What's in a name?

Well, for those of you too lazy to count, there were actually more pink there than blue. Thus, our joyous news that after 3 boys in a row and nearly 7 years, we get to add a little girl to our family again! It is a good thing we are on a tight budget or I would have spent nearly every day of the past week out shopping! : )

While we are all thrilled to death that this is a girl (except Jacob who still occasionally seems to think it's actually a boy in there), the catch comes in the form of the name. I know, we hashed out the middle name thing not too long ago, and believe it or not, Aaron actually seems ok with the middle name Olwen now. Which, by the way, I very much appreciate. One more reason that he is the greatest husband ever! The catch comes in the child's actual first name. You know, the one everyone actually USES. We've talked, thought, poured over name books, and even actually allowed suggestions this time around. We are no where near close! He has a few favorites, I have a few favorites, none of them happen to overlap at all. fun times. But hey, the good news is that there are still likely at least 4 1/2 months left in which to hash this one out. With any luck, little "Seven" will have a real name by the time she gets here!

It's funny b/c I always struggle with naming our kids, but for other people I have tons of names. Make sure it fits with our last name too, since we haven't married Alec off yet : )

I'm actually beginning to warm up to the name Seven, but too bad the initals pose the same problem as Sydney did :o)lol!

Yes, you've still got a good 4 months to go to decide on a name...
We have at most 6 weeks and we still can't agree on a name for this poor kid...
Congrats on another girl though, that is exciting!

So...is Leilani off the table, this time around??? ;)

I had a friend over here who (if she had a seventh child) was going to name him/her Seiben...Seven in German:) It had a nice ring to it...but I guess SOB would be a bad set of initials to have! heh
