Thanks ladies! Still trying to be okay with not honoring my grandmothers, although they would be fine with it I am sure. Using family names is more of a southern tradition which is where we live...

I took your advice and previous poll results to come up with a more narrowed-down list of names. All of these names except Rosalie are family names taken from our grandmothers Helen Mildred, Merle...
Last name is Melton and siblings are big sis Ainsley and little bro Salter.
Poll: Baby girl name poll
Here is a poll that mixes some family names/family name variations and some non-family names I am considering approaching DH with to see if he likes anything. Would love some feedback!

No, definitely no offense taken. Thank you for the compliment! DH did not like Ainsley when I mentioned it during my 2nd trimester. He nixed it immediately. But when I brought it back up while I was...

I didn't mean to suggest that the variations people were recommending were creative spellings. I realize they are not. I simply meant to make the point that 6 years ago I may have preferred Adalynn...

You know, I think my style has changed over the years. With our first, Ainsley, I just really wanted to find a name I thought was pretty and not old-fashioned. That was 6 years ago. I am from Ohio...

DH and I found out this morning we are having a girl in October! We cannot agree on names. He suggested Sarah, saying he could "live with it" but I have personal reasons from a negative time in my...

Thank you all so much for your suggestions! So many great options! DH and I have a lot to talk about - I think he feels bad that I have been so stressed about this so he might be more open to...

I just can't seem to find any name that I love for a girl. We are due in October and are not finding out the gender. Our DD is named Ainsley and DS is named Salter. We live in the south where using...

Yes I have gone WAAAYYYY back in both of our family trees. I have an account on ancestry.com and had gotten into family history a few years back. We are not connected with the Kincaid's in St....

Francesca would also be a connection to my grandfather Frank who I loved dearly and died of cancer shortly before our first daughter (his first great-grandchild) was born. Not sure how DH will feel...

And Rose was a great aunt of mine who I didn't even know but I thought it could be used as a middle name since my mom knew her. Catherine is my best friend's name and I've always liked that as a...

The family names that we feel most connected to because they belong to parents or grandparents are:
1. Helen - my grandmother and great grandmother. Maiden names York and Jump - not usable.

I am really trying to figure out a way to use a family name for our daughter. I am feeling the pressure from DH's family to use any family name from either side since that is what everyone in their...
So I have been trying to think of a way to use 1 or both of my grandmothers' names to name our daughter (if that's what we are having in October - we are not finding out). The problem is I just am...
Unfortunately other relatives have already taken the usable family names. DH and I have searched both family trees and the only surnames left are Carr, Butch, Jump, Weaver (which we don't like),...

We actually know kids named Carrigan and Sutton so unfortunately those are out. They are great names, though!
We live in the south where a lot of people use surnames for 1st names. What are your favorite surnames for first names for boys (that are not already commonly used)? Names we cannot use because...
We live in the south where a lot of people use surnames for 1st names. I have several I like for a boy but am struggling to find girl names. What are your favorite surnames for first names for girls...
Thanks so much! I actually really like the surnames for 1st names - I have been looking up surnames, actually. I just want to avoid really popular names and double names. I also don't mind names...
@cengel73 - My daughter's name is Ainsley! We love it! I thought Ainsley and Everleigh would be cute together!

DH and I are expecting our 3rd child this fall and are not finding out what we're having. We live in the south where uncommon names are common - lots of last names for first names, double...
DH and I are expecting our 3rd child this fall. We have decided not to find out what we are having, which is probably a mistake since we are completely stumped on names for a girl OR a boy! ...
