In Response to Baby #1 Ideas

Thank you! Yeah, I'm sure there will be plenty of nickname that come from Judd! Thank you also for the thoughts about using a middle name. I had a friend recently share her experience going by her middle name, so I am rethinking that aspect.

In Response to Baby #1 Ideas

Thanks for your thoughts! If we used Judson he would still be called Judd. I'm just worried about the flow of Judd Robert.

I think everything you wrote about Geneva (why you like it, etc) says a lot more about the nann than the fact that it happens to start with the same initial as your eldest's name. I tend to think that two kiddos with matching initials is a coincidence, but three + states a pattern.

You like Louisa, which I think sounds great with your daughter's name. I'll suggest Luella as well as Lucinda.

Best of luck!

Aisling is my middle name. My mom said that she wanted to use it as my first name, but my dad thought it would be too hard to spell. But my last name was very Irish so I don't think it would have been to bad :)

In Response to Love, Like, Lose girls

Love: Rosa (not as much as Rose, but still), Summer (Love love love), Rebecca (cute nicknames, lovely full name)

Like: Winifred (I love Winnie, but not Winifred as much), Brie (a little too short, I'm not a fan of nn as full names), Sally (cute, old fashioned, sweet)

New list: Rosa, Summer, Rebecca, Winifred, Brie, Sally, Lenora, Juliana, Amberly

Those are just some different ones I can think of. Congratulations on your growing family!
