DH and I originally agreed to name the baby after my grandmother or grandfather....Carrie Louise or Samuel Elliot but I changed my mind. It's a girl but she doesn't feel like a Carrie Lou to me. It's been a really hard pregnancy and I feel like she's got my other grandmother's spark....Marguerite Josephine. See where this is going? DH wants to stick with the original plan, I want some variation on M.J. even if we don't use the exact original...Margaret Josephine...Maggie Jo.... but my absolute favorite is Moxie Jo.

Am I totally nuts? Any tips on swaying DH? The other kids are all pretty conservative family names....Joshua, Anneliese and Whitten.

I like Marguerite Josephine.... and you can nickname her anything you please!!

(Margo is a pretty name too.
 
)


As for swaying the Dh
 
... I'd start casually referring to the baby in my belly by the name I liked... and getting the other kids to help me out.

Marguerite Josephine is a gorgeous name. Even the more conservative Margaret would sound lovely with Josephine and with your other kids names.

OK how did I miss this post Amy? I am not to keen on Marguerite or Margaret there just so old sounding for a little girl. I do like Moxie and Maggie is also cute. What about Molly Josephine? Or Molly Jo? Both cute. Just start calling her what you want. Maybe he will catch on.

I like all your choices! The names and the nicknames are adorable! Don't be afraid to name a tiny baby a "grown up" name. I did that with both of my girls and they don't go by nick names. A tiny baby will grow into a grown up name nicely!

I love Marguerite! Its beautiful and very little used. So old fashioned that it feels modern!
