Okay now that she is here dh and I are trying to figure out a name for her! We have settled on Meridian as a first name but I can't get him to agree with me on a middle name. I love Lore but he won't go for it. Help me with some ideas!! Here are my other babies names just in case it helps:

Layne Shannon (middle name is dh's middle name)
Liam Matthew (middle name is dh's first name)
Maren Montana (middle name is where we have always dreamed of living and since her birth we made it come true!)
Meridian ???

My middle name is Michelle but I don't want to use that and I can find any other family names either. I like L and M names obviously and I think 1 syllable names sound good with her name. Any help would be apprectiated! It is driving me crazy!!

~Lanie mom to Layne, Liam, Maren, Meridian, and Melora

Meridian is a beautiful name. Here are some ideas:

Meridian Leigh

Meridian Fay

Meridian Liam (using one of your first name ideas -- I think this sounds good)

Meridian Mae

Meridian Lore is AWESOME. Sorry I'm not of more help- I can't even name my own- but I think Lore sounds best with Meridian, too

Okay -- so while I couldn't sleep last night, I came up with a few more:

Meridian Jane (or you could spell it Jayne)
Meridian Grace
Meridian Lenore (or Leonora)


I've tried to stick with single syllables or the letters you like. Having boundaries to work with certainly helps -- good luck, I'm sure you'll find something (Although, my husband claims we'll end up calling our baby "Boy" or "Girl" for at least three months )

Ugh! I know! I know! Maybe I will just have to put my foot down! I really like some of the ideas too. I had thought about Lea, Sienna, and Sierra but they just don't feel right! I am going to talk to dh again tonight about it. I bet he will give me my way if I push a little

I think he will give in if you tell him how many of your MDC pals like it the best.
