Talking baby names is one of my favorite things to do. For as long as I can remember, I've kept lists of my favorite names. When I moved recently, I found my list from when I was in HS and had to laugh at some of them (Heaven Leigh) while some of them were still on my faves list (Christian).
We don't know the sex of our baby yet, so we're trying to talk about both names but have a terrible time with boys. To give a very small background, I'm Irish but my family has been here for generations and my husband is Italian and first generation here. I also lost my little brother this year and would like to incorporate his name into our child. His name was Ryan William, but I don't want to use either name straight out b/c I think it's too soon and too heavy to put that on a child. But since my kids will never get to meet their uncle, I want there to be some connection. So far, here are our names and thoughts:
Boys: (we don't really like ANY names, but this one keep coming up)
- Lorenzo / Enzo
- Theo (but I don't care for Theodore)
Girls: (so much easier, I seriously have such a long list it's hard to narrow down)
- Luciana Willa (this is my hubs #1 and he thinks we are done, I like it but not ready to say this is it) Lu for short
- Viviana Willa
- Valentina Willa
- I could list probably 20+ more but I'll keep it simple for now....
