DH & I are TTC, but we already have some names we like and wanted to see what others thought.



He has two sons: Chase Eric & Colin Leo and together we have a daughter, Vienna Grace.



Here's a list of boys and girls name we like so far:



Milo Jackson
Mackenzie Belle (MN is to represent my maiden name)
Lilia
Cordelia (Cora)
Gemma
Nora
Aspen
Vada (Vay-da) Not sure how we'd spell it yet.
Viola or Violet
Maven
Waverly (different, but I heard it on a show and thought it was kinda pretty)
Brody
Joel
Bentley James or Bentley Michael




Obviously we have more girl names than boy names but naming our daughter wasn't too hard.. we found one we liked, and never re-discussed it lol



TIA!

Thanks! Bentley was our boy name if our daughter was a boy... I don't like it as much as I did before, so that's why we've been brain storming some new ones. :)

I just don't like how crazy popular it is. 3 of my friends have named their sons Bentley lol, it's a nice name just over used!

Yeah I have noticed that too recently... over 2 years ago it wasn't that popular but I think since Teen Mom has become such a hit it's been a super popular name.

Milo Jackson
Mackenzie Belle (MN is to represent my maiden name)--Mackenzie is overdone and masculine
Lilia--love; my choice for a second girl
Cordelia (Cora)
Gemma
Nora
Aspen
Vada (Vay-da) Not sure how we'd spell it yet--Veda
Viola or Violet
Maven--what is that?
Waverly (different, but I heard it on a show and thought it was kinda pretty)--um, no
Brody
Joel
Bentley James or Bentley Michael--juvenile and overdone



Overall, the names are nice.

Its an okay list except for Bentley, Maven, Waverly and Aspen. I do not understand the appeal of Aspen. A name that starts with ass is just odd and cruel.
