How did you get to choose your baby´s name? Do you know where it comes from and what it means?

Emiliano is my baby´s name "the one who works with effort" he indeed deserves that name, the first 3 months of my pregnancy were so full of effort, we thought we wouldnt make it, I had taken wrong medication for a treatment, thanks god he grew perfectly, nowdays he is a handsome 7 month old boy so lovely :)

i wanted to name my daughter fé (faith) but my husband said no. I really like the name raquel (lamb of God) because it was less common and also in the Bible. her middle name is hope. i lost a baby before her so i felt i had to have lots of hope in God to try to have another one. :) i want the next girl to be named fé or fay for her first or second name

I have 6 going on 7 so her goes...Killian Sebastian, his name means "little warrior" and" red bearded or revered one. Dadddy wanted a strong irish name that was hard to make fun of. next is Asliea Jonlie. it is said Az-LAY-uh shjon-LEE and the first name was a friends screen name online and was pretty, she goes by Liea, LAYUH though it means vision of loyalty and Jonlie is after two family members jon and lee. next, Zaden Donivan Joe, the first name means fiery and is a form of Aiden. His daddy insisted and called him that in the tummy till it grew on me. Donivan was my choice because i wanted him to have a second irish name Like his big brother and Joe was the middke name of my besty who he was born the birthday of!

Then Maddox Alexzander was not named till after he was born. Maddox means fourtunate and Alexander means defender of mankind.
Valekyrie Marilyn Michelle. Valekyrie was for my dad who is norwegian and he thought it sounded better said like Valerie with a k in the middle. Marilyn is what my dad wanted to name me when i was born, and Michelle is after my sis. Ozzie Lawrence- I wanted a nature name really bad this time and hubby found this one and it meant God of the Forrest! it was the only name we both sorta liked! lawrence is my dads middle name! I love him, can ya tell! LOL

Now for this one I have a couple ideas for boys! It will probably be Noe, Carlos, or Cal and middle name or names will be Timothy patrick or Rande

For a girl which i think it is, her name WILL be Evelia Charlotte Yvonne and the first name means life. I LOVE IT! Charlotte is after my gram, and Yvonne is a family middl ename my cousin, my aunt, my gramma, my great and great great all share!

My Son's name Gabriel means the guardian angel Gabriel and i also chose it cause a family friends name is Gabriel and i loved it.

Our firstborn is a son. He is name after my husband and his friend. We did not consider name meanings, only how the names sounded with our last name. His full name ends up meaning "noble servant or noble care-taker."
Our daughter's name was chosen, by committee, out of a list of nearly 100 name combinations that we didn't detest. Each name was chosen by meaning or because it belonged to a dear friend or family member. Her name is a combination of my friend's name and the name of my great-aunt, cousin, and my husband's great grandmother. Of course, because she'd been long awaited and prayed and cried over, we knew she's be a little princess and rule the house! Her name means "gracious princess" (she easily lives out the princess part, we're working on "gracious")

awwe thats sooo cute! my sons name is Matthew and it means "Gift from God" and he indeed is my little gift. I had had 2 miscarriages before and I was told that I may never get pregnant again. And I worried all the time because i thought I would lose this childl too. my pregnancy was easy and no problems.....and now he will be 6 months old on the 14th of March and he is wonderful! He rarely cries unless its necessary, he goes to bed on time, hes so freakn silly its incredible...and he is the most intelligent baby i have ever met! My father passed away 2 years ago and I swear my son is my father. He looks exactly like my daddy and he acts just like my daddy. God has truly given me 2 gifts in my son, the gift of having my father back....and the gift that i have a child that i thought would never come true

Shaelyn Nichole is my oldest and Genevieve Isabella is my youngest.Shaelyn means fairy princess or from the fairy place in Gaelic and Nichole means victorious people in French. I picked Shaelyn because I knew that she was magical to me and would be my princess and Nichole for family. Genevieve means white wave in French and race of women in Celtic. Plus I loved the nickname Evie which means pure. Isabella means consecrated to God and she is indeed a gift from God. Bella is a nickname and means pretty. So pure and pretty.Bonus Not too many Shaelyns' or Genevieves' out there.

