Expecting #3 - Please disregard previous post!
I just found out I'm about 6-weeks along with #3. I know I'm starting early, but with my first two I had a heck of a time deciding. Both times we narrowed to two names and left the hospital with a name that wasn't a contender going in! I'm very indecisive.
With my first two I wanted quirky, classic names that weren't too popular (top 25) and had nickname options. We ended up with classic names with nickname options. I think when you are in the hospital feeling pressured, you go with the safer choice. At least this has been my experience. I don't regret my kids names, and we used a family name in the middle for both.
Our daughter is Alexandra Rose (goes by Alex) and our son is Henry Thomas. We want something that fits but that is a little more unique. Please give any thoughts about the names listed and add any you can think of. Of course, I feel like I've considered every possible name out there!!
Girl's middle will most likely be Faye but could be a double with Faye and Denise. Boy's middle will be Frederick, Donald (blah), or James.
Thanks in advance!!
Vanessa- A recent addition. It goes well with the sibset.
Vivian- Not my favorite but goes with the others and I like nickname options.
Romy- My husband's favorite but I don't think it fits with the other two.
Natasha - too obvious with Alexandra?
Gwyneth- I love the name Gwen but my husband doesn't like it on its own, so it's Gwyneth or Gwendolen. I'm not loving Gwendolen; it's too fairy tale for me. I know everyone thinks Paltrow with Gwyneth, but she would go by Gwyn mostly. I love the combo Gwyneth Faye
Boys: We may have to start from scratch with these. My favorite boy's name is Alec but can't use it because of Alex.
Miles - husband's favorite
Charles or Charlie
