The name game

When we found out we were expecting we let each of our family and friends name the baby and we actually called baby by that name for the whole week. Once we find out the gender of our baby I them began to scrapbook the names we had up for consideration. Even though we are pretty sure of baby's name I still have two more names to add and of course the last page where we announce baby's name, after we have filled out the paper work.

My deal is I just can't bring myself to name a red headed baby Scarlett. So if she has red hair then we have a problem!

To be continued...

Wayne's mother is from a family of all red hair.

His Grandfather was named Emerson Ray, but he was always called Red. Since the baby is a girl we are naming the baby after him by using the name Scarlett. Smile

I have dark hair and Wayne's is a mouse brown. However we both started as blonds so it might happen. My hair might have been reddish as a child as well. So there is a slim chance.

Oh my goodness Nicole! The "Name Game" is one of the neatest things I've ever seen scrapped! I can't believe how cute all those stories are! Scarlett Elizabeth is going to cherish that for sure.

PS I love the name you ended up choosing. Scarlett is a beautiful, strong name, and I know it will fit your daughter well.

Wow, that looked like that was so much fun! I loved reading the stories behind all the different names! This is how Tyler got his name. DH and I never agreed on the names we chose, so we asked family for help. My sister said Tyler and it stuck. Just fabulous!
