Well it looks like my husband and I are newly expecting! It came as a surprise and I was taken completely off guard! We're not telling our families yet because I am still just barely along, but now I can actually realistically discuss names, something I've figuratively spoken about for years (and on this forum a bit).
So here's the lowdown: Our last name sounds like "slim" but with the "sh" sound at the beginning.
For Boys: My husband's name strongly reflects his German ancestry (Kl@us W0lfgang) and he'd like to stick with that tradition, as well as the tradition of using a name starting with a "K." However, he also likes the idea of honoring his Irish side, too.
Right now his favorite name is Cormac, but he'd like to spell it with a K. What do you think of Kormac? I usually don't like adding a K where a C should be, but I'm a fan of the name and it fits our guidelines. Our other favorite name is Konrad. Middle name will probably be Wolfgang or Frederick.
For girls, we usually like the more flowery, longer names. We both like Emmanuella, Aurelia, Theodora or Adelaide. Middle name will be Marie, a family name. So far my husband is stuck on Emmanuella nn Manny, but I'm not completely sold on it. Though I do like it. We both like nicknames so we are going for names that have a lot of those possibilities.
So what do you think? Any favorites? Problems you see? We're definitely still open to suggestions, as well!
Thanks in advance!