My daughters name is Hannah. We named her after my mothers mom, who died at age of 31! I never knew her but a niece and I were also named after her, so I took the tradition with me and named my daughter Hannah. My grand-mothers name was Anna, my name is Ann and my nieces name is Anna. My mother is crazy about my daughter en finds it very sweet I named her after her mother, who she loves en misses! I on the other hand find it a honor to name my daughter after a women who fought cancer untill the desease killed her for over 40years ago! My mom had, at the same age as her mother, had the same cancer but she was in time to stop the cancer from spreading to her intire body!

with my firstborn i was going to name her Samantha Jo (sami after my fav. days of our lives character) and Jo being the female form of Joseph which is my fathers name. Only at the last second my sister in law named her son Sammy, so I scrambled for another name. I chose Krista after another days actress Krista Allen, and chose the middle name JoLei because my dads name is Joe Lee and my sisters is Joleen, so it was a good mix of the two. My second daughters name is Raven Tiara Raine and none has any specific reasoning for chosing it other than the fact that I thought they were beautiful names and couldn't settle on one. lol. My 3rd daughters name is Arianna Elyzabelle and I got her first name because my fav. aunt had just passed away and her name was Ann, and I thought Arianna was beautiful, and the name Elyzabelle was after my mom, who had died previously as well. My moms name was Elizabeth but she didn't like the shortened versions and i also liked Belle but not so much Isabella so I combined the two and made my own name. Finally I had a son, and chose Cayden Troy Joseph. Cayden was just a name I thought was lovely, Troy is my husbands middle name, and my dads name being Joseph.

We named our son Isaac which is Hebrew and means "laughter". It took us six years to conceive him (he is now almost 12). When I called my husband at work to tell him I was pregnant I was laughing. He told me that minute that we were having a boy and we would name him Isaac. He was totally right.

Lily ( Lillian ) - my favorite flower. The name was not as common as it is now (11 years ago).
Luna - a family name. She was born New Years Eve in the middle of the night. The moon was as bright as ever and when she came she had the biggest cheeks ever. Like a little moon.
Ellington - Both my husband and I are musicians and thought it sounded neat and different for a girl.
Paloma - means dove or small bird. My youngest and smallest girl. She was very delicate her first days. i thought it was a beautiful and powerful name.

My oldest son is named Jasper because I liked Casper the movie when I was a child. Instead of Casper I named him Jasper. His name means from french a green ornamental stone which I love green stones. Leon(Brave as a lion) was just wildly added to his middle name. My middle son is Jake Don, I chose Jake( because I needed a J! All my nephew's names start with J. My late grandmother started this.lol! I have 6 nephews whose name starts with J.Anyways, Jakes middle name came from my Spiritual Healer in Native American. His name means supplanter:substitute. Bible son of Abraham.My youngest who is my daughter is named Lyla Celine I named her Lyla because I loved the movie "August Rush" . Lyla means in french an island and Celine means goddess of the moon in greek.

My son's name is Taisen, pronounced Tay-son kind of like Jason but with a T. My husband was just putting words together and he came up with this one! No real meaning as it's a made up name! We wanted something different, not in the books, yet pronounceable!

My daughter's name is Lucinda Aria. It means "Light Bringer's Song" in Latin. I chose it because her daddy is a musician (thus the song part, and an aria is an opera solo sung by a woman) and Lucindacame about because i saw this quote somewhere: "In absentia luci, tenebrae vinciunt" (In absence of light, darkness prevails). So when I was researching baby names I saw Lucinda and remembered that quote. So I suppose, she's literally the "light of our lives.".

I chose my daughter's (Adrianna's) name from Vince Gill's sing "Pretty Litte Adriana." The meaning of her name is "a sultry, dramatic name that implies a strong-minded woman with dignity and substance. She's only 4, but her strong-mindedness shows through flawlessly.

My son's name is Malik and it means "King" in Arabic. I chose this name because I want him to grow into a man who leads and inspires any person he comes in contact with. I want him to be proud of his heritage and himself as a man.
