If my husband wouldn’t have pushed the name Paityn so much, I honestly would have never considered it last pregnancy. As in, it would not have even made my very long notebook list that I was constantly adding to (see below). I came up with quite a variety, trying really hard to think outside the box and give this baby something especially unique. I did not want one that was topping the list this year’s most popular baby names.
But the husband nixed most of them, including my most favorites.
So since my days of naming babies are gone, I thought I would loan them out to anyone searching. After all, Paityn’s middle name was found (see, stolen) on a fellow blog. (Any guesses where I got her middle name??)
Boys – this list is of course short since we stopped adding to it once we found out we were having a girl. I don’t know what Guy would have thought, but in my mind if we had a boy, his name would most certainly have been Declan.
Girls – My top two contenders were: Millicent Lux (Millie for short) and Harley Noelle. Guy hated them both. When we finally decided on Paityn Luella, we were between that and Harper Lux. There are so many great girl names out there that you almost can’t go wrong.
Girl Middle names:
I’d love to know if my list inspired any of your children’s names!
