We've chosen names!

We've had our girl's name picked out for a while, but finally decided on a boy's name today. Okay, here goes:

Girl - Carina Shannyn. Carina is pronounced "cah-ree-na". I didn't think I'd have to clarify the pronunciation, but apparently some people (Baby Names board) read it as "cah-rinn-a" and that's just not what we want. Shannyn is after my late sister.

Boy - Luke Robert. Robert is after M's dad and my grandfather. My grandfather is a deacon in the Catholic Church and will likely baptize our baby (he married us, as well).

Now I'm off to squee all over the place...

Yay!!! We cannot settle on names. But we're not too focused on it until we find out what it is.

Are you guys going to find out what it is?

Sarah said...

Squeeee!! Love the names you've chosen. :)

Katie said...

Great names! I love them :D

Mike said...

Hey babe-

What does Squee mean?

-DH

Caroline said...

totally squee-worthy.

And FTR - It would never occur to me to pronounce Carina in any way other than you intend it.

Sarah said...

Dear Mike (aka Missie's DH),

Squeeeee is like onomatopoiea for 'squealing with delight'.

HTH (Hope that helps) :)

Great names! Are you going to find out what the gender is, or leave it a surprise?
