OK, Cheese. You started it....Why do we choose the names we do for our chiddren?

I have two. My oldest, Chelsea Renee will be 14 in May. Chelsea means "Safe Harbor". I'm a great Joni Mitchell fan, so "Chelsea Morning" held a soft spot in my heart. Renee was the name of an absolutely ravishing female I went to high school with in the '70's.

My son, Benjamin Andrew, is 12. Benjamin is Hebrew for "Son of my right hand", and Andrew is just a cool name. We actually thought of Andrew Benjamin also.

Youse guys?

This is my oldest (Four). His name is David. Named for one of my most endeared Biblical figures, King David, meaning "beloved". He was the apple of God's eye!



Here is my little guy (three). He is John F. Sullivan Jr. Not much explanation necessary with that one.



Hey, are they good looking boys, or is it just me because I love them so much? I can tell you they didn't get it from me! I know everybody thinks their kids are beautiful, but we all know there are some fugley looking people out there.

We have to NAME them??? I should have called them Dammit and Whatwereyouthinking. Seriously, we chose a mix of relative names and one dead president with a little sarcasm thrown in. Using relative names ensures many gifts at Xmas. (for them, of course).

Had to have the letter J.

in my family there is Jack, Jacquline, Jennifer, Gillian (yes I know), John, Julie so my daughter was called Jessica. Plus we liked the name. If we have a boy next it maybe be called Jack (had an uncle Jack and he was a nice man, just need to ask his wife and daughters first). No traditions in my family so I thought I would start one!

Two girls--Randi Marie (former SWMBO wanted that name for her first girl since she was a little girl, I guess) and Madeline. Everyone calls Madeline Maddi. We had two girl names picked out and chose Madeline when we saw her.
