So I’m desperately seeking name suggestions for the two new kiddos that we are adopting. You can read this post for more info and either post your comments here or there.
For background – our two bio kids are Noah and Natalie. We did not pick both “N” names intentionally, it just happened. That being said I wonder if our two new kids will feel left out if they don’t have “N” names.
But really, there’s not a lot of variety in N names.
For W-boy we could go with:
NEHEMIAH (not that excited)
NICKLAUS (Nicklaus-yes, spelled like the golfer-was one we had picked out as a possibility when we had Noah but then it would get shortened to Nick Gumm and then you start with the Nicorette Gum jokes)
NATHAN – too close to Natalie and my dad’s name of Nathaniel.
The names we DO like are Daniel and Micah.
For B-girl we could go with:
NAIYA (sounds Russian)
NAOMI (not bad, maybe growing on me)
NATASHA (again, Russian)
NICOLE (like it)
NORAH (kind of cool)
NYLA (sounds African maybe?)
Stacey had the great idea of giving them names that start with the same letter, but not necessarily N. So if we named W-boy Micah then we come up with an M name for B-girl.
So I need girl names that start with either D or M. I’m counting on you guys!
