My name is [name]Sherri[/name] & my family’s expecting baby #3 in about 20 days! The baby will be a delivery surprise… and we haven’t been sharing our name choices with friends or family 'cuz we did the 2nd time around and I was just miserable for WEEKS with all the thoughtless comments made about our choice.
BUT… I can help but want to tell SOMEONE… and I can take the opinions of strangers MUCH better than I can from family & close friends… so here goes!
My husband & I are BIG fans of using family names or derivations thereof…
Our daughter is 7 and her name is [name]Samantha[/name] [name]Leigh[/name], (loosely) named after her Great-Grandfathers [name]Samuel[/name] & [name]Robert[/name] [name]Lee[/name].
Our son is 4 and his name is [name]Lawrence[/name] [name]Jay[/name], named after his Grandfathers, [name]Larry[/name] & [name]Jay[/name].
They both go by their nicknames (which we are also fans of) [name]Sammi[/name] & [name]Lawrie[/name].
So… the names that have been stuck in my brain for quite a while for this new little one are…
For a girl: [name]Melinda[/name] [name]Kay[/name], after Grandmothers [name]Linda[/name] & [name]Debra[/name] [name]Kay[/name] and…
For a boy: [name]Rowen[/name] [name]Everett[/name], after Great-Grandmothers [name]Rowena[/name] & [name]Evelyn[/name].
With nicknames of [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Rhett[/name].
What do ya’ll think??? ([name]Don[/name]'t be TOO cruel!) LOL
