Quoting Back to Noob Status:" OMG! You are pregnant! CONGRATS! :) :) :)"


Thank you!!!



I am, so I'm on the desperate search for a list of names that my BF won't totally despise. His taste tends to be simpler than mine, and he'll probably turn down all of the awesome Greek mythology names that I love so much... so I'm trying to pick ones that I think he may be okay with.



Girls:
Daphne
Hazel
Fiona (still not sure if I like this one, or just like the sounds)
Phaedra
Fallon (I'm just really liking the "F" sound, apparently)
(And of course I love the Imogen, Iphigenia... Andromache, Antigone, Electra, and all those crazy ones.)



Boys:
Elias
Felix (I think he's nixed this one already... ha)
Leander
Fenton (I like the sound, not sure on the name)
Asher (but doesn't sound good with the LN).




I'm definitely narrowing down FNs before delving into MNs. haha

I honestly like ALL of these! Fiona is one that I've always loved but SO vetoed, and Hazel is on our MN list. Elias was in our top 2 boy name options and Fenton is a family surname we considered for a boy MN. So, your little person is a winner with any of these in my book!

Oh, HOORAY! I am glad to hear that! I know he likes Elias and Hazel, I'm going to make a big ol' list before I go over names with him.




Any other suggestions you think should be on this list? :D

Well, since you like mythology-based names, do you also like ancient Rome inspired names? Like August, or Julius?

I do... but I don't want to do a month name... I like some Roman names, but prefer the Greek. And love Shakespeare, but he's already nixed most of the names I like. haha

She always enters, uggh. It's like nails on a chalkboard when I see it.
But it is a legit spelling!! It was in a baby name book!

I don't understand why people feel the need to change the spellings of names.



My cousin is naming her son Kole. Really!? You can't just keep it Cole?

K I just caught up. Congrats and welcome back!



Leander keeps growing on me too. I see it the last 2 pages and I think of Lysander though from A Midsummer's Night Dream. Dunno why.
