    ISO: Kids to feature on my blog in September

    Hi guys! Some of you may remember my earlier post about this subject, but I'm back again looking for children to feature in the Baby Face Tuesday Feature of my blog! This feature tells about a child's name story, or the inspiration behind their name. Since it seems to have become such a popular feature, I'm thinking about doing a Baby Face Friday too! This means I'll need more babes to feature. If you're interested, I usually include:


    -A picture of the child. It can be from behind, or from when they were smaller, or however you'd like to do it. I"ll link some examples so you can see how other mom's have done it.

    -Their name story. Just type up how you arrived at that name for your babe, and I'll quote you word for word."

    -What they would have been named if they were the opposite gender (if you had one picked out)

    -What they were "almost" named (if you even had an almost name.)

    -Sibling names (if they have siblings.)

    Obviously, I will NOT include last names. And I don't even have to include the middle, if that makes you uncomfortable.

    If you have any questions, let me know! You can post name stories/pictures/questions here, or message them to me on Nameberry. Here are the links to the other Baby Face Tuesdays that have been done:

    Am currently expecting my first so I don't have a baby for the blog, but your blog is really cool. I checked it out the other day. Keep it up.

    I'll participate!

    Son's name: Konrad Wolfgang
    Naming story: As a name lover, it was interesting to me to marry a man named Klaus. His family loves using German names to honor their heritage. I hadn't thought about German names much but when we got pregnant it was pretty much a given that we would go that route. My husband wanted a Klaus Jr., but I never agreed as I find it confusing. So, we compromised and decided we would give our son a name that started with a "K" and we would also give him my husband's middle name, Wolfgang. We decided on Konrad, spelled the traditional German way. Klaus's great-grandmother's maiden name was Conrad, and although we never met her, it's nice to have a family tie in there. I also enjoy old musical movies and we often sing him "We love you Konrad, oh yes we do..." from the movie/play "Bye Bye Birdie." We have gotten a lot of compliments about how strong and unique his name is. And of course, how German it is as well We sometimes call him Konnie or Kon, but he's mainly Konrad. Oh! And he was born on New Year's Eve....and has been partying ever since

    If Konrad had been a girl, he probably would have been Wilhelmina Marie. Though we never really decided on that since we knew he was a boy. We were considering Wilhelmina, Louisa or Emmanuella.

    The only other name we had considered was Cormac/Kormak. We really liked the name but like I said, we wanted a name that started with a K. Although there actually is history of the name Kormak (a character in an Icelandic Poem) it just looked a little too "made up" for us.

    No siblings, just dogs named Rocco, Sally and Stella!
