Rainbow Baby - stumped on girl names!
We have been trying for our rainbow baby for just under two years now, and I found out today that we are expecting at last!
I am a name loving person, my husband not so much, so after about a year he asked me not to bring up names again until "we actually need one".
Happily we have picked out a name for a boy that we both love, my husband was named after his father with a variation name (like Micah for Michael) and I found a third variant and we fell in love. With the idea of carrying on a beautiful family tradition and I love that it is an easily recognised "old fashioned" English name but not super popular today.
I am now terrified because we both love our boy choice so much murphy's law will come into effect and we will of course have a girl. About a year and a half ago I made a list of every girl name I loved or even liked in my life and he flat out hated all of them. That being said, he couldn't tell me what girl names he does like... I think he was just worn out and sad about our loss, whereas I was using names as a distraction to look to the future.
Anyways, I am hoping to take him a new list, now that we are officially have a baby January 2018!
I am hoping to find something similar with a girl name - a variation on a family name that we love, I am happiest when it is a name with the same meaning rather than a straight variation. Since there seems to be more men in our lives that we would want to name after than women, it makes it that much more tricky for me. I am hoping that fresh eyes might shed some light for me :) Or perhaps find a name I have overlooked!
So here are the meanings of the names of family members we would like to honour:
Horn (not the best meaning - but an amazing person!)
