We all have them, list of baby names to consider for when the time comes. I started mine before Little Man was born and he is now almost 4 1/2. Now that I’m pretty sure we are done in the kid department after Baby J is born I feel like I should share. But first the breakdown of the names chosen.
I don’t remember having a set boy or girl name before we knew that Little Man was a “Man”. I just remember once we knew that he was a “Man” that it was between two names there for while, Liam or Lane. With this one I had a full boy name and a full girl name before we knew the sex ready and waiting. Once we found out it was a girl the name did evolve and change some.
Original Boy Name: LOGAN HOLLIS
No connection to the names except that I liked them. I have never heard of the name Hollis before and saw it on Facebook one day so it had the strong and unique factor. With already having a boy I thought the first names should start with the same letter, Why do we do that people? My mom is 1 of 4 girls that all start with P. I am 1 of 2 girls that start with S. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against it. I mean, if we were having a boy right now then I would be on that bandwagon too.
Original Girl Name: JOSSLYN SADIE
Josslyn has been on my list since before Liam. It has the feminine and unique factor. The spelling is different and modern, which I like. Sadie just sounded pretty and rolled off the tongue. BUT it was a little country and didn’t stick. I really wanted a family name in there somewhere. So I sat down with the Big Man and I told him that he could choose the middle name but he had to choose one of the following three:
Josslyn Jane (Grandmother’s Middle Name)
Josslyn Ann (Other Grandmother’s Middle Name)
Josslyn Teddie (Big Man’s Middle Name is Theodore after his grandfather so it is a girly version of the family name on his side) Plus have a mentioned yet that I love Girl-Boy names?
Baby’s Name: JOSSLYN TEDDIE
Other Unused Girl Names: Girls
and I know a lot of people will think this is on the wrong list but I love the idea of Logann for a girl.
Unused Boy Names:
I must have known I was going to have a girl in the back of my mind the whole time. I really didn’t focus on those that much this time around. I will say though that I do LOVE my boy name so if anyone wants to use it go right ahead! I was very leery of it when the top baby names came out because Logan is in the top 10 boy names of 2011 or something like that but in the end I didn’t care I still loved it.
