In case you were curious what the girl's name was that we had chosen, it was....
Ava ends with the "ah" sound, of course, just like our other girl's names.
And Susanne was for my grandma (my mom's mom) who passed away over a year ago. She was the definition of a prayer warrior and I would've been honored to have a daughter named after her.
In truth, I loved Ava and am kinda sorry we won't get to use it.
We are, barring divine intervention, done having kids so that was not a hint in any way, shape or form!
Boy names - you'd think by our 4th one we would've had a boys name we'd just been dying to use. But no! In fact, we were not totally sold on any of the boy names we decided on with the others - we just decided on them cause we had to pick something! Not at all like our girl names where we KNEW we had the right one every time! Anyway.....
Emma would've been Brendan if she had been a boy. My cousin had a Brenden after Emma was born so...
Sophia would've been Evan. (We were still debating between Joseph and Evan on the way to the hospital)
Olivia also would've been Evan. But after she was born I heard of some girls being named Evyn so we had to change it again! (We like BOY names for a boy).
We decided on Jacob's name only 5 days before he was born. :)
