We've had the name picked out almost the entire pregnancy, I spent four hours making this video back in July to use as the announcement, and I've written about it here, here, here, and even here.


We'll wait until she's born for her full name to at least leave something a secret for her arrival... but we're so excited to finally share the name with you all!
xoxoxo, 
J&D


p.s. so... did any of you guys think this was the name??

  1. ONE of my FAVORITE names EVER. That was a name I had on my list when we were deciding for logan but the N at the end didnt go well the N in our last name. it sounded funny together. GOOD CHOICE!

  8. aaaahhhhhh LOVE it! i wish i could make that LOVE bigger!! when we met up with melissa and stella and rowan from hi, baby a few weeks ago i totally fell in love with that name too! ok. so my guess was gemma. also, i think it would be so cute to have "doll" in her name somewhere too. that video is toooooooo adorable! love the idea and cant wait to hear her full name! :)

  10. Well, I love that. I love it a lot, with the long o sound and that it's unisex! My middle name is Kyle, and I always wished my mother just gave me that name, because it's unisex, sounds cooler, and it's not ridiculously popular (I was one of seven Kaitlin/Caitlin/Katelyns in my grade. There were sixty people in my entire grade. Yeah.)

    Okay...my guess was...well, I hope you don't find this name too horrible, but my guess was Ruby, because I think it's kind of a badass name, but it's also getting more popular now a days. So when I saw the R come out I was like "OMG I CAN TELL THE FUTURE!!!"

    But then it turned out I couldn't :)

  14. your video was awesome- how creative :) what a cute name...i've got a whole list of name ideas, and a ton of them are unisex names...i LOVE those the best!! Rowan is so cute, and in my eyes, unique. I can't remember ever hearing of that name before...SWEEEET! Rowan is going to be one lucky little birdie :)

  18. oh, and just to let you know, it's impossible to have a completely UN-USED name. i mean, i keep hearing about all these other wyatt's and it makes me cringe. oh well. nothing i can do about it i guess.

    so mind as well pick out a name that you love (no matter if it's popular or not) and just name the shit out of your kid. :)))))))

  19. Love the name! Love the video! Can't wait to hear the full name soon!

  20. hahaha well i know that Jess! i've talked about that before, like here :

    http://keytomytart.blogspot.com/2010/06/ok-universe-you-can-stop-now.html

    it's just frickin irritating when it seems to get MORE popular around the time that you're having a baby and want to use it... but yea.. that's why we said we would never change it even if it did get super popular.. we love it so much!

  26. That is an awesome name!!! I love it! How would you feel about making videos for others?!?!? Haha =] I made a really awesome one for my husband on Father's Day.

  31. aww, rowan-- a sweet name indeed! and here i was thinking for sure that you were gonna name her 'byrdie' after all your bird talk! :o) like the fantastically fun canadian couple over at http://www.thebestlifeever.blogspot.com. but rowan is super-- good, strong name!
