Toddle Along Tuesday—Baby Names

Ohhhh, picking baby names. Something that is fun to do by myself, but not fun to run by the husband.
With both kiddos, I would say that about 99% of the time, Nick shot down any name I suggested. There were times where I thought he only did it just to piss me off...not because he didn't like it.

There was always a reason he didn't like a name...some were valid, others were not! :oP

Ian — Said it reminds him of Enus??? What!? I don't even know what to say to that.
Gretchen — He would always say it in a whiny voice. Not sure why?
Nicole — Thought it would have been like we were trying to name our girl after him.
Hailey — shot down with Hannah but he suddenly liked it when talking about names for #2. He's pretty sold on baby #3 being Hailey if it's a girl but now I'm not to sure about it.
Delaney — I LOVE this name. He pretty much hates it. Not too sure why. I'm gonna work on him with this name though if baby #3 is a girl. :o)

We finally agreed on Hannah with baby #1. It was a classic name that was coming back and we both loved it! Middle name was easy--We used my middle name: Danielle
With baby #2 we had some issues. The first name we picked out was Greyson. We both love the name...we still love the name. But the more we thought about it the more leery we got about naming our son Greyson with having the last name of Loving. I won't go into detail but you can read more about our dilemma HERE and HERE.

Colson was another name that Nick originally shot down before we had agreed on Greyson. But now that Greyson was no longer a contender, I brought up the name again. I found out that Colson meant "son of Nicholas"! It couldn't have been any more perfect and Nick agreed! And we loved that Colson was a bit different but that it still had a solid nickname of Cole. Again, middle name was easy--We used Nick's middle name: David which alos happens to be my dad's name and Nick's grandpa's name.
If we do have a baby #3, it will be hard to find more names that we both love...but I'm sure we will. :o)
