My wife and I our due with our first baby on May 13th 2005. Which is confirmed within 95% to be a girl.
We have decided to name her Makenna, and our last name is Cummings.

When we were dating, my wife and I, at age 16 (wow, ten years ago)...yeah, I was a Queen fanatic then too. I got to introduce her to the music and videos of Queen... and for my birthdays, my girl would always hook me up with Queen!!

(She bought me 8 remastered Queen cds for my 17th birthday...not bad on part time babysitting money!)

I always joked back then that we would "name all of our kids after Queen members".

Tonight, in the car coming back from the restaurant, I came up with:

Makenna Taylor May Cummings

Honestly, what do you guys think??
Not only do I think the name is cute, but I like it for these reasons:

1) My mother loves the name May.
2) Our baby will be born in May.
3) Brian May
4) My mother-in-laws maiden name was Taylor.
5) I love the name Taylor.
6) Roger Taylor
7) I honestly want to work Deacon, Taylor, May, & Mercury into the middle names of our kids.

HONEST OPINIONS PLEEEASEEE!!

I think I'd go with Makenna Taylor. It looks feminine. Taylor May seems like a bit much and Makenna May doesn't flow like M. Taylor. There's my .02!

Congratulations Scott!!
I love your choice! One more reason: Aunt May, Peter Parker's aunt!!

Funny, I've always thought that it would be so cool to have a baby so I could name him Freddie. The closest Italian name to the Freddie nick is Federico. I don't particularly like it but I may settle for it if I ever have a baby! But unfortunately, here Federicos are usually nicknamed Fede so I may fail in my attempt anyway! :-). What other names can be shortened to Freddie?

Frederick in England. Not a particuarly nice name - of course you could just call him Freddie!

Right. But it would be hard to pronounce for most Italians. Anyway no baby in sight for now so I'll have plenty of time to find a good Freddie name with you guys if the time ever comes! :-)

Well I recently read that Reese Witherspoon's son is called Deacon and it is a really cool name now that I think of it

I think it is ridiculous... No offence to you personally but I don't understand why people need more than one first-name... One should suffice... Especially if it is such a rare name. Think of all the bad jokes your daughter will have to put up with.

But that's me...

I don't think anyone but the parents would know what her middle name is really for. Taylor is a very common first name for boys and girls these days.

Just to clarify-

First name- Makenna
2 middle names- Taylor & May
Last Name- Cummings

Someone suggested there are 2 first names??

You lost me there, as I don't know where that came from....there is only one first name.
