i want to name for my grandmother, but we're having a really hard time. Dh agrees that it would be lovely to honor her memory. My family is jewish and she's not been named for yet.. she's been gone almost 10 years. there have been 4 babies born in our family, all named for other loved ones.
she was really one of my favorite ppl. A true Matriarch. At 84 she was still knitting and going out for lunch with the girls. She was affectionately known by some as "big red" cuz she always had her hair dyed a bright shade of red. lol.
i couldn't pronounce gramma as a wee one and called her "Memar" and the entire family called her that from then on.. all the cousins and even her own children (my father and his brothers and sister) refer to her to their children to this day as Memar.
Her name is confusing. It was actually Min. (not minnie or minerva. just Min). She changed it to Mildred. Her Hebrew name is Micha.
so far the only name we like (ultrasound says we're having a boy . yay! ) is Miles. And tho dh says its "ok" neither of us is totally thrilled. He vetoed Micah, Matthew, Michael, Morgan, Monroe... we've been thru so many names already.
With Zoey we both knew it was perfect. She is Zoey Arone (Arone was his mothers name) and it worked beautifully. So he wants to wait for the Perfect name to hit us and tho i do too... i want some ideas.
as unique as i like to be, thats how traditional he is. He likes strong traditional male names. Zachary, Nicholas, Thomas...
and i like things to be a bit more unique.
can you help? Just list out your favorite M names for me so i can go thru them with him?
i really want to name for her. If it doesn't happen i'll be a bit sad. But we do both need to love the babes name.
Hey, at least we're off the "i want a Thomas duncan Jr." thing. LOL
thanks for your help
