What will the stork be delivering?

Special Delivery...

Ok people, you all were right last time you were asked to vote.. .  I again want to know what you all think.  Will the Downs clan have a boy to level the playing field and bring balance to the house? Or will the ladies continue to rule the house…  enforcing tea parties before bedtime, princess themes in (what was supposed to be) daddy’s mancave, and cute/adorable ballerina Tutus as the must have fashion accessory?  Although I LOVE the endless hugs and kisses from my sweet lady Seanna, I would like to have a boy to fight the good fight with me when the ladies want to do girly things.

Oh man… this is scary.  I’ll admit it, I’m scared all over again.  I can’t imagine two girls.. I don’t know how I am going to do it.  I’ll be outnumbered…  3-1.

*Insert Drum Roll*

What to name our baby

stork girl

Ok, so Monica and I are flip flopping back and forth as to what we should name our daughter.  We thought we were set on what were going to name her.  I even made a public declaration of her name (I wrote about it here).  But it seems that sometimes we are being given that proverbial advice to “give the kid a chance and don’t ruin her name”.  Are we that crazy that the names we have chosen for her only make sense to us?  Whenever we tell someone her proposed name,  we sometimes  get a “that’s different” response or a blank stare.  Yeah, a blank stare that says, “Huh?!?”   Most people like the names we have chosen, but the blank stares we sometimes get makes us second guess ourselves.

So, in a effort to gain some common sense, I’ve decided to see what everyone thinks of the names we have also considered.  As of right now, the top choice is Sirena Venezia.   But we are strongly considering these two names:

Seanna.  There are two reasons I love this name.  First, it means “God is Gracious”; second, it seems like a suitable replacement for “Sirena” because it contains the word “Sea” which keeps the whole aspect of the sea that the name Sirena has.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you must read this.

Another name that we really like is Sofia, because we find it “sweet sounding”.  It means “Wisdom”. And it goes very well with the name Sirena or Seanna.

Anyways, we are interested in knowing what you guys think, here are the choices and combinations of the names:

I think that it’s really going to come down to the wire.  We really love all 4 names.  When the baby is born sometime this week and the nurse gives me the paperwork to fill out, I hope I don’t blank out and put some other random name instead.

*Also, I’m going to have a live webcam at the hospital that give a live feed of the baby once she’s born so stay tuned*
