Through another blog I found this:

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

This week's "Show Us Your Life" with Kelly's Korner is Baby Names! Now, this is right up my alley, I couldn't resist. I looooveee names. I ask people their names, I research names, I even am part of an online forum all about baby names. Yes, I'm a geek. Especially now that I'm married and will be starting a family in the next couple of years (that's a whole other topic that Brandon and I are excited about ;) ), I've been trying to find names that we both can like. However, it's hard with a last name like ours (that starts with the evil Sh-), and it's even more difficult with a husband who hates all boys names.

Anyway, this is what we've come up with.


Victoria Marie-Ange

Brandon suggested Victoria nn Tori and I kind of liked it. My contenders were Caroline Marie-Ange and Anna Rose. We like classic names. I think Victoria will be our first daughter though. Oh, Brandon also likes the name Olivia, and despite it's popularity, I do too!


Thomas Kyle/Brandon

We were laying in bed playing with names when I suggested Thomas and Brandon clung to it. He really likes it. Now I don't LOVE the double S's (Thomas Sh-) but when you say it fast enough, it doesn't really run together. We're not sure which middle name we'd use, but I know for all our children I'd like to use family names. This is the only name we can agree on for boys. Every boys name is either too Biblical, starts with a vowel, he knew someone with that name, or he just doesn't like it. My short list for boys, and Brandon hates all these, is Samuel, Isaac, Adam, Evan, Owen and Nathan.

So there you have it. Baby names. Let's hope Brandon doesn't back off on Thomas without an alternative!
