We invite you to join us @promiseprenatal as blogger, photographer, worship leader, and busy mother of 2 (with one on the way) Ashley Wilkins (@ashleywilkins) shares her journey with you as a fellow #PromiseMama!
“I am married to my sweet husband, Eric, of almost 8 years and I’m a mom to 2 little boys (Moses – 2 & Lyric -11 months) and 1 little peanut who is due in August (and whose gender we will find out in exactly 1 week!). As you can imagine, being pregnant with 2 active boys has been quite a challenge. Being a mom has been the most transformational, emotional, and fulfilling time of my life – but I am constantly reaching out to others for advice, support, and encouragement because this road in motherhood can be lonely and out right HARD! I feel extremely blessed to be able to share some of my deepest struggles, greatest encouragements, and funny mom moments with each of you. So, who else is with me on this journey as a #PromiseMama? I would love to hear from you!

While there is no magic formula when it comes to naming your new little blessing, many of us are influenced by things that inspire us. For some it’s a family member or a name from our past, for others it’s as simple as liking the meaning or the way the name sounds. To help you get started on narrowing down your choices, we are posting a list of the top 10 names that are making their way up the list for 2015.
Last year, we learned traditional names still rank high on the charts, while pop culture continues to influence new parents. It’s too soon to know how 2015 will pan out, but here is what we’re seeing so far, starting with the girl names.
Violet: A classic English name meaning violet.
Adeline: A German baby name meaning pleasant and noble.
Lila: All kinds of names like Layla, Leila and Laila are growing in popularity. The American baby name Lila means of the people and the Greek meaning is lily.
Juliet: This name has been on the charts every year since 1880, but it’s finally gaining some popularity. This very known and classic name means young.
Beatrice: We love this meaning. It is an Italian name meaning blesses.
Elsa: Well, we probably don’t even need to say why this name is popular (thank you Disney). This is a Spanish name meaning truth.
Cora: Again, another classic English name. It’s meaning is maiden.
Aurora: Aurora was a mythical Roman goddess and the name is Latin. This name became very popular after Charles Perrault wrote the fairy tale ‘The Sleeping Beauty’.
Stella: A traditional girl name that means star.
Ivy: Ivy has been growing in popularity over the past few years. The meaning is the same as the name itself.
And for the boy’s.
Finn: The greatest hero of Irish mythology was a hunter-warrior called Finn McCool. The meaning of this name is blond soldier.
Emmett: This is a strong German name meaning powerful.
Silas: This oldie-but-goodie name is English and means the third.
Hudson: This English name is gaining in popularity. The meaning is son of the hooded man. We aren’t sure who the hooded man is-but we sure do love the name.
Asher: Great name! This Hebrew name means happy or blessed.
August: Another strong meaning. This is a Latin name that means majestic or dignity.
Declan: An Irish boy name derived from the famous Bearer, 6th century Irish St. Declan.
Jasper: An English name meaning jewel.
Ezra: Along with other Biblical names like Asher and Silas, Ezra is definitely up and coming. In Hebrew the name means helper.
Sawyer: A very classic, all boy English name meaning cuts wood.
