29 Weeks

Sunday, January 29, 2012

 We finally decided on a name!!
Her name will be Lakynn Kay Hatch 
(pronounced Lay-ken)


How far along? 29 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: about 14 lbs now
Maternity clothes? Still buying things I can wear now when I am pregnant and for when I am not ha!

Stretch marks? Nope.
Best moment this week: Deciding on the babies name, buying her more outfits, decorating a little more of the nursery, I love everything about getting ready for her to come!!
Miss Anything? Being able to sit through a movie and be comfortable ha!
Movement: She is SO active! Devan saw her moving through my shirt this week! Kinda of crazy to not only feel her kicking but see it!!
Food cravings: umm none this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show yet: Yep! Everywhere I go people comment on the baby bump!
Gender: Girly girl!
Labor Signs: I wish.. well not really. It's still a little soon but I want her to be here now!
Belly Button in or out? Out!
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, Happy!
Looking forward to: Doctor appointment! :)
Okay so Devan and I had a pretty difficult time picking out the name! I kind of thought we were never going to agree on one! I love unique names! My name is fairly unique and I loved never having to share a name with someone else in my school or work. Devan, on the other hand, likes unique but not too unique of a name. 
At first we both liked (Devan actually loved) the name Taylee.. Then I did a little research and decided there are quite a few Taylee's out there and that it was too common of a name. So it was a no for the name Taylee.
Then I thought of the name McKarty.. Which I still absolutely LOVE this name, but sadly Devan literally HATED it! I tired and tried to talk him into it! Then I figured I couldn't name her something that he really didn't like, so out went the name McKarty.
Then we tried to combined both of our favorite names.. McKarty and Taylee and came up with Maylee. We both liked it but wasn't in love with the name.. So we kept thinking..
I know of a little girl named Nayvie and love the name! Devan actually liked it too! So for a minute we thought about naming her that but then decided it just wasn't suppose to be her name!

Then one day Devan came home from work and said he was drove past a sign that said "LAKIN" and asked what I thought about it. I actually LOVED the name! We both Loved it! YAY! I decided to change up the spelling a little bit to make it more of a girly name and that is how we came up with
LAKYNN!
The middle name just kind of seemed to go with it! There isn't any family meaning behind it, just a cute name we both liked! :)

Here are the top 5 names we picked between..


Here are all the names that made "the list"

Taylee
McKarty
Nayvie 
Maylee
Kamree
Nykee
Taislee
Taigley
Tenley
McKamey
McKartnee
Tayvie

  6. My brother's name is Lakin (Lake-In). I have never heard of it (aside from a last name), as anyone's name except my bro's before! Very pretty for a girl, and I love the -'ynn' to feminize it! :)

Daughter- Waverly, Son- Caymyn (pronunced Kay-man), Daughter- Delylah (pronounced De-li-lah) and Daughter-Daphney. We are expecting number five in Jan and his names will be Leyton (pronounced Lay-ton. If you couldn't tell I also have a fovorite letter. Y. Good luck and contrats!!!

    1. These aren't even names. They're just strings of letters pushed together as though she pulled tiles out of a Scrabble bag. I feel awful for these kids who will become *adults* who have to introduce themselves as managers and CEOs and interview prospects. Who have to spend their *entire lives* explaining to everyone they meet how to spell and pronounce their names. Poor kids.

      Delete
    2. you do realize that they can change it if they want??

      Delete
    3. Have you ever actually done any research on how people go about legally changing their names? Because it is a very long and very tedious (not to mention expensive) process that not very many people even have a means of doing, and one that you can't even go through until you turn 18. This all, of course, completely disregarding the notion that the copious amounts of bullying the child is (more than) likely to suffer from won't drive them to depression/suicide.

  14. I know this will not be popular. But moms, think before you name your child. Will that child like THEIR name?? "They can always change it later," yes they can. But it will cost THEM money and they will have to write down the stupid name you gave them any time they fill out a background check. For the love of all things holy don't screw your kid over from day one. Give them a normal first name and you can fuck up their middle name all you want. -Every Kid Who Had "Creative" Parents

    1. Seconded.

      I have a pretty tame name, yet if anyone sees it they go into "find out what that's about and try to pronounce it" mode. Thinking, well she has a boy's name so her parents must have done something with the pronunciation to make it more feminine. It's always just awkward in the end when I tell them my name is pronounced as it looks, my dad got it from an 80's music video, and I have a cousin with the same name spelling and all. If they want weird, they can have my brother Storm Justice. He's only 5 or 6 now so it's only just begun for him.

  15. sure its nice to give your child a unique name bit at least give it a normal spelling. Lakynn is the stupidest spelling ever and not only is it going to be hard for eveyone to spell and even to pronounce with that spelling. the poor child will have to live its entire life correcting people on how to spell its name cus its mother wanted to be special. lak- yn? la-kin? lake-ynn? just spell it hows its pronounced Lay-ken!

    1. I KNOW! At least learn proper grammar and letter pronunciation before spelling her name like that, the first thing in my head when i read it is "Lack-in". Doesn't sound so cute and unique now does it? Shes going to hate having to correct everyone who says her name for the first time all her life.

      Delete
    2. You know, my name is very weird too. At least in my country, where we speak a language with latin roots. So everytime I say what my name is, people have it wrong. And I have to correct their spelling every single time. It used to bother me more when I was younger, but now... What can one do? I can't change my name because my mother chose it for me, I think it would sound disrespectful (seeing it as I wouldn't like my child to change their name or something similar).

