Every name has a special meaning! So what's the story behind your LO's?
LOL, when I was 12, my best friend's mom was pregnant with a girl. They hadn't chosen a name yet, so my friend and I were offering her silly suggestions like Summer Autumn, Sunshine Rain, etc. Well, one of the suggestions we made stuck with me. I never actually thought I'd name my daughter that, but I always thought it was cute. Well, one day, when my DH was still just my BF, we were discussing baby names and how I've had them picked out for at least 10 or so years. He shot every single one of them down. So, as a last resort, I put one last suggestion on the table, a name that my friend and I came up with one night while trying to name her unborn sister. As soon as he heard it, he smiled and said he loved it. We knew that if we ever had a daughter, that would be her name. And sure enough, 3 years later, we welcomed April May into the world!
audree was after dh's granny and charlotte was a name that i liked and dh loved because of charlotte north carolina(his fav football teams stadium is there LOL)
My daughter was named Esmeralda just because when we were looking at baby names after finding out she was a girl, we just KNEW that was the name for her. I couldn't imagine the baby I had seen in the ultrasound called anything different.
My son's first name, Emilio, came from movie credits in Mighty Ducks YEARS and YEARS ago when my husband and I were still in the beginning stages of dating. I had made the comment that Emilio would be a cute name for a baby boy and my husband agreed. We knew we would use it for a future boy and we did. His middle name, Hipolito, is in honor of DH's dad, though his brother also has that name.
Ok im pregnant with my 4th girl, so it might be long, lol.
My first is Liliana Rose- Lillies and Roses
My second is Gracelyn Monet- Monet painted water Lillies...get it??? Gracelyn is just cuz...
My third is Rowynne Elise- Rowan tree is Fairy tree. Elise is my gmas middle name
My fourth will be Zinnia Annvernie- Zinnia is a flower ( connects to the oldest Liliana) And Zinnia is also a flower fairy, so it connects to rowan being the rowan tree is a fairy tree, get it??? Annvernie is 2 gmas names( Margaret Ann, and Vernie Elise) Ann means graceful..goes back to gracelyn. And Vernie is a place for the alders, which are trees, so it connects back to Rowynne(tree)..
It makes sense in my head lol!!
Lucia--I loved Seventh Heaven, and Lucy was my favorite character...my husband was opposed to Lucy, so I came across Lucia..he still wasn't for it...needless to say, I got my way!
Cecilia--Since i named Lucia, I let my DH name her...he found this name once and liked it. We are Catholic and there is a St. Cecilia...so kind of after her (there is a St. Lucia too). A good role model for Cece.
Gracey--We came across Grace..but my DH thought it was too common plus we would call her Gracey anyhow..so we named her Gracey.
Marcus--I forget how we found his name...but this was always our boy name from the beginning.
My oldest is named after family.
My second oldest was just a name with loved, his middle name is a family tradition.
Number 3 is just a name we loved
The youngest is named after family
