4. Michael
5. Zachary
6. Benjamin
7. Nicklaus
8. Bree
9. Anya
10. Anna
11. Ella

13. Elizabeth

Can you guess which names we've chosen? What names do you like?

Go to and make your own list!!

Those are all beautiful names. We considered Anya for our oldest daughter, too, but went with Ariana.

Nathaniel is one of my fave boys names! I love the sound of it!

Happy TT!

I like Elizabeth for a girl (obviously). ;)

For a boy, I've always liked Benjamin.

soleil said...

I've never read your blog before but I'm guessing you'll have a boy! :)

From your list I like Nathaniel, Michael, Zachary, Benjamin, Bree, Anna, & Elizabeth.

Jacob, Ella and Katelynn are too common for my taste.

Good luck at your ultrasound next week! I hope the baby isn't shy!

i must confess said...

I like Zachary...and Hannah :) rhymes with Anna

Wani said...

My first son is named Nathaniel. Good strong name! I also like Jacob, and Elizabeth.
Thanks for stopping by Wani's World! I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't finish things!

Jacob, and Katelynn are so nice

Dawn said...

Those are all great names. My son's name is Joshua, but I had wanted to name him Zachary. My hubby wouldn't go for it. I don't know what his problem was.

I absolutely adore Ella for a little girl, and I think it would be too cute paired with Elizabeth. Ella Elizabeth.

Hmmmm, now I am curious what you have picked. I'll have to drop back by soon. :-)

Carrie said...

Nathaniel has always been my favorite boy name. And I don't have one favorite girl name. There are just too many I like.
Can't wait for the results of the ultrasound next week!

In lieu of the fact that I'm reading the Twilight series, I'd have to pull for Jacob, one of the characters.
