Thursday Thirteen – What’s Your Name, Little Girl, What’s Your Name?

Three sisters-in-law either just had, or are preparing to have baby girls. In fact, there are girls spread generously throughout McDaddy’s family. He has two sisters. And his side of the family has produced 8 nieces. (With another one due in a few short weeks!) Truly, we are a blessed bunch, but I’d be lying if I said I never thought about the fact that I will never had a daughter.

I have come to terms with the fact that I will never have a baby girl. The first thing I think about is having a girl to shop for. A girl to shop with. And, I do recognize that even if I would have had a daughter, there is a very small chance that she may not even like to shop. Still, I would bet the farm that she would. I’m over it now, but there was a time when it bothered my very much that McDaddy and I would not have a little girl. For as long as I can remember, I always thought of myself with a daughter.

Obviously, it was not to be.

No sisters.

No daughters.

Like I said, I’m over it.


[Please Lord, send me two beautiful, wonderful daughter in laws that are good to me my boys. And it would be really nice if they enjoy shopping and doing girl stuff like pedicures and spa days. Pretty please!!!!]

If I would have had a daughter, it would have taken me a sweet forever to choose a name for our little darling. When I am introduced to a little girl or hear a sweet little girl’s name, I smile wondering what name I would have chosen if indeed I would have had the chance. More than likely, her name would have been Kaylie Jayne, or Kaylie Renea, but if it came right down to it, I know it would be a bit tougher than just deciding right away what her name would be.

In McDaddy’s family, the little girl’s names are,

Kamme Annaliese, Kalli Annette, Mallory Renee, Annabelle Grace, Brooke Elizabeth, Madeline Day, Kessa Angeline, Lydia Kate and as of last I knew, a still unnamed baby girl that might be Vada, or Gwynn.

My favorite little girl names, in no particular order, are….

1. Allison

2. Sydney

3. Peyton

4. Clarie

5. Paige

6. Carley

7. Micah

8. Jolie

9. Kendall

10. Keeley

11. Olivia

12. Piper

13. Kaylie

I’d love to hear your suggestions for a little girl. My sister in law is a reader here at FITP, Inc. and I’m sure she’d love to hear your suggestions. And, I would too!

    Fun article….I thought I would have boys, but God blessed us with a beautiful girl, Natalie Marie. And Julie I am sure she would love to shop with you anytime!

    You can take one of mine anytime. I would suggest Katie. Abby isn’t much of a shopper. (Maybe one of them will be your daughter-in-law…Lord help you!)..Anyway, if I had another daughter, I would fight hard for Magdalyn Ruth (Maggie). I also like Olivia, Emily, and Madagyn. I oppose anything that begins with Kris, Cris, or Chris..that’s just me. Hope you are having a great trip.

    I wanted to add that Bethany is the BEST when it comes to shopping…she is delightful in the dressing room, right where you need it the most. 😉 Ever since she was 2 (she’s 4 now), she says things like, “That is so pretty on you, Mommy!” I’ve had friends ask if they could borrow her to go shopping with them. LOL

    Yes, I am definitely open to suggestions! haha I don’t remember feeling this stressed out about a name for Noah, but here we are weeks away and we don’t really know! I know God knows her name though, so hopefully it will be confirmed soon!
