Why did you choose Mary? nbsp;If you are looking for other suggestions, the rationale behind Mary might help :nbsp;
Thanks for all the feedback so far. I am definitely looking for suggestions. We picked Mary because of a variety of reasons. 1. I liked the idea of a name that is definitely a name but isn't too popular and isn't too out there either. 2. My husband and I are Catholic and met at the Univ of Notre Dame named for Mary 3, Mary is my mom's name.
I think part of the reason we are having a hard time with DD2 is because Mary had so much meaning behind it I'm having a hard time finding a name with as much meaning.
Based on your response, I would NOT use Maeve. I am Catholic too... I didn't want to ask you straight out. Here's my thought--- Mary is such an important person in Catholic faith and has such strong ties to the Church that I'd want my subsequent children to have Saint names that are tied to their faith too.
My pet Catholic name which DH wouldn't let me use because he has a good friend w/the male spelling is Frances. My eldest daughter is Mary Jane... I thought Frances would be an adorable sib set.
Other Catholic names we considered (Sib to Mary Jane is Elizabeth whom we have always called Betsy):
Cecilia, Bridget/Brigid, Felicity, Joan, Josephine, Lucy, Margaret, Rose, Lucy, Frances
