Why did you choose the names for your kids?

I just wanted to do a fun little post lol. When you were picking names for your kids did you go through books and search or did you use family names? Dh and I decided to go with family names. My mom had a cousin who passed when she was a teenager and her name was Raquel. I thought it would be nice to have another Raquel name. For dd's middle names we used my moms middle name and my grandmas first name. I like hearing about how some picked out the names. 

♥a marines baby girl♥
I'm a Marine's baby girl and I'll always be
Giving up precious time so we can all be free
But still I'm the baby girl of a United States Marine
Even before that day I was born
My daddy has worn that elite uniform
Khaki and green with dog tags to wear
No matter what, I know my daddy will always be there
When he returns fr
om work I nestle in his arms
Protecting me from the surrounding world and any type of harm
He might look scary and sometimes even mean
But here's my little secret, he's a softy for his baby girl even as a Marine
I wear my pink as my daddy wears his blues
My daddy knows why he is Semper Fi
You may call him leatherneck, jar head, devil dog and many other things
But I call him daddy 'cause that's what he'll always be to me.

I've always like the names. I wanted a "theme" for my kids names.

 DH and I could not agree. I got a book and every night a real one letter out loud. It took us until Shelby to agree..... Her middle name is after my mom.

My dd was named for us, and my son named himself. We were between Lucas and Eric ( dhs name) and when dh asked him if he wanted to be named Eric he let out a giant cry in protest. So Lucas it was. Lol

DD is Kamryn Lily - Kamryn because DH and I like it and I chose lily in honor of my grandmother. It was her favorite flower.

DS is Mason Andrew - I picked Mason, and although DH didn't like it, he went with it. He chose his middle name- Andrew after our nephew who passed away.
