I love lots of girls names but only a couple of boys names. I'm not pregnant or anything so to be fair I can't claim to have tried particularly hard to think of boy's names I love; I'm just interested in names and, on here, I think "Oh what a lovely name" far more often for girls than boys names.
I find boys names much easier. We have a great list of boys names we love and I would be very happy to use any of them.
I am really worried about having a girl as there are no girl names I really love. My DH and I also disagree a lot over girls names, although we had no problem agreeing on boys names. At this stage we have a short list of girls names that we both think are ok but Im not very happy about this, so am still searching for new girls names I love.
I loved loads of girls names but had four boys. I did find it hard to find boys names that I both liked and that I would actually call my son and that dh wouldn't veto! He was actually quite against ds4's name and had to be persuaded.
ComeAlongPond - have the same problem. The other names I mention don't work with surname (boo) but I actually like more IYKWIM; e.g. not massively wild about Benedict as a name, but it means blessing and after 3 MMCs if I'm lucky enough to have another child it WILL be a blessing, and Ned is a NN I like (despite the negative connotations in Scotland).
I love loads of boys' and girls' names - the problems start when DH have to agree.
We already have a DD and are trying for another child and I have in mind a boy's name but not so sure for girls - maybe because I think two girls should have names that balance each other whereas nice boys names are of a different nature to nice girls names. I prefer classic boys' names (for a child of mine at least) but I feel girls' names can bear being a bit less traditional.
Did not know sex of child in pregnancy - when pregnant with girl only had girls names, no sensible boys names at all. when pregnant with boy only had boys names no sensible girls names at all. now no longer having more children no names at all that I want.
