I ALWAYS get comments on my boys names. My eldest is Chance and my youngest is Lion. Yep, as in, the animal Lion. Not an alternative spelling for Leon.
What's the story behind the names? Not much really, we just liked them. I suggested Chance to my husband during early pregnancy, he loved it and then that was it! With Lion, we were waddling (okay well, maybe the waddling was just me) into hospital still arguing about names. Matt wanted Sebastian, but that was too common for me. So we settled on Sebastian Lion. I called him Lion and it kind of stuck. Now he can talk, he calls himself Lion (I win, haha Matt).
There are SO many beautiful, unusual names out there now. Did you know, that in 1970, 60% of kids had names that were in the top 20 names? Now, in 2017, less than 5% of kids have names that are ranked in the 20 most popular. We are LOVING being brave, bold and out there with our babies monikers. I could have a thousand babies and use all the names I adore! But I'm going to list them here for you instead.
- Emmeline (My cousins name! I love it so much)
- Lane (perfect middle name too)
What do you think? Do you have any that you could add to the list? I love hearing new names! Make sure you tag your friends who are expecting babies.
