  • My son is Matthew Edward after his dad. My oldest daughter is Madilyn Elizabeth...Madilyn because I liked it and Elizabeth after my grandma. My youngest is Mikayla Rose, Mikayla has my moms name in the middle and Rose is a family name.
    I always try to establish some form of family connection in the middle name, and the first names are just names that we liked, besides my son who is the JR.

  • Well, for my oldest and youngest, they were names I liked. I have always wanted to name my kids Logon and Lily, so I did. My middle son was named by hubby, so his middle name is his family's middle name.

  • We picked our names based on how it sounded with our last name. Then we tried to figure out all the different ways the name could be said (i.e. Christopher = Chris, Benjamin = Ben) and looked at how those sounded. Our last name is hard to pair names with, so it was a bit of a struggle, especially for the girl name.

    After we made a list we liked, then we looked at the meaning.
