A-Z Challenge: G is for...

I was going to do GARDEN for G since I love to garden, but I have been so busy the last several weeks that I haven't been in my garden yet this spring so not much to talk about.  I did buy some cool weather seeds this morning so hopefully this weekend I will get it cleaned up, tilled, and plant my spinach, peas, radishes, carrots, and mesclun.

My other choice for G is GIRL.  The ultrasound technician said she was 112% sure that my baby is a girl and got multiple looks down there to confirm it.  Everyone keeps asking if we have a name, but we don't yet.  We have a list of ideas going, but nothing we love yet.

We like more traditional names, but nothing too popular at the moment.  We also avoid gender neutral names.
We don't want to go with a J name since all five of my nephews have J names.  We are avoiding A names because of Austin's name, and B's because our last name starts with a B.  We would go with an A or B name if we really loved it though.

We are leaning towards Grace for the middle name because that is Dustin's maternal grandmothers name.  Along those lines we are kind of looking at first names that somehow incorporate Ann because that is my middle name, my Mom's middle name and my sister's middle name is Joanne.  We don't want to go with Ann outright because that is my nieces name.

Some of the Ann names we are considering:
  • Andrea
  • Melanie
  • Hannah
  • Morgan
Some of the other names we have been talking about:
  • Shelby
  • Katy
  • Melissa
  • Chelsea


  1. Hannah Grace has a nice ring to it :)
    Glad to hear that things were looking good on your test and you know its a girl so you can get ready!

  2. Congratulations, Sarann. I'm certain you'll pick a great name 8-)

  3. Awww, so exciting! I like Hannah, personally...but you'll know the right name when you decide!

  4. I have to agree with the others that liked Hannah. My cousin named her daughter Hannah and she is a wonderful young lady. So, the name has very positive associations for me. I must admit that I also like the name Morgan (however, I know a guy named Morgan so it is a little more gender neutral). Chelsea is also a name I like. Have fun picking!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
