The Name Game

It's that time once again to come up with the perfect baby name, and this time it is for a GIRL (fingers still crossed!)  In the past I have come up with lists of names and Darling Husband crosses off most of them until we can agree on something.  We discussed baby names a few months ago, and thought we came to an agreement because we both walked away from it with a name that we've been telling people who ask - only he has been telling one, and I've been telling another.  Today we realized the error, and both prefer our chosen name.

So, the name I (really really) like is Cambria, with a long a in the first syllable.  He thinks of dinosaurs, because apparently it was a geologic period between around 542 million years and 488.3 million years ago.   I've said all along that virtually no one knows that - I sure didn't, but he is a walking encyclopedia.  The name he likes is Cherise.  Any thoughts???  My second choice is Mischa ("Meesha").  We have no middle name contenders yet.  The due date is June 10.  There are some other names on our list that we both like.  The boy names are left over from Tristan's gestation.

Ooo, I like Mischa :) Cherise is a good name - it belongs to my sis-in-law - so I just think of her when I hear it! You all wouldn't have that problem, though! :) Good luck deciding!!

I'm sorry for your predicament, but that is hilarious! Hope you guys can come to an agreement:)

Hmmm good luck:) Not sure how your second choice is pronounced. I kinda shy away from names that you can't pronounce on the first try. I do like Cherise though. Cambria is different but pretty too. Welp. at least you have a couple of months...

I love Cambria!! I would veto Cherise immediately.
