I thought we agreed on a name BUT.......

So, DH and I totally thought we were having a girl, 100% agreed on a girl name, and then came my ultrasound showing it was definitely a BOY.  I wanted to bond with the baby and call him a name ASAP so I started the conversation literally as soon as we were out of the ultrasound!  We'd tossed a few names around so we did have some ideas...He brought up the name situation again last night so I figured that I would post a poll and see what you lovely ladies think...ALSO if you like neither name, feel free to suggest one..BUT it would be helpful to have you choose one anyways =)

AND the middle name Martin is non-negotiable...it is dh's dad's name...
AND our last name is pronounced Mic-Q-sic

I liked Tyler Martin as well. Even though I really like the name Cody, I think Tyler goes better! Good luck! :) Congrats on your little boy!

What's your dad's name?  We named our son for the grandfathers - Paul after my husband's father who died 12 years ago and Michael for my dad.  Paul Michael.  Martin is a great name and it's an honor to be named for a grandfather - we wanted balance and did both grandfathers so there was no favoritism or anything...

Sorry, this the Disney Freak in me, but one of the characters on Suite Life of Zack and Cody is named Cody Martin.  I personally like Tyler better, but just because.

I voted for Tyler...but keep in mind that he'll probably get Ty a lot...so if you're fine with that i like that one.
Personally I'd choose Cody because we don't want an abreviated form of a name (for instance I like Jackson but know he'd get Jack)

I voted for Tyler too!  Like Laura said, it flows better ... at least in my opinion.

And the nickname Ty is cute, imo.  I think of Ty Pennington ...and he's a cutie!!  =D

I am with jenntanis. Us Grown women watching Disney channel how funny! haha I think Cody Martin is cute but when I hear it it makes me think of a bad twin running through the Tipton! They are both cute but I like Tyler better!

I like both names a lot but I think Tyler flows better also.

I think Tyler has gotten to popular, I voted for Cody.

amy0013 - Gavin is a great name, it was my boy name for this one, but her name will be Lyla Katherine instead, lol.

I think it is still Tyler...DH refered to baby twice yesterday as Tyler...This sounds aweful but when I think of Cody I think of someone whom annoys me like crazy SO naturally it is not a good fit for me...lol

Gavin is a great suggestion...I like it a lot but DH does not like the more unusual names...although I don't think it is unusual..There are actually 2 brothers where I work called Tyler and Gavin =)

And, the reason we are using dh's father's name in the name and nothing to do with my father is a long story BUT basically my dad is a very addicted alcoholic and my parents divorced when I was about 6.  To this day 20+ years later he has not been able to sober up and be a stable part of my life.

hahaha... sweetangel7 I am laughing at your cody comment.  I taught 1st grade in the public school system and in my last class I had a cody who was such a trouble maker, he stole things from ME and my classroom, he was a "problem child".  So, i have a bad connotation with the name cody... and it isn't & won't be a good fit for me if I ever have a boy...lol!
