Help Me Name My Baby!

Recommended Posts

We've pretty much settled on a first name for our baby girl that's coming, but we're unsure of which middle name to use... Our last name is Guhl, so we've had a hard time picking a name since A names, L names, and G names are out (AAG, ALG, AGG).

Here's our list... Pick your favorite and let me know why.

Annika Rose Guhl

Annika Marie Guhl (my middle name, my initials)

Annika Emily Guhl

Annika Emmy Guhl

Annika Evie Guhl

Annika Mackenzie Guhl

Annika Piper Guhl

Annika Mae Guhl

Annika Sierra Guhl

Annika Cadence Guhl

Annika Imogen Guhl (for my MIL, Jean)

Annika Jordin Guhl

Annika Willow Guhl (for my FIL, William)

Annika Ivy Guhl (my top 3, our best friend's middle name)

Annika Eden Guhl (my top 3)

Annika Eva Guhl (my top 3)

Well, it's a tie for me- either Annika Rose Guhl or Annika Elise Guhl. What beautiful names. Both of them seem to flow very gracefully across the tongue. I also like the fact that your daughter will not have to endure weird spellings of her middle name, like Roze or Rowze or whatever. I know I rant entirely too much, but as a teacher I can't for the life of me figure out why people take perfectly common names and murder them with bizarre spellings. People forever misspell the kids' names, and the poor kids will have to endure this for the rest of their lives.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Guhlia....

This is going to hard to decide! They are a good names!!! It's hard to choose! The only way we decided on a name was b/c I was having Braxton-Hicks contractions from 5 months on....so we named our little guy Braxton!LOL

Teacher....I still kick my self for giving my son two middle name....his dad's 1st name and my last are his middle names....his intials are BDTP!!! Try saying that three times fast.

So I know why you're saying no A,L and G middle names!!!

With total rejection of the name "Goose Gulia," my bet is that when you see her for the first time you will know who she is to be. Happy days ahead for you. Best wishes to you and the grand big sister. :)

My wife and I met rock climbing, and enjoy kayaking, skiing etc. We seriously want to name our kids after Rivers or Mountains. (Kern, Whitney, places that are special to us)

We not so seriously want to give our 1st kid the middle name "danger". Danger is his/her middle name!

I think my mom would kill me.

Ok, I have narrowed the list down a little after discussing some of your suggestions with my husband. It's amazing the discoveries you make when you say a certain name over and over again. I deleted a few of the options in the original post because we decided they didn't flow right or we just decided we didn't like them as much as we thought we did.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Keep 'em coming! I really want to have the name picked out by the time we have the nursery done so that we can personalize little things for her and start the baby book.

Angie, I like the way Annika Marie sounds best and also because it is your middle name.

My grandmother's name was Imogene. You don't hear that too often!

I'm not suggesting this for your baby, and I am far too old to have a baby myself, but if I weren't, I would name my baby Lily. I don't know why exactly, but I think it's pretty. I have a student named Journey, and I like that one, too.

We have blue carpet in the nursery, so we're doing a floral theme. Target sells the set, it's pink, cream, and blue with vintage floral patterns on it. Very pretty and feminine.

I'm glad you went with that set, Angie. I thought it was very pretty :D
