Thursday Thirteen #11....Baby Names I Like BUT Jake - Not So Thrilled.

As you will see, I like names that are a little different. Jake likes very traditional names. It takes us almost the entire 9 months to decide. Please leave any name suggestions you may have for us.

1. Willow or Willa (girl)
2. Sage (girl)
3. Holden (boy)
4. River (boy)
5. Ruby (girl)
6. Eva (girl) - my Grandmother's name - he doesn't like it.
7. Veruca (girl)
8. Verona (girl)
9. Blaze or Blaise (boy)
10. Levi (boy)
11. Greer (girl)
12. Lucy (girl)
13. Violet (girl)

IMO (not that you asked for it!) the best girl name there is Eva. I like it esp. with the family connection!
Veruca? Have you seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? LOL

Boy- I do like Levi, but I don't think I could use it if my last name was Miller. Just too Amish! You don't have too many boy names there to choose from. I think I'd have to pick Holden.

Hmm, I don't like just traditional names.

Lola
Ira
Ila

are might favorite names (right now) for girls.

Oh, a fun fact about names you probably don't know. While at the hospital I filled out Jude's birth certificate information and we choose to use Elliot as his middle name. But I spelled Elliot - E L L I O T T, because there is a nascar racer that has his name spelled that way.

Oh the fun

OK, I think I mentioned this last time you were preggers, but Amy is a really great name. As for the ones you have picked, I like Ruby and Lucy. I'm not sure about the boy names. If Isabella had been a boy, I was probably going to name her Micah. I like it. I also kind of like Dean and Avery. Avery for a boy or girl. Good luck!

Maybe Brook?
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful Thursday
