[name]Hi[/name] all -
We’re having a little girl and have landed on two possible names - would love to get your take on it! We’re also open to other ideas
[name]Auden[/name] [name]Holladay[/name] [name]Parker[/name]
[name]Auden[/name] - we just like it, plus we are both book nerds (love the poet reference), plus my husband and I both have unusual/gender neutral and “last names as first names” so this fits with the family name style
[name]Holladay[/name] - old family name from my mother’s side, love the sound
Downsides: Wondering if “[name]Auden[/name]” will be too trendy in a few years? Or if it is too similar to “[name]Jaden[/name]/[name]Caden[/name]” trend that I dislike so much.
[name]Jane[/name] [name]Ashton[/name] [name]Parker[/name]
[name]Jane[/name] - My mother’s name
[name]Ashton[/name] - Middle name in my husband’s family for 5 generations of first born kids, honoring some pioneer ancestors - big tradition
Upsides: wonderful way to honor family and very meaningful, lovely sound
Downsides: Initials spell “JAP” - WWII era derogatory term for Japanese. Yikes!
Open to other ideas too!
Thanks so much!
