How is the process going? Anyone still deciding on names? I know everyone has their own style/taste, but what makes you choose a name? Do you and your partner have certain rules or traditions you follow?
My/our rules are pretty simple:
1. No ukneeque or trendeigh names or spellings 2. Must be classic/timeless -- Victorian, Edwardian, Regency era, from classical literature, poetry, film or music -- the arts (but still able to be easily pronounced and spelled) 3. Two middle names (started it with my eldest, and it only made sense to continue the tradition) 4. Must match the general tone and feel/vibe of the other kids' names 5. There must be at least one family member's name
Kids' full names:
Grace Elizabeth Katherine Evangeline Lily Marie Duncan Lewis Garibaldi Henry Allen Greyson
And this little one, Ruby Eléonore Rose.
Ruby after a maternal great-grandmother, and it's also DH's birthstone, and red is our favorite color. I've always adored the name Eleanor, but love the French spelling. Rose is just classic and timeless, and I fell in love with it after I saw Titanic. Had she been a boy, Theodore Westley Corgiat. I have been reserving Theodore for years now, and Westley is the main protagonist in The Princess Bride, one of my and DH's favorite movies. Corgiat is a family surname. The naming process has always been easy and quick. We were pretty set on Ruby when we found out the sex at 11 weeks.
