So I thought we had picked our names and we are set on a boy name...but now I need/want to change my girl name. You see. While we are using family names for the boy and the girl's first name...I am also a big stickler for meanings. One or all of the names has to mean something of value to me. IDK why I do this but I just feel it's important
Anyway...If it's a boy, his name will be Aaiden Columbus Richie Palmer. If it's a girl, her name WOULD HAVE BEEN Olivia Delaney Rose Palmer.
Here are the meanings:
Aaiden ~ Little Fire
Columbus ~ Dove (was also my father's first name. He died 5/20/11 on DD2's second birthday. so this is in honor of him.
Richie ~ Brave Ruler (is DH's grandfather's family name. A name that was asked to be passed along so we are. In honor of DH and his grandfather)
Palmer ~ Holy Land Pilgrim (this is our surname)
Olivia ~ Elf Army (it is also the female version of Oliver which was my father's middle name. So this would be in honor of him if we had a girl)
Rose ~ Rose (IMO it means beauty, pretty, dainty but it'll still stick you if you're mean lol)
Meaning: From the alder grove
Meaning: Child of dark defiance
Olivia has great meaning to me because it's from my father's name. And DH and I both love the name rose. I need another middle name for a baby girl to complete the name and hold up the tradition of 2 middle names.
I know my reasoning may sound stupid ... but it is important to me. And I know I have 7.5 months to figure it out. lol. I just want to get it right.
