I thought I would link up with Andrea (Momfessionals) for something a little fun today! Today, for Show & Tell Tuesdays they are talking about how we picked our kids' names.
Long before Matt and I were together, I had chosen a name I would love for a girl (if I were to ever have one). My favorite girl name is Madeline Marie. Then, Matt and I got together and through the course of our dating, I told him about that name and he loved it too.
And well, we got married and then I became a Morgan, we realized that a future daughter would be named "Madeline Marie Morgan" with initials "MMM" which we actually loved/love.
We also knew that if we had a son, we wanted his middle name to be Matthew after my husband, Matthew. So that meant a son's name would be _____ Matthew Morgan. So, we were faced with a decision: choose a first name that doesn't start with an "M" or choose one that started with "M" and just plan for all children to be named with initials "MMM".
We chose the latter and are quite happy about it! We looked through boy names and chose about 10 that we liked and just discussed and narrowed down from there. We decided on Mason Matthew Morgan and we love love love it! After Mason was born on November 1st, 2013, apparently Mason was also a name that EVERYONE chose for their boys and it was one of the most popular boy names of 2013. Cracked us up because we didn't even consider that (nor do we really care about it) but it was just funny.
Our plan for future Morgan children is this:
We would love for all boys to have the middle name "Matthew" after their Dad.
If we have a girl or girls, we will plan to use the name "Marie" as each girl's middle name as it is the name of my deceased aunt and I think it is so special.
And so that's the story and just for fun, here is a picture of my sweet MMM.
