Baby Names!

My thyroid issues are causing me some problems with getting pregnant so, in the meanwhile, I've been occupying my time by daydreaming about all things baby-related. One of my favorite things to think about is baby naming! Since middle school, I've kept running lists of the baby names I like. They've changed (thankfully) over the years but I thought I would start keeping the list on here since this has become a list of the lists I keep.

  • Ada--DH's grandmother's name
  • Amelia
  • Arden
  • Beatrice/Beatrix
  • Brynn/Brenna
  • Camilla
  • Carys
  • Claire
  • Darby--means "free man" and my maiden name is Freeman
  • Della
  • Ellery
  • Evangeline
  • Evelyn---current fave is Mary Evelyn, who would be called M.E.
  • Gemma
  • Hadley
  • Harper--DH both like, but is becoming trendy
  • Hazel
