Naming Rights.........

Round Number 3 of pregnancy brings lots of naming issues.
The good news is...I get the final say on this one.
The Hottie gets to veto my choices.
But...again, I get the final say.

I have a list of names that I like.

Probably like 20.

They're listed in my phone so I don't forget them.
Forget. I do that often.
The Hottie only likes about 5 of them.
But, he only REALLY likes 1.
I had narrowed it down to 3 names.
And then I brought another one back.
One that the Hottie likes, but everyone else hates.

Our top 3 names are...

Piper - my favorite
Violet - Brady's favorite
Ella - Bryan and Lil's favorite

The name I just brought back...
Charlotte - we'd maybe call her Charlie.

The middle name for ALL of them...


Recently, we found out that one of Bryan's cousins in Connecticut is expecting.
We're all friends on Facebook.
Don't ya just love FB?
We're due within days of each other.
It's their 4th child.
They've got 3 boys.
Guess what???
They're having a baby girl.
Yippee!! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!
Guess what else???
They've decided on the name...

Ella Grace.

Yep, no lying. The Hottie's favorite name. Taken.
He's still thinking we're going to use it.
I'm thinking NO.

Did I mention they have the same last name?

So...we'd both have an Ella Grace Campbell, and maybe even born on the same day.
I don't think so.

The Hottie says we're back to square one.

He is now veto'ing all of our other names.

Boy, it's a good thing I've got the naming rights...isn't it??

do you have any name suggestions???

I have always like Grace as a middle name too!!! I wanted to use it if we had another girl one day. :) That happened to us with our first pregnancy- we wanted the name Emma if it was a girl and my friend who was a little ahead of me decided to use it! Luckily, we ended up having a boy, so it wasn't a problem. :) I say use whatever name you want, regardless of what other people name their kids! :)

Bart said...

i like charlotte...i love girl names that have nicknames of boys names

Robin said...

I'm on board with Charlie. I still think you can use Ella and I love Grace. Don't forget about Murphy and Finley. Don't worry too much about the name. She only has to live with it until she is old enough to get it legally changed.

Karen said...

I like Piper. I think Grace is a perfect name middle or first.

Lizzie said...

Piper is my fav name! I have had two friends that named their little girls that this year, but that never bothered me before - if you like it, use it! And of course, I am partial to Ella, but if my cousin was using it, that might be a little awkward. And Violet is so pretty, and unusual. I don't think you could go wrong with either Piper or Violet, both really great! Can't wait to see what you decide! xoxo
Oh! And my niece's name is Charlotte and we call her Charlie and she's really pretty and sweet and nice, so Charlie's a great name too! :)

Ella Grace!!!! #1 =)
(i say u go with what u love reguardless if someone else loves it also...what if we hadnt found out that they were going to use the same name? )

Justin says something that ends with a "Y"

So again Ella Grace....it just fits with everything. Love it Love it!!!! Perfect

Ashley said...

CHARLIE!! I LOVE it! I love Piper, Finley, Ella, Quinn, and Stella. I'm obviously with Bart on LOVING boy names for girls!

Megan said...

I really like Piper, but then her initials would be "PG" like Parental Guidance... maybe that's a sign that you don't want to give yourself :-)

I loved Ella, but totally agree you can't use it.

Charlotte is super cute..

Others I think are fun: Harper, Addison, Madison, Chloe...

Heidi said...

I really like Charolette Grace and calling her Charlie. I also really like I like Piper too but I know that isnt a favorite of the Hottie. Good luck honey!!! It isnt easy!

The Cuties' Mommy said...

Thanks for responding everyone - I get so excited to read the responses!!

I have TOTALLY ruled out Ella Grace. Yes, I love it and so does the Hottie but, it is really difficult for me to use the same name when they can be born days apart or even on the same day. It's okay though...Brady is cute - he keeps telling bryan that it's okay because we gave our name to someone else!! :)

Charlotte is a top contender in my book and of course, so is Piper. Bryan seems to be coming around a bit...

If you dont want to accept Willamina Grace Campbell. How about Molly Grace Campbell

April said...

Molly(has the Y) is a GREAT!!!

Krystle said...

I love the name Molly. It's the only girls name I even thought of when I was pregnant. Hope it helps and good luck =)

Robin said...

I like Molly and Harper.
