Names, Names, Names

Even though I am not yet over my last name obsession, there are a few other names we are thinking of.  Here's a few...

Colby: this was actually a favorite when I was pregnant with C, but once we found out we were having a boy, we didn't really like it any more.  However, we've started really liking it again.  The main problem?  We don't want another C name.  We have C, and our dog's name is, how confusing would the blog posts get :)

          Origin: English
          Meaning: Coal Town

Marshall: this is a name that Hubby suggested one day and we both really like it.  No problems with the name, just not ready to say "It's the one." 

          Origin: French
          Meaning: keeper of the horses

Dean: another name Hubby suggested, and I really like, but do we like it enough for our child?

          Origin: Latin
          Meaning: Presiding official
          Rating on babycenter: 273

Vincent: I suggested this name because I really like the nickname Vince.  I love Vince, but don't really think it's substantial enough for a first name.  But we both really like the name.

          Origin: Latin
          Meaning: Conquorer, Victor

Travis: this is another name that was suggested when I was pregnant with C.  We both like the name, but haven't really talked about it much, it just always get brought up when people ask what names we are thinking about. 

          Origin: Latin
          Meaning: from the road crossing

There are more, but that's enough for now.  Any thoughts?  Suggestions?

Name information can be different according to different sources, I went with babycenter, because well, I just did :)



  1. I'm Italian. My dad's middle name is Vincent, my grandfather's name was Vincent (nickname Vince), and my dad's brother's name is Vincent (nickname Vinny). Anyone named Vincent automatically gets assumed to be Italian or from Jersey. I also have five or six cousins named Nick, Nicholas, Nicky, or some other variation.

    Just sayin. :)

  2. I like Dean. Haha, and I love that confusing blog posts made the list for maybe eliminating a name! :)

  3. Yeah, I thought about the whole "Italian thing" with Vincent...but my mom and dad are both from NY and I have an Italian Uncle...does that count :)

    I know, Hubby looked at me like I was crazy when I said that, but the stress of thinking of new nicknames! C1 and C2 just won't cut it! Maybe I would just use names at that point :)

  4. I like Colby and when HC first told me some of the names they were thinking about she said Colby Marshall and Travis and I thought she was saying first and middle names together, so I really like Colby Marshall as a full name. Dean I can kinda see too.

    Now, on this whole nickname thing for the blog, I don't remember where I saw this, but another blogger used cute nicknames for her kids, like little tike, spud, and the kid. So this could be a possibility in the future?
