I am in here looking for a girls name, I have loads of boys but never girls. My mum I dont speak to any more not becuase she ruined my choices when I had my son lots of other things though I said no one will know my choices till the baby gets the name. I dont like people disecting names on me
So my dad who i do speak to has suggested natasha which was his mums name, now William is named after other halfs dad so i think they think that seems fair and my OH is all for it but I am not. Its a nice name and all but it dosnt feel right? like not the right name. You know when one jumps at you and you know.
Unless I am having a boy that is but size indicates girl to us. So now my dad I think is and will be more offended if I dont choose his mums name and I know its my choice and to be honest theres going to be a row over something anyway and my mum will more likely start about it more than my dad.
I need girls names our surname is Smith and baby brothers name is William James. Plenty of boys we have no girls.
Also others have suggested names and when i dont take them they get offended to. Not like I dont like em just not fitting with me at all.
I like Amelia but know loads called that to and OH isnt fussed on that.
As for people getting offended - don't let it worry you. If everyone suggests a different name you will offend everyone except one person in that case and people can't be so ridiculous as to think they are the only ones to come up with a name for YOUR child.
When others suggest names I usually just say: That sounds like a nice name. And not commit to anything at all. In the end the choice is yours and they are the ones who will suffer if they choose to be offended - not you.
I have been on google for months looking and I just cant settle on one at all. I dont know why this is so hard for me and easy for others. With my son we had his name the day before he was born we had a feeling then we knew for sure he was a boy. But never had a girls name then. I rather have a name for i know when i have baby in hospital everyone will be up doing my head in with names and getting offended. My mum got offended i wouldnt call my son Ruddolf last time. Like Ruddolf wtf?
ah great now someone has started a facebook war with me because I said I didnt know their names and I wasnt shortening my baby name whatever it was. Now she is doing status updates nasty directed at me which I am not rising to. Sick of her anyway. I wanted strong English names and i get seasons and flowers instead. And i am not calling after someone i dont like or one of other halfs exs if you get me. Its not something to be taken lightly. I got bullied over my name all my life so i dont fancy my child having that also.;
You shouldn't feel guilty about not using names people suggest. It's a personal choice between the baby's parents. Others can offer ideas/feedback -- this can be very helpful bc choosing a name is a HUGE responsibility! But ultimately, you & OH have to decide!
Is there a variation of Natasha you may like -- Tasha maybe? Natalie (similar)? Sasha? Natalia? Or maybe grandma's middle name? Do you like Natasha as a middle name option?? (ex. Ava Natasha) Is there a feminine version of your dad's name that could be incorporated? Using a family name is a nice tribute -- but certainly not mandatory!
I do like Robyn there. I may but that on my list actually . Natasha as a middle name is ok but not much goes with Natasha?? I cant think of a middle name for Robyn dont think that will go. but I do like it. People keep giving me names that are seasons , months and flowers it
I always liked Gabrielle but we have one in the family that my OH dosnt like.
