So after many, many, MANY vetoes by DH, the other day my sister sends me a text with a new name and I hesitantly brought it up with DH: [name]Magdalena[/name].
The Mega-Vetoer’s reaction? “I think it’s pretty”. WHAT?? Wow!!! I was floored. Then he says, “You do know that is Mane’s full name, right?” Mane is his friend from back in Mexico and years ago they had a little on-again, off-again thing. (I didn’t know her full name was [name]Magdalena[/name] – they always do weird nicknames in Spanish). I’ve met her many times and we’ve hung out with her and her husband when we go back to Mexico to visit. There is nothing weird or awkward between her and DH and I actually really like her. She’s classy and has started her own business teaching art and music to kids. [name]Just[/name] kind of a cool person. So beside from the little thing with DH that never amounted to a relationship, I don’t have any bad vibes with using a name that has a link to her. But is that weird, anyway? DH says he wouldn’t mind – especially since we wouldn’t call our baby Mane, instead we’d probably use the full [name]Magdalena[/name] or [name]Magda[/name] or Magdalita.
What do you all think? DH likes the middle name [name]Sophia[/name] which I think is pretty. I also think it’s hard to find a middle name for [name]Magdalena[/name], since it’s kind of heavy, if you know what I mean. Our other DD is [name]Juliette[/name] [name]Noelle[/name].
Thanks for reading this little novel! I was just so excited to finally have us agree on a girl name! We do have a couple other contenders, but I’m most excited about [name]Magdalena[/name] right now.
