    I give up on names!

    I'm ready to just be done with this whole process and name this baby #3.
    I'm almost 37 weeks, insanely miserable, and so over names. I can't fall in love with ANYTHING. I've looked at what seems like a million names and I just don't feel like anything is PERFECT. I think my husband is a little fed up with me, too lol. I know that I don't have to decide anything until baby is here (heck we don't even know if it's a boy or a girl so why am I stressing myself out!?) but I feel like I NEED to go into it with some sort of idea, or a list at least, because I don't want to have to feel this frustrated after I give birth. UGH.

    I was absolutely set on Bennett for a boy, but now it doesn't feel like it fits right with Clementine and Estella so I've moved on. To what? Who knows
    I like Seraphina for a girl, my husband recently decided he hates it so that's out too

    I've been absent from nameberry for a few months and so I thought maybe to lift some of the stress I'm feeling about naming this baby, I'd come here and push it on all of you :wink:
    Some fresh suggestions that go with my girls names, or just an encouraging "you aren't crazy" would be wonderful.


    So please help this miserably swollen pregnant mama before I 'splode.

    I've never been pregnant, but from what I can gather - it's completely normal that you're feeling like this - trust me, you're definitely not crazy! Even us non-pregnant name nerds feel like we're out of love with every single name on the planet sometimes. Your daughters have gorgeous names, and I think Bennett fits in nicely with them. However, here are some suggestions that I think would go nicely with Estella and Clementine.

    Marius
    Quentin
    Vincent
    Benoit
    Armand

    First of all, may I just say that I love your children's names? Thanks . You definitely are not crazy- you shouldn't go with a name unless you head over heels adore it. Your little one will help you decide when they are born- you will know what I mean when I say that they have a big personality.

    Personally, I think Bennett sounds wonderful with Estella and Clementine. They are all lovely strong, sturdy, jazzy, vintage / Victorian era sort of names: you have Elizabeth Bennett of Pride and Prejudice, Estella Havisham from Great Expectations, and 'Oh My Darling, Clementine.'

    But if you definitely don't want Bennett for a boy any longer, here are some suggestions (let me know if I am on the right track):

    Boys: Dashiell, Bentley, Barrett, Grey, Hale, Bram, Abraham, Barnaby, John, Remus, Roland, Edmund, Edison, Henry, Abner, Beau, Claude, Clark, Clyde, Otto, Tobias, Andrew, Arthur, Basil, Lemuel, Walter, Rudyard, Calloway, Morris, Gene, Mack, Lionel, August, Amadeus, Claudius, Claudio, Dougal, Roald (ro-ahl), Amias, Adlai, Amos, Peter, Charles, Theodore, Keating, Keaton, Willem / Wilhelm, Lawrence (nn Renny?), Forrest, Louis / Louie, Lewis, Benedict, Emerson, Mateo / Matteo, Frederick, Rafferty, Otis, Milo, Finnian / Phinean, Phineas, Matthias, Thaddeus, Colin, Rafael / Raphael, Sebastian / Sebastien, Bastian / Bastien, Magnus, Mingus, Robert, Clancy, Julius, Bellamy.

    Girls: Serena, Tatiana, Sefarina, Ravenna, Rafaela, Celeste, Celia, Elva, Mercy, Minerva, Athena, Amedea / Amadea, Pearl, Opal, Lavender, Florence, Delphine, Delphina / Delfina, Petra, Hestia, Agnes, Fern, Ferelith, Vesper, Vespera, Lilou, Luna, Lunette, Lunetta, Corinne (co-rinn), Rowenna, Rowena, Francesca, Rosemary, Paloma, Valencia, Valentine, Valentina, Venetia, Verena, Verona, Araminta, Adelie, Adele, Olive, Olympia, Olivette, Dorothy, Dorothea, Allegra, Magdalena, Lorelei, Ursula, Augusta, Zelda, Ginevra, Geneva, Genoa, Silvia, Esmeralda, Dominga, Lula, Lydia, Evangeline, Genevieve, Guinevere, Flora, Fleur, Ines / Inez, Christiana, Belle, Lorena, Winifred, Nola, Ophelia, Rosalie, Rosalind, Rosetta, Marcella, Roksana / Roxana, Roxanne, Zinnia, Amabel, Cordelia, Columba, Thea, Quintina, Octavia, Susannah / Susanna, Georgina, Marietta, Carmela, Sabrina, Sabina, Annabelle, Arabelle, Arabella, Anastasia.

    Let me know if that helped at all.
