hey i am new to this board but we just found out i am expecting and IF it is a girl we would like to name it after DH's mother who passed away 4 years ago. sooo her name was Sherry Lynn here are our choices so far

Maylee Lynn (just use her middle name) or,
Sherlynn Whitney (both names used in first name and my name as a middle name)

i think i like maylee better. it has always been my favorite name.

oh and for boys i like

Gage Oakley or
Braxton Oakley (middle name is Dh's name)

so... what do you think?

Hello & Welcome!!!!

I don't really like Maylee, and I don't like the way Sherlynn sounds.
As far as the two combos go... I think Sherlynn Whitney sounds better because Maylee Lynn is a bit of a mouth full.. something just doesn't flow right.

For boys, I think Braxton Oakley sounds better.

Good Luck!! & Congrats on your pregnancy!

I love Gage.
I'm not keen on Sherlynn put together like that, I think it sounds better Sherilyn.
Braxton reminds me of Braxton-Hicks contractions, I've never liked it but it seems fairly popular so I guess most people do.
Gage Oakley has my boy vote

Whit,

I love the name Maylee. It's so unique, I've never heard it before. And for boys, I like Gage Oakley. Good luck on deciding.

I like Maylee, but I'm not sure I like it with Lynn (which I guess is a forsure thing)
I like the name Gage better.

I like Sherrlyn (but I like Sherrilyn (Cher-a-lyn) better unless you are pronouncing it that way). Maylee is cute too.

I like Braxton alot better than Gage, only because when I read Gage the first thing that came to mind was 'Gag'. I know everyone says "well kids always find a way to make fun of names no matter what they are" but I think Gage is a very very easy target. But if you like it go for it, I'm just giving my 2 cents. Oakley is a really cute name though and I think it goes pretty well with Braxton.


welcome and good luck in deciding
