Hey there berries!
We welcomed Magnolia Irene into the world on 12-12-13.
Nameberry gets a lot of credit for her name, as at various points in the pregnancy, I was pretty obsessed with the...
I've heard of a set of twins named Leslie and Liesl. Seems so wrong to me. First, because it's all the same letters, but switched around! Also, because the style/ethnicity seems mismatched...Liesl...
Old, old thread, but I'm so happy because I just figured out my ace in the hole: DH and his sister (the only kids in their family) both have mn names after grandparent's on their mother's side (ie,...
I'm sorry, but I have to agree with those who said that your (husband's) cousin has as much right as you to use the grandmother's name. It IS her own grandmother. Plus, these kids will be 2nd...
@tfzolgahdr, thanks for the suggestions. A lot of those are already our long list, so you definitely caught my style! I particularly like Judah, Jude, Isaiah, Simeon, Ephraim, Jeremiah, Ezekiel,...

I have some sympathy for those who question whether or not to vax. I'm fairly crunchy, and at one time thought I may want to avoid some vaccinations for future kids. I've personally never gotten a...
Curious what people think about honor names. How much is it necessary to be "fair" in your honor names? For example, if you name one kid after a relative on one side, do you feel compelled to honor...
Hm, thanks for the feedback and ideas. I'd be interested in the double mn, but 3 reasons make it seem not ideal for us:
1) With our 2-word, 10-letter, 3-syllable ln, its LONG! Reuben Daniel Bruce...
I seem to be on a cycle with this pregnancy (the first): getting hooked on names for a week or two, and then dropping them altogether for a month or two. So, we're cycling into the name obsession...
I prefer Iris. To me, it is more wearable for a girl or woman of any age. Ivy strikes me as either 1) an adorable little girl or 2) a spunky, possibly bad@ss twenty-something. But I have a hard time...
Hm, I never would have guessed this way of dividing the two.
My sister's name is Kirstin and we pronounce it "KEER-stin". We are not Scandanavian; she's actually named for a German 2nd cousin. (My...
Honestly, I'm trying to decide if you're spoffing off all the debates about India.
Glad to see that everyone is in agreement that it's a bad idea. But interesting to me that this feeling is so...
Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences! It's interesting to hear about how people feel differently about things like letting others hold the baby, having a lot of visitors.
Since this is...

I've wondered this exact thing, as Magnolia is our top girl's name (due in Dec, gender unknown)....are we southern enough to legitimately use it? I definitely think it evokes Southern imagery because...
To clarify: I think my particular situation is fairly under control. It's difficult to figure out since we are currently long-distance and the MIL is not a great emailer, but it seems like she may be...
So, I am due with our first on Dec 18th...which means our full term "due window stretches" all the way from 37 wks right around Thanksgiving to hitting 42 wks on New Years Day! Talk about...

I'm only pregnant with my first, but had to respond because your situation is EXACTLY what happened to my parents: 3 kids intentionally pretty close together, a 4th "oops", and then "oops" twins! The...

That's a good way to do it. I've definitely heard stories where, even in multiple u/s, the baby is not in a great position to figure it out. With ours, we told the tech that we didn't want to know...

I started a very similar thread just about a month ago, so you can check out all the responses here: To Find Out the Sex or Not?
We ended up deciding NOT to find out. I wrote a more long-winded...
I have a close female friend named Taryn, so it's weird for me to imagine it for a girl. But it's not a particularily feminine name, and with a spelling like Taran I can easily see it on a guy.
I know a couple young Silas boys, so I think it is getting a bit more popular. Especially among conservative Christians looking for Biblical names that are not overdone. However, I doubt it's in...
I would keep Alice Helena, personally. It's a gorgeous, classic name that fits so well with her brothers.
Even though I'm familiar with Saoirse from nameberry, it's still super confusing to me: I...
Paternal are German, so always Oma & Opa.
Paternal great-grandfather was Opa Peter. (His first name, I guess to distinguish him from regular Opa.) The grandmother had died long before I was born....

It is possible to have triplets vaginally, though this woman did end up getting induced:
