Here is my ongoing list that I’ll add to until we reach perfection … true to my awesome child naming style you might gasp at some options, but never fear, hubby will probably veto those ones anyway :)
This is what I’m looking for … maybe something British (to go with Jemma) and something that doesn’t end in an “a”. Some of these do, but they could work as a middle name or I could keep it ’round for #3.
- Bellamy (Belle)
- Rose Paloma
I obviously want something unique, but it has to be normal enough for Dom. I keep getting inspired by last names turned first names. I like names that end in “er”, but not normal ones you hear around, see Fletcher below as a more unique example :)
Middle name will be after a family member. If we have a 2nd girl it’s very likely that her middle name will be Katherine after my sister, Katie. I like this option because Katie is the 2nd girl in my family and this would be our 2nd girl – get it? So, keep that in mind with girl names. I’m really loving Story Katherine, but Dom doesn’t. I like Ivy Katherine (Jemma and Ivy SOUNDS FREAKIN ADORABLE), but haven’t pitched that to Dom. Cecily could also work.
Boys just baffle me – I have the hardest times with boy names. Today I like Graham (but if you recall, Dom hates “G” names), West and Foster. I would consider Wesley/Wes, but some close friends have always loved that name and I don’t want to steal. Plus, West is more unique (and therefore more likely for Dom to veto). Foster is just amazing – it sounds little boy and grandpa all at the same time. Jemma and Foster sound like a sweet duo. Middle name for a little man will most likely be Valentine after my grandpa Edgar Valentine. Perhaps Dean after Dominic’s Dad … we’ll see what flows best :)
Ok, that’s the start of the name game. Now excepting submissions :)
P.S. This is THE BEST naming blog EVA!
P.S.S. It was my Daddy’s birthday yesterday – Happy Birthday Dad!!!
