the name game

so, after toiling and grueling over many thousands and hundreds of thousands of names, M and i have finally agreed and narrowed our list down to three.

[your help needed here].

my question to you is: which is your favorite? do you like these names? i think they're really cute..so if you really hate them, well, keep it to yourself. (just teasin). the names are (drum roll please):

1. Elizabeth Marcia Chapman
(we'd call her Ellie)
2. Annie Lynne Chapman
3. Kate _____ Chapman
(middle name still undecided)


can't wait to hear your input!

I initially voted Kate but after our discussion yesterday I'm all for #1. I really like Ellie and love the idea about Marcia being the middle name. There's my vote!

Ju & Brack said...

P.S. it was so good to see you yesterday! You are going to have a beautiful baby girl!

Marci & Daniel said...

elizabeth. love it.

ClaysJenna said...

I love Elizabeth as well! And, I love Ellie! So darling! (And, I love Marcia as the middle name!) It was so good to see you at the shower! You look beautiful and I cant wait to see your beautiful baby!!

Hansen's Munchkins said...

I love Elizabeth, very classic, and I can picture your baby as an Elizabeth, but I also love the name Kate!

Britney said...

I like Annie because it's so cute and everyone has heard of it, but not that many people have it. There are too many people named Kate and Elizabeth in my opinion.

RaCh said...

I love them all! My suggestion is to WAIT until you've seen her to decide her name. She might look like one more than the other. I'm so excited for you guys!!

Jeff and Whitney said...

I have to say I like Annie. Its such a darling name and not used very much. Good to see you Saturday!

Kristi said...

I would vote Kate - I just think of your baby and I think Kate would fit your baby very well.

Cassidy and AE Harris said...

I absolutly love the name Ellie! Me and AE have thought of using this one because the name runs in the family but that is definitly my pick! But if you name her that and I name a girl that I hope you won't be mad... ha ha. When is your baby shower? I want to see your cute belly!

jenna marie said...

LOVE kate. so simple and sweet.

Amy said...

first of all- you can't go wrong with any of them. So cute! I love Ellie, it's always been one of my favorites.I love using "family names" so Marcia and Lynne are both great choices there. Annie is adorable, and so is Kate. For some reason I see a little girl bouncing around with your curls and blue eyes and it seems like her name should end in "ee" like Ellie or Annie. I think once you see her one of the names will probably just pick itself! :) but if I had to choose I would probably go for Elizabeth Marcia (ellie)- it's powerful and beautiful name. love it, and love you!

Lea Billings said...

Ummmmm, we've talked about this and I think they are all great but I guess I would go with... Elizabeth (I really think you love this one the most, from our conversations)!

Debra said...

I love all of the names. Elizabeth has always been one of my favorites but Annie and Kate are perfect names too.

I was really hoping that you would name her after me . . . but since Debra is not on your list...maybe you could use it as a middle name?! just think of it Miguelita Buelita Debra Chapman it has a certain ring to it, don't you think?

Lali Johnson said...

love the first one but the second one has a nice ring to it as well. good luck!

Tiffany Johnson said...

LOVE them all! Kate is my favorite, only because Nate and I have finally agreed on one name so far and it's Katelyn!
So cute! Our girls would be kindred spirits! Isn't it the worst picking out names???? I mean really, they will be stuck with it the rest of their lives, but GEEZ.. why does it have to be so flippin hard????? I really do like Ellie too though! I love that. Such a cute name. I can totally picture both. But they are all so cute! Good luck with the decision! It was fun to hang out with you guys last night. Poor Mike. I feel bad that I was so blunt about everything! :-) You totally should come to the garage sale. I've got tons of baby girl stuff! A lot of new clothes that have never been worn even. Other than that, we would just love to see you guys if you want to stop by! :-)

erin said...

Annie, and Kate are my vote. Annie more than Kate.

Van D Family said...

Hey Marce!
Its good to have a few names picked out before you have her. I thought for sure I would name E something different, but she just looked like an E and her personality was as sweet as an E. I'm so excited for you! You will love it!!

Erika said...

I really like #2, good luck choosing!

Carrie said...

Ellie is so cute!!! Not too common either! LOVE IT!

Aaron & Ashley said...

I'm voting for Ellie because Elizabeth is my middle name and therefore I think it is fantastic! The other two choices are totally darling as well though...I'm all about waiting to finalize it until you see the little gal. PS: sorry I couldn't be at your shower! I would have loved to see you and hope you are doing so great!

Savannah said...

I love Ellie/Elizabeth...but I agree, when you see her you will know!

melissa said...

i like Ellie. The others are cute, but the first one stands out to me. good luck!

Jennefer said...

after much deliberation... my favorite is annie. like someone said... it's a name that is easy to pronounce, and everyone knows it, but not too many people have it. i can't wait to see her! (but keep her in there, not too long to go!)

Joe, Amber and Ken said...

I think all the names are adorable, and I'm sure you'll pick the perfect one.

Josh and Hilary said...

My vote is for Elizabeth. I really like it! It was great to see you this past weekend!! You looked as darling as ever!

Megs said...

I love Ellie - that would be so cute.

Mark said...

I guess I failed the comment test the other day. It never got posted.

I vote for Ellie! I think it is a great name and Elizabeth is a great formal name to go along with the cute nickname. Good luck!

ed and kelli said...

okay my vote would be for annie.. but i kinda like annie marcia... the only reason i would not do elizabeth is ( i am opinionated on this name cause it's my middle name.. and i know way to many elizabeths that i didn't like.. so it has a bad taste in my mouth...) BUT if you just named her ellie to begin with i like that.. but for sure no matter what name you give her.. i like marcia for her middle name.. very cute!

Leah said...

I vote Elizabeth Marcia Leah Chapman.

Marce said...

thank you for all of your input! i can't wait till june 4, our baby girl's big REVEAL day...

then we'll let you know which one we chose! xoxo

David & Emily said...

I love Elizabeth Marcia Chapman but I think you should do Elizabeth with an "s" like Elisabeth Marcia Chapman.

Maybe I'm partial cause Elisabeth is my middle name and my mom's name :D
