So of course, as it was with Cash James, we had a boy name we both agreed upon. (And we're keeping it hush hush in case there is a NEXT TIME). Boy names are easy. At least in our family we feel they are. Girl names on the other hand are harder. Maybe because you want them to be cute & girly when they are little but then professional (you know, in case she becomes a lawyer) when they are older. Probably how STIFF & PROPER names came into play back in the day. Even the most grown up girl name has a cute 'n sweet nick-name hiding in there. Case in point my grandma MILDRED... can you imagine calling a tiny baby girl Mildred. Thus comes into play MILLIE. So super sweet you can almost see the pig-tails and smell the lolipops! Although my grandma is still that sweet so she still goes by Millie. =)
Anyhow, I digress... our number one name, which we have told some, mostly to mixed review just seems sweet. It ends in an "IE" and thus I worry she will never be taken seriously as an adult. Granted you can drop off the "IE", which would be a somewhat odd "given" name but could give her some street cred lol
As for her middle name i'm all about "family" middle names. So we are leaning towards RAE (maternal grandfather & uncle) or MAY (paternal great aunt). They both fit nicely with our choice, assuming we stick with the name most people don't love.
A good friend of mine told me that at the end of the day we need to be happy with our choice. Everyone else will just have to DEAL! I'm just trying to keep my yap shut so people stop "opinionating" on our almost 99% choice. I'm sure once they meet her, in all her sweet & precious glory they will see how perfect our choice is.
So if you have an IDEA feel free to throw it our way, but if you have a negative opion just remember one of hte golden rules:
IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL! =)
