Hi Ladies, I'm new to this stuff so I'd appreciate any help or advice! I just recently found out I'm expecting and I'm sorting through names (which I've basically been doing since I was a 5 year old playing house..haha) Anyway, here are my thoughts. I'm big on involving names of family and friends as part of my baby's name, so hopefully you can help.
The only girl name I really really prefer is Ella, because it is my great grandmothers name. But I'm stuck on middle names! I'd even use Ella as a middle name if I could come up with a good first name fit. I would also love to include my mother in some way if possible. (she passed away when I was 15). Her name was Traci Lynn, and unfortunately I don't particularly like either of those for my baby's name...does anyone know of maybe any alternate names or anything?
For boys, I like the first names Keegan, Jack, Braxton, amongst others. Here's my problem: a dear friend of mine just died recently in a car accident. His name was Nathan, and I'd love to use that as a middle name in honor of my friend. But I'm having trouble with first names! Help.
If you don't like the way Traci or Lynn sound with Ella, do you know anything else special to your mom? Like her favorite flower? Rose would be beautiful with Ella and if it just happened to be her favorite flower then you could tie it in that way. Or some other type of connection. Or a longer form of Lynn.
Good Luck! I would also love to use family names... but don't have many that I could do.
