Name game

January 30, 2009

Okay friends, Steph and I are still in our “can’t figure out what to name our child” slump.  I’m asking for suggestions.  Real ones.  Well meant, at least.  Lizzie’s suggestion today was “Princess Sleeping Beauty.”  That could work, but what do you use for a middle?  Ellie’s suggestion was “Toys.”  “Ellie, pick up your toys please… no, not the baby, put the baby down!”  So that’s a no go.

Whattaya got?

p.s.  We’d prefer a name with a Hebrew origin (Elizabeth and Eliana are both Hebrew) and in a perfect world, the first and middle names would add up to five syllables (like her sisters).

    Oh, I LOVE thinking about baby names! Not sure if you’re wanting to stick with the ‘E’ names but here are my favorite Hebrew origin names beginning with that letter:

    Edria (AY-dri-uh): mighty

    Esther: star

    Ellysa (eh-LISS-uh): pledged to God

    Emma: industrious

    Etana (ee-TAHN-uh): strong (girl version of Ethan)

    Eva/Eve/Ava: life

    Here’s a search engine where you can search for names based on gender, starting letter, and origin

    I am gonna go with Tamara for the first name. Its pretty awesome if I do say so myself. It means palm. And a palm is a symbol of life and rebirth and hope. Also in the “JMAR” cards they sell at Christian book stores and stuff Tamara means “perfection”. So as you can see it would be a perfect name…hahaha

    Jeana, thanks for all the ideas!

    Tam, it’s not a bad name. I’m just wondering if there’s any bias in your suggesting it? 🙂

    Abigael (or the traditonal Abigail) Grace…iut gives a nod to those two baby girls whom you knew and rocked and looked after back in the day.
    Yeah, I know, I am trying.
    You could always fall back on Laura but it comes from Latin.
