T-minus 6 weeks and still no name!!
We are due in 6 weeks and still don’t have names picked out! This is our first child and we do not know the gender, so we are hoping to narrow each gender list down to 2-3 names each, and pick once baby is born. We're planning to use the middle name of Ray(Raymond)/Rae for either gender. We’d prefer a name that isn’t too popular (don’t want to be Emma #4 in kindergarten), but it’s seemingly hard to avoid!
Our current favorites for each (in no particular order) include:
Owen – may be too high on the popularity list for our liking
Graham – a friend of a friend named their son this, but would probably be OK
Isla – quickly becoming more popular…
Alivia – would we regret having to correct people all of the time, Olivia is out - too popular
Harper – probably too popular
We both like the name Cameron, but I like it for a boy while my husband likes it better for a girl. We also both love the name Cohen (for a boy), but I’ve read in a few places that this name is not well received for a non-Jewish baby.
Other names that have since been removed from the list include:
I am not in LOVE with any of these names, so I guess I’m looking for other suggestions that we may not have thought of yet, or confirmation that some of our choices are solid. Any help is appreciated!
