have been discussed by DH and I as either first or middle names :slight_smile:

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] - very classic and sophisticated. Its a strong name, but beware the “ev-” trend with names like [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Ava[/name], [name]Evangeline[/name], [name]Eve[/name] and [name]Evie[/name] climbing in popularity.
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - my favorite from your list. Its so beautiful!
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name] - very girly and pretty
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - simple and old fashioned
[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name] - very pretty, but imo, doesn’t stand up against your other choices

Boys:
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - my second favorite of your boy choices. I really like the name [name]Jasper[/name] and the two flow together nicely
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name] - my favorite! Strong and masculine. It sounds like the name of an author or an actor.
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name] - cool and simple
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] - not my style
[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] - not my style
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name] - I like both names but the L at the end of [name]Samuel[/name] and the L at the beginning of [name]Liam[/name] run together

Good luck!

I love love love [name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name] & [name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name].

Good luck deciding :slight_smile:

Let me third? [name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]!

And I like [name]Callum[/name] the best from the boys list.

What great names! :slight_smile: (I love your names, [name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Will[/name], too!)
:slight_smile:

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]: I love both names, and think the flow is beautiful. If you’re trying to eliminate names, it may or may not bother you that [name]Eva[/name] is similar in sound to the super popular/trendy [name]Ava[/name].

You may also like:

[name]Evelyn[/name] (very popular, though)
[name]Genevieve[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name])
[name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Viviana[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Eve[/name]

[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]: I think this is beautiful, too. ([name]Genevieve[/name] is one of my favorite names.) :slight_smile:

[name]Helena[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name]
[name]Phoebe[/name]
[name]Susannah[/name]
[name]Willa[/name]

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]: I love both names, but prefer the flow of some of your other combos. I think that [name]Arabella[/name] [name]Violet[/name] sounds great, though! I also love [name]Violet[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name].

[name]Tess[/name]
[name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Viola[/name]

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Eliza[/name]! [name]Grace[/name] is a very popular middle name these days, but I think that [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is gorgeous. (Would she be called [name]Eliza[/name] or [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]?)

[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]: I love both names, but [name]Sophie[/name]/[name]Sophia[/name] are very popular.

[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]: I think [name]Jasper[/name] is great, and I love it with [name]Thomas[/name]. (If your last name is two syllables, I think a longer middle would sound great.)

[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]: I think that [name]Spencer[/name] is handsome, but I’ve also heard it on girls. To me, it feels different (trendier) than the other names on your list.

[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]: I really like this…

[name]Callum[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]: I really love [name]Callum[/name], but [name]Zachary[/name] still feels very 1980s to me for some reason.

[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]: I love [name]Calvin[/name]!

[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name]: I love [name]Samuel[/name], but because [name]Samuel[/name] and [name]Liam[/name] create back-to-back Ls, I think a non L middle name would sound great!

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

My favorite is [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] coming in second.

My favorite boys names on your list are [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] and [name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name].

I really love all of these! My favorites, if I had to pick, would be [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name].

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]-- This is so lovely! I love the name [name]Eva[/name], and it goes so well with [name]Catherine[/name].

[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]-- I love [name]Genevieve[/name], and [name]Stella[/name] is really pretty, though it could get popular in a couple of years.

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]-- This is also really nice. I love both names, and they flow really well too. [name]Violet[/name] is another one rising in popularity…

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]-- Probably my least favorite, though I do like [name]Eliza[/name]. [name]Grace[/name] is so filler as a middle name, and I think [name]Eliza[/name] should be paired with something more exotic. ([name]Eliza[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name], [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name])

[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]-- Really pretty, but slightly boring

Some suggestions…

[name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Iris[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name]
[name]Annabel[/name]

[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]-- I love [name]Jasper[/name], and it flows well with [name]Thomas[/name]. This is my 2nd favorite.

[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]-- Not really a fan of either name

[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]-- [name]Jack[/name] is kind of common, but nice flow with [name]Elliot[/name]

[name]Callum[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]-- I like [name]Callum[/name]

[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]-- I really like this!

