what's in a name?

We've had names picked out for weeks now, so we've decided to announce them so all our friends can't steal them and use them for their own pending children.  (Brilliant, isn't it?)

If we have a boy, his name will be:
Daniel Shaniuk Kennedy

and if we have a girl, her name will be:
Hazel Kennedy Shaniuk

We decided months ago that we'd split the last name decision by sex, since we both like our last names.  We'll likely find out the sex in the next 4-8 weeks, and we're both very excited to know.  So far, we're just having a baby.  By then, we'll be having a girl or a boy.  It's the little things.


  1. love the first names!

    im intriqued by the last name decision. if you have a second kid (am i thinking too far ahead here?) will you do the same thing, or will you do the reverse of kid #1, whatever the sex?

  2. Thank you for clarifying! I had an idea on the names, but you kept saying she she she, I thought you might have found out = )
    So excited for you!! Four weeks will be here before you know it, and so will Christmas!! Does this mean we might have to take the karaoke party to the hospital?

  3. I think we haven't decided what to do with subsequent last names. We both feel we'll want the kids to have the same last names, but we don't want either of us to feel left out. So for now, we're going with 'We'll wait and see,' but our guts say the first child chooses the last name. :)

    Diana, I would LOVE a karaoke party at the hospital. I am certain that the nurses and doctors would welcome the extra noise, and the babies will just sing along! But Christmas feels so far away right now.
