We found boys names so much harder. We had the girls name picked at 8 weeks but didn't settle on a boys name until 19 weeks. DH suggested it out of the blue and my response was 'I don't hate it!'. A few minutes later I knew I loved it. Strangely I have already decided on another boys name, in case we ever need it!

Boys are hard for us.

Boys are way harder. There is just no where near the variety that you have with girls names.

Boys name by far. We had at least 20 girls names picked and have really struggled for boys. Have finally agreed on two. Can't wait for bubs to be born to find out what it will be.

The gender that I'm pregnant with at that time...that's the hardest.
With DD1 we had three boys names picked out, including middle names and we picked them out so easily...DD1 we agreed on 2 names after sitting with a name book on a 24hr flight and we didn't even bother with middle names. DD2 was just as difficult and then DS came along and despite us finding boys names so easy the first two times we had a girls name picked out at 14 weeks (never happened before) and we didn't name DS until he was 3 days old, despite knowing he was a boy from the 20 week scan.

I find it hardest to name whatever to gender of the baby is. Eg found a girls name easy, boys name hard- we had a boy. With each of my girls we always found it easy to come up with a boys name, but a struggle to find girls.

My partner seems to find names generally harder than I do. I have quite a few I like and he struggles to find ones he likes.
I'm not even 19 weeks yet, and we're pretty much agreed on a girl's name, though we have 3 for boys. We both like all three, but have different preferences...so that'll be the hard part. We (hopefully) find out the sex in a week, so I guess we'll see then whether we need to narrow it down or not.

I think girl names are harder and i also look at what their initials would be and think of school years (sounds weird) but we have two boy names so far and one girl name. Have been through alot of names to come up with them.

I think we had problems both ways, with both kids.
DS1, we had trouble picking a boys name, and had our girls name set in stone.
Ds2, we had trouble picking a girls name, because we didn't want to use the name we had chosen for DS1 if he had been a girl. Boys names this time, we had ideas from when we had DS1.
Also, I found with girls names, I just like too many to just choose one, while with boys names, I just can't find one that I like.
