    Exclamation URGENT: referral for adoption expected this week and we still don't have a name!!!

    We are adopting a girl from China and we should receive our referral in days....and we still do not have a name! Everytime we think we have it figured out, it falls apart for one of us!
    What makes is hard, I think is that she will be our 5th....and trying to find a name we like that 'goes' with the other names is apparently tough!

    Siblings names are
    Ethan Blake (he is a TEEN so we used this name way before its major jump in the list!)
    Reece Caleb
    Nathan Jeremiah (he is called Jeremiah)
    Tess Eliana


    Name meanings are important to us.... doesn't have to be the most AWESOME meaning but we do not want a negative meaning. And we want at least one of the names to be biblical or at least a "God" meaning like Eliana.

    SOME names we've considered are Meredith, Audrey, and Annalise.

    We are just so muddled now we need some outside opinions and help!
    Thanks!

    Naomi Annalise is really pretty & I think it goes really well with the other names. I really love Tess & Naomi together.

    Are you planning on keeping her Chinese name as her middle name? (personally I advocate for this since it's part of the child's culture, but I can't force you to keep her name) If so you might want to see if the name flows well with her name before choosing.

    Some other names that mean god:
    Abrielle - god is my strength
    Arielle/Ariella - Lion of god
    Amaris - promised by god
    Evana - god is gracious
    Giovanna - god is gracious
    Michelle - who is like god
    Elise - god is my oath
    Elizabeth - god is my oath
    Isabelle -god is my oath
    Liana - my god has answered

    Hannah
    Leah
    Maren (variant of Mary)
    Abigail
    Lydia
    Natalie

    Eden
    Madeline
    Chloe
    Eva
    Tabitha
    Phoebe
    Shiloh
    Eliza
    Gabrielle
    Jordan
    Evangeline
    Ayla
    Sadie

    Some non-biblical names:
