    I've been trying not to, well not until after 1st trimester is out of the way.... but i can't help it!:blush::shrug:

    I keep looking up name websites and hounding dh :laugh2: to see if he likes them.. dh isn't allowing me to think of girls names too much, as he really wants a boy, so so far i've been concentrating on them, here's a few i'm thinking of:

    Finlay
    Evan
    Blake
    Aidan
    Ryan
    Corey

    Anyone else want to share some name ideas??

    Arlo is a lovely name, have never heard it before, really nice, and very masculine. Love Jasmine too, that would be one of my girls names, but not allowed to think about them! :rofl:

    I started dreaming of names as soon as I found out I think, I was so excited. However, my boyfriend wasn't really interested in picking names lol, and I kept changing my mind, so we had a "shortlist" going into the hospital but did not actually choose her name until she was born! :)

    lillypiesmummy, Rosa is a beautful girls name, I like that one myself but I work with someone whos daugher has that name so rules it out for me.
    Clarabella, I have a Blake, he is 3 in June, we came across the name only about a week before he was born and it really suits him, I also have a Benn who is 6.
    Struggling with names this time, for a girl I like Kitty but Dh doesnt, we both like Nylah but stumbed other than than. For a boy we like Leo (but others dont, not that that matters really!), Oscar and Austin. Think we are going to find out this time if its boy or girl so will have plenty of time to consider :)

    My brother, dad and friend are all called Austin so I am def staying away from that name, despite my brother's protests!

    Said friend, Austin, has a 2 year old they called Zane. The most perfect name for a kid, especially this little bundle of energy!

    I've been thinking of lots of names!!

    But me and the OH can not seem to agree!!

    i really really really want Eve for a girl. But he hates it.

    We are sort of agreed on two boys names:

    Riley
    Cain

    What do you guys think of Eve? Do you imagine a little old lady when you hear the name? (as my OH says, lol)

    And which of the boys names would you pick between? Riley or Cain? I'm more pro Riley to be honest, but opinions would be nice.

    Yes we are thinking about it- lol! Already! We had some names we liked picked out before we conceived because we started talking about starting our family a couple of years ago well before we even started TTC.

    My partner is Japanese and we will live there (but in Brisbane, Australia for another 6 weeks) so we are trying to stay away from names that have too many L`s or R`s as Japanese people struggle with pronunciation (my name has both...Laura....and most people can not say it...I get Raula a lot)

    Boys names
    Kai
    Elijah (I love it, but we might struggle over the L, and getting kanji for it)
    Noah
    Shion
    Jeidan
    Bailey (would be Beiri in Japanese, but I could live with that)

    Girls

    Mia (or Miya)
    Aiyana
    Kohana
    Misaki


    We like the middle names Grace for a girl.

    I think the boys middle name would be James as it is a family name and the name of our very close friend.

    We are definitely undecided on final names.

    Bloodbinds - Eve is a nice name, think i prefer Evie too though, although Eve doesn't make me think of a little old lady at all! Riley is my favorite of your boy names.
