    My kid's father and I have decided, if our baby is a girl that I would nname her and if the baby is a boy, that he would name him.  And that is exactly what happened.

    Named after family and friends. 1 is named after my dh's cat from a long time ago. 2 are named just because ww liked the name.

    Caleb Joseph- first name hubby and I both went through a baby names book, made individual lists and then narrowed down to one we both liked.
    Middle name is both mine and hubby's grandfathers names so we killed two birds with one stone plus it allows is to call him CJ later on if we choose.
    Brent Matthews- hubby wanted to name out second boy after his father but his dads name is Alan and I didn't like it so we compromised and used his dads middle name Brent
    Middle name is my grandmothers maiden name

    All my children have a family name in their name whether its there first or middle or both in my third child's case. And then the other name is picked based on it's meaning. I do not believe in naming a child a name without a good meaning.

    Son's name was chosen after grandfathers. Daughters name I had already picked out before she was born but mom didn't like Savannah first. So I changed it to Emily Savannah. :) My son's name is William Laurence.

    #1- my sister chose his name and his middle name is after my brother.
    #2-we had to change his first name after SIL stole our original name. His middle name is after dhs uncle who passed away.
    #3- her name is soles her own. We each picked a name from each letter of the alphabet and if one matched we used it. The L name was a match!
    #4- was a text typo. I meant Canyon, said Cannon instead and we loved it!! His middle is after my dad!

     several years before I ever got pregnant I had a dream where I had a daughter named Alyssandra. I had never heard that name before and I just loved it so thats what I named her.
