NOTD Montuesday

Sorry, I haven't been good at keeping this up so this is for yesterday and today. :)

Instead of picking a bunch of names that no one likes today, let's play a different game.

Surprise!!! You had no idea you were pregnant with twins and just gave birth to a little girl and a little boy. You've got to pick their names today. What do you name them?

In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!

Re: NOTD Montuesday

  • If it was 100% up to me with no input from the husband, I'd have a Hannah and a Gideon (or maybe Adam...).

    OMG @rockabye Another person who likes Gideon.  I love that name, but once there's H's input it would be a no go.

    My picks would be James and Brielle.  Or London and Lincoln, but when it comes down to it I probably wouldn't be able to name them that.

    Same here.. I'm quite certain DH would veto it too. :( But that's ok!  A girl can dream! I tend to love the unusual ancient Biblical names... Gideon, Ezra, Boaz, Zechariah, etc ...

    I tossed a few of them out to him last year when I was doing lesson planning for Sunday School.  He told me I was nuts, and to never recommend them again.  Even though he loves the name Grace, and I keep telling him that's a biblical name.

  • In my head, I feel like I would want to do Matthew and Madeline for boy/girl twins. But I don't think I ever actually would.

    As of today, it would probably be Matthew and Daphne.
