Such cool names here - mdc mamas are so original!
Our girls are:
Sofia Rose (3) - She is not named specifically after anyone, we just loved the name. I did have an adopted grandma when I was little named Rose, and Sofie seems to have her sense of humor. Hmmm.... grandma, are you in there?
Ellen Marie (2 months) - Dh's grandma was Mary Ellen, and we have always loved the name Ellen, so we sort of flipped it. Also, my mom is Mary, and her sister's middle name was Marie, so it was a way of honoring them too. Ellen is the survivor of a twin miscarriage. We lost her sister, Amalie Joy, at 24 weeks. Amalie means "God's work," and we felt her presence in our lives, even for such a short time, was God's work and blessing to us.
If we are lucky enough to be blessed with another child, I am sure for some reason it will be a girl (maybe because I think Amalie will come back to us), and we are considering Lilly Joy or Isabella Joy. Or maybe we will shamelessly copy a name from this thread... so many beautiful ones!
