Top 2 Tuesday - Children Names

Top 2 Favorite Names

I love when families have traditions or family history behind their child/children name(s)... and as of right now, my family does not have any traditions.. but with Justin and my middle names both being "R" (Justin Ray and Lindsey Rene), i want our kids to have an R middle name - so that we all have the same last 2 initials.... so with that being said - here are my kids names

Girls

Vera Rea
Emmerson "Emmie" Rian

Boys
Everett Ruggerio
Graham Robert

** Ruggerio was my mom's family's name before they came over on the boat from Italy, they had to change it when they came to America to Rogers - and I have always loved the idea of having the middle name of a child as Ruggerio - and I think its a way to carry on part of my Italian heritage**

***Robert is my dad's first name and Justin's dad's middle name - so its appropriate to incorporate it into a boys middle name (And it starts with an R)***

So not to put the cart in front of the horse -I completely realize that I am happily dating my boyfriend, I don't think there is a child in our future anytime soon... but its never too soon to plan - right?!!?

If Grace had been a boy, Emerson was one of the names we were thinking of. I like it better as a girls name though :) Vera is beautiful too!! Oh, I forgot to answer you- I waited 5 1/2 years for a ring ;)
