Expecting last child and first girl--feeling the pressure!
Hi, all. We have two boys, Barrett and Henry, and are expecting our third and last child, a girl, in December. We love so many girl names and have so many family members we want to honor, so it's been really difficult narrowing down the list. We'd like to include June and/or Louise in some form to honor grandmothers, or Faye, to honor my mother-in-law. My husband's favorites are Juniper, Abigail, and Frances. My favorite is Georgia, though I also like Louisa. Last name is Kennedy.
Thoughts on using two middle names? Such as Georgia June Louise Kennedy? It just seems like a mouthful to me, but I worry that we'll regret using only one grandmother's name. But if using a single middle name I prefer Georgia Louise or Georgia Faye to Georgia June.
Also, thoughts on the name Georgia, even though I have no real ties to the state or country? I love the name for being familiar but not common, elegant but not pretentious, and for fitting a little girl as well as a professional adult, and my husband and I both love the nn Georgie. I'm just wondering if I should steel myself for a lot of questions about our connections to Georgia the state/country or if it's weird to use the name when we don't have any connections.
Thanks in advance!
