Outside the box baby names

If my husband wouldn’t have pushed the name Paityn so much, I honestly would have never considered it last pregnancy.  As in, it would not have even made my very long notebook list that I was constantly adding to (see below).  I came up with quite a variety, trying really hard to think outside the box and give this baby something especially unique.  I did not want one that was topping the list this year’s most popular baby names.

But the husband nixed most of them, including my most favorites.

So since my days of naming babies are gone, I thought I would loan them out to anyone searching.  After all, Paityn’s middle name was found (see, stolen) on a fellow blog.  (Any guesses where I got her middle name??)

Boys – this list is of course short since we stopped adding to it once we found out we were having a girl.  I don’t know what Guy would have thought, but in my mind if we had a boy, his name would most certainly have been Declan.


Girls – My top two contenders were: Millicent Lux (Millie for short) and Harley Noelle.  Guy hated them both.  When we finally decided on Paityn Luella, we were between that and Harper Lux.  There are so many great girl names out there that you almost can’t go wrong.

I’d love to know if my list inspired any of your children’s names!

    I love reading other people’s name lists! I totally know which blogger’s name tastes you like after reading your lists :) I’m such a stalker.

    I love Luella, and Isla is gorgeous! A friend of mine named her daughter Sawyer and I think it’s one of the cutest names ever.

    We actually considered the name Millicent for a long time because I saw it on your blog! My husband never fully got on board with it though

    I love Rowan, but my husband won’t go for it. He actually likes Beckett now, which I see was on your list. We have the girl name decided on, but nowhere close with a boy name. The list is huge!

    I comment when I especially enjoy a article on a website or if I have something to add to the
    discussion. It’s a result of the fire displayed in the article
    I browsed. And after this article Outside the box
    baby names. I was moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response :-) I actually do have a couple
    of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me
    or does it seem like some of these responses appear like
    written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online
    social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to
