Cecil? Clovis? Rock? Are you serious? We would never name a kid anything close to that! The names Cecil and Clovis are a running joke with Tommy and me, and Rock has been the most requested name.
With a last name like ours, you've gotta be careful what name you curse the child with for life. So far we don't have any names picked out, just several that are ruled out!
My mom says that if it's a girl, we can pick the middle name, but she wants Emily for the first name. While I like the name Emily, it's also the most common baby name in the United States right now...

In other news, at our first appointment, we got to hear the baby's heart beat. Sounded like a little freight train. According to one of my pregnancy books, the baby is the size of a large lime.

If you've got kids, how did you pick the names? Any ideas for us?
Proverbs 22:1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.


  1. While I don't have kids, allow me to suggest

    Also, may I suggest the girl name "Mary Jane"? hahahahaha

  2. Whew. You never know about what people will pick for names, so I wanted to be as positive as possible. I didn't even get the Rock joke. :)
    Glad you seem to be doing well! And even though Jason and I don't plan on having kids for a long time, we're probably going with family (or family-inspired) names when we do.

  3. Thank goodness. I was really hoping those names were jokes.

  4. first off, CONGRATULATIONS! ...somehow I missed this exciting news. Secondly, I think Emily is a wonderful name for a sweet little girl. ;) But you're right, it is VERY popular.

    I think I was named after a girl my mom went to high school with...not a best friend, but I guess someone that influenced my mom with a name she liked. There are a few people who have influenced me that I'd like to name my kids after, but we'll see when that time comes. I don't know the story behind my other sibling's first names, but mine and their middle names are family names. (trent james, bradley john, rebecca elizabeth, emily jean- grandpa gene, but close enough) I like the idea of having a family name as the middle, or even the first, so I would suggest that to you.

    I'm sure you've already thought of this, but a biblical name would be an option too. There are a lot. But you're right, a name is very important and I'm sure whatever you decide, it'll be perfect for your little one.

    Congrats again! How exciting!

  5. I already know the sex of the baby (4/1/08) so here are my fav's...
    Alexander (Tommy's great-great maternal grandfather's first name)
    (Alexander Aiken Flett)

    John Mark, Caleb, Jeremiah, Benjamin (good biblical names, but not Peter.
