Name Help is a series at Appellation Mountain. Every Saturday, one reader’s name questions will be discussed.
We’re relying on thoughtful comments from the community to help expectant parents narrow down their name decisions. Thank you in advance for sharing your insight!
My husband has two wonderful daughters from his first marriage. The girls’ names are Morgan Elizabeth and Mackenzie Marie. They’re in middle/high school and live a few hours away, but we try to see them as often as possible.
We have a three year old son together, William Joseph. It’s the name of both of our fathers, and it is the only name we ever discussed when we were pregnant the first time. Both grandfathers died before Will was born, so it was even more important to use those names. We didn’t even argue about which name came first because I have a brother who is a junior.
Now we’re expecting again. It’s a girl. She will complete our family, and we are so excited!
