Top 2 Tuesday- Baby Names



This week over at 'The Undomestic Momma' the Top 2 Tuesday topic is baby names. I've said a few times that we are done having kiddos, but you never know what the future holds for our family, so I can still dream about baby names, right?!

My girl name choice would be, well, I actually have a few girl names that I like. I love the names Campbell, Andersyn and Marley. I think I would go with Andersyn if we ever had another girl. There is just something about that name that I L.O.V.E!!!

We've had the same boy name picked out since we got pregnant with Addaline. My favorite boy name is Cannon, but I also love the name Camden (its getting too popular so I wouldn't use it).

When we were pregnant with Addaline, before we knew she was a girl, we picked out her name and the boy name, and chose their middle names also. I love being able to call the baby by name the second you find out what you're having. With Macie, we were struggling with her name, because we both wanted something different. I'm SO glad we chose Macie and not the other 2 names we had picked out, they other 2 are now some of the most popular names out there. And if you know me in real life, you know I have to be different when it comes to picking baby names!

I'm totally with you girl, I don't want my kid to be an "Amanda" of her time!! I would hate to have to share my name with 50% of the kids out there, so I wouldn't force that on my offspring!

I love Andersyn - so original!

Lacey said...

If this would have been a girl we were going to name her Marley. I love that name. That has been my "girl" name forever. And my husband has a cousin with a son named Kanin. I had never heard of anyone naming a kid that before but I love it - so unique and fun!

This is a great topic!!! I love Marley and Camden-- they're my favorites! I know an Anderson (with an "o", not a "y"), and she was a... unique... girl, so the name has a bad association for me. But I like it in theory!

Your comment on my post today made me smile... I'm glad SOMEONE knows where I'm coming from!

I am also so upset about the name Camden! I hope it slows down in popularity by the time I have kids!

Paige said...

Cute, cute names! I love the name Marlye. Hope you have a great week!

Sonya said...

All of the names you mentioned are great. Especially the girl names! I am on the hunt for boy names. I am due July 1st with our second, a boy and we don't have any clue what we are going to name him. So weird because I knew from the minute I got pregnant with Lauren what I wanted to name her.
