The PERFECT Name. Whitnie Marie Due October 28; North Carolina 197 posts

How do you pick the perfect name for your baby if you love so many names? What made you pick one over another if you loved them each equally? I'm only 8 weeks, but I feel like there's SOOOOOOOOO many amazing names out there. It seems like an impossible task already!

We couldn't decide on a boys name, but luckily that didn't matter! Our baby girl is going to be named after both our grandmothers, though.

A lot of people will have a couple names and then when they have their baby they just automatically know which name fits them best

We waited until she was born to decide. It was between Clara, Claire, Grace and Elliot (Elle)...the second we locked eyes I knew she was an Elliot

We had a couple of both girl and boy names with baby #3 as we didn't find out the sex. We were having so many arguments on trying to pick just one. So we decided to wait until baby was born and see what suited him :)

We picked Jasper for a boy before I even got pregnant and Ricky was a must as it was in memory of my step dad. So when we foubd out we were having a boy it was easy. This time aroubd was a little harder! If it was a boy I loved Castiel, Connor, Atticus and Raphael. It would have been so hard to pick but....its a girl. I wrote a list and DH crossed out what he didnt like. We were left with Scarlett, Dakota and Saphira. We are naming her Saphira as its the least common and mine and DHs birthstones are sapphires. We are stuck on a middle name the only one weve discussed is Lilu....(leeloo) the character from fifth element But we havent fully decided yet.
Its a process of elimination youll find reasons why you dont like certain names, nicknames ect

My boyfriend of course is like the least pickiest guy ever, he says he'll love whatever name we pick no matter what, lol. So far he hasn't said no to any name I've written down and he's added a few he likes as well which are fine too. It just worries me that I'll be one of those Moms who waits like a week to name her baby. It's scary! What if I pick something and I don't like it after a month?

with my 1st it just hit me it was like a light bulb went off and a bag of bricks all at the same time, lol



when i found out i was preg my mom automatically said t was a boy and started calling him Patrick, so i knew that was his middle name but his 1st i couldn't think of anything, then they said because i love, James Dean name him James, but i hate the nick names for James, so i just said Dean, and it was perfect my mom loved dean martin, i wanted a cool kid name that there wouldn't be 10 in his class, lol



and he just looks like a Dean, and he loves it because he's a bad ass like him..



do u want traditional name, trendy, common,

I definitely want a unique name, nothing common. I don't want there to be 5 of the same names on the playground. Ya know? I don't want something "made up" either. I don't have people that I'll be naming the baby after either, so both first & middle will be up in the air (if that makes sense!)

I just knew with my first.. had his name set before I knew the gender.
I'm having such a hard time with my second.. I thought it was a girl and had a name, since finding out its actually a bit I've got the first name but can't find another name I even like

When your SO shoots down all of your suggestions except one, that's how you know. :)

My husband is the most annoying person ever when it comes to choosing names.



What names do you like right now?
