When it comes to naming our children, we often look first to our combined family trees. Then we (and that means I) mash them up a little bit and play around with them to come up with something new but still, in my opinion, honoring. Thankfully, N loves this idea just as much as I do and we have enjoyed telling our girls about the people they were named after and why.
Seeing how I also like vintage names, it helps that family trees often have a rich variety of names from the past.
Clue #6: this baby will also have a name culled from our family tree
MG’s name honors 3 family members (it helps when two share a name!), Bea’s honors 4 (once again, 2 members share a name and one name is a mashup for the other 2).
This baby didn’t get quite as lucky in the family tree department but her name does honor someone significant to us.
Bonus Hint: although we didn’t necessarily choose it for this reason, one of her names has some Biblical roots
