The Long List of Baby Names
My husband and I have been together for almost 10 years and you better believe the day I knew he was the one I also started a list of baby names. I wasn’t one of those people that’s been set on a name since I was 10 or anything like that but I wanted something creative and that I would still love years down the road.
As the years went by, the list grew longer and longer. I would hear a name I liked and just add it to the list. Each time I got pregnant the list was edited but there’s been a steady chunk that stuck around for the lifespan of our childbearing years. Trust me, my husband veto’d several of them but there were some I couldn’t bare to remove in hopes he’d come around. He’s pretty firm in his word so I don’t think that happened with any of them. Each time I presented our current children’s names it was without hesitation that he liked them.
I think I can 100% say that we are done having kids, or at least that I’m done birthing them, so sharing the list is my pleasure.
BOYS: Lennon, Atticus, Theodore, Calvin, Felix, Callahan, Houston, Harrington, Lincoln, Asher, Oscar, Archie, Oakley, Leo, Nixon, Scout, Crawford, Hawkins, Finnegan, Milo, Behr, Winston, Truman and Steele
GIRLS: Harlow (this was our girl name for each of the boys), Lennon, Margot, Collins, Elodie, Maisie, Harriet, Eloise, Francie, Greta, Sutton, Holland, Ruby, Willow, Wren, Essie and Ivy
Let me know if any of these are on your list? Are you pregnant and still trying to decide?
