Baby Girl Morris will be named...

Lucy Susannah
Here's how it came to be: I had seen "Lucy" on several name sites and liked it, but really hadn't given it a second thought. Then one day my friend Darcy sent me a text message with some name suggestions, and Lucy was one of them. It then dawned on me that my mother-in-law's middle name is Lucille, so Lucy could be named after her. I wanted to incorporate my mom, Susan, in there too of course so that's where the Susannah came from. After I suggested it to Richard, he loved it, and it just felt right. I was like "Ah ha...Lucy, that's who is in my belly" like it had been her name all along and I just had to discover it, if that makes any sense.
Anyway, we told our families and then my mom told me that I actually have a great-aunt named Lucy (she goes by her middle name so I never knew it was her first name) and my Granny's grandmother was also Lucy, so there's lots of Lucy connections on both sides of our families.
So there you have it, Lucy Susannah Morris should be here in about 3 1/2 months!
I also wanted to say a big thank you for the warm welcome back to Bloggyville and for all the kind and encouraging words. Everything will work out fine, pregnancy hormones and all. Last night I had a meltdown and cried because I couldn't get our printer to print, and because I can't text as fast on my new Blackberry Curve 2 as I could on my old Blackberry Pearl..you know, really earth shattering catastrophes:)

That's such a cute name and it sounds like it was just meant to be!

Btw, hormones are totally to blame over the crying over texting. I cried over guacamole when my grandmother passed away - I blamed it on hormones because it happened to be that time too. LOL

Unfortunately, the hormone thing doesn't disappear for a long time. Even after she's born.

I love Lucy! We have friends that named their daughter Lucy, and I love that it is a name that doesn't get used as much anymore. It's kind of unique now :)

I like the name lucy a lot too. Apparently I get my "looks" (ha!) from my great aunt Lucy. Maybe that's why I like the name so much. :D

Nikki said...

I just found your blog and think it is wonderful! Lucy is such a great name and as the Mommy of two little girls, girls names are really hard to come up with! Good luck I hope you don't my following!

I love it. And when I say Susannah I add a little southern twang ... no idea, but it sounds fabulous.
