The ones that didn't make the cut.

We already have baby names picked out. I'm kinda weird like that. When I was preggo with Tink I had her first name picked out way before she was conceived, it did take us a while to come up with her middle name. We could not compromise on a boys name. Luckily we found out early on she was a girl so we quit worrying about it.

I have had an ongoing name list since Tink was born. This time we sat down as a family and went over the list as soon as we found out there was going to be a baby. I had tons of names that I liked. Hubbs had no additional suggestions, but vetoed most of mine. Tink had suggestions of her own, most did not make the list of options.

Tink's list:
Isabella (her favorite imaginary friend's name, also her new best friend's name)
Bella (imaginary friend #2)
Arabella (also an occasional imaginary friend)
Corrine (name of a soccer team mate's little sister)
Anyone noticing a pattern?

My list:
Foster
Thomas (Hubb's Dad's middle name)
Asher
Liam
Gray
Lawson
Jackson
Carter

Avery
Mary (name of both my grandma's and Hubb's grandma)
Makinley
Macey
Coraline
Piper (Tink has decided this isn't even a name.)
Braelyn
Mary Grace
Mary Claire
Cora
Joshlyn
Raegan
Arabella (Tink's only suggestion that I included in the list)

(Hubbs was pretty certain I had a presidential theme going.)

The list was much longer, these are just a few. None of these made it.
