Well, it's going to be a GIRL!!!

And we're really stuck with names! We liked our list for boys but are pretty 'meh' towards the girls names we both don't hate!

My friends just gave birth to little Violet and I think it's perfect for them/her. You'll come to a name you both love :) Congrats!

I mentioned Violet! My husband's response: Willy Wonka.

Don't think we need to worry about Meghan. I like old fashioned names. The hubs likes hippy names... I figured flowers were a good compromise, but he doesn't seem to like any that I can tolerate (there's a whole list of no names because I was a teacher for 7 years... some truly horrid children).

Violet was my #1 choice with Alice.

My husband's was Rebecca. 

We both vetoed all of each other's choices.  We went into the hospital deciding she would be Sophie or Ava, depending on what she looked like.  We ended up with an Alice.

I'm always envious of people who can figure out a name before the baby is born.  I HATED that my daughter didn't have a name for 4 days after birth.  During my second pregnancy, my one ask of my husband was that we have a name before I entered the third trimester.  He was named 40 days after birth...  <sigh>  We are those people.  ::)

My unsolicited advice:  When you DO decide on a name that you both agree on - TELL NO ONE (at least no one that you know/care about in real life.  You can tell us.  ;))  Reason being is that people will think they have the right to an opinion if you tell them before the baby is born.  And it's hard enough to have a name you both like.  :P

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS ON THE LITTLE GIRL.  I just adore having a little girl.  She definitely keeps me on my toes.  :D

I take it everyone is healthy and happy?

I wonder if this is as strong as you think it will be.  I'd bet that the overwhelming love you will feel for your baby will quickly overwhelm any bad memories of horrible ex students.  I'm not sure though, because I wasn't brave enough to name my kids a name I disliked.

Correct - banned (girls) names are: Daisy, Amelia (and unfortunately Millie and all nick names...), Leah, Molly, Camilla, Georgia, Florence and Emily. Which is fine because I don't particularly love any of those names anyway... perhaps because of the memories?? Jesus some of them made my life hell.

We really are struggling a little bit - my husband went through the top 1000 names last night and didn't love a single one (except for two I vetoed). Maybe we should look at family names next. Very importantly for me, I want the name to be pronounced pretty much the same by his family (broad West Yorkshire accents) as by mine (Southern Californian surf dude drawl).

A name I'm very drawn to now is Grey.  I don't know why but I love it.

And in 2014, I wanted Violet.  Maybe I just like Crayola crayon colors as names?  ;D

He was named 40 days after birth...  <sigh>  We are those people.  ::)

My friend's husband wanted his son to be named after him, making him 'Name, the III'.  And my friend didn't want this and suggested alternatives.  The only names the husband wanted as alternative were old Norse/Viking names that were long and unpronounceable by looking at the spelling only.  Standstill.  Not budging.  They went a while without a name for their son.  Finally, giving up because she just wanted to call the baby something, they ended up with 'Name, the III'. I think she still would have preferred a different name, even as the baby is now an 8 year old child. 

Good luck with a name PhysicsKate. I am sure your baby will be wonderful, whatever she is called.

I suspect my husband feels the same way.   ::)

His reasons for not liking Frazer:
1.  Too Scottish.   ::)
2.  Sounds like a surname.

His top pick was Harrison.  Ummm....   ::)

Anyways, we got there.  I "won" but it was no victory.  But he is adorable and we love him.  And he's very much a Frazer.  My husband knows my love for the name was greater than his dislike for the name and I know he's happy that I have so much pride in his name.  It's very tough though.  That's why it's super unfair for "others" to give opinions.  It's hard enough for the mom and dad to agree!
