(I know we have the "Names you didn't use" thread, but I thought it'd be okay to start just a general one.)

I'm starting to think about names already and me and the Mr. have already vetoed some!
So far I like: Mila and Lexi
Roxy and Moxie got vetoed. I have a few boy ones but I can't remember them right now! So what's on your list?

we're going with milo. it was a name we considered when we had felix, and there were only a few other names we considered this time around. the list of girls names i love is a mile long, but there's only ever been a handful of boy names that both the hubs and i can agree on.

Dorothy for a girl. Dorothy Elizabeth or Dorothy Jane

Owen or Patrick for a boy. Middle name Daniel or Jonathan.

I like Milo! And I know a sweet little Dorothy. It's a pretty rare name over here.

Ha. Looks like there might be a bunch of new Milos! When we first started dating we said if we ever have a boy we'll name him Milo. We recently decided that we're using Ada Elizabeth for a girl. I was going back and forth with Ada but Elizabeth is the name of my grandma who just passed away and I really love the names together.

Conversations like these always make me wonder -- what are some good gender-neutral names?

Hmmm, I don't know very many, except boy names that have become commonly used for girls too. Like Jordan and Brady.

I hear you!

The reason the Emperor is named Grey is that it was literally the ONLY boy's name we could agree on.

(Well, that and it's a totally awesome name.)

Ada is a wonderful name. Always makes me think of Ada Lovelace.

I really cannot think of many names that are widely accepted as gender neutral. It seems like once too many girls have been given a stereotypically male name it just becomes feminine and not neutral (according to the general population). And, heaven forbid you try giving a boy a female name. I even seen people start labeling Riley a girls name when it seems like it's been wildly popular with both genders in recent years.

Some names I like to think go both ways:
Frances
Jules
Sam
Leslie (though I don't much care for the name either way)
Riley
Rowan
Cory

I'm not having kids, so my life's mission is to convince someone to name their daughter Flannery Georgia.

I've wondered this for awhile, but for some reason haven't asked: is Milo pronounce Mee-Low or My-Low?

My friends named their son Battle Drake and I always thought that was awesome. Battle Drake Jones. I dunno, I think it's cool!

I've always liked the name Devon for a girl, and I think that can also be a gender neutral name?

Chris
Gene/Jean
Tony/i
And of course, Sue.

My high-school English and her husband were Terry and Terry!

Guys, I'm afraid to tell you my names because I am afraid you will steal them.

I REALLY like Flannery. If my theoretical next one is also a girl, I'm going to try that name out on my partner!

I know a couple who are Kelly and Kelly. So strange.

I'm kind of a major name nerd, so despite not having kids yet I have definitely thought about names.
Girls: Penelope, Matilda, Eleanor, Eloise, Scarlet, Amelia, Caroline, Margaret, Alice, & Madeleine.
Boys: Theodore, Henry, Oliver, Milo, Jude, Charles, William, Lucas, Gabriel, & Desmond.

I am having a really hard time coming up with boy names. The only one my partner and I have decided on is Jordan, but I kinda don't like it anymore only because it's also the name of my first boyfriend and it seems weird. I also have this thing where I don't want our baby to have the same name of anyone we know...

For girls I like, Khloe and Zoe which the man agrees with. I kind of like the name FInleigh although that was my cats name so I don't think he will go for that.

If we have a girl I think we are going to call her Margaret after my Grandma.
