How did you choose your baby's name?

Hi Beauty Connects!

 

It must be the time of the year where the 'most popular' name lists are being revealed. It got me thinking about how hard it must be to choose a name that will last your child's lifetime. 

 

I'd love to know what name you chose and how you made your decision?

Re: How did you choose your baby's name?

We really struggled to decide on a name and when I was in labour the midwife asked what his name was, my other half said George so that was it he was George.

 

He was born the same year as Prince George so I was worried that it would end up being really common but he’s the only George in his year at school so it turned out ok.  And he loves his name because I have an uncle named George (he’s 85) so he likes to be Little George and Big George.

Re: How did you choose your baby's name?

I chose both my boys names without any name books or suggestions from friends or family I wanted a name to last their entire lives without going in & out of fashion I thought a king or a biblical name would be suitable. I chose Christopher James & Nicholas Richard

Re: How did you choose your baby's name?

We coulnd't agree at all. Then when he was born I looked at my husband and said "what about Draven?" and he agreed, finally lol - we love the movie The Crow, where he plays 'Eric Draven' lol I remember when I was 15 saying Draven would make a cool name.

Then a couple of years later I had another son, we agreed on Brandon. Ironically Brandon Lee played Eric Draven in The Crow. That's not actually why we called him Brandon, that was the only name we could agree on. I wanted River and he wanted Cyrus. But everyone assumes we must be massive Crow fans, I just let them think that's why they're called Draven and Brandon lol.

I had a loss last January, we don't know if it was a boy or a girl, but because I found out about the pregnancy on boxing day, my son Draven affectionately named her Holly. He said she was a girl. We'll never know but I figured there's no harm in letting him think that if he wants to.

So we also, sort of had Holly too.

Re: How did you choose your baby's name?

My Partner and i decided when i was pregnant we didnt want to find out the sex of the baby. I deep down would of loved to have a little girl and my Partner wanted a little boy, so we came to an agreement. If the Baby was a Boy i could name him, If the Baby was a Girl he could name her. For my boys name i picked my Great Grandad and Grandad's name, my partner picked his name from our favorite TV show and with some influence my Great Grandmothers middle name. July 2017 i gave birth to my beautiful Daughter Elena.

Re: How did you choose your baby's name?

My husband and I, being Christians, loved some biblical names! In ancient times names were significant because of their meanings! We chose 

 

Timothy Luke

Matthew James

 

If they had been girls they would have been

 

Hannah Rebekah (obviously if they were both girls we would have had another option lol!)

 

They were born in the 90s and I've thought, that if we had 2 girls now I would suggest

 

Elizabeth Mary (after my mum and my hubby's mum) or Isabella Maria - the Spanish version of those names because they sound beautiful in Spanish 

Lillianna May if we had another girl Lilian was my maternal grandmother, so it would have been a nod to her and May was my paternal grandmother whom I never knew! My hubby didn't really know his grandparents!

 

Anyway the above is a moot point as I'm not having anymore children! Lol!
