Names?

So, we have been trying to decide on our little Princess's name, but it is not easy!  So far we have narrowed it down to six names that we like.  I've put them on a poll to the right.  Vote on the one you like best, although in the end, we will choose the one we like the best, of course.  Feel free to explain why you like the name you chose in the comments, or suggest a new one that we haven't though of yet.  You can say negative comments about the names too, but remember, we might choose the one you don't like, and ... well.. let's just say that it isn't a good idea to provoke a mama bear.

I'm sorry. I have no good advice for you. Our last two children remained nameless for a week following birth. Yes, the hospital has to let you go home without a name...who came up with THAT ridiculous idea?! However, Madeline was also on our list, so I certainly favor that name. Scout is adorable...the kind of name I would probably never consider, but really enjoy from someone else! :)Good Luck!

Ok - I voted for Marie because it's a family name for me. But honestly, I really like them all. I like Madeline and you can call her Maddy or something. Names are soo hard! Good luck with the decision making process!

Well I like Marie! Only because then she will be named after me!

NAMES ARE SOOOO HARD! I was wondering...do you pronounce it Elle or Ella? If it's the first, I'd like to suggest Ella as well. I tried to keep your last name in mind as I voted... but all the names are cute! Good luck deciding!

Tammy! I found your blog via Anne's and am so excited for you guys! I voted for Callie, because it's a really cute name but also has direct relation to where you grew up AND where you and Spencer fell in love. I don't have a blog yet, so shoot me an email sometime at gayledonkin@gmail.com!

Can I just say no to "Belle Brown"....I married into the double "R" and that was bad enough!

I voted for Madeline. Callie was my 2nd choice.

I like Elle, but I think it depends on the middle name for that one. Belle Brown sounded a little too repetitive to me (BUT she will change it eventually so it's not that important) but I still like it. Scout sounds like a dogs name to me. Plus in a church that does so much scouting for BOYS I thought it'd be weird.

Having Marie as my middle name... I can tell you it's SUPER generic (seriously... start a count of how many women have that as their middle name) so I thought Princess Peanut needed something a little more distinguishing. :)

No matter what you name her, she'll be beautiful and smart so it's that whole "a rose by any other name..."

Hey, you guys have some cute names to decide from. I had a tough time deciding on a favorite. Maybe once you see her she will just fit a name, it worked for Maggie.

TAM! I didn't even know you were pregnant! And a girl??? ME TOO! WOW. I didn't start until I was 28, but, I can't imagine starting at 35! Bless you. Maybe your body will hold up a little better since you HAVEN'T done this before.. .Maybe?
