Other, non family name 1
Thanks for the voting... deliberation will most likely contiue for the next 4 months or so.
Part of me knew from the beginning that I was pregnant with a boy. And the other part of me was in denial because having a boy freaks me out. I know little girls... I don't know little boys.
"Oh no, circumcision!" is the first big worry, followed quickly by, "Oh no, we have to choose a name for a boy!"
I have 4 months to worry about these things, but my brain can't help spinning around the possibilities. I am sure the mothers of my 8 nephews will be a big help with my circumcision fears, as well as all my friends who have lived through having a boys. As for the name, eek! It is a good thing we have lots of time. We had a girl name picked out and it would have been easy. A boy name, not so much! There were a couple of boy names we agreed on before, but now we have no idea as the reality of naming the male child are staring us in the face. Walker Remington is not a serious consideration, just to relieve your fears. Neither is Rascal, Colt, or Peter.
For the middle name we would like to do a family name, as we did with the girls. Emma's middle name is Danielle after my middle name and my mother whose middle name was after her father, Daniel. Mandy's middle name is Rose and short for Rosella, Jeff's grandma. Middle names for a boy are a lot trickier because, well, as I said before, we have 8 nephews and many of the male family names are used already for their middle names. That doesn't mean we can't use the name again, it just means the decision is more complex. And that is why I am asking you to vote. Here is a list of the possible middle names for our son:
William* (Jeff's middle name)
Isaac* (great grandpa)
Abe (great grandpa and dad's middle name)
The names with an asterisk are used by our young relatives for middle names. In parenthesis is the relationship of the person to me and Jeff. I didn't put Daniel on the list because we already have a Danielle.... great name for a great grandpa, but we want to share the love. As you can see, many of the names are already used: James, Thomas, William and Isaac. This is why we need your help.
