So DH and I agreed before we knew what we were having that if it was a girl, we'd call her Ruby, and if it was a boy, we'd call him Owen.

Now, not surprisingly, he's having second thoughts about Ruby (he attributes it to the fact that he just really loved the name Owen and has to get over not using it. I think he's just trying to push my buttons, since I have LOVED the name Ruby since before I was even pg. Argh.)

Now we are debating over names and I need some input. Help!

I voted Ruby, but I like Ainsley too. Not to offend anyone, but I am not a fan of Alicia.

Aww, I voted Ruby before reading too. I hope your DH can get back on board with it. My second pick would have been Ainsley.

I like Ainsley best, but a shorter name with 4 letters goes better with Jack (i.e. Ruby). I like Alyssa better than Alicia, but I think Alicia is pretty too with "Ali" as a nickname, maybe. Ivy is okay =) I prefer the other 3, though!

My order of preference would be

RUBY (with several exclamation points inserted)
Ivy
Ainsley
Alicia

Uhh...so basically the order you posted them

I love Ruby so much I can't think of anything else - DH didn't like it or else it definitely would have been a HUGE frontrunner here! Plus, Ruby and Jack is the cutest little set of names ever!

I KNOW, right?!

I am going to kill DH if I end up with something other than Ruby. I like Harper too but it's too close to our nephew's name (you know, the one who is the Messiah. )

I like Ivy, and then Ruby.

I do not like Alicia (just because I had some bad experiences with a girl named Alicia)..

there was a girl named Ainsley who got teased a lot when we were in middle school. They called her Anusly. Poor kid hated her name and changed and went by her middle name, Michelle and became Shelly in high school.

...Every time I see the name Ruby, I think of Max and Ruby.

Good luck deciding on names, hon!

Anusly?

I never would have thought of that. That's creative. And mean. Thank you for the heads up, Les! Ainsley may have to come off the list!

I picked Ruby becuase you liked it so much.

Honeslty none of the names are my style, but if i had to pick Ruby is the cutest. And i like that it is 4 letters like Jack.

I chose Ruby as I do really like it, but then thinking about it with Jack I thought of Jack Ruby who was the guy who killed Lee Harvey Oswald. Ivy would be my second choice. It's very pretty too. Sorry, but I really don't like Ainsley or Alicia.

Ainsley makes me think of a character that I really liked on The West Wing, so I would say I lean toward that one.

But really, you've talked about Ruby for forever, so it would only make sense for you to go with that one!
