We have 5 children. Courtney, Hannah, Alquin (Quinn) Abby, and Avery. I must admit, I made some mistakes naming my children.. like my last 3 have the same initials. Now that they're older I question why in name of baby Jesus I would do that? I think at the time I thought it was cool.. or I was too tired to really put much thought into it.. whatevs. When my twins were born I wanted to look at them so I could see which one looked like an Abigail, and which one looked like and Avery... well, since they were identical twins.. and babies.. they looked the exact same.. so I went old school....alphabetically and named baby A Abigail and Baby B Avery. I would suggest though, you go with at least a two syllable name.. because when they are teenagers.. you can enunciate effectively.
