This is my problem with the name Everett. It's the city to the North that is known for crime and drugs... Just can't do it....
I still have mine! :-) They were my favorite!
Sarah and Katie were my favorites. Hmmmm.... DD's middle name can nn to Katie.... I need to pull those out as I had others that I made and named. I can't remember them other than the magnetic Princess Diana doll I have.
I think this is a great idea!
Yep! If you don't want to know, don't watch when they put the wand on. Neither of our children were shy, and the wand was aimed right there.
DD is Evangeline. She's mostly Evie, but sometimes, Eve, Eves, Evers (ee-vers), Vivi, or Eva. She also has options of Evan, Van, Vangie, Angie, Lena, Gigi, and Angel.The variety of nicknames was one of the reasons we love the name.
Delaney, Sydney, Audrey, Ainsley, Gabrielle, Emmaline, Danielle, Therese, Leonore, Adele, Camille?
Abigail works well, I think.
You aren't alone. We didn't find out with our oldest, so we had to come up with a name for both.
We found out with our daughter only because my son was *so* dead set on it being a little brother, and I had a feeling it was a sister and we didn't want his first impression of the sibling that was so long awaited to be one of horrible disappointment. However, just in case his prayers that "the baby grow a p3nis" came true, we had a boy name decided on as a backup.
Moss (b), Orrin (b), Blaze (b),
My husband does this. He's J. Gryph0n Sha***. Gryph0n is a nickname only, not part of his legal birth name (although he took it as a second middle name when we married).
My BIL and sister are Christopher and Stephanie. DS nn'd him Uncle Ferfer, but refused to give my sister her name until he was about 21 months. She went by Steffi, so I was rooting for Aunt Fifi, but she was dubbed Aunt Mimi. He's almost 14, and she's still Aunt Mimi.
I too struggle with Rachel/Rebecca and also Jessica/Melissa (I think that's the double "s" for that one).
Sadly, they justed wanted a "unique" name, so no homage. ;-)
And YES! Let's do a local PNW get together!
Gorgeous choices! We have very similar tastes in names. :-)One option that I have been coveting, but haven't convinced hubby yet (especially since there is no baby gestating) is the nn Birdie for Bernadette.
Yes, exactly this. It was fabulous to be able to give my NICU baby his name immediately. It also prevents medical errors (there was an article about this recently).
That said, my BFF who had identical twins allowed their older daughter to decide who was who. :-)
DD goes by Ev!e Kate (nns for her first and middle names).
Welcome to Baby Oscar!
I've had the same thoughts about Everett and Aurora! :-)
The ones on this side of the pond (Kitsap Peninsula) are Skyler = girls and Schuyler = boys. Although we know a couple of boy Skylers. Plus one Skyeler (I don't know why).
I'm also PNW (not far from Lucubratix -- we've had playdates together with our kiddos!).I know 2 Lachlans under the age of 5, multiple Finns of various formal names including female Finns, the only Weston I know is in his early 30's.
