Baby Bellison

We are struggling a bit to think of a name for our little #3. One of us will optimistically put forth a suggestion only to be snidely poo pooed by the other.

Meanwhile, Little e is fighting to have input into the decision making process. Her suggestion is Bellison, which is some kind of frankensteined amalgam of her two favourite names, Allison and Bella.

And here I thought from the title that it was a mock-up name for 'Son of my Belly'. :-)

We had that issue when #3 of the same sex arrived here. Finding another couple of boys' names that we both liked wasn't easy. It ending up taking a day or two after he was born for us to actually decide on his name.

We have plenty of girls' names going spare here though! And I am a little sad we will never have a little Erin, Bridie or Imogen running around here now ;)

Belle said...

I once read about a little girl wanting her future sibling to be named things like "Apple Tree" or "Chocolate", so at least Little e's suggesting usable options! I like Allison and Bella (although Bella may still be super popular - not sure if that phase is over yet) (or whether you care about popularity!).

One of our kids was named "Coconut" by an older sibling prior to birth...

We sometimes still call her "Rosie Coconut" in memory of those days :)

Belle said...

"Rosie Coconut" is very cute! A future blog name, perhaps? :)

Belle said...

Or band name! Or brand name!

I'm giving up now.

Laetitia- Wow, son of my belly.. I like it. My name means 'son of my right hand', so it would work well with that.

Karen- yep, we have a plethora of awesome boy names that'll most likely go to waste. ps Rosie Coconut:)

Belle- thanks for the links, me and E were looking intently at them last night

Little F was called 'sunshine unicorn' whilst in utero, and I do often still call him that....so Bellison may stick around longer than you think!!

Lol about the plethora of boy's names! I'm like that with girl's names I didn't get to use!!

Sunshine Unicorn has a good ring to it!
