What's in a Name?

Ok, the invitation is officially extended...girl name suggestions please. And thanks to all who've already added them in the previous comments!

And please note...when we do pick a name, it will be a surprise until the baby is born so you will have to wait to see how it ends up. It's just more fun that way!

Two Mittens said...

You have very good taste in names! heh!

You should have a girl too =)

Two Mittens said...

how about Sara...?
anyone?

Mmmmaaahvelous said...

A lovely traditional name...if you're Amish. Maybe Siria.

Mmmmaaahvelous said...

Maybe I'm a little odd, but I like last names as first names. Such as Anderson(could spell differently) except would it be shortened to Andy? This is a name I really pushed for & B nixed. But then he usually likes soap opera names such as Lanie.

Sarah got vetoed off my list too. How about Kennedy, Mia, Brooke, Jordan, Ryan or Ryanne, Poppy, Apple, Piper, Pear, Peach, now I'm getting silly I'll come back to it later.

it seems as though some people try to hard to dream up a cool name for their child, a name does not make anyone special, different or cool out of the blocks...it's the character of the child that will differentiate one from another, the name Sara is traditional, yes, but beautiful. I'd rather the child not fight through life to explain her name with every introduction but rather show her distinct difference of being through her actions and spirit. Oh hey their is another name for you girls...Spirit..."great".
sorry, but many names I see posted are much like a tattoo, cool for a while and then wow... where can I get this burnt off my arm.

Well that just obliterated my creativity entirely.
Here is a list of my favorite names.
Rachel, Chela, Serena, Nanook, Roxanne, Ulla, Dot, Rainbowlovekisses.

T and I had our troubles coming up with a name both of us liked..like you guys we liked different categories of names, so first time around it came down to me trying to find one of his names to like. He suggested Hannah; but my argument against it was that it was too popular (in top 5 list the previous year I think). Then one day in the shower the name Emma struck me - it was on his list - and I liked it, I could really get my mind around it. Of course the joke is that Emma is rock star popular, way way more so than Hannah could ever be. We meet other Emma's all the time. I hadn't heard it much before I set my heart on it but then afterwards even before she was born I started to hear it everywhere; but it was too late because my heart had already decided. It is ironic though I never thought I'd be a person with a kid that would have to use her initial with her name to distinguish her from the other Emma's in the class.

Now if you named her something entirely made up you wouldn't have that problem.
For instance: Starwinkle
How about a combination of your favorite foods? Chocaminttea
I'm so glad to be helpful, really.

Two Mittens said...

I'm thinking of going all Gwen Stefani...Love Angel Music Baby. LAMB for short!

But honestly, some very good comments and suggestions.

p.s. the Sara comment was from Mr. Mittens himself. He's sneaky that way.

Peace Sweet Peas said...

Then you could call her Lambchops for short!

Alyson said...

My name was spelled oddly and I remember growing up and not finding pencils or paper or clips with my name on it and being disappointed. However there can be too many Ethans as I have discovered. Calling his name in walmart or ikea usually gets me at least three kids that aren't mine and to think I didn't know any when we chose it. He has two others in his kindergarten class.

We recently put Sydney on the list but are not toally in love with it.

Julie said...

Ooooh, girl names! Can I play?

Ella
Eva
Etta
Molly
Olivia
Ruby

When we had our list of names we had "Horseshack" on the boys' list and "Boom Boom Washington" on the girls'...

Darcy Schack said...

Rainbowlovekisses... LOL! That would have been a popular name in 1965 I bet, just like Starshine...

Mmmmaaahvelous said...

How about a little Lucy?
Lovely little Lucy.

Although Boom Boom Washington has a fun ring to it! :)

I thing naming someone Boom Boom insures that they will be a rowdy child!
