I'm SO excited, we've never figured out names this quickly before.

Well, the first names are NMS -- but then we're more into traditional names (Mary, William, Jacob so far, nn's Libby, Will, and Jake). However, if YOU like them, that's all that matters. :)

And this from the woman whose family is pushing for Tiberius for a boy's mn. LOL. (So not going to happen as I've made a command decision on Henry.)

I really love the name Selah, because I love how it sounds, but I also love what it means.

I read a book a long time ago called, "The Divine Secerets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood".

I've only seen your sig a hundred times, duh! I'm a dork. Anyhoo, Selah totally fits with the girls, and I see that they all have the "ah" sound at the end -- perfect!

So funny about Baylor and Texas. See, our girl's name was going to be Abigail Catherine, and I was going to call her Cate which would invariably lead to Catie, and we live in Katy, TX, so that put a damper on it for me. And, I don't even prefer the spelling of Catie, but, I don't prefer Katherine over Catherine. So.

Names are hard, and they're a very personal decision. It really chaps my ass when people get all snarky about names others pick for their children. There are so many things in life that really deserve our attention and a critical eye. What someone names their child really shouldn't be among them. All that matters is that the parents are happy. :)

Henry (nn Hank) is our boy's name :) so obviously I'm a fan. :)

Selah! So pretty, and I love the meaning. I agree I've never heard Baylor. Such a great feeling picking names, right? Can't wait to find out who we're all having.
