Sorry if this is bloggy. We don't know sex of the baby yet but I'm trying to narrow down my choices. Pretty sure a boy would be Malcolm George (my grandfather, DH's grandfather), nn Cole.
I'm torn with girl names. I've always thought my daughter's mn would be Ruth (my mn, my mom's fn, my maternal grandmother's name). Addison is meaningful to me (it's a combo of my mom's maiden name and my maiden name) but DH would want to honor his family with mn, so we thought Rose (his mom's mn). We're both worried that Addison (nn Addie) is too popular.
I also like the name Annabel (no family significance) which would allow me to keep Ruth as the mn.
Is Addison too popular? Screw popularity and go with two names with family significance? Are there any other 3 syllable classic-style "A" girl names that I'm missing?
Addison Rose or Annabel Ruth?