  25. 50% of the people who commented on your blog are being ridiculous. Do none of them realize that children are not the ones who make fun of people for they're names? Its parents who name their children Emma, Hannah, or Tyler. ALL names were "made up" somewhere down the line. Heck, even the name Jesus was "made up" . Being rude and closed minded are learned traits, and by saying things like this to an expecting mother who had already expressed her love for the name, is a prime example of that. And people who name their children from the top five most common name list should be happy. Because maybe when your child starts kindergarten there will only be 4 others in their class with the same name, instead of five. As for the psychological effects of unique names: check yourself. There are also psychological effects for naming your child a common name. And I mean if you want your child to be referred to by not knly their first name but also the the first letter of their surname as well then go for it. Just think "Taylor! No not Taylor S, or Taylor C. I was speaking to Tayor A." There are two sides to every penny. Just because you called heads doesn't mean you'll win every time.

    1. FYI, most names were not "made up" but were taken from common language. Jesus is the Latinized version of the Aramaic "yeshua," which means "deliverance." Ashley, for example, is from the Irish "aisling," which means "dream." Manuel is from the Hebrew "emmanuel" which means "God is with us." 99.9% of Judeo-Christian names are derived from words that have specific translations in their root language.

      "Mc" is a shortened version of the Irish "macc," which is a patronymic that means "son of," which means that "McKarty" literally means "son of Karty." Great name for a girl. The others are just jibberish, hacked and sewed together morphemes that have zero meaning in any language other than "Good God, my mother has no idea the hell she is going to put me through."

    2. Jesus was a very common name when Jesus of Nazareth was alive. It's comparative to John now a days. It would have very much been like "Jesus! No not Jesus M, or Jesus R, Jesus C!"

    3. great comment Luke! my name is Polina for example, common in eastern europe. it derives from apollon, the greek god of poetry and other things. so it has a meaning, like most names have. and even when it doesnt and you wanna make up a name use common freaking sense. nayvie?? really? just name your kid navy it'll make it easier and prettier looking for EVERYONE. 90% of people in western europe dont know my name and have trouble both writing and pronouncing it bc they never heard it before, eventho my name has no difficult parts, no hidden sounds, no hidden letters, etc. how do you expect someone to know how to write your childs name when you name it ashileighly. just name it ashley and chill.

    4. @ky this is dumb af. just because you don't want to name your kid "McKarty" after Joseph McCarthy or some shit, doesn't mean you're going to stick the #1 most common name for new humans of your year.

    2. yeah? And there was a dude with the last name Mütter, which means mother. He has a museum named after him. The name means nothing. what matters is the person. So shut the fuck up.

    3. No need to get aggressive! My comment wasn't meant to be offensive.
      In my opinion, last names are something else ... I have an unfortunate last name myself. But if my last name was my first, I would have been bullied in school. A lot.

      In the end, the child is American so it doesn't matter, hence nobody really speaks German.

      Mütter? That's a cool last name, if you ask me.

      Delete
  47. While I think all these names are ridiculous, some of these comments are just cruel and ugly. They've got a point, but there's no need to be so rude about it. It's not like this woman is beating her children-it's a name for god's sake! Who gives a crap what she names her child. It's HER child and saying that she needs to be "euthanized" for it is disgusting. If she wants to give her daughter a shitty name, let her!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm from Tumblr lol...but I just have to admit that when I first saw this meme I thought that those were the names of all her other children and since birth that many times is kinda repetitive and old hat...maybe she was just like "it's time for another one, I'll cross these out." I quickly realized that these were all names associated with one little baby. Thank goodness my firstborn was a boy, because my ex husband wanted to name him "Hanover Gillian." Which is still not as bad as the fact that my mom wanted to name me Kristin and my last name is Church, which is also not as bad as the fact that she wanted to name my brother Charles Chaplin Church and call him Choo Choo. Gotta give props to my dad for at least changing our first names to Michelle and Steven. But his own grandmother refused to call him that so she called him Jeff until the day he died. One time I thought about naming a little girl child Flora, or Guthrie....but my friend said "Whaat? I will just call her 'Hey You!"
    So that stopped me in my tragically inclined plan. I also had a friend that all of her children had be named with 7 letters that included a y. Kyliegh, Brayden, Keypher, and...wait for it....Zepheyr. which is tragic enough until you realize his last name includes Schnorf. Those are pretty bad, but the winner on my list is the Mormon family that lived down the street from me as a kid....Windsor, Wyndham, Chelsea, Chattham, Brighton, Bristol, and Hadley. Did his missionary work in England thus the names, and too many times, hence the number. They weren't done, either. After Hadley was born I heard her laugh and tell a friend, "Pshhh this one basically just fell out.' Names are hard to pick and hard to live with....there were about 20 Michelles at my school but only one Chumpavan Pudgepan.

  51. Tweaking spellings is a great way to be unique! You could name your child Taeleour (pronounced "Taylor").

    Seriously. Stop mashing consonants with an over abundance of 'y's hoping that if you try it enough times, you might accidentally make a name in the same way that monkeys with typewriters eventually write Shakespeare. Heyjayley, Fayla, Ryayalayey.... Do the world a favour, buy a baby names book. I'd rather be another Ashley than a Karyeay

  53. Honestly pick a different name. You're trying to find something cutesy and lovable but it's really not, I mean lakyee? It sounds like a gross yougurt or somthing. The kid has a possibility of being bullied with that trashy name. You can be creative and make its nice at the same time, mashing a fucking sign and a few ee's onto your names isn't creative. Also taking an a name that's already common and changing some letters isn't shit, it's just bad. Thank fuck your husband didn't like mckarty because that's horrible. Sorry for the hate, congrats on your fetus but it's just bad you have to come up with bad names to get some self satisfaction from being 'unique'.
