  • We've chosen names that we like the sound of, but also like the meaning. We also like to make sure the meanings of the first and middle names mesh well.

  • We picked a couple just because we like them, others because they are family names. All of our kids (and names we hope to use) have at least one family name. Our oldest is Harrison James. We just liked Harrison, James is DH's middle name. Our second is Andrew Warren, Andrew is my brother and DH's brother's middle names, Warren is my fil's middle name. Our daughter is Mary Catherine (Kate) and that is my grandmother's name.

  • I picked my daughters name, well kinda came up with it because it sounded pretty and I wanted her to have something unique but not totally off the wall. I have always liked the name lauren but I know a few, so I came up with Allura. I am very happy with the choice and so was hubby with no argument.

  • Someone might pick Bertha because it's a family name, or Lord forbid, they LIKE how it sounds!
