Emmy needs your help

Emmy
Baby Emmy is just about 10 weeks away from being here. She is so sad because she has no middle name. Okay, she probably isn't, but still. Our problem is that both Hope and Noah's names have tons of meaning for us. Hope is from Jer. 29:11, a scripture we hold dear, her middle name Louise was my grandmother's name, and my middle name as well. Noah's first name means peaceful one which is what we prayed for him, and Red is John's dad's initials. (Try to forget for just a minute that I tried to change his name to Charlie after he was born...) Emmy, however, is a name that we both just love. We have loved it since before Hope was born. We considered it for her, but we would have named her Emily and called her Emmy. Now, I am just a fan of naming her what we will call her. For her middle name, I am looking for some meaning. However, John's favorite middle name, Love, might be a bit much for me. I have a few I toss around, but none of them are "the one." Suggestions?

Oh, and my original thought of not naming her till we see her? Not happening. I need a name. If she is born and I think she is not an Emmy, we will change it then. Soooo... help me!

Would I sound like to much of a suck up if I suggested Emmy Kaye?

I was thinking Kaye also! You are smart to get this decided because we didn't choose Lindley's middle name until I was in labor in the hospital, and I'm not real crazy about what we chose.

Kaye is Riley's middle name isn't it? Not that that matters I don't guess.... what about a name from Paul's side of the family.. however, apart from "addie" I'm not sure you have much to pick from... ok.. so.. bad idea.. unless you did Adeline.. that's cute.. Emmy Adeline... or what about something that means "miracle" or "blessing"... since she is a miracle... and definitely a blessing... ok.. enough rambling.. that's my thought, for what it's worth. Love ya cuz!

At this very moment, I am huge fans of "tall girl" and "Jen"! Those are two brilliant young ladies! :)

But at the same time, one of my nieces has dropped significantly down the list of "favorites"! ... and I use to think she was so smart...

Just saying...

She could share a middle name with her future aunt ;)

I like Kaye, too. Though, Michele is an awesome name - especially when pronounced properly (Mee-shell). Just sayin'...

I vote for Kaye.

My 2nd choice would be Lynn - it was good enough for Jen's and my middle names.
