So I was talking to my MIL yesterday and we were talking about weird names and how DH's sister spelled some of her kids names and I just kind of mentioned that DH is insisting that we carry on his MN of Alden if we have a boy and that I was ok with it. And she went into the history of how her family goes back to the Mayflower and that it was John Alden and Priscilla Mullins and they got married and were the start of the family in America and that Alden has been carried out all this time but there hasn't been any Priscilla's in the family for a while.

SO.. it sort of got me thinking. I never really DIDN'T like the name I just never 'loved it' or loved a combination of that and a middle name.. Any ideas? I'm still liking the name Naomi better but given the right combo it might grow on me and I absolutely LOVE bringing back old family names with lots of history.. so give me MN ideas please!

What about Naomi Priscilla? I think that sounds good and it's still keeping the MN tradition.

DITTO THIS! I LOVE Naomi as a first name, and think that adding Priscilla as the mn would give the name extra special meaning.

Oh this is going to be a tough decision... I love Naomi Priscilla but I also like Priscilla Naomi... ugh.

I also like the suggestion of Priscilla Jane & Priscilla May. Decisions, decisions! I should ask DH what he thinks, that'll narrow it down

I prefer Priscilla in the mn slot, because I can't stand the potential nn Prissy (even if YOU don't give it, some kid on the playground probably would!)

I knew a little girl named Priscilla and her nickname was Pila (pee-lah). She was so cute! But I do like Naomi Priscilla better.

This was actually one of my fears lol.. I was afraid that someone might give her the nn Prissy or Priss and IDK how well that would go off..

I really like Priscilla Naomi but I love Naomi as a fn too so it's a really hard choice.
