We are very original here, at the Boring homestead.
All of our first names begin with "J". All of our middle names begin with "L". In fact, 5 out of the 6 of us have the SAME middle name. Yes, my husband and I have the same middle name. Josie is the odd ball ( in oh so many ways). Her middle name is Lynn, vs. the Lee that we all have. I liked Josie Lynn better than I liked Josie Lee and back then, I didn't know she would be my only girl. Some of the grandmothers have the middle name of Lynn as well so it's not a complete shut out.
And, of course, all of our last names begin with "J".
I know. Corny much?
None of the names are that complicated. But,there have been a few instances of mispronunciation and spelling.
Jayce: (rhymes with Ace) Sometimes misspelled Jace. Or mispronounced Jay-cee. But, understandable.
Josie: Not much confusion here.
Jarrett: Hardly ever mispronounced but often misspelled. Again, understandable.
Jeven: Now, this one gets interesting. Not a name you hear often. And, usually not within a Caucasian family. Just sayin'. We knew when we named him , that we would be repeating ourselves. "Kevin?" "No, Jeven." "Devin?" "Nope, Jeven".
When I was pregnant with Jeven, we argued on how we were going to spell it for a long time. I wanted J-e-v-i-n. At the time, my husband was working with a Kevin that he really didn't care for. So, he wanted J-e-v-e-n. As you can see, he won. But, that's ok. Looks right.
Again, his name does get misspelled. Understandable. I'm fine with it. Really.
But this? This is a little ridiculous, don't ya think?
