If you’ve seen our gender reveal video (you can find it here) you will know that we are expecting a baby boy.
We do of course, already have a daughter, Lily-Rose so will now have ‘one of each’ which is pretty cool. I’m excited to see the similarities and differences between our two kids as they grow up.
We’ve had this baby’s name picked out for ages now – literally as soon as we found out what we were having we chose his name. Well Scott chose his name and thankfully I love it too!
Just in case you don’t already know – our baby boy is going to be called Theo.
Theo is our miracle baby after a (long) 7 year wait, and losses in that time. He’s likely to also be our last baby too – the idea of going through the same process of infertility and trying to conceive again is not something that appeals!
And so, that being the case, I figured it’d be fun to share our ‘other’ baby names – the baby girl names I love but won’t be using.
10 Baby Girl Names I love (but won’t be using)
Ok so I love this name but we probably wouldn’t have used it simply because Scott isn’t keen (something about a scary beast in Final Fantasy games he played as a kid *eye roll*).
I love this Nordic name and it’s strong roots in Viking mythology and Scotland. It’s growing in popularity but is still really unique.
Luna means Moon in Latin and as a family we have a love of wolves and the moon in general (yeah weird I know). It is of course, also a name from the Harry Potter series of books – which are my favourites.
Randomly it was also the name of the restaurant where Scott and I had our first date so I feel like it’s extra special.
It’s a little more traditional than the other girls names I love but it’s a name from one of my favourite books growing up. Alice is a name of Germanic origin and it means ‘noble’. I think it goes really nicely with Lily-Rose too.
A shortened version of the name Indiana (which I absolutely love) – it’s feminine but strong too.
We both really like floral names – which you may have guessed by the fact that our daughter is called Lily-Rose! I love the name Ivy but as my sister pointed out it sounds completely daft with our surname so we wouldn’t use it.
Leia means Meadow which is really pretty but we obviously would have picked it for it’s Star Wars association as Scott is a big fan!
When we first got together Scott and I used to love watching One Tree Hill – Peyton was the name of one of the characters from that programme.
It’s quite an American sounding name but I do love it and think it’s quite rare in the UK.
We also really love the name Willow but it’s the name of Lily’s best friend (and her best friend’s sister is called Lilly!) so we wouldn’t use it *ok well Scott totally still would but he’s weird ha*
Do you like any of the names we loved?
Which one would you pick?
