So I am a major planner. I like to plan my life and events months in advance where possible. James and I officially got engaged after we had picked out the names of our kids. I have planned the birth and family arrival schedule of this coming baby. I have started planning MacKayla's baptism (and she only turns 7 next month.) I know what I want to do for Christmas this year. I have to have my life organized or I feel weird.
So what is the problem then you ask? I am at a loss as to what we are going to name this baby if it is a girl. We had two girl names picked out, we were lucky to come up with a great third girl name that we love. But I cannot come up with another one that I love. I am hoping that this means that this is my little Johnny and that is what I can't find a girl name.
The only name that we like right now is Elizabeth. However we have a cousin that is Bella's age that is named Elizabeth so they would only be a couple years apart. I thought of using Elizabeth as a middle name, but then the only first name that I liked with it is Hannah, and that is the exact name of another cousin. I don't think anyone in the family would really care if we shared a name, but I kinda want the kids to all have their own name.
So here is where I need help! I need ideas for girl names. We are not overly picky but we have a few "rules." We don't like overly trendy names. The name needs to fit with the other girls, MacKayla, Annika and Arabella. It needs to be a more gender specific name, I am not too big on a name that could go for either sex. I would kinda like something somewhat classic. It also can't be anything that James can negatively associate something with (and this one is hard, MacKayla would have been MacKenzie, but it reminded James of Spud Mackenzie, the Budweiser dog.) So if you have any great names that you are willing to share, please share your ideas. I can't say that we will go with it, but maybe we will, or maybe it will help point us in the right direction.
