Hey gals and guys!
I haven’t been on nameberry in a while - since I thought we had settled on our names - but some things have changed since then. First off, we know its a boy! yay! Second, DH finally decided to sit down and tell me what he wanted (since the due date is coming quickly!), and he wants to call the baby T.K. I actually like the whole initials for a name deal since it gives the child so many options (they could call themselves by their initials, as their parents chose to do; they could use their first name; or they could use nicknames). So, I love it, and off we go!
The K was easy. We chose [name]Keaton[/name], my great-grandmother’s maiden name. Easy & done.
Now, a second middle? I’m a Buddhist, and while I originally thought I wanted to use a family members name as the middle, I’ve decided that I want to honor something important in my life and use the name Siddhartha. Its a bit too out there for me as a first name, but with T.K. the middle’s already taken. So, could it work as a second middle? (I like two middles…so it doesn’t bother me if there’s two).
Finally, the T. After scanning many lists, we’ve narrowed it down to two choices: [name]Thatcher[/name] or [name]Theo[/name]. [name]Both[/name] we like based on sound (no family connections or even the meanings), so that’s where we’re stuck. Is [name]Thatcher[/name] too close to brother [name]Forrester[/name], though? (even if he primarily goes by T.K.?)
Ultimately, the combos:
[name]Thatcher[/name] [name]Keaton[/name] Siddhartha Strong
[name]Theo[/name] [name]Keaton[/name] Siddhartha Strong
I know its long, but I’m a fan of long names. Sibs are [name]Sonja[/name] and [name]Forrester[/name].
Thanks so much to anyone who’s actually managed to read this far, and a double thanks if you reply
