heather - I like Marshall quite a bit - you could use Marsh as the NN.
I love love LOVE Everly. It was my top choice for my DD but my husband didn't like it enough.
Everly is nice. I agree. It has a 'classic' sound to it without being too out there.
Ya, Marsh was all I could think of too. LOL. I googled it and someone suggested 'Mars'. DH like astronomy. LOL
My middle name is Jade too!! I have considered using it for a middle name for a girl, though I'm not sure about it. The one I was considering was Saylor Jade.
I think Saylor Jade is adorable!
Did I mention Carson yet? I like that one too. Kaden was one we had picked out before with DD but it's a bit over-done now. Also, we already have a K name so next baby won't be K. We could do Caden...but we are still stuck on Marshall. LOL
My friend has a DS named Carson and I love it. I went to HS with a kid named Marshall and no one really shortened it that I can remember. It's only 2 syllables. It's a nice classic name IMO.
My DH is on the fence about it at this point.
We've got an 's' theme for all the others, so I would LOVE to continue that. But realistically, I have no idea. We had such a hard time last time, we're out of names we like. Even our youngest doesn't go by her 'real' name, but rather her nickname (her name is Selene, but we all call her Lilu...which was supposed to be her name until I bowed to pressure to name her something less 'hippy-wackadoo').
I'm certain this babe is a boy, so I think his name will be Thelonious James (Theo for short).
Theo is cute!!! Will you add a silent 's' to keep with the theme?
I totally giggled at the hippy-wackadoo thing. That's why I don't tell people i know IRL what name we chose until AFTER baby is here and named. They tend to keep their opinions more to themselves once the naming is done.
I made a mistake sharing name ideas with my father for my first pregnancy. I was really into the name Spencer and he totally ruined it for me. I also do not share IRL with anyone!
I found out today that Eminem (the singer) is really named Marshall. Geeze Louise! I'm trying not to let it ruin it for me. I don't DH and he's like "Damn it!". LOL
yeah, his real name is marshall mathers I believe. What about Mitchell? it's similar to Marshall.
Mitchell is my brother's name, I think it is a nice strong name!
We know a few Mitchells. I still like Marshall...it's not like Eminem actually goes by it, right?
He sometimes goes by it. Why does that matter? There are always going to be other people with the name...plus Eminem is pretty freaking talented
But fast forward 12 years when your LO actually cares about his name, do you think Eminem will still be around? Likely not. You've got to remember that celebrities are generational and very few tend to carry from one to the next. Like if I met someone named Danny when I was little, I wouldn't have thought "Oh that's a definite Grease reference" because I didn't know what it was.
You really can't let one random person with the same name ruin a name for you because there's always someone annoying w/the same name. We considered naming our first Paris so I've put a lot of thought into the subject - haha
Yeah, you never know what name will get the annoying celebrity when the kids are older. I felt bad for the 2 or 3 girls named Brittany I knew in high school (late 90s), but it's not like their parents could have predicted anything.
LMAO, my friend's daughter is Paris. I LOVED the name back in the early 2000s and she had her daughter in 2001 I told her I was ok with her using it. Anyways, ya, the whole Paris Hilton thing happened a while later.
I'm just not really into rap...but yes, I won't let that ruin the name for me.
