To celebrate her 80th post, Rachel from A Lasting Footprint is doing a Blog Hop of What is in a name? I thought that I would join in on this.
Even before I became pregnant with my 3rd child, I was always picking out names. I knew we would have a 3rd, but didn't know when. I admit the timing was a bit off, but we were still happy about going to have a little one around the house again.
As soon as I found out I pulled out all of my old baby name books and was going through them like crazy! Hubby is a hard man to please when it comes to picking out baby names together. It seemed like every name that I liked, he didn't. So, I decided to make a list of the ones I liked and have him choose the ones he like from my list. Needless to say it was short after he was finished with it, but the ones that he did pick from each gender I liked.
We knew that if we were having a boy the first name would be Owen and if we were having a girl the first name would possibly be Laken, but we had no picks for as middle name just yet. We thought we would have plenty of time to choose.
I had a few choices wrote down and he always laughed at me because I was always searching for a perfect name. Come to find out it was a good thing because little did we know our baby was planning on making an early appearance.
After she was born her daddy said he definitely wanted Laken so I had no argument about it. I said, but what would her middle name be? We were stuck on picking one out just right for her. I always liked the name Taylor and I thought it went well with Laken so there was her name that half daddy and half mommy picked out. It made it a lot more special having a name from each of us. To this day hubby will say, if we ever have another girl, I just don't think we can top the name
How about you? How did you choose your child(ren)'s name? What is the meaning of the your child(ren)'s name? Please share and link up here with me.
