I adore the boys names. Love them. And someone a while back asked on Twitter how we chose them. I’ve been meaning to write this but never got the chance, so here it is:
Julian Toby Stone
Baby A – “GO”
One night Sam and I were discussing names – after we knew we were having two. I kinda picked Bella’s out – even though he loved it – so I told him he should have full say in one of the (4) of the boys. He said he’d always loved the name Julian.
Later I found out Julian is also someone on Star Trek. lol
Anyway, Trekkie aside – I liked the name too. We knew immediately it would be Baby A’s – he was the one closest to the, um, exit hole? 🙂 (Sorry, I just couldn’t write the actual word on here.)
His middle name is very special. When I was a nanny in Southern California, I watched a 4 year old boy who became my little buddy. At 50+ hours a week with him and his siblings he became a part of my heart forever. It was so hard to leave him and move to Colorado over a year later. His name was Toby.
Preston William Stone
Baby B – “BO”
Bella was going to be named Preston if she had been a boy. I have no idea where we came up with the name, but Sam and I both really liked it from the beginning. We saved it for if/when we had a boy next.
William is my dad’s and both my grandfather’s name. We thought about using “Sam” but Sam wasn’t too keen on that. We loved how both names sounded together and that it honored 3 people we care about.
And that’s how Preston and Julian came about.
No, we don’t have any names in mind for our new little one from Korea yet! Soon.
I was interviewed for Mommy Page today – check out what they wanted to know about me!
