Ok so last night I got my girl's name. I have not run it by my dh b/c he doesn't want to talk names until the last couple of months. Eden Dawn. Dawn is my middle name and my SIL's. I really like it. Now I am not so sure if I like the boys name I had, Ethan Alexander. I still might have to work on that one.

Mama to Noah- 05, Eden - 07, Isabella -09 and Cade -11

My DD's name is Gabriella, but we all call her Gabby.

I was thinking Tabitha if baby is a girl, we would call her Tabby or Tabby Cat.

Would it be cruel or cute to have Gabby and Tabby??

Tika, with similar nicknames like that you'd probably end up calling them by the other name all the time! My grandmother named her 3 sons all very similar names and they never got called by the right name until she had cycled through the wrong ones

I have to go with the majority on this one -- plus, if you were yelling up the stairs for a kid, they'd never be able to tell who you meant...


I'm likin' Helena right now, but dh says he's pronounce it "Helayna." :

I think I like it. London. I like London Skye W.....Ayla's mn is Star and I'd like there to be some connection there between the two girls, you know?

I guess the only thing that bothers me is........well.....I've never been to London, England. Never really aspired to, either, 'cept maybe for some fish n' chips.

London Skye......hmmm.
Ok Grapejuice mama, you arent going to believe this but today we agreed on London as the middle name for our girl. If she is a girl.
How freaking weird is that??????
Our Sofie's middle name is Paris so we thought it would be kind of cool to use a city name again for a middle name. Only problem we have with it is that we, like you arent really fond of the city itself...but London is definitely on the list as of now. And the list is short. Really short. We have decided on the first names for sure-both for girl and boy.

Happy mama to my four girls S 8.15.02 , L 04.25.06 (gone at 36 weeks ) and L 3.10.07.And another rainbow! Baby C has arrived 10.26.10!

The name London is beautiful. All these names are great! I love MDC because I'm surrounded by such creative ladies who appreciate unique names, find beauty in old-fashioned names and love names that have special meaning.

I've been hoping for another boy, but now I'm not so sure because I've found a beautiful name for a little girl. Carys Lily. I believe Carys is pronounced 'Kerris' and it means "To love."

If it's a girl I want Prudence Olivia with the nn Poppy. My DD's name is Liberty. . I'd kind of like her to be tempered by some Prudence.

If a boy Henry Oliver. Henry was my Pepere's name.

Be, happy momma to Liberty (12-31-02), Henry (3-17-07) and Prudence (7-02-09)

Julia Katherine - Julia just because we love it and it is easy to spell and Katherine is my Mom's name and my confirmation name.

Thanks to you all for your honest opinions about the Tabby and Gabby deal. Going back to the drawing board.

I love London too. Just an fyi, though. There is a disney show (the suite life of zach & cody) that features an air-headed heiress named London. I doubt the show will go down as a great, but I always like to know this stuff... can you imagine being named Elvis the year before he hit it big?



Anywho...I'm still secretly in love with Isabella...I'm so sad that it's so ridiculously popular.

I have refined my wish list for names....

Anna Kathryn Pearce L__________ (and would call her Kate), for my grandmothers

John Pearce Frederick L_________ (Frederick is my GF's name), and would call him John or John Pearce

I suppose I should think of a couple more in case I have twins in there!

It's the first day back to school (I'm a special ed teacher) and so far, so good....I'm drowsy and feel fat, but I want to keep why to myself for 3 more weeks until I hit the 2nd trimester. I am going to be a bridesmaid at my brother's wedding next weekend, and hope it won't be too obvious to my family!
