My Favorite Family Names for Baby

Hispanics tend to use the same names for many family members. Names get passed from father to son or mother to daughter all the time. I think there’s something special about this tradition. I love that we honor older family members by bestowing their names on our children. I wanted to share some of my favorite names from my own family that have been passed down through the years.

Baby Names Inspired by Disney Siblings

If you’ve always dreamed of having a big family, then chances are you’ve given thought to several baby names as opposed to just one. It isn’t uncommon for siblings to have names with the same first initial, ones that rhyme, or even names that fall into the same category, such as virtue baby names.

To help with that, there are quite a few Disney movies and television shows where siblings make an appearance, offering even more name inspiration. As a tribute to the brothers and sisters of Disney, here are some baby names inspired by Disney siblings.

12 Baby Names Inspired by Summer

Ahh, summer. One of my favorite times of the year, because of the warm weather and the ever-growing desire to go to the beach. Some of my fondest memories of growing up were in the summertime — backyard barbecues, beach vacations, and staying up late to catch lightning bugs.

Summer also brought on a new meaning when I survived the hot Florida summer months during my last two months of pregnancy with my oldest daughter. Although some of these months can be tough for a pregnant mama, they are so rewarding when you hold that little one in your arms for the first time.

In honor of my favorite time of the year, I wanted to share some of the baby names inspired by summer!

30 Adorable Baby Name Pairs for Twins

I have two friends who are expecting for the very first time, and both of them are pregnant with twins! They have some names picked out, but I thought it would be fun to brainstorm some more possibilities for them. (Ha!) Some people name their twins similarly, giving them names that either have a similar sound (Everly & Oliver,) have the same number of syllables (Mason & Daphne,) or start with the same letter (Lydia & Luke.) As a former teacher, I kind of have a love affair with alliteration, so I put together 30 adorable baby name pairs for twins! What do you think of these?
