  6. Dale- This name is for Dale Thayer. He is number 55, a pitcher, and 32 years old. DFale means valley in English. I’m okay with Dale. It isn’t my favorite though.

Baby Namer Interview/Feature Friday

Hey, guys. I’m back again. This time with the details and small rules for the baby namer interview/feature Friday. I thought I would start off with the details. If you don’t already know, every Friday I will be interviewing a baby namer and putting their interview up on my blog. A baby namer is someone who blogs, makes videos or is on formspring that loves names. 

Here is some information:
  • The people will be picked at random using http://www.random.org/.
  • You will get a number every week. It will change every week because there will be one less person.
  • I will let everyone know their number before I pick, that way there are no problems. I will make a page on my blog were every week I will update the numbers.
  • To make it fair and free of doubt I will send out a formspring question saying I am picking and then I will video tape the number being picked with the time and date.
  • If you are picked, you will be contacted by email, formspring, your blog, or youtube.
  • You will be keep in the drawing every week unless you tell me you do not want to be in it that week.
  • I will add anyone at any point if they were not there the previous weeks. 
  • I would like your blogs, youtubes or tumblrs to be about baby names. 

Here are a few rules:
  • You can only be picked once.
  • I need to know the best way to contact you before your name is put into the drawing.
  • When you are picked, I ask that you keep it a secret until my blog post is out.

When you are picked:
  • The winner will be picked on Sunday and contacted as soon as they are picked.
  • I will contact you in the way that you stated is best for you.
  • I will ask that you contact me as some as you get the confirmation that you were picked but no later than the Wednesday.
  • If you do not contact me by Wednesday, than I will pick someone else.
  • After you contact me back, I will ask which of the following ways is best to conduct the interview and when. The chooses are email (which I prefer), Tinychat, or other.
          

I hope I covered all of the details and everything is understandable. If you have any questions you can leave a comment, ask me a question on formspring (http://www.formspring.me/Renthebabynamer), or send me an email at renanneliesedavidson@gmail.com.  The first person will be next Friday, August 3 and they will be picked on Sunday, July 29. I hope everyone wants to be a part of this. Bye for now :).

MLB Series: Pittsburgh Pirates And A Update and A Contest

Hey Guys! I’m back with another baby name blog. But before we get to that let’s talk about my new blog! I have just spent the last 3 days making, designing and researching all to come up with this new look. I am so in love with it (I better be! It did take me 3 days!). If you are wondering what those two names are up in my header, they are my favorite names for boy and girl. I have also added and taken away a few things. I have added a new about me, that I will be adding to later and now you can follow me by email. I have also made me blog buttons scroll in the bottom of the page, so now I can add all the buttons I want. Another thing that is new is my blog button. If you have a blog and would like to add it to your stash (or you want to start one) I would love that. Some things that are missing are my name typography, and two of my little blinkies. They are not that big but if you would like them just ask. I also have a new idea that I will leave details below for. Now let’s get onto the blog post. I have the next installment of the MLB series. This time it is the Pittsburg Pirates. Let’s get started.

Boys
  1. Rod- This name is for Rod Barajas. He is number 26, a catcher, and 37 years old. Rod is an English name that means famous ruler. Rod is a great nickname for Roderick.
  2. Joel- This name is for Joel Hanrahan. He is number 52, a pitcher, and 31 years old. Joel means God will be willing in Hebrew. I have really been liking this name lately. It makes me think of Joel from Jon and Kate Plus 8 but that may have to do with the fact that I am reading their book right now.
  3. Clint- This name is for Clint Barmes. He is number 12, an infielder, and 33 years old. Clint means town on a hill in English. I really like Clint, although it sounds like an old man.
  4. Neil- This name is for Neil Walkers. He is number 18, an infielder, and 30 years old. Neil is a Scandinavian name that means champion. When I was growing up I know a guy named Neil and really liked it.
  5. Casey- This name is for Casey McGehee. He is number 14, an infielder, and 30 years old. Casey means vigilant in war in Irish. Had I made this blog two months ago I would have never put Casey into the boys section but 2 months ago my really close neighbors named their son Casey and I love it.
  6. Garrett- This name is for Garrett Jones. He is number 46, an outfielder, and 31 years old. Garrett means spear ruler in English. This name has been growing on me lately. I love the nickname Rhett too.

Girls
  1. Presley- This name is for Alex Presley. He is number 7, an outfielder, and 27 years old. Presley means from the priest’s field in English. I really love this name for a girl and think it is so cute.
  2. Sutton- This name is for Drew Sutton. He is number 17, an outfielder, and 29 years old. Sutton means from the South town in English. I LOVE, LOVE this name! It is like a guilty pleasure name for me.
  3. McKenry- This name is for Michael McKenry. He is number 55, a catcher, and 27 years old. I couldn’t find out any information on this name. For me Mckenry is a huge guilty pleasure name. I really like Mc names so I feel like it goes with the other names.

So that is my post. I hope you liked it. Now on to my idea. I have had this idea to interview a baby namer and feature them on my blog. The original plan was to have one once a month but then I realized that I have too many baby namer friends to do it just once a month! So now I will do feature Friday. Every Friday I will randomly pick a baby namer (someone who does videos, blogs, or a baby name lover) and ask them a series of questions and tell people to go to their blog/videos/etc. They will also get a button to leave on their blog/youtube channel/etc. that says they were featured. If you would like to be a part of that leave me a comment below and I will make that happen. I hope you will all join and tell your friends. Also let me know what you thought about this blog post. Now I am going to go watch Big Brother so bye for now :).

