    hello all. i am nearly 29 weeks pregnant and dont know what sex im having. me and hubby are having problems agreeing on a name for a girl. i prefer something a little bit unusual (not crazy though!) and he is more traditional. with our son, we had the same problem. my husband wanted stanley, which i loved as it was my grandads name, but didnt think it suited a baby so much, but didnt have an alternative. anyway i had a horrendous labour and after the baby was sorted out he went straight to his dad. he looked at me with a bundle of blankets in his arms and said he doesnt look like a stanley, hes a deacon! (it was the first name that came to his head out of the name book!) he got the james as middle name after hubbys grandad and i think it sounds lovely and really suits him. if this baby is a boy i think he will be Ostyn William (not sure what he will be if he doesnt look like an Ostyn!). but we are absoultely stuck if its a girl. i like pretty girly names like lily, eva, mia, but we have these in the family already. i like willow, but hubby doesnt. help - i really think that this is turning my hair grey!

    Our daughter is called Anais (pronounced An-ay) which i absolutely love and the girls names we had this time before finding out it was a boy were Laney, Brooke or Talia.
    I love unusual names for girls but traditional names for boys so ive always had fun coming up with loads of girls names!
    Good luck hun xx

    I wanted to call Chloe Isla. I think its so pretty but Mark hates it.

    Chloe was going to be Molly but it didnt suit her. The 3rd name on the short list was Lauren. A boy woulf've been Finley and if #2 is a boy it will be Leo

    We'd pretty much agreed on the name Tallulah for a girl (which can either be shortened as Tully if she's a bit of a tom-boy and lulu if she's a girly girl) its a Celtic name meaning princess... I found it searching names by meanings online, I wanted a princess!

    Funny that we're calling him William now that we know he's a boy... William being a prince and all... makes sense really!
