Just a couple random questions for you to answer!!! have fun with this


What is your top pick for a boy and girl right know??


What name do/did you like but cannot use becuause someone close to you used it?


If you had to name your child after someone, who would it be and the name?


If you and your DH disagreed on a name, would he give in or would you give into his name?


When it came down to it, would you let someone else choose your baby's name for you?


Do you ask for opinions from your family? Does that affect your decision?


Are there any family traditions of names that you follow? (ex: middle name has to be a family name)

What is your top pick for a boy and girl right know?? Boys is a tie between Elliott & Griffin, but DH only likes Elliott For girls I have no idea!!! I'm at such a loss for girls names!


What name do/did you like but cannot use becuause someone close to you used it? I also really like Brennan for a boy, but it is too close to Brinlee. Also, I love the name Grace, but a close family friend used it so I can't. Another is Isabel, a cousin just used it.


If you had to name your child after someone, who would it be and the name? After my mom and dad. I'd use Jay as a middle name for a boy, and a -lynn ending name for a girl.


If you and your DH disagreed on a name, would he give in or would you give into his name? I think he would give in before I would!


When it came down to it, would you let someone else choose your baby's name for you? NO!


Do you ask for opinions from your family? Does that affect your decision? We might ask opinions of a few family members, but the opinion doesn't matter on our decision.


Are there any family traditions of names that you follow? (ex: middle name has to be a family name) No


How did you finalize your decision? the way it sounded??? If it sounds nice, flows well, and we love the name!

What is your top pick for a boy and girl right know?? Pierce/Natalie


What name do/did you like but cannot use because someone close to you used it? None - I would use a name I loved regardless

If you had to name your child after someone, who would it be and the name? Katherine Elizabeth (after my mom & MIL)

If you and your DH disagreed on a name, would he give in or would you give into his name? Neither - we'd find a name that we both loved

When it came down to it, would you let someone else choose your baby's name for you? Heck No!

Do you ask for opinions from your family? Does that affect your decision? Don't ask for opinions & if they offer negative ones I tell them that they had their chance to name their kids so now we'll name ours whatever we like

Are there any family traditions of names that you follow? (ex: middle name has to be a family name) Our first sons MN will be the same as DH's & his dads.


How did you finalize your decision? the way it sounded? We both just loved the name from the instant we heard it - we never considered using anything else.

What is your top pick for a boy and girl right know?? Luka for a boy and I have no idea for a girl.


What name do/did you like but cannot use becuause someone close to you used it? Hayley & Cameron.


If you had to name your child after someone, who would it be and the name? Well, my daughter is already named after me and my mom (Lynn). I plan on all my kids having their middle names at least some what similar to a family name... Jack or John for a boy after my grandfather and my so's uncle... and Elyse or some form of Mary/Marie after my sister and so's grandmother.


If you and your DH disagreed on a name, would he give in or would you give into his name? It depends. Luka was his name and he won't budge on it. At first I didn't like it but now I love it.


When it came down to it, would you let someone else choose your baby's name for you? No.


Do you ask for opinions from your family? Does that affect your decision? I ask but it doesn't affect our choices.


Are there any family traditions of names that you follow? (ex: middle name has to be a family name) Its not that I'm set on following it but I just really like the idea of middle names with significance (sp?) to them. But if I was to find a name that I loved I'd use it whether it was a family name or not.


How did you finalize your decision? the way it sounded??? With my daughter it was really rushed because we didn't have a name for her until after she was born so I didn't think about it much... but now I just base it on how it flows and if me and so agree and love the name (which is a near impossible thing! lol)

What is your top pick for a boy and girl right know?? Julian Alaric/Julian Vaughn and Audrey Jane. I still really love Sebastian David, too.

What name do/did you like but cannot use because someone close to you used it? I honestly do not like the names in my family. I liked Dillon, but I have a cousin Dylan. I don't think I would've used it anyway.

If you had to name your child after someone, who would it be and the name? Jane after my mother. James nicknamed Jamie after my grandfather. David after SO's father.

If you and your DH disagreed on a name, would he give in or would you give into his name? He's pretty laid back, but he really hates Julian. I'll give him time.

When it came down to it, would you let someone else choose your baby's name for you? Never.

Do you ask for opinions from your family? Does that affect your decision? I wouldn't, no. They have a completely different taste.

Are there any family traditions of names that you follow? (ex: middle name has to be a family name) Nope. SO is named after a relative completely, but I wouldn't follow that.
