Christmas Count Down Name Reveal

December 13, 2015

Since we decided on BabyGirl’s name, its been kind of hard not writing it in blog posts as we refer to her by it all the time.

I didn’t want to just share it with everyone, especially as there are so many pregnant people that read my blog lately, I didn’t want anyone to steal it from us. It’s kinda unique, as in, I’ve never met a person with this name and when I googled to find its ranking, a few baby name websites didn’t even have it listed.
But I still felt like I needed to reveal it as I’m useless at keeping secrets and at some point I was bound to slip up and mention it in some sort of social media post somewhere along the line.

Back on October 13th, my twitter account had 706 followers so I used that as a target for the reveal in that if I could grow my twitter following before Christmas, I would reveal it on Christmas day. One or two of you seemed quite excited and admittedly nosey (your words) at this so really encouraged some new people to follow me. I didn’t expect it to grow so quickly as its taken since 2009 to get the amount I had, but in exactly one month I hit my target and so had to think of a way to reveal it.

And the name is…

She has a first and a middle name with a total of 12 letters between them.

My plan is to share one letter a day in the 12 days run up to Christmas and then announce the full name on Christmas day.

The letters wont always be glaringly obvious so may need you to figure them out (you’ll see)

I will share the letters in anagram form across the 2 names so they wont directly spell it out. If you want to know, you’ll have to work for it!

If you happen to figure it out, please don’t spoil it for others but feel free to message me if you want to check you have it right.

To my family and friends that already know… NO SPOILERS!

Thanks, Enjoy the game and have as many guesses as you like!

I’ll give you a clue. There are 7 letters in her first name and 5 in her middle name. Her first name begins with P and out of the letters I’ve given you so far, there is only 1 missing from her first name
. Can you work it out?
P_ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _

Today is Christmas Day and I can now reveal our BabyGirl’s. No longer will she be referred to as Baby Girl.
Her name is  Paisley Niamh.
Many thanks to all of you that took an interest and played along across all the social medias and her on the blog. We hope you all have a very merry Christmas. xxxx Screen Shot 2015-12-24 at 23.51.38

    Nope! I’ll have to check back tomorrow. I’m going for Maisy for the middle name but can’t find a name with the remaining letters 😀 Phaline?

      Nope 🙂
      The first name is easier to wok out than the second name as the second name is an Irish spelling… If that helps.

          Thanks, She’s named after a country singer, Brad Paisley. As was Dexter with his middle name of Blake after Blake Shelton
