we've got a baby naming emergency on our hands!
I'm going in for my C-section in TWO days to deliver my triplets, and I don't have all the names!
One of the girls will be Schuyler (pronounced Skylar) Audrey, named after 2 little girls whose stories have really touched me.
The other 2 girls' names are fluctuating madly! We have one first name picked out - Charlotte - but the middle name depends on what we choose for baby C's name.
The name choices for baby C are:
Hannah (which I think is too common, and I don't like it very much)
Helena ( said He-LAY-na, not HEL-en-a.)
I liked the middle name Leigh, but I think it only goes with Hannah? Obviously I can't pair it with Hadleigh. So, I need middle name suggestions for Helena and Hadleigh, as well as, you know, which one we should choose!
Oh yeah - Charlotte's middle name! I like Eleanor, but I don't want to use it if we pick Helena - I think those are too similar. So, if you think we should go with Helena for baby C, what middle name should we give Charlotte?
Our last name begins with a J and ends in an N.
Thanks a TON for the help!
This is from yesterday, so it is actually ONE day until these baby girls will be here! They will be born TOMORROW! Here's what we're working with:
Triplet the First: Schuyler Audrey
Triplet the Second: Charlotte Eleanor, unless Triplet the Third is Helena, in which case we may need a different middle name
Triplet the Third: Hadleigh or Helena (I took Hannah out, since Isabel isn't sure she likes it anyway)
I like the name Hadleigh better with the name Schuyler, and I like the name Helena better with the name Charlotte. So I think either name works well, and I'm putting them both in the poll.
If you go with Helena, I think it's still fine to use Eleanor with Charlotte, and then you could use Leigh with Helena: Schuyler Audrey, Charlotte Eleanor, and Helena Leigh. But you could also do Charlotte Estelle. Charlotte Amelia. Charlotte Mae (the middle name Mae has been a favorite around here recently!).
If you go with Hadleigh, how about Jane as a middle name? That's my favorite middle name for girls right now, because it's so cute and sassy and strong. Then you'd have Schuyler Audrey, Charlotte Eleanor, and Hadleigh Jane. It might be a little bumpy with your J surname, though. Maybe Hadleigh Elise? Hadleigh Adele?
But I don't want to take too much time flipping idly through my baby name book when BABIES are going to be BORN! I'm turning it over to the whole team:
Well, we had a few big surprises with the babies! First, they arrived 1 1/2 days earlier than expected (2 am monday morning!) and not only that, but we now have 1 little girl and 2 boys! Since we only had 2 eggs, we thought 2 were identical (B & C) and they looked like girls when we checked... well, it turns out that not only are they boys, but they are not even identical!We named the babies:Schuyler AudreyAlexander Kale (Alex)Brody NathanielThanks again!Isabel
Congratulations, Isabel and family! What a surprise!
Poll results, even though they turned out to be irrelevant:
Hadleigh: 42 votes, roughly 52%
Helena: 39 votes, roughly 48%
