We found out last week that our twins are a boy and a girl. Yay!! Now the hard part begins. We're pretty good for a girl. We've got a nice long list, middle name will be Virginia:
Malin (I'd say it's 90% sure this will be her name)
...and there are others but those are the front runners I think.
Now, boys is where it gets tough. His first name will *most likely* be John, since it's family tradition and I've suddenly become okay with continuing it. HOWEVER, he will go by his middle name if we do that. If we end up with a name that starts with "p", then John will move to the middle spot, so DH and baby boy don't have the exact same initials. Our list so far (remember John is first in reality):
Theodore (nn Teddy, or I would use Teo in Spanish)
Thomas (nn Tucker)
Peyton (I know it's trendy but it's a family name--He would then be Peyton John, not the reverse)
...and now we're out.
DH's hesitation with Theodore is that my childhood best friend (whose family we are VERY close with and do Christmas with every other year) is Theodore John. He goes by TJ and always has. He's given me 100% permission to use Theodore as he doesn't want to. DH is leery since it's just TJ's name reveresed. It's the name I love more than any of the others. We're stuck. Help!!!
