And the Winner Is…. (and a name!)

I changed the rules for my baby gender guess giveaway! If you left a comment on that post you were entered to win and the winner is….. TIFFANY :) Tiffany has a cute blog and the cutest little girl – you should check out The Harris Life.

And what did she win? A small jar Yankee Candle – Spiced Pumpkin scent. Yummy!

And now for the big name announcement: Thomas Earl Dixon

Bill and I have like this name for a while now. Thomas is my grandfather’s middle name and also some of the William Dixon’s middle names. Plus, we just really like the name Thomas. Earl was my great-grandfather’s name and I have always said if I had a boy I was going to name it after him! We’ll call him Thomas.

We considered all of your name suggestions (but seriously, orange?!?!) and threw around several other names that we like but nothing seemed “right.” So, we went with our first choice!

Now, all we have to do is wait 20 more weeks to meet Baby Thomas!

    Great choice! Looking forward to seeing pictures of Thomas and Will together in just a few more months!

  5. Honey says:

    Thomas is also your Uncle George’s middle name. Earl is your Uncle David’s middle name!

    I love your name choice! I’m sad I didn’t win though :(

    We like your choice for the name! Several relatives had the names. I had an Uncle named Earl (my Dad’s youngest brother-last of 8 boys). No girls in my Dad’s family! Poor Mrs. Taylor!! Grand daddy’s grandfather was named William Thomas and called Thomas. Our new little boy will be a good representative of many past relatives. Love him already….

    Your Pawpaw teared up when I told him Baby Thomas’ name. I suppose I’ll love him anyway. HA
    But I think Honey had the best name for him and you know what that is.!!! He’ll be precious too.
    Maybe Thomas Earl will have brown eyes.

    Didn’t the “orange” suggestion make you laugh? You know I was only kidding with you and Bill. I LOVE the name you’ve selected. So much history behind both.

  10. Amber says:

    Oh, you weren’t serious about orange? It was our runner up – Orange Juice Dixon, OJ for short :)

      Well, now I have a great nick-name for Thomas!! (J/K). When I was working at the courthouse, we had a lawsuit filed against a man and his name was “Ford Sedan Walker”. TRUE!! I wish I’d kept a list of the great names we came across.
