I vote for Marilyn Grace. Unique spellings can be cool, but she will always be correcting people who spell it wrong. jmho :)

Jeanie P 02-03-2006 10:42 AM

keep the votes and opinions coming!
Thanks for the input, I love to hear everyone's opinion.:thumbsup:

I'm still open to other middle names, these are just a starting point. So if you have any other suggestions, I'm listening!

I'll be sure to update this after we have the baby and make it all official...I'm hoping it will be soon...sitting here...waiting...did I mention I'm ready...and waiting...:)

Think about how her monogram will look on all the online bargains:heartssmiley:

Usually the last name initial goes in the middle but not always. Both the M and P would not drop below the line. So MJP would be good and balanced and also MPM (for Marie):thumbsup:

Make sure the initials don't spell something MOP or something.glow

My kids' names are Annaliese, Alissa and Arek

I can find pre-personalized stuff for Anna (which is what we call her most of the time), but never Alissa (with an "i") or Arek (unless we go to Poland because it's Polish)

I wasn't concerned with wrong spellings, because people even spell my name wrong ie. Lidsey (ON MY CREDIT!), but I never thought about the personalization thing until they were here. Which is why I buy my things from Personalization Mall, because I can get their funky names on anything!

Marilyn Elizabeth
I'm partial to that because MY name is Mary Elizabeth. (maiden name was Price so same initials, too!) Also, Mary and Elizabeth, cousins, are two strong women in the Bible, so she would have wonderful examples all of her life. I am the mother of four girls who are 5 years apart, all grown up now, so you are in for fun! Once you get past the emotional teens, the Mother-Daughter relationship is very special and my girls are a huge support system for each other in times of trouble. And, of course, they spoil their Father rotten! I still have some favorite photos of him jumping rope or playing hop-scotch with all four of them. I see that all of your girls names start with oldest daughter, Lauren married a man (his name is Lance) who is the youngest of 10, all who's names start with L, so she fits right in!

Great Idea, hope we all helped you! Mary smiliebow

Wow, four girls, all five years apart...God bless you!

We have three boys too...their names all begin with different was my husband's idea to "keep the girls equal" since they were so close in age (only two years apart) Then, we kind of had to keep that tradition going with this baby. Our boys however, are Mike, John & Dean, so there's no real tie between them like that.

It's funny though, you talk about the teenage some point in time we are going to have FOUR teenagers between the ages of 12 & 18...three of which will be girls!!! My older son is thankful that he should be out of the house by then!speechless

I must say that this household is truly interesting...and don't know what I will do when those teenage years hit!

meandn 02-03-2006 12:04 PM

Oh WOW!!!!
How interesting! My sister had 6 kids, 3 boys first and then 3 girls all in a little under 8 years!! We both at some point had had three to four teenagers in our houses at once! Trust me, we did a LOT of praying and took little weekend trips alone with our husbands whenever we could to retain our sanity. speechless A strong, involved and understanding husband really helps, and we were both blessed that way. Let me tell you, Jeanie, the payoff comes when you have grandchildren, there is nothing like it! Even when THEY are teenagers they still think you're worth knowing, unlike the embarassing parents!:D Our oldest granddaughter, 23, blessed us with our first GREAT just last, fun, FUN!! You have lots to look foward to, trust me!

Good Luck, Marysmiliebow

Marilyn Faith
Not quite sure why I picked Marilyn Faith. I just like the way that it sounds together. My MIL name is Marilyn June, my youngest daughter's middle name is Grace after her great-grandmother and my mom's middle name was Elizabeth, so I had a hard time choosing. I do agree with the spelling of Marilyn though. Unique spellings are nice but hard to explain, especially when they are young.
Good luck with the waiting.
