"C"

Which we did. All 6 of them. Why? Because we started with the first one. Then the second one without really thinking about it....and so we decided they should ALL have it. It's fun and unique and we get lot's of questions about it.

Our last name also happens to start with a C!

Let me tell you....it was SO easy to label the children's clothing for school. We just passed the clothing down in ages and I never had to change the initials on the shoes or clothes. HA ha. Easy Peasy.

L!

Leon, Les, Lorelei, possibly Liam, "Elle" (technically not an L but should still qualify.. ;) )

Brucie said...

i would choose the letter m or the letter r

Ausgirl said...

My husband and I both have our first name start with a D and sometimes we have opened up each others post because they dont add the different middle initial, so if I named all our kids the same letter I guess I would continue the D, but I would be sure to have a different middle initial for each and differing from my husbands and mine.

Probably with an R

I would want to pick j because my name starts with j, but I don't to be a Duggar copycat:)

xAnnax said...

I'd have to choose different ones for the boys and girls... I like 'A' for girls, but I'm not really sure on boys... Maybe 'P', after my dad... so many choices!!

Anonymous said...

I don't know if I could only stick to one letter! For girls I would choose A and for boys B.

If I had to stick to one letter, I would probably choose "L". I doubt that I would/will stick with one though, I like variety. :) In my family, there are two girls and two boys, who all have the letter "J", but I find it kind of interesting that none of the 19 Duggar kids have any of our names! Jonathan, Janine (Janni), Jarrett, and Jacquelyn. Thanks for the wonderful blog!

Kristen Clarke said...

i would choose j or c :)

All our first names start with K - we didn't really think about it when choosing a name for our first child - it just happened. When searching a name for our second child it was sure that we wouldn't leave him out and so we were just looking for names starting with K.

I wanted to choose A,B,C... but we already have a Jacob, and a Wyatt, so it's too late. Lol, guess we'll have to do this with our animals? ;) Who knows what we'll name the next baby if we're lucky enough to have more!

Lydia said...

Probably either J or A. I love the names Ashley, Azlynn, Athena, and Aaron.

Joanna said...

I find it interesting that the Duggars haven't used my name, Joanna. They have a Joy-Anna and a Johanna, but not Joanne or Joanna. My names first name is Janet, my aunt's Joanne, I have an uncle Joe, Aunt Janette, and a cousin Jody. None of these names have been used by the Duggars.

I mostly definitly would us the letter "J". I want to in fact and have two little girls named Jordan and Josie. Boys, my fabvorite J names are Jeremiah and Johnathan, but I also love the names Michael and David.

Hobbieswithtina said...

S maybe it would probably change

Joanna Linovitz said...

I would choose the letter "Z"

I only have one child and I am too old to have more. But when I was pregnant I decided I would never have children with names that started all with the same letter. Especially with mail, that might be confusing. And not everbody uses the next initial(s). By the way, my son is called Reuben.

Heather said...

I chose L. And like the Duggars I didn't do it on purpose. I didn't want anyone to be left out! I have Luke, Levi, Londyn, and LillyAnne. I have a few more names up my sleeve too...Liberty and Layla for a girl and Lawson and Lex for a boy. :)

Anonymous said...

"A"

My husband and I already have our names picked out for our first children "Aiden" and "Aubree" we aren't necessarily trying to get pregnant but we aren't trying to stop it. All in the lords time is how we choose to look at it.

Kelley said...

Really difficult question - I could probably do lots of different letters. My kids are Jennah, Gavin, Braden, Mariah, and Carter - all different letters. I think if I tried I could have went all J, B, M, or C, but not all G. Don't know what I could have done for the girls with that - maybe Gennevieve? Can't think of another, or any other good boys names. I'm sure they are out there though :)

Anonymous said...

Probably a C or A because there are lots of names that have a different sound at the beginning instead of the same Ju or Mm or Ss

Libby said...

R o L? Maybe E.

Anonymous said...

K - Love K names!

Jessica S. said...

n for girls and i dont know what i would do for boys

Ewa said...

I like A names:

Amaya (means night rain)
Avia (means bird like)
Aven (mountain, a plant)
Ayla (moon like)
Avari (bird like, from the sky)
Aurora (linked to the northern lights)

I like the link to nature they all have. The meanings are a constant reminder of the important, natural, non-materialistic things people often lose sight of.

I would do s!

Mine are named:
~ Addison Jordon
~ Alyssa Janelle
~ Alexander Jerrard
And if it were possible, I would definitely have many more Blessings and continue with the same initials. Praying for grandchildren though...would be fun to see my kids continue the tradition:)

I really like J names! I love the names Josiah, James, Justin, Jackson, Jordan, and Jessa. But I also like C names and R names.

