Names :)

It's time to share the names :)

We've known them for a while, but we are still working on the full names. I just couldn't hold it in any longer. So, I randomly picked today to post them.

We actually picked out baby girl's name last summer. We decided if we ever had a little girl, we knew her name. Our boy name was on our list while deciding on Cohen's name last year, but this time we still debated between it and another for a bit.

Though we do know what we are going to call them, we've not exactly decided on middle and/or first names. Well, I'm pretty sure we have for baby boy, but we have not for baby girl.

I know, I've already posted these, but I love them. Here are our most recent pics of their sweet faces :)

Here is my most recent pic with them. The picture I posted in my 20 week post was taken with my iPhone and it didn't really fit well next to my comparison. So, I took one in my alittletootight Easter dress over the weekend in the same ole stance and place....


As seen above, baby A is baby girl and baby B is baby boy. The doctor said this is determined by who is closer to the cervix. He said this could change, but probably will not.

Since A comes before B... and ladies come first....

Baby girl's name is.....

Baby boy's name is....

Our sweet twinkies will be Knox & Sloane :)

I love their names.

Honestly, we came up with Sloane came from Entourage. We've been watching it since it started, six years ago, and every season it seemed we would talk about the name Sloane. For those who don't watch, it's one of the actresses name in the show. As I mentioned above, last summer when we were watching it, we decide the name would be at the top of our list of girl names :)

We just really like the name Knox. I haven't a clue where either of us heard it first. I went to high school with a guy and Knox was his last name. We visit Dallas a lot and frequent Knox/Henderson area, haha. It was on our boy list when picking with Cohen, but ultimately, we decided Cohen should be Cohen. It fit perfectly. Now, his brother will be Knox :)

How cute are their first personalized gowns? I LOVE them! SheSheMade made them. I've had them for weeks and I've been so anxious to share. When they arrived, I might have shed some tears seeing their name for the first time on something. Hormones.

From the practice I've had, I think gowns will be a blessing when the twins are young, not walking yet and having lots of diaper changes :) I'll probably be stocking up.

We've definitely heard of kiddos/adults with both names (prior to and after deciding), but we don't mind. It's simply inevitable to go your whole life without having the same name as someone. Of course I hope the names don't become as popular that the majority of their school class would have it in common, haha.

I will post the rest of their names as soon as we decide all of Sloane's. Knox's first name is shared throughout all sides of our family.

  1. cute names!! I love the name Sloane but my husband never went for it. Boo :( I also like the name Knox, very different and I don't think you can make a nickname out of it..can you?? I can't wait to hear the full names. I wish you all the best with this pregnancy.

  2. Beautiful names! Sloane is currently my top pick for a girl (not that I'll be having a baby anytime soon :), and I love Knox too! They're definitely going to be cool kids with names like that. Congrats again!

  8. Cute and they work well together! My mind immediately went to Ferris Beuller w/ Sloane, but that's a good thing! And Knox is actually a family name for us.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I LOVE these names ... and it's too funny how you came to Knox. Every time I'm in Dallas, I go see my on-again, off-again off of Knox-Henderson :) Know that area well!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love those name, I am a big fan of unique, original names. I don't know anyone personally with either of those names, although Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came to mind, as they have a Knox also.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I LOVE those names!:) When we named our daughter Alayna, we thought for sure it would be semi-unique to her (since we "thought" we created it by combining Grandma's names). When she started Kindergarten last year, there were 3 "Alayna's" with different spellings in her grade!:/ Oh well, she's still unique to us and we have a sweet story to go with it! Love, hugs and blessings to you all! Prayers for an uneventful pregnancy and delivery!♥

  16. Love the names you have picked out. I have been stalking my blogger dashboard all morning waiting to hear the announcment of your precious wee-ones names. Im so excited for you and Brent.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh goodness, I can't tell you how much my heart jumped when I read these two beautiful names! Both have a special meaning in my heart. My mom's maiden name is Sloan (no e), and my given middle name is Sloan. It's on the list of potential family names to use in some form or fashion when we (hopefully!) have babies one day. And I live in Knoxville (and thus, Knox County), so naturally I love that, too! What perfect names for such perfect babies! I can't wait to "meet" them!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. So unique and so perfect! And the gowns are adorable.

