We are on our way to Rockville to transfer two 8-celled, Grade 1 (highest grade) embryos. I need names. My sweet Matthew and his mates were Red, Blue, Yellow (and Green and Purple and Pink) Fish, respectively. I can't think of anything I like enough for these two. So, help a girl out? I'll even make a donation to your choice of charity if you give me my favorite. Remember...I am praying we'll be using these names for about twenty weeks...I just can't think that way right now but want to be sure they have names when I introduce them later!!!


  1. Periwinkle (Peri, for short)

  2. How exciting, Lori! I was looking back at some of my blog posts around this stage, and I was going to write and tell you that I only had one 4-celled, one 3-celled, and 2 2-celled the day before the ET, and that by ET day, we had 2 Grade-1 8-celled!!! I'm praying so hard for your little ones...BOTH of your little ones to make it. If you've been reading my blog, you can see that I'm horribly indecisive with fetal nicknames...I can't seem to stick with any of them...sorry I can't be of more help.


  3. I got nothin in the way of names...sorry! Just prayers! So thrilled with the way things have turned out so far!

  4. Lori I am so happy to hear the good news and will be praying for you and these little ones.

    I'll ponder on some names.

    With our first twins they were peanut 1 and 2, with our Zac and Evan they were my lil 'peas in my pod but called them lil' bean 1 and lil' bean 2.
    But I'm really not all that creative. I'm sure you will find just the right names for these littles!

    Hugs and prayers,
    Heather (heathershope - HP)

  5. Lori,
    I am praying for you today and always! I like M&M and Skittles. I always craved those while pregnant and they always make me happy on a rough day :-)

    Love, The Hetrich's from LBC

  6. Oh I need some names too! But I'm no good at this!

  7. Sticking with a Dr. Seuss theme...Thing 1 and Thing 2?!

    Hoping and praying that two babies come home with you, Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes would be cute for Halloween one day. :)

    Or famous duos...Lucy & Ethel, Bonnie & Clyde, Felix & Oscar, Tweedledee & Tweedledum, Captain & Tenille, Batman & Robin, Salt & Pepper, Moose & Squirrel, Bacon & Eggs, Bert & Ernie, Pea & Carrot, Darryl & Darryl, Charlie Brown & Snoopy, Frankie & Johnny...I'm winding down. :)

  8. Here's a whole list of famous pairs. Maybe you'll find something here:

  9. haha I love Thing 1 and 2!! :-) Praying for ya girl!

  10. Praying for you...

    All I can think of are Greek letters (from all those sorority years..ha!)...Beta, Pi, Phi (I was a Pi Phi=), Chi, Delta

    My friend named her children after gems: Amethyst, Emerald, Jasper...but those are not very neutral names...

  11. The line from "Horton Hears a Who" of "a person's a person, no matter how small" is so appropriate. So I like the continuation of the Dr. Seuss theme. As mentioned, Thing 1 and Thing 2, as well as Horton, Morton, JoJo, Maysie, Green Egg, Ham, Yertle, Mack, Norval, etc. I assume you'd prefer non-gender-specific; this list may help:

    It's 1:05pm, so I'm thinking good thoughts right this moment. Eight-celled, Grade 1 embryos? Is it too early to label your children as overachievers?

  12. I was thinking Thing 1 and Thing 2 also for the dr duras theme or hugs and kisses....praying they'll five you lots of those over the years :)

  13. Please forgive all the spelling errors and auto corrections in previous post. Silly phone....

  14. Good Luck!!!!
    I'm not very good with names but......
    egg and eggbert
    Tator and tot
    spick and span
    Tinkie winkie
    lala poe
    Barney and fred
    yogi and booboo or bobpsie
    flick and dot
    squirt and dot
    P and J

    I hope that helps!!! Can't wait to hear some great news!!!

  15. Lori !!!!
    Im so happy for you !
    I so much hope all our prayeres will be answered - we are many people praying for you here.
    My name suggestion is Victor and Victoria ( The winners )
    LOVE Angie

  16. Sending so many prayers and good wishes your way that they both stay comfy for a full nine months.
    As for names, I don't have a clue but my Chipmunk suggested Peanut Butter & Jelly;)

  17. Peek and Boo...Peek-a-boo! I see you! Both of you!

    Praying that your little ones stay right where they need to be for the next 37 weeks!

  18. Bun 1, Bun 2 or Honeybun 1 Honeybun 2 (a take off on having a "bun in the oven")

  19. Hi Lori this is Danielle's mom I like peanut butter and Jelly only because that is what I call my little two Danielle is Peanut and Amaya is Jelly. But other than those I like Little Pink Fish or Gold Fish and Orange fish. Danielle said Periwinkle, since they are a pair....she said name one Pair and the other Winkle = PeriWinkle...LOL



  20. Hmmm...things I call the kids:
    Icky & Sticky (the boys ;)
    Heckle & Jeckle (the boys again ;)

  21. Sugar and Spice. Faith and Hope
    Prayers for success!

  22. Ok, I thought of Thing 1 & Thing 2 before I even read the others ;) How about Pooh & Piglet?

    Best wishes, Lori! Jackie

    R2-D2 & CP-30 (from the kids!)
    Ricky & Lucy
    Hmmm...have to think about this some more....Love ya!! :)


  25. Jellyfish, anemonies, and corals, are just a few of the beautifully-named sea creatures that form symbiotic relationships with fish. You could give them a name like that to keep a strong name connection with Matthew.

  28. OOps I'm sorry Danielle is mad at me because I forgot to tell you that she said Periwinkle is a mix of Blue and I said wow you are right I guess she just wanted her teacher to know that she knew her colors.
    So Peri-fish and Winkle Fish
