Naming Nora

We finally (meaning Jason) settled on Nora for a first name. He was sort of holding out because he liked Cameron, but we agreed we should avoid another gender neutral name. He also really liked Avery, but I was hesitant since it's #90 in popularity and seems to be getting more popular. Luckily, he likes Nora just as much so we've settled on it for a first name.

As far as a middle name, we already used Mae from my family for Jordan so I thought we should pick one from his side of the family this time. His grandmother passed away in October, less than a week before we conceived Nora. It only seems appropriate to name this little girl after her, especially since she played a big part in Jason's life. Her first name was Mildred. Thank goodness that Alice was her middle name. Wink I was worried that Nora Alice would not flow with having two a's in a row but I keep saying it in my head and it feels like the right name for her. No other grand kids are named after her either so I feel good that we will be able to do that, especially after losing her so recently.

So, Nora Alice it is!

I Love, Love, Love it!! It's a beautiful, strong, classic name! AND, her initials spell out 'Name' (well, 'nam' but same diff) as in it's the 'nam' for your baby! It's FATE I tell you! Perfect! Smile

That is exactly what I wanted! I wanted feminine, but strong. I also wanted it to sound timeless. I hope we've achieved that as best as possible.

I also thought about the initials being NAM but I was saying it more like VietNAM. I like thinking about it as 'name' better, lol.

And Joy, I suspect your traveling has you tired? We already have a Jordan. Wink I suppose we could be like those brothers on that show Newhart. "I'm Larry. This is my brother Darryl and this is my other brother Darryl."

Thanks everyone! It's nice to be able to call her by her name now. Smile Jordan is learning it as well. It's soooo cute to hear her say "Baby Nora".
