Baby Boy's Special Name.

I always knew that when it was time for me to have children I wanted to use family names.
Names are so important and I love that my son's name has such a special meaning to me and my husband.

In the country song "Where I'm From" by Jason Michael Carroll, there is a line that reads...
"...gave their children grandmothers maiden name."

Well, that is exactly what we did.

Our baby boy will be called...
Miller Harris Griffin

He is named after both of his grandmothers.
My mother's maiden name is Miller and Jonathan's mother's maiden name is Harris.
A special name for a special boy :)

We can't wait to meet Miller in March!

My maiden name is Miller, and I love it for a boy or girl name, though we haven't used it for either of our girls.

By your formula, our child would be Meeker Hill Kelley :0)

LOVE it!! So special! The girls middle names come from family names....Kayla's middle name is Grace: after my great-grandmother's middle name. Jamie has 2 middle names for a special reason: Lynn comes from Greg's side of the family in general (A LOT of the females have it as a middle name). Acie comes from Greg's grandfather....it was his middle name & he died 2 weeks (to the day) prior to Jamie being born. He was SO looking forward to meeting Jamie, but didn't. So to honor him, we have her a second middle name.

Love his name Valerie! I totally want to do this too, but unfortunately that would leave me with Cartier and Boothe, and well...neither of those really fit. I am glad your family names are usable and CUTE! I used to babysit a little girl named Miller, I love it for both sexes. Happy for y'all!

I SO love this. So special.

That wouldn't really work for us (Smith and Sims? haha) but it would with OUR grandmothers' maiden names, they have really cool ones. :) We'll see...for now I'll just live vicariously through you and your cuteness haha.
