The Name Game

We've had lots of people ask us where Sloan's name came from.  We noticed the name while watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off when I was pregnant with Cooper.  We didn't know anyone personally with the name (which we kind of liked) and thought it worked well for a little girl and an adult.  However, when we found out we were having a boy we filed the name away for later.

When we found out baby number two was a girl we both still liked the name (which is saying something!).  We searched countless web sites for another name that we both loved.  When we came up empty handed we decided we were destined to have a Sloan in our family.

Rachel is a family name from my side.  My mom, Granny, and Great Great Grandma all have Rachel as a middle name.  We liked the way it sounded and Dave liked the story of Rachel from the Bible.

Cooper calls her Sloany, Dave calls her Sloany Girl, and Tam Tam calls her Sloany Bug.  She's also frequently called Sister and Sweet Pea.  She's a girl of many names all of which we think perfectly suit our sweet little one.

The end.
