I waited to post the names because we are still breaking them in with the kids. I am calling the kids by both names for the most part. These will be their legal names but we are giving them the choice to be called their given names. The first names were names that fit them, the first middle name has special meaning to us, and the second middle name is their given name. The names are:
Sophia Elizabeth Alina
Julian Marshall Edward
Liliana "Lily" Grace Ilona
Tate Jameson Igor
We call Ilona and Igor "Lily-Ilona" and "Igor-Tate" for now. Lily already answers to just Lily and they know who Tate is. I call Alina, "Alina," "Alinka," "Alinkatushka" (her favorite, I made up by combining a couple nicknames - she corrects me if I call her something else), and Alina-Sophia. If you ask her what her name is she will answer in a thick accent, "Sophia Elizabeth Alina," but when I try to ask her is she wants to be called Sophie or Alina she says, "Yes!" :)
Sophie and Julian aren't names that we had talked about before we came but they just fit them. We had only played with them once when we had to pick them. That part was crazy. Tate and Lily were names we were already planning to use. We had no other boy name that we really loved. A second girl was going to be Eva. Alina was nearly Eva, but it didn't suit her. We will see what sticks once we are home and what they choose once they start school.