[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name]-- The Ls run into each other…

[name]William[/name]
[name]Declan[/name]
[name]Finnian[/name]
[name]Milo[/name]
[name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Matthew[/name]
[name]Henry[/name]

I love all your names! You have fantastic taste:)

My favourite out of the girls list would have to be [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], it’s so classy and sounds like a very important person:) I love all the other girls names too only, as pretty as it it, [name]Sophie[/name] is a bit too popular for me.

My favourite boys name from the list is [name]Calvin[/name], I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Calvin[/name], so sophisticated but I think [name]Zachary[/name] doesn’t work that well with it, it’s just a different style of name. [name]How[/name] about [name]Calvin[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]? Very Savvy:)

So it’s [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Calvin[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] for me! Good [name]Luck[/name]:slight_smile:

I will star the names according to how much I love them:
Girls:
[name]Eva[/name]* [name]Catherine[/name]*** combo of the two names**
[name]Stella[/name]* [name]Genevieve[/name]combo
[name]Violet[/name]
[name]Arabella[/name]combo
[name]Eliza[/name]***** [name]Grace[/name] combo**** [name]Love[/name] this one the most.
[name]Sophie[/name]* [name]Elisabeth[/name]**combo

Boys:
[name]Jasper[/name]* [name]Thomas[/name]combo
[name]Spencer[/name]
[name]Lewis[/name]combo
[name]Jack[/name]
* [name]Elliott[/name] combo**
[name]Callum[/name]* [name]Zachary[/name] combo
[name]Calvin[/name]*** [name]Zachary[/name] combo*
[name]Samuel[/name]*** [name]Liam[/name]* combo - don’t like the “l” sound at the end of [name]Samuel[/name] bumping into the “L” at the beginning of [name]Liam[/name].

Suggestions would also be appreciated! Especially for the boys–their names are so much harder for us than the girls!

Thanks,

[name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Will[/name] - I love your names!

[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - makes me think of a pirate!
[name]Peter[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Peter[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Philip[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - this is my favorite boy’s name combo other than [name]Peter[/name]
[name]Sebastian[/name].
[name]Reed[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] - if your last name doesn’t begin with a “T”! Or a “G”!
[name]Simon[/name] [name]Henry[/name]

[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name]
I like [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name] the most from your girls list. Possible [name]Eva[/name] [name]Grace[/name], [name]Hazel[/name] [name]Grace[/name], or [name]Grace[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]?

Maybe some different arrangements for the boys?
[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Spencer[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Elliot[/name]
[name]Liam[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]

Girls:
[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]- absolutely beautiful but, like others said, the trend of Ev names is sneaking up on you wiht this one
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]- my second favorite after [name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]. Beautiful.
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name] IT!!!
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]- I don’t like [name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Grace[/name] is very popular as a middle name
[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]- [name]Sophie[/name] is really popular and I don’t think it flows that well with [name]Elisabeth[/name]

Boys:
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]- [name]Love[/name] [name]Jasper[/name], not so sure about [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]- good flow…I like it
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]- Really like it
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]- not bad
[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]- I’m not really seeing it
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Liam[/name]- It migth just be me but since it’s a smidge ‘m’ heavy, I feel somewhat like I’m saying M&M! :wink:

Suggestions would also be appreciated! Especially for the boys–their names are so much harder for us than the girls!

[name]Aurora[/name] and [name]Will[/name][/quote]

Great names!

My favorites from your girls list -

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name]

and from your boys -

[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliot[/name] - I love the way this one sounds.
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - I love [name]Jasper[/name] but I’m not 100% sold on [name]Thomas[/name] as the middle name. [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Elliot[/name] would sound great.
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]

As always, great suggestions from everyone here.

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Arabella[/name] & [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] are wonderful

[name]Stella[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliot[/name] are my favs!

