Top Baby Names: *Not Preggers

Spearmint Baby is doing a blog hop that I just had to participate in.
I am not preggers, but love playing around with my kiddos future names!

When Gabriel and I were dating, I remember vividly eating dinner at BJ's in Dallas, and writing our baby names out on a napkin.  It was such a fun night, and we luckily/oddly agree on all of our names (except a new ONE I recently added to the list)!  I kept the napkin forever, and then lost it in the move :(  

We still have our favorite first and middle names picked out, but I am convinced that I am not going to share the name until the punkin in born .... who knows though!

Favorite Girl Names
1.  Brooklynn
2.  Sada
3.  Tatum

Favorite Boy Names
1.  Prescott 
2.  Jameson 
3.  Graham

Picking a name is so hard especially when SOOO many people have input about it.

Plus, what do you put with a Smith!!  It has to be pretty unique, I think!

What are your favorite names?

Chardonnay said...

♥Aubrey said...

My favorite names i'm a little partial too as they are MY kids names: Alexis Rae & Cole Tyler
{P.S. Great names you've got there}

Jane said...

Love the name Graham. I grew up on Graham Ave and have never thought of it as a baby name. But i love it!

Arrie said...

I love all of those sister!

Nicole-Lynn said...

I love Cole, Trevor, and Mason for boys! And for a girl I really love Ava!

Karen said...

Beautiful names! Our neighbor has a little girl named Brooklynn and she is absolutely precious. I love the name Jillian, however, that is probably what we are naming our daughter in 15 weeks :) Cute post!

Brian and I both LOVE brooklyn. and i LOVE graham. names are so fun :)

Lyr said...

I really like Brooklynn!! Very cute!

holly-lynn said...

I looove Jameson. My hubs in James, & that would be a perfect way to honor is name, but mix it up a little bit! Brooklyn & Bronx have always been favorites for me too!

Heather said...

Cute names!!

Oddly Derek and I (though we aren't even married yet) have already picked our kids names. LOL.

Girl: Taylor Sam
Boy: Aaden James

It will make it easy come baby time.

Sweet Simplicity said...

I can't wait to see what people say on here! You have picked out some great names. I always have trouble picking out boy names, but I have an endless supply of girl names. I am on a 2 name kick right now like Emma Kate.

The Holmes said...

I love all the names you have listed!

I think it's better to keep the names you and your hubby have chosen a secret until the baby is born. Then no one has a say in it, except you guys!!!

Mrs. Dimple said...

I absolutely love thinking about and talking about baby names! However, my hubby and I don't agree on any of them! Haha! We do agree that we are going to wait to tell everyone and even decide on a name until the baby is born. Some of my favs are:
GIRL: Harper, Amelia
BOY: Morgan

Oh my word! I had no idea you were expecting!! That's so exciting!!! I like all the names that have been thrown out there.. happy name hunting!

Jennifer said...

We are naming our daughter Brooklyn too!!!!! Well, if we have a daughter. I posted about it a few months ago. haha!

Mrs. Potts said...

So cute -
Mr. Potts and I aren't having children but if we were they would be:
Girl: Katherine Ann
Boy: Preston Michael or Preston Jacob

I lean away from Preston Michael because then his initials would be PMP & knowing Mr. Potts he'd call him PIMP. *sigh* boys

sarah said...

I have my names but they are super secretive until I have a kid.

But man, naming a baby is soo complicated. You have to think of things the initials might spell or ways they could be made fun of. Too much pressure.

Love Brooklyn...was my sister's name. :)
I am IN LOVE with the name Mason, but my boyfriend really dislikes it.

katie + bret said...

Such fun little names! How great you guys agree. Bret and I agree on ONE name. Count them, ONE.

So, that being said, we are having a BOY and his name will be JUDE. Which I LOVE!

If we have a girl, I am naming her Olivia and B can just deal. I pushed her through my Britney for the love.

Elliott and Cherry Wood said...

precious names! and I was secretly hoping this meant you were preggers :) I'm obviously biased to the name Lofton Rains for a little boy right now--and we were going to name a little girl Layla Reese. and I just realized that both of those initials would have been the same--weird.

Sole Matters said...

I like classic last names as first names. like, dawson or ...well right now i cant think of another example. haha

my name is vonda and i HATED it with a passion when i was growing up. now, i am thankful that im not another ashley, jessica, or ann. (no offense if you are). people typically remember my name after meeting me because i usually have to say it at least two times! haha

i totally agree with sarah, naming a baby is soo complicated. You have to think of things the initials might spell or ways they could be made fun of. Too much pressure. (my initials are hello VD. pretty sure my parents didnt think about that when they were picking out names.)

Ms. Case said...

Graham is one of my all time favs for a boy! So when you are prego with a him that! He'll be a stud for sure :)

SassyCassie said...

I love the name Tatum!

a H.I.T. said...

Husby and I keep our favorite names under lock and key. We shared our favorite girl name once and friends of ours used it to name their baby. First and middle! We were shocked and flattered at the same time.

Christa said...

Too cute!

For a girl I like Ava! And for a boy I like Hudson!

Anonymous said...

Cute names!

Mommy Dear said...


Oh wait---I already named my kids those names!
I guess I'm biased, but I really, really love those names!

Fun post!

the tichenor family said...

Love your name choices... maybe we can have Tatum's together!! :)

Kelly said...

i love making the "potential baby name list." it gets me excited for the {very} future!

awesome names you have lined up!!

Susan said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the sweet comment about Sydney. I'm now following your blog :). btw, I love your header. I love your name choices... especially the name Brooklynn!!

Jules said...

I am so glad I found your blog! Thank you for stopping by mine. I am following you now :)

I really like the name Brooklynn for a girl. So cute!

For a girl, I love Kelsey, Madison and Taylor. For a boy, I like Justin, Ethan and Christopher.

THE Stephanie said...

Kelsey, I'm totally laughing b/c I just KNEW that my email address as attached to my comments!!! Sure enough, it wasn't (as and the rest of the blogging world knew!).

BUT, I went to reply to your email (comment) and your email wasn't attached to your comment either. (it was no-reply) LOL.

This is so funny to me... THANKS for letting me know about my email!!

SaRaHbEtH said...

i'm scared to say my baby names! someone will steal them!

KS said...

LOVE all of your name choices... Tatum is so sweet. And I think Tate would make a cute nickname for a little girl. All of the names I like are completely off in left field...

Brittany and Charlie-Social Butterfly said...

Those are great! Prescott is my fav!

Robin said...

I so understand your angst about naming a child with the last name "Smith". That is why you are married to a Gabe instead of some simple name.

We did not tell ANYONE Gabe's name until after he was born. People are not good at hiding their reactions to names and many will steal them so I kept it under wraps.

All of the names you mentioned are really cute.

Carol said...

What cute names! I love the name Brooklynn!
