You probably know I have been deciding on the name of my baby girl. Sorry I have been obsessing about it! First we wanted Everleigh, then Evelyn but the fact that she would have a sister named Madelyn was holding me back. I decided today to e-mail my aunt because I couldn't remember my grandfather's mother's name. She died when he was a teenager and he always talked about how Christmas made him sad because she died right around then. I wanted to know what her name was because I thought maybe I could use it as a middle name. My grandfather died this summer. He was THE MOST influential person in my life. He did so much for me, and was such a great person. I knew I couldn't use his name for my girl, so I thought his mother's name would be the next best thing and I was curious. I got my aunt's reply today and her name was EVA!!! I cannot believe it. I started crying because I feel like it was meant to be! We were stuck on a EV name and we just love Evie, but I have just always questioned Evelyn because of Madelyn. I had mentioned Eva before, but my husband wasn't sure. Now that he knows it was my grampy's mother's name, he is totally on board. My grampy loved him so much and did so much for him also. He is driving my grampy's old truck now which my grampy gave him when he was still alive. So it is just as meaningful to him. Anyway, I just thought I would share because I cannot believe it!! I know it is popular but so is Evelyn and Madelyn. Now to find a middle name!!
