Grown in my heart is having a “carnival”, so we are talking about names today. I am excited to hear about how other adoptive families chose names for their children!
As of yet we have no name for our child-to-be. First, we have had a hard time picking and choosing just the right one, and agreeing on names we both like. We want this name to be a very special one. We have waited so long for our daughter, and feel that she is so precious and special, and so, naturally, her name should reflect that.
Yet, since she will be adopted, she might feel like attention is always on her already because of that, and we don’t want to add to that with too unusual a name. I want it to be a strong name, for a strong, independent girl, who, in my dreams, will grow into a strong, independent woman.
We have narrowed down our name list, and maybe when we see her picture we will just know who she is. Maybe it will take much longer.
We also know that our daughter will come with a name. She will have a name that may have been given to her by her birth family, and we want to honor and celebrate that name, as well, so we will be incorporating that somehow.
We can’t wait to get that phone call and see her little face, and talk about who she is going to be! We just know that we already love a little nameless girl so much we can’t stand it!
