The schools have spring break next week, which means I won’t have to work. I have a lot of cleaning to do to get ready for baby…I only have till the end of May. Luckily, next week is also the last week of my college class and I will be done with my Bachelor’s Degree!
Twin boys at an elementary school (6th graders) named Jeremy and Jeremiah.
I will be taking care of our new baby this summer, so I can’t go too far away. We will probably go to the beach a few times since my Godparents live close by the beach. Does anyone know how old a baby has to be before you can bring them into the water? Both pool water and ocean water? I asked my mom but she has no idea.
My favorites are Mirabelle and Rosalie for girls, and Christian and Giovanni for boys.
I like Aurelia and Julian
From the girls names, I like: Brielle, Noelle, Alexandra, and Emilia.
Of the boys names, I like Benson and Jonathan.
How do you pronounce Asa?
That is interesting to hear. I live in a diverse community, so I have met girls named Jasmine who were all different nationalities. There are two Jasmine’s who go to my church who are both in their 20′s; one is from Ghana and the other is Hispanic. Working in the schools I have also met a blonde haired, blue eyed girl named Jasmine and dark haired, brown or green eyed Jasmines. I can picture any type of girl with this name.
My daughter’s name will be Noemi, so possible nicknames for her are Emmy and Mimi.
My name is Jennifer or Jen/Jenni. My brothers are Jesse nn Jes/Jessman and Vinny nn Vin/Vinster.
Nickname rules are kind of different in Mexico, and they don’t always have to do with the person’s name.
My fiancé is Victor, but at work they call him Chivo (goat) because of his beard. His sister is named Isabel, and her nickname is Chavela. Her husband is Antonio, but his nickname is Chino because he looks Chinese. I also have a next door neighbor with the nickname Chino whos real name is Miguel.
My nieces and nephews are: Guadaupe nn Lupe, Anthony nn Tony, Daniel nn Dany/Gordo (fat/chubby)
My grandma pronounced my uncle’s name Sam-you-ull. I have also heard it pronounced Sam-you-ell. I would pronounce it one of those two ways in English. We only ever called my uncle Sam, never Samuel.
I was 12 and in middle school. My first “job” was when I was around 16 and I was in high school. I helped a boy with his homework after school. My first real job was a math/statistics tutor at my college when I was around 19. Now, I am a substitute teacher’s assistant for the public schools.
Yesterday I was working at the middle school, so I wore black dress maternity pants (the only pants that fit me), a white tank top, and a pink flowy three-quarter’s length shirt on top.
Today its grey maternity jeans, a blue T-shirt that surprisingly still fits, and a white sweater (one of those half-sweaters that only goes half way down the torso) that I can’t button anymore.
I would also be uncomfortable with that change. I live near Hartford, CT so my town is very diverse. When I went to Pennsylvania with my grandma for 2 weeks to visit her family, there were nothing but white people there as well. It was weird for me to walk around at stores and go to church and not see any diversity. It makes me wonder what would happen when I bring my half Mexican daughter to Pennsylvania to visit family. People would probably stare at us, but here in Connecticut it is no big deal.
I am having my baby shower next month and I don’t expect anyone except family to buy the really expensive items off my registry. I know my mom bought the bedding set for us, and my brother and his best friend (who is like a brother to us) bought the stroller/car seat. My fiance and I sent money to his brother and sister-in-law so they could buy a crib because they live in Mexico and cribs are expensive down there.
For an acquaintance (like a co-worker), I would probably buy an outfit for the baby or a blanket. I would spend more money for a friend. My fiance and I together sent about $300 to Mexico so his sister-in-law could buy a crib. (His brother makes the equivalent of about $80 per week.)
The H in Heliel is silent. I found online that it is usually spelled Eliel and is a Hebrew name meaning “My God is God.” I’m pretty sure Loremy was made up. It is pronounced Lor-eh-mi. It possibly could be a combination of the parents’ names, Lorenza and Miguel. My in-laws are Mexican, by the way.
I love this name! Jasmine is my favorite Disney princess lol. The name is popular in Connecticut where I live. Its not extremely popular like Olivia and Isabella, but I have met a few Jasmines working in the public schools. This was one of the names my fiance and I both liked, but it is pronounced different in Spanish. He told me the other day Yasmin is pronounced like Jasmine and Jasmin is pronounced Has-meen. I definitely do not think it is trashy.
The ones I like from your list are: Caleb, Everett, Leo, Owen, Samuel, & Isaac. Avery and Addison I have only heard on girls. Your girl names are all pretty.
I like the name Samuel. I had an uncle with this name, and my next door neighbors named their son Samuel. They are Mexican, and pronounce the name Sahm-Well. I would probably call my son Sam because that’s what we called my uncle. If I used the name, it would probably be only as a middle name.
It depends on the word. I ruled out all names starting with an A so that my daughter’s initials wouldn’t spell AXE. However, those initials might be cool for a boy. It’s a little harder for girls because their initials can change if they change their last name when they get married. She shouldn’t have any problems with her middle name starting with an X. Someone could have the initials FAE, but then marry someone who’s last name starts with a T, and then her initials would be FAT. Boys are easier because they don’t usually change their names.
