This week's questions from [livejournal.com profile] thefridayfive - these questions were written by [livejournal.com profile] lillibet.

1) What would/did you name your first child? My first child was named Kelly Marie, after my stepsister Kelly, who passed away when we were 17 and with the middle name Marie because it is a family middle name in both my family and her father's.
2) What do you think makes a good name for a baby? Um. It has to sound good together, like flow when you say it (because you're going to be saying it a lot, and using that middle name for when you mean Serious Business).
3) What do you think makes a bad name for a baby? Eh. Personally, I don't like super unique spellings of common names, names that are super difficult to spell, or people who arbitrarily name their kids one thing but never intend to call them by that name and use a middle name instead.
4) What's a name that you love, but would never give a child? Why? Not sure.
5) Did your parents do a good job naming you? Sure.

ETA: When Harley was pregnant with Illy, and she first told us she was going to use the name Illiana, I wasn't sure about it, but after 7 years, I love it. With such a big family, we sometimes have to go out of the box to come up with names (which doesn't always work, lol, because we have about a dozen variations of Jo, Joe, or Joey in our immediate family, and then we have a Harley, a Hallie, a Haley, and a Hollie, as well as an Illy and a Lily, and a Jayden, two Jordyns, a Jordan, and a Jaylyn. It's definitely easy to write the wrong name or call the wrong person sometimes!)
