The name Thomas came to me when i was in labour and just as he was born, the midwife asked me "so what are we naming this little man?" and I said Thomas, he wa going to be Luke Thomas, but he didnt look like a Luke. So Thomas it was and it stuck!

Gemma was just a name i really like as soon as i found out i was pg again. No real reason just that it sounded nice.

Aaralyn was not named until she was almost 5 days old Embarassed

I had Jady Jo picked out for her if she was a girl the whole time I was pregnant... when she was born and I saw her for the first time (when she was already a day old due to medical complications) she did NOT look like a Jady so we were back to square one again.

Every day her dad would come to the hospital with a list of names and we'd go through and be like, no, no, no.... then one day he had a baby name list and the first name was Aaralyn and it meant "With Song"... it was perfect and it suites her perfectly too! Very happy

Jami. ive always liked the name Jami for a girl and the spelling (without the 'e') was after the actress Jami Gertz

Catherine was named after James' mum who died when he was 11yrs. she was also due on james' mums birthday, but unfortunately came 2 days later

Benjamin. James wanted Ben if it was a boy. its also my grandads middle name

We spoke about names for months, but as we always new someone called a name so we decided against it.

And then we both watched a film with Harrison Ford in and we both at the same time almost said what about Harrison after many disputes before. We both strongly agreed.

What we need now is another film as we can not agree on any names again(if i was to get pregnant that is) Why we are already talking about it god only know's

Atm we have a name for bump if it is a boy and that is Jack. But if it is a girl we dont know. And Rich mum think it will be a girl. She did have right with David. So maybe it will be a girl.

Vic got named after my FIL (no i wasnt very happy)lol.Vic's reall name is Vittorio James (it means victorie) meant to be called James Vittorio but hey my DH wanted tradition.
This time around we havnt really decided yet but we both like Sam (my dads name)and a few others but we are going to wait untill he is born.

We wanted a traditional name for Charlotte but it took us forever to decide on one. It would have been James David for a boy (David after my Granddad, james is my dads, Marts and my bros middle name) and we decided on Charlotte Amelia for a girl, although for a while it was going to be Amelia Charlotte but we decided we prefered it the other way around.

With George it took us forever to decide on a name, all the ones i liked, mart didn't and vice versa lol. I suggested George and we both agreed we liked it. His middle name is Edward after his uncle.

At the time I was pregnant my cousin was researching our family tree so I used that to help pick names I liked. Other names I picked my mum told me NO (she works in a school and knew menances with all the names I suggested!!!!I do the same now Embarassed ) I knew I wanted robert for a middle name if I had a boy because we were a family of girls (no boys born in the immediate family for over 60years) so I would pass on my Dads name. I went into the hospital with 4 names and then when Joseph was born he was none of them he was wither a Joseph or and ethan but I went with the family name and he became Joseph Robert

My problem is I know people with that name or people who are pregnant and thinking of that name.Teeth

I really like the name Kolton for a boy. But a friend at work has a new born with that name and I think it would be weird. Sad Face

I like the name Kiarah (Key-are-ah) for a girl.But I'm thinking of alot of names right now-of course! Razz

I have some friends and family that are going to save there babies clothes for me if I need them soon! Very happy I hope I do! Love

Charlotte was going to be a Lauren until we found out we were expecting a girl then DF said how about Charlotte and we stuck with it so her middle name s Lauren.
Thomas is Thomas becoz its a middle (FIL, BIL, DF's grandad have it as a middle name) name passed down the family but we liked it to use it as a first name and his middle name is david after a lot of other family members (my dad being one)

Hub and I went through name books and checked off the ones we liked. Then there was the discussion. All our names were ones we could agree on. Not an easy feat.
