Name Game.

Since this wee one will be arriving in 9 short weeks, my husband and I spent some time over the weekend thinking about what we will name our little bundle of joy.  Although we are not going to reveal her name until she is born, we have established some rules for picking a name for our baby girl.

Classic (but not common)
Easily spelled
Easily pronounced

You see, I have a relatively uncommon name.  And don't get me wrong, I love my name but my entire life has been spent either correcting the spelling or the pronunciation of Briana (only one N, pronounced Bree-ANNA).  And it gets really old.  

So.  Our little girl will have a beautiful first name.  A meaningful middle name.  And my husband's last name.  And I can't wait to meet her and call her that name for the first time.

How did your parents pick your name?  How did you pick your child's name?  My name came out of a baby book.  I was to be Briana or Bridget or Bianca.  Or Dillon had I been a boy.  And I have no middle name but all of my siblings do.  Strange, I know.

And, can I just say, as amazing and as wonderful as Adobe PhotoShop is, their customer service and buying process SUUUUCKS.  Like so much.  You are a billion-dollar company.  Get it together.

  2. Hello! My name is Marcia...NOT pronounced Marsha.... So I totally get where you are coming from! I was going to be named Camielle, but my dad thought it was too hard to spell!
    ( did I even spell it right?!?!)
    My daughter is Amara Haven and My son is Miles Parker. We wanted unique, but easy names as well. We have since met 2 more Amara's ( she is 7 now) and 1 Miles ( he is 4) We are happy with our selections. We used a baby book for Amara ( it means eternally beautiful) and we just liked the name Miles. :-)

  3. There's so much in a name. :)

  4. seeing as I have one of the most popular names of the mid 1970's, I wanted something a tad less popular for our child.

    we didn't love what we found in baby books, though. Honestly, we didn't LOVE anything until it became his name, you know?

    We wanted an Irish or English name, easy to spell as well, and not on the top 50 list.

    Although I do see our son's name gaining popularity (I have heard more and more Nolan's since we chose it) in the years ahead, for now, it's perfect.
