and his name is....


The meaning of Cullen is "good-looking; handsome".
We already know our baby boy is going to be a handsome little guy! ;)

I painted the wooden letters a few weeks ago. 
We've known for a while what we wanted his name to be.
The colors of the letters will be the colors in his room,
different shades of blue and an olive green. 
I can't wait to start decorating and setting up the nursery! 
I've already made a few Etsy purchases for his room that I will have to share soon!

p.s. just for the record i have never read a twilight book.
nor have i seen a movie. 
neither has billy.
we are not into vampires.

I’m glad you made that disclaimer because Twilight was the first thing that came to my mind, haha!!!! I like the name and know he’s going to be a handsome stud!!! :)

SG to SP said...

I love the name!!! I actually suggested that to my husband if we ever have a boy but my reason is because I have read the Twilight books and that's where I got the name from so that's why he nixed it. hahaha.

I love your little disclaimer "we are not into vampires" LOL!!

And, you don't have to be into vampires. It's more of a love story & it's just so good! Go out & get them & read them girlie!

Juani said...

This is so weird!One never hears that name,and now I hear it twice in the space of a month.A friend of mine had her baby boy last month,and he is named Cullen Christopher Bowers.She says he is named after a New Zealand rugby player that her husband has always been a fan of.But I just think it's a super cute name.

PS.Her boy is a total little stud,so I'm guessing you're right about the meaning of the name ;)
