Maaike Grace.

It took us over ten months to decide on her middle name It's hard to find something that fits with Maaike and our last name!! Maaike was the only name we could agree on, too. I liked the name Schuyler for a boy but DP hated it. I also really love the name Shiloh, but couldn't get past thinking of Angelina Jolie's baby!

I decided it wasn't worth fighting over (though it does bug me that there's the automatic assumption babies get the father's last name), and since I'm not a fan of hyphenated last names, she got his. But I'm always intrigued to see people who buck the system...
I know this is an old post, but I just saw it now, so I'll answer the question even though it wasn't directed at me! It always bugged me too that babies always get the father's last name, and I always wanted to have my kids take my name. When I brought this up with my partner, he told me he wanted his kids to take his name, so we compromised - boy babies would have my last name as a second middle name and take his name, and girl babies would have his last name as a second middle name and take my name.

Anyway, my little man's name is Emmet Thomas Mylastname Hislastname.

There are so many awesome names in this thread!

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!

Mariska Katherine XXX

Mariska and Katherine were two of her great grandmothers. Mariksa is an eastern european diminutive of Mary. I got pregnant on the first try at the ripe old age of 38. I had just returned from a trip with my husband to Greece. While in Athens, I went to a church reputed to be the place the Athenian women go to pray for a baby. It is called Aiya Dynamis for Mary's divine power to help childless women conceive. I lit a candle and asked for a healthy baby to love. I'm sure my Jewish husband didn't have the Holy Mother in mind when we named our baby girl, but I felt I owed her this tribute.

What beautiful names! I've enjoyed this thread.
