the name annoucement..sorry

Ok, after thinking about this for 6 years and then changing our minds at the last minute, Michael and I 100% agree on what our daughters name will be!! Should I tell you, or make you wait the next 2 years? Hmmm, let me think about it!
Lets start with what we ruled out

Elizabeth
Rachel
Rebecca

All of these were very close possibilities..


So, where is the drumroll.. Baby Christopher's name is (I dont say will be because she is already in our hearts)


Lynn Marie Christopher
Now for the explanation
Lynn - I always said I would never use it as a middle name but we think its very lovely. Michaels moms name is Linda and her mom used to call her Lynn. My beloved sister is Kelly Lynn and I can't think of a more beautiful person. My friend Rebekah is Rebekah Lynn and she is a very special person to me.
Marie- Both of Michaels grandmothers had names of Mary. Mary and or Marie have a meaning of "wished for child" How could we not use it? You know how sometimes a name can make you smile? I got to know a special family while working at our hospital. A very special girl named Catherine Marie quickly entered my heart along with the rest of her family. these names we have chosen are special. The more I say this name, the more I love it..
Come on China, bring us baby Lynn!!!!!!!! I dont think you can come up with any nicknames, let me know if you can think of some!!!

What a beautiful name!!

KarenW said...

Beautiful name! I didn't know that Marie means "wished for child". My youngest child's middle name is Marie and she was wished for, or more accurately, prayed for by my daughter Hannah.

I think that is a beautiful name. Very lovely.

Amy said...

Amy & Michael, Thank you for sharing! I've been anxiously awaiting and it was worth the wait. I always loved both those names. I either wanted to change my name to Amy Lynn or Amy Marie (after Marie Osmond). I love the explaination and cannot wait to meet Lynn Marie!

I can't think of a nickname, but I can already picture calling her by both names. What do you think?

Monica said...

That is a beautiful name. We are rather partial to the name "Lynn" which is why we chose the sound-a-like "Lin" for the Chinese family name we chose for our three children (a full Chinese name encorporated into each of their middle names...Lin followed by their original Chinese given name for each of them as their new middle names).

Lynne Marie has a melodic lilt to it! I like it! ...And your daughter will cherish her name even more because of all the meaning associated with it.

It's a beautiful name and very fitting for the new Christopher addition, I think! It must have been great fun going over names together! I'm really excited for you and pray for you and little Lynn Marie daily (it will be nice to actually lift her name before God).

Janene said...

Marie is my middle name! I've always loved it ~ great choice. Lynn is so different for a first name...but it's one of those names that will work well for adults and kids alike.

Great job! I'm so excited for you!

Cyndi said...

Deanna said...

Annette said...

Lovely name and even better when it has such a special meaning behind it! We are still torn between two names, so we haven't announced anything yet. I'm afraid I might change my mind if I commit too early! Thanks for visiting my blog the other day!!!

Lindsey said...

I love the name! Great choice =) i especially love that it has meaning behind it, as does Chloe's middle name so i can totally understand how special that will make it! One of my dear friends' middle name is Lynn and so is my cousins name..so i like it too.hehe =)

Debi said...

Beautiful!

Susanne said...

My husband is "Christopher Lynn", and I have always loved "Amber Marie" (only our last name didn't jive well with Amber,or Marie for that matter, so we ended up with an "Emilee Grace"!)All this to say, I LOVE THE NAME!!! Prayers and blessings on you as you await the arrival of your precious little girl!

Tracy said...

Lynn is a beautiful name. My sister's name is Lynn.

Lynne said...

It's hard to come up with a nickname for Lynn (or Lynne in my case). When I was a little kid, my cousins called me Lindy Pindy - hated it!

With such a pretty name, you don't need a nickname.

Doris & Dan said...

What a classic and feminine name! Good job!

Jen said...

I love it! Isn't it wonderful to have a name now? We still just have Emma figured out... wish a middle name would come to us! We're waiting to see what her Chinese name is, but I'd like to have an alternative just in case.
