Curious how your chose your baby’s name. Did it have a special meaning? Were they named after anyone special? Mine is Abigail Patricia. Patricia is after my husbands mother who passed when he was 13. And Abigail means Father’s Joy.

So funny enough, my name is Sunshine because my grandmother always told my mom ‘Good morning Sunshine’. So when she was growing up she said she was going to name her child Sunshine so it would be a play on words. LOL! I always get asked if my parents were hippies or something... nope just a little odd! And I never find my name on ANYTHING! Lol!
My oldest daughter was named after her grandma Julia (my mother) and my youngest daughter was picked just because I like the sound of it Dina which later I learned it is form of Hebrew Dinah.
I was named Becky because that's the name my mom always used for her dolls when she was a kid. LOL! And its not Rebecca, its just Becky. I love hearing others people's name stories. My daughter is Jaycee. For the initials J (my mother is Jamie) and C (my dad is Clarence).
My baby's name is Michael Alfredo, both his grandpa's names. Its our way of honoring their memories
My son is JR so he got his dads name. However, if we were going to have a girl the name would have been Grace LouAnn. Grace because I just love that name.. LouAnn because it was the middle names of both our moms combined. His mom's middle name is Lou and mine is Ann so they just would have fit together good I thought! Maybe next time
We were Team Green the first time (is that term still used?LOL!) and we each chose a name for our own genders. We are doing the same this time as well. The middle names will be a variation of his dad or my mom.
Since my husband already had an "Elizabeth"....the name I had picked out prior to even meeting him (it's my mom's middle name) I literally had no idea what else I wanted! I had my heart set on Elizabeth since I can remember. It's timeless..classic...
So, I had to settle for her middle name to be Elizabeth and since I had no back ups...my husband liked Isabella. I went with it since I had no argument...LOL...but now it definitely suits her!
I have twins - one of each so picking names was fun! My son is Elijah Rhett - because we just absolutely loved the names. My daughter is Sophia Grace- again we loved the name, and Grace is actually my mothers name. The flow sounded really pretty and at the same time it’s heartfelt.
We are leaning towards a Disney name, Aurora or Phillip, since we are Disney people. LOL! The middle names will be family names.
I am Frankie Mae. Francis was my Grandmother on my Moms side and Mae was my grandmother on my Dad's side!
I like the name Milagros...meaning miracle because i never thought i could get pregnant after trying for more than 2 years!
We named our son in honor of my husband's father Joseph. We put a spin on it and used Jonah. His middle name is Alexander. It's one of my all-time favorite names that I can't use because my close friend did.
Liam...my son will be named Liam, a friend dream that i got pregnant and called me...coincidentally we were trying then. So i decided to choose the name she heard in her dream!
My sons name is Lucas Russell, which the middle name is after my grandfathers who had passed away. My daughter will be Quinn Clarke, and there’s no meaning behind that, we just really liked the names and couldn’t decide the order!
My oldest has his dads middle name which happens to be the middle name of my grandpa as well. The next one will probably just be a name that we like. No real meaning behind it.
We incorporated our grandparents' names into our child's name. We also like old names and tried to go with something that would grow with our child and still sound great when she was an adult! So the name is not only something we like but it also has a special meaning! Choosing a name is hard but go with what you like. There will always be a thousand different opinions about the name you choose and there will always be some who love it and some who don't.
My dads name and my husbands grandfathers name were the same so we wanted to use that- it was a little bit of both of us and it super special to them. My other son is a junior. (Not by choice, I lost that battle!) lol
My son's names are after thier Dad and Grandfather.Edwards and Bruce. We need right from the start those were going to be the names.
This is going to be my first baby... I still have plenty of time to think about names for my little one, but I am almost positive I am going to be naming the baby after one of my family members. It is all going to depend on if the baby is a boy or a girl.
I'm a huge fan of traditional, older names....ones that stand the test of time. For example: John, Michael, Marie, Mary, Laura, etc...
I feel like I would get tired of a something that was "trendy" and then I'd be scared that I named my kid that! LOL This is not to say I haven't heard some great names that I never heard before....but when I think of what to name my baby...it has to be something I can say for the rest of my life without changing my mind! I change my mind a lot!
