Dandelion Gray.

I cannot wait to have kids. Okay, I can wait a little while. But I am really excited, and so is Jordan.

Awhile ago we came up with a name for our future son, Royce Maitland Gray. Royce was Jordan's great grandfather, and Maitland is my brother's middle name. Maitland was also my great (great?) grandfather as well? I need to look into that. But regardless, I am in love with that name.

And then the other day I came up with my girl name. I was a little worried that Jordan would just laugh at me, but he actually seems to be considering it. Maybe because he knows how much I love it, and he's probably afraid I'll cry if he says he doesn't like it. Which, to be honest, I probably will.

I want to name my daughter Dandelion Lenore Gray. Dandelions have always been my favorite, and Lenore is my sister's middle name. I absolutely adore this name. So please don't laugh too hard, or just don't tell me when you do.
