Help name our new human! :)

Postby bare it all » Thu Feb 11, 2016 2:13 pm

We are expecting our second child in May (after the Derby, whew!)

Would anyone like to help toss out some ideas for a middle name? Her first name will be Genevieve. She will likely be called "Nev". Her brother is Benjamin Darryl "Ben" ... Darryl was my husband's deceased father's name. We aren't looking to have this little girl's middle name be in honor of anyone, so it's a blank space.

So, what middle name would you give Genevieve? :D

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Is it likely she would be named after a hero dog and only secondarily after the human?

Two questions: how many syllables in the last name, and how will you be pronouncing Genevieve? I've heard Jen-a-veev and John-vee-ev, depending on how French you wanna be.

(I take naming very seriously, obviously.)
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!

Loving the suggestions! Naming people is ridiculously hard and the husband is not helpful.

We are pronouncing the traditional "english" way: jen-ah-veev. Of course, my Canadian family will likely want to toss out jahn-vee-ev (I've also heard zahn-vee-ev), but we'll stick with what most Americans know down here in good ole Georgia.

Last name Kelly.

Genevieve ---- Kelly.

I see what you did there! :lol:

You would have been the type to be on board with what my husband wanted (and still wants to do)... having our boy Ben and naming our daughter Emma.

My kids are not the Geller children. :roll:
