    I've had the same name for my girl over 10 years - Sophia Cadence

    I can't think of a name for a boy. It took FOREVER to find DS2 a name (we literally named him about a week before birth) b/c DH was so picky. I went through a zillion baby books reading all of the names out loud, and he would say, no, that one is someone I didn't like in high school, or no, you can make a bad nickname out of that, or no, those initials don't really make anything interesting AGH! It drove me crazy.

    BTW DS2's name is William Emerson - we call him "Liam". My grandfather's name was William and my husband's middle name is Emerson. There was a lot of fighting before we finally landed on that name. (We made up, but it was tense LOL)

    I want a girl more than anything, but if I do get a boy, I dread hearing the ultrasound confirmation less than trying to pick out a name!!

    PS > I should add in here that my hubby is a programmer and he would want me to let you ALL know that his son's name spelled backwards is EMAIL and his initials are WEB - LOL

    Sophia is a beautiful name but out for us as we have a niece called Sophie.

    We had a lot of "discussion" about names as well. My DH won for DS1 so I wouldn't budge for DS2 and got what I wanted!

    I used to think boys names were harder but now not so much. At least if we do have another boy I have a few names I love that I can use which will surely make the GD easier.

    I am hoping this thread flourishes and gives me some ideas as I am pregnant with my DG. And I am stressing about the name already. DH likes common names and I like less common names, my stepkids have very popular names and there are always several other kids in their class with the same name and they hate it. Naming our twins was difficult. But at least there were two of them so we got to name one each!

    I liked Matilda Mai for a long time but a friend called her daughter Poppy Matilda Mei about a year ago and I kind of went off it after that. I loved Lucia but we used the masculine version for one of our twins.

    I like girly names like Charlotte but every 2nd girl seems to be called that. I like Arabella but DH thinks its 'prissy'. I like Alexa (Lexi) but Alex is the name of an old boyfriend and DH is not so keen for that reason!

    My fav at the moment is Bohemia Grace. Of course DH thinks I have lost my mind as he knows no-one called Bohemia! Bo for short (which is a chinese name meaning precious). Or even Mia - though that's very common where we live.

    Well, I love the name Saskia for a girl, (haha obvious much?) and the alternative for Saskia is - well - Emmerson and the middle name Michele - after my mum.

    My other boy name (*in case*) is Nash Keenan, Keenan being my mum's maiden name. So either way, the next kid is being named in some way after my mum..

    I know of a Saskia and she gets called Sassy for short. Too cute!

    You have good taste, I like all of your choices incl your current kids names.

    I haven't even started thinking of baby names. We find it so hard to agree on anything. If our first 2 were girls, they were going to be Sophie Marion, and Zoe Belle. I still love Belle (my dog's name is Bella!), but it feels like friends and family have now 'claimed' so many of the girl names I like. And if it is another boy, that is going to be even harder.
    We have DS1 Lucas James, and DS2 Toren Jordan. Lucas has become so popular now, but there are still not many Torens!

    I'm not going to think about girls names again until I know I'm having a girl. I had girls names picked for DS1 and DS2, DS1 was going to be Amelia, DS2 was going to be Alana. I've gone off both of those names now.
    I had a tough time picking boys names for both boys, especially DS2, but now I keep hearing lovely boys names everywhere I go. So for my next pregnancy I'm only going to pick a boys name, and then if I find out it's a girl I'll allow myself to think of girls names.
    DS1 - 5.5
    DS2 - 3

    It's a girl!
