@periwinklebee: we are!! We found out the week before last. So excited! Hope you are doing well!
Thanks for all the suggestions, ladies! Some of these are already on my list and it’s great to see lots of other ideas. For some reason this seems much harder the second time around!

I love Aiden and my husband loves Rhys but we are having a girl and for a classic William is always on my list.

@wrkbrk: Cooper was on our short list It was DH's grandfather's name.
@Ajsmommy: I still wish DH would go along with Charlie.
I haven't had a boys list since I met DH (since he's a junior and called dibs). But I've always liked the name Parker, and really liked Fintan (but my brother used it for my godson Finn)
@Mrs. Tiger: thank you! Hope your sweet boys are doing well!
@MaryM: It's a good one! Easy to pronounce and spell but not overly common!

@gilmoregirl: thank you! And I love those two names, one is my baby brother! Hope you are well!
@periwinklebee: yay! Glad to hear things are still going smoothly. I’m 16 weeks so ten weeks behind you!
So many great names, thanks everyone!
@jhd: So exciting to be in the second tri! Hope that the yuckier symptoms have subsided for you, and congrats again on your little guy, your update makes me so, so happy
@MaryM: I just love Charlie. So so cute, IMO. and Parker is my maiden name!!! So I love that too!!
My aunt actually married a Parker and growing up it confused everyone, they thought he was the one that was blood related to me.. LOL..

@gilmoregirl: Those are the only two boy names DH and I can agree on! Our girl list is about ten names long but boy names stump us.

Right now we both like Jonah the most, and Abe (Abraham) is also in the running. We tend to lean more towards biblical names/themes.
My husbands absolute favorite is Jordan, which I do like a lot but DH’s best friend has a daughter named Jordyn. He already asked them if they’d care (when I wasn't around) and they said absolutely 100% not because it’s a boy and we’d spell it differently and they’d actually think it was kinda cool to both have one. But I feel weird using it.
@jhd: we are pretty good! Hope you are feeling ok. Does T know about the baby yet? B nicknamed his brother "mail truck" while I was pregnant and the nickname stuck around for a while. So I guess you can add that to the list too
@skinnycow: good taste! I was the opposite in that there were lots of girls names I liked but none that I LOVED. It was easier for me to choose boy names I loved but I liked fewer. In the end, we went to the hospital with a list of top contenders each time and waited to see what felt right.
@gilmoregirl: lol at mail truck! T suggested Owlette the other day. He got to watch PJ Masks for the first time when it came to Netflix last week. I’m feeling somewhat better now that I’m in the second tri and even though I have felt bad at times, it’s been nothing like the all day sickness I had with T!
