Category: Meanings of Baby Names
by Abby Sandel
They’re adopting baby number six in just a few weeks. Meaning matters, but so does fitting in with their family. Let’s help them find the right surname name choice for their new son!
We just got the call that we have been chosen to adopt a baby boy. We are thrilled but need to pick a name soon.
We have five children: sons Cohen Reid and Adler Josiah, and daughters Kacey Josephine Pearl, Scout Alivia Jordan, and Harper Evangeline Raea.
One of this baby’s middle names will be Ripley.
While we have always talked about the name Fletcher with either the middle name Davis or Rhodes, I’m not convinced we have the right name for this baby.
I’ve recently heard the name Boone and love it but not sure it fits with our short, two-syllable A last name.
Other names we love: Wilder, Booker, Jude, Flynn, Gable, Lennon, Nash.
The meaning of the name is important to us. We love that Fletcher means an arrow maker, a person who hits the target. I love that Boone means blessed as this baby is a gift.
We would like to avoid using the same first initial of any of our other children.
