Need help with baby names!

My husband and I are having trouble thinking of names for our baby. We want something meaningful that relates to our story. In 2007 I was pregnant but at 7 weeks I had a miscarriage which was pretty hard on us. That baby was due on 8/20/08. I am now pregnant again and this baby is due on 8/20/09. For various reasons we believe that is no coincidence but a gift from God. If you know any names that would fit our situation please comment! We don't know yet if it's a boy or girl so all suggestions are welcome.

NOTE: If your going to tell me that I'm crazy, ignorant, stupid, etc. for believing this baby is a gift from God please don't waste your finger strength.

  • ~August~

     I like that name and it's obvious it relates to the month that both little ones would have been born in. Congrats!

  • Sorrt couldn't think of any boy names

    Answer by NicksMom11385 at 1:39 AM on Mar. 27, 2009

  • .I would say for a girl Precious because life is precious and for a boy Destin because he is destined to be here! Your story was very touching to me. I had such a turbulence pregnancy I thought we would lose him for sure. I named him David (beloved) Lennon (giver of love) due to complication he will be our only so I made sure his name was all that I felt he is and will be! God bless you and you blessing!
