Baby Names...HELP!!!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

In 4 weeks we will find out if Baby Moore is a boy or girl!!! I don't know how my parents or any parents wait until the birth to find out the sex of a child.  We have been talking about this since the day we found out.  I can't wait to start buying for a little girl or boy.  Matt wants a boy, nothing against girls, but he wants our other children to have a big brother.  Me, I don't really care.  I was a big sister, and I think I did one heck of a job at that, but ask my brother he may tell you otherwise.  Whatever it is, we just want to to be healthy!  

We are now working on the name game.  We have three names that we have been thinking about theses past 12 weeks. I have to say that I am very jealous of those ladies who have great maiden names.  You know the ones that they can use as their child's first or middle name? Cousins, well their isn't much you can do with that!  

Boy Names
Brady Allen Moore-I've had this name picked out forever.  Brady really has no significance, but Allen was Poppy's, my dad, and my brother's middle name.  I loved this name up until the moment that Matt pointed out that his initials would be BAM, and Matt would call him BAM BAM.  Oh NO!!!!  I will not have a child who everyone calls BAM BAM.  So I have now been turned away from this name but only for this reason.  Thank you, Matt. 

Hayes Morgan Moore-This is my favorite! Hayes is a very old name, not very common, and it sounds good.  It comes from one of my best friends, David Hayes.  David & I were best friends from 6th grade all the way through college.  He is practically my other little brother.  Our families consider each other as part of each other's extended family.  Morgan is Matt's middle name, so it's very special! Hayes Moore-sounds like a country singer right? Well maybe he'll take after his father & be musically inclined.  

HELP-what is your opinion??!?!?!

Girl Names
We only have one girl name picked out, and now I'm questioning it, but hear me out.

Emma Grace Moore-BEAUTIFUL!  I have loved the name Emma forever!  My great aunt's name was Emma, so it is a family name.  However, Emma has been the most popular name for the past 3 years.  In 1983, the most popular name was Ashley.  Yep, you guessed it, I graduated with 5 Ashley's in my class.  At one time growing up, I went by my middle name.  I don't want to have to do that to my child, but then again I think, it's a family name, which makes it okay.  Grace is my sister in law's name, and whether we go with Emma or another first name Grace will be the middle name of our little girl.  

What are your thoughts?!?! Help us pick out a name for our little one!

  1. I love those names!! It is always easier for me to come up with boys names instead of girl's names. What if you named him Allen Brady Moore, but you call him Brady? So you the initials would be ABA instead of BAM. :-)

    I love Hayes such a cool name. Another cool name I heard for a boy was Vaughn or Van. I love those names too.

    For a girl I always had a hard time, but some unique names I have heard recently are Tinsley or Tinley. I think they were cute and very different.

    I can't wait to find out you are having! Please post some pics of your baby bump!
