Hi again ladies..I know I technically have about 20 weeks to think about this but I really am determined to have a name picked out by my ultrasound on may 8th..I've already decided if we have a boy we're naming him Jude Michael..My husband doesn't have a problem with this so that's awesome..My problem is I'm hung up on a girls name..I can't even start to think about girls names..for some reason my mind just shut down and nothing sounds good..Well almost nothing..For some reason my mind keeps wandering back to the name Matilda..Actually if I'm honest I fell in love with that name back in like kindergarten when I read the book for the first time..I don't think my husband is going to agree with this because he's somewhat plain in the way he chooses so Im not excited to have this conversation with him..Honestly Ive googled and looked through "baby names" and I just can't get very far because I hate everything I see..where do you start?

I'd start with Matilda! I think it an adorable name with lots of simple nickname options for your dh to consider. There's Mattie, Tilly, Millie, Mila, Tilda, Atty.
Cortney...mom to A, C, E, L, I, and R

When I'm Due...

When I think this baby will actually come out

The only Jude I know IRL is a girl. Would you consider using Jude with either gender?

I tried to get Jude on my short list of girl names this time, but DH didn't care for it.

start with a completely ridiculous name. talk about how much you love it constantly for a week. then, when he won't relent, get upset and say "but the only other name I like is Matilda!" and he'll be like, "I like Matilda!" because it was WAY better than the crazy name you've convinced him you love.

The best advice I've heard about baby names: you SHOULD use that name that you have loved forever (no opportunity for regrets!) and the one that your mind does keep going back to! Agree that the nickname opportinities might appease your husbands more "plain" style. And I am a sucker for lengthy, classic girls names.
