Thanks! I'm Canadian so that means we might have US/British/French pronunciation for any name and there's no way to know!

Eye-SIGH-uh is an interesting one!

In other news, I always assumed Elisha in the bible was like Alicia (ell-ISH-a) but apparently in American English it's Ell-EYE-sha, according to some random pastor on YouTube. He also says Elijah with the soft j (zh) of Asia, not the hard J like juggler that I've been using. I think my way sounds better!

To me, Alicia is pronounced Uh-lee-sha and Elijah is definitely pronounced with the zh to make it Uh-lye-zha! One of the many reasons I love FJ, all the different ways that seemingly common words are pronounced! I’m a huge word and name nerd, but I grew up in the South which is its whole own accent. I have heard Elijah with the hard j sound but I’ve definitely more commonly heard it with the zh sound.

For me it's a Z vs S sound.  Maisie = maze-e Macy = mace-e

Drum roll please: @Nashville92 @sadiZ & @Jatalie1996 all guessed Evangeline for the Vuolos. Curiously no  one guessed Jo for a middle name.  @jillsdopplerofdoom guessed the correct birth date

Seriously?! Isn't this the name of a couple of the chipmunks? She really named her kids after the Chipmunks?

Jinger was really close to Grandma Mary, but Mary has already been used by the family. My bet is that they’ll use Grandma Mary’s middle name - Leona. Not sure on the middle though. My bet is something short like Ann (Jeremy’s grandmother’s name), Faith, Hope, etc. 

 

Final bets:

Leona Ann or Leona Hope

I agree, so interesting! Now I'm second guessing how Alicia is commonly ptonounced in English Canada. (Maybe it does have the Lee in the middle?) Thr only Alicia I know uses the Spanish pronunciation and always has to correct people.

My original guess for Joy and Austin was Abigail Faith, but as I think about it, Abigail Faith Forsyth sounds kinda clunky so I'll update.

I'm still set on Abigail because it means "father's joy," is Biblical, and is a subtle callback to Annabell. Middle names...not Joy because that's repetitive. Wow, not a lot of names go with both Abigail and Forsyth.

Abigail Hannah Forsyth, all of my other predictions remaining the same

Not that josh's mom

For me Abigail is too close to John David's Abbie. Of course, I think, Jana, Joy- Anna and Johanna are too close too.

My guess for the Forsyths - Sarah Joy or Sadie Joy - 8/14 - 9lb 10oz

Vuolos- Elena Marianne or Elizabeth Marianne - 11/14 - 8lb8oz

Nickname for Jingers baby - Laney or Betsy

So, anyone want to guess what Braggie Abbie will name her twin boys? She already has an Ezra, Simon, Theodore, Honor, and Shiloh for boys, and an Adelaide, Magnolia, and Evangeline for girls.

I'm going to guess Tobias and Judah. Trying for hipster biblical here.

For Braggie's twins I propose Isaac and Aaron, it's hard because she doesn't have an obvious naming pattern, I choose those names only because of Bible, and I liked they both have double A but are not too close to each other.

Oh man, she could have called her three girls in a row Brittany, Jeannette, and Eleanor after the Chipettes. Baggie and I are about the same age and I loved them all as a kid.

Who is braggie abbie? 

Braggie is Abbie Halberstadt. Her and her husband Shaun live in a huge firetrap house they build themselves in Texas with their 8, soon to be 10 children. Her most notable characteristic is how open she is about not wanting children. For example her most recent pregnancy announcement was a long post about how upset she was that she was having twins again, especially so since they were boys.  

Gotta love that Christian martyrdom. 

Her threads start here

I'm going with Zeal and Zion. IRC she mentioned she liked Zion but Shaun vetoed it, but apparently he'd also vetoed Shiloh before. And Zeal she mentioned loving back when she was pregnant with Shiloh.

I like Abbie's older kids' names (not a fan of Honor and Shiloh). I'm going with Gabriel and Micah.

 

For the Fosyths: Caroline Faith

For the Vuolos: Charis Phoebe

I think Joy’s baby will be named Hope Anna and Jinger’s either Faith Michelle/Diana, Verity Michelle/Diana or Charity Michelle/Diana.

I don’t think she’ll do the double Z. Too matcha for cutting edge Abbie.

hmm good point. Ok so I remember she an IG post asking for name suggestions and in the comments she mentioned she  like Zeal. She also mentioned she liked Zion but Shaun vetoed it, Jude but one of the older boys has the Judah as a middle name and the kids thought it would be too similar, and Darcy but that might have been a joke. 

I still think Zion is likely if for no other reason than Shaun trying to placate an Abbie who's irritated at having 2 more boys.  Maybe Zion and Jude cause it would be like her to ignore her kids. Or Zion and Levi if she doesn't.

Braggie might do a Z name for one, and I could see the other one being something like Toben/Tobin/Tobias. She did reuse S and E, but I really can’t see her giving the Twinbies the same first name initial.

Aww, nuts, I didn't look at her kids' middle names. OK, I'll change my guess from Tobias and Judah to Tobias and Malachai. I'm not sure it's her style but I'm out of ideas!

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
