Help us choose an "ugly" name for baby #3!
Hey, name enthusiasts! I'm 7 months pregnant with our third baby, and we don't know if it's a boy or girl. In the time when liquid and raindrop names with lots of vowels are in fashion, our style leans more towards what The Baby Name Wizard book calls "porch sitters" with a touch of "ladies and gentlemen": consonant-heavy, grandma-esque names that have fallen off the charts since their heyday or were never very popular to begin with. We love these "ugly" names. :)
Our current children are Hester Eleanor and Northrop Arnold. For baby #3, our working titles are Sanford Bernard (or possibly Sanford Morris) for a boy and Ardith Dorothy for a girl. All middle names are family names to honor relatives and aren't really changeable. If we don't stumble across anything we like better than Sanford or Ardith, those are the names we're going with.
The name advice I'm looking for is this: Before we sign the birth certificate with either of those names, I want to make sure there's nothing we've forgotten or overlooked that we might like even better. Some other names we pondered but for various reasons didn't make the top slot are:
I'd prefer not to repeat first and last initials (no H, N, or M names -- our last name is German-ish, like "Milz-schmidt"), and we'd like to avoid anything rising in popularity or even in the top 1,000 names the past few years. Can you think of anything that fits our criteria that we may have overlooked??? THANK YOU!
