I have honestly never seen so many beautiful, old-fashioned names in one place before. We read and re-read the names over and over, honestly. It makes me want to create some art pieces paying tribute to each of these names, especially those with your sweet stories behind them. It is easy to see that many of you have a very special place in your heart for the namesakes you suggested.
In the end, we chose to go with Eliza Jane...I first saw it and loved it, then my mom got in touch with me after seeing my blog and told me that this was her grandmother's name--how exciting! And my aunt, Ruby Jane (another lovely old southern name) was named after her. So that sealed it for us. (Michelle H., you were the first to suggest that name and I've already contacted you via e-mail--you're the winner of the collage piece in the photo here!)
What a special doll for so many to have participated in naming her! I will print this story along with all the name suggestions and keep it with the doll to be passed down. Oh thank you ladies--you have made me so happy!
Hope everyone has a beautiful week and it looks like I need to get busy--etsy shoppe is empty again and much else (exciting and otherwise) going on here. :)
