How did you decide on your babies names?

How did you end up picking the names for your babies? Were they names you liked, were they family names, did you name them after anyone famous, were they names that you liked the meaning of?
What names did you choose?
Mine I used some family names, some names I liked and I did name 1 after 2 different sports figures.

  • our son has a family name. (2 middle names) First name and first middle are after FIL, and second middle is after my father. S/O and i agreed if we were having a boy, she would choose the name, and if we were having a girl, i would choose the name. We stuck by it. our son was originally going to be a Jr, after FIL, but when we found out at the ultrasound he was a boy, and the biomom asked his name, my S/O told her his full name, including my dad's. I was thrilled :)

  • My daughter's name is Scarlett Abigail. I got Scarlett from the actress Scarlett Pomers who is an actress on the TV show "Reba." I got Abigail from the character on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives."

    My next's child's name will either be Oliver Liam or Olivia Eindy. Oliver/Olivia was my FIL's middle name, Eindy was my MIL's middle name and Liam was the the last four letters of my grandfather's first name (William).
