How do you pick baby names

Posted by   + Show Post

In our family, we all have four names...

A family name

a biblical name

a name to match it all

and a last name.


How do you pick baby names?

I suck. I pronounced it wrong in my head. I like it much better now. Lol!

Quoting tayanddyl:

It sounds like Tamia (like the singer) and Da-Nae



Quoting Rain2Rinse:

I don't necessarily like the baby's name, but that is so cool how you pulled all of the names together, and it worked! Plus, what a bonding experience, you know? That's awesome.





Quoting tayanddyl:

 my son (Dylan) was named by his father




my second child (Tayla) was supposed to be named Taylen but we changed it when she was born a girl LOL




and the baby (Tameah Dynae) is named after her sisters and brothers ... I have 3 step kids.  for her 1st name we used the girls names Tayla, Jamela and Zephaniah and for her middle name we used the boys names Dylan and Nathan

My sons' father has a bad last name... Let's just say I teased every name I could think of and picked the least teaseable. My daughter is named after my mom and dad.

We just kept bouncing girl names off of eachother until we found one we loved. She has my middle name & her first name is after the northern lights. Our boy name was easy to pick. My mil lost a baby when she was 6 mos & we were going to use his name.

we went with our middle names, so i wanted something that sounded good with those. i was trying to keep it to names that couldn't be abbreviated, but my daughter didn't luck out. hahaha...

That is such a sweet story.  I bet mil was so happy.

My mother hated when I started using an abbreviation.

For first names we just pick names we like. My name is Jessica Marie and dh is Jordan James. Our sons are Austin Jordan, David James, and Kaesen John. Middle names will always be a relatives name.
