If its a girl her name will be Calliope Jane, Calliope Mae, or Calliope Elizabeth. I like Calliope Jane
We will call her Calli for short. We really like how the names Ada and Calli sound together. Calliope has a special meaning for us, since DH has worked on steamboats and several of our favorite memories together have been us listening to the Calliope playing. We both love the name. And if we both love it, it stays. We did not find many names that we both loved last time.
For a boy, we seriously went to the hospital last time with the decision made that if the baby was a boy, it would be named Max Danger (rhymes with) Kohler. That is how much we could not agree on a boy's name.
DH's top picks are:
Briar (too thorny)
Boon (it means "gift" but COME ON...we live in Kentucky. It will forever be spelled Boone and every person the child meets will laugh because he's not wearing a coon hat)
Charles (after his uncle, I like this one)
My top picks:
Max (so, Danger was really the only joke part)
Kenton (DH's middle name)
I like Charles Kenton.
So, we will be needing advice about boy names.
Our rule is no first names on the social security list top 500 and one name has to be very very uncommon upon birth. Basically, one weird name, one normal name. DD is Adaline Sarah.
We never really did the career "test" on her, but for new mama's, here it is:
Dr. Adaline Sarah "Kohler"
Miss Adaline Sarah Kohler
Adaline Sarah Kohler, attny at law
Calliope Jane doesnt work as well on that test, but hey, if she wants to be a doctor bad enough and she doesnt think her name is worthy, name changes arent that expensive.
