Donnie was named after my Dad and has his Dads middle name Edward, he was his first grand-son--and Lonnie, she was named after my Grandfather that passed away when Donnie was 3 months old and has my middle name Yvonne--Anthony, my hubby loved the name so thats what we named him but I changed the spelling of his middle name Leih, because we have a nephew with the same middle name--Marcia Lynn, she was named after my Mom Marsha Lynn--Paige, I loved the name and she has my Grand mothers middle name Elaine--and Isaiah was something we both picked out and I always liked the name Ryan so thats his middle name. Whew that was alot of work LOL

 My dd got her name from two of her great grandmothers who both passed away before she was born.

Emily from my dad's mom and Violet from my mother in law's mom.

We just discussed names we like. Luckily we both love old fashion names. Each of us make a list and have power of veto lol. Then we just narrow it down.
