Confession: I'm one of THOSE girls that daydreams about names that sound good with HIS last name, even though we're not even close to that point in our relationship... friendship... acquaintance... Anyway, I hope Mr. Man'll have his own well-thought-out opinions (do guys think about this like girls do?), but if not, this is what I've got. I even found middle names. I focused on meaning as that's becoming important to me. But rhythm factored in (Mr. Man has a one syllable last name); I avoided one-syllable middle names. "Why 10?!" b/c I want 5-9 kids. Even with 4 in mine I felt we had more love to give. But I never want to be the parent who doesn't have time to KNOW/LOVE/CHERISH each child uniquely; I've seen families with 9 who do this- others not quite, so we'd play it by ear. But 10, being in the teens, seems too extreme (for me). I'm a fan of adoption, too! There is nothing more beautiful than second chances : ) Obviously Mr. Man will have a say but he's not here yet... - Created by muchachacristiana
Grace, Truth. My mother's middle name is Ann, my middle name is Ann, and I'd like to somehow pass along that tradition. And Elethea is a beautiful name. [note: I do not know Mr. Man's middle name- YET! -but obviously I'd love to pass on names from his side, too]
Free man, Blessed peacemaking. Charlotte is one of those names I flip-flop with. It's pretty but it's becoming too popular.
Fortunate Protector, Horn. I love the name Cornelius. And Edmund is the younger sounding version of the proper but sturdy Edward. I'd call him Eddie.
Peaceful Ruler, The Lord is good. I've always liked both of these names. I think I'd call him Fred. Yes, a nod to the Weasley.... : (
Praised, Blessed. I love the name Jude. I think if I had to pick ONE favourite it'd be Jude. Plus, my name and Mr. Man's name both start with J... Alliteration!
Renowned Warrior, The Lord is Just. This, too is a nod to another "obsession." I'm a huge fan of all things C.S. Lewis.
Radiant shining one, The Lord is my light. Love this combo! Not sure why Phoebe has taken a back-burner lately, but paired with this newby it's been revitalised for me.
Rose, Grace. I'd call her Rosie, or Rose. Such potential! Plus her last name would start with an R; even more alliteration ; )
Prophetess, Who is like The Lord. I'm not usually one for turning boy names into girl names but Micah does sound a little feminine.
Gift of God, Belonging to The Lord. Theo!!! Need I says more?!
