Mommy Moments: Name Game


mommy moments

It is another day for Mommy Moments. This week's theme is all about the names of our little ones.... the story behind those names... check out The Mommy Journey for this week's entries.

Andrea Lorene Janiz

I always wanted to have a pretty name for my child for the obvious reason that I don't like my name.

When I got pregnant and knew that we will have a baby girl... we wanted to name our child in honor of our parents.

Andrea came from her maternal grandmother whose name is Andresa. I omitted the S to make it sound more like non-traditional name.
Lorene came from her paternal grandmother. I like this name as it sounds American...
Janiz is from her paternal stepmother. I just made a different spelling for uniqueness of it.

Anyway, I always insisted that Andrea Lorene is my baby's first names but whenever we go to hospitals or any other places that needs her info... as a typical american style they only use the first, first name. But if I am asked to filled out forms, I always use all her names. I am glad that her records like Birth Certificate, Passport and SSN is in her 3 names. The Janiz by the way is her middle name... Americans doesn't use mother's maiden name as the child's middle name although it is also my choice to do it that way. If I wanted it, I could have used my maiden name as Andrea's middle name but I didn't!

Kaganda naman ng name ni Andea, american name talaga; we thought of using Matt's grandfather's name for Jake's middle name, but we opt not to.

The first name of your daughter is the same as my daughter's first name. I realized it was also the name of my grandma's mother. Isn't Andrea a beautiful name? :) Thanks for dropping by. Happy weekend!

your pretty little girl has got lovely names to boot mommy! mahaba rin name ni sam ko! pero sabi nila, dapat daw maiksi lang name ng mga bata para di mahirapan sa school. kasi raw pag may quiz, naka number 3 na ang iba, tapos mga anak natin, nagsusulat pa ng name. tama ba naman yon? e kung mabilis pala cla magsulat? at smart pa? di ba?
