So, this time around, I think we are going to follow the same pattern of using a biblical name first, followed by a family name for the middle name.
In case you haven't noticed, I'm a HUGE NERD WHEN IT COMES TO NAMES.
My parents were certain I was going to be a Kristen until I was actually born, and then they changed their minds and gave me the name Kathryn, with my Dad's first name as my middle name (don't worry, his name isn't Bill). And, I recently discovered I was born on St. Catherine's Day, which is kind of cool. My brother's name is Joshua Paul, and J. Paul's run on my mom's side of the family.
So, at least the nerdiness is somewhat inherited, yes?
How about you? Do you (or did you) have a process when you think of names you like, or do you pick what sounds good?
Of course, I've learned that it's the baby that makes the name, not vice versa, so in the long run, the process doesn't really matter. You could name your kid John Doe and they could be the most unique, successful, pivotal character in history. Or you could name your kid Neveah Jayden Diamond Gweneviere Prefontaine ... and they could be a total dud.
BUT, I still like to hear how people come up with names! So, do share, please!
Have a lovely day.
