DH & I both have girl names that we love...
so if we have a girl, I don't think it will be a problem naming her.

As for boys... we are both clueless.
He has no ideas and seems like I will like a name
for about a week and then hate it!

The only name I think I would use for a MN would be DH's mn, which is Matthew.
And that's partly bc I can't find any other names to love!

So suggestions are welcome.

I like names that are non-trendy. I like biblical names or names with some biblical meaning. And preferably a name that doesn't contain the letter L. (they just don't sound right with our LN)

I've got the opposite problem. We settled on a boy name very easily, so of course the 20 week scan showed it was a girl. We can't agree on anything.

Suggestions:

Simon (this was our boy pick)
Jonathan
Daniel
John
James
Jacob
Asher
Benjamin

Thanks gals, for your replies!

Okay, so far on my boy list... I've got:
Jared Matthew
Gabriel Matthew (nn Gabe) - and not sure about the L on the end with our last name.
Jadon Matthew - really on the fence with this one. It's one that I love/hate from day to day.
Preston Isaiah
Isaiah - though I think I'd like this better as a mn.

Names I have recently taken off of my own list were: Owen, Braxton, Caden & Noah- they just weren't doing it for me.
I have the most perfect girl name... why is finding a boy name so hard?!?!
