Hey ladies I have been on the pregnancy boards for the past few month because I would check with the 2-year old board and it always seemed slow... My name is Heathir. I have a 2yr old DS, Izayah and I'm expecting DS #2 in september.... Just wanted to say hey and hope ya'll don't mind me just jumping into some discussions!
Wow its crazy how fast 9months can fly! We just found out on Tuesday that we are having another boy... We have no names picked out, we thought we did but about a week before the U/S started looking again and now we can't agree on anything lol... The hardest part for me is finding somethign to go with DS's name what names do you have in mind and what is DS's name?
For our DD our naming criteria so far is that we will not consider "J" names because I have 6 nephews who all have "J" names and so that is just too much. We are avoiding "A" names because we don't want to start the J thing with A, and we are avoiding "B" names because our last name starts with B. That being said we would consider A and B names if we really love them.
We are leaning towards Grace for the middle name because it was DH's Grandmother's name. I got to give DS my Dad's name for the middle name, so I am fine with honoring one of his relatives with DD's middle name.
Along those lines we would like to incorporate "Ann" in the name since it's my middle name, my Mom's middle name, and my sister's middle name is JoAnne. It also goes way back in my Mom's family. We wouldn't use the name Ann outright because my brother named his daughter that- Ann Elizabeth.
So some of the names we are considering are: Tiffany Miranda Andrea Melanie Morgan
I also like Hannah, but DH does not, so it's pretty much out of consideration.
Wow you have alot of Criteria to meet lol... I love the way that you have incorporated ann into those names tho... Its neat! I thought about naming little one Isaac, spelled Izak, because we call Izayah Zay and we could just call Izak Zak, but DH hates it, so thats a no! lol... Its so hard to find something that sounds like it belongs in the same family with Izayah without getting something crazy or really popular... My sister has said that if she ever has kids she will name her little girl Miranda... Love that name!
jlynnpaine - thanks for the welcome.. How far along are you and do you have a DS or DD at home? what are you expecting this time?
thanks lol.. and if she ended up being a tomboy randi would work... not crazy about ti for a little girl but who knows she may like it better!... there are lots of options... or she could just go by her middle name ...
LOL, my SIL was actually petitioning for the name Alyssa, to go by Ali (or Ally). That was what they would have named a girl had they had one, but they ended up with five boys- John, Jacob, Joseph, Jared and Justin. My other brother named his only son Jeffrey, so I just don't want another letter run on of names. And like I said one of my two nieces is Ann, so there are already two cousins with A names.
I did say I would consider an A name if I loved it, I just already talked myself out of Alyssa or Alison since I knew that was the name they chose. I had no idea my SIL would encourage me to use it after all. I still feel like even though they can no longer have their own children that maybe someday they would adopt a girl and I want to reserve that name for them.
