I Call Dibs

Steve and I were talking more last night about names and at the top of our list (when I am forced to exclude my original favorite) is Natalia Faith.
With the onslaught of pregnant ladies, I just want to be the first to lay claim to the name.
We might change our minds in the next 4 months, but for now that tops our list.
Thanks for all your input. My dad emailed me yesterday:
"On a scale of 1 - 10, Grandpa's name rating:
Clara --- -1
Natalia -- 6
Nadia -- 9
Claire -- 9.1
Love,Dad"
I emailed him back and asked him where Anneliese sat on his scale and he said it was in the nine range as well.
I really think we ought to honour my father and give our daughter a name that he likes so that a part of him can live on in her.
Let's see if Steve buys that!

Faith? I LOVE THAT NAME. I always wanted to name my baby girl that, but then I mentioned it to Brad and he said he wouldn't want her nickname being Faye..and so he agreed it could be a middle name. I might have to copy you with the middle name if a little girl ever comes around for me..

Amanda, I love reading your blogs about your pregnancy adventures. I am praying for the three Browns. I hope that you can soon feel the relief that God has for us when we trust His work entirely (I still struggle daily with letting go). Anyhow, I just wanted to send you my love and prayers...

Natalia Faith Brown. There is such a nice ring to that name! At least you have time to really think about it...if you still like it in a few months, It's the one!

I think Natalia Faith is a very pretty name. I am partial to Faith as a middle name because it is Delaney's middle name so good choice.

I like Claire,but I really loke Natalia,too.Maybe spelled Natalya-one of my Mom's aunts had that name,and they called her Tallie.Faith is beautiful and so is Grace.However,Annaliese Natalya Brown sounds very dignified.But you can call her anything,because she'll always be my l'il sweetie grandbaby to me!Love from your Momma!

Beautiful name! (I want to start claiming my own name too, even though I'm years away from needing one.)

WHatever you decide her first name should be you need to call her faith for her second name because of what you told me last night. But I do love Natalia. I can't wait to meet her!

Natalia Faith is beautiful!!! We won't take it, don't worry.
I use to have a friend named Natalia, I loved the name, we usually called her Talia!

I love the name Faith. I always have. It just speaks volumes to me. Natalia is beautiful, but I still love Annalyse. So exciting!

What if she doesn't look like a Natalia when she's born? Or maybe you see something different when you say Natalia then I do. I find it so hard to chose names before I've met a baby. But, all the power to you if you can do it!

Tell your hubby when he carries the baby for 9 months and pushes it out he can name the baby. haha I think you should name her Annaliese Faith. That's my input.
