I worked at a nursing home when I found out that Nate was going to be a boy. I had all the residents give me names they liked and I narrowed it down to Nathaniel. Francis (my dad's dad middle name) was going to be his middle name no matter what.
I worked at a different nursing home when I found out that I was going to have another little boy. So I was giving a lady, who did not talk, a bath and I was asking her what she thought his first name should be. I was giving suggestions. She shook her head at most of the names and when I said Cornelious Armine she said yes so the name stuck. Armine is my mom's dad's dad's middle name.
By the time I had Zeke I was married so I was talking to dh about a name. So since both Nates and Corys name were in the Bible we thought we should get his name from there too. So we agreed on Ezekeil. James is after my dad's brother who helped me get back on my feet after some hard times.
Quoting Anryan:My son was named after my fave fiction character: ryan cawdor in deathlands
My daughter was named morgan cause I liked it an her middle name is star cause we saw six shooting stars on the way to the hospital the night she was born
First names came from baby books/suggestions from family, middle names honor family members. :)
I usually would make a list and he'd tell me what names he liked. There were times we didn't agree but in the end I always got my way. lol.
my 3 oldest all have middle names from family members. There first names we came up with and are pretty normal but we tweeked the spelling to make them unique.
Kearsten Leona (Leona is my middle name, my grandmothers, great grandmothers, etc... passed down through generations)
Kieley Kay (Kay is my ex-husbands mother's middle name)
Kody William (William is my ex's and his father's middle name)
Ella Kassidy is my baby girl and Ella is my mother's middle name and Kassidy is just because I loved it and I wanted her to have a K somewhere in her name.
I love my four K's.

We didn't. DD came with her name LOL. She was a month old when we brought her home. Now we have names picked out for future kiddos. We've had our names picked out for 10 years now. We pray we get to use them some day.
