Me vs. My Husband xMoMMY LiSAx 21 kids; San Diego, California 81 posts

Today I'm 27 weeks pregnant and I still have no name for my daughter. My husband and I just cannot agree. I think I'm being more than flexible on the name because I've actually made the effort to choose several different names of my own that I would be happy with. He has not made much effort choosing names he likes. He has only one name that he's obsessing over, and I wouldn't mind giving in to him, except that I absolutely hate the name! (No offense to anyone who shares that particular name)



So we've reached the point where we're just going to poll and see if that helps. Obviously the poll is up there, so please do me a favor and vote for what you think sounds best! And I'm not saying whose name(s) are whose because I want the poll to be unbiased.



This is a list of the names and their meanings according to a ginormous baby name book I have:



1.) Abigail-Hebrew; the source of a father's joy
2.) Devlyn-Gaelic; having a fierce bravery
3.) Liberty-English; an independent woman/having freedom
4.) Caydence-Latin; rhythmic and melodious/ a musical woman
5.) Kaitlyn-Greeak; one who is pure and virginal
6.) Trinity-Latin; the holy three
7.) Makenna-Gaelic; daughter of the handsome man
8.) Willow-English; from the willow tree/ symbol of healing and grace

Abigail, then Willow and Liberty as a distant third.



Devlin is masculine, Cadence isn't spelled correctly, Caitlin is lovely with the traditional spelling, Trinity is tacky and McKenna is too trendy / overdone.

I like the first two the best even though I'm not a fan of the middle name. Grace would go well with those two. Abigail Grace would be pretty.

Middle name is set :\
All my daughters have family names for their middle name and my son's first name is after my father. This daughter's middle name is after my husband's oldest sister.

I still won't tell whose is whose :D
But I will admit Makenna was one of mine. I originally wanted Mackenzie (ever since watching Father of the Bride II when it came out), but a family member already used it for her daughter,

Devlyn is a feminine form of Devin. And there is more than one way to spell Caydence.

LMAO - no, sorry but changing one letter does not make it a "feminine" form. Devlin is masculine, period - a Y does not change it's etymology.



And no - Cadence is a WORD, do you always randomly spell words however you want? It looks illiterate.

Makenna Michelle Myers ugly.

And you appear to have nothing better to do with your time than to be a thorn in someone's side.



Yes, adding, omitting, or changing a letter can change a name or word from masculine to feminine and vice versa. To claim otherwise shows you lack knowledge of other languages (i.e. Spanish) in which this is common practice.



We all know cadence is a word. However, it is being used as a name. Everyone knows a NAME can be spelled however you'd like. Many people even create names nowadays. Claiming there is only one way to spell the NAME Caydence is moronic. It's the same as saying there is only one way to spell Ashley/Ashlee/Ashleigh/Ashly or Rachel/Rachael or even Kaitlyn/Caitlyn/Katlynn (as you've already pointed out), etc.



But, I grow tired of you. Happy trolling.
