So I was reading the blog of my friend who’s pregnant with her first child. She found out she’s having a baby boy!! Yay!! Check her out here: Awaiting Our Green Bean (it’s cute cuz her last name is Green)
She put up a request for help with names. Her criteria was that the first name had to start with E and the middle name with A (like the dad).
I posted a comment and gave her a few ideas:
Evander – Erren – Emmanuel – Efraim (is that how u spell it?) – Ellis – Eric – Evan (love it) – Ethan – Everton
Adam – Aiden – Alex – Abram – Alden
And then I looked through other folks’ comments and saw this one from MsBabyPlan at TheBabyPlan:
“I started listing names even before I met my Hubby.”
Do you know how happy that comment made me?
I don’t feel like quite the freak anymore, because there’s at least one other crazy out there like me!
Ever since I was a teen I decided I was going to have a girl and a boy (cuz I can just choose and make it happen easy like that lol) and they were going to be Joshua and Corrine.
John hates both names.
I now have a growing list of possible names for our future children, and I will toss names at John at random times to gauge his response. He usually either hates them (and just says a flat out “hell no”) or is indifferent (and gives me a shrug and a “meh.”)
Here’s my list (with faves in bold):
Boy: Owen, Carter, Gavin, Ryan, Gerren, Jack (John’s Dad), Jacob (not twilight related, I swear!)
Girl: Cassidy, Maya, Zoe, Ryan, Chloe (my Dad’s Gram), Ayla, Carys, Avery, Sarah
(sidebar: you don’t know how hard it was to refrain from bolding all the girls names lol)
But, I’m kinda excited cuz the other day (i will admit this to you, but if you tell John i will DENY DENY DENY!) I was watching…*COUGH* the new 90210 *COUGH* with that cutie Liam and thought what a fabulous name that was…and added it to the list.
|PS – if you don’t know the show, this is Liam.|
I threw the name Liam out at John and he said… “OK.”
Now, to you that’s just two little letters, but in the baby naming game we have going on, “OK” is a freaking MAGICALPIXIEDUSTFIREWORKLUCKYCHARMSEXPLOSION!!
Turns out, he’s always liked the name Liam. I was so happy we had a name he actually liked for a boy that wasn’t John or Thomas (his gramp’s name).
Luckily, he’s FAR less picky with girl names. Though he straight up hates my number one draft pick: Cassidy : (
What are your favorite girl/boy names? Did you and your hubby have a hard time picking names you both agreed on? Do you have any E name suggestions for my friend? What do you think of our list so far? Any ideas?
