A name revealed

Tomorrow I will 30 weeks pregnant! I am not sure what sort of produce Baby Girl #2 will be, but I do know that we have a name for her now. It is the name that we were tossing around for quite some time and even had mentioned to each other before we were ever pregnant. Baby Girl #2 will be named.......
Hollings Domenica Grant.
This name is all family. Worth's mother's maiden name is Hollingsworth. That is where Worth comes from, so we are sort of naming her for Worth, and of course T-love. Well you should know where Domenica comes from, but if you don't my real name is Domenica, it means Sunday in Italian. I just adore that name and would hate for it to go away, so it is not. I don't have a middle name, well at least I did not before I got married, now my middle name is my maiden name. I love that idea of the maiden name becoming the middle name after marriage. I guess Hollings will just have to decide what she wants to do at that time.
So if you love the name you can tell me, if you don't then please don't tell me or say anything about it. Of course then I will get nervous about your silence, but no matter what this is her name!
I took this one picture of BellaRose at her Christmas program and it just reminded me SO much of Hollings' ultrasound picture, don't you think?!

You know I love the name, I already told you, so I'm commenting on the profile. BR and Hollings have the same nose/mouth! The area from the nose to the top lip both have the same curve. Isn't it amazing to see God working. He's making another sweet Grant girl... I can't wait to meet her.

Kristin said...

This is a beautiful name and one she will cherish because it has so much meaning.

I am very glad you are having another daughter Sunday. I LOVE having daughters...they feed your soul.

Becky Swann said...

Oh they do look alike! A beautiful name for a beautiful girl! As a second daughter I know Hollings will totally appreciate that you put as much love and thought into naming her as you did BellaRose.
I can see her telling her kindergarten class, how she is named after her mommy and her daddy! It's perfect!

Niki said...

You know I love it! I am so excited that she will be named after her Mama too! You are right, that name needs to carry on. That is crazy how much they already look alike. Can't wait for her!

MC and Brian Phillips said...

oh, Sunday! It's a PERFECT name! I love that it has so much meaning and it's so different. Beautiful! Yea, you will need to help us on our second one. Names are harder than I thought, and you're good at it, but Hollings and Harper will be sweet together, with their H names and close birthdays!
