My DH and I are having triplets in the next month or two. 2 girls and 1 boy. Where in the world do we start for names??
for the boy I really want Michael as the middle name b/c it is my dad's middle and his father's "American" name (he was Icelandic and had a weird name I just found out). I know my dad will be so proud. So we came up with either:
Zachary Michael or Brandon Michael.
The problem with Zachary is we like Zach; however DH's sister had a boy last year and named him Jack (out of the blue). Zach and Jack as cousins???? Thoughts??
Here is the problem with the girls names: our last name ends in a hard "e" sound so first names like Emily are out (repetition of sound is weird). We know we don't want anything too matchy like all the same letter or rhyming names. We want them to be individuals. We just have no clue how to get started. We've tossed around so many girl names that I think we are confused. Here is what we like so far:
Kate (but do we go with Katherine or just Kate??)
and for a middle name we like Ryan
All the girl names on the top 10 type lists are out due to either nieces or pets being named similar. No Sophie, Olivia (our dogs are Sophie and Oliver), no Madison, Emma, Isabela, b/c of nieces. Claire is our "adopted" nieces real name, but she goes by Cat so we may steal it. I'm just so confused. We got a name book, but it's like a dictionary and the majority of the names listed we would never use. Where do I start? How do we choose?
Thanks for sticking with me. Any advice is appreciated.
