Show us Your Life - Your Kids' Names

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

This week in Kelly's Show Us Your Life, she's focusing on Our Kids' Names or Future Kids' Names.

Connor James
We picked out his name while we were in High School and it just stuck. We loved the name Connor. It was similar to my brother's name Colin and is Irish (which pays homage to my heritage). James is Mr. Howard's paternal grandfather's name. He used to take care of Mr. Howard while his parents were out of town and was a special influence in his life. We also loved that his initials would be C.J. (a nickname he can use if he likes). Mr. Howard used to have a CJ7 and even had custom plates for it that said CJ4**** (the astericks were his name).
Isabella Lynn
We picked out our daughter's name also while we were in High School. I have always been a fan of names that have a sense of formality to them, but can also be shortened for cute nicknames (for those of you who know my name, you know that my name has this). We liked that she could be Isabella in her work life or Bella/Belle/Izzy for short if she chose. Lynn comes from a mix of names. My mom's name is Lynda and she is obviously an incredibly important person in my life. Also, Mr. Howard's paternal grandmother's name was Lynn. He spent her last summer with her before she passed and she was a big influence on his life. **Let me say that we picked this name out 10 years ago...long before Twilight came out and long before Bella Swan fans laid claim to the name.**
Third or Fourth Child
We actually have a second boy and second girl name picked out mostly, but haven't told anyone those names yet. I suppose with our next we'll have to release at least the boy name (we won't find out the gender of the baby until he/she pops out and is welcomed into the world). But I want to keep those a secret for now. I can tell you that we like Glen for a middle name (my paternal grandfather's name).

I love those names!! Like you, I've had my names picked out for a while! I think that is just a "girl thing!"

All 3 of our kids have names with significant meaning to us. You know you want to tell me the others though! hehehe. I have never read, nor do I care to read or see any of the twilight movies/books. So the relevance escapes me at least! =)
