Need vs. Names

Hi. A couple of weeks ago my sister in law was in a very bad car accident. She was pregnant with twin boys. They did everything they could to save her and the babies but she wasn’t that lucky. She had to have an emergency c-section. They were born very premature. Their father also died in the crash. Me and my husband took the boys in. They are still in the hospital and they don’t have names. Please help us out. Thank you. Holly.

you could give one of them the middle name of his father and the other a modified version of his mother’s name.

Wow, omg im so sorry! Well, what were your sister and her husbands names? Maybe that will give us some ideas.

We are going to get custody of them. My sister in law and her husband’s names were Natalie Caroline and Christopher James.

She said that she liked strong and sturdy names for boys. I think she would have liked Griffin a lot.

Think of a meaning that would be suitable, like... "resilient," or "faithful," or, whatever...

Then find a name(s) that matches the meaning(s) of your choice and seems to fit in suitably with the style of their siblings. The mns should clearly honor mom and dad.

Take care and God Bless

Nathan Christopher & Connor James or James Connor

I know a guy named Griffin and it’s a very masculine name that is well-liked - I would use it.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:28:02 | report
I would like the middle names to either be Nathan or Nathaniel for Natalie and Christopher or James for Chris.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:28:24 | report
Or make both fns tribute names, but do less obvious versions, as they will grow up knowing you and your husband as their parents.

For example, Nate and Topher

Do you think Griffin Nathaniel works?

Wow! You truly are one of the most heroic people whom I have ever heard of! Do you like any names so far?

What about:
Wdyt? Than you could honor them using those names.
posted by guest: ella :: 2009-05-15 20:30:32 | report
I think she would like Griffin and Nathan.

Griffin Nathaniel is great!

What about Carson (off Caroline), Jameson (off James), or Christopher/Christian?

Griffin Nathaniel and Carson Benjamin is cute! I really like it...WDYT?

Griffin Nathaniel and Jameson Christian...

What will the last name be?
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 20:32:20 | report
Griffin James& Nathan Christopher

I personally don’t like Nathan, and if you use Griffin Nathaniel that’d be weird...but, its up to you!
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 20:34:16 | report
Our last name is Thomas.But that is their last name to. Their dad is my husbands brother. I think we are going to go with Griffin Nathaniel for one of the boys. What do you think about Christian James?
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:35:39 | report
Griffin James and Nathan Christopher are wonderful! I think you should go with that.

I’m very sorry for your loss and good luck with the boys. You’re a strong woman.

I personally think Griffin and Christian are too similar in sound...

I like Carter. Thank you for all the help that you guys have been giving me.

Griffin Nathaniel and Carter James would be great!
I am so sorry for your loss, but you and your husband are very honourable people!
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:40:11 | report
Griffin Nathaniel Thomas and Carter Jameson Thomas is really cute, and same syllables...or I’d use Carson James.
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 20:42:48 | report
Thank you I really like Carter James. Are there any more CAR names that we could maybe consider other than Carter or Carson.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:42:57 | report
Griffin Nathaniel is great. I would give boy two a different fn that isn’t related to his parents - he shouldn’t have to spend his life only as the living memorial of his parents’ tragedy - but I would certainly use Christopher or Christian as the mn. GL and God Bless!
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:42:58 | report
I also like Carter Jameson!
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:44:01 | report
I really don’t think so, besides Carl and Carrigan...Carter and Carson are your best bets, and they sound cute with Griffin!
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 20:44:53 | report
That’s a good idea. I think the first name for the second boy should be a strong name but not related to Natalie or Chris. Any more strong boy names that you can suggest?
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:46:15 | report
The most strong masculine names that I love are Matthew James & Nicholas Carter. Matt & Nick.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:47:32 | report
We are certain that baby boy number one is going to be Griffin Nathaniel. We want the second boy’s middle name to either be Christian or James.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:48:44 | report
These are all good strong names. Like any?
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:50:42 | report
Griffin Nathaniel & Matthew James - I like this set because both first names have double letters in them (ff and tt). I like Matthew James better, but Matthew Christian is great too.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 20:55:11 | report
I like Jacob but I don’t think Natalie and Chris would have liked it.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:55:53 | report
I do like Matthew James. But I just don’t know if it would be a name that Nat and Chris would want for their son.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 20:57:10 | report
What about Caleb, Parker, Zachary, Quentin, or Derek?
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:02:24 | report
I think Aiden and Robert are some great names. I liked the Nathan idea for Natalie and Christian is nice too. Nathan and Christian are cute. Good luck and I’m sorry for you loss!

posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:04:37 | report
I think they would really like a name that was kind of funky like Griffin but still a good and strong name. I think they would like Parker though.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:04:47 | report
Griffin’s adorable! I also like Parker. Some other names are Sawyer, Spencer, I’ll think of more.

posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:06:42 | report
We really like Sawyer!!
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:07:42 | report
Oh good I’m glad! It’s a very cute name! Sawyer and Griffin are great together!

posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:08:35 | report
Love them! Go for it. GL and god bless.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:11:01 | report
I agree - I’m the one who suggested Parker and I like Sawyer better!
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:12:17 | report
I think Sawyer Christian and Griffin Nathaniel would be absolutley amazing! Good luck! And I’m glad you liked Sawyer!

posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:13:47 | report
Which one do you guys like better: Sawyer James or Sawyer Christian?
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:15:30 | report
I don’t know...

I still think that Griffin Nathaniel and Carter Jameson are the strongest names...but that is me...

Plus, they fit really nicely with your brother’s other children’s names! I think Sawyer is a bit too unisex and not as classic...though it is cute.
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 21:16:43 | report
I really like Sawyer Nathaniel! Good luck
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:18:18 | report
That’s my problem. I am torn between Sawyer James or Christian and Carter Jameson. I don’t know which one to pick.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:18:41 | report
I meant to type Sawyer Christian, sorry!
posted by guest: previous poster :: 2009-05-15 21:18:45 | report
Definatly Sawyer! Sawyer and Griffin are perfect together!!
posted by guest: Alice :: 2009-05-15 21:19:20 | report
I can’t decide between Carter Jameson and Sawyer Christian.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:21:25 | report
I’m not a fan of Christian, and I really think Carter is a better fit with SIL’s other kids’ names...

Carter and Griffin Thomas is too cute! And handsome!

Griffin and Sawyer is just...idk...cute, but it doesn’t have the "it" factor for me! Sorry!

Just expressing my opinion...what do the other kids/your husband think?
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 21:24:35 | report
I hate to disagree but I think Sawyer is darling =]
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:26:56 | report
Husband, Charley, Haylei and Brady all like Carter. And Mackenzie and Taylor like Sawyer. So its 4 to 2.

Why don’t you let the twins’ siblings have the final say - maybe it’ll give them some sense of control in such a horrible situation.
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:33:43 | report
I saw earlier a lot of talk about names like Carter and Carson...sorry, but that makes me think about the fact that Mom & Dad died in a CAR crash...
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:35:57 | report
The problem is that Charley wants Carter and Mackenzie wants Sawyer. I just don’t know what to do.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:36:55 | report
I never even thought about that. I just wanted the CAR for Natalie’s middle name Caroline. I can’t use Carter.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:38:53 | report
So what are the final names?
posted by guest :: 2009-05-15 21:42:45 | report
The final names are going to be Griffin Nathaniel and Sawyer Christian. Thank you all for the comments and suggestions. I think Natalie and Chris would be really happy with these names. Thanks Holly.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 21:44:40 | report
Wow, I never thought of Carter and Carson with the car crash and I still don’t think its a big deal, but if you think others will, then go with that...

Again, very sorry for your loss! I wish you the best of luck with these twin boys! I’m sure they will make a great addition to your family. Are they identical? I’m an identical twin...
posted by guest: LaurenE :: 2009-05-15 21:59:54 | report
Thank you LaurenE. Me and my husband talked about the Carter situation and he thought it would be best to go with Sawyer. And they are identical. They have really dark hair but not a lot. When they were born baby #1- Griffin- was 3pounds 6oz. and baby #2- Sawyer was 3pounds exactly.
posted by guest: poll maker :: 2009-05-15 22:13:25 | report
Oh, not TOO bad for twins, even for preme twins, then! They sound beautiful! My sister and I were 5.12 and 6.7 respectively, but we were full-term...

Good luck to you all with the new additions, all of them...

What a precious gift you have received in these babies and their older siblings. The fact that those tiny little babies survived such a horrible tragedy is beautiful. I am so sorry for you and your husband’s loss of his brother and sister-in-law. Congratulations on your new "blended" family . . .