Jennifer said...

I Like A,K,T and J names

Penny said...

A. But then I already did that.

Stacie said...

I didn't want to use all the same letter when naming our children. Both my husband and I agreed that we wanted to use Bible names for each of our children's first names and a family name for their middle name.

We have a Joshua, Ruth, Hannah, Jonathan, Elijah, and Elisabeth.

I guess if we had gone with one letter it would have probably been a "J" or an "E". There are a lot of" J" names in the Bible. :-)

I was wondering if you gals could maybe do a before and after of the duggars.
Like a picture when they first appeared on the show or how they looked in the first few specials and then one of the recent pictures.
Please consider this.

Z why be normal...lol...cool names could be made with the letter z and who can really say there name starts with z...

AlexisAR said...

I really like names beginning with X or O. I'd choose one of those two letters, or perhaps I would alternate between X and O.

I have 8 kids and the oldest 2 start with an A, next 2 are M,s, than 2 S's, and 2 J's...we are expecting are 9th baby in Feb. And I'm thinking about going with L!

My line up goes like this: Alexander, Andrew, Makaela, Madison, Samantha, Sophia, Jonathan, Josephine

Ally said...

M or c

Sam said...

I don't know.. I know I couldn't stick any one letter. In my family we have an accidental theme with middle names of me and my sisters. The oldest one's middle name is Zsanene (a soft "sh"- "neen"). My middle name is Jolene. And my twin sister's middle name is Rene.

Natalie said...

I think "A" would be easiest, but I really like the letter "S" for some unknown reason.

Huuumm... I'm not sure what letter I would chose, because I like so many names and they all start with the different letters (Letícia, Inês, Marcos, Cecília, etc). But if I had to, I think I would probably chose letter A or J, because they are the initials of my name and my husband's name (Andrea and Julio).

Abi McGraw said...

Uh,probably R's or J's. Theirs alot more of them!

Anonymous said...

My oldest name starts with a c. I gave my husband a choice of all c names or alphabetical. We went alphabetical. C,d, e, f, g and h. I wanted 26 1 for each letter of the alphabet. But I don't carry well and.we found out boys cost a lot to feed.

Anonymous said...

I am not sure if I would pick a beginning letter. For the boys' names I would pick a Hebrew name that tells about God. For the girls' names I would pick names that end with the letter A.

Love this thread, so many fun names! We intentionally want every kid to have a different first letter (and different then ours). We have a Lorelei and a Daphne. If we picked just one, it would have been L though!

Anonymous said...

I would most likely pick J. There are soooo many names I could think of that I like that begin with J.

Jessa Marie
Johanna Grace
Joylynn Faith
Jill Hope
-----------------------
John David
Joesph
James
Jason

(I hope I do not look like I am copying the Duggars, but it seems like my favorite names begin with J) :/

Jennifer said...

The only name we could agree on was Meredith for our first. When we found out our second was a boy, we chose Miles. For months it was Miles, a name I have loved for years. Then someone said something ugly about the name and "ruined" it for us. :(
So we picked Kyle instead. Now that he is ten, I can't believe we almost named him differently.

If I had to pick a letter ~ I'd chose probably K, L or M.

Kyle
Kylie
Kendall
Kevin
Kyler
Kamden
Korie

Lizzy
Leah
Layla
Lacey
Luke
Liam

Meredith
Madeline
Matthew
Mark
Miriam
Mackenzie
Michael
Miles
Mary

Just tons of names for all of those letters.

Sophie said...

Well, I would choose the letter S, L or J. Not to copy the Duggars, but a few of my favourite names start with a J (like Jordan, Jane, Joy, Jette, Juliet, James, Jackson, Joseph, Jacob, Joachim). And the S, because my name is Sophie. The L, because I love the names Liam, LillyAnne, Louise, Lucy, Levi and Liesbeth (a variation of Elisabeth, my Christian name). But there are so many nice names that I haven't decide IF I would give all my children the same first letter, but I very sure that I would never give my children the same initials, that would be so inept!!

Wow, that's a very long story :)

I think it would be cool to have all the letters of the alphabet, like this: Andrew, Bethany, Charity, Deborah, Ethan, Felix, Gabriel, Heidi, Isaiah, Judah, Katrina, Leslie, Malachi, Naomi, Oliver, Priscilla, Quentin, Rayna, Seth, Titus, Ursula, Victoria, Walter, Xavier, Yolanda and Zoe. Not that I would have 24 children (me and my husband could have the other 2 letters), but it would be cool. :)
