I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant and on hospital bedrest hoping and praying for every additional day. Needless to say I have lots of time on my hand. I stumbled upon your site and I'd love your input. My husband and I have agreed not to reveal any names candidates or choices until after we name him. This has made the process that much more difficult.
Ok, so I'm VERY picky when it comes to names. I don't like names that are too popular, can be shortened into nick names and initials are important too.
So our son's name is Jameson Richard (last name is McScottish name). That was really the only one we could agree on. Naming baby boy #2 had proven to be much more difficult. He is due August 11 but could arrive at anytime. My son wants to name him "sister" but that's just not going to work. Our girl name from last time around was Theresa which we will most likely use if we have more children. So the two boys could have a sister names Theresa as well.
So here are our top choices - please give me your thoughts, impressions, if you know anyone named these IRL...
Connor Declan McScottish
Connor Joseph McScottish
Declan Patrick McScottish
Declan Thomas McScottish
I'm also open to suggestions. Oh, and "B" names are out because the initials would be BM. Although my MIL didn't think of that when she named my husband who got teased all through grade school. She actually told me I was being too picky about initials, and that's when my husband told her that kids did make fun of his initials...
I love the name Declan, so that's my vote. Let's put a poll over to the right for the four top candidates. [Poll closed; see results below.] And it would be nice if we got a lively discussion going in the comment section---bedrest SUCKS, and we'll see what we can do to entertain!
Poll results (227 votes total):
Connor Declan: 26 votes, roughly 11%
Connor Joseph: 49 votes, roughly 22%
Declan Patrick: 53 votes, roughly 23%
Declan Thomas: 99 votes, roughly 44%
Name update! Vanessa writes:
I wrote to you back in June asking for name help for "Baby Boy McScottish" We had been told he would not make it to full term, but lo and behold, he was born yesterday, August 6, at 39w2d and I was induced at that!
After several more brainstorming sessions, we decided on Declan Thomas.
Thanks for all your help. I loved reading everyone's suggestions. Should we have the pleasure to name another baby, I'll be back to ask for help!
