10 Baby Names I LOVE But Didn't Use.

If you have children, you know how hard it is to pick a name.. the name they will have for the rest of their lives. You don't want something too popular (my name is Katie, there was like 10 of us in my graduating class!). You don't want anything too unique that someone doesn't know how to pronounce it. Or a cutsie name that's won't grow with them. Also, for me I was drawn to longer names so that they could have a nickname (Katie is short for Kaitlin).

As most of you know, we have 6 children. My bonus kiddos were obviously named before I met them. But, their names fit with the traditional theme I had going.. 

Jacob Michael 
Nicholas Wayne Allen 
Emma Alyssa 
Jonathan Tyler 
Aubrey Elizabeth 
Christopher Michael Arnold II 

I love my kids names, they fit each of them perfectly and I'm so glad I chose them. But there are a few names I absolutely loved that either just didn't fit, or I didn't have a chance to use. And since Christopher is our last, we never will. 

So without further ado.. 

10 Baby Names I LOVE But Didn't Use

  1. Jacob DeWitt, Joseph Eric, Noah Lee and Danielle Lynn are my four children's names.

    Jacob I liked maliki. Joseph was his father's first choice but I said no. I also wanted to name him neamiah, kayden, Blake and Anthony. But with Noah and Danielle was the first and only name their dad and myself choose. And my kids middle names come from our family members. My pop pops first name was Dewitt, my brothers name is eric, Lee comes from fads side, and Lynn is my sisters middle name. I absolutely LOVE all my kids name. But I kinda wish we named danielle, Daniella. And thank God she was a girl cuz dell and I couldn't even think of a boys name lol. (Also if Noah was a girl, we agreed on danielle. We actually said the name at the exact same time (

  2. You took Nicholas from me hahaha Bryan was going to be Nicholas after my grandfather, and I didn't know you were thinking of Logan. Lol Logan was going to be Savanah Kristine if he was a girl. Bryan I don't think I had a girl name even picked out. Lol
