View Full Version : Name my baby!

I figured I'd give you all something to talk about. Today I was looking at baby names since this is the first time going into a pregnancy that we don't have either a boy's name or girl's name picked out. I could honestly find no boy names that I liked at all besides Cameron, which dh has already said no to. :( I really hope it's not a boy, as he probably won't ever be named. I came across a girl's name I liked. Serenity. I think it's pretty and it's a little bit different which fits my style pretty well. Feel free to throw some other girl names at me or middle name suggestions for Serenity.

Yay, my favorite topic! :)
I've always loved the name Serenity. You should know, though, that it is the name of a major brand of adult diapers. I don't think that's necessarily a deal-breaker, but it's also not something I'd want you to discover after you named the baby. I think I'd pair a classic name with Serenity, much like you used Alexandra with Rayne. Maybe something short, like Jane or May. Although Serenity Jane contains two Firefly references (the name of a character and the name of the ship), so maybe not.
I think River would be a fabulous choice for a sister of Rayne. ;) Do you like nature names in general, or just Rayne?

How about Skye?

Rayne was a name that dh loved immediately and took me some time to come around to. So not necessarily into nature names but some of them are ok. I actually like the name Forest for a boy but I can't do it because of that darn movie! I asked dh what he thought of Serenity but he refused to comment because he didn't want to get stuck with using it or something lame like that. :p Oh well. I can't wait to find out what we're having. Still a long time away.

I know a 7 year old named Forrest Edward, but he goes by Teddy since his dad is also Forrest. I like it and I honestly never think of the movie.

I know a Forrest too. Never thought about the movie.

Are you hoping for a girl to round out the gender numbers? You'll find out again right? Serenity is pretty!

Yes, we are finding out again. Hoping to find out around 16 weeks again. :) And the first thing I think of when I hear the name Forest is Forest Gump. I just can't do it.
