Babe came a month early on 12/18/07. Julia means youthful. My last name is her middle name. Her initials are JOC. Husband wanted to call her Harriet (ugh), we thought we had another month to decide. The name Julia wasn't even on our list.
I really enjoyed this thread while looking for names!

My boy is Ryan James (James is my husbands first name and he also has HIS dad's first name as his middle name)
This baby will be Zane Patrick or Anna Katherine

Miranda Ann

We had the boy name picked out since I was about 3-4 months pg: Logan Matthew...Logan from Dark Angel & X-Men (that's embarrassing to admit!) and Matthew is a family name.

The girl name, however, took us until 2 days b4 she was born to agree...and even then it was more like, "we can think about it this week"...we thought we had a week to think about it even tho she was only born a day b4 her due date b/c I had a very vivid dream that she would be born on Friday (she was born at 3:40 am on Tuesday). DH disliked all the names I suggested, but only really suggested one himself: Amanda...and I don't care for it (it's already a name used on both sides anyway).

Her middle name, Ann, is...
short version: after my mom, who passed away 24 years ago.
long version: in addition to my mom, my favorite grandmother was Anna (the name I REALLY wanted to use as a first name), the lady that introduced me and DH was Ann, and I LOVE Anne Shirley!!!

We have a Logan also, but ours is Logan Robert (Lastname)
Logan was a beautiful Irish name I loved (I am 1/4 Irish) and Robert is after my Grandfather, who took me in at 15 after life with an abusive stepfather became too much to bear. He was a great man who left us 10 years ago after a 12 year fight with cancer. He would have loved Logan.

My girl is Bree McKenna LastName. McKenna is my maiden name, and we got her first name from a baby book. As soon as we came to a name we both agreed on, we shut the book. Had she been a boy, we liked Casey McKenna LastName.

We didn't know until she was 3 months old that there was a character from Desperate Housewives named Bree. I don't know if we would have picked it had we known that - but the name fits her perfectly so maybe!

DD is Evelyn Marie, Evelyn b/c we the name and Marie after my grandmother

DS is Jasper Morey, Jasper b/c we like the name (and a very cute boy named Jasper who we met briefly on a plane trip in Scotland convinced dh that he did indeed want children years before our first child was conceived); Morey is the name of a lake where dh spent much of his childhood, and where we all spend time now.

If we have more children, Georgia (after dhs grandfather), Dorothea (after dhs grandmother), Perry (after my grandfather), and Ezra (just like it) are all in the running

Happy with my DH, 2 kids, dog, fish, and frogs

Our DD is Claire Florence...Claire because it is the only name we could agree on, Florence is DH's grandma's name. She is the child of a million nicknames: Claire Bare or C-Flo being the most popular.
Next baby will be either Henry or Iris.
I LOVE the names of the babes you mamas have posted here!

I love Olive! Did you ever decide on a middle name?

Our little one is Daisy Josephine. Itty bitty blonde/blue, and walking at 9 months.

My son's name is Gabriel Edward

Gabriel - because he's our little angel (awww) and DH and I loved the name because of a character from a book/video game series he introduced me to when we were dating.

Edward- for DH's cousin who was killed in a plane crash two years ago.

Avery Truitt LastName

I've loved Avery since I was in college, and Truitt is my husband's grandfather's name. The day we met and he told me his grandpa's name, I decided that if we ever got married and had a little boy his first or middle name would be Truitt - I love it!

I still love Avery, although I am somewhat tired of saying "Avery...he's a boy".

ETA - I want six kids, and if we end up having 3 boys and 3 girls (which would be ideal for me, but who knows what'll actually happen) I have them all named. Boys will be Avery Truitt, Alek James, and Auden Chase, and girls will be Aubrey Claire, Abigail Kate, and Ariana Elise. All the "A's" were unintentional, by the way - every name I love just happens to start with an "a"!

Stacy
Wife to K, Mama to Avery and TWINS due in September!
