Show Us Your Life-Kid's Names
Today over at Kelly's Korner it is Show us Your Life-Kid's Names. I thought I would join in since I love naming babies :)
As you know (if you read my blog) our daughter's name is Isabella Grace. I originally had picked out the name Lilyann Eve. But after having several friends naming their baby girls some variation of Lily I decided against it. Isabella is not a family name, neither is Grace. I was not really "for" the name at first because I figured everyone would associate it with "Twilight" but after deciding against Lilyann, I decided it wasn't a big deal if people thought we named her after Bella on Twilight. I just like the name Grace so I put them together and they sounded beautiful :)
If we had been pregnant with a boy, his name was going to be Samuel Bradley. Samuel is a strong biblical name and that is what we wanted for our son/future son. Bradley is my maiden name and I have always wanted my son's middle name to be Bradley, to honor my father and his part of my family.
I did not name (of course) my step-children but I do love the uniqueness of their names.
