O people! :) I am lost in your numbers. But , enjoy! :DLet me tell you a story. There are 27 first cousins. Not all have children. Amongst them, they have produced 8 sets of identical twins and one set of identical triplets. half the twins mama and half the twins papa are in the cousin pool. This is my family. Yes, it defies all odds and theory and logic and blows plenty of minds. One day very soon I am having an ultrasound to see just what is up bc there are factors I dont care to reveal here... Mayhaps it shall also make naming easier. ;)
I would consider using Catherine as a mn.
I would consider Maragret for a mn.
I had not considered Lavender as mn... hmmm.
Cannot use Louise.
I mostly need first name ideas. The middle names will come.
I might just have to out this back on the back burner. But eventually this baby will be born and so help me if it has no name. :D
Whether used as a first or middle name, Margaret is a nod to my mom. She used a version of her first name as one of my middles. I plan to use a version of her second name to name my own daughter.
I definitely lean toward classics.
I am 22 weeks. I have never had such a hard time connecting with my in utero baby. I think I am just going to let this name thing sit again. Eventually we will find the right one. And I guess ifg we get eot birth and have a list of options I can gind out how people name a chld based on what they look like - which I have never understood...
Julia, George and Gilead became a tongue twister.
we have considered Beatrice, Violet, Esme, Frances, Florence,
The currewnt highest contender is Scarlett, but it does nto feel right for this baby...
Dh sys no to Alice, Delphine, Elizabeth,
So, how do I explain this... Pearl and Olive are a set in my mind. Dh was concerned about using Olive bc of Oliver. It does not bother me. Am I crazy?
I am not sure I can convince dh of Pearl for asingleton.
Actually odds of me having twins is pretty high.
I am going into this with twin names just in case.
The 2 G names was not intentional and did not bother me bc tehy are J/G sounds. But I have a lame tongue and cannot do more of them.
I do tend to like harder consonants. Which is often awkward with our last name - very hard consanant heavy. (the whole thing is up there ^^ just split...)I am nixing G/J names. We fostered a child with a J name that had alliteration with Gilead's name. NO ONE got called the right name. :( Otherwise josephine would be a maybe option. I like Evangeline, but Dh says no. Alexandra SameLastName is taken. Penelope is seomthign I like but Dh says no. Bernadette I love bc of soemone I know. But I a not sure I could use it as a first name.
I have to tell you that my first guess was 1971-3. Then I read it again and realized that Susan was there and that was a dead giveaway. My mom is Susan and she is on the young side ove most American Susan's. So I changed it to 1968 (her year) and came to see the thread.
I have to admit that I really don't like any of the names mentioned above. Well, with one exception. I would love to use Addison for a boy, but given its current girls stats? Middle name only for me. :(
I have not posted here for a long time. But when my SIL asked for ideas for Baby#4, this was my first place to turn. They have Le@h Rochelle, Z@chary Wade and Alex@ Noelle (Christmas baby). What is the first idea you would pass on to her?
I will pass along your suggestions. I may be back for more but it will be almost 2 weeks till she returns stateside...
Thank you :)
I am looking for name ideas. My friend is adopting a girl and needs to change her name. Currently she is Tameka and goes by Mickey. They plan to keep calling her Mickey bc it is just so her. The obvious choices if McKenzie or Michaela/McKayla dont really sing songs in her soul. She asked me if tehre was any other good name that I would suggest. I ahve not had much time to really digest all that but do any of you have a good idea?
Her only birth child she named Sara. I know that she likes "plain and simple" names.
I am all about Josephine. I shall have to live vicariously through you, dh nixed it.
Elizabeth T - great story. My mil and fil had the exact same last name.
Cash and Calico make a striking sib set. However I prefer Levi Nickel. $.02
My great-grandpa had a (not so) high name - Paul Bear. He did not think it funny but was always glad he was not his cousin... Harry.
I could not resist the 14 name challenge. I am nak the newest name in our house and loving every decision we made about his name...
Did I post it here after he was born? Can't remember. Gilead Michael Alan was born 16 days ago - on my dads birthday. Some of you may remember my queries about names to honor a Jerry wihtout using the JER sound. I solved it and just used his mn, Alan.
Amazingly (for me and many peopl who know me) he was "nameless" for about 8 - 10 hours bc DH and I both had a hard time calling him by the chosen name once he was actually in arms. But nothing we tried out felt any better so we decided to stick with it. Now? I have no regrets!
Catherine Maria Claire
Margaret Anne Marie
Elizabeth ??? Elle
George Oliver Lloyd (my real life boy)
Agh! that was harder than I thought. I did not go get my recently worn out list of name though so I know that would have helped.
Yes, I have 3 C names, however, they each have a different sound (K, CH and SH). As for Arthur and Alisdair, Elizabeth and Edmund... they just have to live with it. :D
Name watch: A mothering forum I frequent has a new baby... T@vish M@rley. Brother for V@shti.
The anangram was completely unintentional and unnoticed until pointed out after the naming. Interesting...
Much as I love "big" names, Eliza and Elizabeth are separate in my mind. And though I love them both, I would not nn Elizabeth Eliza, but rather Betsy. MMmmm yummy.
Juliet and Pierce would be my spellings of choice.
New babies at the birth clinic:
August Blue (b)
Tirzah somethingIcantremember... Rose maybe??
Interesting name siting...
Cashier at local big box store: Falaina
another cashier: Sief
I am loving Oliver Piers/Pearce/Pierce. Take your pick on spelling.
Current street twins... 228 and Walker. ugh. I grew up at the corner of Cremean and Piquad. (creh-MEAN, PEE-quad) Yes we always had to spell it. Old Indian (Cherokee?? Shawnee maybe) words.
jillc: to finish out the Marley, Harley, Carley set, I choose Gnarley.
Want to guess how well I like the -aidens? hee hee
