Baby Names

Wordless Wednesday, see below.

Baby Names - we need your help! My husband says if we can find a good middle name, the first name will follow. Our middle names follow this trend: we use a word/name with a double meaning. Hence, "Raine" means "rain" and it means "counselor" (and probably a few other meanings in there, too). "Skye" means "sky" but can also mean "scholar". Raine and Skye are taken, by the way. So here's where you come in -

In the comments, list as many word names as you can. These can be words like Jewel, Sapphire, Ruby. Mist, Storm, Tempest, Snow. Juniper, Ash, Aspen. Or they can be virtues like Hope, Grace, Providence, Honor (but not chastity, LOL). If you're middle name wins, then you get bragging rights to say that you named our baby.

And one more thing: I found yet another great baby name blog. This one has Name of the Day. It's called Appellation Mountain. Also some other great baby name blogs linked in the side bar.

I let my dd who was almost 4 at the time pick out her sister's middle name. We sat with baby name books and read them off and on for months until she decided. Once she had her mind set, I couldn't talk her out of it, but it has turned out to be a great name. She loved feeling like she was really a part of the baby process and still feels proud when we talk about names. So maybe let the younger kids pick out the middle name.
