Names...

So, we just realized that we never told y'all, 'the bloggy world', what names we had chosen for our kiddos!

We drew them in the sand back in September - I know, totally dorky... but hey, we were excited that we picked them so quickly - when were were in Michigan {view photos & post here}.... thinking that we'd share them at some point.

So, without further ado.... here are the boys names we like:



and the girls names we like:


So tell us friends... what girl name would you vote for (Selah or Finley) and what boy name would you vote for (Silas, Judah, or Micah)?

Can't wait to tally your votes! :)

  7. Ohhhh you have some good taste my friend. For girls- Selah. That is my top favorite name right now. For boys- I like Judah best- but Silas comes in a close second. There is a little Jude in our nursery at church and he is adorable so that reminds me of him. :) SO EXCITED for you!!!

  10. If you have a girl and a boy, I like Silas and Selah! And love that you wrote them in the sand! We did that to "announce" Caroline Faith's name too! :)

  11. Hmm, I'm gonna be different and say Silas and Finley...Finley is so unique and cute! Love them!

  12. Our little man (we're #32 on the list so quite a bit behind you) is going to be a Silas, so that's definitely my fav. But we also considered Micah and love your other choice as well! I like Finley for a girl!

  14. Silas and Selah are my favs!! Silas was on our short list for boy names but we had another name similar that we went with instead bc hubs liked it slightly better. I still love the name Silas though!

  17. Oh friends... this is so much fun! I don't know if you're making it any easier on me :)... but that's ok!

    I typically ask Dan every few days, 'If you had to pick today, what names would you pick'... and although he's fairly consistent, there are some days where we like one over another... guess we will just have to wait to see those faces! :)

  19. ....all beautiful names....I love Silas and Selah the best....however, you will know when you see her/his precious face:) God bless your family and enjoy the contest.

  20. You might leave the possibility open that you will want to keep their Ethiopian names. There is something quite powerful about seeing your child in their homeland, surrounded by people who call them by the only name they've ever known--and truly all that they own when they leave ET to come to the United States. I know a lot of families who change their mind in-country. Good luck!

  21. Thank you so much for all the comments... after just reading the last comment I can say that I'm so thankful that you posted that! It is definitely one of our options to keep our child(ren)'s Ethiopian names as either their 1st or middle names... and we are forever grateful for their birth family! We completely understand and know that this is not an easy road for the child involved or for their birth family and our prayer is that we can do many things to keep their Ethiopian heritage alive!
    Thank you for joining us in this journey and supporting us through prayer!

  22. I love Silas (it was one of our top choices when we were on the Ethiopian adoption route). Selah is also very pretty.

  23. I love them all - but lean towards Micah and Selah. When you see their little faces, you will know! God Bless You!!!

  24. Love absolutely every one, but I'll vote Silas for a boy and Selah for a girl! =)

    BTW...in case you didn't know, you're background is gone and it's kinda hard to read right now =)
