Smile Name Laurie's Baby!

Laurie is due to give birth soon and I wanted to do my part by helping to name her baby. Let's all pitch in and do what we can! William Lee or Sarah Elizabeth. Everyone chime in with a boy's name and a girl's name. Come on, Team! Let's go! Laurie needs us!

Ignatius Eugene for a boy or Imogene Gwendolyn for a girl.

Wait--was I supposed to be serious?!?

I have always loved the name "Kate" for a girl--sweet, simple and reminding of someone wonderful and "Sam" for a boy--solid, but yet still soft and kind.

Oooo...I can't wait to have a thread for baby naming.

Take care,

Finish Herceptin 5/9/2008

Wink Name Laurie's Baby !!

How about Malia? That is a Hawaiian name. It means Mary in English. I heard that it is also a reference to maile, a beautiful Hawaiian fern. Barak Obama's oldest daughter is named Malia. I also like the reference to Miracle that Steph suggested.
Does Laurie know we are making suggestions? I guess she knows now with all these postings.
12 years and counting
Lucky 13 !! I hope so !!!!!!

hmmmm, I'm not sure if she knows or not, Elaine. I didn't think to ask her permission. I just sorta went off the reservation and did it myself.

Hey Laurie, I know you're from a town that loves football--I heard they even put a little football in all the baby boys' cribs in the hospital nursery...so I guess my personal favorites of Seth and Oliver might be too soft for a future football star. Hmmm, I loved Woman of Steel's suggestion of Jasper and I guess you can't go wrong with Joseph or Adam. Sometimes you just have to see the baby first to know for sure--

diagnosed July 2001, at age 36
large tumor, 11+ nodes
Stage IIIb, er/pr-, Her2+
treated with A/C, weekly Taxol
radiation, + year of Herceptin
on clinical trial. double mastectomy
followed by reconstruction