  24. Love their names, they coordinate perfectly with each other. I have to say this too, my sister lost her first little boy at 24 weeks last summer, and just found out she's pregnant with twins too! She also has PCOS. Miracles all around! :) God is good!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love their names! My BFF's middle name is Knox & I've always love it! As for sloane? Love! Love entourage too & that's the first thing I thought of when I read sloane

    ReplyDelete

  28. Great names! As soon as I heard Sloane I thought of Entourage- but also Ferris Bueller's Day Off!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the names! My little man is Knox William... He will be 2 on Cohen's birthday. Isn't that funny?! Btw, I had the name picked out before Angelina Jolie even had her twins!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOVE LOVE LOVE the twins names! Sloane is a precious baby girl name and Knox is just as equally perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the name Sloane! It reminds me of one of my favorite movies, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". :) And Knox was on our short list when we were deciding on names for our newest little one that will be here in June. It was between Knox and Finn, but Finn eventually won out.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. Picking baby names is SO hard... we're due with our first boy in a month (eek!) and went back and forth for MONTHS on a unique, different, uncommon name. I feel like its a fine line between trendy and crazy (haha), but I absolutely LOVE the names you picked and think they go so well together, too! Best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think this is my first time commenting on your blog but I've been reading for quite some time now. I LOVE LOVE those names! They're going to be so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love them both! I knew you would come up with unique, cute names!!! And I was right! :) And love the gowns - adorable!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Great names! I love that they're different without being weird! I know a girl with Sloane as her middle name, but I don't know anyone named Knox.

    I've heard that those gowns at the best for babies because they're so easy to do middle of the night diaper changes in and stuff! I've stocked up on them for our little boy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love their sweet names! Very cute!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love them both - I love that all your names have been somewhat unique.

    Can't wait to hear their full names

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love, love, love the names! One of my girlfriends has a Knox and I think it is the cutest. We love the Knox-Henderson area, too! Yum, yum Chuy's. ;)

    I think Sloane is a beautiful name for your beautiful little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I've loved the name "Sloane" since first seeing Ferris Buller's Day off (Sloane Peterson!) I think it's a perfect name for your little girl since I know she will be gorgeous with dark brown hair (like the Sloan from Entourage and FBDO).

    I love one syllable names -- but I don't think I'll ever give my kiddos a one-syllable name because or last name is one syllable and it seems to flow better with longer first names.

    Great names! Congrats again! Much love!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Love the names! They fit with each other :) I've been thinking about Knox as a possibility for a future son's name as well!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love their names! Sloan (without the "e") is actually a family name of mine! And I babysat a Knox for about 8 years! I'm so glad they are doing well!

    ReplyDelete
  60. love love love the names. PERFECT!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love them! I just told my husband over the weekend that I want a baby named Sloane!

    I am so truly happy for you both! I get chills everytime I think about these two precious babies!

    God has great plans for your family!

    Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yay!for baby names! I love different names and these are two very cute names indeed!!! I always had a bunch of people in my class growing up with the same name and always had to put my last initial on my papers.... I love names that are not as common! We just knew Paxton would be sort of different when we picked it... had only heard it as a last name... but now there are "Paxtons" coming out of the wood-works!!!! HAHA! LOVE the gowns!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. YAY! Thanks for sharing :) I've never met anyone with either of these names, and they're wonderful to hear. You look very cute in your Easter dress!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Beautiful names! I love them! I watch Entourage too and LOVE Sloane! :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. LOVE the names! I have never heard of Sloane being used for a girl but I absolutely LOVE it!! Can't wait to hear their full names!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I LOVE those names! And, those gowns are just adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love the names! And those gowns are adorable! I bought a onesie from her for my BFF that just had a baby - love her stuff! You look great!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Beautiful names you have chosen for your precious twins! I agree with others, that they sound good together, also. Knox sounds like a future baseball player, and Sloane, is just beautiful, and I can picture her with long dark hair, like her Mommy's! The little gowns are absolutely adorable, love the colors you chose, they are perfect!! It is so special to see their names on an outfit. Now they have an identity, instead of just being babies. Can't wait to see them on Sloane and Knox! Really sweet!
    Continued good wishes for a happy, healthy pregnancy. God Bless!
    Sending Hugs!

Oh, and I also love Piper for a girl! :) That's our girl name if we ever have a girl!

  117. In college I babysat an Olivia Sloane. It was a double name and she had so much personality to live up to her big beautiful name. She's a precious, sweet girl an I still find myself hoping someday I have a little one as wonderful as Olivia Sloane. It's a LOVELY name. :)

    I adore Knox too even if I have no story to accompany it. Ha

    I love your name choices!

    ReplyDelete
  118. My little girl is named Sloan and we too got it off of Entourage. I was reading some of your comments and I see a lot of your reader's husbands vetoed the name. I think if they saw the character on Entourage, they might change their mind ;) Congratulations! You will love having multiples.
