Knowing how kids are, yes, I am sure that she would have been jlc85! It's sad but true. My sister's initials before she wed was ANL....Everyone called her anal in HS.
Aksel and Loralie are the German spellings of those names. My husbands father and grandparents are from Germany and still have most of his family over there. We are not trying to spell them wrong. Me and the Hubs have decied if it's a boy it will be Aksel John- he can go AJ for short, and if it's a girl it will be Lina-greman for music or Loralie Erin; her intials will be LEE, which is my Hubs middle name. We aren't gonna tell the grandparents what the names are until they are holding that baby in their arms at the hospital and the ink is dry on the birth certificate.
PS. Millie was my greatgrandmothers full first name and back in the day unique names were alot more common.
i think August is a beautiful name, we were originally thinking of that for our son but went with Judah (Hey Jude!). and for a little redheaded boy i think it's perfect, just think of the colors of Autumn (which was another name we thought of) the reds, golds, and browns.
and if he ever gets upset you can always pop in that movie August Rush it was so cute!
i got a lot of grief for wanting to name my child (had he turned out a girl) Alunaria which is a name i made up meaning moon song in elvish. my parents kept saying she would be called looney luna, but i didn't care it's a scientific fact that most babies that grow up with unique names become unique people and usually aren't susceptible to peer pressure.
ps: Ava and Loralie are beautiful without question.
I'm a redhead and 3 of my 4 kids are too. All kids get teased at some point in life. Over hair, height, weight, athletic abbilty, etc. Tell the grandparents that YOU will name YOUR kids. And that you will concider their suggestions IF YOU get to choose what the children will call the grandparents.
Lorelei is a beautiful name! I love it and it will be especially lovely on a red head! I am about to have a girl, but our boys names were either Jackson or Cooper for a first name and Rhett (as in Rhett Butler) for a middle name. Unique names are in right now! As are the old fashioned ones.
