  • My first daughter was named after my husbands grandmother (Lillian) and my mother (Grace).
    If I ever have another daughter my heart is set on naming her Bettie (for my grandmother Betty). but I cant think of any good middle names.
    My mother in laws name is Patricia Kay. But I hate the sound of Bettie Kay or Bette Patricia.

    Bettie Kathleen? Bettie Katherine?

    Honestly, I really wanted to name a girl Talpha Magnon after my great grandmother and her sister (American Indian names) but my husband and family are horrified at the idea.


    My other thing is, a boy name. My brother J.D. is very important to me and I would love to call my son by the same initials. But I will never name any kid of mine James Donnie because I despise the man he was named after.
    Anyway, any ideas for a first and middle name with those initials?
    I can only think of Jacob. A cousin suggested Jacob DeLany which I kind of like.

    Btw my last name is Brandt (D is silent unless you want to pronounce it the German way which sounds like you're coughing up a loogie) if that helps.

    Woooow this post is long! lol

  • Jacob Daniel? David? Davis? Davison? I like Delaney but I think its one of those that morphed into a girl's name now.

    I like Bettie Katherine.
    What is your middle name? Will that fit with Bettie?

  • Jacob Dylan? Jeffery, Joseph, Jamie, Jeremiah, Jeremy, Jonas, Jonah....there are lots of boy 'J' names...just ask the Duggar family, lol!

    I like Bettie Kay, but since you don't I also like Katherine. Why not use on the American Indian name as a middle name, like Bettie Magnon?
