I’m just a few weeks away from my due date and my husband and I are having major naming blocks! With our first I knew her name before we were even married. My grandmother is Theresa and I knew Tessa would be the perfect way to honor that, as well as a beautiful name without being too unusual. 

This time around we’re trying to honor my husband’s grandmother who passed away earlier this year. But Beverly is a hard one for me to get on board with – and my husband agrees!

We’ve been trying variations on Beverly but haven’t really stuck on anything as a first or middle name. I’m not a huge fan of B names in general, but I could get on board with an E name. I have liked Erin for a while now, but still not sure it is The Name.

Name Sage: Will Chester Be Teased?

My husband and I are due with our second child in a month. We have a daughter named Eloise Esther (both family names) and we love older names.

My husband’s grandfather’s name is Chester, and so is my husband’s middle name. Chester Reed (again, both family names) is in our top two baby names for our child.

My dilemma is the horrible nickname that Chester often comes with during the school years: Chester the Molester.

My husband was raised to be very proud of his middle name and it doesn’t bother him. I’m just afraid that our son won’t be the same, or it will hurt him more than my husband.

Close friends and family have mentioned this to me, so what the heck is the general public going to say?

It’s been suggested that we use it as a middle name, but our other favorite name is Porter, and Porter Chester doesn’t sound good at all.

What do I do? Do I put my foot down and say no way? Or do I hope that we can raise him to love his namesake and his name?

We are expecting a girl in December. We thought we had the perfect name picked out for our little darling: Easton Brennan LastName. We loved that Easton is not expected for a girl and Brennan is my best friend’s last name. Our son Nash Anderson‘s middle name is my husband’s last name.

Then Kim and Kanye have to go and get pregnant! It’s rumored their boy will be named Easton and I just can’t get over it! Our kids will be born at similar times and I don’t want announce that my new baby has the same name as this celebrity babe.

The problem is we can’t agree on other names! I like Vivi, but it’s so common.

Help! I want something as fun and unique as Nash!

My husband and I are expecting our second child this summer. We thought we had chosen the absolutely perfect name. It’s the name that we have been calling the baby for months. It just felt so right. 

The name is Henry. We already have an Oliver and thought they were both good, strong traditional names.  

So what’s the problem?

My father drowned in a boating accident when I was four. Obviously, I was too young to know the details. Imagine my shock when I told my mother we were naming the baby Henry, and she replied that my father’s accident happened in Frederick Henry Bay.

I am absolutely devastated.

The other name we considered was Charlie, but it doesn’t have the same feeling as Henry did. I keep scrolling through baby name lists and nothing stands out. 

Some say it’s a good sign to use the name. I’m not sure, and yet, we can’t find another name we love as much.

I hope you can help!
