Hi all! Im hoping to become a member of this board, as I love love love names and just now realized JM had a baby name board!

A little info about me, my name is Jessica, and me and my husband Devin have one child, our son Orion Michael (Orion is pronounced o-RYE-on for those wondering) who is 7 weeks old. I am a self proclaimed name nerd, I am always making lists and lists and lists of names. Anywho, Devin and I are WTTC till around January

I have a, diffrent taste in names then most people. Some call it "old lady", but overall I just enjoy names that diffrent.

I hope you guys will have me here and I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Jessica!

I'm a fellow WTTCer! I know completely what you mean about lists and lists of baby names - my DH complains about there being no scrap paper left since I scrawl baby names all over them

What are some of your favorite names?

I have notebooks, and notebooks...and notebooks and random little notes everywhere that are names! I even write names in print and in cursive to make sure I really like them

Top 5's:

My favorite girls names- Alice (would have been Orions name if he was a girl), Philippa, Beatrice, Charlotte, Matilda, and Eloise. I love most names of that style.

Boys names are a bit mor across the board not to style specific- Pierce, Jude, Cooper, Liev, and Nathaniel.

ETA: Congrats on your WTTC! Its not really fun but hopefully the time wil go by fst for the both of us When are planning to start TTC? If you dont mind me asking.

Hello and welcome! Congrats on your little boy - I love the name Orion! It's such a nice, cool alternative to the increasingly popular Ryan.. I can't resist it (of course I also love Ryan, ha).

I'm Kes, mom to three - Luke Andrew, Lauren Alexandria, and Heidi Nicole. I am WTTC number 4, hopefully sometime before the end of the year. Just waiting on my husband to get his act together and impregnate me.

I know it sucks! But hopefully it'll fly by with all I have to get done...we're planning to TTC November or December hopefully - fingers crossed. Did you join the WTTC board? It's an awesome group of ladies over there, really helpful when you're waiting

I havnt joined the WTTC board yet, but I think Im definatly going to! I mean, Im home all day anyways

Thanks for the compliments on my sons name, we wanted a diffrent name that wasnt unheard of but deffinatly wasnt popular. The only thing I dont like is when people ask what his name is and I say Orion and they go, Oh, Ryan? No! Orion! One word/name! I also didnt anticipate the or-ee-on pronunciation problem.

Everyone has such beautiful babies and Im glad some other people have the same taste in names, Im normall very alone when it comes to that.

Thanks so much for the warm welcome!

I love the name Orion! Different but not weird.

Love your other name choices. I'm particulary fond of Eloise as that's my dsd name.

I'm Kris. Mom to Lucinda Elizabeth & Noah David. I'm done ttc but stop by for the fun!
