A Name

Well, folks... I'm sure you've been waiting in eager anticipation to see what name we would choose for our little girl.

The feed-back we got from the poll on our blog was interesting. (We do, however, suspect that someone went in and voted at least 22 times for Elisheva since that name went for about a week with 2 votes and then over night it gained just enough to take the lead.) :)

We've gone back and forth mainly between Micaiah Elizabeth and Naomi Elizabeth. And while most of the Stockstill side voiced a preference for Micaiah, JR kept mispronouncing it. (that doesn't seem good, now does it?)

So... after a week of working hard-core, we have decided to name our daughter:

Naomi Elizabeth Sheets

(yea!, we can stop calling her "New'by")

Thanks for sharing your opinions and knowing we'd pick whatever we liked best anyway.

-Daisha, Jr, Gideon, and Naomi :)

Wow, I need to start putting money on these polls of yours. First I voted that it'd be a girl and then I voted for the name Naomi Elizabeth. I'm on a roll! :)

Congrats on no longer having a no-name daughter!

Kelli said...

22 Votes? Who would do such a thing?? :)

Regardless, I love the name you picked. It's quite lovely.

I've been out of the loop, so missed an opportunity to vote, but am really glad you settled on a name she will be able to spell and pronounce! It is a beautiful name and I'm sure she will be a beautiful little girl. Love you guys.
