The Name Game

I started to respond with all this info in a comment, but realized it was getting a bit too long! I decided to switch it to a post!

It's funny because lots of you have asked about a name ending with the "n!" In fact, that's been our discussion thus far... how to keep that going! Ha! I never imagined myself trying to coordinate kid's names, but it seems like we've set a standard and we can't turn back! I wouldn't want little #4 to feel left out!! So, we're searching for that perfect one that ends with the same sound!

We've also tried to make sure that all our first names either have a family tie or a great meaning (Collin- my Papa's surname; Griffin- with great faith; Eden- delight, and we loved that it was the place that God originally created as perfect!"); and then we like our middle names to be something Biblical : (Isaiah; Nathanael; Grace)!

Gee, I bet you didn't expect to get all that information!!
So, play the name game with us!! See what you can come up with!

I like aaron for a boy. It means strong, exalted. Bethan means God is my oath and I think it runs along your unique names. Cailyn means pure.

Okay, I want to play! If it's a girl:

Aislynn or Aislen - means dream! Because it is no coincidence that God gave you the dream calendar for this time and his dream for you was this precious little one!

If it's a boy: middle name Benjamin. While Benjamin means: child of my right hand, the ending amin is Arabic for "completely trustworthy." I just feel like since this was an unexpected pregnancy, it would be so priceless to name a child after God's complete trustworthiness even when it is something we hadn't planned! Okay, those are my thoughts:) I'll love anything you choose!
