HELP for a picky mom-to-be!
Hey there, everyone!
Just found out that my husband and I are expecting in late July, and we are completely stumped with what to do about names! I love names, so this is a huge dilemma...if you could offer any suggestions at all, I would be so grateful! :)
For a boy:
I love the name Liam, and I feel like it would be a good way to honor my FIL, who is named William. However, my husband doesn't like it, and I'm not a fan of how popular it is. I don't want to go with Will, since I'm a teacher I've probably had 10-15 Wills come through my classrom (lol). I also really like Asa and Ezra (both old family names), but my mom and sister are pretty against those and think they sound too antiquated. Any thoughts on more traditional names in that family?
For a girl:
I'd like to go with a middle name of Elizabeth (my middle name before marriage) or Erin (my sister's name), but I'm extremely picky about girl names. I strongly dislike anything that sounds invented or like a last name (Kaylee, Kylee, Madison). I also love literature and am looking for something different. I really like Alice, but my name is Allyson, so that one's out.
Oh, and here's another twist...our (unusual) last name starts with a B and oddly enough kind of describes a scenic natural landscape, so I'd like to avoid nature-sounding names so that the child doesn't sound like a place, if that makes sense?
Thank you SO MUCH for your help...I know this is very picky ;)
