Let the name war begin!
We got a positive pregnancy test last week! Our first midwife appointment isn't until around what will probably be the 10 week mark, and my husband and I have already agreed not to even discuss names until the 20 week mark, so naturally that's all I'm thinking about. Naming our boys got progressively harder with the second two. Finn likes nothing. I don't even think it's that he's shooting stuff down just to irk me at this point (and believe me, that accusation was made years back). I think he's just utterly uninspired.
IF we happen to have a girl, I actually think we'll be in safe shape. We have half a dozen names that we both REALLY love plus another handful that we both like, so I think it will be more about narrowing it down than actually agreeing on something. If Ike had been a girl he would've been Genevieve Estelle. Genevieve is still on the list, along with Lorelai, Felicity, Leonora, and Adelaide; we also both love Elodie and Xiomara but I'm not 100% sure we're brave enough to go there. However, I'm confident we can figure something out.
If it's a boy (and we're currently batting a thousand in this department), he may not have a name until Kindgergarten.
Elias has been on my heart since my last pregnancy but Finn was absolutely against it. He said it "just isn't his thing." Okay. I have to respect that. The problem is, he never really suggests anything. I would still use Elias. I know it is similar to Isaias, but odds are they would go primarily by Ike and Eli anyway. I'm not a fan of Elijah. I'm going to fight for Elias again later because I really do love it, and it's been almost 4 years since we last had this battle, so he might go for it now or he might not.
One name I've been thinking about a lot lately is Dominic. I think it fits with the other three well. I'm just not sure I like the sound of Dominic Dillon. Sometimes I think it's great and then in the same second I hate the alliteration. I do think Finn would take a nibble at this name though.
Other thoughts: I really like Augustus. However, in my mind, Atticus and Augustus are just as similar, if not more, than Isaias and Elias.
I've also been thinking about Abraham but I think it might be a little too familiar. I really like Donovan and Sullivan. Ezekiel is another name that I really like but I'm not sure I can sell Finn on. There has to be SOMETHING out there that we both love! Help!
Oldest sons' names: Atticus Luca, Malakai Solomon, Isaias Everett
