Ummm More Name Fun!?!

You don't mind do you? Really? I love to write down the names we're thinking about simply so I don't forget them and I also really like getting your input.

For those of you who know my precious husband you are aware of his nerdiness. Don't worry it doesn't offend him, he knows and I think it's HOT so we're good. Anyway, he loves words and their meanings. I find the longer I'm with him I am becoming more and more of a word nerd myself.

Jared told me the other day that he really liked the name Quinten. I do and have for quite a while. My only issue is people tend not to enunciate Quinten and you end up with Quih-hen. His reason for bringing it up is that it means 5th, 5, or 5th son. I love that! I also really like Quint and we could call him that just like Elijah is Eli interchangeably.

Last night while praying for our baby's safety we started talking about names again mainly because it brings us comfort and it's exciting. We like Nathanial for a middle name. So you end up with Quinten Nathanial Altic. Doesn't it have a nice ring to it?! We really try to evaluate every possible angle and we realized his initials would be QNA. We both giggled simply because this pregnancy and our decision for a 5th has definitely encouraged several Q & A sessions with family and friends.

So there you have it. What do you think? I do believe Quinten has out ranked Max at this point in the game. Be prepared for the enunciation police if we go with it. More updated reports to come.
