Top 2 Tuesday...Names

It is time again for Top 2 Tuesday. This week the theme is Names...particularly baby names. We aren't in NEED to a baby name right now, but it is always fun to think about! We didn't pick Blake William's name until he was about 1 day old. We went in to labor with a few names in mind...but Blake wasn't really even one of them! We were thinking either Benjamin (Ben) or William (Will)....but we love Blake and think that it fits our peanut perfectly!




Top 2 Favorite Names

Here is what I think at the moment...and it changes very frequently! AND, Ryan and I have not really talked about these...so this is just me!!

1.) For a girl I like Chloe. I just think that it is such a cute name....

2.) For a boy I like Max. I have liked this name for a long time...but Ryan's fam had a dog named Max...so can I really name a child the same name as a dog (who is not deceased, by the way)?!

I think that boys names are harder. I love LOTS of girls names and a girl can fit into a "cutesy" name for her entire life. A boy has to have a cute name that grows into a manly name...you know?!?

Now, head on over to Taylor's blog and check out more!

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

I totally agree with you on the girls names vs boys names. There aren't enough cute boy names!

Katie said...

will is one of my brother's names and i LOVE max! i think blake is adorable for your little one - truthfully i didn't do this because i didn't want any of my friends that are close to having babies or are thinking about trying when we are to steal them, ha!

Kristen said...

I totally agree that girls names are WAY easier to choose! I love the name Blake, unfortunatley we alrady have one in the family!

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

blake is a great name! you did good! :o)

Melissa said...

I love the name Max, but it doesn't fit in with my husband's stupid "J" name rule (read about it on my blog if you haven't hahaha). It's such a cute name!

Blair @ Reasonably Swanky said...

Aww, love both names! My friend just named her little boy Maddox and they call him Mad and Max...it's so cute.

No,we woudln't call him Sully. Reminds me too much of Dr Quinn Medicine Woman..haha. We would call him Riggs. I just adore that name but like a 3 syllable (sp?) first name for a boy.

I love your picks! Max and Jack are my 2 favorite boy names. And Chloe is so precious!

Chelsea said...

I think you're good as long as pup Max and babe Max aren't say out in the yard playing... although it may be easier that way, you can yell one name and they'll both come running!

I like those names too!

We had a hard time agreeing on names. I like different names, nothing too common, but not too weird either. My hubby on the other hand likes very common names....BORING!

Amber said...

We picked the same girl's name! :) It is a really cute name!

I love the name Blake and it fits him so well. Max is a cute one too!

Annie said...

i really like both of those names too! both sound great for sibling names for blake :)

Mommyto2 said...

I love William(of course!) and Benjamin is on my list too. My dad had a dog with my name so I always use to tease him that he named me after a dog! Ha!

Constant Family said...

I really like the name Max!

Ann said...

I love Max! And you can totally name a baby the same as a dog. My little girl is Abby and we have a dog named Ali. Gets confusing, but we love the names!

Paige said...

Cute names! Hope you have a great week!

Ashley said...

Beautiful names.
The same name as a family dog. I don't know. That might be a little strange. hehe

alanna said...
