  • Amanda says:
    We have a boys name waiting... that was easy to come up with (probably because we didn't end up needing it either time. For the girls names, Olivia was one that Grandma Trudy said and I didn't like at first, then 2 months later I liked it, and her middle name was Maree after my mothers mother. Emily was a name that both Mike and I could agree on and her middle name we just decided on when I was in labor, although I was convinced she was a boy so I didn't really think we would need that girls name

And the Edward is, of course, after his Daddy.

  • Ashley says:
    Justice's name came from the movie credits from Dare Devil. Jakoby's name came from a baby name book. Tre` got his name because it means 3 or the 3rd and that's what he is.

  • Brittany says:
    Adyson.....it was the first girls name in the baby book I saw and i LOVED the spelling

  • Jennifer says:
    I wanted Justin Cole. Brent wanted Joshua Caleb. Brent hated Justin Cole. I thought Joshua with Caleb was too much to put on any one child. So, we picked up the Bible and started with Adam and by the time we got to Jesse (King David's father), we both went "hey, I like that". His middle name is my maiden name, Holland, so that one was easy.

  • Jennifer says:
    Samuel is for my Great Grandparents who used to call me "Sam" as a child - thought I should have been a boy since I was the third Great Grandchild. Blake was the only name we could think if that sounded good with Samuel. (Incidentally enough, Sam Bradford was the QB for OU's football team the year Sam was born, while Blake Griffin was the Rookie of the year for OU's basketball team & later the #1 NBA Draftee.) Olivia was a name that Eric & I both really liked and her middle name Antonia was for Eric's Panamanian Grandmother who passed away in August of 2008.

  • Carla says:
    Joshua was a combination of ideas. Amanda was a compromise. Andrew was an agreement. Shawn was tough, but we got there. Doren did not want a biblical name, so we agreed on Shawn, and Doren finally gave in to the middle name Alan, which I chose because of my uncle, who is a great man of God.

  • Kylie says:

So we decided to spell it a "girly" way!

    In High school I tool a drama class my teacher said he gave his son's strong names so if they ever wanted to drop their last name they could. Matthew means "gift from God" as he was unexpected and I almost lost him that is how he got his name middle name ames for my dad. Brian Thomas, not for anyone really a strong Irish name though Thomas goes back in my family. Kevin Charles..this was a little sneaky I always like the name Kevin and Charles was for my grandfather but I told my husband we would call him "KC" to get my way, we don't we call him Kev..okay REALLY sneaky

    Axel:Axl rose from guns and roses, believe it or not his middle name (martin) came to me cause axel martin has a ring to it, i didnt realise why this was then it came to me, it sounds alot like the car Astin Martin. Jaxon: I couldn't find one that fit for him. at 3 days old he was finally named Jaxon Daniel Luke, Jaxon to represent my youngest bro Jack, my older brothers middle name is Daniel and other younger brothers middle name is Luke. The x was an idea i got from a nurse in the special care unit. and it sort of fits better with Axel
