So, Bedazzled made her rounds and is recruiting ladies from the DDCs! It's great though, because DH and I have been stuck on names for a bit. i honestly forgot about this forum. Thanks Bedazzled!

DH and I both have a name we like but are having troubles compromising. He likes one name, I like another. We are willing to use the other's name as a middle name, if our own choice is the 1st name. BTW - this is our first child - a girl. (It better be a girl!!! i don't want to be subject of a surprise!)

So, here's the two names. I won't say who's name is who's - to not create bias.


So, it would either be Faryn Presley or Presley Faryn. (Our last name starts with a C).

those of you who know me from our DDC - please don't mention the thoughts from my post about this in our forum (if you read/participated in it). I say this because when I brought this up with DH, he said I presented it with bias, so it was unfair. I like to think I'm presenting this with no bias to a whole new set of ladies that doesn't know the history! (I hope!)

I'd love your honest thoughts. Dh and I practically got in a blowout fight about this stuff the other night (not about these names specefically - names in general). Who knew naming a child would be THIS FREAKING HARD!!!!! lol

thanks ladies!

Congrats on expecting your first little girl! They are so much fun.

I have never heard the name Faryn before and think it is pretty. I have heard Presley before and think it is cute too. Hmm.. hard call.

I think my vote is for Presley Faryn! Good luck deciding! I complete understand about how "baby naming" conversations can end up with big debates w/your dh! lol

I like the name Faryn, never heard it before but it sounds very feminine to me. I think it flows nicely with Presley (which I'm not too fond of as a FN).

They're both nice though

GL in deciding, and congrats on your girl!!

I think I'm on the Faryn side of the fence. It is fresh, without being out-there or trendy. I think Presley has a trendy feel to it, which has the potential to seem dated in 10/20 years, so I think is perfect for a middle name slot. I also am in love with Taryn

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

thanks for all the feedback! I really appreciate it!

The tally so far - Presley - 6, Faryn - 6. LOL It's a tie!! i'm glad to see DH an dI are not the only ones who are torn.

There's "concerns" for each name -
Presley might be trendy-ish (but not as trendy as Ella, Lily, Olivia, etc).
However, Faryn is pretty unique - she could be correcting people all the time "No, not Karen, Faryn" or "No, it's spelled Faryn". If she has some speech impediment, it could be a nightmare! lol

I really do appreciate the help! *sigh*. Sadly, there's no other names that have been like "Wow! That's a real contender!" I will have to keep looking...

Thanks SavaAngel for my wonderful signature!

I also prefer Faryn, I actually have seen it before on a little girl and she was adorable. Faryn Presley C. also seems to flow better to me and I feel it would age much better.
Also-the whole speech impediment nightmare? Seems like Presley could be not fun there too
I love them both and think they're beautiful names whichever order you decide to use them in

You found yourself over here too!! I won't say a word to the others until you post in our DDC!!!
I like Faryn a tiny bit better b/c you guessed it, it is a little more original. Her initials would be F.P.C. which is fine, no issues there. And I know a sweet little girl named Faryn, so that helps!!
As far as her name being mispronounced, it could happen with any name really. Except for Jessica, lol. But if you want to do original, go for it all the way!! Don't be scared. That is the cost you pay for an original name, it may be misspelled or mispronounced, but with Faryn, I don't think it will be that bad!!

Dying to know what name is yours and which is hubbys!!

DEFINITELY Faryn Presley!

Presley is on the rise. It jumped nearly 70 spots in one year in 2009!

Faryn is unique and unexpected. Plus, Faryn has a better meaning (adventurous).
