I’m so glad I found you ladies- you have so many good ideas!
I am due with my second baby girl in [name]October[/name], so I’m starting to get a bit desperate about names, and hubby is not one who likes to sit around discussing! We already have one daughter, and he really wanted to name her after his grandmother (his mom’s mom), so her name is [name]Veronica[/name] (I chose [name]Elizabeth[/name] for her middle name- lots of women in my family with that name). [name]Veronica[/name] wouldn’t have necessarily been my first choice (or even on my list), but it totally suits her now!
We decided that I would get to choose this baby’s name, and after discussing some, we came to the conclusion that maybe I should choose first name and he’d get the middle name this time. He would like “[name]Eva[/name]” for the middle name, which is his mom’s middle name. I’m fine with that, and really wouldn’t mind using it as a first name, but to be perfectly honest I’m being petty and don’t want to give his mom the satisfaction of getting both names!
Another consideration- my dad passed away at [name]Christmas[/name], and I would like to do something to honor him- his name was [name]Carl[/name]. I like traditional/Southern names (I’m from [name]Virginia[/name]), and don’t want anything too common. Our last name is Burdsall (ugh)…
SOOOOOO (sorry, I’m very chatty!), I like:
[name]Caroline[/name] (by far my 3 year old’s fave)
[name]Frances[/name] (my grandmother’s middle name)
[name]Grace[/name] (I know, wayyyy popular, but I still love it)
I’d thought about [name]Carly[/name] for for my dad, but feel like it sounds too much like a nickname and a little too teeny-bopper.
THANKS for any advice- I just can’t stop thinking about it!!
