I'm fussy with names.
Working in childcare, some names just get vetoed without consideration because of certain behaviors from certain children.
Naming ds was a nightmare. We had about 8 girls names we couldn't decide on, and no boys names. Df wanted to call him ... Luke skywalker.
I wanted something uncommon, that didn't remind me of something, that went with dfs last name (which is a common classic unisex first name) I didn't want a double barreled name like "william washington" or "alisha alabama"....sorry for the american names lol
For girls atm, I like cleo, dakota, astrid, ashlyn, harper... Theres a few more I've forgotten. I think our future dd will be astrid christine. Christine after my mum. Df likes autumn as a name.... I don't I love grace, rose and paige as middle names.
For boys, I liked deklan but df says no way.... I honestly can't think of a boys name I like. We had a list of about 4 names we were ok with going into hospital. Being wheeled to theatre for my emergency csect df kept asking if we would name bubs...
My biggest fear was regretting the name we chose. as a result. Ds was born 9.55am, we discussed it and around dinner decided, but we didn't tell anyone until the next morning. Once I woke up and still liked the name, we told everyone.

At the moment I really love Harlow or Summer for a girl.
I so don't think me and hubby will ever agree - he just doesn't like anything. No thats a lie - he has come up with the very helpful Wilbur (wth?!) or has managed to come up with a mash up of our names to produce a truly awful awful awful monikor - I can't say it without giving our names away (and I'm trying to stay anon on here lol) but its something along the lines of 'Be-ary' OMG! You cannot do that to a child! LOL
There are loads I love, will just have to see when we get to that stage what I can wear hubby down on lol. We were going to be really really sad and follow a naming initial rule, as both mine and hubby's initials spell (very short!) words, as we have the same middle intial too, so were thinking of carrying that on with the kiddies (god that is so sad isn't it? Poor children!). I do have to put my family name in our first born, as my brother can't continue the family line on, and otherwise it will be lost to history but think we will make it a second middle name so its only for the birth certificate type thing.
Teaching Primary, I also am quite aware of giving them something they can actually spell and read and write in the early years of school too, so nothing too long or that doesn't phonetically sound as its spelt lol (trying to be nice to the teacher as well there!), which isn't something I used to think about at all - but I'm SO over trying to spell completely bizarro spellings of names, its just so horrid when the child and/or parents have a massive go at you for getting it wrong! ARGH!
But at the moment I'm just focussing on perhaps getting an OPK to turn, and/or some sensible temps, and then a lovely HPT to turn I'll worry about names as they wheel me into delivery lol - don't want to tempt fate too much (says the woman with a cot and pram in her nursery already - there's a really really good reason for that though!)
CD18 - let the TWW begin!!!
Yes, the TWW should be known as the mental TW marathon! Last time I had symptoms at 7dpo - sooo going to be disappointed if not utd...but so hopeful right now!!!
