Finally decided on a name!

So we finally decided with the name Brayden Lee Lankin. My middle name is Lee and my DH middle name is Lee-Lankin (he is named after family on both sides) Its nice to finally be able to refer to our baby with a name instead of our little nick names, we decided to keep the name a secret from family and friends so there is a little surprise on the day of delivery, so hopefully we dont slip up!

So happy you decided. It is such a good feeling to have it done Smile

Best wishes on keeping the name a secret. We did that with DD and it was great, gave us something to announce at birth!

Congrats! I find after picking a name the baby becomes even more real. I always call my baby Ava now! It's like she is already here Smile

I know what you mean about having the name set and being able to call baby it. I always call Aubree, Aubree, it's never her or the baby.

I love the name Brayden-- very very cute!

I love the name Brayden! We're also going with a family name for Leo's middle name, which is Rivera.

We plan on using both middle names as primary, my Dh used both as primary, and lankin is the name thats been passed down, we figured Lee is named after both myself and my DH, Lankin after my MIL's family and then of course Braydens last name with be after my FIL's family, we cover all bases! My sister's middle name is lorraine christa so having 2 middle names isnt uncommon in my family or my DH's family!
