We got his name from Jonathan Taylor Thomas from Home Improvement (the TV show). His middle name is the same as his dad's and grandfather's.
We stole his name from my sister! Ha! We were told the whole pregnancy that Ethan was a girl and it wasn't until a 3rd ultra sound I had at 8 months that he was a boy. My sister just so happened to be pregnant at the same time and I asked her what names they had picked out. She said Ethan for a boy and Abby for a girl. I was due 4 months earlier so we took her name. Luckily she had a girl, so no hard feelings! Ha! His middle name is the same as his dad's. All the men in Justin's family (brothers, dad, grandfather) all have the middle name Michael.
We were going through names one day in the car and I threw it out there and Justin actually liked it. We decided to go with this spelling because his last name is Creole/French so it fit. Of course we went with Michael. Yeah, yeah I know, Michael Jackson. Trust me I thought really hard about this and I figured by the time he was old enough kids his age really wouldn't know that much about Michael Jackson (now that he's passed the chances are really slim).
We got his name from Jenny McCarthy's son's name. She was on Oprah talking about her son having autism and I heard the name Evan and instantly called Justin. He liked it, so we went with it. The middle name is the same! I knew it's weird that they all have it, but I couldn't break the tradition!!!
I have a few names I like right now for little boys. They are Easton and Jacoby. I know, I have a thing with names that start with "J" and "E"! Girls names I have no clue. I've never had to think about it. I love old, unusual names (like my own). And yes if we had a girl her middle name would be Michael. I wouldn't want to leave her out! Ha! Plus I think it's cute when girls have boy names. I don't have to worry about names any more because Justin said we're done with having babies. I guess he decided to go get clipped! Ha! There's still a chance, so never say never!!! (knocking on wood right now though) So if y'all want to play along head over to Kelly's Korner and link up! Hope y'all have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day to all the momma's out there!!!
