Two First Names?

Hi Jennifer,

I’m just over 3 months along with my second child and my husband and I are slightly disagreeing about a girl’s name. We’ve decided on Abraham for a boy but for a girl we like Lottie Ann. What we’re disagreeing about is that I want to go with Lottie Ann as the first name and Margret at the middle name (we’d be honoring all grandmothers that way) but my husband thinks we should use the Lottie as the first name and Ann or Anne as the middle but to still call her “Lottie Ann”.

More about Loie

Hi Jennifer,

Where does Loie Come From?

Hello Jennifer,

I was wondering if you could help me out with the meaning of the name “Loie.” A little girl in my family died in the 1920’s and that was the name on her tombstone.

Don’t Worry, Bee Happy

Hi Jennifer,

My name is Melisha, pronounced muh-lish-uh. I have looked for years and can’t find a meaning for my name. I know my mom wasn’t sure what my name would be if I was a girl until she was watching TV one day and a shampoo commercial came on. [Read more...]
