Pinky Promise

I promise I'm not holding out on you all. I still don't know what to name my daughter yet. You know when a name just "clicks". You're like that's it! Well, it hasn't happened yet. I felt close a few times, but then NOTHING. A couple of weeks ago Faith woke up and told me her baby sisters name will be "Addelyn". I like it, I really do. It just hasn't completely clicked yet. So, the problem I'm having is every other name I come up with, my two teamed up daughters quickly make a face and say, "yuck!, No mom her name is Addelyn".

Here are names I came up with but have been rejected by ALL immediate family members:
Willow
Azlynn
Adia
Sevyn
Aubeny

I'm still trying to ask him about all the names that everyone came up with today. So far he liked:

Emy
Avalyn
maybe Azaria. At first he said it sounded like a name from a Conan the Barbarian show. After I told him the meaning he liked it better.
Reese
maybe Daizey

The absolutely no ways were:
Penelope

All the other names were either not mentioned due to time or bad cellphone signal. I'll give you an update tomorrow on all of the other names that were so graciously bestowed upon my comment box.

Thanks everyone. You made my day!

You are a brave girl to let other people help you pick. Eager to hear what you decide.

(I like what the girls choose)

I love Addelyn! I love Avelyn, so unique! You might have to wait to see her and get a feel for her personality before coming up with her perfect name...Have you looked up some African names and their meanings? I found some cool websites yesterday.

I could totally see you with a Reese!

I do like Addelyn though. . .but, it's pretty popular, down here at least!

I have to agree, Addelyn is such a beautiful name. And Avalyn really struck me too...I know whatever name clicks will be perfect.

How about Addis? Like the capital of Ethiopia? I have heard that before.

My favorites: Sevyn (SO cool), Azlynn (which does NOT sound like a sneeze!), and Daizy...
i like Addelyn too, but i feel like it may be too common. your girl needs a unique name!

I love the name Ashlyn. One day a name will just click and you will know! I am doing sooo much better, thank you for checking on me.

Adelynn said...

Hehehe, this is Adelynn, and I have never ever had any one ever come so close to my name before, LOL. Actually, one of our dd's is named Kelli because early on my older dd told me that her baby sister (didn't know what she was at the time) was going to be named Kelli, and it stuck. Hehehe, I'm glad you stopped by my blog today as I don't always think to come here now that you are not at xanga anymore, but this was worth it ;).

I just came across your blog today and want to tell you congratulations on your twins. I am thrilled for you and your family! We, too, have two children adopted from Ethiopia---a son, who's given name was and still is Tazebew (Taz) and a daughter, who we named, ADDALYN!!! (she was abandoned and not named, so we got to name her). So, I wanted to let you know that I love the name Addalyn and think it will be perfect for your daughter, too! :)
