Choosing A Name

When it comes to picking baby names, Camaron and I are the worst. Well, mostly just me. Wait, I guess I should clarify myself; I'm the worst when it comes to deciding on BOY names. We had the name Sloane picked out for a girl before I was even pregnant with Fox.

I was looking at pictures of baby nurseries online one night, when we were still living in Provo, and came across a really cute one that had the baby's name framed above the crib. The name in the frame was Sloane. Of course I immediately thought of Sloane Peterson from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I've seen that movie ...well, a lot. And remember that time I was Sloane for Halloween ...twice? I had never thought of using that name for a future child though. But once I considered it, I fell in love with it. Camaron was on board right away too.

Picking Sloane's middle name was all Camaron. He told me one night, a few weeks before Sloane was born, that he had thought of another girl name that he really liked. "Maggie." I really liked it too, and I loved that Camaron picked it all on his own. I asked if it would be short for anything. "Margaret," Camaron said. Loved it.

When the baby was born and Camaron announced that it was a girl, we knew right away that she was Sloane. And we kept Margaret by using it as her middle name. And she's great.


  1. We're having a hard time picking out a name for our girl, coming in September. Sloane is a good one! (Don't worry, not stealing.) And hey, I've followed your blog for a while and am now realizing you're in AZ. We just moved here (Chandler) a month and a half ago! Give me a shout out if you need any more friends.


  2. I love the name Sloane. Cute! Didn't know you were in Arizona either. I am in Arizona too! (same as Beverly Chandler) Too funny. Small world. Would love for you to hop on over to my blog and link up today!

  3. Sloane is one of my girl's names, too :) I actually really love it for a little boy also, without the E :) I love reading about how others name their little ones!
