What's My Name - What's My Name?

I am linking up with the fabulous Amanda from My Very Own Modern Family today. Her link up is all about NAMES... How did you pick your kid's names, animal's names, your own name, etc...

My name is Melanie Joy (Victoria is my Confirmation name - woot woot)... Honestly I think my mom just liked the name Melanie and I am CERTAIN she chose Joy because, well it was so fitting, OF COURSE...

Botox I need you...;)
First is my daughter... Her name is Elle Rose... Girls names are SO easy for me - I love just about every name. We threw around a few names - I wanted Joy or Alex - but we ended up with Elle Rose. No particular reason - just because we like it...

Last June - my she has changed so much in 6 months
Second we have my son... His name is Wesley Charles. Charles is my grandfather and E's grandfather's name, so we knew we wanted that. Boys names are extremely HARD for me. I like MANLY names - so we threw around EJ (Eric Jr.), Ian, Salvatore (Sal), etc... E was hell bent on Micah - I nixed that one and I was hell bent on Elliott. Awww Elle and Elliott;) BUT that got nixed... So one day I was SICK of picking names - so I sent E an email and said - choose the name and let me know today... and so Wesley it was... LOL...

Wes has changed so much too - agh!!!
And finally we have my doggie (she is a Morkie). We got her before ANY of the kids - she will be turning 8 this year. Asti Marie is her name. She was champagned colored and I love bubbly - so yep... there you have it - Marie who knows? I am weird like that...


Alright I am not very sentimental and I go with what I like... yep that pretty much sums me up... If you are interested head over and link up with Amanda - its fun to see how names are chosen.

Happy Tuesday

  7. I'm with you on picking what you like! I'm not sure why girls names were so easy to come up with for me, but it sounds like that was the case for you too!

  8. No kidding, Elle has change a ton in 6 months! She looks so 'baby' in that pic (and cute!).

    My dad picked both mine and my sister's names so I was dead set that I wouldn't let my husband choose the names himself. Well, guess what happened. :) If we have a girl this time the name will be one I have picked, we have kind of sort of agreed it on already. Boy name, tho? It'll probably be what he comes up w/ again. Ha! Oh well, he did a great job on the first two so I'm sure the third time would work out good, too. :)

  11. You and your family totally fit your names! Instead of Veronica, my mom was going to name me Miroslava. What the hell? Are we russian?
    Yeah, thank God she decided against that one.

  12. Isn't it funny how people just sort of fit their names? I also think that middle names can make or break a person's name.

    Love them both!

  16. I agree with you, boys names are hard. We didn't agree on boys names AT ALL and of course we had to pick two at the same time! We were literally in the ultrasound room when I suggested them and I was amazed that B said yes.
