When it came to us picking names, we really wanted a unique, from another language, or an uncommon old fashioned name. We went back and forth for months and just out of no where we decided instead to combine names to create one. We combined our last names and created our sons name Castian, not pronouncing the 2nd part like Christian but instead pronounced (Cas-tee-en). As many people like to name after family or someone special- For his middle name I chose one that included Marks name in it to honor him. In Spanish Mark translates to Marco and in some places or cultures people add "de" before the middle name or you may notice is part of some last names (ex: Cindy de Leon). Although it isn't a tradition in our culture to add "de" before a middle name I came up with a different name all in all instead being one name altogether "Demarco". So our sons first and middle names are Castian Demarco. Needless, to say when we first shared with my father his first name he asked "Why" lol, and others just didn't like it or felt it would be too hard to pronounce. But we didn't let that change what we wanted. These days MANY things are difficult to pronounce lol. You must go with what feels right :-) And itmade an easy nick name (Caz) ;-)

Before I even knew what I was having I already new their names. I don't know how or why, I just know I woke up and boom, I had the baby name in my head. Later I find out that I picked the perfect name cuz every name was what the sex of the baby was before I even knew.

With Dante his father and I went back and forth on quite a few names. His father had some out there names(satan, lucifer, names like those) so when he finally chose Dante I was ready to agree. It helped that I also liked the movie Dante's peak. I also kept his name from my mother until he was born because I knew she wouldn't like it. And I was right. As soon as she heard it she said she would only call him by his middle name(which she ended up not doing).

Surprisingly Keiko's name was thought of until after she was born. Thomas picked it out to match her middle name only a couple hours before they had to file all the paperwork in the hospital. He was going through the baby name book and found a japanese name(her heritage) that he liked and her mother agreed.
