Mom to Mom Mom to Mom
We all have our reasons why we pick our children's names. So why did you choose the name you chose and what does it mean? Middle name too if applicable.

My son's name is Donovan Alexander.

Donovan = Celtic/Irish meaning "Dark warrior" or "Dark haired chieftain"
Alexander = Greek "Warrior" or Protector of mankind"

I chose the name Donovan because I met a guy named Donovan several years ago and I fell in love with his name, not him though. I chose Alexander because it is a strong name and I wanted a name that meant "warrior." Which ironically both do. I got to pick the name for a boy and my husband got to pick a name for a girl. Which is a good thing we had a boy, he didn't come up with a name, but he gets to chose our next child's name boy or girl.

Olivia is becoming popular I have noticed. A couple that we are friends with, their daughter's name is Samantha Olivia. The dad wanted Olivia Samantha, but mama made the final decision of order.


Quoting Pammi86:

We liked Olivia and her middle name is Joyce which is mine which came from my aunt who passed as a child.

We chose Natalie because out of the MILLION I wrote down... it is the Only one DH agreed with and loved. lol. I added Paige as her middle name because I used to have a teacher with a daughter thats first name was paige (In elementary school) and loved it. I remembered it all these years and decided it was perfect. Natalie Paige.
