Middle name for June
Well, it's happening! After decades of obsessively naming imaginary babies, I have a real one on the way. We'll find out the sex in a little under two weeks. We're pretty set for a boy--he will be Peter Raymond Bame M@s0n. Peter honors DH's best friend and a really great cat my family had when I was growing up. Raymond is a family tradition on DH's side, and Bame is my last name (written phonetically). As you can see from my username, I am devoted to the 4-name format!
We are less decided for a girl. The first name will almost certainly be June, and we'd like to use the first middle name slot to honor family and/or friends. She will be June ____ Bl@nkinship M@s0n. Bl@nkinship is my second middle name and my mom's last name. So many names. Here are some contenders for the middle name spot, along with probably way too much information about the connections and considerations!
June Elizabeth: My first middle name, flows beautifully, but doesn't honor other friends/family
June Mariana: My best friend's name
June Joanna: Jo is both my and my husband's mothers' middle name; -anna honors three of my dearest friends; but we don't love the flow
June Leora: Lee is a family name on DH's side, Leora is a family name on my mom's side (but my mom doesn't love)
June Rosalie: Lee again, my italian great-grandmother was Rosina
June Luisa: Another connection to my Italian family, can we stretch and connect to Lee as well?
June Annalise: Lee and -anna connections.
And accepting other suggestions! I like longer names to go with the one-syllable first, I think. Thanks for considering!!!
