Show Us Your Life: Kid Names!

There is so much in a name!

Our little girl's name is

Zoe Jane
My husband loved the name Zoe....of course....from Sesame Street. He first heard it there and it just stuck....sounds silly. We definitely call her Zoe Monster as a nickname. Jane has always been one of my favorite names. I am finding more and more....I am very many ways.

When choosing names for our future babies....I want one that is common but not on the top Baby name list. I don't want them to be 1 of 10 in school.

This morning on Fox and Friends they stated the top names of 2009.

Jacob, William, Ethan

Isabella, Sophia, Ava, Olivia

I love the name Ryan for a girl....I know....not traditional. But I love it! And I don't want to change the spelling to Ryann or something that might make it more feminine because I want her to be able to find her name know on name plates and sippy cups...silly...but I think this way! And middle name is Mackenzie....I just think it is a beautiful name.

And for a boy....we chose Benjamin Thomas if our 1st was a boy. Very traditional....but just not meant to be. Zach was never really in love with it but he said I could name the boy because he would just be so excited if we had one! Haha.....But this time around....we both LOVE our boy name. We were watching tv and heard Oliver and we looked at each other and both were like...."we really like that name". And James is a family name from Zach's side.
