Tracy & Erik’s Adoption Profile – Questions You May Have For Us #3 – Baby Names
What do we plan on naming our son or daughter?
If it is a girl, Erik and I have agreed that it will be either Carley Morgan or Caitlin Hope. These are not names of anyone in our families. They are just names that we like. I really like Hope as a middle name because it reflects us perfectly – we have no greater hope than another child in our lives. If it is a boy, the honest answer is that we have not agreed on anything yet. I guess you could say that a boy’s name is still a work in progress!
It’s a funny story about the way we came up with Colby’s name. In other posts, I have talked about getting the phone call and driving to the hospital the next day to get Colby. On the way to the hospital, we were discussing various names. I can even remember the exact traffic light where we were when we agreed on the name Colby. Not that we name children after TV show personalities, but at the time Colby was born, Surivivor was (and still is) a popular show. “Colby” was one of the castaways on the show. We were driving along and throwing out various names. I said “Colby”, and then we both decided that we liked it because it was different. So, “Colby Andrew” he became!
