The Name Game

After months of deliberation, we have finally settled on a name for our little baby girl! It was a hard decision because we wanted her name to come from Clark's side of the family and we wanted it to be as meaningful and special as Rose's name. (Rose is named for my maternal and paternal grandmothers.)

Her name will be Marianne Hays Lyon. Mary is my mother in law's first name, Ann is my mom's middle name and Hays is Clark's paternal grandmother's maiden name. So Marianne will be named for 3 special people in our lives. We are so excited about her name and I am especially happy to finally have a name to call our precious little baby girl. Now I've gotta get something monogrammed to make it official!!
