Choosing a name was very important to me, but equally important to my husband, Reuben. Important to each of us for different reasons.. When we named our son, his middle name, Keaton, was named after my grandfather. Reuben wanted to continue the trend of naming our child after family, but he didn’t have anyone specific in mind. I was really keen to the first name Isabella and would ask Reuben often for
his opinion! Finally, we both agreed upon Isabella for her first name, but still unsure about the middle name.
Even though this will sound like somewhat of a cliche, we decided on the middle name when we were shopping at Buy Buy Baby. We were both crazy about Victoria, but not sure it sounded good together.. We were shopping around the store looking at bedroom furniture when we came across adorable, handcrafted toy chests. The two on display were, Isabella and Victoria. And then our decision was made! Isabella Victoria 🙂 The significance of the Victoria, related to family would be Reuben’s mom, Vickie.
We couldn’t be more happy with our decision and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our gorgeous baby girl!
Do you have any standards or family traditions you go by when naming your children?!
