Before marriage, I remember thinking how good it would be to change my name to something easier to spell. Apparently there are like 100 different ways to spell "Bojesen". I married Shaun Larson. Great name. But names have brought about a lot more meaning, not just its spelling, since having kids.
When pregnant with Ethan, we chose his names not only for their cool sounding-ness, but also the definition of his name. I have a special love for my younger brother, and I wanted to connect the two of them as well. They share a middle name. It was all perfect. Ethan Alexander Larson.
Finding a name for this next little boy has proved difficult. Again, I believe definition and family connection is important. My husband and I have gone through our family history- many similar names are found in both of our families!- and we have spent endless evenings agreeing, disagreeing, joking, then changing our minds. I suppose I should admit here that I had hoped for a girl and we had her name chosen in stone. But I am happy and getting excited to have two boys.
For this little dude I picture two things. The first, how it looks on paper. The second, I imagine my two boys playing basketball on the court and shouting each other's names. What do I hear Ethan saying?
I THINK we have a name. I hope to convince my husband of the name I think I want. But we will see when the little guy is born. Hopefully his birth announcement is soon because I am so done being pregnant!
How did you come up with your boys names? x
