    Okay, so maybe all of you will think I'm wacko for already thinking about names, but the idea of seeking out possibilities of what my child might have really excites me and makes the pregnancy seem real (still sinking in!)
    Has anyone else started giving any thought to a name?

    Definitely! OH and I started discussing names when we first started trying. Now that it's official, we've almost settled on a girl's name, though we can't agree on a boy's name (we're both hoping for a girl!)

    I think it's normal to think about names!

    When I was pregnant with Lex, I don't think I had much interest in what her name would be until I knew she was a girl! That was almost 6 years ago though, so I could be forgetting a bit!

    Well, my OH and I are from different backgrounds, so we want to make sure that we pick a name that works for both cultures, isn't too popular and we both can stand.

    Ultimately it doesn't matter if it's a girl or boy, we'd still love either equally, but we're raising my OH's two sons and even have three male dogs and I'd just love another female presence in the house! But of course we're trying to prepare with names for either!

    I've read that women with PCOS have higher rates of miscarriage, so talking about names is good for taking our minds off the constant worry about something happening to the baby. It's a positive discussion!

    We have a hard time with boy names. We didn't know our sons name till after we knew he was a boy and finally agreed on Haiden lane.
    This time around I haven't settled on a boys name yet, we have different taste with them.
    Girls are
    Tinley
    Amberlee
    lyla
    matilyn

    I think my husband refuses to look at boy names, he's determined its a girl :rofl: I think its a girl, but probably a boy :) but that's cause his family hasn't had a girl in 60 years, so it seems impossible to me lol

    Ive had my boys name picked since i was a teenager lol. However, I'll probably have another little girl which I have no idea on. It was hard enough me and the OH deciding on a name we both liked for our LG, so god help us this time hehe x

    I have quite a long list of both boy and girls names, in fact I had a list before I found out I was pregnant, and I wasn't planning on having kids for a few more years!

    I have a girls and a boys name but now need two of each just incase!
    I find girls names much harder than boys, there's so many boys names I love. Jessica wasn't named until we knew she was a girl at 23 weeks and it was literally the only name we could agree on. Our names we have picked for this time around if anyone is interested is Holly and Jake. I also like Ronnie for a boy named after my dad xXx

    Love Holly and Jake!! Hopefully you will have one of each so you don't have to think of anymore names! How about Jacob Ronnie?? I think it's lovely to name children after family members :)

    There's literally tons of boys names I love:
    Archie
    Toby
    Ronnie
    Sidney
    Lennie

    With girls there's some I think are ok, but not ones I love! It's funny how kids really fit into the names you pick them too, when I had Jess for a while I wanted Mia but she is definately a Jessie. So pleased I picked her name :) xXx
