Ryan was one of the first names we actually agreed on, so we just went with that. We both were on complete opposite ends of the spectrum with boys names rolleyes.gif

Aliyah was going to be Olivia but DH came up with Aliyah last minute and by that point, we had thrown around SO many names, and I had about six girls names on my list that I couldn't decide between so I pretty much said whatever and he ended up making the executive decision there. It took me a long while to really get used to liking her name, but its grown on me now that she fits it so well wink.gif

Mason was another one that we had just come to agreement on. We were wanting a family name, but since the other two have family names as only the middle name, we wanted to follow suit and give him a name of his own.

Mckaylee was suppose to be Olivia Hunter Grace......Then we found out that Olivia was the #1 name that year and dh remembered that I had mentioned liking Mckaylee when I was younger....so he suggested we go ahead and use it....So it was suppose to be Mckaylee Hunter Grace.....but we ended up dropping the Hunter.....Grace is a family name on dh's side.

Mckaylee totally fits her.....I could'n't imagine her with any other name.

If Mckaylee had been a boy....she would have been either Lance or Maxwell.....


Russell I swore was going to be a girl....his name would have been Scottlyn Rose.........but my little girl ended up having a penis.......Dh already had a boys name picked out......Russell is dh's grandfather and great grandfathers name....Nathaniel is dh's brothers name.

The names I had picked out for my oldest were Aaron Joseph (Joseph is his paternal grandfathers middle name) and Ivory Rae if a girl...Baby was born a he so Aaron Joseph he is. His biological fathers mid name is Ivor and my mid name is Rae.
My oldest girl's names were Lily Ann Marie or Elijah Maxwell Lee, Ann is my mother's middle name and Marie is my grandmother's middle name. (see a pattern developing? hehe) Maxwell would have been after my grandmother Maxine and Lee is a family name.
My step-son's name is Daniel Ray, Ray is after his father and I don't know where they got Daniel or what his name would have been had he been a girl.
My youngest girl's names were going to be Kyla Raye or Kameron Lee. Ray is my husbands mid name and Rae is mine so we combined them.

In case you didn't notice hehe all of my kids have unique first names and named after someone for the mid name. It works for us

We decided on names while we were dating and Avery was always going to be Avery, we just couldn't decide on a middle name. Our choices were Avery Savannah or Avery Elizabeth but at that last minute we decided on Avery Sophia.

Dylan was almost a Bryan but the nurses and doctors when he was born decided he looked more like a Dylan - now  he is simply known as Dilly Pickle rolling_smile.gif

Aww, I call my Dylan--Dill Pickle too!

He was always Dylan. Tom suggested the name I agreed and that was that. Peyton was Anderson for a couple months, but no body in our family liked it so we finally decided on Peyton. If he was a girl he would have been Ella Rose-- Rose after my grandma.

My friend just named her baby girl Ella Rose!!

Alexander was the only boy named dh and I both agreed on. And Lance is dh's middle name also.
If he was a girl it would have been Mikala.

Now that we are having another one dh doesnt like that name so much anymore

for Raina-Rane' i originally wanted to name her Rainbow Jazmine Lynn. DH wouldn't go for Rainbow. he liked Jazmine but not really Lynn. He wanted to name her Renee but i wasn't that crazy about it, to common for my taste. so we compromised. her name is now Raina-Rane' (sounds like Renee) Jazmine. i briefly thought of naming her Anastacia but figured people would end up calling her 'stacie' and well DH 's girlfriend before he met me was named 'stacie' so nope wasn't gonna go for that. lol! she would of been named River had she been a boy.

River's first name was always going to be River if he was a boy. His middle name is James (which is DH's first name) but we did consider using Jude as his middle name. had he been a girl we were gonna name him Stormie-Rose Dyanne.

for Romma-Reese we'd briefly thought of naming her Stormie-Rose Dyanne or Stormie-Breeze Dyanne but the kids wanted her to have the same initials as they do so we decided on Romma as the first part of the name and either Reese, Rae or Raven as the second part. we actually put the 3 names in a hat and had my mom draw one out. 'Reese' is what she pulled out. we chose 'Jade' as her middle name so her name is Romma-Reese Jade. had she been a boy we were gonna go with Roman Jude

Preface: Yes, I know this is an old thread, but that's OK!

Anyway, my story is about me rather than what I was going to name my own child. My parents almost named me Matilda. I want to apologize now to anyone named Matilda right now, but I just don't like that name. I've never met another Matilda though...
Since my dh found out about that from my parents he likes to tease me and call me Matilda just to give me a hard time. He seems to get a bigger kick out of it when we're in public and he says it loud enough for other to hear. I've been calling him Frodo to get back at him.

With Nathan - we knew before we started ttc... boy - Nathan Ryan (Ryan is dh's name) and girl - Lisa Aryn (Aryn jumbled has the same letters as Ryan).

With Tyler - we were undecided until he was born. We had narrowed it down to Tyler, Matthew, or Sean. I picked Tyler Michael because it went so nicely with Nathan and Michael because it is dh's middle name. Had he been a girl - still Lisa Aryn.

Now if we ever had another (I can only hope), boy - we'd have to start looking again. Girl - tossed up between Lisa Aryn or Lisa Lea.
