Una bambina?

Arianna or Mirabella (Mira for short) or Isabella?

Erika and I are having a hard time deciding which name we would like to name our new baby! Oh, did I mention Erika is pregnant? Well she is!

Knowing that God wants to bless us with another girl we have been trying to think of a name for (her). Does anyone care to cast their vote?

After you cast your vote by leaving a comment I have one more request. If you think of it, please pray for us. As excited as we are about Erika being with child, this blessing also provides new challenges on the deputation trail. Pray for the baby to be healthy, Erika to be stress free and her to have the strength required for the demands of deputation.

OK - so leave a comment with your vote - Arianna / Mirabella / or Isabella

If we choose the name you pick, you win a brand new ipod. OK, not really.

Yay! Congratulations! Another cousin! Leslie and I vote Arianna, but we hope it's a boy.

What about Giuseppe, Saviero, or Umberto? You really need to be prepared for the possibility of a boy, no? But if it is a girl... I vote for Mirabella.

Any Barone baby is bella though... almost as much as ours!

CONGRATS!! C'mon on now...you guys sound like Ben, thinking there is not even a possibilty for a boy! :-) It could happen! If not though...I vote for Arianna, although I like all three!

Victoria said...

I had one boy, then 3 girls in a row - then, another boy!!! Not impossible!!:)

I like Isabella, but that's become really common. So, if you're looking for different - definately Mirabella. I like "Mira".

So happy for you both. WILL be praying, for sure!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Barone!!! Mirabella is definitely a unique name, but it sounds like a baseball player that happens to play for the red sox and we definitely don't want that! lol :P My vote is Arianna. It's more beautiful, in my humble opinion... :)

Marco - boy
Arianna - girl

DEEDK said...

I like Arianna! What are the meanings? That would always sway a vote. AND using Airy as a nickname might not be the most flattering. :D
Congrats!!!! My second choice would be Isabella. Lots of nickname options.

Arianna - Very holy one
Isabella - My God is a vow
Mirabella - Of incredible beauty
