When we had our daughter we publicly shared her name, as soon as we knew she was a girl! We had Kylie’s name picked out for years. We knew if we had a girl, her name would be Kylie Marie Gordon. We liked the name Kylie and Marie is now a 4th generational middle name. Her name was easy!
Towards the end of my pregnancy with Kylie we decided that it might be wise to choose a boy name, just in case!! And we talked and discussed and we knew we wanted to use a family name for a boy. We eventually picked out a name, and well, now we get to use it!!
I have shared a few times our son’s name on social media but we haven’t publicly announced it!
So, without further adieu, our son’s name is Leland Breckenridge Gordon!
Leland is my paternal grandfather’s name. I have never met my grandfather and he actually passed away decades and decades ago. But we thought it would be nice to honor him and my father’s side of the family. Breckenridge is a family name from Daniel’s side of his family and it is actually his dad’s middle name.
We wanted to honor both of our paternal sides, so Leland Breckenridge Gordon it is!
And hopefully, we will meet him soon!!!
