Agnes Josephine Bliss Lastname was born on April 25 weighing 9lbs and measuring 20". We are in love!
We loved Agnes for her from the beginning of the pregnancy (thanks to the silly, adorable Agnes in Despicable Me) but were getting a lot of negative feedback when she was born and we finally announced her name, causing DH to hesitate (it felt like Henry all over again, though DH was more steadfast then). She was nearly two days old before we made it official. As her brother said, "She just has to be Agnes."
Her two middles honor some very special people and we're quite proud of her name overall! The naysayers have either decided to leave it alone or chose not to speak negatively in the first place. ;) As Laura herself pointed out, Agnes is a rather contrarian name, and my friends and family expected nothing less from me! ;)
Thanks again for your thoughts and suggestions!
