what are your kids' names? - Page 2

Riley Ann - I had picked the name Riley out for a little girl when I was 16 - go figure that the first year I am able to use it, Riley is in the top 10 for girls' names. Oh well - she's definitely a Riley!

Anthony Malachi: no reason other than we just liked it. He's always gone by Malachi.

Zachariah Richard: was supposed to be Michaela Kathryn right up until the last minute, lol. My sister suggested Zachariah, and Richard is ex's dad's name. Goes by Zach, hates Zachariah, most people think it's Zachary.

Joshua Darryl: needed a biblical name to go along with the first two, and Darryl is my dad's name.

Allison Rose: (my stepdaughter) Named after her mother's mother Alice Rose.

John Christopher Van: Named after me and DH (Johnny & Kristine) and um.... the wrestler Rob Van Dam : DH's idea of course! He goes by J.C.

If he had been a girl he would've been Callasandra Riley, called Callie for short.


I love love love the names Kendyll Bliss and Caroline Tulip!

ooohhh. . .can we do future names, too?

If ds2 had been a girl, we'd have named him Dinah Grace. DS1 would have been Alice Rene.

If we get twins girls, they'll most likely be Lydia Marie and Lilly Margaret.

Ella Rose (ella is loosely based on MIL's name- Pamela, rose is from my grandmother Rosemary)

and Lila Belle (Lila because one if it's meanings is lilac, and we wantd another flower name, and Belle from my great-great-grandmother, Belle)

if we'd had a boy he would have been Jasper Carl.

My ds is Rio Justus
My grandpa was MaRIOn. I wanted to name ds Marion and call him Rio, but his Dad was against it. So, he's Rio. I really loved water-meaning names... felt very drawn to them, so I also thought about Kai (ocean). Ended up with Rio (Spanish word for river) b/c of the connection with my grandpa.

If he was a girl I had thought about Ani or Aubry.

If we had had a girl her name would have been Autumn Rose. I love the name Evangeline, and I also go back and forth wanting to add in my grandma's name (LaVeeda (sp?) Bernadine).

Adam Allen (Allen is my dad's name, Adam after Adam Petty, DH's all-time favorite Nascar driver)
Luke Nicholas (Nicholas is DH's name, Luke just because we liked it and need a 4-letter name to keep up the trend [Nick, Lisa, Adam...]). I'm not too happy with how popular Luke is already, though.

Our girl name is Hope Elizabeth (Elizabeth is both my and DH's grandmother's middle names).

my son is Rowan Nikolaos (niko-lay-ohs)
my daughter is Lila Jane
post #33 of 161
DS(3y) Skyler Lark- Named after his father
DS(6mo) Parker Charles- Middle name after my great uncle
If either of them had been a girl she would have been named Lotus Maryjane

middle name Blue.
we almost used that for judah blue instead of judah magnolia.

we told a friend of ours though, so we could get some feedback and he was silent for a moment and then said, "judah blue the whole football team"

which was crass. but it made us rethink the name! i probably would have used it anyway, but dp came up with magnolia a few days after she was born and we were really trying to decide on a name. i loved it.

Eleanor Elizabeth

My gramma's name is Eleanor and DH's grandma was Elizabeth so we decided to go the family name route.

DD's

Sierra Kendall (Kendall was for ex's favorite baseball player)
Maia Kendall (Maia after the Greek Godess of Healing and rebirth-she was born 10 months after Sierra died- Kendall is for Sierra)
Sage Kendall (Sage-all knowing, Kendall for Sierra)

DSD's

Shadow Chirstine Alias Marie (DH was 18 when Shadow was born, she is actually named for Shadow Stevens because they were watching Hollywood Squares when she was born!)

Eek, I hadn't thought of that!! : But I'm not sure many other people would, either...it's important to consider those kinds of things, you don't want to set your child up for teasing, but kids will tease each other over any and everything, right?

My DD is Nora Alexis, we liked both names and couldn't decide what to do. Dh didn't want her to be NN-d Alex(we have an Alex in the family). We went with Nora.

Baby that's in utero: more than likely Owen Anthony(u/s the other day revealed something really obvious although the tech didn't let me see, but said it was VERY obvious...hmmmmm). Or Ruby Jolene.

I've been thinking it's gonna be Owen Anthony the whole time, and I would love a little boy, especially with the middle name Anthony after his daddy. I would of course love a little girl with middle name Jolene after her mama too.

I wanted a Jolene so badly, but my dh wouldn't agree to it until our last and we ended up with a boy. So ours are

Vada Marie
Brynna Elise
Tea (pronounced Tay-uh) Kathleen
Moira Jane
Kyan Matthew
Ambria Mackenzie
Aslan Charles
Anakin Walker
