We Might Never Agree on a Baby Girl Name!!!

Ok, so next week I start my third trimester. OMG our baby will be here in less than 3 months now!!! Will update my blog next week with the second trimester baby bump shots.

But for now... name suggestions please!!!!! 
David and I haven't really agreed to anything. He always sends links to baby name websites to me and says, "better start picking out names you like". But I feel its a big waste of my time, really, because I have a long list of names I like and he always hates ALL of them. So every time I pick more names from websites etc, and suggest them to him, he gives a very shit look, as if I'm suggesting a damn awful name. WTF. So I keep waiting for him to suggest names instead, his list is very very short at the moment (see below), and I think I've been really accommodating with his choices. But for my suggestions, its a damn long list, yet he hates EVERY ONE OF THEM.

Ugh!! Are all men like that??


MY Fav Names List (his reasons for not wanting it in brackets)
Ella Mae (He hates this, says it's a slappers name)
Ellie (he hates Ellie a LOT, won't even consider using as middle name)
Lexi (He thinks Lexi is too close to Sexy, so tacky)
Yva Rae (No!)
Nikita (No Russian hooker names!)
Mariella (don't want, people will call her Mary)
Matilda (Don't like)
Fia (NO)
Evie (Don't like)
Molly (a few of his friends have girls name Molly)
Ruby (Don't like)
Heidi (No)
Elsie (No)
Piper (He says AH??? What kind of name is that)
Riley (He thinks it's ok, but I struck this off my list cos my friend's baby is Ryleigh)
Willow (AH???!!)
Winter (Absurd to name a baby winter when she's born in the tropics)
Cadence (He doesn't think this is a name, I didn't make it up though)
Sadie (no)
Isla (no. Maybe middle name ok)


HIS Fav Names List (My reasons in brackets)
Ivy (Ivy is an annoying name)
Angelina (I'm not feeling it. Plus I prefer shorter names)
Sophia (I like, but my friend's baby is Sofia, so cannot)
Shelby ( I said ok. Then later he changed his mind and didn't like it anymore)
Macy ( I liked this A LOT. Got excited even. Then, weeks later, he saw a kid named Macy on FB and she put him off the name)

ARGH!!

PLEASE HELP with some pretty name suggestions. I really like short names like Ava, Mia (but can't use those as my twin cousins are Ava and Mia, plus my friend's child is Mia too)... I love old vintage type names which are not common anymore but pretty sounding like Ruby and Ella. But if you have longer name suggestions, do post them in the comments too, who knows maybe we will both like it!

We both definitely do not like hybrid kind of made up names like Jocynda, or Shondelle. And we both don't want names like Apple, Rainbow, Rain, Sunshine.

    Locklyn! It's of scottish origin, sweet , and easy enough for the neighbourhood uncles and aunties to pronounce and not massacre it ;p yes yes I know vince vaughn named his daughter Locklyn and some people find it too 'celebrity' but then again loads of other names are also celebrity. Good luck and enjoy your baby girl!

      Lol! Whisper it into his ear every night it might work. Although sometimes I think mums and dads only really make up their minds once they have bubs on their arms :) it's an amazing experience!

    1. Una, Ursula, Faye/Fay, Heather. Shortlist a few and u can decide after birth based on baby's character (mine is definitely more Layla than Siena). What we did though, was that in the last few days nearing my EDD we change the name every day or every few days so if baby likes it she can decide to pop. Layla popped immediately when we switched to Layla :)

  39. If you want short and old/vintage names, what about Karen? Lina? Rose?

    Otherwise longer modern names - Seraphina. Saffire. Crimson. Malita. Amelia.
