My dd1's name is Elizabeth Anne. I felt a more traditional name would be best to go with her name when dd2 was born. Her name is Kathryn Rose. I was planning to name her Katherine Rose so they'd both have the same number of letters in their names, but Kathryn is a family spelling so we went with that instead.

My son's name is Alastair. It means "defender of men". We were going to have another baby but lost it and we had pick out Aidan or Kylie, so we decided in their memory not to use those names again. And then my daughter's name is Kira and it means "Ruler of the people".


So apparently, we have a thing for STRONG names and names that start with A or K

Middle names.... we have 2 As, 2 Ms, and 2 Js (thats including parents) But the middle names werent on purpose.

lol If I did that, the kids would go home every day stamped from head to toe!

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

Nope We have 3 kinda "out there" names, and 3 pretty average names that aren't wildly popular nor unheard of in our parts. We're still deciding on our "tiebreaker."
Somehow, they all gel together.