[name]Eva[/name] Catherinee
[name]LOVE[/name] THE NAME [name]EVA[/name]! luv, luv, luv. Im adding it to my favorite names list RIGHT NOW. You really should concider this name, as youve just made it one of my favorites. But I have no child to name. Im only 13!

[name]Calvin[/name] [name]Zachary[/name]
Beautiful :slight_smile:

Wow! Thanks for all the wonderful feedback! [name]Will[/name] and I have gone over our namelist again with your opinions in mind and we’ve refined it. So here’s our new and improved name list!

Boys…
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Gregory[/name]
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Nicolas[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Maxwell[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]

Girls…
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name]
[name]Stella[/name] [name]Juliette[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]
[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

What do you think?

I [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Jasper[/name] :slight_smile: it is so adorable. And for a girl I would choose [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]… I’m really into the name [name]Jane[/name] right now. I really liked all your name combinations though… good luck :slight_smile: and let us know what you choose.

Boys…
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Gregory[/name]: I think this is nice. I really love [name]Jasper[/name]. :slight_smile:
[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Nicolas[/name]: I think it has a nice flow, but [name]Spencer[/name] feels trendier than the other names on your list.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]: I love both names…I know that [name]Samuel[/name] is popular, but it still feels timeless to me.
[name]Maxwell[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]: I think this is great!
[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name]: I think this is very handsome…
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]: I think both names are great, but I like the flow of some of your others better.

I’m voting for [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Gregory[/name] and [name]Maxwell[/name] [name]Joseph[/name].

Girls…
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]: [name]LOVE[/name]!!! [name]LOVE[/name]!!! :slight_smile:

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]: So pretty…

[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name]: I love both names, but because [name]Sophie[/name]/[name]Sophia[/name] is so popular, I like some of your others better. I do think that this combo is gorgeous! :slight_smile:

[name]Stella[/name] [name]Juliette[/name]: I love [name]Juliette[/name], but something about the flow sounds off to me. Hmmm…

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]: I love this! ([name]Matilda[/name] [name]Violet[/name], too…)
I love [name]Violet[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]. :slight_smile:
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]Elisabeth[/name]: I think it’s pretty, but it feels a bit expected/unoriginal compared to some of your others.

[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Rose[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Annabelle[/name] (and [name]Rose[/name] as a first name), but [name]Rose[/name] feels like a filler here to me.

What about [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Violet[/name]?

I love too many of your girls’ names to vote for just one, so I’ll go with [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (huge first place for me) as well as [name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]. I love [name]Violet[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] and [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Violet[/name], too.

I [name]LOVE[/name] your list! :slight_smile:

Take care!

P.S. I’m on the phone, and my friend just voted for [name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Rose[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. :slight_smile:

[quote=“wickedbenevolence”]Wow! Thanks for all the wonderful feedback! [name]Will[/name] and I have gone over our namelist again with your opinions in mind and we’ve refined it. So here’s our new and improved name list!

Boys…
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Gregory[/name] What a great combo, very handsome and fresh!

[name]Spencer[/name] [name]Nicolas[/name] Very smart, manly name, good sound and feel to it.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] again, I am now finding this name very ho hum

[name]Maxwell[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] A nice classical feel to this set

[name]Jack[/name] [name]Elliott[/name] Very nice

[name]Callum[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] Not a fan of [name]Callum[/name]

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jane[/name] A very good match

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] Nice but not fabulous

[name]Sophie[/name] [name]Juliette[/name] spelt [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Juliet[/name], I just love [name]Juliet[/name], so I would make the combo [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], again I would reverse because I love [name]Matilda[/name] so much.

[name]Annabelle[/name] [name]Rose[/name] Very nice

I love your name [name]Aurora[/name] and with that in mind I would give your daughter what I call a fabulous name like

[name]Arabella[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Arabella[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]

or

[name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Tallulah[/name] [name]Viola[/name]

or

[name]Eva[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Bridget[/name]

For the boys the winner is [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Gregory[/name] followed by the intellectual [name]Spencer[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name].

I like these ones.

Girls:
[name]Eva[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]

Boys:
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
