I will start by saying that these have changed so much over time and I’m sure they will continue to change until we find that name that just fits perfectly for our little babe. I am also going to say that a lot of these names are common and it’s impossible to find an original name these days. I’m not the type that cares if someone picks the same name I like. I feel like people only get mad if they said the name first, but we have to remember that just because someone says it first doesn’t mean we have to love it any less. These names are in no particular order, just random. I’m only going to give 5 of each.
Mackenize- I honeslty don’t know why I love this name. I just think it’s really pretty and I love the nickname Kenzie, while Cary likes the nickname Mack. Soooo that’s a struggle.
Peyton- I love unisex names. I just think they are cool and unique and I love the way Peyton Gaskell sounds!
Rowan- I know many will say this is more of a boy name, but I love it as a girl name. I just imagine my little Ro Ro running around!! Plus I love a good Irish name. After all, that’s why we picked Teagan!
Charlotte- This is super popular which is what makes me not like it as much as some of the others but I just think it’s so beautiful, classic and feminine. Cary loves the nickname, “Charlie”.
Everly- This is another one I don’t know why I love but I remember hearing it a few years ago and just loving it. Another beautiful, feminine name.
Beau/Bowen- Cary and I both love this name. I just think it’s a great, strong, manly name. Not much else to why, no special story. We just love it.
Hunter- This is somewhat of a family name on my side. My parents tried for a few years to have another child but my mom started going through menopause in her mid to late thirties so she had several miscarriages. If they ever had a boy, they said his name would have been Hunter and I think that’s something really special to honor.
Declan- This is more of my pick. I love it again because it’s an Irish name. It means “man of prayer” or “full of goodness” and I think that is what I would want a son to be.
Owen- This is a Cary pick but I actually love it. I think it’s such a sweet little boy name but also a great man name too!
Colt/Tripp- These are both Cary picks that can’t decide which he likes better. He loves the name Colt from the Three Ninjas movie haha! I think it’s cute and southern sounding name. Cary is a Texan by way of Louisiana so it just seems right to have a southern name. And he has no idea why he likes Tripp besides the fact that it sounds “cool”.