MLB Series: Philadelphia Phillies

So I know I promised you a blog post a couple of days ago but I was really busy. On Saturday it was my cousin Ella’s 4th birthday party so I was there all day. Anyway I have the next installment in the MLB series. This time it is the Phillies!!!!! The Phillies are my favorite team. I have been waiting since I started this series to do the Phillies. Picking name for this one was hard because I wanted to use every name. I did pick some great names though so let’s get started.

Boys
  1. Hunter- This name is for Hunter Pence. He is number 3, an outfielder and 29 years old. Hunter means one who hunts in English. Hunter is my all-time favorite player on the Phillies. I know I was going to use this name. I have really been liking Hunter lately. I think of a little blonde haired boy named Hunter.
  2. Placido- This name is for Placido Polanco. He is number 27, an infielder, and 37 years old. Placido means calm, quiet in Spanish. I think Placido is such a cool name. The only problem I hate with this name is I automatically think of Polanco.
  3. Roy- This name is for Roy Halladay. He is number 34, a pitcher, and 35 years old. Roy means red in Scottish. I love, love, love this name! I prefer it as a nickname for Royce, which I love, or another name. Roy Halladay is my second favorite Phillies Player. He was my first but on Hunter is. Actually Roy Halladay’s full name is Harry Leroy "Roy" Halladay III.
  4. Laynce- This name is for Laynce Nix. He is number 19, an outfielder, and 32 years old. Laynce means land in English. I prefer the spelling Lance but Laynce is also nice. I also love Nix but on a girl and it would make a great nickname for Nixon.
  5. Domonic- This name is for Donomic Brown. He is number 9, an outfielder, and 25 years old. Donomic means Belonging to God in Latin. I am almost positive that Domonic is an alternate spelling of Dominic. I do like both names and live the nicknames Dom or Nick for them.
  6. Raul- This name is for Raul Valdes. He is number 46, a pitcher, and 35 years old. Raul means wolf counsel in Spanish. I am really liking Raul. I think it is such a strong name. You could use this name as maybe a middle name to honor a Paul even though they don’t sound the same.

Girls
  1. Mayberry- This name is for John Mayberry, Jr. He is number 15, an outfielder, and 29 years old. Mayberry means month of May in English. I think Mayberry could go with all of the other May names. I could never use it because I think of John Mayberry every time I heard it.
  2. Luna- This name is for Hector Luna. He is number 29, an infielder, and 32 years old. Luna means the moon in Italian. I like the name Luna. There have been some people on formspring who have been liking the name Luna lately. I think it is such a cute name. 


So that is my list of names. I know I rambled a lot, Lol :). I hope you like it and don’t forget to comment. I also have to say there are only 9 teams left to go! I think now is a good time to say that as soon as this series is over I have another series to start. I’m not going to tell you what the series is about but I have been waiting to start this series for almost 2 months. So that is all for now and I will be updating you guys soon. Bye :). 

P.S. I had trouble picking just one picture.

MLB Series: Oakland A's

Hey Guys. I’m back! I have finished all of the tabs so they are now up to date. So I have the next team in the MLB Series. This time it is the Oakland A’s.  Let’s get started.

Boys
  1. Bartolo- This name is for Bartolo Colon. He is number 21, a pitcher, and 39 years old. Bartolo means son of Talmai in Greek. I thought this name was so cute! I really don’t like the nickname Bart though.
  2. Jemile- This name is for Jemile Weeks. He is number 19, and infielder, and 25 years old. Jemile means handsome in Arabic. This is a cool name. You could call him Miles for short.
  3. Pedro- This name is for Pedro Figueroa. He is number 65, a pitcher, and 27 years old. Pedro means rock in Spanish. I like Pedro. It is such a cute name.
  4. Cliff- This name is for Cliff Pennington. He is number 2, an infielder, and 28 years old. Cliff means from the cliff ford in English. I have really been liking Cliff lately.
  5. Seth- This name is for Seth Smith. He is number 5, an outfielder, and 30 years old. Seth means appointed in Hebrew. I like Seth but as a middle name.
  6. Norris- This name is for Derek Norris. He is number 36, a catcher, and 23 years old. Norris means from the north in English. Norris is such a cool name but I don’t think it would be good on a little boy.

Girls
  1. Coco- This name is for Coco Crisp. He is number 4, an outfielder, and 36 years old. Coco means chocolate bean in American. I think Coco is such a cute nickname for a little girl.

So that is my list. I hope you liked it and don’t forget to comment. Also I will be putting up another blog post either today or tomorrow.  Bye for now :).

Explanation


So I just wanted to make a blog post about why I haven’t post anything in over a week. I have a ton of blog post ideas it is just that I am waiting until I finish up putting all of the names in tabs at the top. All of the girl names are done but the boy names are not even close. I still have to record around 35 blog post worth of boy names. I am hoping to get done by the end of the week but there are no guarantees. Once I am done recording the names I will start to put up more blog post. Thanks for being patient while I finish up recording the names.
