Dear Poll: Do You Keep a List of Future Baby Names?

Even if you're single, it's not uncommon to keep a list of names for the kids you might have someday. I know plenty of women and even many men who do this, so be honest: Do you have a baby-name list stashed away somewhere?

I've kept a names list in my head since I was pretty young, it's fun to see how my tastes have changed. it's also a good way to tell if the name is just a phase or if it's something you will like for a long time.

I have ideas that float around in my head, but nothing written down.

Oh yeah. I have been doing that since i was very young. I like different names every year. So by the time i have kids i will probably like something completely different then the name i am hooked on now, which is Mia.

I want Eva and William. My partner wants Ava and Jack. We've agreed on Ava, but I'd never call my son Jack, I just don't like the name at all. He thinks William is pretentious.

Girl - Isabella Crispin (mom's middle name) Boy - Aidan John (dad's name) I've had these names picked out for years and I absolutely detest the fact that they are both the top baby names for 2008. When I picked them out they were rare. By the time I actually have kids every girl and boy will have these names. So my back ups: Girl - Sophie deLaura (my grandma's and my middle name: means "of Laura" in French, which is my great-grandma's name and my mom's name), Giselle, Imogen, Olivia, Addison Boy - Max, Benjamin, Bradley, Noah Obviously I've thought about this a bit...

Oh yes. I loooove Irish, Gaelic, and Welsh names. But my favorite name for a girl is Kyle. I know I'm weird but ever since I watched some season of ANTM with the model named Kyle I've wanted to name my future daughter that.

Well, I'm pregnant, so yes! But I didn't really have a list before then. I've loved the name Stella for a long time, but that's about it. I hear of other names and think, "oh, that's cute," but I don't keep track of them.

No not at all. If I have a kid I hope either the dude names it or his and my mom can get together and name it. I couldn't care less!

Sure do! My husband and I picked out one girl's name and one boy's name already... we'll see what happens!

I don't make lists about that kind of stuff that's far away. However, if I had a boy, his name WILL be (BF and I decided) James. If I have a girl, I love the names Brooke, Jackie, Kira, and...that's it, I guess. I don't tend to favor girls names, though I would love a girl some day.

lol never though about naming babies though I guess I'll go with something unique that reflects all my children heritage like my parents did. I hope it works out better than the way mine came out :lol: Most people think my parents are hippies instead of staunch military, once they hear my full name. But I do like the name Amelia, it's my grandmother's and I adore her so I would love to name a daughter after her. I also like Capucine and my mom's name Sabine and my boyfriend like Mitsuko and Yuriko for girls and Yori and Akira for boys so we'll see when we actually do have children.

I was just reading about baby names. I have a journal which I add names to almost daily. My most recent idea is, "Gaea" pronounced like Gia, short from Pangaea, greek for "the earth". Besides that I have names like Nico, Jude, Poet etc. at the top. My almost 5 m. old is Ava Jolie Isabel Morrison. The next baby, which I'm positive will be a boy is most likely going to be Poet Justice Morrison.Ode to his gpa. I LOVE thinking of baby names!
