NAME THOMAS' FUTURE WIFE !!!!

Thomas called me this morning.  He has a rye sense of humor.  Thomas told me, as I said before, his future wife does not want to use her real first name on New York State of Mind, and I understand that.  As yet, she has not picked a named and Thomas is getting tired of having her Thomas' lady.  So he came up with the idea of seeing if the people on New York State of Mind could come up with a name for his soon to be wife, that she approves.

Now here are the rules:  Most Old Order Mennonite and Amish names are from the Bible, so Thomas would like it to be a name from the Bible.  Also, it must be a name different from anyone else's on New York State of Mind.

I asked Thomas if he has her permission and he put her on the phone - she agreed to this.  So here is a bit about her.  She is 18 years old, as is Thomas.  Of course she is Old Order Mennonite as is Thomas.  She is a hard worker, Thomas says. She is kind and does for others.  Also, she does quilting, sewing, canning, crochet, and more.  What put her at the top of my list is she loves dogs and cats - especially dogs.

So here it goes.  What do you think her name should be?

From the Book of Job- In all the land there were none so fair as the daughter's of Job. His first born was Jemimah. That is what I would call her.

Mary

Good Morning Mary,
That is a real nice name, too. I also thought Mary would be a nice name. Of course, that was my Mother's name.

Ruth. I know Ruth in the Bible was speaking to her mother-in-law when she said, “Entreat me not to leave you,
Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.", but that is what Thomas' lady is doing also. She is coming to live where Thomas is.

Good Morning Vickie,
That, too, is a beautiful name. I use to have an Aunt Ruth. Also, remember that Bible quote.

Well, Vickie, you beat me to it😄. I would also suggest Ruth. "Great minds think alike"! LOL. Blessings all, Carol

Good Morning Carol,
Vickie, beat you this morning. That name also reminds me of a friend of mine who was ordained a minister. He asked his wife what she thought of the ordination
and she gave him the quote that Vickie had. Her name wasn't Ruth, though.

I like the name, Esther, and it has become more popular in the last few years than in a long time.

Good Morning magnoliasntea,

Good Marilyn, the first name that popped into my head was Ruth. But I also love the name Sarah. My Grandmother was Ruth and my mother-in-law was Sarah. Two beautiful women in my life. Have a wonderful day! Cathy in Webster

Vanssmomc said...

Oh my, in my head it is faster than my fingers type!! Good Morning Marilyn!!

New York State Of Mind said...

Good Morning Cathy,
Ruth is a great name. I like Sarah, too, but we already have a Sarah on New York State of Mind. Both Sarah and Ruth are beautiful women.

Hope you have a wonderful day, too,
Marilyn

Hi Folks,
Keep those names coming in!! I have to go to the hospital for some tests. No, I am not sick, just for my annual physical with the doctor. So, I will be off for while, but I will see that Thomas and his lady get all your names.

I always liked the name Leah, I think Jacob's wife. I knew a Leah years ago, as a fellow Girls Scout Leader, fun and very caring.

While I don't have a suggestion, I like everyone elses. I may be partial to Dinah (; but that woudn't be my first choice. It will be fun to see what Thomas and his lady choose.

Hi Heritage Hall,

That is a beautiful name and I like the meaning.

Hello Folks,
Keep names coming. Here is the status so far. One of the names put on here is her real name. I said no one would know if it is her real name or not, I wouldn't tell. But she still wants to see if she gets more names. She said she would decide on Friday what would name she would use on New York State of Mind. So keep those names coming in.

This is so funny - I was just thinking about that and wondered if one of us had suggested a name that was her real name. Here's another - Elizabeth.

Mary

New York State Of Mind said...

Hi Mary,
Yes, someone suggested her real name. I think that is funny, too. Elizabeth is another great name.

I missed yesterday. I love all the names listed here. Whichever one she chooses, will be a good one.

New York State Of Mind said...

Hi Lily,
She is still taking names, if you have one you would like to put on. Tomorrow, she will decide what name she is going to use.
