The Name Game... revisited...

Okay... I am sorry to even post this BUT I want to make sure...

I have no new pictures of our Melissa Faith...
Her orphanage does NOT give new photos 
It is so different than Mia's orphanage...



 I still love her name

BUT  

I am wondering 

IF we should go with...

Elizabeth?

Lizzie?



So can you PLEASE give me your 2 cents!

Whadda ya think?

Melissa- Missy

OR

Elizabeth- Lizzie

YOU

TELL

ME!

(one of the big boys said- Melissa and Lizzy- that ain't gonna work honey!)

I need feedback from you!

Thank you!!

Still think you should go with my suggestion....Meisi Faith, if you saw my Meisi Faith, you would agree, she looked similar to your little girl when she was the same age :-), and I have a Mia Linay as well, Mia and Meisi, and Meisi (pronounced like May Cee), sounds similar to Missy, but I love the Mei spelling of Meisi. I LOVE my girl and I love the name Meisi!

Melissa Faith gets my vote.

:). :). :)

Joy said...

Melissa!!! :-)

Susie said...

How about Melissa but not Missy but Lissy? Almost the same as Lizzie! I have to say, we are partial to Lizzie since we have one, but Lissy is very nice!

Jen said...

I personally love Elizabeth! It's such a beautiful name! : )

Debbie said...

I prefer Elizabeth. If you don't like Lizzy, you can call her Beth. That's what we did.

Sarah said...

Ah well, I'm not that helpful, because I really like both names. But, I think that I'd go with Melissa.

Rebecca said...

I would definitely go with Lizzy!

Rebekah said...

I really like both names, but I like Elizabeth better bc I am partial to Bible names. However, I really like it that all 3 girls have names that start with the same letter.

kristin said...

I do love the name Elizabeth, but I think she looks like a Melissa. I like Susie's idea - name her Melissa and call her Lissy.

Diane said...

I like Melissa Faith best. You could call her Lissa, Lisa, or Lissy for short. Actually, I *could* even like Lizzy as a nickname for Melissa.

Katie Lee said...

Not an Elizabeth fan...

Hanna said...

Melissa Faith! :) :)

I am also partial to Bible names (named our children from the Bible) but I do like the name Melissa, Missy OR Lissy. I also like Elizabeth, which has MANY choices for shortening, Liza, Lizzy, Beth, Eliza, Betty, and on and on. Or Lizbeth

Karrie said...

I think Lissy is a GREAT compromise!!!!

Melissa faith!

Julie said...

I love Elizabeth and "Lizzie." I also love Eliza, Ellie, or Liza as nicknames for Elizabeth! She looks like a Lizzie to me!

Emily said...

Though both are beautiful names, I am partial to Elizabeth!

Liz Tolsma said...

Just by looking at my name, you can guess what my choice would be :)

Love Elizabeth - Lizzie, I (personally) think she looks more like a Lizzie! She is super cute by the way, as are all your kids!!!

LOVE YOUR BLOG!

Debbie

Colleen said...

Melissa Faith! I like "Lissy".

Eileen said...

She's still Lottie to me, but I do love both Melissa and Elizabeth. I think since she's been Melissa on the blog, I've come to see her as a Melissa now. I also like how all of the girls coming home together are "M's".

David and Janet Hurley said...

Lizzy is my vote. We have a Jenna Elizabeth. Jenna after Jean--my mother's middle name, and Elisabeth (with an s) after Elisabeth Elliott

Nikki said...

I've always LOVED the name Elizabeth...it's classic, beautiful, and there are so many ways to shorten it if you want to! Either way, she's such a blessing! She has such a twinkle in her eyes!!!

Jolene said...

Melizabeth?!?!

Honestly, I like Elizabeth...

From the Erben Gang..... said...

I think she is Melissa-maybe you just don't FEEL sure since you don't have the photos. The next one can be Elizabeth:-) xo

K said...

I prefer Elizabeth, but I like Melissa too. Just not Missy. If you go with Melissa, then I'd go with Lissy as a nickname, as suggested by someone above. "Missy" is used in our house, in a teasing tone, when one of our girls is "in trouble".... as in "what do you think you're doing missy?"

PattiLynn said...

I like Lizzie best. For me, I don't like too many names with the same first initial...cause I start calling them by the wrong name, Benny, Bobby, Buzzy - hey You! haha, I'm sure you don't have that problem as you have several E's and A's already and are having M's on the way.

Another L name I like is Linnea / Linny. Too bad you can't get more pics to help.

Melissa ALL THE WAY!!
