Name Fun!

You all are great! We have been getting lots of emails and comments and loving them all! Some of my favorites that made me smile are:

From the Pantry..

  • Rosemary and Sage or
  • Thyme and Sage
  • Sage & Spice (but we sure hope she is not a spicy girl, we can't handle 2 in one house!)

From the headlines..

  • Suri or Shiloh if only they did not grace the cover of people magazine every month!

And a few that made me laugh out loud were:

  • Shina from China
  • Shanster
  • Song (since her name is Cong)
  • Modessa (Mark asked, like Mudussa?)

The ones that are on our list so far, but still not sure and in no particular order:

Mataya-means gift from God

Skylar(except that i looked it up on webnursery and seems popular)

Mali (but will she go through life saying it is MALI not Molly!)



Sadee (SO cute, but Sage and Sadee, sounds confusing)

Merci (mark says no, but i just think of how God has shown HIS mercy here)

Maryn or Marys

Morey or Morie

Shyla, Shayla, Shayln ?

We have considered switching the letter, but I just hate to do that to her. Who knew choosing a name was so difficult!

Our agency wrote a poem about her and I will post that soon, SO sweet!

I just read your wonderful news on the heart yahoo group! I am so very happy for your family. I had also seen Odessa's file listed with CHI and have been praying for her family to find her. I read the beautiful story of how she became truly touching! We also have a heart baby from China who just turned 3. Congratulations and I look forward to following your journey. Of course you know this already, but your new daughter is gorgeous!!!

You just have to use an S or M!! What about Mailie, Maylee, or Mailee? Or Mylee, my 14 year old daughter has a friend with that name.
