our daughter Allison Blair is on the way...her first name we just love to death and her middle name is grandmas maiden name.

My daughter's name is Elodie Mo'Nae. Her first name was a compromise, her dad wanted to name her Melodie but I hated that name so I searched for something with the same meaning but a different name and turns out Elodie has the same meaning. As for Mo'Nae, my name is samone and everyone calls me Mone so my mom just choose to call her Mo'Nae.

My Daughters name is Beatrix Emy. We both loved the name Beatrix after seeing the movie Kill Bill (4yrs before she was born). And Emy is what we called her/him/it when I was pregnant, Emy the embrio.

My oldest is named after my two favorite singers (at the time) : Gavin Trent



My three youngest all have old family names from both sides:



Ella Corryn was named for my maternal grandmother who died when MY mother was just two years old.



Vivien Delaney was named for my paternal great-grandmother



 



and Madelyn Clarene Bernice was named for BOTH maternal great grandmothers ( Madelyn) and both paternal grandmothers



I should mention that I took some small liberties with spellings just to make them a little more unique



All of our kids' names fit them perfectly!

My daughter is Madison Sofia.  Her first name I just liked & her middle name is my great grandmother's first name.  My son's name was Jackson Stuart.   Jackson is his dad's grandmother's maiden name & Stuart is his dad's name.

My sons name is Zaid - rhymes with "made." It means happy in arabic. One of my husband's friends was giving suggestions for names and when he said that one, I was like "That's It!." So at 3 months I already had him named, and he definitely lives up to his name, he was happy baby and is such a happy child :)

Well where do i start, my eldest is Georgina Amy Louise. Georgina is my Mums middle name and Louise is my great gran and Amy just seemed to fit nicely in the middle. My son is Mackenzie Jordan Kevin. All through my pregnancy he was going to be Tyler Jordan Kevin, But the week before i gave birth i hear the name Mackenzie on tv and that was it, it stuck. Jordan because my partner liked it and Kevin after my dad. My youngest daughter is Olivia Frences Rose. Olivia because i just liked the name, Frances because it is my parners nan's name but it is also my dad's middle name. Rose after my nan, it was her middle name. So thats how my 3 beautiful kids got their names.

we decided if the babies were girls.... then i get to decide the name and if boys..my husband decides the names... our first was a girl... Sarah Elizabeth.. "sarah beth "... i didn't want just plain sarah. with our next we still don't know what it is so if a girl "aubrey taylor" and if a boy "dylan wade" i always imagine how the names will sound at their graduations.

My son is Joshua Charles joshua we decided we liked when i was pregnant and charles was my husbands great grandpa's name so that meant alot to my husband and father in law. Emily Grace is my daughter we went between emily and elizabeth when i was pregnant and decided that we liked emily the best and grace just sounded so pretty with it!! I am not sure what we will name the next one that comes along but we always come up with something that we like and name the kids right after they are born as we never find out what were having before the birth!!

My daughters name is Eliza Maria , Eliza after my grandmother and Maria, because we were in Rome (santa maria is everywhere - even a picture above the bed!) when she was conceived (on our honeymoon) and the first night that we suspected I was pregnant we had been for a meal in santa maria in trastevere, so we named her after that!

Our son, Jaeden Avery, was named using my Husband's, Jason Andrew, initials. We loved them together... and now they both have JAP without being a junior. My husbands family all have original names, no juniors or repeats...



Our daughter, Kamryn Lia, Kami for short, was named that b/c I loved Kami. I wanted her to have a more formal name so we figured out that I could spell Cameron as Kamryn and get just what I was looking for... Lia I came up with in the shower one morning... we like Mia but didnt think it fit quite right so I thought of Lia and there you go...



We had boy and girl names picked out b4 we found out the sex of each child... I wanted to call them by name asap!!

Okay here goes our oldest Kaitlyn was a name I loved and a variation of my own middle name KaLynn her first name is Victoria I thought it would mak a good ame for the stage!

Our next daughter is Mattea Kay I let my husband name her, his name is Matthew and her middle name is a variation of mine (he is so unoriginal)



Our oldest son is William Keith which is after both my grandfathers and what my name was supposed to be had been a boy!



Our next son is Johnathon Zachary which is after both my great-grandfathers (my husbands family has odd names so we did not use any of them)



Our next little guy is Matthew Ethan we were not going to use my husbands first name ever but fell in love with Ethan and My dh middle name is Alan so we did use his first name and a name we fell in love with so our son would not be compared to furniture his whole life



Our last little guy is Ezekiel Alan, we named him after a prophet we chose favorite prophets and let the kids chose (they chose the one I wanted) and his middel name came from dh



That is how we came up with out kids names!

I HAD THE HARDEST TIME NAMING MY KIDS. SO I LET ME HUSBAND. I PICKED THE MIDDLE NAMES THOUGH. AFTER MY GRANDMOTHER FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY SONS IS AFTER MY HUSBAND. I THINK IT IS GETTING MORE COMMON AGAIN TO FUSE NEW AGE AND FAMILY NAMES TOGETHER.
