My husband and I first thought we wanted to know the sex of the baby but now we think we might want to be surprised I like names that are pretty and short, names that couldn’t be made into nicknames.

I would love suggestions if you wouldn't mind sharing your favorite names!

Here are ours so far...

Jocelyn
Norah
Elise
Ruby
Bess
Effie
Tess


Leo
Trey
Dennis
Gabrielle
Adam
Nathan

Hey Mia! Welcome to JM and congrats on your pregnancy!!
I love the name Tess, very pretty.
I had a friend name Joscelyn, we used to call her Jos though.

Gabrielle and Nathan can both be shortened to Gabe and Nate.
I like the names Nathan and Trey for a boy.

Best of luck deciding!

If you don't like nicknames, you should watch out for a couple on your list. Tess and Bess can quickly go to Tessie and Bessie. Same with Dennis, Gabriel and Nathan - aka, Denny, Gabe and Nate.

Here are some other non-nicknamable names to consider...

GIRL
---
Ava
Eve
Tate
Lynn


BOY
--
Cole
Holt
Mark
Gage

Yeah there are a few exceptions on my list. Most are either family names or Andrew's suggestions. I figure that whatever name we choose someone will find a way to shorten it so I'm not that worried about it.
