Adoption vs. Names

I have a son Alexander (Andy) Ryan, 7. I was told I would not be able to have any more children after Andy, due to complications I had with him. When Andy was 3 we decided to adopt a baby girl from an abusive home. We named her Amelia(Emmi) Renee, 4. We are now in the process of adopting my DH’s twin niece and nephew. They are 3 months old. His sister could no longer care for them in a healthy way to say the least. We would like to change their names to match our children’s names. Currently their names are Ozias Maddox and Markie Oaklie. We have no interest in keeping their initials the way they are. Can you suggest boy and girl names that start with A and Middle initial R?

I do like Ace and Austyn (I would probably spell it Austen). But I am not fond of Ryver or Reina. Thank you though

I cant use Alex, because Andy’s full name is Alexander. But I do like Robert for a middle name. As well as Rebecca. Not too keen on April. Thank you - Poll Poster

Thank you for your opinion poster 11! We have made the decision not to keep their names. It is better for everyone involved. - Poll Poster

They have a past. You can’t just erase that.

I like Anneliese Rose and Ava Rylie Thank you. And Poster 13: I am not going to explain the whole story to you. You don’t deserve it. We have made the decision. If you don’t like it please move off my poll and go on to hating someone else’s decision. Thank you - Poll Poster

I get that you made a decision. I am just trying to give you some perspective as someone who was adopted. Taking away their connection from their past, even if that past wasn’t good, is not fair to them.

Im not trying to change their past. They will know they were adopted. There will be no secrets. Amelia’s name was changed. Although she is only 4, she knows she was adopted. She doesn’t completely understand what it means, but she tells people that she was adopted. I am in no way trying to change their past. They are family. If anything they will learn about their past quicker because they are family. I just want them to feel accepted into my family. You can get off my poll now - Poll Poster

Seriously there is no need to get all defensive. You posted on a public forum. I have every right to post here. I am trying to help you and give you some perspective you might not have. Get over yourself.

Trust me. I have thought this completely through. The point is, I am changing their names. I see your perspective as I was adopted myself. My name was not changed. It was easier to find my birth mom that way. But no matter what I am going to be honest with them and if they want to know their birth name, I will tell them. But I want them to feel accepted into my family until then. With the names they have now, they will thank me.
