7 Weeks To Go And Starting Over
The totally unexpected happened when friends of ours announced that they will be naming their baby girl Anna. We have not said anything about our name, Annelies, to anyone except a few family members. There is no way they had any idea and there is no ill will on their part. I know I have every right to keep the name we have chosen and I know it's similar but not exactly the same. But I don't want the two girls to be Anna and Annie, born two weeks apart. I WANT to choose a different first name, but I also know I want to keep Ann for part of the middle name. Possibly even use Annelies for the middle name. I have told my mother that we want to name the baby after her and use her middle name Ann as part of the name. She was very touched and I feel very good about that. At first I was really shaken by this, but now I am really seeing it as a blessing in disguise.
So, for now I think I like Violet Annelies the best, and I even feel excited about using that name even though it is so totally different than my other daughter, Meika Joy. But I have been thinking that maybe going down the German name road is really not the best idea. Meika was kind of a wild card name. I love it, but it doesn't encapsulate the style that I love. Below are some names that I like, broken down into categories (the categories that seem to 'fit' with Meika Joy's name), and then there is the list of the names I really love.
Any suggestions, ideas, or votes yes/no for Violet Annelies are welcome!
