@nearlymarriedlass:  Ahh, my best friend just named her son (boy #3) Declan! They’re very Irish too – last name starts with McG. And that’s really funny and true about Hannah, because as I was reading it, I had no idea where you were even going with that! And then I was like, OH, yes, Hannah Montana, right. Total afterthought. So you’re absolutely right. 

I do really like Ella… I also know that I like Rae as a middle name, but as with the boy names, I prefer to pick middle names with family meanings, and Rae has no significance to us. It’s just a name I like. Hmmm…

Not TTC yet, but soon! I’m running a half marathon in April and a 15k in July. I keep telling people that I don’t want to be puking for 13.1 miles (or 9.3), so we’ll start after that.  πŸ™‚

@LoveMikey:  heck! good on u girl!!!! no wonder haha get those out of the way first! u training hard for it?? they say the fitter you are when u become pregnant the easier/better your body is and pregnancy etc so thats super good!!!!!!

Rae is a good name and would go with alot of different names too! i wonder, if we name our baby girl after my mum, will my Mother-In-Law get upset and vice versa? probably not ay.

yea i think your pretty safe with names, the only ones i wouldnt name my kid are things like Oprah, Madonna, Elvis etc etc! haha!

@MrsPirt_2013:  Lydia is such a beautiful name! And I love the way it flows with Lynn as a middle name. Also, I was a camp counselor the summer after my senior year of HS, and I had a troop of 4-year-old boys. One of them was Harrison, and he was the absolute sweetest little boy. So that name has such a positive connotation for me. I dig your choices.  πŸ™‚

@BeeBiscuit:  Copeland is awesome! Has it traditionally been a first name or a last name in your family?

@nearlymarriedlass:  Thank you! Yeah, training pretty darn hard! I’ve been running four days a week, including increasing my distance every weekend, and then doing one workout per week that’s more strength-based. I do hope it helps with my future pregnancy and delivery! That would be an added bonus, for sure. 

I would kind of love to see everyone’s reactions if we kept the name a secret and then pretended to pick Oprah, Madonna or Elvis. That has the potential for some pretty awesome hilarity!

@LoveMikey:  It was my great grandmother’s last name but my uncle and cousin were both named Copeland as a first name.

Glad you like it, I of course think it’s an awesome name.

Well this is fun!

Girl – Liriel Rose

Boy – Alexander Christian

The boy name always stays the same – DH and I just like Alexander, and Christian is DH’s name (it’s his family tradition to use the dad’s name for a middle name).

For the girl, it’s always changing πŸ™‚ Actually, Rose is a perpetual favorite of mine for a middle name.  Liriel (Liri) is a charater in a book I’m reading right now.
