Just for fun!

I'll start! My baby's name is Audrey. I guess I always adored Audrey Hepburn, which gave me the idea. It was also one of the only names we could agree on! I also liked it because it is classic but doesn't sound old an stuffy.

Our baby's name is Maxwell Craig. He is actually named after our fathers. Maxwell is my husband's father's middle name and Craig is my father's middle name. It is great that they sound great together!

My daughter is my only living child after ten pregnancies and nine years of trying. We named her Christina Rose. Spelt out it is Christ In A Rose.....because she was a gift from god that took a long time to blossom! So lovely to read all the special ways and reasons that babies have been named!

My son is Quinn Frederick Galvin. My husband is irish and I always said our sons would have Irish names in honor of his family. His name was going to be Griffin, but as my pregnancy went on, i didn't like it as much. My older son is Liam Michael and I love the name so much and I didn't feel as good about Griffin, so while I was in labor, I said we are naming him Quinn. and that was that. and Frederick is after my dad and grandfathers. ( michael is my brother)

My daughter is Evelyn Louise. Evelyn means Desired and Louise means Life. And she sure is a desired life.



She is the 7th generation with the middle name Louise. It's passed from mother to daughter and it's very special because in my family we don't have a lot of girls.



I always loved the nickname Evie and when searching for an old fashion name that doesn't sound like an old lady, we knew that Evelyn would be perfect! Hubby calls her Evie Lou when he's being really sweet and trying to make her giggle.

Luella Elizabeth. Luella, after her great-great-grandmother (94 years old) and Elizabeth after her great aunt. We call her Ella about 50% of the time.

Noah Elden. My husband named him. The name Elden is a family name, my husband, his father and his grandfathers middle names are all Elden so the tradition is passed on again. He just liked the name Noah and hadn't heard the name used that much.

Now that we are in our new location there are at least 6 Noah's in our neighborhood alone.

So much for an uncommon name. lol

me and my husband couldn't agree on boys names for a very long time. he's a jr and wanted a third and i just felt like it was to much and i didn't want to put pressure on him to have a fourth. i was reading a book (i'm a romance novel junkie) and one of the characters last name was lawson and i loved it. his middle name is my maiden name, kinda after my grandfather who passed away when i was 11. i didn't want to use his first name b/c we already have 3 others in the family with his first name.

Our daughter's name is Natalie Jean. Natalie is from the Latin for Nativity and we found out she was a girl on Christmas Eve. Jean was her paternal grandmother's middle name who passed away the day before she was born.

We named our son, Jadsden Lee Ripp, we love different names. Jadsden Lee is named after his dad, Jared Lee. Then we kind of made up Jadsden, there is a City called Gadsden(which we really liked the name) and we knew we wanted his name to start with J so he would have the same initials as his dad so we just changed it to Jadsden. :)

My little girl is called Evie Mae... we chose Evie two days after she was born, so we could meet her and get to know her before chosing her name. Mae is the month she was born, but spelt slightly differently. We did think of Mai, but Mae worked out better. If she had been a boy, she would have been called Leo - there's no reason behind it though.

We named our son Samuel Francis. My husband has always liked the name "Sam" & my great-grandfathers name was Walter Samuel. I love traditional names, & felt that Samuel was a strong, traditional name. Francis came from my other grandfather, his name was John Francis, but was known as "Frank". My husbands best friend's name was Billy Francis, he passed away in a snow mobiling accident a few years ago, & we wanted to pay tribute in a small way.

Our daughters name is Olivia Joan Therese, Olivia has always been my favourite name, & again, I love that the fact that it's very traditional. Joan is my Mom's name & Therese comes from St.Therese....we had alot of health problems when Olivia was first born & I prayed everyday to St. Therese for strength....well, Olivia pulled through...so I felt that I needed to add Therese as a second middle name.....

My son is named Braylon David. Braylon Edwards is a football player and his name replaced the name that my husband always wanted which was Bode (like Miller the skier). I hated Bode but I liked Braylon. My dad and brother are named David and my father and brother in law are named David so we killed 4 birds with one stone!

He was obessed with the name Samantha and I didnt want it to be her first name so we decided to make it her middle name

My daughters name is Abby Alyssa. Its a funny story because my husband and I were trying to think of something that went together well and was unique - but we ended up with it being two very unique names! We don't regret it though. We think when she is in school her name will be the unique one in her day, with all these other unique names.

My baby's name is Matson. I named him after his father, Matt. The name Matson literally means "Matt's son", and it is a perfect, cute name. Unique, and fits him. Couldn't imagine a different name now, I had him named Matson 6 months before he was born:) Anytime you can make baby's name special by incorporating family members' names, middle names, etc, I think it is so nice and keeps family history. His middle name was the name of my Grandfather.

We named our son Braden Tripp. We just loved the name Braden when we found it online under baby names. His middle name Tripp was because my fiance loves dirtbike racing and a rider in one of his movies was named Tripp and he just loved that name and I thought it was cute as well so.

My sons name is Adler James. I heard Adler as a last name and it stuck in my head as well as being unique but everyone wouldn't say it wrong or have trouble spelling it. I wanted his name to end in -er because most boy names and with -n or -y or something. Now that he is 8 months old I find alot of people are using last names as first names, so I wasn't as original as I thought but I've never met an Adler and it fits him perfectly so I am very happy. James is my fathers name and I'm a Daddy's girl so I always wanted to name my son after him. He's the best man I've ever known.♥

hi my son is called Charlie Edward Smith and he was born 2nd may 09, Charlie was the name of my grandad, he and i were very close and he died of cancer so that name is special to me, Edward was the second name of my step grandad who was also very close to me and died 3 years before Charlie was born so that name is also so special to me. and Smith is my fiances last name and of course is special to me because i love him with all my heart which is why i wanted Charlie to have his last name. :)
