Guess I'll go first? Due in November
Hi! Yay for a BNW messageboard!
I'm due with our second child in November. Too early to find out what it is yet, but my hunch is it's a boy, which has me a little nervous because we COULD NOT find boy names we liked last time around. We found several girl names we liked, and then our daughter's name popped up and it just clicked and we never looked back. So I'm hoping that the same thing will happen again.
We're Jewish, and we like Hebrew-based names. I'm very picky about the meanings of names, and I like names that ae unusual but still pretty, but my husband prefers "normal" names, which as you can imagine causes problems. Not that this is at all unusual, of course.
My list right now is Elan (tree), Oren (light), Gideon (tree-feller), and Levi (joining or garland). Trying to stick with the trendy -n ending for unusual names, so that it doesn't stand out stylistically. My husband isn't thrilled about any of them, I don't think, and Levi has the added disadvantage that we know a Levi, although distantly. (We tend to shy away from names of people we know - in this case Levi grew up in our congregation, though he was several years older than we were, and we see him once in a blue moon now.)
And I haven't even thought about girl names.
