I have a girls name I love but DH is not sure. Mackenzie. I just love it.

I am curious what the general opinions on it are? So please ladies, give me your honest opinions.

Trust me, when I love a name, even people not liking it doesn't turn me off original.gif I just like to know thoughts and opinions.


Honestly its not my taste but its not awful or anything.

Ive never met a Mackenzie so its something different, strong name.

If you like it use it.

i met a girl in NYC called Mackenzie, Mack for her nickname

i love it, its strong and unique and has heaps of character.

my babys father isnt in the picture so i get to choose the name all by myself which is a bonus.

as far as i know im having a girl so im thinking:

Marley Kate
Aurora Kate

back up names if im surprised by a boy are:

Hunter or Jackson with middle names John McEwen in either order.

But the sonographer is pretty sure its a girl...she showed me the labial folds haha

Thanks Ladies on your opinions original.gif

KiwiMel - I love strong names too and considering my babies are never small and petite (both over 4kg), I think strong names suit them.

genevievesmum - I love the name Genevieve! Estelle is a classic name and I think it suits Genevieve very well. I am not a fan of the name Jude but that is simply because I am not a fan of 1 syllable names. It is a good name.

Havent thought about it yet! only just digesting the news. But we came up with heaps of possible girl names with DD, boy names were so much harder.

I love the name Micah too but DH doesnt like it.

I really like Ollie and Luca too but have friends with sons with both of those names. It gets harder as you get to know more kids being born sad.gif

Girls names we liked Scarlett and I also like Samara, maybe Skye (all S names huh?!)
I really liked Leela but a friends daughter is called that.  Hmmm

Motherwolf: I Love marley for a girl! happy.gif

and whoever suggested Maia, thanks for mentioning it, we thought of it for DD but I had forgot original.gif

DH and I haven't really spoken about names since we got our BFP but have previously.

For a girl I love 'Rhylea' and have for ages. Others I like: Avery, Addison, Olivia or Madeline

And I was looking through baby names just now and came across 'Xavier' which means 'new house'. We've mentioned the name in discussion before but the meaning is very relevant now as we conceived our 1st month living in our new home (just built).

Other boys names I like are Elliot (family name), Emmett, and Patrick. The only problem I see with these are they're hard to shorten, or I don't like the shortening.

Also Hugo and Theodore (Theo) grab me

Have people started suggesting names to you yet?

My mum is so excited and keeps suggesting names bless her.

Her front runner is Sheila for a girl, I think we have different tastes in names!

Retro-mumma: we havnt told anyone yet but I'm sure suggestions will come flooding in when we do. I was guilty of giving suggestions to my sister so I'm sure she'll have some for me wink.gif
and Sheila... Yeah not my cup of tea either

Question for all.....I really like the name Ava and have liked it for a few years now.  DH's cousin had a baby mid last year and they called their daughter Eva.  So my question is, if we have a girl, would it be wrong to call ours Ava?

I like Luca, for all the Luca lovers out there. Don't think it's bad to name a child the same name as a pet - and I don't think the name Ava is too close to Eva.


I like Nicolai and Anna for names. But knowing Anna is pretty popular, my second choice would be Cora. (only have known 2 Cora's ever which is probably the reason I like it).

Natalie: I think Ava would be fine! If you love it you should use it original.gif
