Baby Names?

So, everyone likes to ask if we have baby names picked out. The truth is, no, although baby names is a favorite subject of mine! John and I have very different baby name opinions. For example, I like girl names like Ruby and John likes names like Marie. Neither of us will give into the other, so a compromise involving a name that we are both happy with will be a challenge. As far as boys, we do a little better. We were set on Eli for a boy when we were expecting Hope, but we have both moved passed that now. We both like Harris right now, but we have a long way to go before we have to decide! Then, of course add in Jenn and Mimi's opinions...they really think we should name a boy John Henry! Your opinions are welcome too!

well, you already know the wonderful names i picked out. but, i can't post them on here. some folks might not appreciate my sense of humor as much as i do:)

No, you cannot name the baby John if it's a boy. That's like having a junior. NO JUNIORS! How about Michael for a boy and Michele for a girl?

No, no, no Michele... it's not a junior... it's a double name..
John Henry... not to be shortened!
Mimi

Michele said...

Okay, Mimi, as long as it's a double name and not a junior, I'll agree to that. Oh, and Wolffe votes for Lightening. He said that's for a boy or girl.

Lightning is interesting too...
We have a new child at the center named Ocean... I'm not sure Wolfe, John OR Jill would go for that either.
Mimi

Michele said...

Hmm..Ocean. That's definitely different.

They could just always name the new baby Kid. Yes, Kid Dyer has a nice ring to it. Tell you what, I'll let Mimi pick the name, but they Dyer family has to stay in Texas!

You will name the baby "Reha"....I have spoken.

I like John Henry...that has a great ring to it. I'm for that.

If you're going with Ruby, what about Caroline for the middle name? It just sounds so pretty...

Julie said...

Ooh, and I really like Noelle for the middle name, too (Ha!)! Ode to Julie who knew you both way back when. I am completely kidding!!!!
